Dexter Family Session: The Z. Family

 

It was the day after our first snowfall of the year! White flakes covered the ground, with the sunshine reflecting off of it in a way that makes Michiganders feel right at home.  Our scheduled "Fall" shoot turned into a winter wonderland, and it ended up being perfect! Being a young family ourselves, I love being able to capture this time for other young families - so much transition, change and excitement. For the Z's,  "GA" is going to be a big sister this Winter, and just turned TWO!  They have a new house to call home, and a new baby girl on the way. So much to be thankful for this year :) 

I can't wait to see GA fall into those big sister shoes. She's already a natural.

Her new thing was saying "SO CUTE!" while squeezing her cheeks. I LOVE how much personality she has!!

Ann Arbor Family Session: The R. Family

Mary and I struck up a conversation at the Hands On Museum while our boys played together (well, while my boy chanced hers around wanting to do everything that he did). We bonded over motherhood and the joy and challenges of working from home. A month later, I was able to meet her husband as well, as we met in late October at a nearby park to photograph their sweet, growing family. Ella and Nolan (I know, such GREAT names!!), were such a pleasure to photograph. Each in their own stages of development and exploration, yet both as curious as ever to discover the world around them.

After wearing the kiddos out at the park, we ventured back to their home to get some lifestyle images.

Ann Arbor Family Session: The H. Family

 

I may be biased, considering this blonde beauty is my niece...but this sweet girl is just the best. Her heart is full of gold, that sweet smile will light up any room, and her mother-hen personality is so fun (and adorable!) to watch {Insert endless stories of 'taking care' of my son, Sam}. I'm so blessed to be her aunt and watch her grow. Hannah's birthday is late October, so each Fall we spend some time documenting her milestone- this year. Number FOUR! (Going on 16 ;)

Matt, Emily and Hannah- we love you three to pieces! xoxox

Ann Arbor Family Session: The S. Family

A few weeks ago, I was driving down a back road near our home and pulled over on the side of the road. It was a PERFECT location. One that is hard to find this time of year, tucked away from traffic, untouched bright yellow leaves and a ground of leaves waiting to be jumped in and enjoyed. I knew it would be perfect for little miss Flora!

Thankfully, they trusted me when I suggested meeting on the side of a back road :) What a fun, gorgeous family to photograph! Sweet Flora was a bit camera shy, until we began racing down the road and getting excited about the big trackers passing by. I love seeing a child's personality comes out as they begin to get more comfortable and have fun, just as they would without any camera in sight. One thing is for sure, this little one LOVES her momma and daddy, what a blessed family of three!

Ann Arbor Family Session: The M. Family

I met this family of four a year and a half ago, when they welcomed baby Reese! Amazing how time flies! Quinn was a timid two year old, who is now a very proud, adorable and fearless big sister. At 18 months, Reese has grown into her sister's little mini. You can already see this sweet relationship blossoming between these two sisters. Their bouncing curls, huge smiles and personalities were a blast to capture this Fall.
