Clelia Faith This little dear was so much to take pictures of. Her momma even gave her a bath before the photo shoot to help her relax. And she did just that. She slept the whole time and didn't even know I was taking her pictures.

Matthew & Marybeth Wedding I was honored to be part of Matthew and Marybeth's wedding in Snover Michigan in November. Since this was my first wedding I was asked to do, my friend Dianna Brubacker agreed to be the head photographer. She did a fantastic job of pulling everything together. Thanks Dianna. 

We were able to take a few pictures out at the beach after the reception. In spite of the bitter cold and a slight drizzle they all were real troopers. Enjoy a few of these wedding pictures from beautiful Michigan. 

Congratulations Matthew & Marybeth

Taylor Weaver "Frogs and Snails and puppy dog tails. Thats what little boys are made of." Taylor and his brothers did a good job for their photos. It was a very dreary rainy day so we had to take a few inside until the rain stopped.

Emerson David Zook " The littlest feet make the biggest footprints in our hearts"

Emerson was such an adorable little chap. He took my breath away the first time I saw him snuggled in his carseat. I wasn't expecting him to be so tiny. Emerson did so good while my assistant moved him around. Enjoy the pictures of this precious little one.

Melissa Horst Spring is the most beautiful time of the year! I love the warmer days, longer evenings, beautiful pink trees and lush green grass. This is getting me so excited for summer. I met Melissa at her house and we had a fun 15 - 20 min. snapping a few pictures in front of this beautiful tree in her front yard. I loved her creativity of different poses.
