Fun Family | East Lansing, Michigan Family Photographer

 Meet Lara of Lara Douglas Photography. She was the one responsible for OUR family photos this year. :) And I got the chance to shoot her cute family again this year.

Thanks for the fun session guys!!

*Disclaimer: There were some issues with Blogger making my photos looks SUPER grainy and "noisy", BUT... I figured it out!! (happy dance) So, hopefully they will look better on here from now on. ;) And I realize some of these may still look grainy/noisy. I figured it out after I posted these.

glow | ann arbor, michigan materntiy photographer

I have a small obsession with Cider Mills. ;) This one specifically..... *sigh* The light..oh the glowing, romantic, beautiful light! I've shot here more than a few times (even had my OWN family portraits taken here) and it never disappoints.

The fact that this mama was positively stunning and glowing didn't hurt either. ;) Thank you for asking me to capture this precious moment in your lives!! Congratulations again to the parents-to-be.


The last one is a little hard to read.... but the signs they are holding read: "YOU + ME = BABY" Can I tell you how excited I was when the showed me that they brought the ultrasound photo and asked if we could incorporate it somehow. Umm.. YES!! It was like they read my mind. ;)

Sparty On!

Do you know how hard it was for me to post that title??!! LOL I am a die hard U-M fan!! ;) But when this gorgeous momma called and wanted a session at MSU of her cute little family... I couldn't resist. ;)

Dad is the new assistant basketball coach and so they wanted to really play up the whole "Spartan" theme. I think we nailed it. And I can't wait to see little Miss Q in another couple months for her 2 year session. ;)

west coast family fun | howell, michigan photographer

This cutie family came all the way from California to have me photograph them! Oh... and to visit family. hee hee This is my brother-in-law and his totally gorgeous family. They were so fun to photograph. I love their laid-back-cali-style. Makes me kinda miss the west coast. Kinda. ;)

We had a great time... even though my little nephew wasn't really all that into it, we still captured some wonderful moments! EnJoY!!

Fashion Friday | howell michigan photographer

Fashion Friday... on.. Saturday.. ;) It's be a while since I've done a "Fashion Friday", so I thought I'd bring it back!

All these outfits were found at I like ON because they are A) inexpensive.. a nice plus when you are trying to outfit your whole family for photos, and B) they seem to carry similar colors in ever department. ;)

Now, don't assume that you need to buy your WHOLE family an entirely new outfit for photos. You can usually find things in your own closets that will work. I like to do these "Fashion Fridays" to help give you ideas of how to coordinate your own family. I usually like to choose one outfit and use that dress everyone else around. In this case I picked the moms outfit and pulled colors from that to create everyone's look. Another idea is to first choose an outfit for your child and dress around that. :)

It's also nice to pick interesting fabrics and textures. Ruffles, for example, are great way to add visual interest (not to mention.. useful to hide an imperfect tummy.. ;). Belts, necklaces, and scarves, are also fun additions to photos. :)
