I’ve been shooting for a long time – over 40 years. I love creating stories with my images and pride myself on shooting portraits of people who walk into my studio telling me that they “always hate themselves in pictures.” Everyone has something beautiful and unique within him or her and I make it my goal to bring it out on “film.”


Having photographs shot can be stressful for many people - I am always aware of that and make every effort to put the customer at ease by having casual conversation and providing positive feedback all through the photo shoot. I will give as much direction as the subject seems to want - some people like to be told how to move and pose, others seem to find it off-putting. I try to find that out right away so we can work together well. If someone seems very hesitant, I might show them a few shots on the back of the camera that I know are flattering. That often helps them relax into the shoot, knowing that they can and do look great!

Favorite Locations:

I love to shoot outdoors in natural light for dating photos - it's less stressful for the customer than a studio shoot and the look is natural and casual. I shoot in downtown areas near my home (Northville, Novi, Farmington), parks and nature preserves and sometimes outdoor cafes or restaurants when we can get approval.
