Newborn Jameson

Newborn Jameson was a fantastic little client! He even let me try out a few of my new props I picked up at IKEA last week. He also has amazing skin for a newborn. Many times when little ones come to visit us in the studio they can be very pink, blotchy, sometimes a bit yellow, dry, (That is why most of the time the best look for newborns is black and white...) but for Jameson, he was perfect! Of course with amazingly beautiful parents, how could he be anything but. Congratulations Rachelle and Paul!

One of the things I love about being a photographer is that I have the chance to creat long term relationships with our clients. Kelly was a model for Brent in 2007 and booked her wedding with us in 2009. In 2010, we have the opportunity to see her expecting and in a few months we will get to meet their baby boy! This couple is so special to us, and we love spending time with them. Best of luck on the rest of your pregnancy, and we hope to see you soon with your little guy in tow!

The Knot Best of Weddings 2010

About a month ago I recieved a call from the Knot letting me know that I had been voted one of the best of 2010 for Michigan photographers. It didn't really sink in, but this month a bride called to let me know she had seen our name in the Knot magazine. So yesterday I hit the newsstands to see our name listed as one of the Best of Weddings, 2010! Thank you so much to the brides and clients who voted for me, I really am so honored!

Emmalyn L.

Seven day old Emmalyn is basically every parent's dream. She is absolutely beautiful and was a dream during the entire session. She even gave me a couple of smiles, focused her bright, wide eyes directly at the camera, and fell sound asleep for all of the prop portraits. I could've taken about a hunderd more shots of this little cutie. Congratulations Mark and Stephanie!!

Gabe M.

I met Gabe's family just before Christmas, when he was still tucked snugly away in moms belly. His big brother Logan was a bit less excited about this session than he was his last one, but had a great time playing upstairs with my son Austin. Gabe was great although he did shower his poor daddy a couple of times... one of the many blessings of taking portraits of naked babies :) Congratulations on your new addition!

Lane S.

Lane is just over six months old, and had a lot of fun playing with all of our little props. I love the shot where he is playing in the towels. The look on his face is priceless. I am not sure if it is a laugh or mischief, but either way, I love it!

Jason & Lisa

As you can tell, my engagement session with Jason and Lisa was not the warmest day ever, but it was well worth it! One thing I love about this couple is that they are being very true to themselves planning a February wedding, and engagement portraits in the snow. Lisa said that this is just who they are, not the frills and fuss surrounding most weddings. I am excited to try a few things at the wedding that we were just way to cold for at the end of the session! Congratulations Jason and Lisa!
