Franny and Eric . Engaged . Nordman Lake, Michigan

Franny and Eric wanted to incorporate two really important things into their engagement session. Their Vintage Honda Motorcycle and their dog Jack. Franny arranged for us to have the amazing setting of Nordman Lake Lodge in Dexter as our backdrop for the session and it was magic. The light, the love all that stuff was in abundance. It was fabulous getting to know Franny and Eric better and I got some cardio in chasing them around as well! They waited too long due to website issues for their gallery (with grace and patience) but I won’t make the world wait one moment longer to share in their smiles.

Amanda’s Botanical Garden Senior Photos

I met Amanda and her mother at Bridget and Lisa’s Wedding (Which I JUST realized I don’t think I blogged!!! ACK I’ll fix that soon) and this year we did her senior photos. She wanted something more artistic, something that represented her and we slew the images! She made my month and that’s a fact. Check out a FEW of my favorites from this amazing young woman’s session.

Molly and Matt get married . Colony Club . Detroit, MI

I’m super selfish, I have to admit it because I know part of the reason I don’t share as much as I should on the blog is that I hate to let the images go. I covet them. Matt is the brother of Kelly and officiated Kelly and Brandon’s wedding, which I photographed (see it’s awesomesauce here) and I met Matt and Molly and they are just as wonderful as they look. I couldn’t wait for the wedding, and then the day was, well, you’ll see, just perfect and I sent them the photos a few weeks ago but I selfishly kept them to myself… It’s like letting them go, and I hate choosing the “best” I love them all. I love every single laugh and each dance move caught. But I can’t keep something this glorious hidden, so I got it together and made a blog post.

A few things: Molly’s dress was amazing, I will get the maker I always forgot to ask. They read their own vows and they were beautiful. Their cat was there in pillow form and made it in a fair amount of photos and the aged whiskey barrel was there for guests to sign and to hold a photo of Molly’s father who was there in spirit. It was so great to see all the guests sign it and reminisce and talk about him as well. It really made him part of the day. Great dancers, lovely friends, and an amazing family. Thank you both for letting me be there to capture your wedding day.

Elana and Tim . Ann Arbor garden engagement.

Elana and Tim and their kids at the Botanical Gardens Arboretum Peony Garden is where we started. Their wedding is going to be in a few months at Matthaei Botanical Gardens and I know it will be just as pretty. Then a little tour just the bride and groom to be in the contemporary side of the University of Michigan Art Museum. I love getting to know the kids a bit better before the wedding and their parents get a bit of time on their own to practice dance moves and enjoy being engaged.

Stella’s Birthday . Spring . Ann Arbor, MI

They love photographs as much as I do, Stella and her mom I mean and I have had the honor to photograph this young lady since she was almost a year old.

Now she is a bit older and loves fashion. She styled herself (one of my favorites was the blue blouse in the first few photos, and it was from the most beautiful shop Muse Atelier and I was geeked to hear that because my friend Tanya Luz owns and runs Muse and it is absolutely the best. ) and we went for a little bit of attitude for a few with the movie star sunglasses and the casual updo. The cat wanted in on the action and since she worked so well as an accessory we made sure she was included <3

Someday I fully expect to be seeing Stella take on the fashion world!

These are my favorites!
