Janell, Nick, Blake, Mason + Claire | Stony Creek Metropark

YOU GUYS.

Is this real life?! 😍

I think it's safe to say that most photographers can attest that photographing another photographer makes your stomach feel like it's gonna fall outta your butt 🤢 (if you caught that Mean Girls reference, you're my spirit animal 😘). 

Total disclosure, I always get nervous before sessions because you never really know what you're walking in to and more than anything you really want to give your clients an amazing experience AND amazing images, but it's another level of anxiety when you're photographing a fellow colleague - and an EXTREMELY talented one at that! Luckily, Janell + Nick and their adorable tribe made my job absolutely effortless, as you'll see below in my (pathetic) attempt to narrow down some favorites of these beautiful babes.

Janell took me exploring Stony Creek Metropark in Shelby Township, Michigan and as if the 5 million other photographers roaming the park didn't make it clear enough, this place - although a bit of a hike from my neck of the woods - is well worth the trip (see exhibits A-Z below). Add this absolutely gorgeous family (styled with the wardrobe styling assistant all of my clients have access to 😘) and you have yourself a dreeeeeeeam session.

I'll stop talking now and let you guys in on some of the swooning. Enjoy some of my favorites of this beautiful bunch!
