Family Tradition | Grand Blanc, MI. Toddler Photographer

Meet Alana.  She is just a bundle of sweetness, and curiosity.  She came to me at the request of her grandmother, Mitzie, who had a very special heirloom that she wanted to have Alana photographed with.  It was a pretty little yellow dress that she had worn many years ago when she was a baby.  Since then, she also had her daughter, Lindsey, photographed in that same dress.  Now that Lindsey has her own daughter, grandma wanted to carry on the tradition with her grandbaby.  I felt honored and privileged when asked to take part in their family tradition by capturing some sweet images of Alana in the dress that has been passed down through the years.  She looked absolutely adorable in it......but my guess is, she would look adorable in ANYTHING!  I mean, look at that face!  It was a bit short, but that was no problem for Alana, who was channeling Shirley Temple with her little tooshy just barely hanging out of the bottom of the dress.  She couldn't have looked more beautiful in it.

Mitzie and Lindsey, thank you for allowing me to photograph your sweet baby girl.  I really enjoyed myself, and we got so many great shots.  I love the idea behind this beautiful tradition that you have created.  What a precious memory to make for your family.  I am grateful to have been even a small part of it.  I hope that your family tradition continues on throughout the years.  :)

A New Life | Proud Auntie, Photographer | Cloud Nine, MI

I want to share with you all, the beauty that entered the world early yesterday morning.  I found out on Tuesday afternoon that my sister was going in to the hospital to be induced with her first baby.  I was so excited, but they didn't get started as early as anticipated, so I waited at home for her to start progressing.  I could not fall asleep for the life of me.  Then, just as I had finally got into bed to try to really try to go to sleep, I received a call from my sister's fiancĂ©, saying that she had jumped to 7cm out of nowhere, so I went straight up to the hospital.  After much anticipation, and a little patience, (and I mean, VERY little patience.  I was REALLY ready to see her.  Lol), Addison Riley was born, at 6:43 in the morning.  She is absolute perfection from head to toe.  I am so excited for my sister, Ashley, and her fiancĂ©, Wes.  Addison will surely be an ever-bright light in their lives, and the lives of those around her.

Cousin Campout | Burton, MI. Infant and Toddler Photographer

I woke up Saturday morning to a beautiful warm summer day......a perfect day to photograph some happy babies. By the time we arrived at the session location, it was apparent that it was going to be much more than just "warm". It got sweaty-hot fast, and though all of the adults were very aware of the heat, by some miracle, the kids were unfazed by it.

I was so excited for this session because it is a returning client and friend. You might remember these girls from the hot air balloon shoot last year. They were so fun to work with then, and I couldn't wait to see how much they have grown now. I was also eager to meet the new addition to the family, Evan, who made his arrival soon after our previous session.

These adorable cousins were so funny to watch with their different personalities, and their ever-increasing mobility. Everybody got a bit of a workout keeping up with them all. Not to mention the workout that, the stupendously chivalrous, Mark got by helping me carry my many props through the park. (Thank you for that!!!!)

With some help from my baby wranglers, we got some beautiful images of these little cuties. Emily, it was so nice to see you and all of your family again. I can't wait to share more with you, but I hope this will tide you over for a little bit. ;)

......and, just because we ALL know that it's not always all sunshine and rainbows.........especially at the end of a hot summer session.  lol
This one cracks me up because we have three different emotions shining through.  We have Evan in the middle, just as happy as can be, with his skeptical sister, Emma, looking at him like he's crazy.  Then, we have sweet little Mae, who is just SOOO over it.  Lol.  They were all little troopers.  :)
