Sally and Chad (and the pupster too) are planning a Leelanau county wedding in July of this year.  We took some time to explore the beach and a few locations close to the wedding venue.  It was a glorious early May day!

These fine young gents and their folks were a blast!  We made swords out of cattails, got muddy, and had high hopes for froggin.  Mom is a seasoned pro (a.k.a. saint) with these boys; lets them get muddy and run though the fields and just watches them smile and enjoy each other.

James is one of my favorite photogenic little buddies!  Those suspenders are his trademark!

His momma and daddy are fabulous people too!  If you are looking for great handmade home designs, accents, and heirloom pieces, check out

Edward and Jackson are fabulously beautiful little guys.  So well behaved and happy!  It was my pleasure to spend time with them.

Their Momma, Cate, is a go-get-em leader that is heading up the project to bring a local Pets for Vets chapter to Traverse City.  If you are interested in the program, we are still looking for pet trainers, pet foster homes, and volunteers for various positions!  Hit me up here if you’d like more information!

Ethan may have been having a minor case of the “I’m three and just don’t want to play with you,” but we still managed to capture a few smiles!!  Such patient parents!  They were absolute pros!

This little smiley babe is turning one this week!  Turns out she really didn’t like the feel of grass on her bare feet.  I’m sure she’ll get to test out beach sand soon, let’s see how that texture works for her!

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!!
