Mike + Candace Brennan

Ahhhhh.  Is all I can say right now!

This adorable couple were married on the most beautiful property in Wales, Michigan.  I was so honored to photograph them back in the fall for their engagement session (http://www.tracilovasz.com/blog/2017/9/12/mike-and-candace-belle-isle-engagement) and then again just last weekend.  It was the most intimate, fun wedding to be a part of.  

Looking back at this day and remembering all of the smiles I captured and witnessed has me a little emotional!   You can really tell how much your brides and grooms are loved by just looking at them smile and the love that just pours over them from each guest.

It really is a special job!!  

Enjoy this preview of their spectacular day....and yes, they even had a rustic barn!!

ps-Candice's parents MADE the wreath hanging on one of the barns!

 

March!

Hi Friends!

I am sure all of you can relate to what Holiday weekends are like...busy, busy, and busier!

Well, it was my youngest son's 5th Birthday on Saturday so we are still somewhat recovering!

But, look at that face!!  All worth it!!

Here are some photos from Palm Sunday and Easter....

Life is going at a super fast speed and March was great!  I've met new clients and visited with existing too!  Here is little recap of March sessions.  

There are still Summer dates available and some openings for Mini Sessions!  Don't forget to check them out and book your date for 2018 Summer/Fall!

'Tis the season....

I LOVE the Holidays, but HATE winter.  Who is with me?! 

This profession is not always the most fun in the winter, or is it?!

It leaves me being a little bit more creative with light sources and gives me the opportunity to do more of my Lifestyle Sessions.  If you've been following me for sometime you'll know these are at the top of my list.  So, if you have the milestone Birthday, Newborn, or Maternity-this could be for you!

I will leave these here of my boys at our home, that is never "finished" (old home with endless work) or ever perfectly cleaned.

Enjoy! AND Cheers to December!

2018 Update!

Hi and WELCOME!

First off, thank you for reading!  

I wanted to share a few updates for the new year and tell you a little bit about myself and my business.

I am a mother of two boys and have been married to my husband Jeff for 8 years.  This is us!  (see photo below) 

To anyone with growing children you understand how busy life can be!  The older they get the crazier our schedules become.  This being one of the reasons I write this.....hang with me, I'll wrap it up soon!

I have been in the business for about 4 years now and it does not feel possible!  I am extremely grateful for all of my clients who I have grown with from year to year.  This past year I really began to build my Wedding business, which I LOVE!  Although, the time it took away from my family was a struggle.  In 2018 and for the foreseeable future, I am going to be taking limited weddings.  PSA-if you are looking to schedule your wedding 2018 is about fully booked.

Through the years I have found my passion to be around Newborn (Lifestyle), Children, Family, and Seniors.  I love the time I spend with my clients and the gift of memories captured.  

I feel that this has been where my business has thrived!  I am to the point of booking several months in advance which is a dream and again, so very grateful!  

If you or anyone you know is looking to book a 2018 session I am going to be releasing PRIME dates that you can reserve between January and August.  If you book your date between now and December 31, 2017 you receive a special gift with your session and a $25 print credit!  

Stay tuned tomorrow for a link that will be published on my website, Facebook, and Instagram to view available dates.

Happy Thanksgiving to each and everyone one of you!

ps-to show a little humility and because if you're here, you love photos.  Below is one of my very first outdoor shoots and one of my most recent.  Because of all of you I have been able to grow, develop, AND get lots of practice!! xo

First outdoor shoot with one of my all time favorite clients!  She and her family have stuck with me from the beginning!

During this journey so far I have found my way into Lifestyle Photography. The unposed sessions that allow movement, laughter, and your family to be themselves.  Not to mention, exposure!

 

 

The Hohn Family

It has been a while that I have blogged a session, it's October which is like what December is for retailers.  So it's been a little crazy over here!  I'm not complaining, just so very grateful to photograph such amazing people!  

Here is the Hohn Family and it sure is starting to feel like Autumn(I've been saying this for a month).
