pure magic happened on our shoot the evening i worked with monica & mike for their engagement session. it was the end of a long weekend for me. 3 shoots a day for 3 days and by the time i got to monica & mike, there was a little bit of exhaustion going on. but this is my passion. this is what i know i'm supposed to be doing. and i know that because i can find the energy and the creativity and the umph to shoot. every time. and usually when i need the extra push the most, it comes. it comes from my amazing clients and we make some magic together. every turn on our walk, we found incredible backdrops and splashing waves off lake michigan and weeping willows waiting for us. i think i screamed that it was just like "ferngully" at one point. why? cause i'm a huge nerd. loved working with these two and i'm ecstatic that i get to shoot their day next summer!
