Exhibit Project ~ Beginnings… Rochester MI Photographer April 12, 2013

Although days like today severely diminish my convictions, I do believe that Spring is coming.  It’s been a busy winter here.  I kept waiting to catch up with myself.  My IT jobs were busy at times then taxes took me wayyyy too long (I WILL be better organized next year but that’s another story), and life as a mother to three is usually never too slow.  I wanted to focus a lot of my photography business.  My to-do list is a mile long.  I love checking into new products both for clients and for myself (enter better tax tracking software that I purchased!).  I’ve been organizing my hard drive and moving files to a NAS drive.  Go ahead and ask me if you have a techie question and maybe I can help!  I’ve also taken some on-line workshops to improve many aspects of my business.  One workshop was ReStart with Jasmine Star and it was amazing and inspirational.  I became involved in an off-shoot project headed up by Sharina Wunderink.  She explains the Exhibit Project in this blog post.  Basically a group of 36 photographers will post on the 12th of every month.  Yes, I’m starting to work on mine on the 11th!  Hey, better than the 21st, right!  We will follow monthly themes and share stories and inspirations, as we like to do best, through photography.  Although, I must say that in speaking and writing I do get to use my native sarcasm more so I’ve gotta have that too.  Guess that’s why I like to blog!

The first theme is Beginnings.  We haven’t seen much of the beginnings of Spring here in Michigan.  Ok, I do have crocuses but that is about it!  Bring on the forsythia and red buds!  So if I can’t showcase a glorious Michigan Spring, then my next thought was coffee!  It’s one of my first thoughts each day.   I decided to showcase a more powerful Beginning and share some newborn images.  I love these sessions I think it’s time for some more sessions like this!

Cuteness, from his curls to his toes – Rochester Michigan Photographer March 29, 2012

This little guy started out adorable when I met him at his newborn session last year.  Then I saw him a few more times, including a fun session with his cousins from out of town and holiday mini-session.  Well, last week he showed up as cute as ever with a head full of adorable curls.  I love those curls and I know I’m not alone.  We had some fun with the radio flyer bike and some balloons then changed up the scene for a cake smash session.  Don’t worry, I’ll be sharing those soon!

 

 

 

 

Couldn’t resist sharing… ~ Rochester, MI newborn photographer November 7, 2011

I’m letting Hadley take cuts in line. How could I resist such sweetness. I think I need to bend the rules and share newborns even if it’s not their turn for editing. I just HAD to edit one! I’m so glad my photo-friend came over to indulge in a little studio time with her newest baby girl – Hadley Grace! We had such fun coming up with different set-ups in the studio, with so many goodies to choose from. I loved holding little Hadley as much as I had fun behind the camera. She was so tiny and so sweet. She was all swaddled up and snoozed on me for a while – so peaceful. Ok, I could gush about her for a long time but I better get on to sharing.
