capturing Your Memories with an "Up north" perspective


I have been living and working in the Traverse City area for the past 20+ years. My camera allows me to capture your family within the natural beauty surrounding the Grand Traverse Area; lakes, woods, dunes, it's all here. And these settings provide great backgrounds for capturing that "Up North" feel in your photos. 

My style is relaxed and natural, allowing the true personalities of my client to shine through.
