Summer Lovin

Last summer I had the honor of covering this b e a utiful wedding in a quaint little beach town north of New Buffalo. It’s no secret that I love an outdoor wedding, and this wedding displayed the glory of the occasion in all it’s warm breezes, cascades of laughter, and a high level of…

  High 60’s. Partly sunny. Old Mission Peninsula, MI. Grand Traverse Bay. Forty-five of their closest friends and family. A mother and her daughter. A man becoming husband and father. A ceremony and cocktail hour overlooking the bay. A farm to table dinner. Sweet morsels hand made at a local bakery. No dancing. No DJ. Just…

$50 GET REAL mini-sessions

Often I find myself in places and times and I say to myself, “Self, this would be SUCH a perfect time for a photo session.” Some incredible sunrise, or a fog that has rolled in over Lake Michigan; there are these displays of God’s awesome creation that just set your heart on fire with His majesty…

“Let’s go to a greenhouse”, she said. Well played, Sara. Well played. 4 weeks and counting!  ❤

Spring + Summer Package

They fit my style well, and are a GREAT way to get your pictures where they can be enjoyed, rather than stuck on a computer somewhere. I’ll design them, so no work for you. Just…

Juli + Ron

As we enter into a season of new marriage bonds and joyful festivities, I was recalling this special day back in 2013. Right now, this beautiful couple are a few months from having their first child. Life, in all its stages, is a beautiful thing.

Once upon a time, I took a few pictures for work. Then I took too many pictures of my kids. Then one day, this adorable couple hired me for one of my first paid projects, their courthouse wedding. We scurried around this new and simple building, desperate for anything that resembled character, and I soon realized that it…

Sometimes it’s cold, and windy, and snowy, and the last thing you think anyone will be up for is a photo shoot. Time and time again, when people get brave and face the elements, we’re rewarded with beauty and enchantment. Brave the elements, people, brave the elements! 🙂

Abby + Justin Isacson

I have a cousin. Her name is Abigail. She is a ray of sunshine. She lived with us during her freshman year in college, and we tried to bribe her to stay much MUCH longer. She’s the kind of girl, pure, lovely, and sweet…that girl that you think will never be able to find a…
