Busy, Busy, Busy

I've been really busy! Fist both of my boys birthdays and then Tony's 30th, I swear he thinks his birthday is all week long. Then I photographed the homecoming of the Marines at Selfridge - Big honor and lots of fun. I have finally finished burning the CD's and I am now in the process of packaging them. Then my sister decided to come home for a 9 day visit. I spent a lot of time with her since I will not be joining the rest of my family to visit her in Hawaii in July. Then I traveled to Chicago to meet with The Misty Woodward. From Chicago, we traveled to Kansas City, her hometown and photographed her clients. TEN sessions in 2 days! It was a photo marathon. I did learn a few tricks and was happy to hear how many of my photos she will be showing her clients. As soon as I upload the photos I’ll share some. Then Tony, the boys and I went up north to my parents place with my sister’s family and my mom and dad.

Now I hope to get back into the swing of things although summer is here and this is usually how summer goes, busy, busy, busy.

Drew is one!

This adorable little boy is my friend's son. He didn't like getting his clothes changed, but besides that he was an angle. He love looking at the bubbles his Dad was making.

To all of the service members and their families,
I am having a problem with the link for my email on my website right now. If you are trying to reach me please call or leave a message here. Thank you for you patience and understanding.

Misty Woodward

I will be visiting Misty Woodward, once again. She is a phenomenal photographer and a fun person with a huge heart. She has opened her home to me and helped me get my business on the right track. She has been a wonderful mentor.
I will be traveling to Chicago and stay the night with her family before we leave in the morning to go to her hometown of Kansas City. I will be assisting her in several photo sessions and picking her brain the entire car ride. I will get to see how she works and take some of my own photos of these lucky families. It will be a great learning experience for me. I can't thank her enough. I'll share some of my photos when I get back.

Hi all! I have finished editing the photos from the homecoming at Selfridge. I still have to compile the files and burn the 100 CDs. I will still need a little more time before they will be ready for distribution.

As I mentioned before my sister Amanda went with me. I had an extra camera so when families were reuniting she took some pretty great photos herself. Here are some of my favorite photos she captured.

Thanks again kid!

This is my sister Cait or Catherine as she likes to be called these days, sorry kid I just can't do it. She was home for a visit while my brother in law is a Marine in Iraq. When she talked about her trip, she said she would be home for 9 days the longest visit since she had moved to Hawaii. It seemed like a long time when we were talking, but as we all know time flies. I drove her to the airport this morning and I've been crying ever since. She cried too and said this was the hardest goodbye. I hated to let her go. I didn't want to stop hugging her. I'm not allowed to drive her there anymore;) Anyway I capture these images on her short stay in Michigan. It was nice to work with an adult for a change. She listened to direction much better than my boys do! I already miss her and can't wait until Christmas!

Hello there! I just wanted to let you know my website is up and running. Please check it out at and let me know what you think. I will be making a few minor adjustments in the next few days and I'd love to hear your opinions.

I want to send a message to the service members and their families, I am still working on compiling all of the photos I took of the homecoming. I have tons of images to go through. I retouch each image myself to be sure it is the best quality I can provide. I'm about 1/2 way through editing the images and then it will take some time for me to burn the cd's. I will keep my blog updated on the progress as I have received a few phone calls regarding the cds. Please do not hesitate to call or email me I just wanted to let you know I have not forgot about you and I am still working on this project. I am as anxious to give you these images as you are to get them. For now I leave you with a few more of my recent favorites.
