I'm a light chaser, coffee lover, wife+mama, design enthusiast, Michigan native, and the heart behind KGP.
The images on this page were taken of my family by the talented Emilee Rose Films.
I met the love of my life when I was 20, although, we did not know it yet. Life took us our separate ways, but we found our way back to one another a decade later. I know my purpose was fulfilled the moment we brought these two beautiful souls into this world. I look into the eyes of our five-year old and I see myself. He is witty, bossy, funny and likes things his way. No one would link his little brother to me, but our blue-eyed, blonde-haired three year old is the spitting image of his daddy, is ever-so-stubborn, laughs with all he has and he loves his mama fiercely.
My Detroit roots are solid. I was born in the D, have always lived in the surrounding suburbs and received a full academic scholarship to Wayne State University in Detroit, where I earned my finance degree.
I began my career as a Corporate Insurance Broker when I was 23 and all these years later I am still with the same company. I love the left-brain/right-brain balance that my career and photography bring and affectionately refer to KGP as my side hustle.
I also recognize that choosing the right photographer for you can be a daunting task; I know because I’ve gone through it first-hand. My own portraits were taken by different photographers at various milestones in my life and I certainly did not take this selection lightly.
There is no doubt that custom photography is an investment. You will be dedicating a lot of thought, time, and money into this moment. Above all else, I want to be sure we are the perfect fit and that I am able to give you exactly what it is you are looking for. If my words + images resonate with you, then I will be honored to be the one chosen to preserve your own memories and absolutely cannot wait to connect with you! xoOkay. Let's book.
