Oh my heart. These two kill me. I just adore them. And the next time I see them, there will be 3! Katie and Matt are expecting a sweet baby boy very soon and I am over-the-moon-happy for them. It was so great to connect with them last week for this session and it means so much to me that I was able to take some photos for them while they wait for the little one to arrive.
I’m loving the number of family sessions that I’ve been doing this Summer! I’m here for it. It doesn’t have to take up a ton of time - it can be a quick, uncomplicated shoot at a vacation rental. Memories I made with my own family as a kid during our time “up north” are full of nostalgia and have honestly influenced my life enormously (including moving up here full time). So I’m beyond happy that I can capture and preserve these memories for other families. Like the seasons, time is fleeting - it’s so cliche but true. Document these times together because they go by so fast. Thanks for inviting me you guys!
I seriously look forward to seeing these guys every year and watching Margot grow! I had the pleasure of documenting Leslie & Bob’s wedding and we did a family session together last Summer when Margot was teeny tiny! Now she’s exploring, standing, rock collecting, and then of course trying to eat the sand - which is a VERY common occurrence during family portrait sessions with little ones ;) I’m so happy that I get the opportunity to stay connected with my clients. I’ve written this before, but it’s one of my very favorite parts of this work. Cheers to the Love family!
Talk about a beautiful family! These four are super fun to photograph and just as fun to be around. I had such a great time up in Northport last week capturing a little slice of their vacation. Check out the images below for major #hairgoals. Thanks for inviting me you guys!!
It can be hard to get grown up siblings together often. I know that from personal experience with our own family. So when you do have that rare family vacation where everyone is together: the grandparents, parents + kids, it’s a prime time to get some photos taken. I love doing this for families and this group was absolutely wonderful. It was a super playful session with superhero poses, marshmallow mouths, and silly faces and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thanks for having me you guys!
It’s Summer folks! Find some time to have breakfast & coffee on the deck or the lawn. Clink those coffee mugs. Grab a pool noodle. Throw down a blanket. Watch your kids dance to their favorite songs. Make silly faces. Cool off in the water. Enjoy the sun. Be together. I’m so happy that I had the opportunity to meet this awesome family and capture them doing just that! Thanks guys, I had so much fun!!
I have way too much fun photographing this family. You may have seen them before… and they are all awesome. This year was no exception. You can’t go wrong on the grounds of Camp Michigania. The goofing, laughing, and playing was top notch and the soft serve game was strong. I feel lucky to have such amazing friend-clients. Cheers to another Summer session focused on what’s important: family. I love you guys!
A small wedding with a beautiful, happy, family on a Tuesday at Rocky Top Farms? With orchard and lake views and amazing farm-to-table food from Epicure? Yes please, sign me up! Sue & Juris were absolutely wonderful to work with, as were their children and grand children. This group was all smiles and hugs and cheers and I feel very privileged to have been invited to document it. Congratulations Sue & Juris!
Yes - I have not one, but TWO adorable newborn sessions to share with you today! Maddy and Michael are also former wedding photography clients. They are friends with Kirsten & Dan, their baby girls were born just weeks apart, and they live a half a mile from each other. I am beyond lucky to have client/friends like these and it is now my pleasure to introduce you to Clare. Welcome to the world little one, it was so great to meet you!
Kirsten & Dan’s wedding was one of the first weddings we documented when we moved back to Michigan. And it’s not an understatement to say that their wedding seriously helped jump start our business. Their group of friends are all AMAZING people and we have been lucky enough to work with many of them. It has been so great to stay in touch with Kirsten and Dan over the years, but nothing made me happier than being able to photograph them again. This time, as a family of three! They recently welcomed Zoey, and my oh my, what a sweetheart she is.
Zemaitis Fam, Thank you, thank you, thank you, for welcoming me into your home and being amazing clients and friends. We are so grateful for you!!!
