13 ounces or less

We've (I mean my mom) has sent all kinds of elaborate invitations in the mail. We do send lots of letters to Grandma, Grandpa and Great Grandma. It's a fun way for the boys to practice their writing and the Grandparents send fun things back to them like stickers. They love reading the response letters. The boys and I have mailed a few of these cool gifts out. From the top photos are of colored pencils and rolled up coloring sheets, fun bingo packets, sidewalk chalk and silly putty and newspaper.  How much fun are these?  My boys actually asked if they could send one to each other.  What would you mail?

This is not my original idea.  Here is a link to the site.  13 ounces or less

Senior Photographer - Shelby Township, Michigan

I haven't been to this particular park in quite a few years.  I forgot how beautiful it could be.  Also the gorgeous model doesn't hurt either;) 


PS This train is not on working tracks.  Walking on working tracks is dangerous and illegal and has HUGE fines.  Please do not ever put someone in harm for a photograph.

I may not be the photographer for you

If you are looking for a perfect picture, I may not be the photographer for you.  See it depends on what you think is perfect.  Do you think pressed clothes, big fake cheesy smiles and everyone wearing the same outfit is the perfect pic, than I am definitely not the photographer for you! 

If you want photos of belly laughing, missing teeth and kids just being kids... we will get along just fine.  Who cares if you can see that their pocket is sticking out?  Do you see that look on her face?  That is what it is about for me!  If your little on looses a tooth, it's part of childhood and should be documented.  No need to cancel your appointment.  Are you going to wait until it grows back to take photos?  He'll be 15 by the time he's done loosing teeth and maybe have braces by then.  Every part of being a kid should be celebrated and remembered.  Don't put it off.  Schedule your session bad hair cuts and all.

Getting as much sun in as we can - Stoney Creek Family photographer

We were trying to soak up every bit of sun while it lasts.  Here are a few of my favorites from the beautiful family beach session.
