Just a Reminder... It's Family Portrait Time

Take a moment and capture a lifetime. Portraits can be created in our studio, or on location.

Before time passes before your eyes and you wonder where those years went, give us a call today to arrange for a no obligation consultation appointment. ...We can even do it over the phone, if you prefer.

Congratulations to Michael and Gaia Klass who were the highest bidders on the Family Portrait Gift Certificate that we donated to the LPE auction.

New Additions Portrait Program

Our newest product offering is a brand new, baby and children portrait program which documents your baby's first year in artistic portraiture.

For your investment of *$575.00, you will receive four portrait sessions at the following ages: 3 month, 6 month, 9 month and 12 month. From each session you may choose 1 5x7 of your favorite pose.

At the conclusion of the first year, we will create a 12x24 wall panel which includes one pose from each session, illustrating the changes in your baby's first year of life. You may choose a different pose than the one that you previously selected.

In addition, you will receive two additional portrait sessions at NO CHARGE. The first session is designed as a newborn session to be created within the first four weeks of life. The second free session is a family portrait session to be created at the end of the program, showing the relationship between mother, father and baby.

Purchased seperately this "package" is a $1745 value. For a limited time, you can save $1170 by signing up for this program before December 31, 2006.

This is our way of helping you to preserve “life” and helping you to save a little money at the same time.

For those of you who are past the “newborn stage” and have children that may be a little older, you can still take advantage of this portrait program. Just use the four sessions within a two year period and you will receive one additional children’s portrait session and one family portrait session at no charge.

This program replaces our Children’s Portrait Club which was discontinued in 2003.

*Per child. Must be prepaid. 6% Michigan sales tax will be added.
Framing also available

Senior Portraits for Today's Generation

Today's high school senior demands more than just ordinary portraits. We are excited about staying on the cutting edge of photography and offering more than the typical yearbook photographer can offer.

Seniors from all local high schools have the option to have their portraits created here. Unfortunately, many of the school photographers lead you to believe that you have to go there, or you won't be in the yearbook.

That is simply not true.


Check out one of our recent sessions that has a feeling of a fashion model. View the Slide Show

Our 2nd Wedding Anniversay

I can't believe it! September 19th is here! It was two wonderful years ago, today that Tammi and I were married.

It was a gorgeous day at the Pine Knob Mansion and everything was so perfect. I wish we could do it again:)

We've been so busy finishing up our project for Deloitte and Touche that I almost forgot!!! Yikes! -Perish the thought.

Well, I think we'll go out for a nice dinner tonight and celebrate quietly at home.

Busy Week of Business Portraits

I feel as if I'm neglecting my Blogger-responsabilites. We have been busy updating the business portraits for Deloitte & Touche at their Detroit office in the Renaissance Center.

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu is an organization of member firms around the world devoted to excellence in providing professional services and advice, focused on client service through a global strategy executed locally in nearly 150 countries. With access to the deep intellectual capital of 120,000 people worldwide, Deloitte delivers services in four professional areas — audit, tax, consulting, and financial advisory services — and serves more than one-half of the world’s largest companies, as well as large national enterprises, public institutions, locally important clients, and successful, fast-growing global growth companies.
(I took that right from their website)

We're excited that a multi-national company like Deloitte has put their confidence and trust in us to create portraits for their Partners.

If you call the studio this week and get our voice mail .... that's probably why.

Leave a message and we'll get back to you!!

Summer's Bat Mitzvah

Summer celebrated her bat mitzvah in style last night.

Music was in the air at the beautiful Orchard Lake Country Club, where Summer flawlessly recited her Haftorah and had a great party with her friends and family.

The decorations and "Party Patrol" were provided by Dena Raminick of Party Pieces, LLC (partypieces

Tammi and I love working at Orchard Lake C.C. because Diane and the staff there are always so friendly and accomodating.

Even though the weather felt more like October, we were still able to utilize the beautiful grounds of the country club. Summer and her parents braved the cold for the outdoor photo's... goose bumps and all!

Mazel Tov Summer!

Erin's Sr. Portrait session

When you've been in this business long enough, you witness the inception of a family and then how that family grows and changes.
Of course, I will never be old enough to know about that ;)

We have had the pleasure of watching Erin grow from a cute little girl into a beautiful young woman.

Erin is a senior at Farmington High School and is involved in a bunch of activities. She golfs and dances, just to name a few.
We wanted her portraits to reflect some of her interests, so we came up with these images as a part of her session.

Kristi and Shane - The Wedding

I can't believe that September is already here. Where did the summer go? Soon the kids will be back in school, the leaves will be changing color and winter will be well on its way. OK, I have to stop now because I'm making myself cry. ;)

A couple of weeks ago we shared the day with Kristi and Shane and their families.

As we drove to Addison Oaks, the weather wasn't looking to promising for an outdoor wedding; it was muggy, there was rain and high humidity... typical Michigan weather.

When we arrived, the rain had stopped so the wedding went on as planned... outdoors. There's an old saying that if it rains on your wedding day, it's good luck... AND if it doesn't rain on your wedding day it's also good luck.
Who comes up with this stuff? (they must live in Michigan)

Kristi looked beautiful in her gown and Shane looked so dapper in his White tux and top hat. We got some really great images and since it didn't rain, we were even able to follow the couple on their horse and carriage ride. What fun!!

Here are a few photo's from the day.
