Capturing All of Life’s Moments

Nicole and Charlie were married in 2014, which is where they first heard of Allebach Photography. Mike got to spend the day with them, capturing all of those special moments that unfold on a wedding day.

Now, almost 6 years later, they have two beautiful daughters who love each other, only in a way that sisters can. (I should know… I have two beautiful sister of my own, as well as two daughters.)

The love Juniper and Iris have for each other is only rivaled by the love and affection Nicole and Charlie have for their girls and each other.

Seriously, how lucky am I to get to be a part of this family’s story? To know that the artwork we designed together will be displayed in their home for years to come gives me goosebumps.

Tell me about your family!

From Artist to Mom

I had the honor of meeting Melissa in college. I remember looking up to her as such a beautiful and strong woman and crazy talented artist.

Now that she is this amazing mother of two boys, my respect and admiration of her has grown ten-fold.

Jackson and Memphis are such loving and vicarious little men. They feed off of each other and love their mama so, SO much! They have soaked up so much of her warmth, creativity, and convictions.

I want to get to know you too!

Describe Your Child in Three Words

It’s hard to do, right? How can you encapsulate everything about your child into three tiny words?

My three favorite to date describe this handsome little guy:

Tenacious | Precocious | Inquisitive

That is exactly how Amber described her son, Wilson. So let’s break down those words and why they so perfectly describe him.

te·na·cious/ adjective

not readily relinquishing a position, principle, or course of action; determined

Wilson, right off the bat, positioned himself as in control as he could possibly be. He totally ran the session and it was worth letting him do so. He worked the camera and worked every moment to his advantage, in the best way possible of course.

pre·co·cious/ adjective

(of a child) having developed certain abilities or proclivities at an earlier age than usual.

Amber being a teacher, Wilson already had a leg up on the other children his age. But you can see in his eyes, his desire to learn and grow. He wants to know it all and soak it in!

in·quis·i·tive/ adjective

curious or inquiring. intrigued.

Going hand in hand with his precocious nature, Wilson is so curious about anything and everything he doesn’t know yet. His mind is buzzing with questions and mom’s got all the answers!

So tell me about your children! http://www.meetme.so/allebachphone

Unbreakable Bond

I remember the first time I read Gemma’s story, I knew immediately that this experience would be important for her to have.

Liam is her world. Her sun, her moon, and her stars. He is there for her when she needs an emotional anchor and he also knows when she needs a moment alone.

I remember her describing him as a true gentleman and even calling him a “little mayor” and the moment I met him, I understood what she meant. He has a gentle confidence about him that can command a room and calm a soul.

They are truly lucky to have each other and it was an incredible honor to capture portraits showing their love, care, affection, and respect for one another. Sometimes it’s hard to meet a child, or a parent, where they are emotionally, but Gemma and Liam have that down pat!

Beauty & Science

When Yana emailed to have her Renaissance of Mom portrait done, I was ecstatic! Her and her husband, Ryan, had come in previously for couples boudoir with Mike, so I was already familiar with how fun loving they are.

Emma was a total delight to photograph. She loved having her portraits done and her eyes sparkled when I showed her the images we captured.

By far, my favorite part about photographing this amazing family was when we got to recreate one of Emma’s favorites things to do.

SCIENCE!

Seeing Emma’s eyes light up when the volcano erupted was magical! Her exploration of science has only just begun and I can’t wait to hear of all the amazing things she will do with that curiosity!

Celebrating Single Moms

When Allison shared her story with me, I knew this experience would mean a lot to her. Raising children on your own is never easy, let alone three boys! Speaking with her, I knew she was a total badass super mom. She’s surely got her hands full and she’s a pro; but we were stoked to help her wrangle these little munchkins for their photos.

“I was hoping to just enjoy the experience and not worry about looking posed or getting something “perfect.” The truth is my life is insane with three little boys and if that’s what the photos showed, I would be happy with it!”

“Everyone made it easy to wrangle three very energetic boys and not put pressure on me or them.”

Allison, it was our pleasure!

The Renaissance of Sisterhood

I met Ashley through her sister, Eryn, who is a wonderful friend of mine. I even flew out to Detroit last year to photograph Ashley’s family! That trip was actually a pivotal moment in my life that lead me to working here at Allebach Photography, so her presence in my life will always be precious to me.

When we launched the Renaissance of Mom, I was ecstatic Ashley responded.

“I have always been the little big sister. The little sister that tried to plan my big sister’s life because obviously I knew better. When she and her husband had a baby, that is where our roles and relationship changed.”


“My sister Eryn made pregnancy make sense. We bonded and got closer than ever and she became the big sister. She became who I leaned on, who I trusted when the stress got to me, who I looked to, to help make things less confusing.

“We are closer and stronger now than ever and want our boys to feel the same. Our sons, upon their first meeting and thereafter, grab hands and light up when they see each other. They have a bond we want to foster until the day we can’t anymore and I want to cherish all moments where they are together.”

Photographing Ashley and Eryn with their boys was one of the most beautiful and emotional sessions for me. I love them both dearly, they are like family to me, but seeing their bond and the love Bash and Addy have for each other is an experience I know they will cherish for a lifetime. Being a part of this is certainly something I will cherish.

The Renaissance of Motherhood

I remember speaking to Vanessa on the phone about her pregnancy and raising three children, as well as being a stepmom to teenage son. I thought to myself, “How does she do it?” Both Vanessa and her husband are in the military and she is raising their children through such a tough job. To say I was impressed by her is an understatement and I knew how important this experience was going to be for her.

“I was pregnant with my 4th and last baby and determined to get beautiful pictures that captured the beauty and power of motherhood. Knowing I’ll never experience pregnancy again, this photoshoot was extremely important to me. I wanted to capture my family and body in its current state so that I could look back on it years from now when my kids are grown up and be reminded of this incredibly special time.”

“My kids are 5, 3, and 2 and I know how challenging it is to get even one good picture of them. Erika’s energy and playfulness really got them to open up and feel comfortable which resulted in beautiful, natural moments captured on camera! The results were better than I could have hoped for!”

“My favorite part of the whole experience was the reveal at the end of the photo shoot. Seeing myself on the screen looking so regal was one thing, but then seeing the amazing pictures of my babies with Taylor Swifts “Never Grow Up” as the soundtrack was too much to handle, my husband and I both choked back the tears.”
