  • CAPTURING THE CANDID IN LIFE.

    Photography is about the candid, and capturing the life, love and laughter. It's not just about taking pictures, its about capturing that moment! Let me help you capture that moment for you too.

A FALL DAY WITH LUCY

Little ones are one of my favorite things to photograph. The moments that they create are so genuine and adorable, its gravitating! While watching my own kids at home, I constantly stop in my tracks to run for my camera. There are those fleeting moments they create and I can’t help having the urge to capture it! My little Lucy, is very cautious. So, her first few experiences in the fall leaves was nothing short of comical. She would walk her way into the center of a leaf pile, but stand as if glued to the ground. She would not move from that spot until I came to pick her up. In this instance, I took advantage of this moment to capture her darling face! Ha HA! GOTCHA!

KASEY AND RYAN // ROCKFORD, MI

Kasey and Ryan celebrated their big day in the most beautifully decorated wedding gone country! The Blu Hydrangea Barn in Rockford, Michigan was the perfect setting for this outdoor fall wedding. The trees exclaimed with the most vibrant colors as Kasey and Ryan spend the day laughing, loving and saying their I-Do’s. These two could not be more in love and excited for the promise of spending the rest of their lives together. To Kasey and Ryan – Thank you for making me apart of your special day.

A FAMILY VACA ON THE COAST // NAGS HEAD, NC

This past October we made our way down to Nag’s Head, North Carolina to celebrate my little brother marrying the love of his life! It was the perfect destination for a wedding, and the best excuse to spend an entire week vacationing with family! We spent our time walking the beach, eating way too much fresh seafood, lazy-ing it up by the pool, and let’s not for get the wedding nuptials! Here’s to the most amazing vacation and to dreaming about the next! Check out Robbie and Aimee’s beautiful wedding here! 

ROBBIE AND AIMEE // NAGS HEAD, NC

Like all my couples, these two hold a special place in my heart, but in this instance it’s because they’re family! This past October I made my way down to Nags Head, North Carolina to watch by little brother get married to the love of his life. Their wedding was  epically beautiful in it’s simplicity. After those intimate moments of their first look, we walked the shore to capture some beautiful photos of just the bride and groom. Then on to the ‘I-do’s”. I loved the ceremony. Just the beach and some chairs, decorated with the most gorgeous October day! Congratulations Robbie and Aimee!

This beautiful family became a family of 5 as they welcomed their new baby boy, Mason. Big brother Brady and big sister Emma were the sweetest older siblings as they cuddled either baby brother. And with Mason’s very special 4th of July Birthday, we had to whip out this adorable stars blanket.  I loved my session with this family!

WELCOME HOME BABY HAZEL

It’s one of the most amazing experiences as a new parent to bring home your new baby boy or girl for the first time. Another beautiful way to capture that intimate experience is to capture your baby’s first pictures within your home. From the nursery to the living room, I had to beautiful opportunity to take pictures of baby Hazel in her first week home from the hospital. This family holds a huge place in my heart and I can not congratulate them both enough on their new baby girl, and everything they have to look forward to as parents!  

PECK FAMILY PHOTOS

Extended family sessions have become a personal favorite of mine! These sessions are filled with lots of love, laugh and smiles. Smiles not just between parents and their children, but siblings, aunts and uncles, cousins, grandparents and grandchildren. My most recent session with the Peck family was exactly that, a series of beautiful moments captured between all three generations. I can’t help but smile as I look through these images of this beautiful family, and I feel so fortunate to be there to help capture it!
