– Family Sessions –

I couldn’t have ordered a more perfect temperature or light for this family beach session. This family has been BUSY! They welcomed baby Jacob in March and big sister Rosie is stepping up into her role rather well…as well as an almost two-year-old can! 🙂 As hard as it is to convince a toddler to be involved in pictures, this session turned out amazing.  Although Rosie did give her mama a heart attack running in and out of the water in her gorgeous Mon Petit shoes.

Beautiful family, beautiful session.

The Leslie Family

2017 was off to a GREAT start with this family and their lifestyle session! I totally hit the jackpot with them. Gorgeous family, sweet children, and a bonus GORGEOUS home as a backdrop! Not a bad way to spend a Saturday.

Highlights for me were:

Adrianna and her lovey blankie

(parents, you need to capture these memories…they may abandon their favorite lovie someday!)

Julianna with her wide eyes watching bubbles

Family pup licking Julianna’s face

Not  one, but two beautifully backlit windows…a photographer’s dream

Thank you, Leslie family, for kicking my year off right, with a fun session!

Family Sessions 2016

 

This session was C-O-L-D, but I am still so glad we didn’t give in to mother nature and cancel! By mid-November in Michigan, most of those pretty autumn leaves have already fallen, so outdoor shoots can feel drab. We decided we’d head to Eastern Market for a more urban shoot. This location NEVER disappoints, (and not just for sessions. If you’ve never been, GOOOO!) Anyhow, we were able to grab a great variety of images with both the murals as a colorful backdrop and the inside empty market shed. I love the contrast. Thanks to this family for a super fun, easy, (cold), and beautiful session. And props to dad for thinking of this as his gift to his wife!! Hey guys, take note!! A gallery of images of your family is priceless and would make any mom so happy!

xoxo

Wizard of Oz Kids

Dorothy, The Tin Man, and a Tornado

2016

For Halloween this year, I decided it was time we had a family costume. One of my favorite movies of all time is The Wizard of Oz. My kids have never sees it, so strategically I had them watch it in September, hoping they’d like it. I planned to inundate them with the movie a lot..whatever was necessary. To my surprise, they liked it immediately…(I may have been in tears). My son William was so taken with the tornado in the movie! The entire movie he just kept asking when the tornado was coming back! He spent the next few weeks talking about tornados. We checked out tornado books from the library even. Game on, I knew as a family we would be:

The Wicked Witch of the West – me…. fair enough

The Wizard – Dada

Dorothy – Eliza

Tin Man – Henry

a tornado – William 🙂

I made a compromise with the boys that we would wear our family costume for an early October event and then for Halloween trick-or-treating they could choose whatever superhero they were feeling that day. The event we attended was awesome, at Greenfield Village in Dearborn, MI. However, the tornado costume didn’t lend way to William’s walking. He immediately fell over! So cute though. We carried that homemade tornado costume around all night while he collected treats. Needless to say I have very few pictures of the family that night so I knew I had to document the kids in their adorable outfits in a well-lit, candy-free location, for my own memories (and to justify costume costs and my own time spent on Mr. tornado’s costume).

If you’re looking for an awesome etsy vendor for a handmade costume, I bought the Dorothy dress from 4yourlittlestar

Happy Halloween!

Kohl Cousins 2016

Another year, another cousin added! This session was leaps and bounds easier than last year, even with a two-year-old. I guess the key is that the two-year-old is not my own child! The kids were GREAT! A little reasoning behind the location Eastern Market….These cousins’ great grandfather started his business in Detroit and moved to Eastern Market in 1939 (Atlas Importing Company). So it seemed fitting that this was the location of this year’s cousin session, aka, YiaYia’s birthday gift…4th year running. I loved using the market after hours. Empty and expansive, with just these 6 voices to ring throughout. Such great light and backdrop. The opposite of the empty shed was the walk to the amazing graffiti on a nearby street wall. So much color and fun! As always, a bribe was well planned…this year, cookies and milk!

When I first loaded these images and scrolled through, I got continually more and more giddy at how well they turned out. I could’ve busted out of my skin with happiness seeing these cousins and their raw, unfiltered excitement with just being with each other. The love they share is beautiful…I wish I could bottle it, mass produce, and share it with the world…wouldn’t that be an amazing thing?

So happy that my little ones and nephews were perfect participants. We came away with more usable images (and without editing images together) than I could’ve imagines. YiaYia will be thrilled with her pictures this year and will display them proudly!
