amanda’s family maternity session

this is mothers day weekend so forgive a huge post but it couldn’t be helped.  amanda and her family were amazing, beautiful and so much fun, and I went a bit crazy around their ann arbor home :)  there is a beautiful song by lily allen about life nowadays seemingly more about film stars and less about mothers and so at least around here, at least around mothers day, I’m going to celebrate a mom, and moms in general.   (note we’re seeing the crayola coloured bubbles again, and again yes they are being used much more like finger paint, lovely, fun, bright fingerpaint!)

amanda’s sister was there too and I got some nice shots of her, she styled the shoot and did fantastically! thanks sis!

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.
