Summer of Sunsets

This summer, I have had the opportunity to photograph a number of spectacular sunsets.  I am fortunate that I live very near some great sunset viewing locations!  It always amazes me how different each one can be.  The colors, the clouds…nature is so wonderful!

So, here for your viewing pleasure, are some of my best sunset photos from this summer.

Don’t think I’m going to stop just because summer’s almost over…look for more gorgeousness to come!


Photos from Florida

Earlier this month, we took a vacation to Florida.  We went to Disney World, Sea World and Gatorland.  I’d been looking for an opportunity to use my new camera (the weather here at home has been less than cooperative for getting outdoors and taking photos) and this trip definitely fit the bill!

These are a few examples of what we saw while we were away…

Of course there are so many more to share!  But that’s for another post!


Winter in Michigan

I’m not really a fan of winter, I’ll admit.  I’ve lived in Michigan all my life, so really, I just have to suck it up and get over it.  I think Old Man Winter is trying to sway my dislike this year.  He’s produced some beautiful winter scenes for me that are thawing my icy heart.

How can you not like winter just a little bit when you wake up to your world looking like this?


Tagan and Nick|{SW Michigan Winter Portrait Photographer}

I had an impromptu session with Tagan and Nick (and their adorable dog, Pluto) today.  We didn’t have a lot of time to do this but we we made it work and it was a lot of fun!  The weather even cooperated, which is saying a lot seeing as Michigan weather can be so unpredictable.
