It has been about two years since I photographed baby Jillian at Millpond Park in Saline, Michigan. The session went so well, and two years later I am still totally in love with the portraits I captured. I’m so glad I got to photograph little Jillian. This session and these images are what made me fall in love with prints, and sent me on the path I’m on today as a primarily print photographer. I am so glad that her family has these beautiful images as tangible prints, and that they aren’t just on a hard drive somewhere. To schedule a consultation for your own baby’s portraits, contact me.

The #michaelschallenge has been making its rounds on the internet, so I decided to hop on the Bandwagon. Why not? Especially after Michael’s themselves endorsed it on Facebook! It’s not anything I ever would have thought to do on my own. But it really was a fun way to step outside the box! Children’s Portraits at Arborland Michael’s – Esther and Mae – #MichaelsChallenge I traveled to the Arborland Michael’s store (located off 23 at the edge of Ann Arbor) to photograph Esther and Mae. These two little girls had a blast exploring the store, as did I. This challenge really helped me look at products in a whole new light, and I had to keep myself from buying everything I saw! The girls were definitely on my side. They wanted what seemed like everything! Have you tried the #michaelschallenge? Do you want to? Contact me to set up your own session in Jackson or Ann Arbor!

Product Feature: Heritage Wood Prints

  These gorgeous wood prints have to be one of my favorite products out of everything that I offer. I’ve tried out other wood print products before, but found that I didn’t like the wood grain showing through the skin on images. However, these prints are different. They are technically a fine art print that is adhered onto wood, so the image looks exactly as it was intended, but it still has the beautiful wood edges. My wall art offerings are specifically chosen so that you can mix and match different types beautifully and seamlessly. I can help walk you through your selections. Think you want a wood print but aren’t sure? You’ll be able to look at all of my sample products at your consultation, and again at your ordering appointment. You won’t feel lost making decisions about what to do with your images as I am there to guide you through the whole process. About our heritage wood prints: Available as a circle print up to 20″ across Easy to hang! Come with a keyhole slot in the back Available with or without worn edges (sample photos above show worn edges) UV coated for protection Want to see […]

Lillie Park, Ann Arbor – Outdoor Maternity Portraits – Mariah For her outdoor maternity portraits, Mariah and I decided to meet up at the beautiful Lillie Park in Ann Arbor. Although I am primarily a Jackson, Michigan photographer, I sometimes travel to meet clients in the Ann Arbor area. Having grown up near Ann Arbor, I’m very familiar with the city. It’s a bonus that Ann Arbor has a variety of stunning locations, such as Lillie Park, to take beautiful photographs at. Lillie Park was a wonderful setting for an outdoor maternity portrait session. Despite being right near a main road (and the expressway!), the park felt private and secluded. Between the abundance of plants and the small lake in the park, it was perfect. This outdoor maternity portrait session took place in the fall and anybody from Michigan knows that it’s beautiful outdoors here in the fall. When planning her portrait session, I was hopeful that the weather would cooperate and we would get some wonderful autumn images. Although it was still greener outside than I was hoping, I love how the images turned out. Mariah already had two daughters, but this was her first maternity portrait session. I […]

Newborn through Cake Smash Portraits A baby’s first-year photography plan is one of my favorite things to do as a maternity and newborn photographer. It’s so exciting to get to watch a little one grow up and hit all those milestones in their first year. Having a plan ready to go from the beginning is the best way to ensure your baby’s milestones aren’t missed. I did pregnancy announcement photos and maternity portraits for Gwen’s parents, so when it came time to meet her I was so excited! Little Gwen has had her own strong personality from day one, and I can’t wait to see who she grows up to become. With 3 older brothers, her fierce determination is certain to be a great trait. I met Heather and James at a park in Ann Arbor to capture beautiful outdoor images for some of Gwen’s milestone sessions. And milestones they were! I was excited to hear Gwen began sitting independently right after her 6-month sitter session. For her one-year photo session, we did more traditional portraits as well as a cake smash. Gwen’s mom, Heather, runs a small business in Milan, MI called Finchy Cakes. As she bakes cakes and […]
