Miss R was here and was a dream to photograph. She has perfect features and I think mom likes her….a little bit. She was even a little bit older than most newborns I photograph but she handled the session like a pro. Miss R was here to get her dream catcher portrait and since she is a rainbow baby, I added a little extra something in her image. I had so much fun photographing her and could have done that all day. She even looked a little bit different the week later after her session! It goes so fast!! Enjoy!
Mr R was here with his family but it was time for his session with his dad. I kinda think they like each other….a LOT! R is a little bundle of smiles and funny faces. He looks like a combination of his sister and brother and couldn’t be more cute! I have photographed him and his siblings since they were tiny and I have grown to love this family like my own. Enjoy!
We vacationed in Michigan this year and there was cool weather, cold lake water, two people with colds, and a limited amount of sunshine. But…we had fun despite these things. Someone that shall remain nameless, (L) insisted that she could stand the water that we found out later was a “balmy 69 degrees”. My husband shivered along with my granddaughter but they played in it just the same. The cold left one person and traveled to another and then that one decided that her swimming time was done. We still got to enjoy some shopping, family time and beach time. There were petoskey stones to find and sand that needed to be embedded in our clothing, shoes and everything where else so that we find it for months to come. We got to spend some beach time with our nephew and his family, then another set of family members arrived right before we had to leave but the last evening cookout was a huge success. S’mores are a favorite and there was no shortage of those cooked over an open fire on the beach. i didn’t work too hard at getting images but instead enjoyed what was going on. I think I was rebelling that L had a cold and looked like it and didn’t feel like our usual Michigan session. LOL! We went to the firework display over the harbor that is always a fun time. There was a group of people remembering a loved one with the paper lanterns that were lit and released over the beach. It was so peaceful to watch them float away. There was a drone that was flying around and captured the event of the lanterns being released….we could tell that he recorded it and was going to give the recording to the people that were there….a sky-eye view of them releasing the lanterns. We went to an alpaca farm and got to pet some of the babies and a friendly adult alpaca that was more than happy to eat from their hands. Anyway, I did get a few so enjoy!
Be still my heart! Mr B was here with his grins, charm and silliness. I am one lucky girl to know him, his brother and his parents. He absolutely made my day when he hugged me and said “I love you, Miss Julie”. Sigh…..so sweet! He is one energetic boy and I would not have it any other way. We went outside for a few images after having made some indoors in the studio and he was on the go! I love following him and freezing some time for mom in a few portraits that show who he is. Can life get any better?! Enjoy!
Miss H has stolen her daddy’s heart….and her mommy’s…and her grandparent’s. She has some camouflage outfits in her future if her dad has anything to do with it and her mom will make sure it is pink. All I know is that she is a real life doll and I got to photograph her newborn session. Lucky me!! She was a real model for me and I got to capture some of her precious expressions and her sweetness. Enjoy!
