christensen family | vacation family photography | traverse city, michigan

This adorable family was planning to vacation in Traverse City this summer, and contacted me desiring a family session to document their time there. I thought it was such a clever idea! To approach something that you really desire, but might be stressful, and execute it while in relaxation mode on vacation! Andrea, you’re a genius. And it paid off, because we had so much fun running around on the beach and throwing rocks and shells in the water.

If I could do every session with this weather and this backdrop, I would. Thank you summer!

For living in the city, you’d think I take more advantage of Eastern Market + The Dequindre Cut— for work and play. After this session with this family I certainly plan to! I loved all the vibrant colors, coverage from the threatening rain, and wide open spaces. 

 

Hanging with this family came easy. I’m grateful they brought some of their own fresh vision for this session and trusted me all the same— it felt personal and real and I really really like that. Thanks for asking me to capture your family, friends.

On his 4 week birthday, I’d love to introduce you to Auggie! Or Augustine Palmer, more properly. I had a blast having him and his adoring siblings and hero parents in my studio— my biggest group yet, at 8!

come back soon, simkins!
