It's always a good time of year to come into the studio and get some great shots. Just because we're using a backdrop and studio lights, doesn't mean we can't get really creative and spontaneous. Here are a few favorites from a recent session with this adorable family!

It was very chilly when we braved the weather for a quick mini-session in downtown Birmingham. We agreed that this needed to be quick and to keep moving! So, our plan was to shoot it as if I were  covering the story of "cold temps don't slow down families in the city" for the newspaper, and they just so happened to be the family in every shot.     Here are

  We had such a great time photographing this wedding. Anna and I got amazing photos everywhere ... from Courtney's house getting ready, at the church, down in Eastern Market, and at the DAC ... in the old phone booths,  the ballroom and on the rooftop.  Here are a few favorites of mine, but there were so many, it was difficult to choose!

December 4, 2013 Calvin is 3-months old

In three short months, this cutie pie has grown so big!  During this shoot at his home, Calvin was taking in everything with his adorable eyes ... especially me with my camera. There were a few shots that were so "in the moment"  I wanted to share. Isn't this what a little one does at three months?  ... look at everything intently, touch things, explore, respond, and just take it all in

I was so happy to see all of the gorgeous photos from Lena & Dan's wedding!  I knew there would be a ton of photos, because we were really lucky with locations, weather, and fun (not to mention beautiful) people to photograph.     Getting ready took place at the Westin, Renaissance Center.  The ceremony was at Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral, and the reception was at the Rattlesnake Club.

Michelle and Adam love Royal Oak, so we did an engagement session walking around — catching light and interesting corners and alleys to use.   Here are a few of my favorites from the session.    I am looking forward to photographing the wedding!  Congrats, you two!

Congratulations Carrie and Chris!  It was a beautiful day for this couple's wedding at Orchard Lake St. Mary Catholic Church and a reception at Pine Lake Country Club. So many great photos, it was really hard to select which few I wanted to create this mini-alubm for a sneak peek. Enjoy!

Here are a few of my personal favorites from a wedding recently photographed by MNP Associate Photographer, Anna Ruggirello. I think she beautifully captured the essence of their very unique park-set wedding along the beach in Lexington, Michigan. Carolyn and Dan wanted an unobtrusive, photojournalistic photographer to make sure they had great photos.  Anna delivered! Well done Anna ...  and congrats Dan and Carolyn.
