My North Magazine Feature!

I was so excited to have Daisy and Greg's fabulous wedding at The Homestead featured in My North Magazine. I finally got my copies in the mail and wanted to share the feature!

Also, for any of you brides getting married in Northern Michigan, this magazine had some great write-ups about venues and vendors in the area. You can order a copy from their website here.

The Gould's : : Family Session

A few months ago Amber contacted me about doing a family session with her, her husband and little son Brady when they would be in town for Christmas. We met downtown on a chilly, snowy afternoon last week and played in the snowflakes. Brady wasn't totally feeling the session, as the little guy was just getting over a cold, but we rolled with it and made a second session at the studio (the new studio! more on that later!) a few days later.

Wishing this sweet family safe travels back to DC!

2009 Bid for Bachelors and Bachelorettes

On Saturday, February 8, is the 2009 Bid for Bachelors and Bachelorettes event to benefit the Friends and Families of Cystic Fibrosis. This is an event and charity I've been a part of for nearly a decade now, and one that is truly helping those in West Michigan that suffer with this disease.

Last night was the first night of head shots at the studio and it was so fun to meet some of the guys and girls that are going to be a part of this event. Keep checking back for more updates!

For more information on this event, you can follow the Friends of Families of CF blog.

Julie Strating : : Makeup Artist


A few months ago I teamed up with Julie to do a photo shoot featuring her amazing makeup artistry and many of you asked how to get in contact with her. Well, I'm excited to share that she has her fabulous website up and running:


Julie is booking now for 2009 and my guess is she will book up fast. If you are looking for a makeup artist for your wedding next summer, give her a call.
