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.
