Natalie

Meet Natalie! I love that she wanted her senior shoot done in the winter time. We had a few falls and we were a little cold, but the snow is so beautiful and it was so peaceful and quiet outside.  I need to do more shoots in the winter. :)

Turk family

February 8th, 2018

Winter hits here in Michigan and you never know what you are going to get. Could be -20 or it could be 45. It is just a weekly game. It has been an interesting winter so far. Some of my sessions, that are outdoor sessions, have been rescheduled a few times and other times it has been a nice winter day. I love to shoot both inside and outside so this was a great family shoot, with a little bit of both.   I usually apologize for doing longer blog post, but I am going to stop doing that, I am just going to post the photos I love from each shoot, no matter how long it makes my post. :)

Serene

December 8th, 2017

Two young girls meet on Mackinaw Island 20 years ago. One was from the country, one was from the city, they had two different backgrounds and two different reasons they were on the island. The one girl was me and I was there to work with horses for the summer and give tours of one of my most favorite places on earth. I love Mackinaw Island so much! The other girl was Veronica, she was there to get away for the summer through a school program.  We were introduced to each other and were informed we were roommates. Well what started out as just roommates ended up being a life long friendship! We were placed together because I was a little older, she was younger and I guess they thought I might look out for her, which we looked out for each other.  We had such a blast on the island all summer and did so much together, we became not just friends but sisters. Summer ended, I stayed on the island and she went back to school, I was already graduated from school.  We always kept in touch. Lives got busy, our families grew but we always remained close and her kids know me as aunt and my kids know her as aunt. We are all family and I love them so much! Well here we are 20 years later and I am photographing her beautiful daughter, my niece, I love this girl so much and she is seriously gorgeous.  I am so blessed they are in our lives and so blessed to be able to photograph the beautiful Serene.

Sarah and Marcus

November 2nd, 2017

Amazing…that is what these two loves are!  Together for 19 years, married for 16 years and 6 gorgeous children. What is so awesome about this shoot, is it is all about them, celebrating their love and life together. Their love is so beautiful to see and I wish that every couple would do a photo shoot like this for themselves. I am not kidding I could post this whole session,  I had the hardest time picking my favorites. Just want to warn you, it is a longer post but so amazing! :)   Thank you Sarah and Marcus for having me be apart of your beautiful life, you inspire me.

Such a beautiful fall day!  There is just something about being a photographer, that I just feel like my clients are not just my clients, they become family to me and I feel that way so much about this awesome girl and her family. Avery rocked her shoot, so sweet and so fun.

Billy

October 5th, 2017

Oh my goodness, I know I have been kind of not posting as much lately, but I just looked and it has been a month, WOW, that is not me. That has to change, so lets start with Billy. Michigan gave us an wonderful 90 degree day for his shoot, and he was such a trooper. He is such an awesome, down to earth young man, love that he requested a farm location, it speaks right to my heart.
