You know how tax-people are always so slammed from like January – April? And then once Tax Day is over, they all breathe a collective sigh of relief because now they can stop working crazy hours until next year’s tax season? To be honest, I actually hang out with any “tax-people” myself nor do I […]

September Round Up – Detroit, Michigan


Do you really need an engagement session? This is a question that I know brides struggle with. You already have a million things on your wedding to-do list, most photographers charge extra for an engagement shoot (luckily, I don’t!), and your groom might be dragging his feet over getting his pictures taken. So, no wonder you’re questioning […]

Do You Really Need an Engagement Session?


You know what they say…there’s a first time for everything. Well, this was the first time I’ve ever literally gotten ants in my pants on a photoshoot. And if I had the chance to do it all again I would say, “heck yes!!”   “I knew I liked them the second they told me their […]


Adventure is Out There, Stoney Creek Metropark – Engagement Session


A mother-daughter dance where everyone joined in. A tear-jerking, surprise slideshow during the mother-son dance. Several blessing filled speeches. This wedding was so full of love, family, and happiness. I first met Nicole a few months prior to her wedding at a coffee shop. Unfortunately, Mike couldn’t make it to the consultation, and they were […]


Classic Michigan Romance, Cherry Creek – Wedding


I have been friends with Dominica for the majority of my life. We took our SATs together. We went to prom together. We were bridesmaids in each other’s weddings….and she was one of my very first paying clients back in 2011 when she booked me to do her high school senior photos.  So, excuse me […]

Hello, I’m Liv. – Detroit Photographer


It’s fall y’all! I don’t know why I just said “y’all” because I’m from Michigan. Please ignore, okay thanks. September is here and I am so excited. I cannot wait to watch Kona jump around in piles of leaves, go to my favorite apple orchard, and pull out all of my favorite fall clothes. However, […]

August Round Up – Detroit, Michigan


Summer is the best time to be in love, because you feel invigorated to go out, explore new places, and have late nights. As a native Detroiter, I wanted to share some of my favorite date ideas for new loves, established couples, locals, and visitors to my favorite city.     “Paris might be the […]


Morning, Afternoon, & Evening Date Ideas – Detroit, Michigan


These two are such happy, funny, positive people and I genuinely had so much fun with them on their shoot! As you’ll see in some of the rooftop photos, Omais and Carly aren’t afraid to get a little silly and carefree. Omais keeps Carly laughing constantly, and Carly take such good care of him. They […]


Urban Golden Hour, Detroit Michigan – Engagement Session


Let me start off by saying: I absolutely love Brooke and Ben. I first met this couple when they asked me to photograph their engagement session. Ben is serious, quiet, and a little bit reserved. However, he loves to have a good time and really loves watching his bride have a good time. And Brooke […]
