Perspective: How Your Point of View Helps to Tell the Story

When I was about 5 or 6 months pregnant with my first child, I asked my husband to take a profile picture of me. We don’t have any family in town, so I wanted to post a picture for family to see. I wanted it to be a flattering shot, of course. I had him... OPEN POST

Look Who’s Two! {Ann Arbor, Michigan Child Photographer}

My favorite cliche about parenthood is “the days are long, but the years are short.” So true because somehow my sweet baby, Leo, turned two.

Family of Three {Saline, Mi | Child & Family Photographer}

I love a sunset session. The light is just perfect, and as  photographer, there are so many ways to play. I love the backlight in this first image of one of my favorite families. The glow around their hair and the beautiful grass in the background are what late summer is all about. Thank you... OPEN POST
