Jamie + Josh {MSU Horticulture Gardens}

Earlier this year i donated a gift certificate to a Cat Rescue Fundraiser here in Michigan. One day i got a phone call from Jamie. I get so excited to meet new people. And yet i still get nervous. I was nervous. I was hoping they couldn't tell.

We met at a Taco Bell and i followed them to these beautiful gardens at MSU. I had never been there so i was excited.

We just walked around and pointed out spots and snapped away. It was a really great and relaxed time. We got some great silly shots too. Just a great way to spend a morning.

Josh had a hard time not cracking up with the serious face HAHA!

The slippery bridge

                                We found this boy in the children's garden...So they read a book with him HAHA!

Thanks Jamie and Josh for such an great morning...And i surely hope i am spelling your names right!!

Sarah + Ben Wedding Weekend {South Haven}

This is by far my FAVORITE wedding yet. They both have such a great eye for something cool and fun. They are Quirky and Classic all at the same time. I just enjoyed our weekend together so much. I love to shoot people who love photos. They just seem to fall into place so easy. Very little direction needed. They had a wedding weekend full of their character. Complete with talk of Zombies, A Vintage Broach Bouquet, A Self Designed Dress, Fabulous green pants and lots of love and laughter!! Oh and a Rehearsal dinner at a Junk Store!!

HAHAHA! This cracked me up!
We had some really great light
Shopping check list: My Man

Sadie's Bridal Shower {Charlotte}

When i approached the door i was met by a Big Movie poster. It was a Breakfast at Tiffany's movie poster to be exact. I knew right then this was going to be awesome. And it was! All guests were dressed in black and pearls. Their were three maids in black and white also. Beautiful decor and just so much fun all around. Sadie looked Stunning! She gave out big plastic diamond rings and a strand of pearls to her guests...And me too! My kids instantly stole them the minute i walked in the door HAHA!

I am just so glad she had me there to join in this fabulous occasion...


Look for Sadie & Sam's Wedding photos in a few weeks!

Permission to laugh and an award won.

I have been so slow on the Blogging lately. I have been so crazy busy lately. Amanda Marie is really taking off lately so i have been trying to keep my nose to the grind. Lots of new products and some new changes coming. Time to really step away from the kind of student, kind of hobbyist into The For Real Photographer spot. I am scared.

So Amanda Marie won an award and i wanted to share it with you. Click here and check out page 9. A small town award won but a big time smile on my face.

I am just so thankful for all my great clients who voted for me.

Life seems to have taken a hold of me lately and i am go go go. Its a double edge sword for me. I need to stay busy to sustain a house and life for my family, yet i am gone and working a lot. This is why you will be seeing lots of changes being made. All for the better of my clients and my family. I will post all the fun new things soon.

With all of us being so busy...I think we forget to laugh. We forget to hug and say i love you. We forget to say thank you and show appreciation. I hope the photo below can help you laugh. It cracked me up. I give you permission to laugh. Just because.
