New Buffalo, Lake Michigan

When you do your own family photos, you make sure that they’re epic and special to you. I love the Great Lakes, and I mean LOVE, so we drove 3 hours to a beautiful beach on Lake Michigan in New Buffalo. Along Lake Michigan there are usually sand dunes, beach grass, and the lake that looks like the ocean (but let’s face it, the Great Lakes are better than an ocean, no sharks, no salt, crystal clear.)

My husband is amazing, and has become quite the little photographer and model himself, always pitching in ideas and being such a natural at posing. Brielle was skeptical about the sand and loved the water and the rocks. I love my family like crazy, and I love my Michigan.
