holiday sparkle mini sessions ~ registration open!

I’m ready to sign you up for the 2014 holiday sparkle mini-sessions! I’m soooo excited for this! What a great way to christen my brand new studio space in the Brighton Howell area! I selected a neutral but festive set for this year’s sessions. My models wore cream and gold, but you can dress your kids in color as well.

Packages include the session fee and start at $158. There are seven packages with the top one including everything but the kitchen sink at $1300. There is sure to be the perfect package to meet your holiday needs.

These sessions not only focus on prints, but I’ve got lots of premium products available, which is highly unusual for a mini-session! Some of the packages include a wall portrait credit, image boxes with 10 mounted prints, some even have digital files. Regardless of what package you choose, I’m including a web-sized file of any images you order, so you can share them on social media or simply keep them on your phone.

I’m debuting two brand new products that I am super excited about – metal ornaments are sold ala carte and are sure to be a favorite gift idea. I’m also debuting the Canvas Mini Collection – a set of three adorable mini canvases. They come in 4×4 inch size, 5×5, 6×6 and 5×7. How much fun would they be to bring out every year during the holidays?! It would be like opening a new gift every year!

Call me at (313) 530-1051 or email me at to sign your kids up! I’ll get all your information including payment for the minimum package, and you’ll select your date and time. At that time, I will email you a complete pricing guide that shows you all seven packages, holiday card prices, and special products. I’ll even include some tips on how to make this session more successful.

There is also a referral gift for anyone who signs up for a slot AND refers a friend who also signs up. I’ll design a 3×3 inch mini accordion book just for you from your kids’ session. It’s perfect for your purse or to give to grandparents as a holiday gift. These accordion books are not for sale, so the only way you can get your hand on one is by referring. In fact, I’d appreciate if you can click the “share” button at the bottom of this post to share on Facebook. If you know someone that would be interested, just type in their name when you share.

Please call me to secure your spot today!

“what to wear” wednesday – young family

This blustery October can’t stay this way all month, can it? I have an extended family session later this week and I just know we’re going to freeze our bums off!

Remember, clothing doesn’t have to be super matchy – this family get up seems so effortless, yet together, the clothing looks great. Army green is always great this time of year, and navy/white stripes are still being shown. Remember, don’t try too hard and you’ll rock your session!OCT 2014 What To Wear 2

office makeover – clean means creative!

Okay, I am ashamed to show you my “before and after” images of my home office. It’s a wonder I got anything creative done in this place! This is the location where I communicate with clients by phone and email, edit their images, create wall concepts with my design software, and brainstorm all the cool things I want to do in my business. Looking back, I realize why my creativity had decreased in recent months. I had other priorities in my life that did NOT include a peaceful zen in my office!

Just over a month ago I began a six week online class called “Bonjourganize Bootcamp” with 29 other photographers put on by Kelli France of Chic Critique Forum.  We’ve been working through getting all aspects of our lives organized. Since we started I’ve developed weekly plans, started using bite-sized pieces of time to get through big projects, implemented meal plans that Lauren can help me with, and most recently, I revamped my office.

I can’t help but think that my creative juices will flow much easier now in this new space. In fact, it only took me a few moments to write this post, which is AMAZING!

What can you do to bring calm and organization to your life?

sweet logan

When I was young, the more siblings in a family, the less the youngest was photographed. Thank goodness baby Logan was born now, for he had a morning in the spotlight. No brother or sisters nearby, just Logan. And what a treat for me!

Logan is four weeks old, which is on the older side for a newborn portrait session, but he decided modeling was right up his alley. He rocked his Frank Sinatra hat (brought by mommy) and, when we thought the session was done, he asked to pose in the turtle outfit mom brought! [okay, at that point I may have been hearing things]. In any event, he was so sweet to capture, and I really enjoyed hanging out with his laid back mama.
