Points toward accreditation are awarded based on the scores and are accumulated based on an international judging system. Of the 8 images I submitted, 5 scored…

J. Family | Maternity Session | Northern Michigan Photography

These two gorgeous parents-to-be were up from Florida visiting family last March when we met up in Grayling for some **cold** winter morning pictures! Thankfully we didn’t spend too much time outside before coming in for a few studio portraits to complete their maternity session. Thank you so much for coming to see me while you were in Michigan! And congratulations on the birth…

Portraits of Four Generations | On-Location in Lakeland, FL

It’s not every day that you can capture four generations of mothers and daughters! What a privilege to be able to gather these precious ladies together for some memorable photographs. With one branch of the family in Florida, one in Michigan, and one in Oregon, it’s a challenge to make a photo session like this happen. Thankfully, there’s a beautiful park where the golden…

Brand New! | S. Family | Northern Michigan Photographer

I can’t believe this little guy is already a year old! I love this sweet family so much, I wish we could get together every week. I’m always thankful for the times we do see each other, and I was so excited to get to meet their newest addition in December 2017 for a super quick (yet startlingly eventful) photo shoot to capture the…

Maria B. | Senior Session | In the Autumn Colors!

Maria came to see me last fall for her Senior Portraits while the brilliant colors were at their peak. We had a great time wandering through the park and downtown Grayling during golden hour and right at sunset for these images!     Thank you Maria! I’m so glad you came to me for your senior pictures!

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! They have the most magnificently beautiful children who are sweet as can be but still have those impish smiles you see below! 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”! Every tree “bestarred with its tufts of blossom”. I think orchard blossom sessions became my very favorite the moment this family stepped in front of my camera last May! This session was…
