There have been some questions about Slideshows... most folks just want to know, "how do I order them?"

Well, for those of you who don't know, I release a slideshow for most of my on-location clients. The slideshow links are kept private, hence the reason many of you may not have seen them. But anyway, about the ordering process....

To order a slideshow, click on the shopping cart at the bottom of the screen. The shopping cart appears when the slideshow is playing. The company is a very reputable company, and you should get your slideshow sent by mail shortly after ordering.

If you have any questions at all, feel free to give me a call. (248-425-6008.)

Have a great day!

Thank you!!!

I want to say thank you to everyone who helped make this fall's charity shoot a huge success! I was so flattered that almost everyone donated even more than the minimum to their favorite charity! All in all, we raised quite a bit of money for each of the four charities.

I now have about 10 hours of shoots to edit... put plainly, I have about 600+ pictures to edit! (Rather intimidating when presented in that light, huh?) So, while I work to get your shoot posted to Pictage asap, please know that I will try my very very best to make sure each of you has all of your galleries posted by Thanksgiving. (Note: I will issue your gift certificates when I release the gallery...)

Okay, now off to Photoshop! I've got some (serious) work ahead of me!!!!

Thanks again everybody... we were able to make a huge difference!

The Vandeveegaete Family

My very good friends, the Vandeveegate Family, stopped by on Saturday to get some holiday pictures. I have been taking pictures of their son since birth and this is the first shoot where we've been able to capture these wonderful curls! (So cute!)

From Santa hat to Halloween costume - we did it all, and this little man was a champ!

Here are some of my favorites from the session...


The Valade Family

One of my favorite little boys came to my studio on Saturday. He is very well behaved, and so good natured. I first took pictures of this little boy when he was one. Now, a year later, it's amazing to see what a little man he has become!

Mom chose a black background with black clothing for the later half of the session. The result is very striking and makes the subject just pop out of the picture. Absolutely beautiful...

Here are may favorites from the session.


Siver Family

Last weekend, on a chilly Saturday morning, I met up with a family in Rochester. Dad had to go into the office, so it was just mom and her three boys. Three boys. Soooo much energy! Those of you that know me, know that my favorite sessions are the ones full of running, playing, and laughing. And this shoot was exactly that.

At one point in the session, the oldest brother just tackled the middle brother! No one got hurt - and so it was okay.... but I said tickle. They heard tackle. Hilarious!

I love little boys.

Here are some of my favorites from the session... (and notice the last picture, a split second before the tackle!!! hee hee!)


Jeff and Megan

Last weekend, Jeff and Megan stopped by to have their engagement portraits taken. They are a super fun couple. And although Jeff wasn't crazy about the idea of getting pictures taken, in the end, he was a great sport about it - and made the event hilarious. I can't wait for this wedding. It's going to be a ton of fun!
