FAMILY PORTRAITS /// NORTHERN MICHIGAN

I had a ridiculous amount of fun working on this "vintage", or I guess "pseudo-western", family photo shoot in Grayling, Michigan.  I have known these crazy kids since they were born... they are the niece and nephew of two of my very best friends ever.  A lot of these photos remind me of what it was like to spend every summer of my childhood on Lake Margrethe with my family and best friends.  Kind of makes me nostalgic for that time when we used to run around pretending to be from a different time or place... or fighting "bad guys" and being heros.

I am also sending a lot of love to American Samoa where Jessie will be teaching for the next year.  Enjoy. xoxo.
