daphne's blog bio picture
  • Hello & welcome to daphne’s blog

    I found that I had too many beautiful images to share with people and my website didn't have enough space, so I've entered the world of blogging! I'm a photographer in the metro-Detroit area specializing in weddings, newborns, families, children, and event photography.

    I love what I do and being able to capture timeless moments of emotion and love that will bring joy to people for years and years. I'm so very lucky to have the job I do. I received my BFA in photography from the University of Michigan in 2000 and I've been shooting ever since. Simply put - I love love. I can't make up my mind as to which type of session I prefer so I like to do them all. Weddings are so amazing to shoot because of all the love and the powerful joyful emotions overflowing from the day - it's a dream to photograph. I'm also the mother of a 7 year old, Adler, who loves to ham it up in front of the camera and my little guy, Leopold, who is 1 and 1/2 and has way too many photos taken already, I can't keep up with all the ones I take. I understand how children operate and how patience and a kind attitude is essential during a shoot, ok and maybe a little bit of bribing.

    Enjoy my blog and find me on Facebook too.

Kacy & Matt

I had only met Kacy & Matt via Facetime prior to their wedding but at the end of the day, I felt like I knew both of them and their families so well.  I just adored all the love, enthusiasm and dancing that surrounded these two newlyweds.  This was the first Chaldean wedding I’ve photographed and it was so amazing.  Kacy and Matt encountered a slight hiccup early in the day when their party bus literally caught on fire and the engine was smoking so much you couldn’t see 1 foot in front of you but it didn’t phase them at all and I just truly love a couple that can brush off the unexpected and focus on the joy of the day.  Congratulations Matt & Kacy!



Here’s just a quick peak into a few photos from my incredible session with the Clark triplets.  I was overwhelmed with the cuteness of Henry, Amelia and Evelyn that I had to share this little quick preview on my blog too.  These 3 little ones were born 8 weeks prior to this shoot and were born just over 3 lbs each.  They are now each 5lbs and change, healthy and doing well but still felt so, so, so little to me that it was incredible.  Truly a wonderful shoot and I’m so glad to meet they’re incredibly sweet, mellow parents Colleen and Greg who made triplets seem easy.  So excited to watch these guys grow up and hopefully photograph them as they do!


Sydney at 6 Months

This was my first session with the Cox family and I was so happy that we rescheduled our rainy day shoot to an evening that was just beautiful, sunny and unseasonably warm for an October day.  It gave us some fantastic light and it was warm enough we could get some adorable shots of Sydney outside in just a diaper and her hat.  How can you not just fall in love with this cutie pie?!!



Nalina & Marty

Nalina and Marty had a beautiful wedding in Detroit at the Gem Theatre.  They had a scenic view of the city as the backdrop for their getting ready and first look photos and then we had the chance to visit the DIA before the amazing ceremony, officiated by Marty’s father.  The Gem Theatre was a wonderful historic spot and provided the guys a chance to sneak off to Ford Field for a few shots as well.  The jumping was the idea of one of the groomsmen as the standard wedding photo pose but I have to admit, it is pretty fun with Ford Field in the background.  Marty and Nalina – congratulations and I can’t wait to show you all of the images!


Baby Ribits on the way…

I had such a good time with the Ribits family during our maternity shoot.  Jake was just a little mini-me of his dad and is at just that right age where he makes a million different faces and it’s so hard for me to not keep all of them in their gallery because each one is adorable in a different way.  How amazing does Robin look too?!  She definitely is a gorgeous, laid-back pregnant momma-to-be and I can’t wait to meet the little one soon!
