I've known Ashley for almost 10 years now - which is crazy to me when I think about it. She and her family are some of the kindest, most generous people I know and I am so grateful to them for so many reasons. Family is something that I value above almost all things and I'm happy to be able to claim Ashley as part of our family for the love that she has shown us over the past years.

Family sessions - my last post gave you a little peek at how to rock out your session, especially with small children. But what about those families with older "kids?" Let's be honest - when you're between the ages of 12-25 and your mom decides that NOW is the time for family photos, it's the worst. Yes, I said it. Family photos are the worst when you are not the one looking forward to them.

Hey everyone! The weather has gotten oh-so-nice and I'm itching to work with families and some super-cute kiddos! This year, I've gotten a little creative and put together a little camping set-up for some mini sessions at Dearborn Park in Holly. I still have plenty of openings!
Getting your photo taken can be a pretty awkward thing. Hey, I'm even pretty awkward taking them sometimes, if we're being honest. But there are some things that you can remember to rock out your session and leave feeling really good about it:

I had the honor to shoot a beautiful Spring wedding over the weekend. Weddings are big days - they are chaotic at times, loud, filled with so many people, and oftentimes stressful. Sometimes even family sessions can be the same - it just really depends on how everyone is feeling that day. At the end of every session (or wedding), I look back on the images from the day and find myself evaluating my performance: Did I offer enough poses? Did we cover everything the client had in mind? Did I...

If you don't already know - I apparently lead a pretty busy life. Now, this is completely and totally unwillingly...give me a couch, a good book and a glass of wine and I'll be set for days, no exaggeration. The things that bring me the most joy seemed to have taken a back seat to the daily grind and I'm just not ok with that anymore.

When Jordan asked me if I would shoot an engagement session for her and Eddie, I was so honored. Seriously, Jordan is probably one of the most put-together, stylish people I know and I was just thrilled that she wanted me for the job! Eddie and Jordan were so easy to work with and I couldn't be happier with the results! The day was perfect, the sun light was absolutely stunning that evening. We spent less than 30 minutes snapping these stunning photos and then headed back to my house and ate...

My brother-in-law recently proposed to Kati - who I'm so happy will be joining the Stern clan when they marry next August! I'm lucky enough to have found a friend in my future sister-in-law and even more lucky to have been able to capture some gorgeous images of this couple on Cranbrook's amazing campus. Fall colors, an unlimited amount of space to go adventuring and soft, golden light are my jam.

I was able to spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon in the little town of Holly with this family - can you believe that this family is even larger than this? Jon and Laurie have been blessed with 7 loving and gracious children (7!) - I know this because one of them happens to be one of my greatest friends. This little session welcomes Nala and Nina to the family - you know, those cuties in the kitty cat dresses and tights (which I totally wish came in my size!)? Yeah, those two. These two beauties...

It's crazy to think how fast kids grow up - having one of my own now, I certainly know the feeling of thinking that it was just yesterday that she was a little 5 pound bundle snuggled in my arms. I could tell that Zach's mother felt the same way as we were working our way through his senior session. Like most guys that I've encountered, Zach was not a fan of the idea of a photo session just for him, but he was a trooper and didn't complain once - not even when I demanded he hang goofily from...
