{Well, Hello!} Eddie & Amy + Leo too

March 28th, 2012

Meet Leo, the cutest golden-doodle I have ever met.  He almost doesn’t seem real, he is so perfectly adorable. Eddie and Amy agree that he is so wonderful that they wanted pictures to document him as a puppy because we all know that they grow up so quick.  So, we played around their new apartment, […]

Meet Leo, the cutest golden-doodle I have ever met.  He almost doesn’t seem real, he is so perfectly adorable. Eddie and Amy agree that he is so wonderful that they wanted pictures to document him as a puppy because we all know that they grow up so quick.  So, we played around their new apartment, fed him treats, took him outside for a walk, and finally by the time we got to the clock tower at The Hilton, he was exhausted. He sat quite perfectly still for his portrait 🙂  I loved during this shoot how Eddie continuously kept gazing at Amy and saying how pretty she was.  Sweet Amy would smile softly and I have so many pictures of this: Eddie admiring his soon to be bride and Amy smiling her pretty smile. You guys are so very wonderful together and I wish you the best always…

{Evelyn}Little miss blue eyes

March 23rd, 2012

You would never EVER be able to tell that Evelyn wasn’t feeling her best and getting her picture taken was not her favorite on this day.  Evelyn was such a sweet subject!  Her blue eyes were so pretty, I couldn’t turn any of the images to black and white.  What a precious little girl!  Love […]

{Aubry} You are Sweet & Dainty

March 21st, 2012

A few pictures from a session with a dainty baby girl who just turned 6 months. How I love this age! We had her in a soft pink, ruffly dress to begin with and she wanted nothing to do with it! She hated her ruffles, and though we were imaging her sitting there, with a […]

A few pictures from a session with a dainty baby girl who just turned 6 months. How I love this age! We had her in a soft pink, ruffly dress to begin with and she wanted nothing to do with it! She hated her ruffles, and though we were imaging her sitting there, with a big smile on her face…Aubry had a different plan.  However, if you put mom or dad with her then she was one happy baby. I love the one of her lying down with mom above her.  Such sweet looks and the daintiest of expressions. Thank you Karen and Rick for working up a sweat that day!

Dale brings such positivity to each and every wedding.  Always happy and always smiling.  JEM gets so excited when we find out we’re working with Dale.  Not only does it mean a great dinner time, but it also means we get to spot him doing things like this… videographing and ab workout in one!

Dale being the professional that he is.  These were the only serious images we could find of Dale.

He even puts his life on the line for that impromptu moment…

And our most favorite, Dale tackling the tall grasses!

Dale, we always have a blast working with you!

{If I was a Flower Growing Wild and Free…} Nate and Natalie

March 20th, 2012

All I’d want is for you to be my sweet honey bee. Nate and Natalie, what to say? Happy tears as you said your wedding vows, listened to a poem being read, walked down an aisle married, kissed a hand, hugged those you loved, and so many more times that eyes swelled with overwhelming happiness. This blog […]

All I’d want is for you to be my sweet honey bee.

Nate and Natalie, what to say? Happy tears as you said your wedding vows, listened to a poem being read, walked down an aisle married, kissed a hand, hugged those you loved, and so many more times that eyes swelled with overwhelming happiness. This blog is taking me forever to write because I have so much to share, and I want to share it in just the right way. Nate. O Nate. You have grown into someone that I love more than I did a decade ago. When I see you with Natalie, and the way you treat her, the way you simply kiss her randomly on the forehead or hand, the way you describe her and the way that you cherish her, it’s obvious how much you love her.  And Natalie you are truly the snow to Nathan’s winter. We couldn’t have asked for a more lovely you.

Finally we have an official sneek peak. F.I.N.A.L.L.Y.   You would think that my own family would get special treatment?  Nate started sending me indescribable texts outlying the consequences if I didn’t get his wedding pictures up. This is only a joke if you think it is.  You see, I never know when my brother is joking. He has convinced me of many things in the past, many so absurd that I have said, just wait till you cry wolf.  When he proposed to Natalie over the summer, it took me a good 5 minutes to believe that he truly did propose andshe said YES.  But for as much as Nate tells ‘jokes’ he also wears his emotions on his sleeve.  It runs in the family, and apparently in Natalie’s family too.

This past winter has been to some, wonderful, but to others a major let down. I for one, love the snow.  Nate and Natalie got married at the end of January, when there was actually a fresh layer of snow from a storm that night before. It set the seen for a beautiful winter wedding at Walden Woods, near Ann Arbor, MI.  This setting was perfect and fit their personalities to a T. Both, loving the outdoors, they collected pine cones and milk-thistle  from all over Michigan to use as their centerpieces, they gave away baby trees for all of the guests, and they reused wine corks for their place card holders.  Peggy, Natalie’s mom made shawls for the girls and also Natalie’s veil…infact these were finished day of! I enjoy the small things of a wedding that add up to make it so personal.  Also, I couldn’t have photographed this wedding without Colleen Barrett of Blue Tree Photography, whom many of these pictures were taken by her. Coll….thank you for helping  me ‘let go’ so I could dance this night away.

Nate and Natalie, I love you both….here’s to a lifetime of happiness!
