Renee + Johnny

I've known Renee since we were young kids and am so glad that she asked me to photograph her wedding. I actually did her engagement photos last fall as well. Her wedding was held at Crystal Gardens in Howell, MI and was a perfect backdrop for their wedding.

Emily's Dance Recital

Meet my adorable, rambunctious and silly five (almost six) year old niece, Emily. She is always the shy girl until she warms up to you and then you better watch out as she will outdo you in the world's best pig noise rendition or reciting the alphabet backwards, which she can do with ease :) This little girl has won my heart and I was so excited to be invited to see her on stage this year as I missed it last year. You can see the shy Emily and the spunky one mixed throughout these photos. Love her to pieces!! 

Jenny + Brian

I've had Jenny and Brian's wedding date circled on my calendar for well over a year so when the date actually came I was eager to start shooting. A mid-April wedding with no leaves on the tree left me stumped, but this wedding party didn't mind a little brisk cold. The bride's sister was a good friend of mine so I felt like I was part of the group. Such a fun group to shoot!

Amanda + William E-Session

Amanda and I took a math class together back in high school and have stayed in touch ever since. I was honored when she asked me to photograph engagement photos for her and William. They both decided to do the session at the boat house on Eastern Michigan's campus where they actually met. It's hard to tell its actually middle of spring in this photo, but the cold weather didn't stop them. Here is my favorite photo from the day.

Meet Theo!

Yes, he may have the most adorable name out there, but he is absolutely adorable too! I've been on a baby photo-shoot kick lately and this little man stole my heart. And the cat that loved to jump into the shot. I wish I had a shot to show you, but believe me someone is getting a little jealous of a new brother :)

Meet Lucas!

I'm warning you it is hard to not want to just squeeze his cheeks. He comes from two gorgeous parents and you can tell he got the good genes as he already knows how to flirt and smile at just a few weeks old. Lucas is stationed in Hawaii with both Mom and Dad so ladies watch out in a few years...adorable Lucas will be a surfing ladies' man I'm sure ;)

Meet Emmit

This little boy is my nephew and I'm absolutely smitten by him. He is now a younger brother to Dawson and the two of them are both adorable. Can't wait to see these guys grow up and so excited that I'm a part of their lives!
