These are not JUST pictures I take. I create memories... My heart and soul go into my work. I care about my clients and get to know them and learn what they like and dislike. I am a mommy & artist. I care about the ones I love like crazy, I love to have fun. I make crazy sounds to get those smiles. I dream big. I have tons of ideas. I cry during touching ceremonies and awesome reception speeches. I can usually be found smiling. I get inspired very easily. 231.549.2038

So these are our friends! I’ve been wanting so bad to photograph a horse in the snow… couldn’t have asked for a shoot to go better. Not to mention it was in 17 degree weather. I tried some new editing here as you will probably notice if you know my style. It’s so fun to try new things. I’m so excited for 2013!! I have so many goals for my business and family.

My son has not been the biggest fan of snow. He likes to say, “snowwwwwwww” but when it comes to the cold stuff no way! We got him all dressed warm took him out and the second he got some on him he balled. So we waited a while and let him get used to the idea… took him out again a couple weeks later and still not a fan. We have a super hard time finding any type of footwear for him because he has a chubby wide big foot for a baby. He is now walking and someone suggested rainboots. We went and found some at a local store and they didn’t have his size… I try as much as possible to shop locally and I hope everyone else reading my blog does too. I could go on and on about that subject but I think we all know why it’s important. Long story short I had to order some online. We got them in last Friday and I had the bright idea to take him back out. It was before we got a the huge snow storm and the roads were bare. He loved it! Now I think it’s time to try again with actually playing in the snow and maybe he will keep his mittens on.
