Pastel balloon garland | Isla

Pastel balloon garland | Isla

All I asked of Isla was to sit in front of her pastel balloon garland. Just a quick few minutes and a smile. Turns out, Isla's feelings about me haven't changed. She wasn't my biggest fan at her newborn session, or her 6 month session, and still not a fan at 1 year....

6 Month Photographer | Demian

6 Month Photographer | Demian

My goodness. My day today was made brighter by getting to be Demian's 6 month photographer. He is so stinking cute you guys, I can't handle it. Of course, why do kids choose photo day to not nap? Or to get up way earlier, or pop a tooth. It's always bad timing. I feel...

What’s the Right Age for a Newborn Session? | Kru

For the most part, the right age for a newborn session is a personal choice for your newborn photographer. Some will say under 7 days, some will say under 10 days, some stick to under 2 weeks. For me, I like them between 2-3 weeks old, with dad's work schedule, I...

Intimate Wedding | Beth and Adrian

Intimate Wedding | Beth and Adrian

If 2020 taught us anything, it was that we will find a way to adjust our normal. That includes the "usual" large, over the top wedding. And Beth and Adrian flowed and adjusted as needed, I'm sure with some stress, but they didn't let it show to me at least. They ended...

Macomb Maternity Photography | Clare

Macomb Maternity Photography | Clare
