South Haven holds a special place in my heart. I’ve been “summering” there for (cough) 25 years or so now. I enjoy all of the activities (live music on Thursday nights, the blueberry festival, fly-ins, pancake breakfasts, art shows, people watching, a few Tonya Marie Photography portrait sessions, and of course the amazing beaches!), a […]
I LOVE photographing seniors.
The high school senior year is full of excitement. And a time that should be celebrated with beautiful portraits. It’s a point where you say goodbye to childhood and hello to adulthood. Figure out what to do with your life…yeah, that’s a biggie. And make memories that will last a lifetime. Definitely […]
Repeat clients are awesome! I just adore watching the kids grow, seeing their personalities develop, and creating portraits that will be loved for years. Another benefit of having returning families is we establish a level of comfort and trust that makes working together so easy…plus this family is just plain amazing. And this session at […]
Toddlers can be a tricky age to photograph. They are often far too busy discovering, exploring, and investigation their world to pause for a moment to look at the camera. However with a healthy dose of patience and persistence all around, we were able to create amazing portraits of this active little girl.
We started off […]
Last weekend was filled with portrait sessions for me and while mother nature cooperated rain wise, the temps could have been 30* warmer. It was in the mid twenties for my first senior of the weekend! Keep in mind this is mid October…not December, c’mon! And yes, we were outside and on the beach bright […]
Yep. Another gorgeous high school senior. Blond hair, blue eyes, and an amazing smile…what’s not to love! This session was filled with lots of laughs as we enjoyed a beautiful morning at the beach in South Haven, Michigan. I know “M” is really excited to see her portraits so here you go!!!

I’m so lucky to have photographed another gorgeous senior on the beach in South Haven, MI. I’m always so excited to finally meet my seniors and get to know them a bit during their sessions. This senior was super sweet, easy to work with (even after taking that pesky ACT test in the morning!), and […]
The beach in South Haven, Michigan was the perfect setting for this sweet family photo session. I had the pleasure of photographing this little guy as a newborn and was so excited to see how he has grown. I was delighted to see his sparkling blue eyes, adorable crinkly nose, and such a charming personality. […]
I have the best seniors ever. Seriously. Gorgeous. Sweet. Smart. Creative. And this girl was no exception. The thing that struck me the most about her (besides her model good looks, amazing smile, beautiful eyes, awesome hair…) is her personality. She is so poised and has a natural confidence far beyond her years. It was […]
I have photographed with this family several times over the years and I look forward to each session. Mom always comes with amazing clothing choices: Matilda Jane (not pictured…hey, this is a sneak peek!) and Gap to name a few. Plus watching the girls grow and being able to record those precious memories is such […]
