I'm Makenzie. I'm a wife, mother & a photographer.

Like many, photography has helped heal my heart, as well as, bring so much joy into my life in such a short time. As a young girl growing up in South Bend, Indiana, I have always had a passion for photography. However, it wasn't until later in life that I truly embraced my love for the art! Photography has spoken to my soul in ways nothing else ever has.

After earning my degree in social work in 2015, I worked in child welfare for two years, however, after losing my father to Pancreatic Cancer, my world was immediately turned upside down. My life, my dreams and my goals changed drastically. When my daughter was born the following year, I began taking photos of her for fun. This fun and creative venture, turned into a passion for capturing others! I then decided to live in the moment and embrace my true calling. I wanted to be present for my family and share my passion for photography with others.

Since 2017, I have been photographing families, couples, seniors & maternity sessions. In 2018, I began photographing weddings in the United States & in 2019, I photographed by first wedding abroad. To this day, I wake up everyday to a job that I love. I capture priceless memories that will last lifetimes. Photography has connected me with so many people over the years and turned clients into lifelong friends. This hobby turned into a career has allowed me to share and create special moments in time with each and every one of my amazing clients. I get to celebrate and share in all different milestones in life and for that, I'm truly grateful.
