Jill, Andre and Autumn Rose

I love this couple and now their sweet bundle of joy, little Autumn Rose, completes them. They are awesome parents and little Autumn is certainly the center of their attention, and rightly so!
I was anxious for this session and happy to visit their home and photograph them all together. And of course, happy to get my baby fix. My 11 year old daughter who accompanied me on this session looks far too grown up now and amazing she was once as small as Autumn!
This little peanut was such a delight for me to photograph. At five months old she was so very patient and overall just so happy!
I am sure I will have more photo opportunities with her which I am very excited to do!
Thank you Andre and Jill for allowing me to create these images for you!

Meet Krysta and Ryan

After a few emails back and forth to set up their engagement session, I was finally able to meet these two love birds. And yes, they are so in love. Ryan just adores Krysta and you can clearly see it in these pictures. His adoring looks towards her were incredibly sweet! They were so cute together and I loved being their photographer for a short while that day to create images for them.
Their wedding is coming up soon! They have a wedding planned for the Bahamas. Oh how beautiful that will be. And I so wish they were taking me along to be their photographer!
I wish them the best as they will soon begin their life together as husband and wife.
Congratulations to you Ryan and Krysta!!

Meet Lisa ~ Class of 2012

Last Fall gifted me with some beautiful weather for photo sessions. I couldn't have been more lucky. On this October day with Lisa, we had not only warm air temperatures, but beautiful colors around us from leaves changing to golds and reds. So perfect. Add in some late afternoon light, and everything glows.
Lisa has this friendly, happy personality and we got along really well. She has this killer smile and with her bright, blue eyes, she shines in front of the camera.
Outdoor sessions like these are my favorites! I am reminded to appreciate my surroundings in Northern Michigan every day.

Meet Little Miss "M"

Oh what sweetness this little girl is! I had a wonderful time photographing her last month. She was adorable and just a blast to take pictures of.
Her mom had got in touch with me prior to our scheduled session to let me know of her cute little outfits planned for her picture date. I am always excited when a parent has ideas and outfits planned for their children prior to my session with them. That gives me a plan as to how I will photograph them as well as what props will work as well.
This session with little M took place in her home where she was completely at ease showing me all of her toys, books and interacting with her mom and dad. One year olds are busy, busy, busy so me and my camera really got a work out!

Such a delight to photograph her!!

Close to My Heart ~ The F.I.L.M. Project

The F.I.L.M. Project; meaning, Family Images for Lasting Memories. For families stricken with cancer. Oh how this program holds close to my heart and soul. I am really excited and anxious and scared all at the same time about participating in this program. What is it exactly? It is a program for professional photographers to photograph and document those facing cancer's journey, young and old, creating lasting images for them, their family and loved ones with absolutely no charge to them. Such heroes braving cancer right in it's face. They will have images they and their loved ones will always have and always remember. Because without pictures, we have memories yes, but with pictures we have those memories completely frozen in time. Remembering how it felt to have those pictures taken. The weather. What they wore. The location. The smiles, oh and so importantly, the laughter. Giggles. Fun times. Keepsakes. And no matter what lies ahead in their cancer journey, these images will remind them how very much they are loved. How much inspiration flows from them. The courage. The strength. So very brave.


Facing cancer head on.............
Facing cancer head on.
Cancer has been in my life for nearly three years now. My husband was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer in July 2009. And just like any cancer, took us by complete surprise. Shook up our world. He is beating the odds yes, but most importantly, reminding me daily to take each day for what it is, and make the most of it. To follow dreams. Be tough. And just live. Be thankful!!
The F.I.L.M. Project hits me right in the gut. I can't turn away from this opportunity. While I don't know what it is like to be the one stricken with cancer, however as a caregiver, the pain and fear extends out to me on a daily basis. Facing this disease. Unsure of the future. Living the "new normal". Trying to push away the fear. But living each day. Inspiring others. Because cancer just plain sucks and most often does not play fair. So we fight it and continue to do so.

Brothers forever. Gilly, so strong, so tough. An inspiration to everyone.

With The F.I.L.M. Project, for me, I will be able to share my gift of photography, " inspire healing, faith, and hope for these families during their most fragile times".
I believe memories should never be overlooked. They give us something back. We never forget. We can always remember. And with pictures, you have that memory frozen in time.

Yes, LIVESTRONG!

What I Love ~ Custom DVDs and Cases

6383blog-1

I really, really like these for my clients when they purchase a disk of their images following their photo session with me. I wanted something that is customized, presentable and pretty. Yes, pretty! But overall, a nicer way to present their disk in something other than a plastic case with a computer made stick on label. Something I was offering before, but no more!

Now my clients will receive a hard cover case that holds their disk of images and will keep them protected from being scratched or crushed.

And I can customize them with an image and name on the front cover. Love that!

And with their disk, I create an account with an online printing lab so that they can order their prints and print products from a lab that I know and and am comfortable with. And once they purchase their disk from with their images from their photo session, they have access to printing at will. Burn disks for friends and family members. Create images for scrapbooking or to make cards or calendars. Order various sizes of prints needed. Endless possibilities. Not to mention, have beautiful images! And that makes me smile.
