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

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…

A few weeks ago I purchased my first professional grade flash. With my schedule being what it is, I finally got the chance to take it out for a spin this weekend. I would like to issue a special THANK YOU to my sister and her friends who were more than willing to be my models as I experimented with various settings and got used to my new baby. Lucky for me my sister has a gorgeous group of friends so they made my job easy. Here are some of my favorites.

All the girlies

Group Shot

They were all laughing and giggling the whole time, I’m glad I got this one…




These two have been besties for a long time. I love this pic of the two of them.

Car and Tay

This one reminds me of an 80’s movie…


Pretty standard for the baby bunny…



This is my favorite – we took a bunch of these and in every single shot one of them always has their tongue out

Baby Bunny

My sister and mom came to visit me for Easter! We had a great time, sleeping in, hanging out, going out to eat and my personal favorite, exploring the city with my camera.

My sister is always a willing model in these shooting excursions and this time was no exception. Saturday afternoon we wandered down to the newly upgraded Buckingham Fountain with some really fun shades that made for some awesome shots.





Slide down the railing!



I got a few more of her on the EL as we made our way back to my apartment. She looks JUST like old pictures of my mom when she was her age in this one…



I know this one was her favorite so I decided to use it to end the post.

Family Visit!

Happy Dance! My mom and sister are coming out to visit me this weekend! I love family visits because they always mean lots of hugs. It also means time to play with my baby bunny (my sister)! She loves photography as much as I do so we’re always taking pictures when we’re together. Here are some of my favorites of her from the past year…(mom won’t let me take pictures of her so she’s not going to be included)
