I'm Dre

If I’m not serving up a fancy, homemade cheeseburger or watching Wheel of Fortune and clutching my heart when the contestant goes bankrupt, I’m in photographer mode. My studio in Elk Rapids is my second home, and I’d love for you to come have that personalized photography experience for yourself!

I love photographing High School Seniors, mostly because I wish I could go back and be a Senior again! They’re in that precious age when they’re at the brink of something amazing, and they don’t even know how magical that is or how full of possibility they are!

I am a wife and a mother, and feel so passionately that family moments need to be frozen in time. I love photographing families and hearing all about their stories - what is happening right in this moment in life to make it so special and worth savoring? 
When you experience Dre Photography, you’re seen for your whole story. I want to know who you are so that I see the real you! 



A Family & Senior Portrait Photographer located in Elk Rapids, Michigan.

I am a foodie born and raised by foodies. From ethnic, exotic, fresh, farmed, bagged, off a truck, hot, cold, fatty, lean, you name it - I eat it!

No sports, all games. From Wheel of Fortune, The Wall, euchre, dominoes, spoons - if you're playing, deal me in!

fun and games

I love spending as much time as I can by the water! You can find me floating on an inflatable unicorn, boating with family, and generally beaching the day away.

When I went to Italy, I left a piece of my heart there. It's my home away from home.

St. Maarten was my first baby. He has four legs and trained my husband and I to break all of the rules we make.


Two girls, one boy, and the man I call my hunk! They are my whole world.
