Life happens at lightning speed.  Have you been intentional about making memories with your loved ones?  Because, let's face it. They're not going to remember the stuff you got them so much as the things you did with them.  The photos you have hanging on the wall, or displayed in albums -- those will be the images that bring forth the wellsprings of their memories.

Maybe you're here because you want photos to display in your home.  To learn more about scheduling a portrait session for yourself, your family, or your children, please contact me or call 734-424-0472.  

If you want weekly blog updates via email so you can have help being intentional about making memories, just type your email address in the box on my sidebar.

Creatively yours,

Portrait of Dexter Community Orchestra

posted in: Photography | 0

The Dexter Community Orchestra recently asked me to create an updated orchestral portrait for them. I did one some years back during a concert (or maybe it was before). This time, we didn’t have much time at all to do the portrait of the orchestra. I created these photos in about five minutes, during their intermission.  When we did this photo, I was many rows back … Read More

Senior Portrait Outdoors at the Studio :: Ian

posted in: Photography | 0

Ian came to the studio last week for his senior portrait session.  We did some portraits inside the studio, including the obligatory high school yearbook photos.  In case you’re not up to speed with senior yearbook requirements, it really varies across the board.  Some high schools will take anything, or allow any background as long as no hands or props are showing.  Other high schools, including … Read More

Senior Boy Portrait Session (in the studio)

Sometimes my clients contact me looking for something simple and in studio.  Maybe it’s because the yearbook requirements dictate a formal studio setting for the portraits, or maybe it’s just because simple can be easier.  Whatever the reason, I’m always happy to create timeless portraits like the ones we created for this senior boy’s portrait session.  So, without further ado, enjoy these portraits I created for … Read More

Monarch Caterpillars make their chrysalises!

posted in: Notes | 0

The next big step for any Monarch caterpillar is to pupate!  That’s when it turns from a caterpillar into a chrysalis.  I was blessed to be around when one of the caterpillars pupated, but he was sneaky so I only managed to capture a before and after rather than a “during” …maybe next time.  (if you missed my earlier posts, you can see the caterpillars when … Read More
