Sunflower Summer

Summer is my second favorite season, only surpassed by the fresh wonder of Spring. I love the life, all the green, blooming flowers, and wild joy of a hot day. This year I discovered a small sunflower field with thousands of smiling suns. 

Kristina and the Finch

This particular little gem is in Okemos, so super close to my studio. I found it while I was out running - SUPER awesome thing to stumble into! Naturally I had to drag my beautiful little sister out the next day for some photos. I just can't help myself. I live, eat, breath, and dream photography! 

Sunflower Love

While the sunflowers are still standing tall I am offering Mini Sessions! Anyone interested contact me here or call me at 517-672-9323 and we'll set up your shoot! 

Mime Time

When I was a senior in high school and student prank day was approaching I wanted to hire a mime to follow around our vice principle for the day and mock everything he did. Unfortunately at the time I had no luck finding a mime to so... It would have been so much fun!

I’ve always found mimes to be fascinating and highly entertaining. I love discovering street performers in my travels. Some of them have been quite brilliant at telling stories with only the use of their body motions.

This shoot is a part of my 52 Weeks of Photography project. It's a personal weekly challenge for myself to do something crazily creative and outside the box of normality that we are all trapped in. Life is meant to be lived, not spent in an endless tidal wave of monotonous chores, and we silently forget that every day of our lives unless something interesting comes along to spur a spark of insane difference strong enough to stir us from our zombie-like stroll of blah and Netflix. 

In their silence, mimes can create that spark. They are creative souls, and very expressive. People always stop to watch them, whether out of delighted entertainment or fearful curiosity.
