hey, friends!

The business stuff:

Real life only. Everything is documentary. That said, I do allow around 15 minutes for posed portraits during every session.

I am both a photographer and a filmmaker because I believe each niche is worth my time and passion and allows me to serve my clients in unique ways.

My main services are Fresh 48 sessions (in hospital photos with 24-48 hours of your baby's birth) and documentary family sessions that come in 2, 4, 8 or 12 hour packages. I hope to make birth photography a main service in 2019!

hey, friends!

The personal stuff:

I'm 33 years old & have lived in SE Michigan my entire life. Right now, we're in Milan, a tiny little town South of Ann Arbor.

I've been married for over 5 years to a professional musician by night & nerdy dude by day (ok, we're both nerds).

Together we have a 2 year old son, who is the perfect mix of both of us (passionate, strong-willed, affectionate, & musically inclined).

I'm pretty sure Lorelai Gilmore is my spirit animal.

I love serving at my church (Grace Bible Church of Ann Arbor) and listening to music, especially bands like Shane & Shane, All Sons & Daughters, Sigur Ros and Muse.

FAQ:

Where does the session take place? Family sessions take place in the client's home, or a mixture of in-home and a location where the client's family loves to visit. The location must be completely natural to them in order to produce the best images.

What is a Day in the Life session? Day in the Life sessions are just that - a documented day of your family's life. These range from 4-12 hours, so you can capture a really important part of your day or your entire day from the second the kids are up until they go to sleep.

Can we do any posing at all? Yep - I allow 15 minutes of posed portraits for certain sessions, as long as we talk about it ahead of time.

Will my shy kids be a problem? Nope! Having a kid of my own, I've learned some good tricks to get them to respond and be comfortable with my presence.

Will these family sessions work with only one child? Absolutely!

Why should I choose your products over places like Target or Costco? I'm all about my client experience, from the first second to the last second. We both (the client and myself) put a lot effort into our time together, so every family, bride or groom deserves to have the highest quality available. That's what I offer with my products, which I have meticulously chosen and prepared. When we have our first in person consultation, I'll bring samples of these products with me so you can see (and feel) the quality for yourself. Working with Tribe of the Beloved will be one of the best luxury investments you can make from start to finish.

What do you mean when you say, "luxury?" Okay, you probably were a little taken aback by that word. But here's the thing, luxury to one person is completely different for someone else. When I say that word, I mean that you are investing in art, which is, in fact, a luxury experience. It's not necessary, but it's wonderful and meaningful to have. I provide you with the best art your family will ever hang on its walls or display on its coffee table.

How do I pay? I accept all major credit cards, checks and cash. Your session fee will be paid at the time of booking during our in-person consultation, then all products will be paid for during the reveal & ordering session.

When do I get my photos? I have a very specific process that we start talking about with our first conversation. It goes something like this: Phone chat > In person consultation > Session > Post-session reveal > Delivery of product. The whole process takes no more than 3 weeks with the average booking.

Can I put my photos on Social Media? Absolutely! Every product comes with web-sized digital files (restrictions apply), or you can purchase full resolution images in a separate package.

What do we do during the session? For family sessions, follow your natural routine to the best of your ability. Typically, clients don't even realize I'm there with a camera after the first hour or so.

What do you take pictures of during family sessions? Everything. Everything is on the table. That said, I take extreme care of your privacy, so no bare baby bums or breastfeeding images will be posted on my social media accounts or my website gallery unless express permission is given per image.

Should meals be provided? For weddings and Day in the Life sessions longer than 4 hours, yes.

How long will you be at the hospital during my Just-Born session? For Just-Born sessions, I am at the hospital for up to 2 hours, always during daylight.
