It’s always a treat to photograph friends! When they trust ME to preserve their family dynamics, precious moments in their lives when they only are together sparingly as everyone has their own agenda, their own lives.

Since the youngest. Bailey, was in need to senior photos, they called on me and made a family day of it! Driving an hour to come see, I feel so appreciative of their time!

Thanks Ron & Brenda Bruce, and Nick, Jake and Bailey! Much love!

Today is this girl’s last day of High School. I know exactly what her mom is feeling. Mixed feelings of joy and sadness as one chapter closes and another begins.

Oh, the places she’ll go… when we let go and let them!

When I decided to start photographing seniors again, I never dreamed I’d be so lucky to get to photograph (again) this beautiful girl.

You see, I met Sarah’s parents when Sarah was just a baby and I managed the Moto Photo portrait studio which was brand new. Sarah’s parent’s, Rob and Pam brought her in to the studio to me. Back then, I was pretty new to the area, having just moved from Virginia Beach, where I worked as a manager in another studio for 5 years.

I later reconnected with Pam as they own the amazing wedding and event venue Nazareth Hall in Grand Rapids (Bowling Green area), Ohio.

Thanks for thinking of me for these precious memories Pam and Sarah!
