I want to get photos taken of my 6 month old. I might just do JC Penney, but I would like to look into photographers.

Anybody have a good recommendation for a photographer?

Thanks

I don't know where you are located, but our local favorite up in here in N. Oakland County is Gerri at GEM Photography: http://gemphotographymi.com/

I second the recommendation for Lesley! She's very sweet, and since she's a mom herself, she has a real eye for capturing those precious moments!

AND on top of doing GREAT work and charging VERY reasonable prices, Gerri is doing a fund raiser for LLL of Lake Orion. She is selling $50 gift cards for $35, and ten dollars of THAT goes to LLL of Lake Orion. If you're in her area, let her know about the fund raiser, and you'll get an even better deal for beautiful pics!

Hi steph!
Aw, thanks for the kind words guys . Due to the new little one in my life I'm not currently doing any shoots, but you can see some of my pics here for future reference (the first few are of me but not by me ). It's likely that I will get back into this at some point, but I can't be away from Sophie long enough right now, so it's a no go .

Mama to M (7/05) and S (5/08) my surprise !!!
