Adorable Family Photo Shoot - Indian Springs Metro Park

Indian Springs Metro Park is one of my favorite local Clarkston locations for photo sessions. We went exploring for this fun family photo session starting at Nature Discovery Center through paths in deep grass, up the hill and overlooking the beautiful area. The pond glistening behind us. This location has so much to offer when it comes to photography and it is a great place to take kids exploring and running, and having fun.

We didn’t get to see any wildlife this time, but I have seen bunnies and listened to lovely birds singing.

Depending on the season you choose to visit and explore the area, I suggest bringing bug spray in summer seasons, since the park has tall grass and several ponds… and , yes, quite a few mosquitoes.

Lovely lakeside wedding at Twin Chimneys

Lucas and Alexa had their lovely lakeside wedding at Twin Chimneys Independence Oaks County park. Having an outside wedding in Michigan can have its risks - from scorching heat to rain, but this day only few drops came down earlier in the day, and the breeze from the lake made for a lovely celebration of love.

The pavilion was decorated with string lights and rustic table center pieces and guests were treated to handmade soaps as favors.

The couple said their I Dos in front of the gazebo and the park gave great options for romantic wedding photos on the docks of the lake and around the park.

Belly Photo Shoot - Bay Court park

As a Clarkston photographer I enjoy the surrounding parks to give me great locations for photo shoots. Surprising for early February, we lucked out with almost spring like weather with temperatures in the 40s F.

While in places there was some mud and soggy ground, Bay court park was perfect for M & K baby bump photo session.

Firefighter Baby

I have to say, people who serve communities, people who serve others in distress, have special place in my heart. And it was my privilege a little while ago to photograph a growing family with mom firefighter.

This photo shoot, like many that involve little kids, took a bit a patience, and a bit of time, but came out with beautiful memories for the family.

Mother - Daughter Sessions

I absolutely love mother daughter photo sessions. The special connection between the girls, the relationship creates the moments of closeness. This type of photo shoot is great for Mothers Day or Moms birthday, or any "just because" day. Because time rushes by - and there are those great photos of kids when they are little, and then they become teens and in a blink of an eye life happens. And it is always nice too look back and share a great experience.

Murder Mystery Dinner hosted by Clarkston Chamber of Commerce YPN

This was second annual Murder Mystery Dinner hosted by Clarkston Area Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Network. Pine Knob Mansion was the perfect place for the Gatsby themed event. The guests dressed the part, the actors ( Clarkston Village Players as well as Chamber members) brought the gangsters, politicians and flappers to life, and the guilty party was brought to justice.
