Lauren & Griffin

I just love to photograph this little girl! She is always fired up...ready to pose, smile and just have fun! She was peeking at me under a bench we were using for her to lean on...I just love this cute :)

And little Griffin who has grown up so much since I saw him a year ago...but as cute as ever! It took him a little bit to get warmed up...a few fruit snacks and mom getting her digital camera out to get those smiles, but he was a trouper :) And poor little guy was still fighting off a cold. You'd never know it from this adorable smile!

I think this is my favorite from the day. Griffin was much happier sitting with mom as his personal chair....but I love this little look!

Love her!

Thanks so much mom for bringing Lauren & Griffin over to "play"....they were great! It was wonderful to see all of you! I think we captured a few you will love...these are only a few of my favorites! I will talk with you soon :) M

Winter Fun at Lake Michigan!

This was something I had been wanted to try for awhile...a winter beach scene at Lake Michigan! I have seen other photographers images of families in the beautiful white snow contrasting with the dark trees or even white birch trees...I love to look at those types of images. I have not seen any winter Lake Michigan family images and I just wanted to try something unique.

Well I found my perfect family to help me with my project...the S Family was AWESOME! The weather was not totally unbearable, but cold was after all February on Lake Michigan!!! They were such sports! I had so much fun and we captured some unique & fun images!

Here are just a few of my personal favorites:

Of course being on top of the hill the wind was a little crazy...but I just love the beautiful sand stretching out to the red lighthouse and of course the great expression on Aidrian's face :)

Thank you so much to the S Family! Thank you again for letting me "play" with all of you at the beach in February! I will send you the link once all of your images are up and ready to view! M

Bolly Fit Rocks!

Bolly Fit Rocks! I had the opportunity to see Bolly Fit creator Anuja Rajendra in action this February at one of her Ann Arbor classes. She is awesome! She is an amazing teacher, dancer and beautiful soul who also happens to be a close personal friend. I am so blessed :)

Check out a few of the images from her class:

In addition to keeping busy with Bolly Fit and being a
mom she even had time to work with Ice Dancing
Olympic Silver Medalists Meryl Davis & Charlie White
to help choreograph their dance program. Check it out!

Thanks so much Anuja for letting me visit to photograph you in action! You are amazing and so
talented! Lots of Love :) M


Love this little girl! And my goodness she has grown up so much in the past year! I remember from my own girls what a difference there was between age 2 and age 3...they seem so much more grown up at 3 years old. Something my good friend Micha told me several years ago when I was having one of those days with my then 1 year old & 3 year old ..."the days sometimes go slowly, but the years go fast." Wow this is so true!

I had SO MUCH FUN with Miss Tessa! She was fired up and ready to take some pictures when she arrived. She had her smiles and attitude ready! The little tutu and fairy wings were so cute! Here are just a few of my favorites from her session:

In spinning action!

Love the over the shoulder look! She is going to be a heartbreaker :)

Such a sweet heart :) Thanks M for letting me take pictures of your adorable little girl! I loved every minute of it! Talk soon :) M

Beautiful Babies & Adorable Kids

Family visiting from across the country, beautiful babies, cousins running around the house, Christmas trees, presents and the wonderful smells of the holidays...that was part of my experience on December 26th being there to photograph this wonderful family! I was at a clients' beautiful home (who also happens to be a dear friend of my mom's) to photograph her family and extended family during their holiday celebration.

These beautiful little girls are cousins!

More cousins hanging around for their Christmas holiday celebration! I love Christmas! Thank you so much Marlene for letting me be a part of your holidays!
