[Spring Review]

I’ve been away for a little while and want to catch you up on my latest adventures! I have really been focusing on honing in on what types of photography I am passionate about and trying to invest in those areas more this year than ever. I am so excited to have the property that my family lives on now, to accommodate your family sessions, engagements, senior photos and all of the other wonderful occasions we meander outside for. I can’t wait to explore more of this land and have more areas available for your use!

A group in my old church hosts a 5K fundraiser each year for a project they have put together in Haiti, for the past few years I have donated a photo package and the winning bid last year was Maggie Taugher.
We e-mailed several times and planned a date, I had a reminder set on my phone to check in a couple of months in advance to confirm the date- I got an interesting response, telling me that her son would like to arrange something with me.
And immediately I knew he was going to propose to his girlfriend.
I called Tom and we made plans for when and where during our session he would propose to his long-term girlfriend, Ashley. And I screamed when I got off the phone! A surprise engagement has been on my photography bucket list for SO long!
So the Taugher family + significant others made the drive to our little farmland and expected nothing more than family photos.
And here’s when things changed pace…IMG_4994-2IMG_4996IMG_4998IMG_5001-2IMG_5005IMG_5010-2IMG_5020-2IMG_5023-2IMG_5031-2IMG_5040IMG_5044-2IMG_5053-2IMG_5060-2IMG_5072-2IMG_5085-2
Congratulations to Tom & Ashley! Thanks so much for letting me be a part of this!

I’ve known Jon & Bianca for a couple of years now- I had the honor of capturing their wedding video in 2016 and we have stayed connected since! It was so fun to see how their little one, Adrianna, had grown and to see them doing well as a family. Here’s a preview of our time together:

Thanks for letting me be a part of this great time in your family’s lives!


[Colin + Allenna]

Winter wonderland is the perfect description for Colin & Allenna’s day. The weekend of the Wright Wedding, a snow storm hit Mid-Michigan, resulting in some stressful travel for some but gorgeous photos for the rest ๐Ÿ™‚

I love the color scheme they chose- these deep colors look beautiful with one another.IMG_7775

[Baby Emily]

I had the sweet privilege of meeting baby Emily this month. She is tiny and rosy and all sorts of beauty… and she has a great name ๐Ÿ˜‰
You may remember meeting her sister a while back (Olivia), unfortunately O slept the whole time and missed her baby sister’s entire photo shoot!
Here’s a little preview of this doll!

Thanks for trusting me with another one of your precious girls, Kayla & John!


Family, Friday Photos, The Homestead

[Friday Photos]

We’ve been busy and it’s been a while since I posted a Friday Photos update! I keep meaning to take a walk around our new property with my camera, but I leave for work when it’s dark and I come home from work when it’s dark.. and now it’s deer season andย  I don’t think my neighboring deer camps would appreciate me taking strolls through the land, interrupting their deer, on the days I’m home during daylight hours. So, at least we have the kitchen window for our views.
Last Saturday morning, my husband and I slept in a little bit and enjoyed our first Saturday on our new land. We’ve been at the house for a few weeks now, but have been busy working on myย  other house, prepping it for Showings, so this was the first one we could enjoy at home. We saw about 7 deer that morning. After the third appeared, I realized I should run and grab my camera and try to capture some.
It took me a minute to find my camera (since there are so many boxes!) and I didn’t bother to test my lighting, I just snapped as much as I could, as steadily as I could, without spooking these beauties. This is RIGHT outside our window.

Bluebirds really seem to enjoy our house, we see a LOT of them.IMG_5618IMG_5619IMG_5620IMG_5621
These babes are with their mom, they’re being chased by a buck!IMG_5622IMG_5624

I’ve never been a bird fan, but I’m really enjoying them now. Any recommendations on bird books? I’d like to learn about what sorts like to perch at our kitchen window.

[Hi, Grandma.]


Shortly after the deer ran off, my handsome husband got on his outdoor gear and took the tractor for a spin. He’s like a little kid in the candy shop on this thing. He LOVES IT and I think it’s so cute.
We’ve been unpacking boxes for three weeks, who knew we had so much STUFF?! All the bedrooms are set up and the living room mainly is. Dan spent the first week redoing the plumbing and fixing it so that I can still see out the window while I fold! It’s perfect. We’ve tried so hard to find internet, but that just is not a thing out in the Thumb. We’ve relocated and things are a little different out in the sticks than they are in the city. We’ve got hot spots on our phones and are using them as our source to the outside world. Can’t wait to share more with you.
We’re so excited to be home.
