recent musings:

I know, I know. The majority of my engagement sessions this past summer were shot at Stoney Creek Metro Park. I can’t help that this park is the perfect location! Stephanie and Dean wanted romantic, outdoorsy vibes on their shoot so where better to go than Stoney Creek? At their pre-session consultation, Stephanie told me […]

They love to play cards. Their bedtime is 9 p.m. They love music about love, exploring little towns, and hanging out in coffee shops. These are my kinda people. Chad and Eileen were such a pleasure to work with. Not only do we have a lot in common (as mentioned above), but I love a […]

You know what they say…there’s a first time for everything. Well, this was the first time I’ve ever literally gotten ants in my pants on a photoshoot. And if I had the chance to do it all again I would say, “heck yes!!”   “I knew I liked them the second they told me their […]

These two are such happy, funny, positive people and I genuinely had so much fun with them on their shoot!

It rained. And it rained a lot. On the day of their scheduled shoot, I texted Matt and Olivia to see if they wanted to reschedule. They decided to risk the rain, so I packed up my umbrellas and we all headed out to Stoney Creek Metro Park.   I’m so thankful they chose to […]

Megan and Steve have the sweetest ring origin story I’ve ever heard. Steve custom designed Megan’s engagement ring with a blue stone that came from a ring grandmother gave her in high school. Surrounding the blue stone, are gems from Megan’s mother’s wedding ring. If that’s not the sweetest thing you’ve ever heard then I […]

A family heirloom ring. A necklace he picked out especially for her back when they were just dating. The perfect white dress her grandma helped her choose. Their favorite, memory-filled vacation spot. Meaghan and Sean put so much thought into this sweet, sentimental, engagement session at Port Huron and I had so much fun shooting […]

Chloe and I became best friends back in middle school and we have always been partners in crime. We did everything together.

Chloe went to college in Pennsylvania […]

As I’m sure you can tell just from the photos below, this is one contagiously in love couple. Geena and Mitch go together better than Leslie Knope and Ben Wyatt. Her laugh is so infectious, he is the perfect fiancé, and I had so much fun with them.   Originally Michiganders themselves, Mitch and Geena […]
