A contest giveaway!

This time, the contest is not mine... but I am certain so many of you are going to LOVE this website and designer as much as I do.

A few weeks ago, Lisa (owner of Fancify and the Design Actually blog) sent me a couple of headbands to try out. I enlisted the modeling help of some of my adorable clients and the results are wonderful! These flowers/headbands that Lisa makes, are absolutely top notch hand crafted quality. She has several different bands to choose from, color combinations and sizes.

Lucky for you... she is hosting a contest this week on her blog! Be sure to stop by Fancify and Design Actually, then follow the directions on her blog post to enter the contest... AND to top it off, if YOU (one of my blog followers) wins her contest... I will offer a $25 print credit towards your next order! BONUS!!!

Enjoy! Can't wait to hear what you think of Lisa's items!

Brady 8 month session - Brooklyn, MI Photographer

I absolutely adore this little guy! He has grown so much everytime I see him, he and his parents live in Hart, MI so I don't get to see him in between his sessions to see how much he has grown. I remember his first session where he was pretty fussy and just adjusting to life, now... that smile and easy going personality... he is an absolute joy! Thank you Wilcox family for letting me share in preserving your memories of this special little guy!

Oh, and the frog... Brady's dad, who just so happens to be a biology teacher (so we HAD to get a picture of the frog), found that during our session... it was the tiniest frog I have ever seen!

Danielle and Tommy E-session - Manchester, MI photographer

We had a great e-session last week at Sharon Mills park in Manchester! This was only the second time I have had the opportunity to photograph pets in a session and it was fun, but challenging! See that little guy on the right, yea he's a puppy... a GREAT DANE puppy. Probably the cutest thing puppy ever. And that's Rosco on the right, he is a gentle soul and just as sweet as can be... but truthfully, they were kind of like trying to photograph a couple of 2 year olds! BUSY and my agenda was not theirs lol. I have a new respect for pet photographers ;-)

Danielle and Tommy were great to work with and are both so easy going! Looking forward to their big day!

Franklin turns ONE! - Jackson, MI Photographer

Bebe' Collection kids are a pretty big deal around here in my small corner of the internet. I feel so connected and such a sense of pride for each of these kiddos I get to follow for the first year of their life. For those of you who are not familiar with Bebe' Collection (it's been awhile since I highlighted it) here are the details:

-$100 covers up to 4 sessions. Choose whichever months you like.
-Free 8x10 from each session
-20% off all prints

That's the very basics... contact us for details.

Franklin just finished up his last Bebe' Collection 12 month session! It's definitely bittersweet, but I know I will see him lots, so it's not too tough to see him "graduate" ;-)

It's been an incredible journey over this last year watching this fun loving little guy. He is his parents first baby and the joy he brings to them is such a treasure! Love you Frankie and family!

Here he is a year ago, May 2009 (although I have been known to do some hospital/birth sessions, this one, I just happened to take my camera when I went to meet him for the first time).

3 months, August 2009
6 months, November 2009
9 months, February 2010
12 months, May 2010 ONE YEAR OLD!!! Happy Birthday Franklin!!!

Best Gift Ever.

If you have spent any time around me, or here on my blog, you know families are near and dear to my heart. I thought this was the perfect place to share with all of you, a friend of mine who is in the process of adopting. I know this family will make such a wonderful home for a precious little one in their family. They have created a website that I think does a wonderful job of sharing their hearts to become parents. My hope is that we help extend the word of this deserving family who is searching for the child who is meant to become part of their family. If you know a birth mother/family looking for an incredible family, please be sure to send them to Lisa and Leon's site. You are the best my blog readers!

Lisa & Leon <----- click here to visit their site

And because I don't know if I can get your attention without a picture... here they are ;-)

What to Wear - Brother and Sister edition ;-)

All of these items can be found at (since the dumb town I live near recently closed it's Gap store) NOT cool! ;-)

Bebe' 2 Bus - CJ age 2! - Jackson, MI Children's Photographer

These Bebe' 2 Bus sessions always make me so proud of the commitment these families have made to consistently do photo sessions from ages 18 months to 5 years. This was CJ's 2nd session of his Bebe' 2 Bus Program, and he has DEFINITELY changed in the last few months. When we did his 18 month session last fall, he was walking, but not really into interacting with the camera. He just sort of did his own thing! This time... oh he interacted all right! He actually played and enjoyed himself and then... when he was done with me bugging him, he let me know in his own little way. He kinda errr REALLY yelled at me. He hasn't formed all the words yet, but I am pretty sure he told me, "get your camera out of my face so I can just play"!!! It was actually pretty comical and he had done an excellent job of letting me follow him around and try to chat with him! We got some wonderful stuff from his session and even included a few of his parents and his BEAUTIFUL sister Meris. Meris just graduated from Preschool and will be attending Kindergarten in the fall (tear). How do these kids grow so fast and where does the time go?!

Thank you Lacinski family! It's always a pleasure being with your family and watching the kiddos grow!

Miss E - Brooklyn, MI Children's Photographer

Do you ever make an assumption of what someone will look like when you speak with them on the phone, and then when you meet them in person they don't look anything like you would expect?! Miss E's mom told me about her the few times we spoke on the phone before her session and for some reason I had a vision of her being a little blonde blue eyed little gal. You can imagine my surprise when I was greeted by these STUNNING hazel/blueish eyes. Miss E has such a tender heart and is truly a mommas girl. I absolutely fell in love with her! Thank you R family! It was truly a pleasure!

Andrea & Matt E-session - Tecumseh, Michigan Photographer

Andrea and Matt.... I absolutely adore them together. I met them through their little guy Landon pictured above about a year ago. I met then within the first few days that Landon was born and it has been such an incredible journey over the last year watching their little family evolve. A & M are getting married this October and I am so excited to photograph their big day. They are such a great compliment to each other, both easy going and just super nice. Can't wait for October guys!!!

da boyz - Adrian, Michigan Children's photographer

These adorable (errr cool in your case Ryan ;-) guys are cousins... their grandma really wanted a session of her two favorite guys out at their beautiful property. The water in their pond was the most beautiful aqua blue and it just really made me feel inspired. Ryan who is just about 8, was AWESOME in front of the camera and actually seemed to enjoy himself. I was a bit nervous about his session because I had met him at a Mother Son Carnival event where I was the photographer, and he was a busy guy! I had my game face on though and Ryan completely surprised me! He was so so cool! I think he just really enjoys being outside. Thanks Ryan for totally rockin' your session! You were an absolute blast!

We can't go without mentioning my sweet favorite little Landon. He makes many appearances around here and we will be celebrating his 1st birthday here in the next few weeks... already??... tear. Where does the time go?
