A little about me
Heyyy, I'm Camille! I was born and raised along the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan. I now live in Kalamazoo, but am always willing to make a trip back to the lake for photoshoots! I will travel all over West Michigan for photoshoots! I am officially a full time photographer - something I have always dreamed of! I love being able to travel and adventure to new locations. Chances are I will always either have my camera, my GoPro, or my drone with me!
I love getting to know people and forming relationships. Part of that is opening myself up so you can feel comfortable talking to me and being around me and in front of my camera! I am also willing to do whatever it takes to ensure you have a positive experience with me and love your photos!
Colin is my extremely supportive fiance - and he even serves as my assistant sometimes!
Who I am
I'm a creative person at heart, and photography has been my creative outlet ever since I can remember. I always brought my little point and shoot camera everywhere, taking photos of everything. Literally everything, just ask my friends. I cared more about my camera than I did my cell phone. In high school, I took a digital photography class and got my first DSLR, and well, the rest is history.
My business really took off once I graduated college in 2017 and was able to invest more time, energy, and money. I am constantly looking for new ways to improve my client experience and how I shoot.
My favorite thing about photography is capturing real, raw, candid moments and emotions. I enjoy capturing you as you are. I will try to get genuine smiles and laughs out of you. I do not like to change how you look - I believe you are beautiful, unique, and amazing just the way you are!
By nature, I'm a perfectionist, I love order and structure, and am a very routine, scheduled, detail-oriented person. On the flip side, I love change, spontaneity, and flexibility (at times - ha). I'm an enneagram type 1, which I feel explains so much!
HOW I SHOOT
Natural light is the absolute best form of light. Nature provides some of the best backdrops. However, I also love shooting in a studio - they can be so fun! My editing style is very natural looking and a little moody sometimes. I do very minimal photoshopping - meaning I will not make you look slimmer, remove wrinkles, etc. because I believe everyone is beautiful in their own skin.
