Adalynn’s Birth Day | Northern Michigan Birth Photographer

I was so honored when Kim asked me to be present and capture the birth of her first baby, a girl named Adalynn. Adalynn’s daddy would not be able to make it, as he so bravely serves our country and was overseas, still is overseas and will be for some months still. He was able to meet her via Facetime within hours after and I’m sure there wasn’t a dry set of eyes in that room.

She ended up making her big appearance 2 weeks past her due date, keeping us all on our toes! Here is a little peek at our afternoon.

Vilah Bloom | Northern Michigan Commercial Photographer

I’m so excited to share Vilah Bloom with everyone! These diaper bags have it all. They are light weight, they have a lot of pockets for organizing all of the necessities that come with being a mama and they include a one hand operational wipe dispenser on the front – all while keeping us looking fashionable too! It all starts with a need and a dream.

This is just a small preview, to save some as surprises….


My 2013 Favorites | Northern Michigan Photographer

Here it is! (Almost) every session from 2013, including full or mini sessions. There are a few not pictured, due to not being able to publicly share. 149 total sessions counting them all, 42 of those were Newborn Sessions. Many of them include some of the 42 Newborns at 3 months, 6 months and/or 9 months even! I just love watching all your little babes grow!  Congratulations, Alaina Farrington, you guessed the closest number and have won a complimentary mini session! Please contact me at to get your info!

I cannot thank you ALL enough for making this a fantastic year for me. As I looked through the images from years past and even the beginning of this year, I can see my growth and I love it! I’ve even moved up to sharing a gorgeous studio and office at the Main Street Collaborative with a few other amazing women. I’m looking forward to some really fun things to come in 2014.

Now, these are definitely not pictured in any sort of order, only how they saved to the album I sorted them into. If your eyes don’t cross looking through all of these, I urge you to try to make it to the bottom to vote for your favorite! The image with the most votes, one week from today (January 10th), will win a Family or Newborn session to take place this year! If you or your kiddos are in any of these, feel free to share with your friends and family!

Happy New Year!! Here’s to 2014!
