Little blessings

I was approached by my neighbor yesterday about a friend of hers who’s daughter was born with some birth defects and she was was telling me about the bad experiences her friend was having with finding a photographer who would take the time to capture the beautiful side of her daughter. Having to cancel a session because she had to take her daughter to the hospital is a legitimate reason to have to reschedule a session. Why is  that we […]

Why do I love Nature?

Why do I love nature? It may be that as child my parents made sure that my sister and me spent lots of time outside.  If it wasn’t thundering or lightning we were outside. Plus we grew up out in the country on a couple acres, with these awesome trails behind our house that we use to explore as kids. I just feel there is so much beauty to be seen in this world. Do you ever take a stroll […]

Shawn & Kayla

  I had the pleasure of photographing an adorable young couple from my church recently. We met at Island Park in Ann Arbor, what a great location. There was so many great spots to choose from for photos. By the river, a bridge, wood walkways, and great building with pillars. Shawn & Kayla have only been married a few years, so still practically newlyweds and you could tell when they looked at each other. They were great to work with […]

He and his wife Michelle are still practically newlyweds only been married a few years. They were a blast to work with they both, such a great sense of humor and were cracking jokes and laughing practically through out the whole session. Frank needed […]

About me….

With all the competition out there, how I do I stand out from the crowd?  It might be by forming a personnel relationship with clients and providing a unique product that the client will enjoy and come back again and again. But, let me start at the beginning which might give you better perspective of me. I grew up in a small town north of Flint, MI.  I have been obsessed with photography since high school.  It all started when […]

Aruna 5K

Last Saturday I had the opportunity to photograph the first annual Aruna 5K run, sponsored by Campus Crusade, held at the University Of Michigan campus. The weather was not ideal, rain mixed with snow.  Over 200 people participated and raised over $11,000 for human tracking in Mumbai, India. It was amazing to see how God was working that day in the hearts of the runners. The lead singer for the event’s band, Charity for Kisses, felt compelled to speak about […]

Networking with Ali….

Yesterday afternoon I met with fellow Ann Arbor area photographer Ali Mcwhinney. It was very refreshing to just talk about what what we love and our passion for photography. I really enjoyed the opportunity to be able to pick her brain about how she got started, her experiences and what marketing tips worked for her. I realized halfway through the conversation that we have very similar styles when it came to photography, editing styles and interests. I now strongly believe […]

Messy hair, Chicken soup and Savannah

This morning, I noticed that Savannah finally has enough hair to have bedhead. Oh it makes me smile just thinking about it as I type this, she enjoying her afternoon nap. Me and Alan are feeling a little under the weather so i decided to make chicken noodle soup. The weather here in Michigan has been so weird. Snow, rain, snow. I have to admit I am looking forward to this summer, it is my favorite time of year. Well […]

Enjoy the little moments….

Yesterday Savannah wandered into her room went right up to her bookcase pointed and made her usual sound  “ob0owya” when you wants something. Apparently she was not satisfied with my choices of books for her. When she was happy with what she selected. She then settle herself a spot on the rug in our living room for a little light reading. She looks so darn cute I had to snap a few shots. Now that she is a toddler it […]

Fall

As I look through my living room window I see our giant maple tree with an array of yellow and orange leaves. The sun is just coming up and everywhere you look it has cast a beam of orange on everything it touches. On this chilly October morning I am memorized by the beauty and instantly want to run out outside with my camera in hand. But, then I am also a little sad as I watch the leaves fall […]
