The Heatons – Fall in Michigan

Willow Metropark and Sterling State Park Fall for Michigan is here in the form of WIND and COLD and RAIN. What made this session so special to me was despite the three crumby conditions above (and I mean INTENSE wind, and pouring rain!) they never complained to me,...

The Womacks in Fall

Heritage Park in Taylor, Michigan Can you say BRR?! 39 degrees Fahrenheit and this family was a trooper, no complaining, all smiles. We met at Heritage Park in Taylor, Michigan, and found some amazing trees in the back that still had some yummy fall colors in them....

Templetons 2017

Lower River Rouge Recreation Trail I love the Templetons! The kids are getting more and more comfortable with me, and for this adventure we went to the Lower River Rouge Recreation Trail in Canton, Michigan. The fall leaves were still pretty good here, and we had a...

The Wasdens – A New Country Home

I have grown up with the wardens, watching them add member after member, and this time the big change is a new beautiful country home! Though I will miss having them next door to my parent’s home, this home is perfect for this family and all their fun loving needs. Including family pictures! There is beautiful land, fall colors, and even beautiful mountain ranges in the distance that we definitely took advantage of. I will always hold the Wasdens so high in my heart, if you’re looking for a great example of a family, you’ve found them.¬†

Holdaway Family

Sterling State Park on Lake Erie I love the Holdaways! They are practically second owners to our sweet dog, and they are always making me laugh when I am with them. For their family pictures they wanted that classic Michigan look while still staying close to home, and...

Baby Aaron + Family

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...

Talbert Family – Elizabeth Park

The Talberts are back, and this time they've added the adorable bag of sunshine that is Baby R! For their family pictures we went to Elizabeth Park, in Downriver Michigan south of Detroit. Despite it being a beautiful fall day and all the fall colors are starting to...

Dyal Family

Detroit Family The Dyal family is at a very exciting time in their life. One child is engaged, one is headed to college, and they are transitioning their family life for the better and adding new people and experiences. This may well be the very last time it will be...

The Bannos

4 Year Anniversary - Palmer Park, Michigan Weddings are great and should be celebrated, but what is really worth celebrating are anniversaries. Another year of ups and downs, another year closer, and another year together. I loved seeing the happiness and connection...

Lichtenberg Family

At Ford Lake in Ypsilanti, Michigan I love the drumroll of a waiting family expecting another member. Their son is such an adventurous cutie, and mommy looks amazing with that little baby bump. And it's going to be a girl! They were a very sweet and contagiously happy...

Samir Baptism

I love seeing friends and family all gather together to celebrate something, and this little guy was definitely worth celebrating! Little baby Samir was adorable, and seriously loved having his picture taken. Samir was baptized on August 12th, 2017 surrounded by his...

The Longs Take Ann Arbor (Wildflowers)

Okay, don’t these two look exactly like Ken and Barbie? And I’m not just saying that because she is my best friend. The Longs and I went to Ann Arbor for their family pictures, and found some amazing places! This section of wildflower field was open to the public, beautiful, huge, and so close to town. That’s one thing I love about Michigan, the city life and country life are never far apart.
