Meg + Matt // Engagement Session May 17, 2013 1 Fabulous Comment
Apple blossoms and the sweetest of couples. Meg and Matt are lovers of nature and of each other. A little rain only added to this perfect session. Adore these two to the moon and back!
Last weekend I took a little drive down to Chicago to (finally!) shoot Caitlin+Ryan’s engagement session and was quite happy that we had blue skies and warm weather! After having two prior dates on the schedule last fall and having completely terrible weather, we decided to hold off until after winter. And when we put this May date onto the calendar, we were hoping for exactly this…beautiful blossoms and pretty green leaves on the trees. Perfection!
Caitlin and Ryan are a truly dynamic couple. They love their city, love each other and are planning a beautiful wedding this year in Northern Michigan. As their wedding pictures will be in a more rustic setting, it seemed a natural choice that their engagement pictures should have a more urban vibe in the city the live in together. We walked around their Gold Coast neighborhood ending at the water.
Caitlin+Ryan - I can wait to see you both later this year for your wedding! I hope you enjoy your pretty preview!
MJ + Tim // Maternity Session May 7, 2013 1 Fabulous Comment
One of the most special things I get to do, beyond shooting a couple’s wedding, is the extended invitation to photograph life events of my clients past their wedding day. Take today in fact. I photographed a family session this afternoon with three little boys. I photographed that family’s very first maternity session. And now…three little ones!
But I digress.
MJ + Tim were married three years ago this month. And next month they will be welcoming their first little one into their family. Last week we traipsed through lush fields and orchards and even found a little canoe to paddle out on. MJ and Tim have a true place in my heart…I adore these two to the moon and back.
Celebrating Spring in the Sweetest Way // Styled Shoot with Natasha Ohlman May 6, 2013 Leave a Fabulous Comment
A few months ago, while working together for Shannon Gales pretty shoot for Vue Design, Natasha and I were chatting about spring. And lambs. And a little idea she had had for some time. Fast forward to a few weeks ago and it all came together…the sweetest of kids, tiny little lambs, chickens, an alpaca(!) and a generous family who let us roam their property.
Natasha Ohlman does event styling and put together this adorable concept. I asked her what her inspiration was behind this shoot. Her answer “Well I wanted to do this shoot about 17 years ago when Sachel (my older son) was 4 years old an wouldn’t you know I got another little boy:). I wanted it to have an elegant look but with the sweetness that comes with new life, spring and the innocence of childhood.” Mission accomplished friend!
