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.

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!

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! 

52 Weeks: Beginning

This year I have begun a 52 weeks project. Deciding on all the weekly themes was a bit crazy and very fun. I wrote down all the ideas, concepts, and themes that I've wanted to do but not actually gotten around to doing, then cut the list into individual pieces with an idea on each. After that I retrieved a top hat from the top shelf in my studio, dropped what was now essentially a pile of confetti into it, and shook it all up. To pick the final order I just drew out random papers, and turned them into a lovely little final list. Here's the result! 

52 Weeks

Week one I made a bit more interesting than a normal self portrait. In the middle of the night I did a ton of photos of myself by lamp light with a little fill flash, flipping my hair about to make it look like it was floating. Afterwards came photoshop, some fish, and voila! I'm a mermaid. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Week two was flight. I love flying and levitation images. I have wanted to do one for a while, but other things kept getting in the way. I needed to escape from that constant barrage of things that distract me, which is super hard to do! Anyone else want to visit Neverland with me? I hear it's great this time of year...

Congrats to the Fedewas!

Congratulations to Becca and Craig!

This past fall I did a maternity photo session with them. It was fantastic! Seeing the glow in a beautiful woman when she’s excited and nervous and expecting her first little bundle of love is amazing. Becca was no exception!

 With a little boy on the way, we did a beautiful photo shoot on Flashpoint Ranch (A.K.A. my photo park!) and had a great time with different looks in the field, near the woods, and various other places. Becca’s belly was beautifully round, and with only a couple of weeks to go before her due date, it was the perfect time for our shoot. 


Since then Becca and Craig have welcomed Connor, their new little bundle of trouble into the world!

Congratulations you two!
