Sperling Family

Mini Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  October 2016

I met this lovely family for their mini-session in gorgeous downtown Winter Park, and we were blessed with absolutely perfect fall weather on the day after a hurricane blew right up the eastern coast.  The littlest member of this family was a bit shy, so I really had to work to get even a few real smiles. But can I share a secret with you little Miss A?  Stolen smiles are my most favorite. I only wish our time together hadn’t been quite so short!

Closs Family

Family Session  |   Mount Pleasant, MI  |  June 2016

This family… they made my job so easy!  Though they were quick to take direction and happy to give me big beautiful smiles on command, this crew would have been delighted to spend the whole session joking and laughing with one another as if I wasn’t even there.  Obviously we’re big believers in having family portraits taken often to capture the changes as little ones grow up and families evolve, but we also love that the hour or two you spend with your photographer is an opportunity to preserve all the laughs and smiles and just what makes your relationships so special year to year.  I absolutely loved seeing this family enjoy their time together — it certainly shows in their photos. Do me a favor and blow a few of these up to hang on your walls, okay guys?

Anniversary Session  | Blanchard, MI |  June 2016

Sessions with past wedding couples are one of my favorite things.  Weddings are magical and beautiful, but taking time to do an anniversary session a year after the big day can be a chance for a more relaxed experience.  I love that an anniversary shoot is also an opportunity for a couple to reconnect and reminisce about their first year or marriage.  These two were such a treat on their lovely wedding day AND during our twilight summer session.  What a treat to see both their little family and their beautiful relationship growing month by month!
