Hello, I’m Merissa!
I’m a newlywed and a dog mom to the sweetest labradoodle, Riley.
My family fills my soul like no other.
I’m a daydreamer and 75% of my day is spent off inside my mind in some far away place I want to travel to. What I’m trying to say is that I will travel anywhere for your big day or family session.
My favorite things are:
My Husband, Jason and pup, Riley • Board Games • Ice Cream • Tom Hanks • The Eiffel Tower • Iced Chai Tea Lattes • Sunshine • Spending the 4th of July with my best pals • Last but definitely not least- my crazy, loud, inappropriate, loving, will do anything for you family!
I’ve loved photography for as long as I can remember. As a young girl, the moment I would fill up my film rolls I would make my mom go to one hour photo to get them developed! In high school I fell in love with the darkroom and wanted to be a family’s personal photographer when I grew up. I received my degree in Photojournalism from Central Michigan University, FIRE UP CHIPS! I’ve worked as a photojournalist in Jackson, Kalamazoo, and Muskegon, MI and Lubbock, TX before starting my own photography business in 2010. I am a true photojournalist at heart and approach every session with a documentary feel. I’m blessed for my photojournalism experiences but equally as excited to be part of your family milestones.
