Friend Sessions https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2017/6/friend-sessions My niece decided she wanted to take her friends on a photoshoot for her birthday and I glady obliged!!! Loved capturing their beauty and energy and especially their friendship. High School is such a whirlwind it was nice to spend an evening just celebrating them We chased the sun all the way to Dundee to capture these fun images and were rewarded with a rainbow by the end of the session!! My job is the best. I just love capturing the personalities and beauty of these young ladies. 

Enjoy! If you'd like to book your own "Friends" or Individual sessions give me a call!

#ChadTough Family Session Heidi McClelland Photography https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2015/11/chad-tough With a heavy heart I update Chad's story here tonight.  He has touched more people in his 5 short years here on this planet than most do when given 90 years... Please continue to pray for Tammi and Jason, for his brothers, his extended family, for a cure for this horrible disease, and a cure for all childhood cancers.  No families should have to go thru what the Carrs have, but they have truly walked this path with Grace, Courage, and most of all an unwavering Faith.  May Jesus wrap His arms around the Carrs, as well as Chad tonight. May it be well with our souls... 

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:4


January 13, 2015: 

I thought since little Chad is starting his clinical trial tomorrow it would be good to get this out tonight so that his prayer warriors can remember once again to pray for him and for his family.  

If you don't know Chad's story, he is the son of a friend of mine and was diagnosed this fall with DIPG, which is an inoperable brain tumor.  He has already been through radiation and came thru that like a champ, it was successful in reducing the tumor by 90%.  He still has a fight to fight though and is in New York City this week to have surgery in a clinical trial at Sloan Kettering.  To read more about his story his Mom is better with words than I am... https://www.facebookstories.com/stories/117197/chad-tough

Just before he started his radiation we were able to do a photoshoot for his family, and this was the result.  We were blessed with a beautiful fall day and a beautiful location thanks to some great friends.  For me it was such a gift to be able to watch and capture this family interacting with one another, in the moment, happy, loving, enjoying each little hug, laugh and even some pretty flowers, and their new puppy Tootie.  One of the most moving experiences I have had in my career, to watch and capture this little victor, his brave brothers, and parents get ready to fight the fight of their lives.  I am praying that these images will be cherished memories for them for a very long time as a reminder of the start of a winning battle.  So please if you are seeing these, say a prayer for Chad and for his family, for the doctors and nurses as they care for him and the other patients fighting childhood cancer, and share with your friends and ask them to pray, as they move into this next step in the treatment of this disease. 

To follow Chads story, and get updates please visit his Pray for Chad Carr page... 

Thank you!

Kids Session- The Schneiders https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2015/1/kids-session--the-schneiders I have been blessed to be able to photograph these kids for 3 years now and every time it is so much fun.  I love watching them interact with each other, and watching their personalities come out at each new session.  This fall they came to see me at my One Room Schoolhouse Studio, and they even brought their new pal Huck! Their super cute vintage inspired outfits were the best for our afternoon at the studio.  Here are a few my favorite images from the session... enjoy!  2015-01-02_00612015-01-02_0061 2015-01-02_00582015-01-02_0058 2015-01-02_00662015-01-02_0066 2015-01-03_00022015-01-03_0002 2015-01-02_00652015-01-02_0065 2015-01-02_00632015-01-02_0063 2015-01-02_00642015-01-02_0064 2015-01-03_00012015-01-03_0001 2015-01-02_00622015-01-02_0062 2015-01-02_00602015-01-02_0060

Family Session- The DePriests https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2015/1/family-session--the-depriests Finally getting around to catching up on blogging some of the sessions that I did this summer and I am starting with this one... this family is amazing, I am truly blessed to call them my friends and I hope that you can see thru the images what a wonderful family they are.  They have so much love for one another, and it just shines wherever they go. That sounds so cliche and just like something that everyone might write, but  I am much better at pictures than words.  My friend Sarah is the one with the beautiful words... but here are the images, I hope you can get just a glimpse of how special they are from my little point of view.  Thank you Sarah, Tim, Mattie and Jonah for being fantastic friends, beautiful people, and for sharing with the world what love looks like!

Mike and Amanda Married- Heidi McClelland Photography Weddings https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2014/11/mike-and-amanda-married--heidi-mcclelland-photography-weddings I have known this family for what seems like a lifetime, and when Mike contacted me to let me know that he and Amanda were engaged I was super excited to get to photograph another wedding for this fun group of people.  I photographed Amandas sister just last year and when Mike and Amanda asked me to photograph their big day I was thrilled.  Their fall day was just gorgeous, full of love, family and joy (oh and a few mosquitoes... it is Michigan after all).  Thanks to the Morrison and Konarske families for such a beautiful day to photograph. If you or someone you know is planning a wedding in Southeast Michigan or anywhere (I travel!) I'd love to hear from you.

It was a gorgeous Southeast Michigan day full of love, family, and the beautiful colors of Fall.  I am blessed to have been able to photograph their gorgeous day.  From the color of the leaves to the colors in the bouquets, the smell of the delicious food, the crackling campfire, to the bright orange and yellows of the pumpkins scattered around the property... it was Pure Michigan beauty at its best. Thank you Cari and Jason for having me, and thank you to Zingermans Cornman Farms for such a beautiful setting to work in.  If you are looking at a having a wedding in Southeast Michigan or beyond (I travel!) and you would like to chat about what I can offer in capturing your day please contact me, I'd love to meet with you.  I am now booking for 2015 and beyond.

Matilda Janes https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2014/7/matilda-janes I have been photographing these lovely little ladies for 3 years now and it is so much fun watching them grow up.  Ms. Ellie was just a little baby when we first met and I just love to see how big she and the other girls get every time I get to see them.  

We did this session at my One Room Schoolhouse studio and it was a perfect fit for the vintage inspired Matilda Jane dresses that they wore.  A little bit of vintage with a little bit of fun. So pretty.  Mom even got in for a few images and I am so glad she did.  They played ring a round the rosie with a twist ("we all fall down" turned into "we all spin around" so we didn't get the pretty dresses dirty).  

Looking forward to the next time I get to see them! 

If you are interested in scheduling a session for your Family contact me today! I'd love to hear from you.

Great Grandparents https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2014/6/great-grandparents I had the true honor last week of capturing something so special. Not that every shoot isn't special in it's way, but this one was truly one of my favorites.  Great Grandfather and Great Grandkids. Generations.  There was a timelessness about this shoot that I can't explain with words, from the way the light was shining down on them, or maybe it was  the love between them, whatever it was, it was just beautiful, and I am so beyond blessed to get to capture these kinds of images for families.  To know that the images that are being created are something that will be looked at for generations to come is a blessing, and I am so beyond amazed that I get to call this my job.   Thank you Gilbert Family!

Cousins https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2014/6/cousins I love to photograph families and cousins, and these guys were no exception.  We had a beautiful morning and some expert "Grandpa" help for the shoot this morning.  There was fun, there were M & M's and there were great big kid helpers too.  Thank you to the F and M families for the great morning! Enjoy your peek!

Vintage Styled Shoot- Sloane

One Room Schoolhouse Studio

It's Sloane's turn for the blog!  I had so much fun with this shoot, from the beginning when I spotted these dresses at The ReSale Boutique in Saline, MI I knew I wanted to shoot them at the new studio space. The "Cow Palace", as it's affectionately known in my family, was an old town hall on my grandparents (now cousins) property.  My grandparents moved it to their farm in the 1960's from just down the road.  It makes the perfect backdrop for this kind of vintage shoot.  This dress from the time I saw it reminded me of a soft romaticism, a modern version of the grace and elegance of 1930's style. Sloane was the perfect model. Her young grace and beauty were a perfect match to the soft pink vintage dress and she brought her cowboy boots which was added fun!  I hope you enjoy some of the images I captured.  A true beauty she is inside and out.

Vintage-Styled Love Shoot
One Room School Studio 
McKenzie and Nate
These two are quite possibly the cutest couple ever.  They have known each other since they were small children in Sunday School class together. They went to each others proms, and now are engaged!  When planning for this styled shoot at the new studio space, I knew I wanted to include them.  They are who I think of when I think of adorable all American couple.  The concept for this shoot came from finding vintage inspired dresses at The ReSale Boutique in Saline, MI.  Combining the inspiration of the dress, hair style by McKenzie's Mom Karen,  make up by Amanda Sumrall & John Haltunnen, the evening light, and location, it turned into something as a photographer I was truly ecstatic to shoot.  Thank you McKenzie and Nate, looking forward to great things in your future.  Stay tuned to the blog to see more from this shoot in the days to come... I'm just getting started!  So excited to share with you the fun things going on at my new studio space.

Rachel and Alex Married https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2014/1/rachel-and-alex-married I met Rachel and Alex through their flower girls who were previous clients of mine.  I was so blessed to be part of their lives on this special day.  We first met at their engagement session at MSU, stay tuned for the images from that session (but you can preview one of their images on the cover page of the website)!  But for now, skip forward with me to the wedding.  It took place beachside in St. Joseph Michigan. We had a little rain, we had a little sun (no snow thank goodness) but it was a beautiful day, filled with lots of love.  Rachel and her mom put in lots of work in getting every detail just right, from the flowers that a family member arranged to the horse and carriage for Rachel and her Uncle to arrive at the wedding in and everything in between.  Thank you Rachel and Alex for choosing me to document the rain and the shine! Here's to a beautiful future for some fantastic people!!

Special Ladies https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2014/1/special-ladies Catching up on blog posts, with the resolution to be better at it in 2014.  No better gals to start with than these two.  Precious Ava and her Mom. I know this session was not easy for either of them, and little Ava showed us how she felt with her Daddy inspired face the first time we attempted the shoot.  But by the second try she was ready to go outside, give some hugs and smiles.   They went through so much in 2013, I'm praying that 2014 brings them beautiful old memories and fun new ones.  Since I am better with pictures than with words, I will leave you to them.  Thanks for stopping by!  DSC_9724EDSC_9724E DSC_9689EDSC_9689E DSC_3063EDSC_3063E Untitled-4Untitled-4 DSC_3009EDSC_3009E DSC_3301EDSC_3301E DSC_3373EDSC_3373E DSC_3141EDSC_3141E

2013 A Year in Pictures https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2013/12/2013-a-year-in-pictures
I am so blessed to do what I love.  2013 was no exception.  I was blessed to capture memories for families from birth and beyond and everything in between. I was there to capture growing children who I have been privileged to photograph over and over, and I was there to meet and photograph new faces and friends for the first time.  My camera and I were there to capture the weddings of some beautiful couples, high school seniors getting a special day just for them, and kids of all ages and their families.  The following are some of my favorites from the sessions in 2013.  Enjoy the slideshow.  If you make it all the way through it leave me a comment on the blog and let me know your favorite!  

To all of you who I call friends, family, and clients, both near and far, thank you for making 2013 a wonderful year.  I wish you many more beautiful memories for 2014, and look forward to meeting new faces! Happy New Year from Heidi McClelland Photography!

Lilacs are one of my favorite flowers.  Took advantage of the beautiful spring weather we have been having to do a styled shoot with this lovely lady and the lilac blooms.  I really wanted to do a few styled shoots that featured spring flowers before the heat of summer arrives.  The lilacs since they are my favorite were the first in the series, to be followed soon by the delicate dogwoods.  To schedule your own styled, family,  or creative shoot, please contact me at [email protected].

Dancers https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2012/8/Dancers I have always wanted to learn how to dance.  Never have though.  Guess I will settle for taking pictures of dancers.  This week I got the chance to capture images of two beautiful dancers for their senior portraits.  As my not so old legs were tired from getting up and down to get just the right angle with my camera, these ladies were on their toes and doing leaps in the street and in downtown Ann Arbor! I thoroughly enjoy creating one of a kind images that suit each persons personality.  I hope it shows in my images, even if I can’t dance. DSC_9675E

Mr. Baby D https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2012/8/Mr-Baby-D Just spent the evening chillin’ with Mr. D.  I was priveleged to photograph his Mom and Dad at their wedding, and today I got to capture some images of a sweet little man!  He cooperated wonderfully (as most of my clients seem to do, I love my job!) and we got some great pictures for Grandma and Grandpa’s wall!

Summer Sun. Summer Fun. https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2012/7/Summer-Sun-Summer-Fun Spent the evening last night with the G family.  They are an awesome and very busy family keeping up with a 1 year old, 4 year old, and 6 year old, and we had some fun capturing some images of the energy!  Here are a few of the images from their Family Session.  If you are interested in booking a session, please see my Investment page.  I am now booking for August and September… and before you know it it will be time to start thinking about (GASP!) Christmas cards! If you have questions or would like to book a session please call me at 734-645-728o or email at [email protected]

Miss K https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2012/7/Miss-K Had a great time the other night with Miss K.  It was HOT though, so we had some fun down by the creek, and I soaked myself getting some of these shots by standing in the creek, but she thought it was pretty funny and I got cooled off so it was a win-win.  Some of my favorites from this session are of her “waiting for the train” which doesn’t move and is just a caboose, but the kids just love.  It’s our local Depot Museum, and the lighting is just awesome here in the evenings.  My new (old) props worked perfect with her pretty vintage inspired dress.  One of these days I’m going to have to do a Paddington Bear themed shoot at this location!  Contact me if you are interested! 734-645-7280

Downtown https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2012/6/Downtown Lots of projects being finished up today before the holiday weekend.  One of which included editing a Senior shoot from the other day… it was a beautiful night downtown.  Glad that the shoot was the other day, before it got to be 100+ degrees.   Stay cool, and have a great weekend and Happy 4th of July!

Spent last evening playing at the park with some really fun kiddos! It was a beautiful day and there were lots of other people at the park, but we managed to carve out a space of our own and have some fun.  Here is a sneak peek of some of the shots we got…

Grey Skies Smiling at Me https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2012/5/Grey-Skies-Smiling-at-Me Imageapril-22-2006-0171 It is a grey day here, but grey can be pretty and I am hoping that the rain holds off long enough to get in the shoot I have scheduled tonight.  I am doing portraits for a group of friends who are graduating from their Residency Program in a few weeks.  I’m looking forward to it, and the grey skies will be a nice backdrop as long as they don’t start dropping wet stuff on us!

Back in Time https://www.heidimcclellandphotography.com/blog/2012/5/Back-in-Time Images can transport us to a different place, old memories, old friends, great times.  Today I was priveledged to go on a field trip with my daughter’s class to a one-room school house to experience grade school in the early 1900′s.  We played “Graces” and walked on stilts (those of you who know me know that game is  lost on me). I was able to catch some pictures for them to remember the day by, as they remembered a different time.  Here are a couple of my favorites…dsc_8484e dsc_8378ewm
