Starting Over

What a week! Last Thursday my computer was acting crazier than normal. By Monday my hard-drive had failed and everything was black. I really didn't realize how much software, programs and websites I use everyday to keep my business running, until I had to start over again. This afternoon I finally got Photoshop to load, and of course the first photographs I checked to make sure they were safe were from Paris..... hazy, and playfully pastel, they suit my mood. Next week will be much better.

P.S. More Paris in the Springtime is here...

Senior Portrait - Miss K.

I have to admit I was nervous scheduling an outdoor senior portrait session so late into the fall. Michigan weather can be unpredictable at best. But, as you can see there was nothing to worry about. The sunshine was lovely and dappled, with a glow that only comes very late in the year. And my model was stunning! Miss K. grew up in the city and I gave her the option of a more urban shoot. But, I am glad she chose this location instead. It really shows her beautiful, warm personality. Cheers to your upcoming graduation, Miss K. I can't wait to see where you end up next!

Cheers to the New Year! Hope it is off to a great start for you all.
