One year celebration in Goodells Park

Mickey Mouse style Birthday Party Portraits

Young Family Session by Port Huron Photographer

1 year photoshoot with watermelon michigan child photographer.jpg

   Mickey Mouse ears and balloons every where! My baby book and playing with Mommy and Daddy. And to top it off- watermelon slices bigger than my head!
     I’m sure these were William’s thoughts the day of his One Year shoot!! I mean, it sounds like a dream day for any little boy turning the big O-N-E!
   We drove out to Goodells Park early in the morning to set up on a cute, old farm house front porch. Only to find the biggest fair of our area was happening- the 4H Fair!   I’ll skip the long version, but to sum it up we drove the 30 mins unknowingly, didn’t have enough cash to pay the entry fee, scrounged up money from our purses and vehicle, rehearsed my sob story, and a very, very nice gentlemen let us into the park for $14, instead of the $40 it should have cost. Thank goodness for good people in this world!
   Once we FINALLY got in the often barren park was FULL of campers, rides, and FARM ANIMALS!
   We had such a nice morning with this little adorable family of 3! We did family portraits, couple portraits and then it was William's time to shine! We busted out the Mickey Mouse ears while he played with balloons and ended the shoot with juicy, huge pieces of watermelon. His little hands and mouth were determined to take it all on and it ended in the stickiest, wettest, cutest mess you’ve ever seen.
   Take a look!
   Oh, and of course afterwards we went a looked at all the cute farm animals, because, honestly, who could resist?!

“Mandrake, or Mandragora, is used to return those who have been transfigured to their original state. It’s also quite dangerous. The Mandrake’s cry is fatal to anyone who hears it.”
— Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets

   I am (and not so secretly, may I add) obsessed with Harry Potter. I mean, I flew all the way to Europe just to go to The Studio Tour and took a special trip to Florida not for the sunshine, but specifically for The Wizarding World. I don’t think it’s becoming a problem in my day to day life, but I can’t be too sure. haha
   Nicki, little Corbin’s mom equally loves HP and wanted to do a 2 part session for his 6 (ish) month session. So we did a Mandrake syle set up just for her, and an adorable vintage set for the rest of the family to enjoy.
   We set him up in our slightly over grown (we’ve been busy, ok!) garden and made a little version of the Herbology classroom. Corbin did GREAT! He even munched on some greens for the full experience. What a stinker.
   I was sad when I had to tear down the set, so the sign still stands in my garden!
   Next Mom changed him into adorable little old man suspenders and a cap and we went out and just sat in the tall grass in the back of the studio and played with all the old things I collect as a hobby and blame it on my job so I can keep collecting. Again, he did amazing. His cute, different expression... we captured so many different sides to him!

A Modern Engagement Session in Port Huron, MI

Celebrating the future Mr. and Mrs.
with a photoshoot

A young couple, their pup, and 1 hidden trail

blue water river walk outdoor couple photoshoot engagement session with golden retriever.jpg

   Bridget and I had been planning the visual journey we would take for her wedding for quite a few months before I ever got to meet Russell. Little did I know they also had a secret child they didn't tell me about that I would be meeting the day of their engagement shoot - Zelda! 
   Geometric shapes was the theme for their wedding, but they also love the outdoors, so I took them to the Blue Water River Walk in Downtown Port Huron. It was the perfect mix of both. The tunnel which created some stunning angles and shapes with the highlights and shadows, and then the nature areas that are fairly new to the area.
   We basically just went on a casual walk, stopping and grabbing fun shots when we saw something that caught our eye. When I say the process is natural and fun, I mean it, so stop being so nervous, guys!
   I LOVE couples that I don't have to direct, that I don't have to explain what it looks like to like each other. Sure... I can help you a little but I can't MAKE you be ridiculously adorable with each other if you just aren't, and Russell and Bridget were pretty stinkin' cute with each other so that worked out nicely! And Zelda, oh my goodness, what a good girl!
   Since we were photographing their wedding (one of the last two for this year, and I'm currently not booking more- heads up!) Bridget was unsure about getting engagement photos as well, but I told her, you're going to be happy that you have beautiful portraits of the two of you together, natural, the way you are every day, not in fancy wedding attire. I am SO glad they did this! Their Wedding portraits are gorgeous too (hopefully you guys will see those soon!) but these show off their personality and tell their story on an every day level, which I love.
   So now, let's go on a visual journey of what they looked like right before they said I Do!

Forest Fairy Photoshoot

Woman creates art with her movement during this Dance Photoshoot

Whimsical Beauty tucked away in the forest

whimsical photoshoot michigan artistic portrait photographer.jpg

   Barefoot and beautiful, walking through the crunched up Fall leaves and the dried Spring mud. It’s a whimsical, natural type of beauty we’re about to capture.
   Next on Pointe and running with tule, Kayla creates art through her movement and dance. Watching her flow, unplanned choreography is like watching water flow.
   The whole shoot reminds you of a stunning little forest fairy hopping around the forest ground. The trees folded to make perfect tunnels and the road turning up the hill made for a more modern version.

   I love shoots like these… natural, gorgeous, a bit over the top! Take this experience to celebrate yourself with flowers in your hair, jumping off rocks, dancing in the middle of the road.

   Kayla is lucky enough to own her own company where she literally gets to be a fairytale princess every day… no… really…. you can have Cinderella come to your birthday party and secretly, it’s Kayla, but ssshhh, don’t tell anyone. How fun of a life is that!? She's also a professional Dancer. This was to be a mature yet innocent and wondrous blend of both of those worlds- truly reflecting who she is. 

   See what we created together below:
