Princess Alexis! | Cancer Remission Celebration Session | Northern Michigan Photographer

September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month, and in honor of Princess Alexis, I wanted to help bring awareness by sharing some of her story. This photo session took place in August 2017, with the ripeness of summer warmth helping us celebrate her incredible new diagnosis: REMISSION.  What a beautiful, wonderful, splendid word! I wanted to make her feel like a fairy tale princess, so…

F. Family | Fall Session on the Farm | Northern Michigan Photographer

Last fall I met up with the F. Family at their family farm to update their pictures before the holidays!

It was a cool evening but with some snuggles, warm hats, and cozy blankets, we kept warm. Thank you again for bringing…

Cousins | Fall Family Session | Northern Michigan Photographer

You know those days when you realize you have completely forgotten to squeeze in your own family for a session in the middle of busy season? When Grandma is wondering when she’ll see the traditional yearly capture of her grandkids, it’s November already, and the color in the foliage is so faded it’s actually non-existent? How about those days when you think it’ll work…

A. Family | Orchard Blossom Golden Hour | Northern Michigan

I love orchard blossom time! There is no better spring moment than when you can walk through an orchard in full bloom, each aisle becoming its very own “White Way of Delight”!

2016 is swiftly winding to a close, and yet here I am still catching up on 2015 sessions and images! Today I’m sharing a few of my girls last fall, when we had these gorgeous sister sets from Rainey’s Closet rented for fall family pictures. I love how sweet they all looked in these coordinating sets that were pulled together by the owner, Erica….
