Ava's First Birthday

This sweet little girly turned one!  To celebrate, we took her out to a few fun spots around town.  Along with her brothers, we dressed up this little wonder in a bunch of fun outfits.  It turns out big brothers love balloons, but not so much with this sweet girl.

The Brincefield Family

I met up with this lovely family on a beautiful clear (and dry) fall day.  We've had a lot of rain, so it was great to be able to get a photo shoot in without a muddy mess. Here's a few things I love about this family:  They have a great blending of fun personalities.  This mom and dad are clearly in love and it spreads to their kiddos.  Very sweet.  Their family is adventurous, fun loving, giggly, and have a great sense of humor.  Thanks Brincefields for letting me be part of your afternoon.

Birthday session

So yesterday was my birthday.  On my way to a terrible dentist appointment I happened upon an amazing spot for a photo shoot.  I had heard about it from a friend some time ago, but was so excited to see the blaze of color from these trees that just happened to be in full glory as I drove by.  And as if providential, it was my birthday and thus I was able to twist the arms of my kiddos and get them to do a quick photo shoot as a present to me.  What a great gift to give yourself.  Here's the neat spot and the beautiful little wonders I call mine....

The Russell Family

What a beautiful fall afternoon we had this past weekend.  The golden shades of the leaves made for the perfect backdrop with this sweet family.  It was a super quick session but we were able to get a lot of these kiddos.  Enjoy these lovely smiles....

What an honor it was to be asked to photograph this sweet girl's baptism.  The ceremony was lovely and I was so glad to be part of their family's special day.  It's been fun to watch this young girl blossom into a gentle young lady.  Congratulations on your baptism!

Splish Splash, I was takin' a bath....

We enjoyed one of the last warm days of summer last week and captured a few of this little cutie in the tub.  What a sweetheart this little bathing beauty is.  She loved the bubbles!!!

Mackinac Island

So, I'm finally getting to editing my pictures from beautiful Michigan.  I'm starting with one of my favorite spots on earth.... Mackinac Island.   This little magical island is only accessible by ferry in late spring, summer and early fall.  The rest of the year Lake Huron freezes over, making passage to the island available to few that are willing to drive across the ice.  When you arrive on the island you soon realize the charm of a world without motor vehicles with transportation options being limited to walking, bicycles or horse drawn carriages.  Here are a few of my favorites from our time on Mackinac Island...
