Baby B – Photo Session

During my trip to Buffalo last week I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with this darling young man. Baby “B” is one of the happiest children I have ever met. He was a total flirt and spent the entire time smiling at us (or napping). Here are some of my favorite shots from the day. Enjoy!

Look at these beautiful eyes!

How will his parents ever say no to this face?

Even kids don’t take me seriously…

Such a Peanut!

Me and Gracie down at the Train Yard

On my trip home my siblings and I went on a photo safari in downtown Detroit. Not knowing how much longer this beautiful building will be in our lives, our first stop was the old Train Depot. We packed an old mink of my grandma’s as a prop.

We went down to find the Ambassador Bridge for some more photos

Nicole – A Photo Shoot

I finally got the guts to go out and buy myself a new lens that I am pretty sure my friends are sick of hearing about. Well, it finally arrived on my birthday and my friend Nicole was kind enough to test it out with me last weekend. Nicole just finished Law School and passed the bar this summer. Congrats Nicole and thanks for being my model for the day!

One of my favorites right here!

Wedding Workshop

That’s right, I got to spend my Sunday playing in a professional photo studio with models dressed up for a wedding! I learned a lot and can’t wait to go back for my next class in studio lighting. Here are some of my favorites from the day. (Side note: these two are actually engaged in real life!)

I really love his shoes, they definitely brought some attitude to the outfit.

The bride had some great tattoos

These last two are my favorites from the day

Gratuitous Grace

That’s right, this post is all about gratuitous photos of my sister (ok, Gus made the cut too). We decided to play with my new camera on high ISO when I was home for Thanksgiving. This is what happened. Enjoy!

This is Gus, the lab/terrier (read: most adorable terror on four paws). He decided he wanted in on the action.

The last two are my favorites…

Puerto Vallarta – Part 1

Last week I finally took my first “adult” vacation. By that I mean I went on a vacay with a good friend instead of siblings or parents.

IT.WAS.AWESOME.

Amy and I spent our days sunning ourselves, swimming and getting massages. Our nights were spent watching sunsets and having some of the most delicious food on the planet.

Below is part 1 of the photos. Another round to come later this week. Enjoy!
