states I've visited

Anywho, if you haven't already guessed it "Ybbil" of Ybbil Photography is Libby backwards. A few of my friends back in school started calling me by my nickname, but backwards, and well it stuck. I'm totally okay with it too. I feel it gives off the vibe I like to do things differently.

I'm a small town Michigan photographer who thrives on that #stayathomemom life (most of the time). I enjoy having random dance parties in my kitchen, eating Oreo's, and watching lots and lots of movies.

I'm Libby


I have two precious munchkins, a boxer dog, and a plethora of farm animals that make everyday life a roller coaster ride; fun and exhilarating, but a little scary too. 

Can I Get an Amen!?!

I'm married to the man of my dreams. No, seriously! I prayed to God about what I wanted in a man and met him a couple months later. Good things come to those who pray.

While in college I made the decision to try something new. And by new, I mean something completely different from my current major (pre-veterinary medicine). I took my first photography class as an elective and fell in love. In 2011, after changing my major to small business management, I chose to open my own photography business. 

For several years following the inception of my business I rocked the side hustle hard core. Though now, capturing your special moments is a full time thing for me.    

How my photography journey started...


I showed horses for 13 years (on-and-off) 

My husband and I now run a small quarter horse breeding program with our two stallions (Dun Blue it Up & Stpn Kros Blue Leo). If you own your own four legged friends, I'd absolutely love to photograph you and your babies. Bring on all the animal family members!
