Petoskey, Michigan sunset
The sky was clear and I had been itching to fly my drone. It was a cold evening but the sun made it feel just a bit warmer. Gorgeous Petoskey Michigan sunset high above Lake Michigan.
I arrived late to the show, about ten minutes to sun down.
My drone pre-check went quick and off I went.
There were a ton of gulls in the are. In fact, one almost ran into my drone!
People were out on the lighthouse pier, in the harbor, and along the Lake Michigan shoreline.
I used the lighthouse and clock to shield the bright sun from my lens.
The long shadow the lighthouse put off was really cool!
I like the colors, composition, and the peacefulness of all of the images.
It was a wonderful evening along the lakeshore.
Lots more of these coming this Summer!
Come north and enjoy our paradise.

Easter 2017 Alpena Michigan family eggs, food, fun
A mild Easter 2017 after a heavy rain brought an egg hunt with the family. Easter 2017 Alpena Michigan family eggs, food, fun
The kids are at the age that they all love the Easter egg hunt.
We find that separating the eggs works best so there are not fights.
The older kids have the left side with more eggs and the younger daughter gets the right side with less eggs.
In the end, everyone is happy, including the parents. 🙂
The Easter bunny tends to set the eggs on the same familiar trail every year.
The kids do not seem to mind.
My oldest daughter said that the egg hunt is her favorite thing to do on Easter.
This egg hunt trumps the Easter basket hunt where they receive lots more goodies!
Here are s0me fun images from Easter 2017.

Boyne Mountain family Photography winter ski session Paul Retherford
The last weekend at Boyne Mountain brought the sun, mild weather, and perfect spring conditions for skiing. This family was initially booked for Boyne Highlands but they were closed. We rescheduled our shoot to Boyne Mountain family Photography winter ski session Paul Retherford.
The whole idea for the photography session was Christmas cards.
The mother and father did not want any images of themselves, but I managed a few cute images with them included.
We all had a nice time climbing around the mountain and capturing fun images of the girls on skis and snowboards.
The skies were bright blue and the beaming sun made it feel like almost 70 degrees outside.
It was the middle of the day so the sun was high but we managed to work with the harsh light and create amazing images.
If you are looking for a family session at Boyne Mountain Resort please call me at 231-445-1793.
Enjoy these few images!
