  • Well, hello! Welcome to fresh.simple.true. I create unusual portraits for unusual beings.

    I've just moved from Southern California to Kalamazoo, but I've brought my style with me. I live for The Quirk. Funny faces, silly expressions, and personal interactions that are like wonderful inside jokes to your family. Babies and dogs are my specialty; I love them individually, but when you put them together...bam! Awesomeness happens.

    My clients like portraits that show who they are, not just what they look like. They want the important stages of their lives documented, but in a genuine way. No soft focus for them; no awkward family poses and definitely no matching turtlenecks.

    This site is a combination of my portfolio and blog. Blog posts are right below this introduction, and links to my portfolio work are directly above. I love to blog, but honestly, I'm on Facebook probably more than I should be, so find me there and say hello.

    I donate my time & art to many nonprofits. Rescue work is close to my heart and I offer session discounts for those with rescued/shelter animals and also senior or terminally ill animals.

    I'm a big fan of community. I make my artwork available to nonprofit fundraisers at no cost; if you have an event coming up and would like to auction some of my work, don't hesitate to drop me a line and let me know what you've got going on.

So. You know how you always wanted really nice photos of you and your family? Not really posed, more like just…hanging out together. Just being you. Even way before I became a photographer, and especially when my daughter was really little, I always wanted to hire a photographer for a day to follow us around […]

    susan sabo - Erica, when you’re here next week we’re not going to be able to Spy you, because I’m going to put you and Mr. Man in the studio and I’m going to keep you there as long as I can! 🙂

    Hey Jeanie, Hi Tom. I’m really glad that Nicole arranged that day for you; working is always fun, but making friends during the process is better than cake. xoReplyCancel
