Blooming Orchard Mini Sessions

My blooming orchard mini sessions at Anderson & Girls Orchard in Stanton Michigan are always some of my favorite photos for the year. The trees are so beautiful when they are blooming and the weather is mild (although usually rainy) in May.

I watched the weather forecast all week. At times it showed rain during our sessions, but when the time came we had beautiful weather for each session :)

I love giving my clients fun prompts like hold hands and run towards me! Look at those natural smiles!

I love seeing the connection and love in these authentic photos!

I took this sweet family's photos at Christmas a couple of years ago so I was so happy to see them again and provide them with some updated photos!

I first met this family last year for their baby's newborn photos in the NICU. I've really enjoyed each session we've had and it's so great to see their beautiful baby doing so well!

Someone commented on this photo when I posted it on Facebook saying how well it represented parenthood and I have to agree!

I love getting photos of mom and dad together while the little ones take a little break from photos. It gives mom and dad a moment to just breath in the midst of the busyness of life.

Oh, and want to know what everyone is laughing at here? No, it's not one of my prompts I use to get a natural laugh. I was backed up against the fence of the petting zoo taking this photo and looked over to see a zebra/donkey sticking it's nose out of the fence sniffing me! LOL!

Lifestyle family photo sessions are my favorite. If you're interested in capturing your family's story this summer and preserving it in heirloom prints that you will treasure contact me now to start planning your custom session.
