I know this world is going to be better because of the impact that Emily is going to have on it.  Emily is graduating from Tecumseh High School in only a few short weeks! It’s crazy how quickly time flies.  I know great things are in store for her after graduation.   

Emily was on my Class of 2016 Elite Model Team,  so I’ve gotten the chance to work with Emily a few times prior to her senior pictures, making this shoot fun and comfortable.  I scarcely had to coach throughout her shoot, she’s such a natural in front of the camera.  She has a wonderful personality that shines through her in her photos.  I think she might get that from her mom Carrie because I love the time I got to spend with both mother and daughter.  Carrie’s been a great role model for her daughter since she is someone who has such a beautiful and vibrant personality.  Emily, and her family, has a special place in my heart. 

Emily’s senior pictures were so much fun to capture.  She was up for the challenge of multiple scenery changes as we went to a few of my favorite locations in Manchester, MI.   Our final stop was Em’s ballet studio in Downtown Tecumseh, where we simply ‘created’.  There’s nothing better in the world than to draw energy from another artist, which makes Em’s senior shoot one of my all time fav’s.  It’s always fun to create portrait art with another truly talented artist! 

Emily – I will be cheering you on, sweet girl, as you graduate in a few weeks! I know great things will come your way and I cannot wait to see where life takes you.

Did you know that the lily flower has long been a symbol of innocence, purity and beauty?  Given a history to a name like that, it makes sense that this little girl is a precious little beauty!  I really enjoyed taking sweet baby Lilee’s newborn photos.  This little one truly is little because she graced this earth a whole month early!  When she was born she weighed just 5 pounds! 

Lilee was a dream to photograph!  She slept peacefully during her entire photoshoot, which enabled me to get a variety of stunning photos of her.  It was endearing to see Lilee’s doting parents snuggle her in-between sets and of course it was a huge honor to be able to take Paul and Ashlee’s first family photo, as they adoringly held their tiny newborn. 

These will be wonderful memories the family can continue to cherish as their Lilee grows to be even more beautiful, just like her namesake flower’s meaning.

Sweet bliss! It always makes taking pictures more fun whenever you feel a connection with the family, and baby Oliver’s mom, Liz, felt like an old friend! We couldn’t get over how Oliver was able to sleep through the entire photo-shoot. We were just waiting for the second he would wake up and cry, but thankfully he was as peaceful as can be the whole time. I don’t know about you guys, but I am a sucker for little baby rolls, and this cutie was such a little chunk! Perfect in every way possible!

I’m in love with natural organic earth tones, which matched this little one’s sweet freshness. My favorite picture is the one where Oliver is resting beneath the quilt made by his very own grandmother. This image truly melted my heart! Bringing in this personal touch really made this photoshoot extra special for the entire family. I believe that this blanket will be something that Oliver grows up with and cherishes forever, and feel so blessed that I was able to capture the very first memory he had with the quilt and Mum was able to send a beautiful portrait of that image back to Grandmother in England. I am so blessed that I was able to work with this little angel!

At the end of the session we were even treated to a little peek of his gorgeous eyes. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for Oliver and his sweet family <3

Oh, geeze! What a little bundle of joy this sweet girl is!  It was such a pleasure to photograph this little miracle baby!  She’s a testament to the power of prayer and the blessing of her birth was felt by every member of Norm and Ashley’s sweet family.  Norm and Ashley are also foster parents – talk about huge hearts!  This is a truly unique couple who has a vision that goes beyond a typical day-to-day grind of working parents. Their story is very inspiring; I instantly connected to their love obvious for children.

During this session, the joy that filled the room was easy to feel and impossible not to join in on. They were so incredibly happy while holding their sweet new bundle, staring into her eyes.  It was as if their world was finally complete.  God is good!!!

It was such an honor for me to be able to capture such a joyful time in their lives, and provide them with timeless newborn portraits they’ll cherish forever!

Irish Hills Senior Portrait Photographer | Kenzi

“Your heart is free.  Have the courage to follow it.” – Braveheart

Oh, the places this girl will go! Kenzi is one of those people that attracts literally everyone in the room. The aura she displays to others is one of pure beauty – inside and out. She has a kindness about her that I absolutely adore. And just take a look at that smile in the images below! She truly is captivating (not to mention – she is an amazing volleyball player at Columbia Central High School)!

Kenzi was one of my Class of 2017 Model Team girls and let me tell you – I cannot handle the fact that she is graduating!! I absolutely love her and her family and it makes me so sad to think that she will soon be leaving here to go out and explore her own adventures. But, nonetheless, I am so proud of the things she has already accomplished and will surely accomplish in her future.

I was secretly tickled to death when I saw Kenzi applied to my Model Team, during her Junior year; it was always a fun adventure every time I got this girl in front of my camera!  And I love that Kenzi and her mom knew exactly where they wanted her senior pictures taken at.  We took some photos around her gorgeous home along with some other great spots around Clark Lake.

Kenzi, you are incredibly gorgeous and I’ve loved working with you so much! Good luck on the amazing journey you have ahead of you!

After Kenzi and her mom had time to select their favorite images from Kenzi’s senior photoshoot, I helped mom design a gorgeous portrait wall grouping with 3 of their favorite pictures.  Below is the digital mock-up I created specifically for mom’s wall space.  Needless to say, I can’t wait to see these stunning gallery wraps hung!Senior pictures Naples Florida
