River Session

I love traveling down to see this family (my family) for photos every year. We actually shot this session at noon, not exactly a favorite time for most of us photographers – unless you’re Jean Smith (and sadly I am not), but we made it work.

Baby Nora

What a sweet, little family.  We did a little outdoors and a little studio too.  I’m always game for just about anything, especially when babies and cute dogs are involved.

Rustic Family Session

I used to work with this sweet, fun mama back in the day.  She drove all the way up from the Detroit area for her session, so the pressure was definitely on to capture some great images of her and her kiddos.  We had lot of laughs, that’s for sure!

Orchard Maternity Session

I had the sweetest maternity session at Eastman’s Antique Apple Orchard.  It was such a great setting for this sweet family’s session.  I really enjoyed spending time with them and can’t wait to meet their new little one in December!

Fall Orchard Session

So, confession – I haven’t always loved family sessions.  When I first started out in this field I tried to be everything to everybody and I realized pretty quickly I wasn’t happy doing business that way.  Once I started changing the way I looked at things – at  capturing the family relationships and connections- letting go and having fun – that’s when I started to enjoy the process again.  Hopefully I attract clients that want the type of photography that I offer – something a little different I hope.

I appreciated this family so much – they were so laid back, which is the way to be at a photo session.  Young boys are high energy, but they went with the flow and we had a great time and captured lots of great memories.  And they were seriously so adorable and dressed to perfection <3

Summer Maternity Session

I don’t get to shoot nearly as many maternity sessions as I’d like.  I hope that changes because I just LOVE them.  This session was so much fun.  Such a sweet family!

Extended Family Beach Session

I always love spending time with this family. They are so kind and fun loving. We always have lots of laughs during our sessions together. We had one day to get these photos with all of the grandkids together. It was just a little windy…

Sweet Snuggles and Curls

I might be partial to curly-haired girls, but this little one is so adorable.  So full of smiles and endless amounts of energy. And I am so glad her mom and I have become friends over the past year – she is pretty special too. The best kind of photo session is when families are comfortable with me and with themselves, and it translates into beautiful, timeless photos.  I think you can feel the love in these.

Adorable Family

I am always excited to photograph this family.  Not only are they sweet as can be and so laid back, but they show up dressed perfectly every time. It really makes a huge difference in the photos.

Leaman’s Green Apple Barn Family Session

I love having families come back for photos year after year.  Michelle was one of my very first clients and it’s been awesome to get to know her and watch her family grow.  So glad we dodged  the raindrops and got some great photos <3
