Sometimes my job behind the camera is a piece of cake. My clients’ ideas and translate into a creative energy, smiles abound, and it’s almost effortless. Like I said, a piece of cake. If anything, Quanay and her son Ayden made it a slice of 1st birthday cake when we met up for Ayden’s first birthday shoot.
Growing up is hard to do. I have a feeling once Ayden discovers that his birthday celebration includes cake he’s going to be just fine!
Happy first birthday Ayden! Hope it’s full of smiles, fun, and of course… cake!

On a quiet Monday evening several springs back I meandered Saugatuck, Michigan with a camera and tripod. Monday was my weekend, this quiet town was somewhere new. The moon was astounding that night and the piers were a quiet spot for a pause along the Kalamazoo River. Not all the Previously Unpublished images I’ve set […]
On a sunny April Saturday 10 years ago today I joined Rachelle & Josh for their springtime wedding celebration at the Morris Estate Chapel in Niles, Michigan. Colorful tulips were in bloom outside the former Centre Meeting House, now a country chapel where the newlyweds were married. As they celebrate their anniversary today, here are […]
While rummaging for some #ThrowbackThursday images to Instagram I noted several rolls of unmarked, processed 35mm film I had set aside in 2012 and all but forgotten about until early 2015. Holding the negatives to light I instantly recalled the moments I took with my Holga but was surprised by the images I had waited […]

The time machine is still churning, back to before this blog was up and running. Eight years back I joined Emily and Drew as they celebrated their September wedding day at Silver Beach along Lake Michigan in Saint Joseph, Michigan. A stormy day may have dampened the dunes but it didn’t stop the Newlyweds and […]
Autumn has been in the air around here since at least last weekend. Warm jackets are out, the colors on the trees are starting to turn, and apple cider is a regular beverage. My favorite season has begun. Meredith and Chris’ wedding day was full of beautiful handmade personalized decorations, sculptures, pottery and floral arrangements. […]
