A Nice Thank You

I love receiving gifts.

I got a phone call from the Friendship Circle of Michigan the other day asking for my address. I was told they wanted to send me a little thank you for my participation as a Bronze Sponsor of the Walk4Friendship.

I expected a card.

Was I ever surprised when this beautiful plaque showed up at my door!

Thanks for the gift, Friendship Circle :)

Image Selected for Book Cover

How awesome is this?

One of our bridal images was selected to grace the cover of the new PPA Showcase Collection book.

This 200 page book features a cross section of images selected to be displayed in the PPA International General Collection Exhibit.

Our image of Ann Marie Moran was selected from almost 2000 entries for its artistic and commercial appeal.

The image was created in the living room of Ann Marie's Royal Oak home. I really enjoyed the vibrant colors of the room and love the echo of the pose in the painting behind her.

Packing up the equipment to create some Awesome-tastic portraits for Pastor Henry Healey and his gorgeous family.

If I recall correctly this will be the forth consecutive year we have created family portraits at their home which in turn are used for family as well as church purposes.

Today we're driving to Ypsilanti to Christian Life Center for the session.

Here are few images from what we created last year.

Fall Portraits

We have been photographing these little cuties since they were born.

It was a much warmer day at Orchard Lake Country Club than it was the same time last year when we photographed the girls.

We had a blast playing with our little friends and then having dinner with mom and dad (Rob and Marybeth).

Can't wait to create the family portrait in Orlando next month (hint, hint).

Glad they were able to take advantage of our Fall portrait special. -You should too!

Give us a call for reduced session fee's throughout the Month of October.

Skylar's Senior Portraits

Skylar and his mom drove all the way from Rochester Hills to have his Senior portraits done.

Does this guy look like a model or what?

Lauren and Jason - Wedding at Knollwood

A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of photographing Lauren and Jason's wedding at Knollwood Country Club in West Bloomfield.

You could not ask for a better day! Blue skies, perfect temperature and low humidity. Almost unheard of for August in Michigan.

I loved the light outdoors at the club. We were fortunate enough to create all of the images prior to the ceremony in the beautiful surroundings that Knollwood offers.

Bruce at Breath of Spring did his usual amazing job with the flowers and the couple and their guests danced the night away to the sounds of Intrigue. Randy Burgess and the staff at Knollwood made the evening one to remember, while my friends at Tone-E Creative Films captured all the excitement of the evening on video.

Shira and Jordan

What a great time we had with Shira and Jordan, their friends and family.
It was a gorgeous day for a wedding at Temple Israel - But not as gorgeous as the bride.

The day was made beautifully memorable by a host of people working together including, Kathie Henk, Christine and Crew at VTI Productions and of course the party band in Detroit, Simone Vitale.

Hopefully Shira and Jordan can take a moment from their Hawaiian honeymoon to enjoy a few memories from their wedding.

The Cole Family

Ok, Ok... here's a sneak peak at the Cole family portrait we created at Kensington Metro Park.

The geese were out in force and so was what they left behind! Thank goodness we were able to avoid "most" of the evidence they left us.

We can't wait till Andrea and Kelvin come in to view the rest of the gorgeous images we created together.

...Have a great vacation guys!! :)

Whoa! I'ts been a while

So, I just realized that I haven't posted anything here ALL YEAR!

It's been a pretty active year so far. I've been traveling a lot teaching other photographers about posing and lighting.

We had a great 2 day workshop in Warren at the beginning of the month. 15 people took advantage of the hands on learning opportunity. Check out our facebook page for the cool images that are posted.

I'll be heading out to Maine next week to teach about Senior portraits. The seminar will be held in the Portland area. I have never been to Maine, so I can't wait!

In the mean time, I have a ton of new ideas for our Class of 2011 seniors.
This year's class is gonna ROCK!
