New Stuff for High School Seniors!!

There is new stuff happening for MISS Seniors… the information magazine, with the updates I’ve been working on, is finished! It covers everything from what’s included, products and pricing. Best part? I’ve added another session type, theCLASSIC! If you want the most gorgeous photos with professional make-up and all that jazz, but just not that into getting your photos taken… this is for you!  Don’t worry, though, if you want to do the whole shebang… I’m still doing my thing… it’s just called theLUXE now. 😉  Check it out below! And don’t forget to go to the website to see more Seniors. 🙂

Are you still doing senior photos. I’m having a hard time finding a photographer for my daughter Madison’s Senior pics. I’m very impressed with your work. Please let me know if you’re interested in doing madsy’s pics. If so, please send me some information. Thank you.

Valentine Treats…mmmm….

Valentine Cupcakes Blog


I love how perfectly this all turned out for Jackson’s Valentine’s Day school party!  I made these cupcakes about a month ago, and omg!! They are amazing!! Vanilla cookie dough stuffed cupcakes with cookie dough frosting! Be still my gurgling stomach. 🙂  I love a reason to bake… especially when I won’t end up eating it all on my own. 😉  So, I knew I wanted to make them for his party… but I needed a valentine to go with for him to give out… ideally one that wasn’t candy.  There is enough sugar in one cupcake to put a large adult in a sugar coma, much less a 3 year old.  I had been cruising pinterest and stressing when out of the blue a photog friend of mine shared the unbelievably perfect and adorable cards you see above! Simple, inexpensive, perfect.

Thank you to Melissa, of LoopDeLoop: The Blog for the Free Printable Valetine! Get yours from the link!

The recipe for the breathtaking cupcakes can be found in The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook, by Lindsay Landis.  Not enough time to get the book and bake? Then check out Lindsay’s blog, Love and Olive Oil, for a so similar recipe, it’d be hard to ever know the difference.

Happy Valentine’s Day!


I had the extreme pleasure of getting to hold Mega Mini Sessions for Valentine’s Day at Pish Posh Children’s Boutique in Midland, MI.  It was wonderful… and it’s amazingly fun to get to photograph so many adorable kidlets. 🙂
