It was a sunny morning in Ann Arbor, when I met Katherine and Matt for their engagement/coaching session.  We had great light, and it was early enough the heat hadn't set in, yet.   Here are a few of my favorites from the session.

Okay, so I have this new website and I realized I really need a headshot of myself on one of these pages.  Dread, pit in stomach, seriously, really, is there any way I can put this off? Confession: I'm always behind the camera, in large part, to avoid being the one in front of it. Regardless, the website needed the photo. So, one day, fresh from a new cut/color—thanks to the fantastic Kirstyn
