Tessa + Matthew {Getting Married!} | Saginaw Photographer

Can I just say that I ADORE this couple? Tessa and Matthew are just so incredibly fun and totally don’t take things too seriously, which made doing this session so amazing! They are getting married next month (I think less than a month now?!) and just wanted to do a fun session in Saginaw since they’re in the process of figuring out where they’ll live once they’re married. They already had gorgeous engagement photos done with their wedding photographer in the winter but since the weather was nice, they were feeling nostalgic for home, and I was going to be in town, it just made sense that we do another session. Of course. And who doesn’t love some beautiful photos?! I just know these two beautiful people are going to have an amazing and long lasting marriage with their deep faith and deep devotion to each other. Being around them just made me happy, and that is truly the best kind of love. Thank you guys for having me shoot your photos! I had such an amazing time and wish you a lifetime of happiness and love!! You deserve it!




















Christina {Senior} Class of 2018 | Saginaw Photographer

Well, Christina had found this awesome location and then…it rained. And rained. And rained. And flooded. And the awesome location was no longer accessible without a boat. SO….we pulled an audible and managed to utilize some cool locations in downtown Saginaw. It was a beautiful day, despite the rain that had started late the night before and continued into the morning, and an awesome session with a gorgeous young lady! Last year, when I did her sister’s photos she came along to shlep clothing and drive us around the back areas of their property, so it was fitting that her adorable younger sister, came along to help for hers! Thank you Christina for being such an amazing model and to Catherine for all your help holding the reflector! Hope to take yours in a couple years too! Enjoy!














Madison {Senior} Class of 2018 } Saginaw Photographer

Despite the heat and humidity, Madison was cool as a cucumber and a complete natural in front of the camera! I swear this girl could be a model! She is absolutely gorgeous and has a stunning personality to match that made working with her and her adorable mom so amazing! Between her great smile and the fantastic lighting I was totally geeking out the whole time – they probably thought I was insane. lol Thank you Madison and Catherine for the wonderful session and for putting up with my craziness! Enjoy!

















Keegan {Senior} Class of 2018 | Saginaw Photographer

Taking Keegan’s photos was a little crazy for me, mostly because I kept thinking, “How is this kid a senior already?!” I’ve known Keegan since before he turned 2 when I started dating his brother. Now, 15 years later, it is so cool to see what a handsome and awesome young man he has become. It was also throwing me off a bit with how much he looks like his older brothers – yea, yea, I know they’re brothers but I mean really… Patrick and Sean tagged along for moral support and to drive us around on the crazy muggy evening that we took the photos. Thanks, Keegan, for putting up with me trying to make you laugh, taking a bajillion photos of you, and for being an awesome person that I’m proud to say that I’m related to! Happy Senior Year!

Sophie {Senior} Class of 2018 | Saginaw Photographer

I have had the pleasure of working with this beautiful family for 5 of their 7 children and I couldn’t feel more honored!! Sophie is absolutely gorgeous and such an absolute sweetheart. She and her mom found this amazing garden out in Hemlock – think Dow Gardens but way better – and I was in heaven! We lucked out and got some beautiful weather as well, which was a nice reprieve from the insane humidity of the week before. Thank you McConnell family for continually sharing your family with me! Enjoy!

I’m going to let these photos speak for themselves…this boy. Oh. My. God. I can’t even handle this kind of cuteness. Those chubby little cheeks, big brown eyes, and that smile that makes me want to snuggle his little face! EEK!! Colleen and Marc, you guys should be proud of this handsome little man! You are such a beautiful family!! Enjoy!

Kathy + Sean {Engagement} | Seattle Photographer

ks-151
I could not be more blessed to have this beautiful lady and her handsome new fiance in my life. I first met Kathy when she and Patrick were in the MBA program at ND a couple years ago and my life has never been the same. And it’s even better now that she’s a part of our Seattle family, and that Sean is moving here to join us too (well her mostly…but us too). You are two amazing people and I’m so happy to be able to call you both friends! Thank you for braving the rain, cold, and wind for your session and for giving me the honor of getting to take your engagement session. I had a blast!

Brady + Eliza {Children} | Saginaw Photographer

Another year, another great session with my most photographed clients! The session with Brady and Eliza is always amazing and I look forward to getting to spend time with them and forcing them to like each other for an hour each year (though lets be honest, it’s not too hard since these two are such a sweet pair!). I can never get over how big these two get and it makes me feel so old when I think back to our first session together when Eliza was newly born – and now look at her all grown up and full of sass! I love them!! Thank you Christyn for another fabulous session! You always make it absolute perfection! So wonderful seeing you guys again! Enjoy!

Melissa + Wyatt {Family} | Saginaw Photographer

wm-166
After working with the adorable duo last year, I was beyond thrilled when Melissa contacted me again to do photos again! Wyatt is quite possibly the smartest 2.5 year old I’ve ever met and in between photos he blew me away with his ability to name and SPELL his colors (among other words)! Being the lucky little boy that he is, he’s also getting a super amazing treehouse that his uncle and grandpa are building for him, and thus being around the construction, knows the names of a whole slew of tools – level, measuring tape, saw, screws, brackets, hammer – the kid just floored me with his knowledge and his amazing little personality. He led us around the property and showed me where the nut trees and squishy pumpkins were – even though he did want me to stay back and wait while he and his mom went and that he “would come back for me.” lol Thank you Melissa and Wyatt for an amazing session! It was such a pleasure working with you guys again and I hope to work with you again next year!! At the rate he’s going, he’s going to be wowing me with his calculus skills by then! 🙂 Enjoy!
