When I first met Diane I was struck by how parallel our lives were - we both shot with Nikons, we both had sons who were seniors at New Trier, and by far the most resonating - we both spent our summers up in Northern Michigan. I was thrilled that Diane had mangaged to balance her responsibilities at the studio with her family’s love of spending summers up north. And so, like Diane did for many years before me, in a couple weeks I will pack up the kids, our three dogs, our bird and the hamster and transplant our family to Leland, Michigan for most of the summer. The Wilmette studio will be open by appointment only after June 13th, and will not officially re-open until August 18th. I will be checking phone messages and will be accessible via email thoughout the summer, and if your vacation plans should happen to take you to the Leelanau Peninsula, please call the studio to make arrangements if you are interested in an outdoor session!
