Ann Arbor Family Photographer: Fall is HERE!

Stopping in to share a snapshot from a session this past weekend. Clients tend to have a lot of questions about locations - but we can make sooo many different places look amazing! This backdrop is actually a large tree at their neighbors home, across the street. It’s perfect (as are their expressions :)!

Happy Fall, Y’all!! (I’ll be running on some form of caffeine over the next six weeks, but it’s hard not to love it!!)

Ann Arbor Family Photographer: The M. Family

If you scroll through this blog, you’ll quickly realize that I fall a bit short on posting full shoots. A lot of sneak peeks…and then more sneak peeks…because, let’s face it, it’s easy to get into the grind (head down, coffee in hand) with editing, shooting, speaking with clients, designing albums, posting to facebook/Instagram/all the things, bookkeeping, etc…and then forget to actually share an entire session. I’m 100% guilty of this, fully admit it! There’s also another side, in which, some families ask not to be broadcasted across the internet. Understandably so, and I want to respect my clients wishes.

Okay, now that my Tuesday rambling is over, I popped on to share some favorites from a session last month. (Don’t judge me, read above ;)


I first met Brett and Deb in college! Brett and my husband, Kyle, were roommates. I’m sure that I still have a debt to pay to Brett for being woken up early many mornings from Skype calls while I was in South Africa and Uganda. I still remember him poking his head on the screen making sure to say hello and check in :) (did I just date myself with SKYPE?!) Fast forward many years, they live in a town nearby, with two beautiful children! We have the privilege of seeing them a lot during football season (so last year we really missed their faces while we were in Ohio!). If it’s not obvious from the images, these two will brighten anyone’s day. They compliment one another in incredible ways, they encourage and love anyone in their path, and we are honored to call them our friends. So of course, when Deb asked about pictures, the answer was a resounding YES! Let’s do it!
