Trash the Prom/Bridesmaid Dress Session, Detroit MI Wedding Photographer

I had such a FUN time with Chelsey and Chrystal on this Trash the Dress Photo shoot. These two ladies met up with me to "dirty up" some old bridesmaid dresses they had laying around the house. To be totally honest with you, I love the concept of getting another USE out of such pricey gowns. You can sit in the grass, lean up against a tree, lay in the sand, walk in the water- anything to get a good picture- because it no longer MATTERS if the dress gets dirty.
(Note: Almost all dresses can be restored to original condition with a simple dry cleaning).
And, of course, you look amazing in the images. If you have an old wedding gown, bridesmaid dress, or prom dress and want to do a Trash the Dress Session- send me a message. I would love love LOVE to book a date with you.

Chelsey and I met last September. We have worked together a handful of times since then and she has pretty much become one of my muses.... such a fun model to work with. She is local and for hire if anyone is interested. Her posing, dedication and ability to emote are fabulous- and she keeps getting better. Her girlfriend, Chrsystal, joined us for this shoot. It was her first time and she really did a great job. The three of us visited a graffiti area, some railroad tracks and a small stream. Check out some of my favorite images below:

A few from the Train Tracks... And yep! A train DID come while we were there.

Here are some from the water spot. Yes, we were ALL in the water, myself included...at least waist high. Considering it was 90 + degrees when we shot, the water felt pretty good. Aren't they beautiful??

There are a handful more images as well... I am working on the final touches and will put them in a gallery on my website for you two to view very soon. Hope you enjoy them. :)

Award Winning Work

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all having a fabulous Summer so far. This weather and the extra time with family is so amazing- I look forward to it each and every year.
I have not taken any time recently to show some of my awarded work here in my Blog, so I will do that this post. As most of you know I am active in a handful of photography websites: Betterphoto, Digital Image Cafe, ScrapinWillies, Deviant Art, and OnExposure.
Below are some images which were recognized with a "Winner" or "Finalist" or "Photo of the Day" (depending on which site it was on). I was also featured in Betterphoto's Digital Darkroom monthly newsletter recenlty. Another image was in Times Square, New York, as Kodak's Photo of the Day.

If you are looking to take 1 on 1 PS Lessons with me via email, please contact me ASAP- I had one spot open up for July and have another available opening in August. Sessions are 1 day a week.

I am also currently booking: High School Senior, Children and Family Sessions for July and August... but dates are filling up fast. Send me a note to hold your spot today!
Thanks for stopping by!! Be sure to check back in soon- I have a fun Trash the Dress shoot coming up with some lovely ladies ...followed by a beautiful outdoor family session, my Little Punk contest winners and a couple of High School Seniors over the next 2 weeks. Stay tuned. I am very excited about all of these sessions and cannot wait to share the results with you!

Engagement -Session, SE Michigan Photographer

I met up with a fabulous couple- Jaime and Scott a few days ago. Let me tell you, they have some TERRIFIC chemisty. :) It is easy to see how happy they make one another and I was honored to spend time with them. Check out a handful of my favs from our "urban location" below:

I love the way he looks at her! :)

The 3 of us also took images in a "nature" setting. Those images will be ready soon, Jaime and Scott. Hang in there.

I cannot wait to work with you again... maybe one day in the future. A sexy beach shoot, wedding and kids? Lol. ;)
Keep in touch!!! I had so much fun with you two!

Baby's First Year Sneak Peak, {Northville, Michigan Baby Photographer}

I had a session on Sunday with beautiful Miss "L" and it was so much fun. Her parents purchased a Baby's First Year package with me and this was our first scheduled shoot together. She is 3 months old now- and so well behaved. I love those big brown eyes- omg! I had time last night and this afternoon to work on some of the images. Check a few of my favorites out below:

And her big sister "A" came along on the shoot, too! When I say "big" I mean almost 2 years old. Don't you just love those curls? So super C.U.T.E.

I am currently working on the rest of the pictures, Mom and Dad! (There are about 8 more.) The slideshow will be ready in just a couple of days. Watch for a message from me. :)

I cannot wait to work with you all again...
