Jon, etc.

Muskegon, Michigan

You know you have a creative teenager on your hands when they help scope out their own locations for their senior session.  I remember Jon’s mom calling me and telling me where they were waiting for me.  “You can’t miss us, Jon’s playing his guitar near this old red building.”  I thought right then and there that this would be a great photography session.

As well as photographing Jon, we took some family portraits, too. Besides being creative and just really cool people, I loved their playfulness, authenticity and enthusiasm for one another.  I left feeling like I wanted to be around these people more. It certainly didn’t feel like work.  A few days later, I got an email telling me that they expected being photographed to be a bit like pulling teeth but they actually had fun.  That’s what it’s all about – -both of us leaving feeling fulfilled.

Best of luck to you, Jon, in your senior year at North Muskegon High School and may your family always be by your side.

GLANCE: Jon

Muskegon, Michigan

I know Jon is a teenager — a senior at North Muskegon High School — but he’s already quite an interesting human being. He plays the guitar. He’s traveled to France. He plays soccer. Interesting, yes, but also kind, polite and considerate (he offered to carry my camera bag!) Also, Jon scoped out his own locations for his photo shoot. Impressive. Nonetheless, his mom had to bribe him with a slushy for a smile or two. In between Jon’s senior photos, we took a few family photos which I’ll share soon.   (And by the way, Jon’s mom and younger brother are pretty awesome too.)

Thanks for being fun, creative and, most of all, being yourselves.

GLANCE: Jon and Becky wedding

Typically, I get to meet wedding clients prior to their ceremony but I didn’t get that opportunity with Jon and Becky.  So, I asked them to email me a little about themselves and about the wedding. They wrote, “We are both science people. We both like being outside and little details in nature.”  The wedding would be held at Becky’s parents’ home on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan in Manistee.  With every wedding I photograph, I feel it’s my duty to learn as much as I can about the couple so I can capture what is important and cherished in their eyes.  I leave wondering if I’ll ever see those “science people” again but thanking them for allowing me to tell their story.  Thank you, Jon and Becky, you are wonderful!
