i am a wife and new mom (lord, have mercy!). i attended and graduated from hope college in 2013 with a degree in learning disabilities. from there, i have been blessed with a wonderful and rewarding job as a special education teacher in jenison. while in college i began to discover the joy i received when tapping into my creative side (to be honest, i never really even knew i had one... weird). i received a new camera as a birthday gift from the man who is now my husband and the rest is history! those candid, joyful, goofy, raw, emotionally heavy (and sometimes, even borderline ugly) moments are my absolute favorite to capture. but i'm working on my posing game, too. i would be more than happy to capture these moments of you, your children, your family, etc.!
