Hi! My name is Tate. I am flattered and honored that you are interested in my work. (and even more flattered that you're taking time to read about me!) I live in Southwest Michigan with my husband Trevor and our two boys. Trevor is a fruit farmer and the best husband I could have ever asked for. He survives my chaos even when I am six loads behind on laundry and a week overdue on grocery shopping. God Bless him. His family owns an orchard in Fennville and his extended family owns a Pie Pantry restaurant just next door! To see all things fruit, pie and wine please visit
My photography style is not perfect. I am a roll with the punches type of person and a lot of that flows into my work. My favorite images are the in between moments and details. I love chunky baby thighs and how kids just melt into their parents arms. I am not afraid of looking like a fool to get kids to smile. At the end of most sessions I am a bit winded and sweaty (sorry friends, it's true) I am a firm believer in always staying a student and trying new things. It is my hope that I am able to give my clients images that tell their story.
My favorite location my backyard! It's easy when it's an orchard ;)
My dream location is Joshua Tree National Park
Thanks so much for reading. I am truly glad you are here! You are the reason I am able to continue doing this thing that I love so much.
