Hello! My name is Lydia and this is a very short glimpse of who I am and how I became a photographer:
I’m a wife, mother, photographer, and bohemian at heart; living in Saint Joseph, Michigan. I love working with natural light and strive to capture the true essence of each person I photograph.
As a young girl, I loved carrying around my cheap, 110 film camera and capturing all the fun moments. When I had the film developed, opening that envelope to look at all the 4×6 prints was more exciting than Christmas! Though I have enjoyed snapping pictures for as long as I can remember, I didn’t start taking photography seriously until after my first child was born in 2008. Since then: I interned for and worked with two very talented photographers (and learned more than I can ever thank them for), had my second kid, started my own photography business, closed my business to move from Florida to Michigan, had my third kid, and started my photography business over from scratch. I can’t say anything about this journey has been smooth or easy, but I love what I do.
