Well the weather is finally improving. I hate Michigan so much sometimes, but then we get beautiful sites like this within a week after having snow!
If you would like to book an evening session to capture you and your family with a sunset, give me a call, I have a few places in mind!

Yesterday I met up with Andy and Riki to take some maternity shots before she POPS!!! Only a little over 2 weeks before her due date! Andy and Riki live on Michigan Center Lake so we headed out to the lake for a couple of shots, the day was beautiful but talk about FULL SUN!!! Riki was up for whatever and did a great job ordering Andy on what he needed to do during the shoot! Thanks Riki!
Can't wait to take pictures of Madeline very soon! I wish you both the best and enjoy your rest for the next few short weeks! It will be here before you know it.

Ok, so any of you who know this family, keep it quiet! This session is a surprise for a mom with 5 kids! They took the time to all get together and coordinate and get something for their mom that I am SURE she will really enjoy!
A little bit about this photo shoot! It started out as my WORST nightmare. We met at Hidden Lake Gardens, all that was great. It was a GORGEOUS day! The first one we have really had where it breaks 60 degrees in a long time. I opened my camera bag got everything out and ready to go. Position everyone for the first shots and my camera doesn't DO.A.THING. I look on the under side of my camera and realize that my battery door is open. Ok... no big deal, I knew that I put my entire charger and everything in my camera bag when I VERY CAREFULLY got everything together this morning. I do several double checks anytime I go on a photo shoot to be sure I have everything in place and all set. I am actually a little bit crazy about how many times I check things because I just like to be cautious. Well, my battery to my camera is NO WHERE. I am frantically searching.. no luck. I had things out back at the gate house when I was talking to the man working there earlier in the day. I go back check with him and pretty much the entire staff at Hidden Lake Gardens. They were all great, but no luck. I decide to call Keri and ask them to look again in the area where we were. To make a long story short, Corey found my battery it must have fallen out into the flowers, I still have NO.IDEA.HOW. I have several batteries that I use for back up, however, I didn't take any with me today because I was SO cautious when I packed my bag that there really wasn't any reason to. Next time... I will probably always carry about 5 batteries. (they are about $100 a pop!) But well worth not looking like an entire idiot to a family who doesn't know me at all. Honestly guys... I usually have it all together. I am so sorry you had to witness such udder chaos. Thank you so much for your patience. You were all wonderful.
So... now that I have rambled on about my Lucielle Ball like day.... here is a sneak peek of what we got today. This family is absolutely adorable and once everyone loosened up and started to enjoy themselves I think we got some great shots! Can't wait for you all to see all of your images!!! Enjoy!
