the statlers 2013

We have loved documenting the Statler family as they have expanded and grown. Moira is 1 now, and Liesel is almost 3. They are both the sweetest, most lovable girls with all their own personality – as I’m sure you can see :)

erin and john – with a special surprise!

Erin and John are dear friends of ours, so we were really excited when John asked us to take a few pictures of him and Erin. We decided to go to Detroit and visit the Heidelberg Project, Belle  Isle, and the Detroit Institute of Arts. At DIA, John had arranged a VERY special surprise for Erin… check out the pictures to see what it was!

baby noel is here!

Baby Noel entered the world about 2 weeks early – with more hair than I have ever seen on a baby! She is such a sweet little girl and we are so happy for Shaun and Joy.

the wallace family

Happy Thanksgiving! We are so grateful for all of our clients – working with you is a joy, and we truly love it!

We are also thankful that we have gotten to know the Wallace family the last few months. They moved to Ann Arbor at the beginning of the summer and we think they are awesome – and we also think Hannah is just about the cutest little bug ever.

the gabriels, plus one

Shaun and Joy are dear friends of ours, and we are so thrilled they are expecting a little baby girl mid-December! We were honored to take their maternity photos and Joy was a total trooper through some cold weather. Joy and Shaun are naturals in front of the camera, and David finally had to tell me to stop taking pictures because I could have gone on until dark with these two. Shaun and Joy, we are so excited for you to meet Baby Girl Gabriel – and we can’t wait to meet her also!


Also, Shaun and Joy wanted to recreate one of their engagement photos, so here is the picture, along with the one from their engagement. What a good looking couple!

selah grace is here!

Holding and photographing Selah Grace at 10 hours old was such an honor! It was so special to see Mike and Erin interact with their new baby girl. Congratulations to the Penns – now a family of FOUR! Not only was this my first hospital shoot, but it is also my first entirely black and white post.


Also, here’s a first of a blog post – a picture of me with Baby Selah!

mike, erin and trey, plus one

We have had a great three years having lots of fun with the Penns (since we live 1.86 miles away and all). We decided to update Trey’s 6 month photos, and to also document Erin’s pregnancy – they are having a little girl near the end of September! We took some photos in their yard (which was also updated due to America’s Most Desperate Landscape!), and then went to downtown Dexter’s cute new park.

chris + kyri are married!

David and I have been looking forward to the Kemp wedding for a long time for a lot of reasons – they were the first to officially book a wedding with us, they got married on a beautiful beach, we loved their engagement session, and they are great friends of ours! It was an honor to be a part of their day – the day we almost missed because of taking a wrong turn and ending up on the bridge to Canada! Once we figured that out though, the rest of the day was very smooth and a perfect celebration of the love Chris and Kyri share. Enjoy!

amanda and lloyd are married!

I have known Amanda for as long as I can remember – she’s my best friend’s sister, which makes her mostly my sister, too! Amanda and Lloyd got married at her uncle’s gorgeous house on the lake. It was a beautiful day after the rain moved out, and was wonderful to celebrate Amanda, Lloyd and Kyra becoming a family – and even more exciting, baby Aviana joined them a few weeks later to make them a family of four. Congratulations, Amanda and Lloyd – what an exciting year you have had!

eric and his girls

David and I went down to Indianapolis for a concert and got to stay with Tricia, Eric and the girls again! We also were able to go to a beautiful Indy park and take some more pictures. Moira (4.5 months) has grown so much since her newborn photos and Liesel (2 years on Tuesday!) is just as silly and wonderful as ever! She makes lots of great faces – but as you will see, she definitely gets them from her mother 😉 Taking pictures with them is always a blast, and I am looking forward to many more photoshoots in the future!
