Owen + Ashley
Owen and Ashley, two compassionate doctors and really good people, wanted to get married overlooking Lake Michigan, a favorite place of theirs. They crossed their fingers for good weather and were married on a gorgeous August day at Michillinda Lodge. They exchanged vows underneath blue skies with an equally blue lake behind them. The two nature-lovers were engaged at P. J. Hoffmaster while hiking along the dunes so we revisited this special park on their wedding day. And how can I not love a bride who mentioned her love of yard sales during her vows, changed into a dress from a thrift store for the reception and wore a pearl bracelet she found in a dumpster?!
May your marriage be full of more hikes, adventure and lots of found treasures along the way!

FAMILY // Ibrahim
An unplanned conflict made this the second attempt to photograph one of my favorite families. It also happened to be what I think was the hottest day of summer. The air was thick and the small air conditioner didn’t quite cut through the humidity of the large warehouse studio we used. But here’s the thing, the Ibrahims are pure at heart, never complain and look stunning even when I know they’re melting. Thank you for being you. I love the way you love each other in these photos.
FAMILY // Baby H.
Adam and Anne trusted me to photograph their wedding just last summer so to be asked again to photograph their newborn son was a bigger honor yet. Little did I know they already had a four-legged family! The best newborn sessions are when you’re finally home, away from the sterile hospital room and the visitors, and you’re settled into home with all the curiosity, messiness and love that comes with your first born.
FAMILY // Turning One
Turning one is a big deal, and this beautiful Lake Orion family wanted to document this special time in their son’s life. Thank you for letting me be a small part of your family’s milestones
