Spring is here!! {Metro Detroit Maternity Photographer}

Spring is here which means the twins will be here shortly!  My husband Mike and I are very excited to meet our two new additions to the family.  This pregnancy has gone by pretty fast and we were lucky we had such a mild winter here in Michigan.  One of my favorite places to take maternity photos for my clients are at the Lake in the water.  Both my client and I both get in the lake to get some amazing, peaceful photos.  Well I would have loved to get in the lake for some photos of my own but the Great Lakes water temperatures are still far to cold to get in (well I was willing to brave it up to my knees but Mike was not).  So the next best place for me to capture some lake images was at MacRay Harbor.  MacRay is our summer home away from home and it is my happy place.  Weather permitting I will try and get some pictures of the babies there was well.  The twins will be here before we know it and I will be sure to post their newborn pictures on the blog as well.  Happy spring!!

I was so excited to meet this precious baby girl this week and welcome her into my Clarkton Studio!  Her mom is has been a good a good friend of mine for many years so this session was very special to me.  It is such an honor to be able to photography my friends babies and children.  Mom saw me last month for an amazing maternity session where we visited some beautiful gardens and got in the lake together.  Baby R arrived a couple weeks early from her expected due date but Mom and Dad couldn’t be more thrilled to meet her.  She was such a good little baby for me and posed just great.   She woke up toward the end of her session and I was able to get some photos of her with her eyes open.  Congrats A family!  I am so excited I could capture this amazing milestone for you.  Here are a few favorites from the session.  Enjoy!!

Tiny Dancer ~ 8 Days {Metro Detroit Newborn Photography}

This baby girl was a tiny dancer in her moms belly.  Her mom is a very talented dancer and dances for the Rockettes on Broadway in NYC.  When she got pregnant with baby A she was still dancing and this baby girl danced along in her belly.  I met this family at my studio and the session began.  They are such a beautiful family and mom and dad glowed with joy over the birth of their baby girl.  Dad was so very sweet interacting with his baby girl and his wife his love for his girls really showed.  Mom brought a beautiful basket that I posed baby A in that her mother made.  Such a special item, I love incorporating family items into sessions.  I’m sure that baby A will grow up to be a dancer just like her mom and her aunt.  I hope to see this family back soon for some milestone photos of this precious baby girl.  Here are a few of my favorites from their session.  Enjoy!

Summer Night Family Session {Clarkston Family Photographer}

I had the pleasure of spending time with one of my favorite families for a gorgeous summer night family session.  I met this family a year ago when I did newborn photos for their little guy.  I also did a sitter session for him back in the spring.  Each time we meet we have such a great time and I have really enjoyed getting to know them over the year.  We met at a local nature preserve and this location was perfect for their session.  The summer night sunset light was so intense and really added a beautiful glow to the final images.  I just sat back and let the family interact and captured moments from the evening.  I can’t wait to see baby T again in the future and capture more memories for this family.  Here are a few of my favorites from the session… Enjoy!

Cheeky Baby Boy ~ 13 days {Bloomfield Hills Newborn Photographer}

This cheeky baby boy was so, so sweet and such a good little guy!  This sessions was super special.  Before each session I call the parents to do a phone consultation during the call I always encourage parents to bring any family heirlooms they may want to incorporate.  Mom and Dad came with some beautiful treasures.  Baby A is named after his grandmother who passed very suddenly 3 months before he was born.  They brought a bracelet that she wore everyday and asked for it to be used in the photos.  It was so sweet and special and I was so happy I could incorporate it.  Dad is also a huge Michigan State football fan (and so am I… GO GREEN!) so you can only imagine my excitement when Dad brought a signed helmet by head coach Mark Dantonio!  We had a great time and we captured some amazing photos of baby A.  I hope to see him back again in studio for some milestone photos.  Here are a few of my favorites from his session… Enjoy!

Summer Maternity Session {Metro Detroit Maternity Photographer}

I had the most beautiful Michigan summer maternity session last night!  We started the session out at my studio and got some family pictures and some of mom alone.  Then it was on to the local park for some fun!  Big brother to be was all over the place and just wanted to run and play he was so cute and full of spirit.  But we were able to get him to sit still long enough to get some family pictures thanks to a snack.  Then we concluded the session at the lake.  The water is truly my happy place I just love lake photos.  We had a beautiful sunset and we all got in the water (yes me too!!) and took some amazing shots that I know this family will treasure.  Mom is a friend of mine and we used to work together years ago.  They have since moved to North Carolina but were home visiting.  I was so excited to get her call that she wanted to get some maternity and family photos done while she was home visiting.  She is expecting her second baby boy this fall and I hope to meet him next time they visit.  Congrats to the growing B family… I am over the moon happy for you guys!  Here are a few of my favorites from their session… Enjoy!!!!

One last Family Moment {Oakland County Family Photography}

I was so happy I could capture one last family moment for this family at their home.  Mom and Dad decided to sell the family home that their children had grown up in.  When I found this out I thought the perfect place for the session was in the home they had cherished for so many years.  The swing set that the kids had enjoyed for many years was still up you could just imagine the laughter and fun that took place in the yard.   As Mom and I were walking around the property she would point out places where they would take photos… “Here is where we took all the kids prom and homecoming photos” she told me.  And she shared with me the fun times of them fishing in the lake and the hanging baskets she liked to plant each year.  It was such a natural environment for them and the laughter and smiles just came so natural for the whole family.  I am excited for them to hang a nice large canvas in the new home above the fire place.  At the very end of the session I got one last photo of them walking down the driveway.  Mom expressed this was her favorite image because her and her husband were holding each other and the kids were walking ahead of them.  She told me that image spoke to her because it was like it was their last walk down the driveway to a new adventure and all of the kids are leaving home. It was as though her and her husband were watching them leave the nest.  I wish the G family the best of luck in their new home and all the new journeys ahead of all of them.  Here are a few of my favorites from the session… Enjoy!

Bright eyed baby boy ~ 14 days {Rochester Hills Newborn Photographer}

This baby boy was bright eyed throughout his session and loved to be awake.  He didn’t want to miss a thing!  After a long string of baby girls in studio I finally had a baby boy.  This handsome little guy is so special to me.  He and his sister belong to one of my best of friends.  I was so honored when she asked me to take both her maternity photos and baby V’s newborn photos.  He was a dream baby and was really interested in what I was doing.  We started his session with a floor set-up then went to the bean bag and finished up with adding big sister the mix.  I was so happy to do this session for an amazing family.  Here are few of my favorites from their session… Enjoy!!bright eyed baby boy baby boy on cream flokoti rug with blue wrap Metro Detroit Newborn Photographer baby boy with big sister Metro Detroit Newborn Photographer baby boy in taco pose baby boy laying in gray blankets in blue wrap baby boy toes in blue blanket
