We love these photos we were able to capture of the lovely Fife family. With a new little sister around, it was the perfect time to capture the new addition. We love photographing Ann Arbor family sessions and typically find for our relaxed lifestyle ideas it's best at your actual home. Kids feel instantly more at ease with us! If you are interested in a family session to invest in images of your family that you will love for a lifetime-e-mail us or call! Session fee's start at $275 and investments start around $700 for prints + products. Watch the blog for a portrait session fee sale coming up next month for spring/early summer sessions!

We find ourselves still blushing whenever someone requests to publish our work. It's still a thrill, and a thrill for our clients too! Just some recent press from print to web!

First off, the lovely Sarah + Rupert were published back in January on Style me Pretty! Their wedding was at The Inn at Stonecliffe on Mackinac Island-and then a day after session at the Grand Hotel. Coming to the blog soon!
