On a personal note,

Be yourself. You are beautiful.

You don’t owe anyone an apology for not fitting their ideals of beauty, of cool, of popular.

That kind of confidence shows on your face, shows in your decisions, and sometimes, it even shows in front of a camera.

Natural Light Children’s Portraits – Happy 1st Birthday Ayden

Mother and Son Outdoor Portraits

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!

Congrats Rachelle and Josh – 10th Anniversary Flashback!

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 some of my favorites from their wedding day story. Enjoy! Congrats, newlyweds!

If you’ve followed my photography for any good length of time you’ve seen this young lady before – on stage, dressed to impress, and followed by my brags of all kinds. Add to the brags a mega dose of pride as she’s graduated high school and headed off to college this fall! Congrats, Marissa, and best of luck in your studies!
