February Round Up – Detroit, Michigan

March 1, 2020

It’s official: the first month of 2020 is OVER. I feel good about it! Normally, the end of January is a panicky time for me.

June has always been and will always be my most favorite month. Of course it helps that it’s my birthday month, but there’s just something that’s so happy about it.

June Roundup – Detroit, Michigan

July 10, 2019

Spring has come to an end and we’re fully into the summer season! Pretty sure I think this every month, but May was such a whirlwind. I think out of all the months this year, May has flown by me the fastest. I had eight photo shoots, four weddings, and so many consultations. Being a […]
