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.

The group (which included three generations!) was a joy to photograph and get to […]

Wilson Family Photos | Marquette, Michigan

It’s hard to believe that we were able to take family Christmas photos on the beach last weekend, and even harder to believe that it was 50+ degrees with NO SNOW! It was an absolutely gorgeous day and I couldn’t be happier with how the photos turned out. Enjoy!
