SPOTLIGHT: Cynthia

Image
I get so happy when Cynthia decides to update her headshots.  She is absolutely beautiful, inside and out, and always amazing to work with. She also happens to be a very talented and accomplished writer. I just love her! You can check out her website here: CYNTHIA DRAKE Here are a few faves from our session: Big thanks to Anna Grove who did Cynthia's hair & makeup.

SPOTLIGHT: The P Family

Image
I LOVE photographing entire families.   We had set up the date a month ahead of time...and in Michigan, you never can be sure if the weather is going to behave. Thankfully, though the wind picked up (gusts forecasted up to 40mph), there were brief pauses when Mother Nature would take a breath.  That's when we'd pose and take a shot. And it was beautiful. Recreated an old photo of brother and sister Recreated the recreated photo...with the younger set brother/sister set. Gorgeous couple. Amazing family. What we're doing is capturing memories.  That's important stuff right there. Interested in booking a session for YOUR family? Check out my website, and send me a messsage!

What's Up?

The weather is getting warmer, and portrait season is upon us!  I was just looking over some of the images from last year... loved the seniors and the families that were so amazing to work with.  I mean---look at these... I love when people get the option that includes printed proofs. It makes the photos a little more....forever. Also did my annual school pictures for several area homeschoolers this past fall.. a few co-ops, and then several individual homeschoolers.  To say that I enjoy it is an understatement!! I LOVE seeing these faces....and the little ones get so excited about picture day. This guy wore the hat his grandpa had gotten for him: And she wanted to be sure her bracelet was in the picture: So much fun---kids are the best! Got a photo on a book cover: Prime shooting season is spring/summer/fall, but there were a few who will brave the cold for some cool Michigan winter pictures. Were we a little chilly? Kinda.  Was it 100% worth it? ABSOLUTELY! Got another photo on anoth

FAMILY SESSION - Snow, boys, and a dog who absolutely loves the camera

Image
I know I've mentioned it before, but I seriously love watching these kids grow up in front of my lens. I had the honor of photographing this awesome guy since he was brand new. Now he's five and a half!  Big brother has also grown quite a bit since then... I think we need a little throwback to really appreciate this... Then: Now: And here's Ryder...probably the happiest-to-be-in-front-of-the-camera dog I've ever met! The boys would pose, then Ryder would decide to run up and pose with them. Good boy!!!! These guys are going to be close forever. #brotherlylove

Senior Session -- Olivia

Image
I'm discovering that I love my own backyard more and more. What's even better is having beautiful people to photograph. Olivia came for a quick session, and she was lovely, the weather was warm, and the shoot was so amazing. And with the whole COVID-19 situation, I ended up rigging a temporary natural light "studio" in our pole barn because I wanted to try a few indoor poses without being too indoors.
