Lakeside Anniversary Session in Traverse City, Michigan | Brian + Denise


Brian + Denise

Mom and Dad to me. This is a love story 28 years in the making and, for obvious reasons, an extremely special one to me.

While Up North in our favorite summer spot since 2009 (which makes this even more overflowing with meaning) I was able to sneak away with my parents to photograph them as a gift for their anniversary + 28 years of love and sacrifice to one another. Not a lot of people get the chance to photograph their parents like this and I’m so glad they entrusted me to do so. It was beyond moving that they allowed me to step behind my lens to photograph their love and WOW they are naturals. I don’t inherit my camera shyness from them.

To be able to see my parents so comfortable with each other and with me to lower their guards and allow me (and you!) to see their love up close and to see them act like newlyweds has been one of the most memorable experiences I have shared with them. I’ll stop typing before I get carried away and let my beautiful parents + these stunning snaps do the rest of the talking.
