In Honor of His Due Date Today, Silas [Northern Michigan Newborn Photographer]

Today, on his due date, Silas is just over 2 months old and weighing over 7 lbs. His mama and I started planning for a maternity and newborn session last winter. We had the dates all scheduled and were so excited for a summer maternity session. Nature had different plans and when I contacted his mama to remind her of her maternity session, I found out Silas had actually been born the day before! Silas is definitely a strong little fighter though, as he was home in no time at all, thriving. I was able to meet him at just over 6 weeks old and he was such a little gem to work with. Super sleepy, happy and cuddly.

Due Any Day Now! {Northern Michigan Maternity Photographer}

Amy and Kevin decided to keep the gender of their little one a surprise, but should be meeting he/r any day now! I’d like to say that Amy came all the way from Chicago just to see me, but the reality is that her sister is my neighbor and the timing worked out nicely :D. I had so much fun with them!


A Beautiful Late Fall Day

Sometimes, okay a lot of the time, the clients I meet end up becoming more of a friend than someone I feel like I’m working for. Although I have to say I never really feel like I’m “working” at any session, because I adore what I do. I love getting to know new families and creating little tiny memories for them to keep in their pockets, er albums. Alicia and her family are certainly no exception. I’ve had the pleasure of spending two separate occasions with them now and they are just the sweetest, happiest family ever. I know it’s late winter now, but who doesn’t need a dose of these warmer weather pictures to put them in a good mood?

Laila & New Baby Sister Claire

We have had the pleasure of knowing these sweet girls’ parents since before they had children. Now here we are having kiddos pretty close in age, Laila and Olivia are within a couple months of each other, as will be my new little girl and her new little girl! Laila is too sweet and seemed to be very excited to be a big sister and miss Claire slept the afternoon away.
