Tori

I have had the privilege of shooting this beautiful 14 year old for about three years I do believe.
She is such a talented and gifted dancer with a heart of gold.
It is a joy working with her and her family. They have been such a big support through my growth as a photographer, and it is so appreciated.

I always wanted to do a trash the shoe session, and this was just as fun as I thought it would be. Her shoes were what us in the ballet world refer to as “dead”, meaning little to no support and very uncomfortable, hence why we were able to have her en pointe, on concrete. She was a trooper through it all and the photos are wonderful.

All-Star Couture: Fashion Show

Here are a few shots from the All-Star Couture Fashion Show that took place back in September.

This was an all male fashion show. The first one in Grand Rapids, actually. It featured some of our local athletes modeling fashion from local stores.

It was so much fun! I absolutely love fashion shows, and I would love to shoot a lot more of these. I felt so at home while snapping, it was an incredible sensation.

I also had the opportunity to capture the athletes/models as they prepped for the runway.

Jamie – Deux Cheeks

One of my favorite things about being a photographer, inadvertently finding people you connect with.
That happened when I met this entrepeneur. We just hit it off and had such a blast together.

Jamie is the owner of Deux Cheeks eyewear, where she meticulously hand embellishes each pair of designer glasses.
This shoot is for a national publication, B.O.S.S-E Magazine, and that is very exciting for her and her business. I am excited to be the photographer she chose to use. Thank you Jamie!

Be sure to check out Deux Cheeks and their fantastic eyewear!

True Light Images Photography

 

I put together this sort of digital portfolio at the beginning of 2014.

It was sort of a motivation tool to keep me focused on my goals.

Hayley

It was such a pleasure to photograph this young aspiring teen model! Such a beauty! I see her going far in whatever it is she pursues and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this wonderful girl!!!

Brinley 6 months and Georgia 6 years

My beautiful nieces!!!

I cannot believe how fast they are growing and I am loving being able to capture these moments for my sister and her family!!

Cecil and kids

I always love collaborating with the lovely Latesha Lipscomb owner of I Got Face Cosmetic Concierge. This time was no exception. It was such a moving and wonderful experience being able to photograph this single father and his children. It is not every day you see a single dad step up the way he has. Kudos to him and all the other single dads out there taking care of their children!! You deserve so much more credit and recognition than what you get!!

Tonya – model

last summer I had the pleasure of photographing my cousin Tonya.

she wanted to update her portfolio and asked me to be the photographer. considering she has worked with some of the big names here in Grand Rapids I was honored. I loved working with her! It is always fun working with family and the fact that she is very professional made it all that much better.
