Amanda + Steven – Engagement Photos

I am so lucky. I don’t know how I’m continually blessed to photograph some of the most wonderful and attractive people in Michigan. Take Amanda and Steven, for example. I love it when love between two people is immediately tangible. Thank you for spending your warm summer night running around Reed’s Lake with me. It was a gift.

Stay tuned for their wedding coming in 2019.

Kelsey + Andrew's Wedding Film

Last September, I had the wonderful opportunity to film Kelsey and Andrew's wedding. Kelsey, a cherished friend from a past-job life, asked if I would capture the intimate affair. Yes. Please, yes. Even if we were both almost 8 months pregnant at the time.

In addition to filming the ceremony, I put together this personal highlight video for the two of them. At the couples request, it was set to Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash's "Girl From The North Country". Just as Kelsey's taste in style is impeccable, so is her taste in music.

Emmeline's Newborn Photos

I am in a life season that is simultaneously overflowing with goodness and also completely energy-sucking. Welcome to early parenthood (my youngest daughter just turned 3 months old this month). That is why photo sessions like Emmeline's revive me and my soul.

The photos below are how I'm going to remember early parenthood. Beautiful baby Emmeline will only be this small for a moment. Along with her brother, who is already so much bigger than when we took his photos nearly 2-and-a-half years ago. And Emmeline's parents, who are wading through nights of less-than-ideal sleep and dirty diapers will look back and say "look at how young and beautiful we were!". And they are young and beautiful.

This is parenthood. Life is full and rich. And it's wonderful.
