What's YOUR story? Here's mine!

~ Started shooting at 4 years old, but didn't become professional until 5th grade.

~ High School: L'Ecole Internationale De Geneve - not as snobby as it sounds... really!

~ College: University of Michigan - BGS (that's a Bachelor of General Studies) ...
majoring in journalism, photography & business.
Not quite as wishy washy as it sounds ... really!

~ Ann Arbor News: 3 years photojournalist, mainly sports (NBA finals, Rosebowl, March Madness)
... totally as cool as you might think!

~ Associated Press: 6.5 years covering Presidents and presidential wannabes ... by turns wild and tedious.

~ Freelance: Time, Newsweek, People, SNL, Washington Post, USA Today, New York Times,
LA Times, and many, many now defunct fabulous papers.

~ Penguin Putnam: Author/Illustrator with over 2,000,000 copies sold!
- Big Sister, Little Sister - 2000,
- I Was So Silly - 2002,
- Big Brother, Little Brother - 2004

~ Oh yeah... and 1,300 weddings and counting with 1,300 and counting super happy couples!

And yeah, my Michigan brides have voted me
"Favorite Michigan Wedding Photographer" a whopping 9 years in a row!
God, I love my job!

~ I've never met an animal or baby I haven't tried to talk to.
~ I'm a silly person who takes my photography business seriously.
~ Giving always feels better than getting.
~ I spent a lot of time learning to like coffee. WHY?!?!
~ Betcha can't hum a show tune that I won't know.
~ My happy place is in the water. Any kind, any time …
which explains why so many of my clients end up in the water!
~ Apparently I look JUST like someone you know!
~ Be nice, play fair, be curious and you'll be happy.
~ My wonderful family makes me all gooey inside.
~ I still cry at weddings.
~ I make up goofy songs about my kids, my hubby and my dog.
~ Any day I learn something new is a GREAT day.
I learn something new every day, so life is great!
~ I'm learning to tap dance.
~ If I can make it better, I will.
~ Lived in Europe for 15 years, yet can still only speak baby talk Italian and French.
~ My Dad was an photoshopped word. We moved a lot.
~ I've been told by clients that I melt into the background during shoots. Inherited skills perhaps?
~ High school seniors are the most fascinating people on earth.
~ The only thing I can't tolerate is intolerance.
