Anyone else starting to get a little bit of those winter blues?  You know- after the excitement of the first snow, the magic and hustle & bustle of Christmas, and then the anticipation of an amazing new year.  When everything dies down and you find yourself in the dead of winter with no real plans and the sun is set by 5:00pm.  Okay, so that sounded a little depressing.  But I know you’ve been there.  I can’t be the only one.

It’s sessions like this one that give me a little spark between the cold winter days where we’re locked inside feeling like that warm summer glow is never coming back.  The truth is, it was just another chilly (but warm for us- above 40 degrees) rainy, January day in Northwest Ohio/Southeast Michigan.  But we got to feel like we were roaming the desert and some tropical rainforest for a day.

I’ve been spotting this location lately on my social media feed.  And let me tell you, the Belle Isle Conservatory in Detroit did not disappoint!  It was the perfect place for a winter engagement session that still gave us all the natural light feels.  Nina and Graham have been together nearly a decade and are finally tying the knot this October.  When she initially emailed me the date, I responded back to clarify that they were indeed going to be getting married on a Sunday.  Her response was “I’m an avid college football watcher (and so are many of my family members) so Saturdays in the fall are off limits for us!!”  They might be rooting for a different team, but I can get on board with that!  They are planning a beautiful and unique wedding right in the heart of Detroit.  I am so excited to be a part of their wedding day this fall.  I also have to point out the fact that Nina has one of the most stunning and unique engagement rings I have ever seen!  It’s seriously enough to take your breath away.
