You’ll think me crazy but before two years ago, I had not been to Belle Isle in Detroit for probably two decades. It’s crazy.... trust me I know. My boyfriend and I have birthdays two days apart, but I am a year wiser! Two years ago, we celebrated our birthdays in Detroit, which was to start our tradition. We decided to drive around Belle Isle and I instantly became obsessed. I fell in love with the Belle Isle Casino and vowed to either have my own wedding there or shoot a wedding there!!Read More
A few of my grad sessions have been on Belle Isle. This session was different. Delaney and her other showed me their favorite spots. It’s not very often that I’m shown the spots on where to shoot. It was an awesome change! I strive to have all my grad sessions to be unique. They may be in the same spot, but show the personality of the grad... not the location. For this reason, I loved this grad session because personality and uniqueness were the main focus. I loved learning more about Delaney and her mom!!Read More
It's no secret that I love to shoot in downtown Detroit. It's the one spot that I hope everyone chooses when they schedule their session. When I got the call for Cody, and all he wanted was graffiti, I was game! It was fun to find new and awesome spots in the city I love. Eastern Market is my favorite shopping spot but it's now my favorite graffiti spot. So many colors, so much artistry, and so many cool spots. I hope you enjoy this session as much as I did!!Read More
It's no secret that I love taking pictures in Downtown Detroit. I love the city and all the different aspects it brings to pictures. Detroit is unique in the sense that her people care for her deeply. A city that was once rooted in family farms, the lumber business, then the car industry, and lastly sports. She struggled for a while but the gardens are back, as well as the cars, and the sports are booming.
This momma to be is a lover of the city as well. She was all for finding all the crazy spots. January in Detroit was no problem for her. She rocked this skirt and her belly! This momma added whimsy to this city and I can't wait for you to see how!Read More
I have been lucky to photograph the special moments in my cousin's life. Her engagement, wedding, and now her maternity pictures! I'm happy to say that they had their beautiful baby boy last week (another post soon to come!) and all are doing wonderfully. We had a beautiful day in January, which is rare in Michigan. We spent the hour before the sun set to capture some wonderful moments on Belle Isle. The joy between these parents is felt by all that surrounds them. I am so very excited to capture their new bundle this weekend.Read More
