Another beautiful Michigan fall day! This type of weather is one of the reasons I love Michigan and this fall has been exceptional!

My fall schedule has been full of great family sessions and about a week ago I had the opportunity to photograph the G-Family at their beautiful home! We had a great time walking around their yard finding great locations for a few images. The boys kept it fun with Luciano adding his own comic relief to the afternoon! Here are just a few of my favorite images from their session:

Love this smile :) She just got her braces off last week!!

Thank you so much G-family for a wonderful afternoon! It was wonderful to meet all of you! I am excited for you to see all of the great images we captured...I will be in touch soon :) M

Those sweet little faces:)

Last week I had the most adorable little girls here to photograph! Tricia is 2 and and her little sister is 4 months. Tricia had a great time checking out the studio and all of the fun things to sit on & climb. She was also very helpful in making sure her little sister has her pacifier at all times! It was very sweet...of course we were able to grab some adorable expressions without the pacifier along the way too! Check out these eyes....Beautiful :)

And we were even able to grab a few smiles from big sister too! Love those blue eyes :)

I had a blast "playing" with these adorable sisters! Thanks so much mom & grandma for letting me spend a little time with them! I am excited for you to see all of the great images we capture from there session. I will be in touch again soon! M

Sun & Smiles!

Another amazing Michigan fall day! Could the weather get any better? No way! Last week I had so much fun photographing the S-Family! Talk about a fun session! It was a beautiful 75 degree Friday night and we just had fun walking and "playing" in the neighborhood (which also happens to be where I live too...I have wonderful neighbors :) The sun was AMAZING this time of day and I LOVE the beautiful golden glow we captured in their images! Here are just a few of my favorites.

Thank you so much S-Family for letting me photograph your beautiful family! I cannot wait for you to see all of your amazing images...I am not sure how you are going to choose your favorite...I can't :) I will be in touch again soon! M

It's good to be GREEN!

It is a good day to be a Spartan after an awesome win at the Big House over U of M this past weekend! It's good to be GREEN!

What a perfect day to post these wonderful images from my session with the M-Family! It was another beautiful Michigan fall day and they were all decked out in their Spartan gear ready to "play"! Of course we went to the campus of MSU to photograph :) I had so much fun walking around campus and finding some fun locations! We had to get a little creative when our original plan had to be changed...the Diamond Dash was going on and it was a little nutty with all the bridal couples scrambling to get their pictures taken at various MSU landmarks & finish the race...they were EVERYWHERE :) But we had a great time! The kids were awesome and we captured some fun pictures! Here are just few of my favorites from their session:

Thanks so much M-Family! It was wonderful to meet all of you & spend some time photographing your family! I am excited for you to see all of the great images we captured at your session and the fun holiday cards I designed! I will be in touch again soon! M

A Little Adventure

Aren't adventures fun!! I think so! So last week when I met Sophie & Miles for their session we went on a little adventure. Mom even brought the "power pellets" aka M&M's to keep up their strength. Awesome job mom!!

For a little while that afternoon we followed the paths to see all the different flowers, especially orange ones which is Miles favorite color, all the neat benches, trees & even a fountain! All along the way we captured some beautiful are just a few of my favorites:

Sophie ROCKED it! I could photograph that little girl all day.

I think this little smile was just before he was about to get an orange "power pellet"...he was getting excited :)

Thanks so much mom for letting me have such a fun adventure with Sophie & Miles! It was wonderful to see all of you! The kids were awesome and I had so much fun! And I am totally going to steal your "power pellet" idea for some of my other adventurers...if that is ok :) I am excited for you to see the rest of your images. I will be in touch soon! Melissa

Do you want a treat?

For all those dog lovers out know, if you say the word "treat" your dog will perk up it's ears & turn his head to look! Well I did lots of that from behind the camera as well as squeak toys, make funny sounds or just about anything crazy to get the attention of 3 beautiful sheepdogs simultaneously! Well it worked :) We captured some great images! My session with the H-Family was so much fun and the dogs were awesome (and of course their people were too :)

Here are just a few of my favorite family images from their session

Thank you so much for letting me come and photograph your wonderful family! I had so much fun seeing all of you! Hope Moose enjoyed his birthday celebration later that afternoon:) I will be in touch soon once all of your proof images are ready to view!
