It best to get a head start on booking vendors, photographers and anything that involves another business for your wedding.  The reason being these companies could book your date if you wait too long.  A lot of people book their photographer a year in advance.  Once wedding season picks up the dates book up like wildfire.

If you have any questions please contact me anytime!!!

Small print here!

  • The sessions need to take place in Kalamazoo, Michigan
  • If the sessions run longer than a half hour then the price increases to a minimum purchase amount of $100 and the $50 session goes out the window.  This means you need to be prepared when you get to the location and be on time.
  • If you are looking for a specific pose, or idea you may have then I will need a list of ideas a WEEK before the session.  (NOT the night before).
  • I am willing to discuss the amount of people to be in the photos.  However, you need to be aware that there will only be 4 photos of MY choosing that will make the cut. And again, it needs to last less than a half hour.

GOOGLE ME!!!!!!!!!

Google me!!!   Never in a million years did I ever think I would be Googling my business!!!  Well, here it is!  Check out the awesome reviews!! Refer your friends, family, co-workers and get the word out!!  Holiday sessions are coming up and I tend to book fairly quickly!!!  Make sure that you get your session appointment sooner rather than later….

Family Photo Session


It was a pleasure and a joy to photograph this family.  The Boelman family were the winners of the free session two 8X10’s, four 5X7’s and 16 wallets.  We had so much fun walking around Celery Flats.  The sunset was perfect and the kids were amazing.  This family has an amazing bond.  Mom and Dad have done an amazing job raising gracious and gentle children.

It was several years ago when I met Andrea and her daughter Myra.  Myra was in ballet with my daughter Ellie.  The girls hit is off immediately and to this day it doesn’t matter how much time they spend apart they connect right back together.  It’s such a blessing when you can find friends like that!

Why have a ‘Pre-Session’?

There are several reasons to have a ‘pre-session’ before your actual session.  However, I will only name a few…

  1.  We get to meet each other face to face…  This is probably the most important reason to have a pre-session.  If we don’t meet until the day of the session we have .04 seconds to get comfortable with each other.  During the pre-session, we get to talk and get to know each other.  I get to understand your goals for the session and you get to see you who you are entrusting with capturing important moments in your life.
  2. I get to meet your kids…  This one is just as important as number 1.  This may be the first time your kids are meeting me.  Even though we may have talked on the phone, Facebook or email.  I am a complete stranger to your children.  Kids are usually pretty comfortable in front of me, but if we have a pre-session I get to meet them and they are not as uncomfortable during the final session.
  3. We get to brainstorm on your session…  During the pre-session, we get to discuss ideas that you may have, and what you are expecting during the session.  Each session is custom made…  YOU get to decide HOW, WHEN and WHAT you want your session to look like.
  4. Questions answered…  Any questions you may have you can have answered beforehand.  YOU get my complete and full attention so not only is your session custom made for you, you get even more time with me to have any questions or concerns you may have answered.  Don’t worry, I even come to you for the pre-session!  This stress-free consultation is extremely beneficial for your session to be the best that it can be!

Now that you know why we have a pre-session, feel free to make an appointment today!!!


If you have any questions please feel free to contact me anytime!
