The journey from Colorado back to the midwest has been full of so much greatness, it’s hard to put it into words. Starting in December of 2013, I began offering sessions in Michigan. Since I was already home for the holidays, I figured those who wanted to brave the cold-and-gloomy-winters for photos shouldn’t be stopped. 😉 At the beginning of 2014, I made it a business goal to travel back to Michigan at least 2-3 times a year to offer sessions. And then we got the news that we were relocating and I was going to officially become a resident Indianapolis photographer.
Now, making it back to Michigan to visit family and friends is a breeze. It’s a mere 4-hour drive and I’m able to offer sessions in the kinder seasons. What I didn’t count on was that Michigan is still experiencing those spring rains, as I mentioned last week. So on Mother’s Day, I set out to document one of my favorite (and most photogenic) families… and one of my original clients. It was the perfect day to celebrate Jackson’s birthday, and Anna’s second mother’s day… time really does fly.
Of course, we got rained out, but only after getting in a half hour of shooting at my personal favorite location. I’m pretty sure there isn’t a bad picture of this family anywhere… not even in the many files on my backup drives from over the years. That’s what happens when you’re truly happy, comfortable, and head-over-heels in love. <3
This. <3 <3 <3
I’m going to see these guys in June for a re-schedule of our rained-out-session, and I’m willing to bet that by then this little guy will be walking without help. 😉
Anna’s friend, Amy, did an AMAZING job putting together this chalkboard for Jackson’s birthday shots. I love that these have become a trend. I grew up with a baby book that documented these details in writing and you could put a photo next to the info, but with it all in one, these make the perfect framed memory of baby milestones. Awesome job, Amy!
See if you can follow along… ‘the itsy bitsy spider…’
‘crawled up the water spout…’
… you know the rest!
This shot seriously makes the entire session. We’ll be shooting again with this wagon from my own childhood, but his face and the rain coming down just says it all. <3
