Our New Home | Lifestyle Family Photography Session

This summer has been crazy busy. Between photographing a half dozen weddings, raising two little kiddos, working full time, Rick changing jobs and all of the other things life has thrown at us, for some crazy reason, we decided to sell our home and buy a new one. We’re definitely insane, right?

Despite all of the stress buying, selling and moving caused us over the past few months, it was so worth it. We finally feel settled in our new Negaunee home and are loving making new memories in this special place.

Orrin Henry’s Lifestyle Newborn Photos

Even though I primarily shoot weddings and engagements, capturing growing families is one of my absolute favorite things to do! I was blessed to spend Sunday morning with this adorable little man, Orrin Henry, and his two incredible parents. Megan and Andrew have been dear friends of mine for many years, and when Megan asked me if I would take newborn photos of their brand new man, I seriously could not have been more excited! Not only was I thrilled to get to meet (and hold and snuggle!) the new little mister, but I couldn’t wait to see the nursery she had been working on in person.

My dear friend Megan and her lovely husband recently let me know that they’re expecting their very first baby late this fall. When I got the news, I couldn’t be more excited! I was especially thrilled when Meg asked me if I’d be willing to take their gender reveal photos for them. I met Megan […]
