the moments you’ll treasure

Milestone Photographer | Anderson

Milestone Photographer | Anderson

I had so much fun as Anderson's milestone photographer today. Like, we giggled non stop. He was not your average 3 year old. There is a full grown personality packed into this tiny little boy. These milestone sessions are so fun to do year to year as your kids grow...

Fraser Cake Smash | Vihaan

Fraser Cake Smash | Vihaan

I am obsessed with Vihaan's Fraser cake smash. When I say this kid has modeling in his future, I mean it. One Year Old Nerves I'm pretty sure when he came in he wasn't super sold on the idea. He just stared at me with his big brown eyes. He was apprehensive but seemed...

Harrison Twp Newborn | Emma

Harrison Twp Newborn | Emma

I got double the time with this stinker as her Harrison Twp Newborn photographer. She thought that one session wasn't going to be good enough, she wanted two! It doesn't happen often that I absolutely struggle to get a baby to sleep or be calm. I'm a big advocate for...

Sage green with gold cake smash | Peyton

Sage green with gold cake smash | Peyton

Pink and Gold Cake Smash | Mia

Pink and Gold Cake Smash | Mia

Mia came to the studio for her pink and gold Minnie cake smash. When her dad showed me the dress she would be wearing I knew I'd have to take my girlie side to a whole new level. This wasn't going to be your average smash, this was going to be classy with a touch of...

Jumbo balloon cake smash | Lana

Jumbo balloon cake smash | Lana

Sweet little Lana came in for her jumbo balloon cake smash. Mom wanted something sweet and simple, and the jumbo balloon fits the bill every time. Lana was nervous, as so many one year olds are when they come in. It's a new place and I'm a new person. But she was so...

Fraser Newborn | Abigail

Fraser Newborn | Abigail

Today I spent a few hours as Abigail's Fraser newborn photographer. She arrived with her parents, and big brother Henry. They called him Hank though and I just love what a power packing name that is on a little kid. It's so cute to me when little kids have big names....

Utica Newborn | Rebecca

Today is going to be a great day as a Utica newborn photographer. Today is going to be great. It's the mantra I kept telling myself as I head out my door to tackle a double header. Of course, not a baseball game, but a double newborn session day. It's not my first...

Warren Newborn Photographer | Avery

Warren Newborn Photographer | Avery

There is nothing that makes my heart happier as a Warren newborn photographer, than to know a new client saw my work from a past client, fell in love, and knew that they wanted me to photograph their family. There is nothing that makes my heart happier as a Warren...

St Clair Newborn Photography | Declan

St Clair Newborn Photography | Declan

I don't really have the words to describe how important this session feels for me, being present for Declan's St Clair Shores newborn photography session was such a special moment. I have had a jam packed schedule the last few months. But when Declan's mom called to...

Mt Clemens Newborn | Noah

Mt Clemens Newborn | Noah

These three boys make my job as a Mt Clemens Newborn Photographer a breeze. Their mom might disagree, but I speak the truth. February has been a month for boys. And boy siblings. It's been a whirlwind of blues, greens, browns and greys. I love each and every session,...

Mt Clemens 6 month session | Isla

Mt Clemens 6 month session | Isla

Isla has grown so much! It was so fun to hang out with her at her 6 month session. I'm not completely sure the feeling was mutual, but I really enjoyed it. She's a total doll, and I worked really hard to try for smiles. While she wasn't super smiley, she did deliver...

Mia's mom and dad had a special vision for their daughter's first birthday. They wanted a girly cake smash set, pink florals, wood elements, the teepee, and just all around light and bright. I feel like we hit it out of the park, don't you? Like many of my cake smash...

Dinosaur Cake Smash | Evan

Dinosaur Cake Smash | Evan

What an adorable little dinosaur cake smash we had! Evan has grown so much and he’s just a sweet little guy. He was so patient and calm. I think he takes the cake (see what I did there) for the longest lasting cake smash. He was in no hurry. He never attempted to get...

Macomb MI newborn photographer | Landon

Macomb MI newborn photographer | Landon

I recently talked to a high school student about my career choice as a Macomb MI newborn photographer. He asked me what I felt I had succeeded at, what I’d failed at. How I keep myself going. The hardest part of my day. What drove me to push on in the tough times, and...

Studio Maternity | Maring

Studio Maternity | Maring

Studio maternity sessions started as a way of booking more newborns. And it's developed into a love of making moms feel as beautiful as they look. As a mom myself, I understand that you might not always feel great, throwing up, swollen ankles, sore back, painful hips....

Newborn Table Poses | Dolly

Newborn Table Poses | Dolly

I thought I’d take some time to explain each of the table poses I do in a newborn session. I had Dolly in as a model call to help me get a jump start on photographing my backdrops at the studio. I have always dreamt of being organized, and having a great way to...

Studio Maternity | Katherine

Studio Maternity | Katherine

One of my favorite parts of a studio maternity session is meeting new people. I love working with your newborns, but I like to meet you before you become parents (for the first time, or maybe you’re adding to your family). Every mom has such a unique story, the life...

Fall Photos | Oliver

It's time to photograph my adorable little neighbor's annual fall photos again, he's not even 3 yet, but I have looked forward to this moment every year so far. My kids are grown and boring now 🙂 and I love sitting at my desk and watching Oliver explore with his...

Lifestyle Maternity | Courtney

Lifestyle Maternity | Courtney

I don't consider myself a lifestyle photographer, I love my posed newborns. But when it comes to these, I feel like lifestyle maternity is a great description. It's not studio light, its a very casual experience. I want you to feel at home, if you want to wear pjs,...

Hunting Cake Smash | Nolan

Hunting Cake Smash | Nolan

Nolan's dad requested a hunting cake smash theme for his first birthday. I've often over the years chatted with him about hunting, and growing up a hunter. My son feels like he has a big passion for hunting, and his birthday meal request every year is venison. Do you...

Family Session Giveaway Winners | Leadmon Family

Family Session Giveaway Winners | Leadmon Family

I adore this family. Sometimes, I meet someone, and I think, man, we could be friends. Maybe that’s creepy. I don’t know. I first met Lindsay a few years ago when she brought her son, Carter for birthday photos. She comes back every 6 months or so for an update, and...

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

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...

Studio Newborn Session | Maximus

Wild Things Cake Smash | Thaddeus

Wild Things Cake Smash | Thaddeus

When Thaddies mom requested a Wild Things Cake Smash I knew I had to do it right. His mom loves the natural, earthy look that only Joanna Gaines can do perfectly. I can't tell you how many times I set this theme up and moved things around, and took it down. Bought and...

Shelby Township Family Photographer | The Moore Family

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

When I decided that newborn photography was where my heart is at, maternity photography came along with it. At the time, it wasn't my favorite. Not because I don't think its an amazing time of life. I loved being pregnant. But, just like high school senior sessions, I...
