I absolutely love the Valente family! I have known them for several years now and had the pleasure of photographing their adorable daughter when was just a little baby! I can't believe she is all grown up now. And those golden curls, I obsessed!

When they let me know they wanted to do another family photo shoot while I was in Michigan I knew I had to do something truly special for them. Instead of going to my usual spots, I decided to take them to a new location that I had been wanting to try for a while. It was a park in my favorite town, Fenton, and there are these gorgeous willow trees that are just so dreamy! And boy was I right!

I still can't get over how great their photos turned out. Not only are they a photogenic family, but the deep love they have for each other shines through every photo. There is nothing I love more about my job than getting to capture authentic joy for families to remember for years to come. Photographing families is a gift and I am grateful that I get to do it for families close to my heart.
