Almost One! {Novi, MI}

This photo session with the D family is one that’s been a year in the making. When my coworker was pregnant, we had talked about doing maternity photos, but she had one of those pregnancies where she was sick for the majority of it so photos weren’t the top priority. Then when her baby girl was born, she was off for maternity leave and had family from India coming in and out of the country visiting, so it was hard to coordinate new born or even 3 month photos.

Then when her daughter was around 6 months old, she traveled to India to be with family there and we never really got around to photos. So when I found out her daughter was turning one soon, I asked if she still wanted photos and we jumped at the chance since we both miraculously had free weekends!

It was like it was meant to be ;)


A Day with the P Family {Novi, MI}

One of the most enjoyable parts of doing what I do is being able to meet new people and new family’s. Another perk is being able to work with returning clients, especially ones where I have been able to see the children grow! This family is one I have known for years and I have taken pictures of their children in the past few years. It’s always a treat to re-visit with families and take more photos for them!

The parents in this family attended college with my sister and brother-in-law and were all in the same social circles. They are all still close friends to me,  my sister and brother-in-law. It’s sometimes hard to believe that I have known them since I was 15 years old! Many of my sister’s friends are like older siblings to me, and have always treated me like family. And so being able to watch them grow up, get married, and see their lives evolve is one of the coolest things to witness! I hope I can continue to help capture some of these sweet moments for them in the future.

Thanks to the P family for not only letting me take these adorable family photos for you, but for continuing to be an important part of my life!


It’s a Girl! {Ann Arbor, MI}

Ann Arbor in the spring time is one of the most beautiful times of year. That is, when it doesn’t snow. Anyone who lives in Michigan knows our state motto: “Hate the weather? Wait 5 minutes!” But when the sun decides to shine and the temperatures are higher than 40 degrees, everyone takes to the outdoors and enjoys what Ann Arbor can offer!

I had the pleasure of taking photos for my friend Amber and her beautiful family. I’ve taken so many photos of Amber since I’ve known her, but this time I was a little nervous.

Her sister- and brother-in-law are a wife-and-husband photography team and own a business in Salem, OR called Vibrant Photography. I don’t know about anyone else out there, but I was nervous to take photos of photographers. I don’t like to let any clients down ever, let alone clients who know the ins and outs of this process!
