Michael and Josie

Have you ever wanted to share something but you can’t find the right words? Like this adorable couple here… I took these photos over a month ago but I haven’t blogged about them yet, not because I wasn’t excited to share the photos but because… well… to be perfectly honest, sometimes it’s really hard to Read More

Yanna’s Senior Portraits

Yanna is a foreign exchange student from France, here in St. Joseph, with the same exchange program we host our students through.  When her host mom contacted me to ask if I was available to do a Senior Portrait session less than a week before portraits were due for the Yearbook, we knew we had Read More

New York City in December

Since I was 7 or 8 years old, I have dreamed of going to New York City. It represented everything I could dream of; art, musical theater, and DANCE!  I used to want to live there. I dreamed of becoming a professional dancer and joining the NYC Ballet or becoming a Radio City Rockette… of course, I Read More

Rusbasan Family

I’ve been home from New York City for about 12 hours now, and I didn’t get this post prepared before I left, so it’s going to short and sweet. Beth was kicking herself for putting off their family portraits till so late in the year, but I have to say it worked out quite well! The Read More

Whytne’s Senior Portraits

This year I have done quite a bit of research on the best ways to advertise my photography business and get my name out to potential clients. While word-of-mouth will probably always be my best and most reliable source of advertisement, I want to make sure I’m doing everything I can to effectively put myself Read More

Kaley’s Senior Portraits

Boy, life has a way of taking priority over blogging about photo sessions! Where did the past few weeks go? Why am I so tired? My fingers type pretty fast but my brain thinks MUCH faster! Since my last post, I dressed my three kids up in cheap Halloween costumes from Meijer, helped in classroom parties and went Read More

McKay’s Senior Portraits

There is something incredibly exciting (and scary) about Senior Year! Graduating from high school is such an enormous turning point in every student’s life, regardless of what their plans are to do next! I think that’s one of the reasons I love doing Senior portraits so much. I have really been struggling to blog lately. Read More

Eric’s Senior Portraits

Another school year, another student! At the beginning of summer, I shared about hosting my first foreign exchange student and I mentioned that our reasons for choosing to host were: To give an invaluable opportunity to a high school student; to bring another culture into our home; and to teach our kids to welcome, love, and Read More

Andrew’s Headshots

Oy with the poodles already! The past few weeks have been pure madness! My in-laws came for their annual summer visit which overlapped with the arrival of our new foreign exchange student. I had to make the transition from host mode to host parent mode, very quickly, and get my new 16-year-old ready for his first day of American Read More

Dancers at Grand Mere State Park

Last summer I took three dancers to Grand Mere State Park for a group session and called it Dancers On The Nature Trail.  It was so much fun that I decided to do it again this summer. It can be tough to coordinate a group session around multiple busy schedules. I had five dancers lined Read More
