Happy 50th anniversary to my wonderful in-laws! We will be helping them celebrate this weekend.

Simple Portraits are Best
| |

From time to time I create so-called “simple” portraits, like this one below.  Usually they are for clients in need of a new professional headshot portrait — either for their website, business card, or even a networking site.  Sessions like … Read More

Maternity Portrait
| |

As promised, here is one of the maternity portraits that my little assistant helped me create in the studio.  I’ve not been one to keep track of which week or trimester I’m in this time around; that must be due … Read More

Toby {2014}
| |

I’m thinking it’s time for a haircut day over here at the Finn household. Long locks aside, I think this first set of portraits from 2014 is just adorable.

A Poem and a Picture…
| |

Blessed not just once, but now twice! A bundle of joy on the way, less than 9 months thrice. Big brother is beaming, and parents are proud; The cats might have known first, but alas they’ve no words.

Photographer in Training…
| |

Here are a few outtakes from a recent session. By outtakes, I mean impromptu snapshots of my littlest assistant…plus a portrait that he took of me to help test my lighting setup. Here’s the portrait he took of me:

Family Portrait Album

Now that the design is finished, I wanted to share this family portrait album with you! Typically I will also design a full color cover for portrait albums, which looks really gorgeous on display. This slideshow only highlights the album … Read More

Getting Bigger!

While we have been keeping up to date with my own toddler’s portraits, I haven’t had time to share them with you before now. So, here we are — this series was from a few weeks ago; it’s interesting to … Read More

Our Fall Family Portraits
| |

Well, I am sad to say these images were caught in the blog-void since this past fall.  Fortunately, the images were of my own family, so I don’t feel as bad.  This way, though, I can wish you a happy … Read More

Four Generation Family Portrait
| |

Over the holidays, and we managed to plan an impromptu family portrait. I was thrilled, as I always emphasize the importance of images like this to my clients, but haven’t been able to coordinate one for my own family since … Read More

Elizabeth + Eve
| |

This fall Elizabeth had her senior portraits done. We kept things pretty simple, and decided to forgo any studio portraits. So, we did location senior pictures at the Arb — which I think turned out fabulously. It’s hard to pick … Read More

Studio Senior Portraits
| |

There is something compelling about the simplicity of studio Senior portraits. While I love doing location portraits for senior photos, I also do enjoy staying in the studio and focusing more on the senior and her personality. Here are some … Read More

A’s One Year (Toddler!) Portraits

It is always amazing to see how quickly kids grow… Baby A. is no longer a little squish but is already officially a toddler! How much she has changed since we did her newborn portraits … her first holiday portrait … Read More

Senior Portraits :: Downtown Ann Arbor
| |

While I love going to new places for location senior portrait sessions, it is also nice to revisit old favorites. And for C’s session, we went to two places I have enjoyed doing portraits — the Arb and Graffiti Alley. … Read More

…More Child Portraits
| |

And here are the rest of the portraits from our session as promised! Since we’ve done these portraits, we have visited the barber shop, so it’s interesting to see him again with the curly locks instead of his big boy … Read More

Child Portrait :: One and a Half!
| |

Well, the little tyke is growing quickly. He’s somewhere around 1.5 years now, so I thought I should schedule him for a portrait session. We did some indoors and also ventured outdoors on one of the not-so-hot days this summer. … Read More

Baby A’s 9 Month Portraits

We did Baby A’s 9 month portraits just in time for Easter! Which necessitated the use of a cute Easter bunny… It’s amazing how much she’s grown since the holidays; she’s definitely not a tiny newborn anymore.

Baby A’s Five Month Portrait Session
| |

My niece came in for her five month portrait session the other day… and we ended up with some cute portraits! Here are a few favorites from her session; it’s amazing how quickly she’s grown.
