Hello!  You found me.  I am Dena Robles and I have been photographing people as a profession for the better part of 18 years.  My life so far has led me from Portland, OR to Boston, MA, to London England, then Chapel Hill, NC, and has now brought me and my family to settle in Western Michigan.  I feel very blessed to have experienced these lovely cities and to be able to offer my photography services everywhere I go.  I create artistic lifestyle portraits of newborns, babies and children in the US and UK.  My preferred method to photograph is on-location using primarily available light.

As an artist, I am inspired by natural beauty, texture, mood, light, shadow, tiny details, emotion, expression, and the magic of individuality.

In my free time I listen to music much too loudly, am a fine chocolate connoisseur, read big heavy books (on paper!), romp with my puppy, try to help my children navigate their worlds, knit too many unfinished projects, and every other day I cook enough soup to feed the entire neighborhood.  And I photograph.  Daily.   To learn more about me and see a glimpse behind the scenes please visit my blog More Than Words.

I accept portrait commissions on limited days each week.  To inquire about a portrait session, please drop me a line at
