Owen | Jackson, Mi Area Photographer | One Year Old Sesame Street Cake Smash http://www.amberyanovichphotography.com/blog/2018/5/owen-jackson-mi-area-photographer-one-year-old-sesame-street-cake-smash I can never get enough of Owen.  He's one of the happiest, cutest and sweetest little guys!  We celebrated his first birthday in style with a sesame street smash session, and he loved it as much as we did!  I'll never say it enough, I LOVE cake smash sessions.  Planning out the setup, crafting the props and pulling it all together is a lot of fun.  Plus I get to put my silhouette machine to work which is always amazing to me what you can do with that thing (Hello, Silhouette USA, someone could really use a new machine since I have the original edition!!  hint, hint...I'll keep telling everyone how awesome they are!!)  For this session, I used it to create the sesame street character banner with Owens name.

Alivia | Jackson, Mi Area Photographer | Two Year Old Session http://www.amberyanovichphotography.com/blog/2018/3/alivia-jackson-mi-area-photographer-two-year-old-session Alivia is nearly three now, but last spring we had a "paint session" for her second birthday.  She had a great time applying "makeup" and painting her toenails with the brush.  She was too cute and even did a little "makeup" for grandma!  I love these paint sessions since it helps to keep the attention of little ones who may be too busy to sit still for a photo session otherwise. Plus, who doesn't like getting messy!?!?

Grove Family | Jackson, Mi Area Photographer | Family Session at Nichols Arboretum http://www.amberyanovichphotography.com/blog/2018/2/grove-family-jackson-mi-area-photographer-family-session-at-nichols-arboretum Back when the pretty trees were in blossom last year, I met up with the Grove family at one of my favorite Ann Arbor locations, the Nichols Arboretum.  Located on the medical campus of UofM I used to stroll through quite frequently while I waited for my carpool to leave work at the hospital.  Which is great for taking people there for photos since I've walked through and explored most of the Arb I know where my favorite spots are.  If you choose this location you'll be doing some walking so bring comfy shoes! :)

The Grove family met me after work one evening and we updated their photos, since their last session with me was back in I think 2013, it had been a little while!  The kids were a great age for photos since they are all big enough to listen but young enough to still have fun with it!  And they all donned their MSU gear for a photo while on UofM campus, so they win as my favorites. :)

Claire | Jackson, Mi Area Photographer | Newborn Girl Session http://www.amberyanovichphotography.com/blog/2018/2/claire-jackson-mi-area-photographer-newborn-girl-session Since I've caught up on blogging this years session I figured I'd go back to sessions from April/May of last year where I left off when life got too busy to keep up with blogging. We are quickly creeping up on this sweet girl's first birthday, (shes 10 months old right now) her mom and I are busy making plans for her cake smash session already!   Claire was a dream baby for her newborn session, she gave me a few wide-eyed shots between shuffling from family photos to her solo shots but we were able to get her right back to sleep with a little food in her belly.  As always, newborn sessions win out as my favorite and I just love that bucket shot!

Seriously, one of the cutest newborns ever.   Then at six months he was really just not sure about me and my camera but we got some cute ones of him and his beautiful momma!  This time he was more than happy to be my friend, and keep an eye on everything I was doing.  He enjoyed his cake smash until he decided he'd had enough.  Then he applied the "it's my party and I'll cry if I want to" rules.  Check out this sweet man!

Sam & Ben | Jackson, Mi Area Photographer | Engagement Session http://www.amberyanovichphotography.com/blog/2018/2/sam-ben-jackson-mi-area-photographer-engagement-session When we scheduled Sam & Ben's engagement session months ago I was really hoping that if we did a winter engagement session we'd end up with snow, but, of course, it fell right after we had our January warm up after days of freezing cold (not that I wanted to shoot a session in -11 degree temperatures either!!) Luckily they brought their adorable dog, and she automatically brightened up the day!  

I'm excited to celebrate with these guys this fall as they tie the knot, they were such a fun couple and did great together in front of the camera!

Octavia | Jackson, MI Area Photographer | Six Month Old Girl http://www.amberyanovichphotography.com/blog/2018/2/octavia-jackson-mi-area-photographer-six-month-old-girl Sweet little Octavia is six months old already.  I can hardly believe that it's been six months since this girl's newborn session!  She was all smiles for her session and I'm pretty sure she was digging the dress up.  She seems like she is such an easy going happy go lucky kind of girl.  I just love that her momma likes color just as much as I do, it always makes for some adorable and pretty images.  Mom mentioned that she wanted to do a six-month-old/half-way to one onesie for her pictures and I figured it would be a great time to break out my silhouette machine and make her a onesie!  I think it turned out adorable and I can't wait to make more for future sessions!

Elliott | Jackson, MI Area Photographer | First Birthday Donut Smash Session http://www.amberyanovichphotography.com/blog/2018/2/elliott-jackson-mi-area-photographer-first-birthday-cake-smash-session I'll apologize in advance for the massive photo dump.  (sorry, not sorry)  But Miss Elliott and I go way back, like back to the hospital when she arrived 5 weeks early and fresh as can be.  Other than my own kids, she's been the only other baby that I've gotten to do a first 48 session for (thanks to my full-time job it's not really a service I can offer to many people unless they happen to give birth on the right day of the week and my schedule allows for it!)  Also at 5 weeks early, and just 5lbs, she's the smallest newborn I've photographed.  Elliott was one of my baby plan babies so I got to see her quite a bit through her first year (Including mom & dad's wedding!).  Still though, I can't believe it's been a whole year!

Her first birthday cake smash theme was pink/snowflake.  I crafted up some giant 3D snowflakes and my tissue poofs, which I'm pretty much a professional at nowadays, and hoped that the lights I've been hoarding for a few years worked well with the backdrop.  Since I frequently make lots of decoration plans and don't do a practice set up at home before I take things to set up at a clients house I kind of just hoped it would all pull together like I planned in my mind.  We had a late change in plans when my favorite cake lady ended up sick overnight and decided not sharing germs with a one-year-old was safest. Mom and I both hit the stores to see what we could come up with, rather than postponing the session, and ended up switching from cake to perfectly pink DONUTS!!!  YUM.  I'd say Elliott was a HUGE fan, as you'll see in the photos the girl basically never let go of them once she tasted one.  Even pulling one into the bathtub with her at the end!  I'm calling it a success!

Ava | Jackson, MI Area Photographer | First Birthday Session http://www.amberyanovichphotography.com/blog/2018/2/ava-jackson-mi-area-photographer-first-birthday-session Sweet Ava came to see me for a quick little first birthday session.  Ava is almost always full of giant smiles when I see her, of course, this day, when she was the star of the show, she just wasn't having it.  We worked hard to try to coax some smiles out of her but she was in serious mode for the majority of her session.  Of all the things you can control for a photo session, babies moods will never be one of them, sometimes you just have to roll with whatever mood they are in!

Phil & Kristy | Jackson, MI Area Photographer | Tecumseh Wedding @ The Landing http://www.amberyanovichphotography.com/blog/2017/10/kristy-phil-jackson-mi-area-photographer-tecumseh-wedding-the-landing Phil and Kristy couldn't have been a better personality fit for me as ideal wedding clients if they tried. 

Their wedding day started off on a great foot when we meet up for on the Indian Trails Park Path to do their bride/bridal party & groom/groomsmen shots, rain was threating in the forecast but we had hoped to miss most of it until after the ceremony.  But, by the time we were starting with the groom and his groomsmen grey skies were rolling in and soon we were rained out by a seriously heavy downpour, despite the fact that I brought enough umbrellas for the wedding party. 

So the thing about rain, it's really NOT GREAT when you've planned an outdoor wedding that is supposed to start in 10 minutes!  After it was apparent that the rain just wasn't going to let up, they decided to do a quick bit of rearranging and the ceremony was moved from the outdoor area to the reception hall inside The Landing.  These two handled it like champs,  while my assistant and I hurried to set up our lighting for indoor photos, and the people of The Landing got set up for an indoor ceremony.  Other than the few minutes of "oh no, what are we going to do" everything flowed just like it was supposed to have happened that way. 

We were able to sneak back outside shortly after their ceremony ended for some wedding party shots under the covered awning area and when the rain finally let up we headed out into the yard to finish up.  The rest of their evening went on without a hitch with plenty of laughing and dancing.  Such a great time celebrating these two as they started their new life as husband and wife!

Aiden | Jackson, MI Area Photographer | One Year Old Firefighter Cake Smash Session http://www.amberyanovichphotography.com/blog/2017/10/aiden-jackson-mi-area-photographer-one-year-old-cake-smash-session I was so excited when Aiden's mommy let me know she was planning on a Firefighter cake smash theme AND that we'd get to do them at the fire station.   Aiden comes from a firefighter family with plenty of real-life heroes to look up to.  From the looks of how much he enjoyed being at the fire station, you're probably looking at one of the next generation of Firefighter.  Aiden was into making a mess of that cake, and his cousin just couldn't wait to have her turn at it!  Check out all this cuteness.

Michelle | Jackson, MI Area Photographer | High School Senior Session http://www.amberyanovichphotography.com/blog/2017/7/michelle-jackson-mi-area-photographer-high-school-senior-session We had a few scheduling conflicts with Michelle's senior session and resulted in going from a winter session in the city to a spring session in the park.  While it was a bit damp and chilly that morning and I made her walk across the very wet grass in flip-flops to start her morning, Michelle rocked her session, frozen toes and all.  Such a fabulous personality, you can see how fun she was just by that big smile and how playful her images are!  I keep thinking that I may stop offering senior portrait sessions in 2018 so I can focus more on what I love.  I've gotten so busy with other sessions, two kids and a full-time job on top of it all, but then I do one, I love it all over again and I'm just not sure I want to give it up!!

Ella & Madi | Jackson, MI Area Photographer | One & Three Year Old Cake Smash Session http://www.amberyanovichphotography.com/blog/2017/7/ella-jackson-mi-area-photographer-one-year-old-cake-smash-session I love, love, love how cute cake smash sessions always turn out when I collaborate with moms on a combination of mom has some random things we can use along with the random things I have and a backdrop.  I never know exactly how it will look until the day of the session when we set everything all up together, but I have never been disappointed.  Ella and Madi's session was perfectly girly and even though Ella still isn't a huge fan of being in front of the camera she still gave me a few grins...(we worked hard for those!!)  Someday she'll be a fan just like her big sister, I just know it.
