Murphy Family

So many favorites from Monday’s family portraits! These guys are always so fun to see and I just love their busy boys! We had fun exploring a new place, looking at the fall leaves, and being silly together. I just love getting to capture moments like these! Thank you Murphy family for working around the weather and making pictures happen on a Monday. You guys are the best!

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!

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! 

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!

Kevin & Hannah's Michigan Wedding Reception

Labor day weekend was crazy gorgeous here in Michigan and so perfect for celebrating this beautiful couple!

In just a little over a month these two will be married in California where they met! To make sure everyone would be able to join in on the celebration, a pre-wedding reception for family was held at Kevin's parents lake house. The breeze from the lake, boat rides, kayaking, and full service ice cream truck kept everyone pleasantly cool. A special thanks to Lauren from Leave it to Us Wedding & Event Planning for all the beautiful touches you added to their celebration.  Congratulations Kevin and Hannah! I wish you all the best!

Bubbles Of Fun and Turning One!

Happy birthday to this sweet little guy who will be turning one very soon! 

Capturing the busyness of a one year old is so much fun! He loved riding his car and catching bubbles. We set out a big bucket of soapy water and sponges for him and he wasn't so sure what this car washing business was all about. But boy did he look so adorable all sudsy in his overalls! 

Emily & Jim it was so wonderful to meet you and your sweet little Mr. C! He is truly adorable!!! Can't wait to share more with you soon! 

MJ Family Portraits

So glad I was able to catch up with this wonderful family last Wednesday before their daughter heads back to college. The evening was just perfect for pictures and it was fun getting to capture a bit of what they all love to do together. 
Thank you MJ family for having me out to your beautiful home. It was a lot of fun and I just adore your little dog! Blessings to you as you all start another new school year! 

Sneak Peek: Spring Garden Family Portraits

Sneak peek from yesterday evening's family session! Their beautiful girls are just the sweetest! It was our first time at this garden, there was so much to see! Their littlest one just melted my heart and lead the way around the garden! We had fun exploring with her! 

Little T's Birthday Bash!

Little T's birthday was loads of fun! He was in the best of spirits and enjoyed the fun room filled with balloons, his first bite of cake, opening presents, and a shower of confetti with his family! It was such a joy to meet his whole family and to see everyone enjoy him! He is one blessed little boy! Compliments to his aunt for her beautiful work on the cake and cupcakes and to little T's mom for all the beautiful decorating! Happy birthday little T! One is so much fun!

Little E's Cowgirl Cake Smash

Happy birthday to little Miss E who turned one this month! 

Isn't she such a doll? Her little get up and sweet brown eyes are almost too much to handle! I was so impressed with how great of a walker she already has become! Her mom and I were very excited preparing and planning for her pictures and could not wait to see what she would do! And although she had a little bout of teething that day and the horsey was a little too intimidating, she was definitely happy with the cake! Major thanks to the beautiful artistic skills of Beth from Red Barn Bakery! And a big thanks to Shelly for choosing me to help capture her one year milestone! I hope to capture more memories for you and look forward to watching her grow through the years! 

Little Miss E's Cake Smash!

The joy and the excitement of a little one are so contagious!!! Hope these pictures bring a smile to your day!

What a joy to be able to see Little Miss E again! Last time I saw her she was a tiny newborn! Can't believe it's been a year already! It was incredibly fun watching her enjoy her cake and seeing how expressive she is! I can't get enough of her smile!
