Shelby Township Family Photographer | The Moore Family

Shelby Township Family Photographer | The Moore Family

2020 took a lot away from us. Socializing was a big part of our loss. I've known Ray since high school, and Erica shortly after. Our families have been friends for a lot of years. So it was nice to see them again, even if it was just to be their Shelby Township Family...

Family Session | The Lewis Family

Family Session | The Lewis Family

We celebrated sweet Arya's first birthday with a family session. It was so much fun to see the family again. Arya is such a bubbly little girl, if I even looked at her she busted out a big smile. I can't help but smile back at her. It's easy to see where she gets it...

Shelby Township Extended Family Sessions | Trish’s Family

Shelby Township Extended Family Sessions | Trish’s Family

Fall season is here and the outdoor extended family sessions are in full swing. I do a good mix of immediate family and extended family sessions throughout summer. It's a great way to get some fun group photos when the whole family is together. If you've never met...

Engagement Photography | Liz and Zac

Engagement Photography | Liz and Zac

Liz and Zac are one of many couples dealing with this crazy year and still planning a wedding. I can't do much to alleviate the turmoil Covid is causing on my couples, but I thought it would be fun to get out and do some engagement photography to celebrate their love....

Mt Clemens Cakesmash Session| Brynley

Mt Clemens Cakesmash Session| Brynley

Sweet Brynley was at the studio for her Mt Clemens cakesmash session. It was a bittersweet moment. She's the daughter of good friends, and it's the first time we haven't been able to be around to watch friend's kids grow through their first year. We always love to...

Cake smash Session | Mila

Cake smash Session | Mila

It's so fun to have Mila back at the studio to celebrate with a cake smash session. She is growing so much, but still has the most beautiful head of hair. Mila was not very interested in her cake smash session. As is with many one year old's right now, they've spent a...

Petite Newborn Session | Leo

Petite Newborn Session | Leo

I have two options when it comes to newborn packages. Today we will focus on the petite session. This is for baby only. So no sibling or parent poses are included in the petite session. This is a great session because we get to take our time and really let baby shine....

Southeast Michigan Newborn Session | Evan

Southeast Michigan Newborn Session | Evan

There is nothing like giving your first born a sibling. If you've been in this spot, its a time of loving more, sleeping less, probably crying, wondering what you did (LOL). As a Southeast Michigan Newborn Session Photographer, some of the hardest photos are those...

Chesterfield Extended Family Photographer | The Dowd Family

Chesterfield Extended Family Photographer | The Dowd Family

Every summer I look forward to family session season. But most of all, its the extended families that I adore. And this Chesterfield Extended Family Session was my first one of the year, it felt so good to be back to what I love. Every year growing up I remember my...

Mini Maternity | Linsey

Mini Maternity | Linsey

One of my favorite parts of getting to know my newborn clients is the complimentary mini maternity session I offer. I think a big part of trusting your newborn photographer is knowing who you are handing your beautiful new baby over to. I can tell you all the things I...

Engagement Photographer | Christy and Jason

Engagement Photographer | Christy and Jason

We suffered some major losses over the course of 2020. For my wedding couples that meant big changes to the dreams they had laid into their wedding plans. That included Jason and Christy. Read below to hear about my time as their Engagement Photographer. I can't even...

Detroit Engagement Session | Kevin and Ebony

Detroit Engagement Session | Kevin and Ebony

This whole Covid crisis has really been a wild ride. Almost every wedding on my calendar this year has postponed or downsized to a celebration only a fraction of its original size. Kevin and Ebony are in that crowd. When I heard that they were postponing their...

Simple Cake Smash | Nico

Simple Cake Smash | Nico

When Nico's mom requested a simple white cake smash I was so excited. I love a new theme, and finding a way to make it beautiful and exactly what parents imagine. She tells me he loves to read, and she wanted to incorporate that into part of his photos. So we started...

Cake Smash Session | Charlotte

Cake Smash Session | Charlotte

I couldn't believe it when this little mop of curls walked into the studio. Charlotte is a big girl now, with big girl curls! She brought in the cutest little Minnie romper for her cake smash session. We decked the studio out in pink white and gold and my baker Amber...

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...

Macomb Milestone Photographer | Carter

Macomb Milestone Photographer | Carter

Carter was at the studio again, this time for his 2 year photos. This kid is so cute, I'm so lucky to be his Macomb Milestone Photographer. This age can be hard (ok, fine, any age can be hard). But coming to the studio with an open mindset really makes all the...

First Birthday Donut Smash | Poppy

There is no better smell than fresh donuts in the studio. It's intoxicating. So I'm sure you can imagine how great the place smelled today! Why do I have an army's worth of donuts in the studio? Poppy came in to celebrate her first birthday, and we're doing a donut...

What Should We Wear To Our Newborn Session | Eli

What Should We Wear To Our Newborn Session | Eli

I get this question all the time. "What should we wear to our newborn session?". Inquiring minds want to know, so I'm going to help. I think no matter what I say here, it's really important to have a conversation with your photographer about their photography style,...

Farmington Hills Newborn Photographer | Thaddeus

Farmington Hills Newborn Photographer | Thaddeus

Donut Smash | John

Donut Smash | John

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Your cake smash doesn't have to involve cake! I know it's a birthday party staple, but the first birthday is all about documenting your child as they are now. Why not document a favorite food too? For John's session we did a...

Macomb Milestone Photographer | Carter

Ahhh sweet, sweet little Carter. I had no idea what I'd get as Carter's Macomb Milestone Photographer. He came in for his 18 month photos, and it can be a hard age. I find that after 6 months there is always a risk of some stranger danger. They are trying to be...

Grosse Point Woods Fresh 48 Photographer| the McHenry Family
