3 Years of experience

Hi, I'm Libby, a 31 year old freelance photographer, local to the Detroit Metro area. I enjoy shooting candid photos of children because it's a fun experience and not stressful for the kids. Their little personalities change so much while growing up that normal posed portraits don't capture their authentic self.


I worked at Target Portrait studio for a bit, and while it was a great learning experience, I'm not a fan of posing people. Forced smiles are not genuine, so that's why I prefer to shoot candid photos. All kids have their own little personality and making them suppress that to sit for a picture isn't capturing their true self. Candid photos catch the genuine crooked smile and happy eyes, the unique things that make them, them.

A fun fact about me

I have a 5 year old daughter so connecting with kids is pretty easy. =]
