This past weekend, Steven and I took a mini vacation up north. We didn’t really have a set agenda, but wanted to drive through Gaylord, and maybe get to Traverse City. We managed to visit both places, as well as a few more! On Friday, we stopped by a studio sale to pick up some new props, and had dinner with some friends in Southeast Michigan … Read More
A few weeks ago, I was interviewed about my studio by a writer for Abec’s Small Business Review (Ann Arbor Edition). One of my friends got their hands on the latest September edition, and after discovering I was featured on the back page, dropped off a copy for me! Since the paper doesn’t automatically convert everything to their web edition, I thought I’d share a preview … Read More

Baby G finally arrived… and we finally got her into the studio for her newborn portraits. Since she was a couple weeks old already, Baby G was pretty active! We did manage to lure her halfway to sleeping… and ended up with some wonderful portraits of her awake and asleep. I absolutely *love* this portrait of her in the basket… what a cute smile on baby!

Here’s our 10 week ultrasound, which … Read More
Baby Peanut came to the studio a couple days after she was born… boy was she tiny! Her parents participated in the session too, and we created some adorable family portraits for them to enjoy. Peanut was a joy to have in the studio — she mostly slept, and aside from a feeding break, things were pretty uneventful! Since we did these portraits, Peanut has gained … Read More
Mike had his senior portraits done at our studio recently. While we kept things simple, Mike did decide to have me create senior portraits for him both in studio and outdoors. I love the dramatic edgy feel in a few of the studio portraits. And in the outdoors portraits, I love the bold color combination (yellow, blue, green). Plus, an added bonus is that this is … Read More
We planned a relaxed session at Angel’s home, to include her entire family: three people and four dogs. Bear was the oldest dog, and since he was going blind and deaf; we did a portrait of him being petted by “his” human.

On Sunday we went to the Humane Society of Huron Valley‘s adoption event — Kitty Palooza! There were more than 100 kittens ready to be adopted, and the Humane Society was offering adoption specials that were too good to pass up (that is, if you love cats and wanted an excuse to adopt!). How did I find out about it? One of my clients! (Thank you … Read More
Janice came to the studio to have me create a business portrait for her to use to promote her business. Janice is a wonderful conversationalist and I really enjoyed chatting with her about her family and learning about how to stage homes (i.e., when you hire a realtor, and you stage your home to help potential home buyers envision the space properly). For more information about … Read More
