Ooooooh Mady. Lovely, beautiful, carefree Mady. This girl marches to the beat of her own drum and does it with confidence and kindness. Travis and I were excited to work with her for the new video fusion product we’ll be offering high school seniors starting this summer. She was perfect for our vision. My little hippie muse :)
Kousa. Yeah, he’s as cool as his name sounds. Had such a great time with him at Eastern Market in Detroit. Oh, and TALENT oozing from his pores. Who doesn’t love a guy who can play the sax?!?!?
It was an internet friendship that took way too long to become a real friendship. Spending a week in Australia with Leanne was like reuniting with a friend that I’ve known forever. Her heart and kindness will never be forgotten and I know we’ll cross paths again someday. Thank goodness for the internet…so you know…we can continue our real friendship from afar. Leanne’s beautiful family…
…and her amazing house…
It’s hard to believe our year of exploring the world is coming to an end in a few months. It has truly been an amazing experience and we will come home with a lifetime of memories. However, we are super excited to get back to normalcy, routine, friends, family, and beautiful MICHIGAN!

The session will consist of a 30-45 minute session, 20 digital images, and an 8×8 20 page hard cover album. How to win one of these sessions? You can win one of two ways, and feel free to enter both for more chances to win.

Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and I hope to see you this year!!
I just arrived in Australia and I am beyond excited to be in the great Down Under! It’s been on my bucket list for, ummm, my whole life. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to share the schtuff I know with photographers who will be joining me at my workshop this week and am truly grateful for the support from the companies that help my business run smoothly. You can find out more about each of them by clicking on the logo.

Terrell and Lauren were planning a vacation to Thailand, and when she contacted us, somehow our schedules miraculously aligned. What a fantastic day Travis and I spent with these two lovey loversons. Within a few hours, we had documented their special connection, the fun they have together, the beautiful scenery and then nightlife of Thailand, the food (ohhhhhh, the food), and their love of backpacking. We loved these two and wish them so much love and happiness on the rest of their journeys!

A bit more Tuscan magic coming your way. Mike and Kiley’s “pre-wedding” shoot of love, wine, beautiful scenery, and grapes. Lots of grapes…
This family gave me images that make me smile huge today. Happy fall, Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Black Friday, and Happy everything else that is happening this week :)
Let’s be honest. We all know by now that I wayyyyyy over post on weddings. You just keep scrolling and scrolling and the images just keep coming and coming. But each wedding is a such a unique and special story, and the images I post are an attempt to visually tell the story of the beauty, details, and personality of each wedding.
Speaking of beauty and personality, let’s get to Aaron and Meghan. I am so honored to work with the O’Connell family again and Aaron and Meghan are OBVIOUSLY beautiful, but they are just as cool as they are pretty. Huge congratulations to the newlyweds!! I love you guys!

Big families? Pshhhhh, I got this. Especially when the mama is a beautiful and is a photographer herself, the dad is chill and awesome, and the kids are super cooperative and just want to play for my camera. I really love this family.
Just in case you were wondering if they were fun and like to have a good time together…
