I have known the lovely momma is this post for about 15 years. We met as super innocent 8th graders and have grown up together since. We've had some not so innocent times together, too many laughs, some tears, but no matter what, we've been there for each other from the start. It's been amazing to watch her family grow. This little newborn girl has two wonderful parents that love her so very much. This in home newborn session is one of my favorites. That blue accent wall made the perfect backdrop. And this little girl's nursery is the cutest thing ever!!!Read More
It's always a special thing to be apart of the new adventures in a person's life! A lot of times, it's for a person's wedding that I'm introduced into their adventures. Other times, it's through connections. I met this wonderful couple through a local group of creatives. I started following them on Instagram and then met them at a meeting, where they were discussing financing. Who are 'they' you ask? They are Rob and Maria!Read More
In the age that we live in, it's so easy to get a picture. We have cameras on our cell phones that we can instantly share with the world. The problem with this is that pictures tend to be stored on the computer or our phone. Sometimes they get lost forever when hard drives crash or cell phones get damaged. The Cloud is useful to store images in this situation but again we have it where the images are just being stored.
Those special moments need to be seen and not stored. Pictures deserve to be printed. They need to be on walls, or on tables so when you walk by, you get that special feeling of that memory. Or in albums so when you are feeling nostalgic, you can turn the pages and relive these sacred moments. These prints do not even have to be professional prints. I have prints on my walls of my trips. Every time I look at these prints, I get a wave of memories that will forever keep the trip alive.Read More
Ever since I was young, I loved horses. Everything about them. Their beauty. How majestic they are. Wanting to own one. There was just something about horses. Every book that I read about them, I wanted to be apart of them. I learned all of the types. I even went to a Dude Ranch a couple times and wanted to live the life of the wranglers there. I've tried Western and English and loved both (but prefer Western riding). Every time that I see a horse, I get excited.
When this session said that they wanted to do the shoot with horses, I was 100% all in. I was giddy the whole time. It was amazing. There were two different horses that we shot with and they were both beautiful. Of course, my human subject was also beautiful.
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
