Carlson Family’s Spring Session

Hannah, Anders, and their kiddos are so dear to us. Fun fact: I used to play at the same violin studio as Hannah did in my childhood. I always wanted to be as good as she was. Fast forward to now and we have the joy of sharing the journey of motherhood and staying connected...

Spring Maternity Session

Her hand is resting on her belly. His hand is resting on top of hers.  She’s carried their baby boy for 36 weeks and he’ll be in their arms so soon. Whitney and Nick, the happy couple, smile together as the sun shines through the trees. It finally feels like spring, a new beginning. They...

Rachel Senior

I hardly post any senior photos, but this one is my sister! We wandered around University of Michigan’s Matthei Botanical Gardens this summer to take her senior portraits. She brought along a friend, which is always something I recommend, even if the person being photographed is my own family. Senior sessions are so fun! 

Gabri Patti: Personal Branding Session

Gabri Patti is a talented, beautiful, and witty entrepreneur. She writes, re-purposes and sells vintage clothing, and does so much more! She reached out to me about a personal branding session and we had so much fun! She had three fabulous vintage-inspired outfits and a vintage dress for her dress form, affectionately named Gladys. These...

Sypniewski Family

Cat Sypniewski reached out to me about a family session and it was such an amazingly fun session! We had the session at their beautiful home and in their backyard. The kids played, snuggled, and we got the whole family piled on the bed. Their children were so sweet! These images can only show you...

Regan Pinning

For a nurse, their pinning ceremony is almost more important than their graduation. They will receive their nurse’s pin and recite the Nightingale pledge before they begin to work as a nurse. My sister Emily recently graduated from nursing school and we celebrated by taking some fun photos, complete with a champagne pop!

Maddie & John

Maddie is one of my favorite people in the world! We’ve known each other forever, really! I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t know her. Her boyfriend John is the sweetest! He is such a gentleman and is so loving and tender with Maddie. We explored Detroit with them and had...

Benjamin Newborn

Meet the Benjamin family! Sarah and Peter Benjamin are both well known in the Pine Hills Camp community, but we also know them as fellow parishioners of Christ the King Catholic Church in Ann Arbor. They recently welcomed their second daughter Emily into the world. I was blessed to catch a glimpse into their home...

    Carlson Family

    The Carlson family is near and dear to my heart! I honestly can’t remember when I met Hannah. She was my violin-playing role model throughout elementary school, middle school, high school, and after that! Her husband Anders is sweet, easygoing, and funny. Their darling daughter Margot is adorable! We had a shoot at an apple...

      Christmas Family Session

      This beautiful lady reached out to me last year about a session with her daughters. We had a cozy in home shoot around Christmas-time. Her two goofy girls are just adorable, aren’t they? I love the little missing teeth smiles and matching outfits. Enjoy a few images from their session!
