Meg & Randall's Central Park Maternity Photoshoot | New York, NY

Can I just say, I LOVE maternity shoots and I LOVE early morning sessions! When I met up with Meg and Randall for some early morning photos in Central Park, I knew that we were in for some amazing photos.

You wouldn’t know it from how big his smile is or how much he’s standing in photos, but the dad-to-be from this photoshoot had knee surgery a week before these photos were taken. I’m never one to back down from a challenge so Grandma came as a photo assistant and we made it work! Lucky for her she doesn’t live in New York full time or else I might have recruited Meg’s mom as my permanent photo assistant she was SO helpful!

With their positive attitudes and genuine love for each other, these two are sure to be the most amazing parents!

LeighAnne & Finn's Battery Park Photoshoot | New York, NY

We’d been having a straight week of bad weather here in New York so I was convinced I was going to have to reschedule this photoshoot. At the very last minute the sun came out and I was so happy to head to Battery Park for a pet photoshoot with LeighAnne and Finn!

Finn wasn’t a fan of the wet ground but as soon as he found out I had cheese on me, we were all set! He put on his most serious face and paid no attention to the crowds of people who were also out enjoying the nice weather by the water. Once he warmed up I finally got some photos of his goofy smile and got to see his playful and fun personality.

One of my favorite parts of pet photoshoots is getting photos of the whole family - pets and humans - so I was SO excited that LeighAnne wanted photos with Finn. He made sure to put on his serious face for the camera but you can tell how special their bond is.

By the time the rain started up again I was heading north on the subway and so grateful that the weather held out long enough for a successful Battery Park photoshoot!

University of Michigan Graduation | Ann Arbor Michigan

There’s something so exciting about graduations. I’m not sure whether it’s the feeling of success, the potential of new adventures or just the general feel of celebration but the good mood is contagious.

In true Michigan form, the weather kept us guessing until the very last minute whether it would cooperate or not. It wasn’t the warmest day but you cant’ tell from the smiles on this group (and it didn’t snow 🙌) I’m putting this one in the win column!

Beth & Matt's Spring Photoshoot | Ann Arbor, Michigan

When Matt and Beth approached me asking for photos at the University of Michigan to remember their time living in Ann Arbor, I was thrilled! Lucky for me these two lovebirds are early risers who were keen to pretend they weren’t cold, despite the unusually cold Michigan weather.

The Law Quad at U of M is one of my favorite places on campus to do photos because there is something truly magical about the architecture and the light! Of course, we weren’t the only ones to think this, so we shared the space with some graduates who were out in droves that day in their cap and gowns. Matt and Beth were naturals in front of the camera though so we were able to maximize our time and get them back into their jackets in no time, with only the occasional dance break to warm up between photos!

Fall Pup Mini Sessions | Michigan

Fall means different things to different people. The temperature drops, pumpkin spice everything becomes available and all of the trees go from dark green to a rainbow of reds, yellows and oranges.

For me, fall was a chance to meet so many amazing new pups and capture them frolicking in the leaves! If you missed the fall minis, stay tuned for the next batch of winter and spring minis that will be coming up over the next few months!
