About 20 years ago I watched and sobbed through a movie called “Somewhere in Time”.  That was the first time I was introduced to Mackinac Island.  I’ve pretty much been obsessed with it since.  For 2 years I have tried to schedule a workshop up there but I’ve had the hardest time filling it up.

    Mackinac is my favorite place on earth. Being from Southeast Michigan I try my hardest to get there at least once a year. If you have never had the opportunity to spend the night on the island you MUST do it! The island is truly a magical place and spending the night just makes it moreso. So glad to see these images and that you got the chance to enjoy what is Pure Michigan Magic.ReplyCancel

Ummm….these two are just downright adorable.

Well, […]

There is nothing better than returning clients.  I LOVE being there when my clients get married and then get to continue to watch their family grow.  Although I do specialize in weddings, I love to build a relationship so that I can continue to capture their most special moments.  This is such a joy for […]

    Hi Julie! I just came upon your blog today and your photos are absolutely stunning! I just put together my photography website yesterday and am waiting for the arrival of some business cards so that I can pursue my photography :) Looking through your family sessions I was wondering if you provide the clothing ideas for the family? Do they purchase items specifically for the shoot, such as all of the lovely dresses the girls are wearing in the engagement photos and the beautiful dress in this maternity session? Also would you be able to share what type of lens you are using in your see me in action video? I have a limited budget right now and want to make sure I pick the most important lenses…I currently have a 50mm 1.4, 35mm 1.4 wide angle, 70-200 (without IS but I have tripod) and the lensbaby composer pro with sweet 35 optic. Thank you so much in advance for your input and have a blessed day!
