It only barely feels like Spring here in Michigan, so, on behalf of all Midwesterners, I took a trip down to Texas to remind you all that warmth exists. 😉 My sister's family is always willing to take me in when I'm missing sunshine, and this visit we had perfect photoshoot weather (and even found… Continue reading Cremé Family
I love having the time to hang out with young families when shooting their photos. I think this blend of lifestyle and portrait is the perfect way to capture natural smiles and giggles from young ones that don't want to be told where to sit or stand for an hour! We've had an unexpectedly sunny… Continue reading Kerr Family: Lifestyle/Portrait Session
