What an absolute honor to photograph this wonderful young woman! During our Zoom consultation I could tell she was so easy going and WOW she lived up to that!
Hannah and her mom came to the studio to start our session. I have taught with Hannah's mom, Kally, for 9 years and she is one of the most thoughtful people I know. She has such a big heart for her students and is someone who creates so much warmth in her classroom. You can walk down the hallway and hear her students singing, and she can tell you all of her students likes, dislikes, and favorites the second you ask. It was so fun to get to spend time with them both! (And you know we had to get a few mother/daughter photos!)
After the studio we headed toward downtown Mason and then to their family property that had ALL of the great fields! It was important to Hannah to have photos at the places she grew up. She is very involved in her community, and I'm told is an excellent trombone player. We hurried to some of her favorite places so we could beat the setting sun and make sure we got all of the beautiful soft light. What a fun afternoon and evening it was getting all of these different shots in different locations!
Let me introduce you to my beautiful friend Ronza! She is a certified life coach, mom to an ADORABLE one year old, and the most supportive friend a girl could ask for!
I met Ronza through a mutual friend several years ago. We share a similar cultural background and instantly connected on so many levels. Ronza is from Palestine and came to the U.S. for school. She met her husband, Ed, in Boston, and now they live in MI.
When Ronza started her business she came to the studio for personal branding photos. Being an online business means that clients first connect to you through words and photographs. Investing in your first impression is key to the success of your online business; what do you want your clients to notice about you first?
What you see in these photos is the real Ronza; someone who will sit on a couch with you (or these days, on Zoom!) and listen to your dreams and aspirations. She will give you advice and guide you through questions to help you exceed your business or personal goals. She is a WONDERFUL listeners, and truly hears what you are saying and responds in a meaningful and direct way. Everyone needs a Ronza!
What will your personal branding images say about you? What do you hope to visually communicate to your clients that will draw them in? We can meet your styling and branding goals inside or outside the studio, and welcome your clients to your website/marketing pages with photos that represent the very best of you!
Have you ever met people that you just instantly fall in love with? Well, if you haven't, you should meet the Hamers family! They radiate joy and kindness like it's their full-time job. Mike and Jen have two beautiful daughters who are some of the sweetest kids I have ever met!
I have had the absolute pleasure of getting to know this family over the last few years. Mike and Jen work in the same school district, and their girls have been stealing the hearts of teachers since Kindergarten. One is an old soul, and one is the life of the party; two very different personalities, but both have hearts of gold! Both are sensitive, caring, and so compassionate.
One of the most unique things about the Hamers family is how they will make anyone and everyone feel right at ease. Talking to them is like talking to old friends!
Unfortunately our session was cut short because of an in-ground wasp nest; there were some screams, some stings, and I'm told some ice cream and a bubble bath at home afterwards. I can't wait to steal them for some winter photos; all of the snow. All of the rosy cheeks. All of the adorable winter gear. NONE of the wasps!
