the chin family | gross pointe, michigan

This family is simply so lovely. I'm so thankful we met. During their session, we got to chat about the city of Detroit, the many connections we have through our communities, their sweet kiddos {and mine}, and our beloved university {go blue!!}. It was such an easy, relaxed time, it could have been over coffee and not with them in front of the camera. These images convey that, too. Also, pro tip from Laura-- mini marshmallows make excellent bribes+rewards for the cooperation of littles :)

Thanks for the privilege of capturing your family, Laura + Jeff!

the gray family | ann arbor, michigan

Today I'm taking an editing break for a long overdue blogpost! This session had so many images I wanted to share, so making time to share here was a must in my book. 

The Gray family is so. much. fun. to be with, and Lucy is a precious little soul who loves to smile and laugh, which translated extremely well for their photographs. 

As always, it is THE BEST to reconnect with returning clients + friends. Thank you Kristine for trusting me again for your family photos! It's an honor and privilege! Enjoy these sweet images.

adela james | six months | plymouth, michigan

As soon as I met Adela, I knew I was in for a fun session. 

I mean, look at that precious face!

I photographed Kristen while she was anxiously awaiting baby, and it was so fun to see this little life in action! 

Despite having colds all week, this cute family stuck it out and made being photographed look easy. 

Thanks for making my job so fun and for sharing Adela with me, Kristen and Rich! You're rocking this parenting thing and I'm so honored to have captured you as a family of three.
