Hang Wedding | Wrightsville Beach NC Elopement | Michigan Destination Wedding Photographer

I was so honored to be a part of Amanda and Tom’s wedding this past weekend. If you didn’t know, Amanda and I were roomies back when we lived together in North Carolina. When I was asked to be apart of their day, I legit cried because I knew she planned for it to only be family.

Self Portraits of Motherhood Part 1-26 | Michigan Lifestyle Photographer

I am so surprised with how fast the first half of 2018 went. I’m not sure if it is because I am so busy with life that the days just keep passing by or because it really is true that the older you get the faster time goes by. I am hoping it is not the second one because I don’t want AJ to grow up that fast just yet…

Nathan + Lauren | Southern Michigan Lifestyle Session

It doesn't seem as long as it has since the last time I had the chance to work with Lauren and Nathan, but it has been a whole year already as crazy as that it. The last time we did maternity photos for their expecting baby boy, so this year we just had a fun couples session in the snow.

I know, I know, it has been quite a while since I last blogged. I promise I will try to do better throughout the year, I have been slowly getting used to a new work schedule I have from a new job and it has taken time away from my blogging.

I have been working on something the past few months that I am so excited to share!

Project 365 | December

I have spent the past three years exploring parenthood and the vulnerabilities that it brings. My thesis closed the chapter on insecurity and opened a new one for me to document parenthood in a new way. This year, I decided to showcase parenthood as it is. Each day I will capture a photograph from a moment in my family's personal life. They won't be perfect because, like life, nothing is, you take what you can get. This year will bring many journeys for my family, and I can't wait to share them with you.

A Snowy Day | Jackson, MI

It’s December in Michigan, which usually means cold negative weather..

Not this year, the good ol' Mitten State had other plans. The fall time was non-existent and then we have had temperatures in the 50s even in what are usually the coldest months of the year. Not that I am complaining over here, I am not a fan of the cold at all. I blame my North Carolina blood for that...
