Welcome baby boy {Metro Detroit Newborn Photographer}

I was so happy to welcome this adorable baby boy into my studio this week. There is something so special about watching a dear friend become a mother for the first time. Mom and I worked together for over 10 years before I started my photography business and she became a dear friend. I have watched her grow over the years. Last year she became a wife and a week ago a mother… two of the most amazing milestones in our lives. Well just as I knew she would be she is a natural. I just loved watching her and her husband interact and swoon over their precious baby boy! . I was able to take her beautiful maternity session back in the fall so I have been so excited to meet this little guy! And he didn’t disappoint Baby M was a dream to work with. He started to wake-up at the end of his session and we were able to capture his beautiful eyes. I cannot wait to watch this little guy grow over the years. I am so honored that I was asked to photograph this little peanut and capture such a special time in this young family’s life. Congratulations A+M you have a beautiful family!! Here are a few of my favorites from his session.newborn baby boy sleeping on white blanket with both parents hands resting on him baby boy sleeping in layers of gray fabric newborn baby boy sleeping in dads hands on a white backdrop dad holding newborn son with their noses touching newborn baby boy smiling newborn baby boy sleeping with his little face peeping out smiling mom holding her newborn son baby wrapped in blue wrap newborn baby boy sleeping posed on a white fabric Smiling mom and dad holding their newborn baby boy Newborn baby boy with eyes open wrapped in blue swaddle wrap

Winter Maternity Session {Rochester Hills, MI Maternity Photographer}

I had the pleasure of shooting a beautiful maternity session this week. It was a balmy 5 degrees the day of the session. My client really wanted a few outdoor shots and I am so glad that we embraced the cold weather and went outside to take a few. I had my camera ready and went out and took a few test shots before I had her and her husband come out. We ended up taking these shots in my front yard at my home studio. The warm afternoon light was beautiful and the trees had the prettiest fluffy snow on them and were the perfect backdrop for the photos. Prior to going outside we had a great time taking some studio photos including some amazing silhouette shots. This couple was a dream to work with and very fun. They were all smiles during their session and are genuinely excited for their baby girl on the way. Congratulations K+T… you are a beautiful couple and I am so very happy for you both! Here are few of my favorites from this winter wonderland session. Enjoy!!

Baby Boy on the Way {Metro Detroit Maternity Photographer}

This gorgeous mama has a baby boy on the way! Mom is friend of mine and I was honored to take these photos for her and her husband. I just loved watching these two interact. The love they show for each other was effortless! Their baby boy is going to be so loved and cherished. We started the session outside at my home studio in Clarkston. There were still so many beautiful fall colors to enjoy. And she brought the most perfect red lipstick to match the cranberry color dress I had for her to wear. We continued the session in my studio and they were so open to trying new poses and dresses I had a blast!! I cannot wait to meet their baby boy and take his newborn photos next month. Congratulations A+M I am over the moon happy and excited for you!!

Perfect Baby Boy {Metro Detroit Newborn Photographer}

I had the great pleasure of meeting this perfect baby boy this week! Mom reached out to me early in her pregnancy and booked me for his newborn session so I was so excited to meet him. This family of three was a pleasure to work with. They were such wonderful, loving people and the love that Mom and Dad had for each other along with their son just shined in the photos and throughout the session. Not to mention doesn’t Baby C have just the most perfect lips and full cheeks!?! This family drove over an hour to meet at my Clarkston home studio and Baby C was sleepy and ready to go when he arrived. We started with a beautiful soft gray and light blue floor set-up and then moved on to simple white beanbag poses. I just love shooting my beanbag poses on the white fabric. It is so pure just like the babies. I hope to see this family again soon… Congratulations T+B you have a beautiful family!! Here are few of my favorites from this session… Enjoy!!

Smiley Baby Boy {Clarkston, MI Newborn Photographer}

I met such a smiley baby boy this last week! I got so many little smiles out of this little guy. Makes me wonder what he was dreaming about…. It doesn’t happen often that I can capture a smile from one of my newborn clients but Baby A didn’t disappoint and game me quite a few. I was so excited to get the call from Baby A’s mom that she had another beautiful baby boy. Her daughter and my oldest daughter were in the same pre-school class last year. So it was so nice to meet the newest addition to the family and catch-up on all the kids. The session took place at my studio where I kept the color scheme for the session grays and whites like mom asked. I always chat with my clients before the session and ask what color the baby’s nursery is and what colors they want me to incorporate into the session. Baby A was a dream to work with and I hope to see him and the family again soon. Congratulations Y Family!! Here are a few favorites from the session. Enjoy!

Baby boy on the way! {Metro Detroit Maternity Photographer}

This beautiful couple has a baby boy on the way! This session was so special to me. The Mom to be is a dear family friend and took care of my oldest daughter when she was a baby. She was such an amazing caretaker for my daughter I just know she is going to be an amazing mother. Her and her husband (who is equally wonderful) just moved from Hawaii to Washington DC over the summer. They were home visiting family and they came over for an impromptu maternity session. They met me at my home studio it was a beautiful fall afternoon! We have had a such a late warm fall here in Michigan so the fall colors were still in full color. I just loved watching these two interact with each other. The joy and love they showed for one another was one of a kind. I wished they lived closer so that I could take their newborn photos for them. I cannot wait to meet their baby boy! Congratulations B+P you are going to be wonderful parents! Here are a few of my favorites from the session. Enjoy!

Smash cake in the Garden {Rochester Hills, MI Baby Photographer}

I got to spend the afternoon with this precious birthday girl at her smash cake session! I cannot believe that Baby B turned one last week… it seems like just yesterday that I was taking her newborn photos. I love spending time with this wonderful family. I saw them last for B’s 6-month sitter milestone session. Well this time she got to enjoy some cake. B’s and Mom and I went back and forth as to if the session should take place outside on location or at my home studio. We made the final decision to meet at a beautiful garden an hour before the session started. I am so glad that we decided to get some outdoor shots. Baby B did not disappoint she was happy and smiley as ever… this little girl is ALWAYS so happy and a pure pleasure to be around. We had fun playing with some balloons and looking at the flowers and at the end of her session smashing some cake. I can’t wait to see how much she grows of the next year. Here are a few of my favorites from her session… Enjoy!!

In Home Milestone Session {Clarkston, MI Baby Photographer}

I had an awesome morning spending time with little Violet during her in home milestone session. I don’t often travel to clients’ homes for sessions most of my clients choose to have their sessions at my studio or in an outdoor setting. But traveling to little Violet and her Mom was a fun change. When I arrived at their home I drove back through the most beautiful wooded setting. It was so quiet and private, very beautiful! Upon entering the home the first thing I saw was a gorgeous floor to ceiling picture window that looked out to the peaceful woods. I knew right away I was going to use that window for the session! Baby Violet just turned 3 months and was starting to roll and she did a great job holding up her head. Mom also asked to have some pictures taken in the nursery, which was a prettiest soft purple color with floral accents. I am very thankful that I was invited to come take Violet’s photos. I hope to see her again for another milestone session. Here are a few of my favorites from the session… Enjoy!

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!!

Happy Baby Boy {Rochester Newborn Baby Photographer}

This happy baby boy was all smiles already during his session!  I welcomed this sweet guy into my cozy Clarkston studio for his newborn session.  Mom and Dad were so fun to work with and Dad had me laughing almost the entire time.  Baby B snuggled right into his gray floor set-up that I chose to match his nursery.  When we got to the family photos it was so cute the second I put him into his Dad’s arms he got the biggest smile. And Mom was so sweet and absolutely gorgeous  I would have never guessed that she just had a baby!  I hope to see this little guy back for a milestone session soon.  Congrats to this beautiful family I am so happy I could capture this milestone for you!  Here are a few of my favorites from his session enjoy!!
