New direction, new website!

I designed my new website to draw attention to my graphic design & marketing skills, while showcasing some of my photography work.

Scroll effects reveal my business focus.



In the past year, my work has shifted more from wedding & event photography to graphic design & marketing. Since the end of Greater Lansing Woman Magazine, I no longer have the opportunity to photograph social events & fundraisers like I used to. I photograph corporate events and annual meetings for my clients, but I am no longer "around town" shooting events for the social pages.


 I've been working in the marketing field since 2011, and really began to focus on graphic design in 2013. My new website design reflects the shift in my business focus, and my clean design style!
