A Vision Comes To Life | Ortonville, Mi. Avant Garde Photographer

Still digging up the archives, and I have a fun shoot to share from my weekend in Grand Haven last June.  I, along with the girls I was staying with, knew that we wanted to do a shoot that was a bit out of the norm for us.  So, my friend, Rhonda, and I went to work planning and getting things organized for a fun avant garde shoot.  We wanted to do something cool with a dark bird-like woman, and I must say that I am really happy with how it turned out.  Our vision never would have come to life if it hadn't been for our AMAZING makeup artist, Heather Spataro.  She did such a great job of listening to our requests, and making our vision come to life.  Between the awesome makeup, our talented model, Montana Bergy, and the super cool dress that Rhonda custom-made for the shoot, everything was perfect.  The only problem was, I don't have any experience with studio lighting.  Without the help of my photographer friends, whom I love, and was so happy to be able to shoot and spend time with, I am sure that my photos would have been a mess.  ; )

I had to at least take a few outside.  We had a lot of fun.  :)

Oh How I Wish..... | Ortonville, MI. Newborn Photographer

As I mentioned in my previous post, I will be sharing some sessions that I have been digging up from the 2012 archives.  Well, in my search for unblogged sessions, I came across this little cutie, who modeled for me, and a group of photographer friends, early last summer during a fun photo filled weekend in Grand Haven, MI.  It was beautiful out there, with the warm air, the sparkly blue water, and the picturesque boardwalk/pier filled with people walking, skateboarding, riding their bikes, and just taking in the view.  Sitting here reflecting on our time there makes me think, oh how I wish I were back in that moment, with the sun shining on my face, surrounded by great friends, and having a good time.

While we were in Grand Haven, we set up a handful of photo shoots, just for fun.  Handsome little Alex here, was the first of the group, and he set the precedent for the shoots to follow.  He was amazing.  He was so sleepy, and didn't stir a bit.  So much so, that we decided, (with the ok from Mom, of course) that we should get some shots of him on the beach, with it's fine tan sand, and it's glistening water.  Not being prepared for an on-the-fly beach shoot, we trudged through the sand, quickly filling our shoes with the stuff, but it was so worth it.  Alex rocked it out, and I got a rare chance to photograph a sweet newborn on a beautiful beach.

I had such a fun time hanging out with my ladies that weekend, and Alex only added to that enjoyment.  He will be turning one in the next few months, so I hope that this is a welcome look back at how tiny he was, and how much he has grown.  As for the other shoots of the weekend, keep your eye out for future posts.  We did some really fun stuff that you won't want to miss.  :)
