Payton’s race for a cure

Please join us for the 3rd annual Payton’s race for a cure on Saturday October 1st. It will be taking place at Grattan Raceway, were there will be lots of activities for the whole family. I am proud to be able to donate some of my products that go towards this wonderful charity. Mitochondrial Disease can be heartbreaking and sweet little Payton is such a joy, I know she would love to see you there. We need to come together to try & help find for a cure. Here is a link to the website, be sure to check it out and read all about Payton’s story and how her family is fighting so hard for her. And of course no post is complete without a picture!

What a wonderful and touching event. I hope there is a big turn out and if I lived closer, I would definitely come. Such a pretty little girl, I love her smile in that second shot, she makes me want to give her a hug.

Beautiful Anticipation

Anticipation: who will our baby look like? Will he/she be a good baby or cray a lot? What color eyes will they end up having? These are all questions that I am sure every expecting parent asks themselves. Then when they finally arrive you can’t imaging loving another human being as much as you love your baby.




I had such a fun time with you guys. Thank you so very much and I can’t wait to meet your little one…Any day now;)

LOVE LOVE these Summer…. Especially the sun flare ones!!

Manuella Pararas-HulbertSeptember 27, 2011 - 8:14 pm

Absolutely lovely Summer. Great session.

Dancing in the Sun

This pretty much describes this session.


They danced…they tickled…they read stories…they loved…  Sometimes sessions hit you more then others. Not because they are not great or one is better then the other but just because you come across a family and think, they really truly love life and each other. This family is individually unique and I simply adore them.

Awesome! It makes the images so warm and natural when they are at ease like that. :) great job!!!

Kirsty-Abu DhabiSeptember 17, 2011 - 9:22 am

Gorgeous – love sessions where they have so much fun all you have to do is capture it!

HeatherSeptember 17, 2011 - 2:30 pm

You really did a great job! I love these pics – and so excited for them to see the whole gallery!

Renee WSeptember 20, 2011 - 5:35 pm

What an adorable family and the session looks like it was lots of fun! I love all the images and I’m sure they will treasure them. Wonderful job!

Manuella Pararas-HulbertSeptember 27, 2011 - 8:14 pm

Love these!!

Beautiful Beach – Hays Family

Someone really needs to light a fire under my toosh. I have been a TOTAL slacker with the blogging. I have no excuses, I would like to think I have a million excuses, but I don’t. the truth is that I just need to take the time to do it. I swore to myself I was going to be a better blogger and well, I feel like I have totally failed. Okay moving on!


I was invited to spend the day with the Hays family up in Ludington at the house they rented out for the week. WOW, that is how it describes it. It was AMAZING! The view, the laughter’s, the company, the food everything, well EXCEPT the over 270 steps it took to get to the beach. YIKES…let me tell you that was something else. We all did over 1000 steps that day and I was sore for 2 days after, lol! They forgot to include that in the brochure;) The view was really amazing and even pictures can’t describe how nice it was. I will have to blog more on that later! But for now, here is some images of our fun day!






Renee WSeptember 17, 2011 - 12:13 am

Looks like a fun day with a fun family! Great job capturing their vacation memories!

Beautiful Baby Bump

I think the title says it all for this blog post. What a beautiful baby bump! I was very nervous that this shoot would not happen this day. It was cloudy and rainy almost all day long. In fact it rained all the way until we left to meet. Then the rain stopped, the clouds started to clear and the sun started to come out! Everything was wet, but we didn’t care. This couple was up for anything (well almost, I’m sure;)) I had such a great time and I can’t wait to meet your little one. He should be arriving any day! Thank you so very much!:)

Renee WSeptember 5, 2011 - 12:06 am

I love everyone of these, especially the cute little shoe shot! They look so happy and ready to be parents, you can just see that they are overflowing with happiness!

Erin SSeptember 13, 2011 - 1:19 pm

Okay so that shoe shot with the flip flops? ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!! Love these :)
