Hunter | Racing Trading Cards 2017

What is more fun than small humans racing cars?  Small humans racing cars and having their own trading cards for autograph time at the track!  I offered to make Hunter his very own trading cards.  He came up with the second design here.  I preferred the first design, so I printed both for him.  I’ll be sure to update next week when the print delivery comes in!

On the TV | Media Interview | July 1, 2016

I was asked by Courtney Curtis from TV7&4’s Up North Live to answer some questions about the hot-button point of whether or not to host your wedding as “unplugged” or not.  Truth be told, it was terrifying! I spend so many hours behind a camera that I totally forget what it is like to be IN FRONT of the camera.  I used the experience to remind myself how each of my clients feel at sessions.

The funniest part of the whole experience is Courtney reassuring my reservations about how I did with, “you did great, you’re all trendy and sounded fine”.  After she left, my Boyfriend’s 12 year old, Xander, says, “I think that lady was confused.  I think she meant crafty, not trendy.  Cause trendy really isn’t you”.  True that, kid, true that!

Check it out!

Pictures are moments that can last a lifetime but are there certain moments where the cameras need to be put away?

Thanks to technology, basically everyone has a camera at their disposal and – especially on someone’s big day – you want to capture those moments so you don’t forget them.

But some say too much . . . continue reading click here

Castle Farms Not So Real Wedding

Jodi, Todd, and their daughters were the willing participants in the Castle Farms Not So Real Wedding event.  Jodi and Todd are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary this month and after hearing the stories about their real wedding years ago, they deserved this fantastic event!  They were so great to work with and be around! Days like this with lovely people like these, affirm my faith in long-lasting unions and make me proud to do my job.

This event was a bridal show alternative that showcased some of the best Preferred Service Providers from Castle Farms’ PSP list.  It showcased a vow renewal ceremony, delicious dinner, and dance party reception. Guests were able to have a full-sensory Castle Farms wedding experience; seeing, tasting, and hearing the wedding vendors in action!

Cherry Blossom Special

May Sales 2015 2

One of my favorite times of the year is the week of cherry blossoms. Depending on when (yes, in Michigan is a very uncertain WHEN) spring actually begins, determines when the cherry blossoms are going to be the best. In past years, right around the middle of May has been when the trees are in full bloom. However, if spring comes early, they will peak in the first half of the month, if spring comes late, they will peak in the last half of the month. This year I would like to plan ahead and see what we can get scheduled in for family photos, engagement sittings, and child/baby shoots. Sooooo, for the ENTIRE month of May I will be running a special package for every sitting we do in a cherry orchard!!
