Meet Emily { 2013 Dollar Bay Senior }

Emily’s session was earlier in the summer on a beautiful summer evening.   We found some fun historic areas to shoot in.   Emily was so incredibly photogenic and was so much fun to photograph!   We had a good time with lots of laughs and beautiful photos.  🙂

Thanks Teresa and Emily!

on to my newborn season…

I had my last senior session on Sunday.   What a year!   It’s been a super busy last few months so I’m looking forward to wrapping up the senior season and having a little bit of free time on my hands.   It’s hard to schedule sessions this late in the year because the weather is so unpredictable so it’s a good time to end sessions.

So, I’ll be moving on to the next thing…. Newborns!

I’ll be taking a very limited number of newborns November-May.   I love photographing newborns and they will fit into my schedule nicely over the winter months.

So if you or someone you know is having a new little babes between November and May, send them my way!   Sessions should be scheduled well in advance so it’s never too early to pencil in a date on my calendar.

Macro!

I received a new toy piece of equipment yesterday that I’ve been having fun playing around with.  I’ve been wishing I had a macro lens for a while and the time was right to get one now.   I have some newborn sessions coming up and am excited to get some beautiful close ups of teeny little baby goodness with this lens.

So I played around with my 10 year old scratched up and dirty ring 😉    So my sweet hubs etched in a little phrase for me (It says “forever loving you “).  He also etched in our anniversary which is a lifesaver..lol..   I can’t tell you how many times I have to look inside my ring to see what date I was married.   I confuse the day because my sister was married June 2nd and we were married June 1st and for whatever reason I can never remember which day is mine.   (yeah, my memory is scary bad).

Can you see the flaw in my diamond?   I actually love it because it makes it unique and when I need to send it in for maintenance I always know I’m getting my diamond back.   I love my ring.  Matt painted a house one summer to pay for it so he worked hard for it and that’s special to me.

Who doesn’t love life size lego!?   I’m sure my boys will get a kick out of this. 😉

Meet Beth { 2013 Houghton High Senior }

Beth’s session was earlier this Summer.   (Seems so long ago!)   I met Beth the day of our session.  She is the sweetest girl ever!  Full of smiles and laughs.  We had such a great time finding some new and unique locations to use.  Beth plays soccer at Finlandia’s field so we did part of her session on the field and around it.  She also plans to attend Michigan Tech in the Fall so we spent some time there also.  Each one of my senior sessions makes me smile when I think back on them and this one was no exception.

Thanks Beth for choosing me as your senior photographer!   I loved getting to know you and your Mom 🙂

Meet Alli {2013 L’Anse senior }

Alli’s session was pretty recent.   Alli wanted to wait until Fall with hopes of getting some of those gorgeous Fall colors.   The weather this late in the year can be so unpredictable but we lucked out on the day of her session with amazing weather!

Alli is another one I have had the opportunity to photograph several times over the past few years so I was excited for our session because I knew it was going to be a good one.  She is so photogenic and gorgeous!

Meet Mikayla { Houghton High 2013 Senior }

I had such a fun session with Mikayla this summer.  She just lights up when she smiles and was not afraid to laugh, which I love!   I always try to catch those laughing shots and that wasn’t hard to do with her 🙂

Thanks Mikayla and Jennifer for choosing me as your senior photographer 🙂
