It's been a busy past couple months. I tried my first Holiday Mini Session at a local tree farm. I felt it went okay, stressful trying to schedule and work with so many schedules & mother nature. The families were so fun, and I loved the outcome of the sessions! Looking forward to some returning clients.
I haven't blogged or posted many photos as I wanted my families to surprise their family and friends with Christmas photos. Now, I get to review it all and share with you. I was introduced to some new clients, and enjoyed seeing some familiar faces.
First I worked with this awesome family. They are returning clients, as I did their oldest son's senior photos. We had the pleasure of shooting around Cottonwood Barn in Dexter. It was a chilly and windy day, but they hung in there to get some fun photos for mom. Thanks Laura for allowing me to capture some memories to hang up on your wall!
My first time meeting the Fremuth Family, and what a pleasure it was. I felt like I've known them forever, so sweet. I love when I'm referred by someone, not even knowing who it was... Thanks #facebook! We had to cancel our original date as it rained ALL day long. I was worried about the next date as it was chilly and a bit cloudy, but as you can see the photos turned out beautiful. I couldn't have asked for better models and those two little girls were all smiles & giggles. Thank you for allowing me a fun day with your family. Hope to see them again in the future and watch them grow.
So the Wright Family are no strangers to my photography. I again had the pleasure of doing senior photos for both Brandon & Maddie. Maddie was one of my senior reps for the Class of 2018, what fun she was! I love when I can venture out and get to know the entire clan. I've enjoyed working with Melissa, what a great supportive mom she is. I know we've had her following us all over to get that perfect shot. I loved this day, even though it was one of the first cold days of the season... the sun was shining and we got to capture that in photos. It was great meeting dad & the youngest (thinking ahead for his senior photos, ha) Thanks guys for once again allowing me to capture your photos... and I loved your Christmas card <3
This was a fun session as I got to work with not only a returning client, but family friends. I've been blessed to have taken Christopher's and Madeline's senior photos, as well has having Madeline as a senior rep. I was excited when they suggested a local tree farm for their holiday/family photos. Thank you Westman's Tree Farm, your place is just beautiful! I love when a family wants to include their family pet in the photos, oh my was Phoebe just the sweetest. She was in heaven running all over, but always made it back when it was her time to be photographed. I think she is just a natural in front of the camera. Another cold day, but it was end of November in Michigan... but we all survived. I love the outfit coordination and the scarf for Phoebe! We have been trying for a couple years to get family photos, I'm so happy we were able to make it happen this year. Thanks Kaufman's as always it was a joy working with you and all those big smiles!
Another new family to TLP, who came with a referral. I can't say THANK you enough to those who believe in my work and trust to refer me to friends and family. When Marianne contacted me for family photos, she knew exactly what she wanted. Then she said she had 5 young children, all boys at that. I was a bit nervous, I won't lie as you never know how a group that size and young with work out. I was so impressed by them all, sure we had a few tears, maybe a melt down, but they made for the best bloopers to look back on years from now. I tried to memorize all the names before I got there, I think I only mixed them up a couple times. I felt so welcomed by them all and loved that we were able to shoot in their new home & around the property. At the end we did a few sweet photos with the newest addition, I love to capture that moment when all is calm. What a beautiful family and hats off to mom and dad for holding it all together (oh grandma too!) Did I mention I got introduced to Leo, their Christmas elf? Yeah, he was being silly hanging up on the chandelier in the entry way, ha! Thank you Mustchler Family for inviting me in to your home and letting me capture some beautiful memories. I hope to work with you again and watch the boys grow!
Until 2018, I leave it here. I look forward to a new year, filled with new memories to be made. Thank you 2017 for being so good to me, and allowing me so many creative moments. I've enjoyed every moment, every client and every great adventure. Here's a toast to a new year, I look forward to seeing what 2018 has in store for us! Cheers!
