Madissen // 2014 senior

Madissen met with me earlier this summer
to help me kick off my senior season.
She is always fun to photograph with her
big smile and amazing eyes.   Plus we were able to
catch the apple blossoms in bloom!

Nate + Hilary { Keweenaw engagement }

We took an afternoon last week to
do some engagement photos for Nate and Hilary.  They were
in town to do some major wedding planning for their wedding
next year.  I told them to just enjoy their time together
as I photographed them.   They have been living apart long distance for
quite some time so they had no problem with that 😉   They are
all smiles when they look at each other.   Love that!

Ryan + Andrea { Keweenaw Mountain Lodge wedding }

Ryan and Andrea were married on the
most gorgeous day at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge in Copper Harbor
this past Saturday.  The Lodge provided a gorgeous backdrop to
their beautiful rustic themed wedding.

Ryan and Andrea are two of the sweetest people
you will ever meet.  I overheard several times how much
Andrea does for others.  She was overwhelmed when everyone
gathered around and helped make her day everything she wanted
it to be.  🙂

The day started out pretty cloudy and cool but
soon turned into a gorgeous sunny day.

The girls got ready in one of the Lodge’s quaint
rustic cabins. Continue reading “Ryan + Andrea { Keweenaw Mountain Lodge wedding }”

The Studio Reveal

So my space is finally at a point where
I can show it to you all.  It’s still a work in progress
but it’s fully functional and being used.  The main thing left to do is
finish decorating the walls.   I do believe more canvas’ will
be ordered this week 😉

I leased this space back in March and
slowly but surely put it together.   I wanted to furnish it
as inexpensively as possible so most of the items are thrifted.
The main splurges were the couch (from Sit N Sleep) and the TV.
The matching chairs came from home.

I made the curtains using inexpensive
Walmart panels.   The round table and chairs and the coffee
table were thrifted and painted.
The area rug is from Urban Outfitters.
The TV dresser is from Goodwill.   I painted it
a fun green and re-used the knobs by spray painting them
a matte black.The shelves are temporary until I
get more matching ones.   I brought the bins from home but
first gave them a fresh coat of paint.Most of the accessories were thrifted also.I always have Jone’s soda for my seniors 😉This place makes me happy when
I walk in the door.  🙂   I use it to meet with
wedding clients, hold pre-consults and ordering sessions with seniors.
I’ve even done a little shooting
in here.  Previously I did all this in my home but as
my business grows this is so much more convenient for
my family and my clients.
