…Joey B. | Senior Portrait | Ida, MI…

…Dedicate oneself to fulfill the duties of everyday with exactitude and to study and work with all our strength. St. Peter Damien

We have recently joined a homeschooling co-op at a local Parish, and Joey’s family is a member. His family is wonderful and inspiring. The kids are polite, responsible, kind, respectful….I could go on and on. They are one of those families that you want your kids to be like. They have done an outstanding job with their kids. I wish they were writing a manual.

Joey is a senior and lives on a farm with the most amazing barns.  The first time we met them, my kids were introduced to pigs, chickens, cats, and turkeys. This instantly elevated them to hero status in my son’s eyes. I was really excited for this session as I enjoy new locations.  I love trying to capture a person’s personality through photos. I even told him I wouldn’t hold the Ohio State T-shirt against him.

He is a running back. University of Toledo bound and hopeful future engineer. Just after meeting him, you can tell how hardworking and considerate he is.

Joey, thanks for an evening and good luck!

…Autumn & Sebastian D.| Mini Session | Dundee, MI…

I had the opportunity to photograph a two seniors, twins. It was chilly day and the sun was permanently gone for the afternoon.  We were just wrapping up and heading to our second location, and added in a mini sibling session.  They made it so fun. The laughter. The inside sibling jokes. Quoting movie lines. One hundred percent joy. They made my job really easy. Their aunt and uncle specifically requested the red outfits. We shot for a bit and then headed to downtown Dundee. As we were walking down the steps across from the Old Mill Museum, Sebastian said, “lets do the Nae Nae.” I haven’t laughed that hard in a while. Their faces say it all. Thanks, you two.

Here are a few favorites.

…Autumn D. | Senior Portrait | Dundee, MI…

“the beauty in a woman is seen in hear eyes…the doorway to her heart….walk with the knowledge that you are never alone…” Audrey Hepburn.

Autumn, you are stunning, kind, and bring joy to those around you.

This Britton-Deerfield 2016 senior has a smile and laughing eyes that light up a room. Her laugh is infectious. I asked her what she wanted to be. An oral surgeon. She is accepted into her choice, University of Detroit-Mercy’s Dentistry program.  You will do amazing.

…Sebastian D. | Senior Portrait | Dundee, MI…

Mr. Sebastian. I feel like anyone who wears a bow tie deserves that title. He told me that he didn’t really smile much. I called his bluff. A future physical therapist. This Class of 2016 Britton-Deerfield senior has quite the future in front of him.

It was very very cold out. He never complained once, even while carrying my bag. A gentleman. A musician. A card shark. Bow ties. The newsboy hat. His accessories were fantastic. He brought his ukulele and played some Adele on the piano.  These photos share just a glimpse of his personality.

Thank you, Sebastian.

…Lyn and Jeff & family | Family | Freeland, MI

“You’re my every minute of my everyday……And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It’s you, it’s you, you make me sing..you’re my everything” Michael Bublé.

Life with kids is busy. Sometimes it is hard to just be.  I love it when times slows down just enough that you can just treasure the moment. I got to see one of those moments with this family.

We had about 30 minutes before the sun was gone for the day. They wrapped up in blankets and made this one amazing shoot. They even got to dance to their song, just only for a moment. Big sis loves little sis. Her face lights up when you tell her about their future together and all of the things she will get to do with her. Little sis is one of the happiest babies, ever. Mom and dad? These girls are truly blessed. They are some of the best people I know. They are the type of people you can talk to for HOURS into the early hours of the morning about anything under the sun. Hours of conversations. Hours of laughter. Hours of those cherished moments.

Here you go, Lyn and Jeff. You have one amazing life:

…Rich & Debbie | Family | Temperance, MI…

Rich and Debbie have six of the most beautiful children. They arrived to my house on a perfect afternoon, last week. I thoroughly enjoyed a peak into their lives. The giggles, the sweet little voices.

One of their daughters was instantly my best friend. She was so warm and affectionate just moments after meeting me. One girl is desperately fond of horses, something I understand so well. She wanted to play horses in the open field. One girl loved to pick flowers. The youngest girl wasn’t far behind as they explored and raced through the field. These little ladies love their brother. They each wanted to hold him for pictures. The kids might have played for hours. They played horses. We went on wagon rides. They played ring around the rosy. They laughed.

At one point, the mom and dad stole a quick kiss. One daughter exclaimed, “Oh, so romantic.” They make eleven years of marriage look beautiful.

“The greatest gift you can give your child is another sibling.” Saint Pope John Paul II

…Our family portrait | Temperance, MI…

“It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.” 1 Cor 13:-7-8

These three are my life.

They bring me more joy then I thought possible. We attempted self-family-portraits again this year.  I have been putting these off. Our weekends get so busy and I kept shuffling it toward the bottom. Our neighbor graciously agreed to stand in and provide some assistance. There were giggles, marshmallows, (one adorable pouty face!! that I just had to include…) and tickles. Pictures can only capture glimpses of my sweet babes personalities. I am thankful for them. My husband is quite simply amazing. My rock. He loves us all so much and shows us every day.
