Tis the season of miracles, joy and hope! Little Miss Erin is all of those and more! I can not even begin to express how amazing, strong, beautiful, brave and joyful Erin is!  I have known Erin’s mom Shannon for years and I have had the pleasure of watching little Erin grow, she is such a little fighter and has been through so much in her two years of life.  Erin’s mom Shannon has such strength and grace and she is an inspiration to me and I am sure many others.  To tell you a little bit more about Erin, she was diagnosed with Hay-Wells Syndrome, which is a rare inherited disorder that belongs to a group of disorders known as the Ectodermal Dysplasias.  It is so rare doctors are still learning about this disorder. Erin’s mom started up a facebook page for Erin called Strength and Love for Erin. It is a wonderful page to just show love and support. You can check it out here.   I love this family so much! May God continue to bless Erin and her family!  I now present Erin…….

 

 

 

My favorite!

 

 

 

 

I just adore this one so much!

Elise and Ty Engaged

Just to warn you from the beginning this is going to be a longer post.  :)  I said on my facebook post of this couple that they are so very dear to my heart.  A long time ago… well about 23 years to be exact,  my friend Beth and I grew up right down the road from each other, sort of anyway, in the country down the road is about a mile or longer. We rode horses any chance we had. Her sisters were quite a bit older then us and some of them had kids already. Which we thought was great as teenagers, we loved it! I am sure you are wondering what any of this has to do with this shoot. Well one of those kids was Elise. I remember one time, I was going to take her for a ride on a horse, when she got on with me the horse took off running.  I was so concerned with holding onto her, I could not even stop the horse. That was so scary to me as a teenager, and I think that is why that memory always sticks in my head with her. She on the other hand did not even notice that the horse was acting up and had fun. That is my memory anyway, hers might be different. :)  I was just saying to her that it is so funny where life takes you. I never would have guessed that I would be taking her engagement photos 20 years later and I would have never imagined that we both would share the same love for photography, which you can see her beautiful work here.  Elise is one of the sweetest people I know and Ty is so caring, so kind, so perfect for each other.   They have been friends since they were teenagers in school and they are now going to spend the rest of their lives together. I am so happy for them and I was completely honored to photograph them as a newly engaged couple.  I now present Elise and Ty…

After high school I took a job on Mackinaw Island.  If you are not familiar with Mackinaw Island, it is one of the most amazing places in Michigan it takes you back in time where there are no cars, a slower pace of life and horse drawn carriages. My mom dropped me off and I was pretty nervous not knowing anyone. I am a nervous person as it is and not knowing anyone it really was a challenge for me. I was shown to my room where I would be living for the next 6 months or so and introduced to my roommate Veronica. Two girls coming from two different places in life. We hit it off right away and became great friends, many years have passed and I can say that we are not just friends, we consider each other family.  We never lost touch and we have seen each other through so much and will continue to do so. You are probably wondering what in the world this story has to do with my photo session. Well enter Serene, Veronica’s beautiful amazing daughter! Serene came to visit me a few weeks back and we decided to do a photo shoot,  well I did and she obliged. Serene lives up to her name and she is so dear and special to me and I LOVE how our session turned out.  Hope you enjoy it!
