Congratulations Jen and André! This gorgeous couple tied the knot on a beautiful yacht on the Detroit River! I cant begin to describe how amazing their day was! These two are so incredible and have the most loving family and friends! Here’s a few sneak peeks from today!


Little Milo: A Newborn Session

Meet little Milo just six days new in these pictures all snuggled up with his mommy, big brother, and daddy.  He is such a good baby and seeing him with big brother just melted my heart! There were so many sweet moments with the two of them, that I had a hard time choosing just one for this post. I will probably post more of them on the Facebook page so check in there for more cute lovable moments. Kim and Shawn thank you so much for having me over to capture these new moments of your beautiful family of four. Your boys are so adorable! Congratulations and I can't wait to send you the rest! 

Wyatt turns 6 months!

This little guy just turned 6 months and is one happy baby! His smile and joy are so contagious! So grateful to his mamma for bringing him into the studio last week. I've been dying to meet him! I hope his sweet smile brightens up your day! 

Circus Birthday Sneak Peek

This past weekend I photographed the most spectacular circus birthday party. There were so many adorable details I'll have to share a separate post.  This little cutie just turned one and I hope you love this little preview of how he enjoyed his day. Can't wait to share more soon! 

Happy Birthday Leo!

Family, balloons, cake, ice cream, confetti- Celebrating Leo's one year birthday was a blast! He enjoyed playing with the balloons, his cousins, and loved his cake so much he gave it a hug! He is one happy baby and it was so fun to watch him and his big brother enjoy the party. Happy birthday little buddy! 

A hole in ONE!: First Birthday Cake Smash

Happy one year birthday to this little guy who already likes to play golf just like daddy! He knew just what to do when we gave him the ball and club. Big sister was so lovey with him (just like she was for his newborn portraits).

Amber and Ben your babies are so sweet it was hard to choose only a few pictures for this post! I can't wait to share the rest with you. You are such a kind, caring, and beautiful family. I've enjoyed so much getting to see your little ones grow. 

Have a happy Father's day together!

Happy Anniversary

There's nothing better than living life with your best friend. And buying the same vehicle you had when you first were married (before kids)! How fun! I've been looking forward to anniversary pictures with these two and we had the perfect night for it. Congratulations Veronica and Neil for twenty years of marriage and twenty four years of friendship. 

 

 

Little Elliot is One!

Hard to believe it's already been a year since this little guy arrived! He is such a happy little baby always ready to smile for baby talk. I have loved so much getting to watch him grow and getting to take pictures of his silly big brother and sister. They always made pictures extra fun :) Morgan and Drew you have such a beautiful family. Thank you so much for choosing me to capture your portraits. I adore your kiddos and I hope to see all of you again sometime soon!

Sweet Little Ones

Some favorites from this morning's cake smash in the studio! These two loved eating cake (or rather frosting) and playing with bubbles. It was so fun celebrating their one year milestone! Rachel and Troy your girls are the cutest! Thank you for bring them in for pictures. It was so wonderful to see you all again!

Fall Family Portraits: Sneak Peek

A few favorites from last Saturday's family portraits. She is such a little cutie! She was a serious explorer of the woods and loved eating the apples I brought, but we caught a few smiles in that gorgeous morning light. So great seeing your beautiful family Matt and Sara! 

Little Autumn Cutie

Here's someone cute to brighten your day! This little autumn cutie has hit her 9 month milestone and will be a year in December. I can't believe how fast the year has gone! She's the happiest little girl I know and is now so curious and crawling everywhere. I just can't help but share her adorableness! 

At The Apple Orchard: The Chilcote Family

It's always such a treat to see this family! We had a lovely time at Meckley's apple orchard and I can't wait to go back this Friday!  The best time for apple orchard pictures are when the flowers bloom in spring April/May and in September when the apples are still on the trees. Ilike to keep an eye out for when the peek times are. So if you love what you see here, definitely contact me in advance to make sure you get the best out of the orchard experience. Happy autumn!

Chris & Jessica's Black Barn Vineyard Wedding

Chris and Jessica's day was blessed with sunshine, family and friends from all over the states, and so much to entertain! It was the perfect day!

When we arrived the Barn was absolutely stunning and the girls were all dressed in matching flannel shirts.!They were so cute laughing, getting emotional, and doting all over Jessica. It was adorable to see how close they all were! 

Growing up their families attended church together and it was at this very church where they first met each other. So prior to the ceremony, tucked away without seeing each other they took a moment to pray. And as guests were seated upstairs you could feel the excitement and joy of the two families ready to come together. 

At Black Barn Vineyard (BBV) everywhere we we went was picturesque! While guests enjoyed the cocktail hour, the bridal party explored the grounds and we made our way into the vineyards. 

Dinner was so delicious! The speeches were hilarious (including the best man's who couldn't be there but gave his via live video chat courtesy of the DJ), everyone enjoyed the sunset while playing lawn games, and talked into the night on the open bar patio. As the sky grew dark everyone filled the dance floor and the photo booth.

And before anyone could get tired (With exception of the little people), the S'more Bar was lit and everyone enjoyed sweet treats from The Oak Tree Lounge. Everyone stayed until the end of the night when it was time to say farewell and Chris and Jessica ran off into a flurry of bubbles to their honeymoon!  

Chris & Jess, it was such an honor to be a part of capturing your day!  You are truly blessed with so much love surrounding you and I'm so glad to know that you have God as your center. Much love and God bless you in your new life together! 

And last but not least, THANK YOUS!
A huge thank you to my incredible colleague, dear friend, and 2nd shooter, Jennifer Jacobs! You are my 2nd half! My mind reader! You do such amazing work! Thank you to Marilynn & Travis for having the cutest kids ever! To the staff at the Oak Tree Lounge, Thank you for the beautiful display of cocktails, wine, and s'more bar. You kept everyone so happy! To Wendy, Lloyd, and the staff of Black Barn Vineyard & Winery, thank you for how you took care of everyone, everything, and created such a beautiful space to celebrate! I hope to work with you all again!

A Walk In The Garden

The Garden at The Dahlem Center was the perfect place for little Miss E to explore while family gathered for pictures. I haven't seen her and Mr L since his newborn session and I could not wait to see them again! Thank you Shelly for coming out for pictures! You and your family are so fun to be around!
