I’m not sure who would win between light sabering Captain America or light sabering Batman, but I do know that every single one of their images made me smile huge. Loooooooved working with this family!

That window…that glorious little nook of light on the upstairs floor has turned into a tradition for our photos. Newborn…six months…and now a year. I imagine little brother coming later this year will have his place in the nook as well. Or, maybe we’ll start a new tradition…with that fabulous black and white damask bed…
Hey, hey…I am the guest judge this week over at iheartfaces! So, if you haven’t entered an image for this week’s contest, get your hiney over there and enter your image before 9 pm CST. The theme this week is “white.” Love it!
Speaking of LOVING it, I absolutely adore this family and their entire session. I have photographed them several times and I kind of can’t get enough of these twinnies and their amazing mom and dad. I know one person can be photogenic, but is it possible for an entire family to be photogenic??
Is it weird that these images inspire me? Not because I think my images are awesome, sillies, but because of what this family allows me to do every time I photograph them. I photograph them knowing that I have complete freedom and support to capture them in the world as I see it.
I get it. My view point is sometimes a little distorted. Sometimes my images chop off tops of heads and cut limbs in half. Sometimes I post images that are out of focus. Sometimes I make Dad’s do weird things, like jump off canoes.
Sometimes I hold back for fear that people or clients won’t accept my style and I teeter on the side of Traditional Jean rather than Free Jean. But, I love these images because they are ME. They tell the story of this wonderful family that I am secretly thinking would be really fun to hang out with. They are THAT cool. Thank you, M family, for showing up with your cool clothes, awesome personalities, canoe and accessories, and most of all, for accepting and encouraging me to photograph you in my style…even though you have never said a word and didn’t even know it.
Our second photography workshop is being held on September 16th and 17th. We are SUPER excited to announce that we are working with Jodi from MCP Actions to give away a FREE SEAT at that workshop!! The details will be announced on her blog on July 26th and 27th, so be sure to stop by her blog on those dates!!
Whimsy is always more fun then business, so I’ll make it quick. We have opened up three more seats for our September workshop, so please contact me or Travis (or visit our workshop website) if you are interested. Also…for anyone out there interested in our September workshop (whether you have already signed up or not), we are excited to announce that we will be teaming up with Jodi from MCP Actions and will be giving away one free seat to our workshop, as well as some other goodies! We will be announcing sometime this month, so stay tuned for the details!!
Somewhere between my brother’s wedding in California and a busy work season here in Michigan last summer, I photographed Shannon Dodge and her family. Somewhere between the end of that busy season and me cleaning up my hard drives last week, I realized Shannon Dodge and her family had escaped my blog. So, I pulled them from an archival death and am bringing back the warmth and Dodge family beauty from last summer. I loved photographing this family. They are just…so…magazine-y.
These images make me super happy…not only because they scream warmth and happiness, but because I was finally able to connect with an internet friend who I was so excited to meet in person.
So here’s to beautiful families and those gorgeous Michigan summer days that we are all waiting very patiently for…
