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

Danielle and Jesse . Ann Arbor . Maternity


Maternity sessions are special to me.  I do a lot of them actually and I always wished I’d had photos taken when I was pregnant with Ares, it never happened, I never got around to it, and I so wish I had.  It’s a really in between time, especially for a first time mom and dad and these moments not only serve to celebrate what is to come; they ground each couple in the moment, even if it’s just for a little bit, and the peace and love that comes from being mindfully aware that a life is on it’s way and all the feelings that brings up are just as priceless as the images the session creates.

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.
