Josh and Rochelle

Josh and Rochelle are a fun, cute, young couple. Rochelle was actually the Jr. Bride's maid at my wedding. I can't believe she is now engaged and getting married! Congratulations and I can't wait until next August!

These were taken at Roseville's fireworks last weekend. The boys love fireworks and had a blast. Tony bought them light up swards that they pretended were light sabers. We're still on our Star Wars kick;) This 4th of July will be lots of fun! I just love the photo of Anthony watching.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo

I'm know I'm partial, but my niece Paige is so stinkin' cute. This is her dance recital. She danced to two songs this one was from Cinderella. She is the second from the left. She was off key and made up her own moves, and for a large part of the dance just waived to the audience. At the end she said, "Thank you, thank you very much," loud enough for the entire crowd to hear her. She is just too much!

Princess Ashley

When I was little I did not like wearing dresses, but I always thought my sisters looked beautiful when they wore one. You can just tell Ashley feels as beautiful as she looks in her princess dress. She was having fun spinning and twirling, singing and dancing and of course playing hide and seek. Can you find her?

Beautiful Girls

With a wife this beautiful and a little girl as cute as can be, how will he manage another girl? I don't know how, but I'm sure he'll find a way. Here are a few from our session on Sunday. Enjoy your sneak peak!

Trash the Dress

I know lots of you are horrified, but really why keep the dress? You've got your guy. You've already used it. (Believe me your daughter does not want it! Don't believe me, why didn't you wear your mother's dress then?!?) Do you really have room to spare in your closet to store it? It's a fun end to an exciting time in your life and lets face it, you get to wear it once more and feel like a princess. I have tons of ideas for Trash the Dress sessions. Your new husband can come too! It doesn't have to be limited to only wedding dresses. You can also use your prom dress! A free session to the first taker! Call if you dare 586-855-6549. I promise it will be fun.

More Still

Sorry if you're already tiered of her, but I have over 700 photos from one day of sessions. I told her it was more like photographing a wedding than a maternity. First thing in the morning we had our Urban session, then lunch, then took a short break for the baby shower and then a studio session. I'm telling you she wore me out! It was fun though.
Love you kid!

Bitter Sweet

I look forward to the time Cait is home. I hate that she lives so far away, I hate that we have to say good bye, I hate that the next time I see her will probably be Christmas, I hate that the next time I see her she will be a mommy because I wont be THERE for her, I hate that I will be sad for days and Anthony and Vinny will miss seeing her, but I am so happy she found Cameron. If she has to leave us, at least it is to be with someone who loves her as much as we do.

The last few visits have been harder and harder for me to let her go. She can not fly anymore because she's getting late in her pregnancy. I am really scared to fly, but I'm trying to make arrangements to see Jake after he is born. I am excited to meet him and hold him and of course spoil my first nephew! It still seems like a long time away.

All of this and she isn't even gone yet...
Cameron, can't we keep her? jk sorta

Hot Mama!

This is my sister again! I had to stay up and keep editing because the second or third part of the session was too hot to leave alone. (We took a few hour break in between photo sessions for the baby shower.) I love fun edgy sexy maternity photos. These photos are all that and then some!

Cait thank you for being so brave and letting me try new things out with you! Love you! J

Cait and Cam's Maternity

As promised, this is my sister Cait and her husband Cameron. They were in town for a wonderful baby shower my mom had planned for them. (More of that later.) Here is one of our sessions. Yes plural (she is kind of a pain in the you know where.) Anyway, here are some of the around the Urban photos. Thanks for taking a peek!

PS Cameron and Julia, it was such a nice visit and I was sorry to see you leave! Take care! Hope you had a safe flight home. We're keeping Cait as long as we can;)

In Love

I LOVE this image! I don't know how it was missed for their sneak peek, but WOW! Anastasia is beautiful and her personality just shines through. She is a treat to photograph.

I love the colors in these images. The green grass, their sky blue clothes and the earthy browns are perfect for an outdoor portrait. Isn't this a nice looking family? I love Jackson's stunning red hair and Sophia's gorgeous blue eyes. After all of this crazy weather, we had a beautiful day today.
all images taken at Heritage Garden in Shelby Twp.

And oh so cute! Look at those beautiful blue eyes and that smile... This is the third time I've had the chance to photograph him and I always love his photos! He is such a happy baby. Enjoy your sneak peek.

The Stanley Cup

Was at the Detroit Tigers game on Saturday! It was such a great way to start the game. The game started out slow, but kept getting increasingly exciting and in the bottom of the 8th A GRAND SLAM! The crowd went crazy and the Tigers won 8 to 4.

Mud and Boys

They just go together. I was planting flowers on one side of my garden and watering the other. I looked over and saw this. I laughed, shook my head and grabbed my camera. He was so proud of himself! Notice Vinny thinks Anthony is crazy and wants no part of it. Anthony is just like his dad and Vinny is just like me;)
