November 7, 2012 Final Dress Fitting

One of the services I offer is to photograph the final dress fitting.  It's such a special moment for a bride ... to try on her dress and make the final adjust ments, surrounded by close friends and family.  Artful moments deserve artful photos.  Just think, the next time she sees this dress is on the wedding day!    These photos were taken at The White Dress in Brighton, Michigan.

How cute is this little guy?  Had to share these great shots with the hat!

October 31, 2012 Katie and Calvin

Here's a super-mini version of my "Story of the Day" highlight reel.    Perfect for sneak peeks.  Congratulations Katie and Calvin. The wedding was at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Brighton, Michigan.  The reception was at Oak Pointe Country Club, also in Brighton.  I really like that venue because you are the only wedding or event taking place, plus the grounds are beautiful (even if the sprinklers come on just as

October 29, 2012 Fall family session

A few favorites from a Fall session with a little guy who is one of my favorites!   Such a beautiful sunny fall day in Southfield, Michigan.  This is one of the families who tried the "big-name" national photography chains out there —once—and decided never again.  So they now come to me 3 times a year to capture just how perfectly their son grows and changes.

Sneak peeks for Katie and Kris.  Congratulations! It was a beautiful wedding at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Ann Arbor, Michigan with the reception at the The Meeting House Grand Ballroom in downtown Plymouth.  My favorite spontaneous stop was at the Dairy King, in downtown Plymouth.  What a fun group!

September 28, 2012 Portraits that work

Just wrapped up another of my signature portrait sessions for a really nice, new client.  Thank you Ross Mortgage on Woodward Ave. in Royal Oak!  It's such a pleasure working with everyone there. The lighting created a great effect, making my white backdrop appear gray in the images.  I think it looks fantastic.  The horizontal cropping of a headshot is one of my personal favorites.  But, of course, I shoot it

September 18, 2012 Pink-chair worthy albums

Two beautiful albums arrived this week, ready for pick up!  Before I let these beauties out of the studio, I did a quick shoot and had them "work" the pink velvet chair. Another beautiful custom wedding album photographed and designed by Margaret Newton Photography. This wedding album is blends Margaret Newton Photography original images and page design. No two albums are the same!

Sneak peeks for Randi and Jeremy.  They were married in Oakland Township, Michigan.  The location was Myth Golf Course and it was a beautiful sunny day for an outdoor ceremony.  Congratulations!

July 27, 2012 Feeling Fabulous

People often ask, what is a "Feel Fabulous Session" and what do the photos look like.  Well, basically, it's a more sophisticated boudoir-type session. I personally dislike a lot of "boudoir" stuff out there.  It's just too "1980s-creepy-guy" for me.  It makes me think of a possible character for the next Will Ferrell movie ... "Hey there, you sexy lady.  Classy."  Classy, now there's a word.  But I digress. Here's someone who
