dozi design

I've been waiting for the day to post about this, and it's finally here! =)

Dozi design is finally opening shop and ready to sell delightful and original paper products - stationary, cards, blank books, etc...

See a preview and more details here.

The girl behind Dozi design is the one who actually did my wonderful logo design, which I've gotten tons of compliments about. See here...

So take a look, and I'm sure you'll find a little something that gives warm, happy feelings.

Ok... heading up north for the weekend to spend some fun and hopefully refreshing times with some crazy kids and families.

fun in the sun

This sweet girl just turned one. Despite a very rough night of sleep and battling a cold, Tia seemed to warm up to me pretty quickly (or maybe she just wanted to play with my camera). We had a great time together. I am in the middle of processing *a lot* of photos from this session, but I happened to place these 3 together and liked how it looked.

due in july

I got to photograph this mom-to-be yesterday. Baby is due in July, and she is looking great being 7 months pregnant. Here's a sneak peek for mom-and-dad-to-be:


Isn't she gorgeous?

(dad-to-be says he never turns out good in photos, but I think this one is pretty good)


It rained all day and we kept going back and forth about whether to reschedule. But it cleared up for the short time we were taking pictures. Thanks guys for being so flexible, willing to brave the wet conditions, and letting me lead you down random alley ways. =) Looking forward to the newborn session!

I am so excited, I had to blog. =b
We got a new computer over a month ago, and I was totally looking forward to using it for all my photography work, as it is *much* faster than what I was using before. But unfortunately, I soon found that I couldn't jump right into using it because I was having issues with the color being consistent across different programs I used... so I couldn't trust whether the color of my images was accurate or not during my editing.
I finally got a little bit of downtime to look into this issue further, and was planning to spend this entire afternoon on the phone with Adobe customer service, trying to figure out what the issue was exactly (I had talked to them a while back and they suggested trying one thing, but it didn't work, and I haven't had time to call back since) But before I called them, I decided to play around with it a little more.

So by a combination of 1) one of the programs miraculously fixing itself (seriously, I turned it on and suddenly the color was different than before) and 2) me changing one other color setting ... my computer is all better and good to go!!!

So now I am happy because I can finally use our new computer... and I've got that nice satisfying feeling when you kinda understand what you had to do to fix it. Ok, I guess that's my nerdy side coming out. =)

a day at the zoo

I had the privilege of photographing this beautiful family a couple weekends ago. They had the great idea of going to the Detroit Zoo for their photo shoot. I had such a fun time walking around with them and just seeing them enjoy each other as a family.
Addie turned one recently, and she is such an active kid! She was constantly on the run, and I got a good workout chasing her around. But that is all part of the fun.

Doesn't she look like she's having a ball? (And I love seeing the Detroit Zoo water tower in the background)


You might recognize these gorgeous blue eyes from my website... I can't get enough of them!

We took lots of family shots because mom felt like she didn't have any good pictures of the whole family. (I think she will now) They are such an easy-going and loving family!

Fun with dad...

And an intimate moment with mom.
