Shelby Travino :: Beal City High School :: Class of 2018

If you know anything about Beal City, you know how serious they take their sports.  And with Shelby, there’s no exception.  You’ll no doubt see a few sporty pictures that represent her love of all sports but you’ll also see her softness, some personality and an overall glow about her. She just shines.  I trust you’ll agree.

I hope this year is amazing for you, Shelby. Enjoy every minute of it. Soak it up! Thanks for choosing me to capture your senior pictures this year.  I was blessed to get to you.  Cheers to 2018!


Kenna Wood :: Lakeview High School :: Class of 2018

This girl.   She’s just so sweet, kind and soooo photogenic!  Gah! I had so much fun bringing out Kenna’s stunning features and soft personality.  I loved having this Lakeview gal on the team this year being the first to represent her school on my model team!  Enjoy a scroll through her custom senior shoot!


Enjoy each and every moment of this year, Kenna.  You’re going to do great things!!





Aubrie Sanchez :: Ithaca High School :: Class of 2018

I was so looking forward to Aubrie’s session because I knew she loved animals and wanted pictures with her favorite horse.  The horse was white, different than anything I had photographed before.  We started our session at the studio but quickly left because it was a beautiful night and of course I love natural light.  Enjoy a stroll through Aubrie’s session. She has a bold and stunning look and a soft, quiet personality.  Capturing those qualities in her was a complete delight.  

Emma Leute :: AHS :: Class of 2018

Check out this beautiful rising Alma senior!  I am thrilled to have Emma on the team this year.  Such a sweet spirit and gentle smile. She was my first senior model to be photographed in June and I’m just now blogging her lovely session! Gah! Enjoy a stroll to sweet Emma’s senior shoot.

Remember that you are worth it. You’re beautiful. And you are unique!  So much goodness is ahead for you, Emma.  I’m excited to see where your journey takes you.  Thank you for choosing me to be your senior photographer. It was an honor to capture you!

Lots of Love!



The Meyer Wedding :: September 17,2016 :: Bay Harbor

Katelyn and Steven were married in beautiful Petoskey, MI last month and it was my great honor to capture their special day.  If you’ve never been to Petoskey, it is one of my favorite spots in MI. It has a nostalgic feel with it’s old downtown, variety of delicious restaurant options, shopping, and lake life all wrapped up into one.  So, when I received and email for this wedding, I was elated.  Capturing love in this part of the mitten is not too difficult.

We began the day at the Inn at Bay Harbor where all the girls got ready for they day.  I love having time to photograph these “getting ready” moments.  There is just something special about this process. All the smiles and anticipation, finally getting to put on the dress and carefully chosen jewelry, Dad seeing his girl for the first time, mom beaming at the site of the woman she has raised and simply capturing a bride surrounded by her closest friends as she soon will be handed off to the man she loves.  It’s all beautiful!  As I spent time with the girls, my friend and talented wedding photographer who second shot with me for the day, Traci, photographed the guys.  We met up soon though, as the bride and groom opted for a “first look” on their wedding day.

After the ceremony, at the St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Charlevoix we came back to the Yacht Club where all of the celebrating continued.  This venue was breathtaking with a weather forecast to match.  They really couldn’t have asked for anything better, as you will see when you get to the sunset pictures over the water.  I didn’t know what to do with myself with all of that beauty.  I was thankful.  Steven and Katelyn were a breeze to work with as their love for each other and family shined the whole day through.

Enjoy your stroll through the Meyer’s wedding day story…



Thank you, Katelyn and Steven for choosing me to photograph such an important day. It was an honor. I pray that God continues to richly bless you for many years to come.


All the best,
