Personal updates! | Northern Michigan photography studio

It has been a whirlwind this year so far.  I have been immensely blessed in business and life in 2014.   I have had the opportunity to photograph a wide range of sessions and events, opened a photography studio in Northern Michigan, and gained many personal victories.  Here is a little bit of my journey so far this year:

January my brother and his lovely wife tied the knot.  I was honored to photograph their special day.

Shortly after, my sister got engaged to her sweetheart.  We are preparing for her August 16th wedding in which I am the maid of honor!

In March, I was honored to travel to Las Vegas and attend a conference called WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International).  What a joy it was to meet and work alongside some very talented photographers and hear some amazing speakers.  We had 4 very full days of shooting in the Valley of Fire, Nelson, and Lake Las Vegas.  Our group of 12 photographers was also accompanied by some gorgeous models and talented HMUAs.  What an experience!   (Special thanks to Damein at Streets of Las Vegas photography for this photo of all of us!)

In May, another talented photographer, Jamie Trost (Digital Storybook Photography) and I decided Northern Michigan needed a boutique photography studio and opened one downtown Cheboygan.  Studio 410 is located right next to the Kingston Theatre at 410 N. Main Street.  We are open for appointments or if you’d just like to stop in and see our work!   In the future we would like to hold workshops and even some show and tell with other photographers in the surrounding areas!  We are very lucky to have such a great space to work in… and a great town to support us!

Also this year was a journey in homeschooling my oldest and supporting my husband as he completes his nursing degree (one more year!).  My biggest blessing is being able to “work from home” so I can spend quality time with my children.  All in all a very successful 2014 so far!  Thank you so much for following and supporting my journey!  – Lindsey

Spies | Maternity | Cheboygan, MI photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing this family’s first little guy a few years ago and now they are expecting their second!  Let me say the session was a bit different this time having to keep up with a busy 2 year old!   What a joy to be able to watch family’s expand and little ones grow up!  I look forward to meeting baby #2 in just a few short weeks!
