2 for 1 Weddings

I love performing ceremonies as much as I love photographing couples getting married. So how can I pull it off and tackle the ceremony providing great photos while officiating? EASY, my hubby, John, of nearly 25 years is also a pro wedding photographer!

Photograph-Officiate-Weddings-Michigan

At first, he was learning and filling in for short simple ceremonies for those eloping, and I would do the after ceremony pictures. But now I like some of his shots better than my own. And of course he likes mine. What’s great is that couples get a double blessing/the best of both worlds: I officiate, while he photographs the ceremony, then we often work together before and after the ceremony. So they have two photographers on site to capture every moment.

Don’t miss out. Book now while we still have free dates available.

And remember to ask us about our 2 for 1 specials! We’d love to help you capture all the amazing moments as they unfold on your special day and stay well within your budget 🙂

BOOK REVIEW: A Teen on the Run

Run For Your Life Book Cover_edited-1

This book “Run for Your Life” is based on a true life story.

RUNNING FROM ABUSE & BULLYING

All my life since I can first remember, I was running from dirty hands and roaming fingers. Close neighbors even abused me. When I babysat up the street, the ladies husband raped me. It didn’t matter where I went, abuse always followed.

I knew my parents wouldn’t believe me, so I held all the abuse in for years.

In school I was tormented and bullied by other kids, until one day I fought back. I won the fight, by chance, and was labeled the new school bully. It felt good to have that power at first. But that created more fear and more bullying, because there was always someone bigger and tougher.

RUNNING TO LOVE & FREEDOM

At 13, I met who I thought was the love of my life. I was in junior high, he was in high school and 4 years older than me. We became inseparable. I couldn’t breathe without him. We began skipping school to be together.

The courts became involved. I was placed on house arrest and forbidden to see him. We met secretly. He had a brilliant idea… we could run away, then no one could stop us from being together.

RUNNING ACROSS THE US

We began hitchhiking across the USA. Soon we found ourselves running from more than the law. Unknowingly we took rides from some of America’s Most Wanted.

We were kidnapped and beaten. I was raped and nearly killed more times than I can count. Even worse, my boyfriend turned on me.

Puppy & Dog Training in Michigan

Wolf Dog

Puppy Aggression

Can puppies be aggressive and learn aggressive behavior? Absolutely. I see this in my private training sessions every day. But Colter here is part Wolf and German Shepherd. At only four months old he was highly aggressive and ready to eat me when I stepped inside the gate.

He was growling viciously and biting his owners. His food aggression was over the top. And he was constantly jumping up.

Picture Perfect

This picture was taken at the end of our one hour training session. His owners kept asking, “Wow, is this even the same dog.”

By the end of the hour, he was kissing our hands instead of biting, playing instead of viciously growling, learning to sit politely and be petted, and taking food a lot more nicely.

Keeping It Positive

logo-10

At Positive Engagements we’re all about keeping it real, simple and positive. Our methods are gentle, but firm and we use positive reinforcements and rewards to encourage good behaviors. We teach owners how to discipline appropriately in a gentle manner, so that the dog never feels bad, but is able to recover quickly and overcome any bad behaviors and learn to be obedient. We do a full evaluation on each and every dog prior to beginning any training, to be sure we are approaching training the best way possible for that specific dog.

Wedding & Family Photography

logo-10.png

Things Were Scary!

This past year, my husband of 24 years, John had to be off work for several months due to a work related injury. Having no income other than from my part-time random dog training jobs, bills were piling up, and I knew I had to do something and fast.

Beautiful Pictures:

For over 20 years I had taken photographs of my family, friends, pets, weddings, other events, nature, etc, and even won some ribbons at the local fair for my prized entries. People always commented on how beautiful my pictures were, so I decided I’d give pro photography a shot. Besides, with all the bills piling up, what did I have to lose?

Raving Reviews:

Although I had a bit of nerves as I went to shoot each wedding, I enjoyed the romantic setting and family photos so much that I totally fell in love with photography. But the icing on the cake is when my clients saw their finished projects in physical prints, CD/DVD’s, and their high resolution online digital prints and were so elated they gave me amazing reviews. Check out these 5 Star Reviews

Big Pay Off!

Not only was I able to pay off all my cameras and equipment during that first crazy year, but my husband’s whopping medical expenses too. 2015 was a great year for wedding photography. But I also photographed teens (senior portraits), newborns, toddlers, babies, children, birthday parties, families, anniversary parties, and other amazing events. I even entered some portraits at the county fair and took home a couple blue ribbons! There are a variety of photo galleries that you can check out on my pro photography website if you like.
