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 ;)

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!
