We used Chris to photograph our family on the beach while renting a house in Michigan for a week. From start to finish, Chris was a dream to work with. She responded to my request for information immediately when I was researching options. She offered tips in advance about what to wear and thoughts for poses. When I expressed concern that my little grandsons wouldn't be cooperative during the shoot, she asked what they liked (cars, cars, cars) and the day of the shoot, showed up with a box of model cars she no longer needed. The boys came to life and were very cooperative when they saw that box! She took a lot of shots, was friendly and put everyone at ease during the shoot. It was like a member of our family was taking pictures, not someone we just met. It showed up in the finished product as the photos are fabulous. She posted the proofs within a week of the shoot and handled all my follow up inquiries promptly. Just can't say enough good things about our experience with Chris!


My extended family booked Chris for a session and had the BEST experience.  She made it super easy and painless, even with seven boys!  Chris is very down to earth and has a great sense of humor, which put everyone at ease and making us more relaxed for the photos.  The images are beautiful- my siblings and I are so happy to have these perfect pictures of our children, grandparents, etc.  I highly recommend her.


When I realized just a few weeks in advance that all 17 of my family members would be in New Buffalo on a Friday morning, I contacted Chris. She was very gracious and squeezed us into her schedule. With uncertain weather and a crowd including a 4, 3, 2 and 1 year old, Chris still managed to capture the tone and joy of our family on the incomparable Lake Michigan shoreline. She was quick, creative and patient and we are all grateful.  Love our portraits.


I apologize that this is so long overdue, but I wanted to say thank you for taking pics of my friends and I at Round Barn last spring. All 12 of us truly cherish them. We recognize we have a wonderful and unique friendship, and I can't thank you enough for capturing it. Thanks so much! 


Chris is a truly gifted photographer - her love for her craft is so evident in the photographs she produces. She puts her heart and soul into every job, and is very professional, yet very endearing and so friendly. Her photographs are an extension of her heart. Go to her website and look at the many examples of her work - you will not be disappointed. Her professionalism continues beyond the photo session/wedding, and you will feel as if you've made a friend for life...

She made my daughter feel so at ease, I brought my son back for his senior pictures. If you want an energetic photographer who cares, give her a call! It almost brought tears to my eyes!


You captured him perfectly! You have the tears flowing....(regarding her son's senior session)


Working with Chris was one of the best experiences we've ever had. Her ability to create a comfortable and relaxing environment while making the photographs incredible....amazing!

After two years of planning, our daughter's wedding was over in the blink of an eye. All we have left are memories and the most amazing photos that captured every single details fo the happiest day of our lives since her birth. My daughter wanted to enjoy her day as much as possible without being pulled away from the fun, and I wanted to have creative and different photos. Both our wishes came true thanks to Chris. You will never find an easier person to work with or a more talented one....stop your search here, you have found the best!


What an amazing album we have because of you! Fantastic quality and an amazing imagination is what makes Chris so unique.

We took our family for our first family portrait ever and she had all five of our kids' attention the whole time. The session flew by with no stress and of course, the pictures are beautiful!


The reason I chose Chris to take our family pictures is because of her creativeness. She is an "out of the box" thinker. She sees things others can't. It is truly a gift. I think her work is amazing and she's very creative. I have recommended her to everyone I know. She is simply amazing!


Once a year my family gets together. I thought it was time to remember the moment by hiring Chris to take pictures. We asked her to come to our lake house....she was creative, accomodating and made it so easy for everyone! She took amazing pictures and we are so happy we have them as memories.


We are still enjoying our family pictues and will continue to do so for many years. Everyone enjoyed the experience of sharing our special family gathering with you, Chris!


Our experience with Chris was outstanding!! The photographs are not only such great quality, but the loactions were great and she's willing to listen and provide what we are looking for!
