Children and Babies
I got to play with this sweet baby boy just after Thanksgiving, and what a perfect time to come into the world. His trooper mother is an OBGYN herself, and got to experience a birth from the point of view of the mother, so it was so interesting hearing her thoughts and how different it is and how much it has opened her eyes. He is a loved little boy and was so patient with me moving him around all the time. It will be so fun (and sad) to watch him grow and grow and grow.read more
This little guy did not help my baby-hungriness, man oh man he is a cutie, and every time I do a newborn session I am amazed at how small these precious little babies are. Baby Aaron had his big sister and his mommy and daddy with him for this shoot, and grandma to...read more
Baby Tanner Newborn Photography Baby Tanner (Tanner Rex, how cute is T-Rex?!) was born this last month and is such a doll. He definitely did not like me moving him constantly and not being cuddled by his parents, but with lots of milk and convincing he even opened his...read more
I absolutely love when clients want to have some fun and really get creative with their photos. Sweet little Mia here wanted to be a Fairy, and so we did just that! It’s so fun to see fairy tales come true! We went into the woods and into the flowers for her shoot, here in Woodhaven and Southgate, Michigan.
The beautiful little flower wreath on her head was actually her mother’s when she was a little girl, how sweet is that?! Little fairy Mia is to die for, and look at those eyes!!read more
A new little baby girl has entered this beautiful Michigan world, and she is baby #5 in this family! I loved working twice with this family this month, and with 5 young kids these shoots were as crazy and as fun as you can imagine.read more
I love this family. I had the chance to do some family photos a few months ago, before their sweet baby Elliott came and joined! His older brother is so so sweet to him, and couldn’t smile long enough for the camera before he’d be trying to look at his brother again. The entire family looks so young and great, and I always love the kindness and happiness they bring each time I see them. Welcome to the world baby E!read more
When you’re this good at making little boys, you get three in a row. The Burton’s welcomed their third little man into the family last week and he definitely pushed my baby-hungriness over the edge. The Burtons are amazing because they are very real. If the house is messy or clean, they are in their pjs or dressed for church, they are focused on each other and are contagiously happy.
I loved this shoot (not just because it was a workout enough to skip the gym that day) because the boys are silly and wild, and the parents have a job to do to get everyone to settle down and cooperate. There were many giggles, and those are the memories we want to hold on to, not just the perfect posed smiles. And shout out to grandma for helping round up the monkeys, what would we do without you.read more
Newborn Baby Gardner A new baby came home to Southgate, Michigan this week and mommies hold on to your little girls, he's a stud! Sweet baby E was over 10lbs, and 22 inches long! He has tons of handsome wrinkles, and is as perfect looking as can be. Welcome to the...read more
This girl is just too cute not to take pictures of, and Christmas called for a fun theme so we simply wish you a Merry Christmas from little Brielle! She loved all of the lights and I love how the light played back with her.read more
It’s a cold day here in Michigan but don’t worry, I got to snuggle with my friend’s new baby girl, and it was wonderful! We took her newborn pictures from the warmth of my home and us now 6 girls (Me and my daughter, my friend and her three daughters) had a party. No boys allowed! =)read more
Congrats to the Portela family and their new little addition!! They were all so cute, and the older brother and sister were both so cute with him and knew just what to do. It was the first snow of the year but we were cozy inside with this sweet family! I just love the one with his little hands and his little feet, man this is gonna make me baby hungry again.read more
