I LOVE Halloween!!  Every year we, Korrine (the make up artist I work with) and myself, do a Halloween themed shoot.  This is our chance during the year to do something wild and crazy!!!

The first images, I did the makeup myself as Korrine and I had already done a Day of the Dead theme for out first Halloween themed shoot.  I really wanted to do one with my daughter and husband this year, but by the time I was done with my daughter’s makeup up, it was too late in the day for my husband.  Maybe next year we can do the father daughter Day of the Dead.  I love my daughter’s Sassiness in these images!  She totally rocked it.

The second set of images, Korrine and I decided we wanted to do the Mad Hatter’s Daughter, like she was coming in to have her portraits done.  I am very pleased with how these turned out.  Korrine did an amazing job with the makeup and this year we actually had a hair stylist! FINALLY!  The hair can look good!  Huge Shout out to Brenda Goethals for the beautiful hair that took for ever to do!!  Another thank you to our model, Ruby, she is simply gorgeous and definitely made my job easy.  Thank you to everyone, this wouldn’t be possible without you all!

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!!!

This young lady is GORGEOUS!!  She contacted me to do a studio portrait session as she will be starting her own immigration law firm soon and of course she is going to need some headshots!  We had a lot of fun during our time together and by the end of the session, she had her flow posing down! Thank to the ladies who pampered her, Hair: @Idoharibybrenda Brenda Goethal and Makeup: Korrine Claxton Korrine C. Makeup Artist & Esthetician.

I rarely do High School Senior Portraits and I usually only do them for good friends.  One of my girlfriend’s daughter is a High School Senior at Kentwood, so when she asked my to photograph her daughter, I said YES!!  We were hoping for sunny weather when we drove up to the pass, but I am actually very happy it was overcast as it was absolutely perfect!  This high school senior is stunning!!!  We found the perfect location as she loves the outdoors and of course skiing during the winter time.  It was a little tricky getting to some of the spots as we had to navigate rocky grounds and water but it all turned out well in the end.   Only one of us fell in the water, I won’t say who!

I meet this family when Rio was attending Preschool and I had the opportunity to get to know this family over the past couple of years.  Anytime the kids came over, I always photographed them, they have the cutest little faces.  I was so honored when they asked me to do their family photos and they are all so photogenic.  Check out their images and thank you to this family for letting me do this for you!

This little girl is gorgeous!  I photographed her about two years ago and I was super excited when her mom contacted me to do her three year pictures as well as newborn pictures for the newest member of their family.  I really enjoyed these studio sessions as it is fun to have a chance to play with the younger kids again, this age is so precious!  I also was able to use my new backdrops, I am very pleased with how they photographed, both are my new favorites now.  We also used some glitter for a few shots and those were some of my favorite images from this studio session. Anyways, enough talk, let’s get to the images!
