The Zerwick Family | Holly, Michigan Family Photographer

I absolutely adore this family!  They not only braved 18-degree weather for their family photos but had a blast while doing it!

I’ve taken Chelsea and Zach’s senior photos, so I knew how great it was going to be. The funny part was, Tonya wanted just a light dusting of snow – her wish was granted – with over a foot!

Thank you Zerwick family for making my job extra awesome!

Lauren and Eric engaged! | Holly, Michigan Wedding Photographer

Eric and Lauren are engaged to be married next summer and we got together for some snowy engagement photos this month! They picked Seven Lakes State Park for the location, and I cannot say I would have been happier with anywhere else!

The sun was shining, we had just been blanketed with about 8 inches of snow, and it was absolutely breath-taking. These two were real troopers – even sitting in the snow when I asked! Thankfully, with the sun, it wasn’t terribly cold – but I can only imagine how chilly their bums were after this session!

Thank you Lauren and Eric! It was amazing to finally meet you both and I look forward to your barn wedding in September!

Caleb turns 6! | Highland, Michigan Children Photographer

This little man just turned 6! And he lost his first tooth! That must have been why I got such good smiles 😉

Wendy and Joe | Holly, Michigan Engagement Photographer


Here’s something I know we don’t really want to think about – SNOW!

But this session is simply too magical to not share!

Wendy and Joe came to me back in January when Michigan was hit with a gigantic snow storm! And they were brave enough to meet me in downtown Holly for some fun, wintery engagement photos. I have to say, I was pretty giddy with excitement, because it’s not very often when someone WANTS to have their photos taken during a snow storm. What a gorgeous setting!

They even brought their cute boxer Heineken who was excited too!

Congratulations Wendy and Joe! I wish you all the happiness in the world!







Reagan – 9 months |Holly, Michigan Children Photographer

Reagan was back for her nine-month portrait session and she’s even more adorable than when I saw her just three short months ago! (If that’s even possible?!)

She was such a good little model for her mommy and I – we even were able to take a few quick photos outside in the snow! She loves her Minnie Mouse, which definitely shows 🙂 What a sweet pea!
