We are always willing to volunteer our time for a good cause, especially one as wonderful as Diva Night at HOTplate. This great event raises money for Marquette Women’s Center and has a blast in the process!
It was our absolute pleasure to photograph John & Kaitlin. The more we talked and got to know them, the more we were able to capture the love they share. Even though there was a bitter chill in the air, these two stayed cozy warm together. We adore the playfullness and pure passion these two share. Shooting in beautiful Marquette, Michigan, it was the perfect winter wonderland for this stylish couple to strut-their-stuff. We can hardly hold our excitement for their big day!
I have to share something very special to me, my past client (and now dear friend) Shawnna lost her father very shortly after her wedding to cancer. 6 months later she posted this picture with such a beautiful message.
Not a wedding goes by that I don’t think of the importance of what I capture on each big day. So honored to have photographed this special moment, it will forever be one of my favorite photos. Xoxo.
Looking outside today one would never know that just a few short weeks ago there was snow. I long for those days–yes, hate me if you want but I love snow! I was approached by another local photographer, Bethany Vaughn, who wanted a unique family portrait session that included—WAIT FOR IT–a horse drawn sleigh. Instantly I knew this is something I wanted to photograph. Alex and I packed our gloves, put a few extra layers on, and got ready for something so amazing.
We arrived at Pond House Ponies to the most adorable horses and a gorgeous sleigh. I honestly could write a novel about all the lovely details of this shot, but I’d rather let the pictures tell the story.
Growing up I always dreamed of my career in life. I had a slew of ideas of what I thought I should be, ranging from a ballerina, a veterinarian, a firefighter and everything in between. Thankfully, my ballet dreams never got off the ground–especially since I’m the most clumsy person you’ll ever meet. Fate did, however, lead me in the direction I was meant to go.
I’ve always like to take pictures, in fact I had a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember. My wonderful little sisters used to let me dress them up, pose them, and take fun photos. Gosh, if they only knew how much they would be in front of the camera for years to come after that.
Fast forward to Christmas ’12 and they are still in front of the camera. Our family has gotten much bigger and for once I’m actually in a photo. Oh happy day! Here’s a glance at me and my six adorable younger sisters. It’s rare when we are all together, but it’s always fun when we are. I proud to be a photographer for them and for many other people–I’m also proud that my ballet dreams have passed. Xoxo.
