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.

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.

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

Creatively yours,
