Its kind of a surprise to me... Tecumseh, MI Photographer

It's kind of a surprise to me that this blog is still here, but it's also a surprise to me that I remember the password to log in to this blog to update it!

Thanks for hanging in there with me over the last few months. I have endured a BUSY busy busy season and am finally coming up for air! It was a successful season layered with much more balance than previous years, and in that balance my blog takes an immediate backseat. My kids deserve the time invested into them, rather than the time I used to spend keeping up the blog. So again, thank you again for your patience and understanding and I promise over the slower months to do a better job of popping in here to keep things... interesting... that might not be the right choice of words! Let's just go with keeping this a tad more UPDATED! ha!

I am shooting many more sessions in the studio now that the weather has changed. It's always such an adjustment for me every year to go from full blown outside sessions to back in the studio with artificial lighting and backdrops! It's no secret that I definitely prefer the outside, it provides a better place for kids to BE KIDS! Always something I pride my sessions on. I don't ask my kids (eh hmmm... err my stubborn son) to let me set him in front of a backdrop, and perform like it's nobody's business! It DOES not work well for him! But, over the last few years, I think I have figured out a way to make the best of living in Michigan and for me, it requires a little bit of  back drop in a room and kids "performing with smiles" in the studio. Stepping out of my comfort zone OFTEN leaves me with little gems like this little guy I got to meet on Saturday!

His name is Ajay, and he was a CHAMP in the studio! I absolutely love taking the time to play and giggle and be silly with these littles! Thank you so much to Ajay's family for giving my studio a try. He is SUCH a little gem! The last words out of his dad's mouth as they left the studio were, "When can we bring him back?!" As he said that, I walked away feeling like... "hmmm maybe I CAN make the most of winters in the studio!" Thank you for that validation Ajay's daddy!

Mr. & Mrs. Robert Irwin MARRIED! - Chelsea, MI Wedding Photographer

 It is always a challenge for me to choose a few photos from weddings to post and share here with the public. I keep asking myself how do I narrow it down to showcase the feel of SO many BEAUTIFUL and GENUINE moments that go into an amazing day like this one. Robert & Liz are such a special couple. They are such a breath of fresh air and I know they are well on their way to creating an amazing life together. Thank you Robert & Liz for allowing me to share in your special day. I wish you two the absolute best and look forward to hearing all about all the wonderful things the future has in store for you! Hugs!

Hoskins Video - Jackson, MI Photographer


Hoskins Family! - Jackson, MI Family Photographer

We had such a great time shooting this session! Blake & McKenna have grown used to photo shoots with me over the years, and this one was no exception. Just when I wonder how we will beat the last year's photos... we get the PERFECT day, the PERFECT setting, and the CUTEST faces :)

Thank you Hoskins Family for sharing your loyal friendship, fun times, and this life we all get to enjoy! xoxo

Lucas turns ONE! - Jackson, MI Family Photographer

Not sure how a year can pass by so quickly or how a tiny, helpless, perfect newborn can go to a toddler in what seems to happen SO fast. :) Watching families grow and change is such a rewarding part of this business. This adorable couple started their first session with an engagement session a few years ago, then a wedding, onto maternity, newborn, and already at 1 year! So proud of you Mizerik Family. It is such a joy to watch you all create a wonderful life TOGETHER! xoxo

Baby Jack! - Brooklyn, MI Newborn Photographer

I could share every single image from this session :) At 3 weeks old, I wasn't sure if we would get many sleepy newborn photos of baby Jack, but he charmed us the ENTIRE session and did just perfectly! I think his parents were just a little nervous, because it seemed Jack is a little fussy around the time of day we did his session, but we got lucky! Congratulations Eric & Lauren. Thank you for allowing me to share in this special time with you! I look forward to watching Jack grow and change over the next year!

Conant Kids! - Jackson, MI children's photographer

I had the HUGE honor of photographing this adorable family! Rachel (mom) contacted me a few weeks ago and mentioned that she was hoping to do some photos for her husband Jeff who is currently in the middle of a deployment. Father's Day was coming up and she knew she wanted to do something that would honor him and surprise him! 

I met up in downtown Jackson with the Conant kiddos, and we had a wonderful session! The kids got a chance to run, play, and just be together, all while we captured some fun shots! Rachel brought her husbands uniforms (he is currently wearing a different type for this deployment) so we had lots to work with! 

The shot you see of Chloe holding up her arms, she was breakin' it down to her favorite song, "The Farmer and The Dell"! So fun to capture kids being kids! 

Thank you Conant Family for yet another wonderful session. I know this is a challenging time for you all, but your love for your family always shines and carries you through! Here's hoping that Daddy makes it home QUICKLY! Hugs to you all, and thank you Jeff Conant for you service. We all appreciate the sacrifices you and your family make for our freedom.
