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. :)
