…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.

…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.

…Veronica | Senior Session | Temperance, Michigan…

Bright. Kind. Energetic. I would use those words to describe this Dewitt High School senior.  She drove down to my backyard for her senior photo shoot. A warm and sunny afternoon made for a wonderful evening with fantastic light. I can remember the stress of being a senior, and everyone wanting to know where you were going to college, what your major will be, what job you expect to have for the next 100 years…..So.Much.Pressure. So, we we chatted about other things. We had fun. She was a natural.

She plays the guitar and sings. She had a gig earlier that afternoon.That purple bow?

“It is my signature. Music is a gift. I always want to remember that.”

This is her last year in color guard. She brought along her flags for some photos. She did a brief performance and my son instantly elevated her to hero status. Rumor has it, she gave a fantastic performance as Dorothy in the Wizard  of Oz.  Her parents came along and I wanted to grab a few with all three of them. Right after, she asked if she could take one with her dad. Absolutely! They have a really beautiful and special relationship. She and her mom might be best friends. They are so proud of this lady (as they should be!) and it shows. She requested a hop up on his back for a picture…his response….

“just like old times..right, V?” I might have teared up.

…Trampas + Toni & Family | Lifestyle Family session | Felton, PA…

  …

Have you ever met someone that instantly made you feel like family? Maybe it is someone that you may just met, haven’t seen for ten years, don’t talk to but a few times a year, but know you are FAMILY. Once you meet up? You pick up right where you left off. You can spend hours cooking away in the kitchen, playing with the children, reminiscing with the adults. You just feel the love and the connection.

My mom’s side of the family is that family. They are truly very special.

I have never met any other family like this.

Last week, my children, my mother, and myself made a quick road trip (9.5 hours) to Felton, PA. York County Pennsylvania is the land of fantastic peaches, winding roads, gorgeous barns, and my family. We stayed with my uncle, visited with family, and soaked up as much family as physically possible in six days. Tears were shed, necks were hugged, laughter and memories were created.

This particular family?

They are my cousins, but I told Toni I was adopting her as a sister. My son calls them Aunt and Uncle. I love that. Toni’s smile and laugh are infectious. Trampas loves them all fiercely.

Their daughter is the sweetest. She spent hours playing with my kids, helping bathe/dress/feed my kids throughout the week. She is such a beautiful girl, inside and out. Their son? His eyes are incredible. He might be a best friend of my little boy. They referred to each other as “Somebody” and “Gave.” Too cute.

It was drizzling out when we started this session, which matched my mood as it was our last evening together. However, their smiles would warm up anyone. The beautiful colors were almost enchanting.

We had such a wonderful time there, I can’t wait to go back. The kids will be bigger, we will be older, but…..they will be there. Family.

…Three siblings…| Mini Family Session | Belgrade, MT

I have known this family for years. I love that I get to seem them almost every time I go home. They have three wonderful children. This was a semi-private session, but they graciously agreed to letting me share a few favorites. Next time, we might have to sneak a family photo as well ;).

The afternoon was perfect. The girls brought their umbrellas and asked if I would take a photo with them. Of course. Stinking adorable. The little boy. Oh. His curls. I might be jealous of his hair.

This was a really fun mini session. Their mom is a fantastic outfit planner. Everything worked so well together. Super sweet children.

Here are a few favorites!
