Who I Am
Hi there! If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m Veronica. I’m a big fan of coffee, podcasts, really bad “dad jokes”, perfecting the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe, and all things photography.
While I mainly photograph humans, I’m always checking the forecast for a chance of the northern lights – because what else do you do when you live in the Upper Peninsula?
My husband Rob runs Copperdale Window Cleaning, but he often comes out with me in shoots, too! I’m a little silly, he’s a little more sane. It’s a good match 😉
In our free time you can find us hiking the Keweenaw, camping, fishing, and kayaking on the canal. We love being outdoors because there’s always somewhere new to explore. Do you have a place you think we would love? Let us know – we love recommendations!
Where I Work
I live in Hancock, Michigan and serve the surrounding area – that includes Houghton County, Keweenaw County, Ontonagon County, and Baraga County. There’s too much beauty in the Upper Peninsula to limit to just one area, and we’re always spying new session locations when we’re out hiking, too!
Everyone has a why, right? Here goes. *Deep breath.*
When I was in school, insecurities overwhelmed me. Despite a supportive, loving family I struggled with a borderline eating disorder throughout my teenage years that sucked a lot of joy out of what should have been the most memorable years of school. I constantly compared myself to others, always found something new wrong with myself, and never cheered for the other girls, too worried about what they might be thinking about me.
It took a long time to get over but I’m so thankful to be past that time in my life.
Why am I telling you this?? It’s because I don’t want you to have to feel that way. I’ve been there, done that. I don’t want you to be so concerned with yourself that you end up paralyzed, never capturing those memories, never putting them on your wall. I work with you every step of the way, helping you select the best clothing for your shoot, preparing you with e-mails ahead of time so you never feel lost or confused.
Now I love being the personal cheerleader for others – to celebrate their accomplishments, to give them the support they need to accept themselves with grace, to tell them they are going to crush that next step in life. I can’t wait to photograph and cheer for you, too!
