Hey, hey!

I’m Megan, the artist behind the lens. I’m thrilled you’re here and can’t wait to connect!

ABOUT THE ARTIST

When I am not pouring my heart into my work, you can find me anywhere outdoors, hanging out in a coffee shop, or nuzzled on the couch snuggling with my son, Ellis. My soul home lives on the water, near the pacific coast, on the shores of Lake Michigan, traveling by stream all around the world. I enjoy exploring the unknown, indulging in cheesecake, cuddling kittens, and spending quality time with the people I love. My happy place includes waking up early, wrapped in a cozy blanket with a fresh cup of coffee to watch the sunrise (preferably by a lake or in the mountains). I have a special place in my heart for outdoor, intimate concerts, morning hikes, and kayaking.

MY PHILOSOPHY

I believe your life is a beautiful work of art, and it’s meant to be shared with the world. I take a storytelling portrait style in my work that's meant to reflect the beauty and individuality of you and your loved ones. I am inspired by romance, intimacy, nature and seek to capture true emotion giving you an end-product that is real and authentic.

MY WHY.

I remember gazing down at my son three days after I brought him home from the hospital. I used to hold him on my chest, tear up, and hope that if I held him close enough that he’d stay small forever. I never knew that my heart was capable of a love so strong until that moment.

Throughout my first year with him I learned so much. I had doors open in my heart that I didn’t even know existed. I said things, and did things that I didn’t even know I knew or felt. It wasn’t until he came into my life that I realized just how quickly life goes by, and how important it is to document the life you share with the ones you love.

TELLING YOUR STORY.

Love is no easy feat. Whether in marriage, parenthood, or within yourself, it requires you to lean in when you want to run away. It forces you to pay attention when you’re tired and want to check out. It pushes you to be strong when you just want to break down. I’ve spent so many important moments in my life behind the lens, and I know how it feels to be missing from the images that tell such a significant part of your story.

As a mom, photographer, and friend, I want to document your life FOR you, growing with you through all of life’s goodness, so that you can continue to be a part of your story, and leave the documenting to me.

You are so loved, and no matter what season of life you’re in, know that you’re doing a great job. I can’t wait to meet you!
