Families & Children

This past summer we took a family trip to New York City (well…workcation for me but it was amazing nonetheless). While there, I just had to photograph my beauties on the Brooklyn Bridge for a fun children session. The background was stunning with great views of the city all lit up but I didn’t quite […]

I love these family photos at Luton Park. Their outfits, the golden field, soft filtered light and the beautiful people! You wouldn’t believe how windy it was (and so, so cold) but we decided to make it work and start getting used to cold weather here in Michigan. I know that wind can be a […]
