Photographing everywhere there is love and light | Detroit | Ann Arbor | Chicago & Worldwide

brown family . maternity

I met Claire and James when they were first pregnant with their son , and I photographed Max when he was just a few days old.   The first time I met the Browns I felt like I had known them forever and when they moved out of state, well I missed them, is that odd?  It’s true… so when Claire emailed and said they were coming back to town for just a few days and she was pregnant and could I make time to fit her into my busy schedule I said “no schedule is too busy for you”… so from Arizona into freezing, snowy Michigan they came and we met up at my studio and we took some beautiful photographs.  Thank you Claire and James for letting me again be part of such a special time in your family.   I heart you guys.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
