Big blue eyes like our big blue lake https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2018/4/big-blue-eyes-like-our-big-blue-lake  

This little guy. I could just eat him up. He wasn't shy for even a 1/2 second. From the time they got here he gave me nothing but smiles and eyebrow raises. We started with some family photos where he clearly cannot get close enough to his mama and needs to chew on her chin for a hot sec. And he would just laugh and laugh as we did. As we moved to his photos by him self he just couldn't stop with all the faces and smiles. We unleashed his chubby thighs he was so proud to show off his BFF's, his toes.

She's one of those young at heart, positive, outgoing women that you just want to be besties with. It was a blast spending the evening with her as she laughed her way to her 40th birthday.

Hedgehog tags along to senior photo shoot! https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2018/4/hedgehog-comes-to-a-senior-photo-shoot Whenever a client asks if they can bring their pet to their photo session, we usually assume it's going to be a dog. Tamrah stepped up the pet game and not only brought her adorable weiner dog, Otto, but she also brought one of her pet hedgehogs as well! We started in our studio before heading out to Presque Isle in Marquette Michigan to use the October fall colors and Lake Superior. The hedgehog had to stay behind, but Otto joined us for a photo as we drove around the island. Just overall awesome. 

I love when our seniors bring something that is important and unique to their sessions. We make sure that we create the portraits our grads want.

Making history at the History Museum: Brinn & Derek's elegant August wedding https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2018/4/brinn-and-derek-august-12 August fast became my favorite month for weddings. Here in the Upper Peninsula we have a small window of "you're guaranteed good weather" if what you’re looking for is 70s and sunny. This last wedding season we began our August of weddings with a double hitter. I was Chatum with Udy and Eric and Ashley was in Marquette with Brinn and Derek.

BD_004BD_004Brinn's goregous dress!
Brinn and her gals got ready at the Landmark Inn in Marquette.  Brinn gave the gals a twirl to show off her dress and everyone was in awe!

I love photographing the details of the day. It can be easy to forget what you wore and why. Having a photo to look back on reminds you of the importance of why you chose to wear those items. 
All the small details that Brinn was wearing for the big day. Her mom helped her put on her jewelry and was smiling from ear to ear. Hugs were plentiful. 

Afterwards, we headed across the street to the the iconic Peter White Public Library where we captured some more "ooh's and ahh's" and just enjoyed the gorgeous weather. Her bridesmaids all shared in the enjoyment. I loved the different pink flowers in the bouquets! 
BD_151BD_151When all your gals are there to smile on your big day.  
Brinn and Derek had their ceremony at the Marquette Regional History Center.  Their reception followed inside of the center. 
I loved the arch they had for their ceremony. It matched the girls flowers and dresses perfectly.
Where do you head to for bridal party photos? Lake Superior of course!  It's hard not to find a gorgeous backdrop for photos where we live. The lake is always sought after and it was only a few minutes away from the History Center. 
Pinks, golds, black, and petals filled the reception area. I love the History Center as a place for receptions. The best thing is the bottom level is filled with all windows letting so much natural light in. And the top level can be accessed to look down on the reception area. 
BD_423BD_423A gorgeous tiered cake with cascading flowers that matched the reception hall and the flowers from the bouquet. BD_481BD_481In the upper level of the Marquette Regional History Center. Such a gorgeous backdrop!
Brinn and Derek enjoyed their first dance together as their friends all gathered on the top level to watch on. It was a really sweet moment. Do you notice the name of the hall? How sweet right?! 
BD_548BD_548The bridal party gathered together to watch their friend's enjoy their first dance as husband and wife.
Derek's mother joined the dance floor afterwards for the "mother/son" dance. While dancing, the music changed to "Du Hast" by Rammstein. It was something his mother had planned as a surprise. Everyone loved it! Afterwards they shared a hug and the rest of the guests and bridal party danced the night away. 
BD_342BD_342Brinn and Derek shortly after saying "I Do".

Yoopers at Heart https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2018/4/yoopers-at-heart I had the honor of photographing Monica and Kyle for their engagement session and wedding in 2016. The couple had recently relocated to Marquette form below the bridge. They fell in love with the UP and quickly called it home. Months after the wedding they learned they were pregnant and decided to move back downstate to be closer to family. They're yooper hearts broke a little. Mine did too as Monica and I hit it off really well and I was excited to have her as a new friend. Not willing to ever give up the Yoop (or me) completely, they travel back pretty often and soak up all the goodness they can. I was lucky enough to visit with them and their new boy David for his 6 month session. He's got HAIR FOR DAYS, and loves his mom and dad so much. 

Lucky for me the story will continue, they'll be back in a few months for his one year session!!!

Little explorers https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2018/3/little-explorers I met L when he was just 6 months old, he's now big brother to his 'lil pal. The spot we picked was a treasure trove of bugs, sticks and rocks. I love to capture kids in their element, exploring and just being kids. The night was just perfect on a warm late August evening.

A quick update on what's going on this month. https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2018/3/a-quick-update-on-whats-going-on-this-month I have to start with, did you see our new signs? If you are local please drive by and give a honk for approval!!

2) We have just two weeks left of our business sessions for $99, that includes two backgrounds and one final digital file, more files available upon request. It's a great deal to update your online image and use it to produce printed promotional materials. (have you seen all our images on Billboards, I think we have 5 right now!!!)

3) Our summer and even fall is booking up nicely. We're offering a super great special to those who get on the schedule early. It helps us plan for the year so much better. So we're giving away the $200 social media pass to everyone who gets on the schedule by the end of March. Your session can be photographed between March and December. We're just asking you pick a tentative date. click here for more info Graduates, Families, Newborns!!

Megan and Joe.. August at Belsolda Farm https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2018/2/megan-and-joe-august-at-belsolda-farm If it's okay to call two adults adorable then, that's what I'll say about Megan and Joe. Even their love story is adorable, they met through a mutual friend who knew they would like each other. She was right. They were smitten with each other, and still are. Both of them with striking blue eyes and genuine smiles, you can see the way they look at each other, that this is true love. 

Side note the funniest thing happened during the ceremony. a family friend was video taping and had leaned against an apple tree in the orchard. Just as the bride and her parents were walking up the isle the tree branch breaks and he goes flying (he was fine) we all laughed and Megan finally made it to her Joe.

You really never know what might happen during a ceremony, we had a drone fly into a tree this summer as well. The tree and the drone broke to pieces.

(I'm still laughing)

Sorry, not Sorry. What you won't see from us. https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2018/2/sorry-not-sorry-what-you-wont-see-from-us  

We are a company of longevity. We've been here for 15 years, and many of our clients from then are still our clients now. 

We do not Instagram process our images. One thing you will not see from us is a filter appearance across the whole gallery. There's a few trends that have been going on for a while and we're just not buying it. The lack of yellows in the trees making everything sort of emerald, the foggy softening of blacks giving images a flat mat look, and then the super over exposed bright, bright photos. Now, the newest one, the dark, underexposed, muddy portraits that make skin tones absolutely atrocious. 

Yuk people.

Make it stop. 

I feel for the bride who likes these images. They are appealing, but not for longevity. Have you seen prints form these images? Manipulating the true color distorts your perspective, memory, and the style won't last over time. Looking back at your images you'll be able to tell that they were taken during 2016-2018, when this editing style was very popular. Trends come and go.

You will be able know what you can tell from our portraits. You can feel the reality. You can see real skin tones that were true to the day, not dark and harsh red tones. You can see the true colors of trees and light. You can't tell by looking at our images what year it was.

They are TIMELESS.

Sorry, not sorry.

We won't follow the trend. We will stick with TRUE beauty.

I swoon, Newborn baby love https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2018/2/i-swoon-baby-love Nothing is more adorable then a newborn baby in my eyes. I love every minute of photographing them. It does not matter if they are cranky or sleep like logs, it's fun, challenging and automatically the best day ever. Miss Sweet Pea Bree is the 2nd baby for this awesome couple. I have watched her older sister grow up right before my eyes. And I say it all the time but when I've been with clients all along and their kids have milestones I feel it as if it were my own. I'm a huge empath. I feel love, pain, excitement, worry, and all the feels along with everyone I meet. So yes, I cried when the parents shared the news they were pregnant, and I smiled from ear to ear for big sister when she proudly said, "that's my baby", when she arrived to the studio. Crap, I can't even type this without feeling the love. Okay, enough from me, below are what you want to see.  hongisto_11172017_032hongisto_11172017_032 hongisto_11172017_031hongisto_11172017_031 hongisto_11172017_017hongisto_11172017_017 hongisto_11172017_021hongisto_11172017_021 hongisto_11172017_023hongisto_11172017_023 hongisto_11172017_013hongisto_11172017_013 hongisto_11172017_007hongisto_11172017_007

Upper Peninsula Rustic Elegance at it's Best https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2018/2/rustic-elegance-at-its-best I think we can all agree that the barn weddings are pretty amazing. I love the mix of rustic and modern. This was our first wedding at Red Barn Weddings, and we hope to go back soon. We swoon over the magical light the barn offers. Udy and Eric pulled off the most beautiful wedding with this popular trend. They did however have amazing help from our good friends at Knots and Kisses Events and Final Touches  . Final Touches took a poll barn in Chatham, MI and made it look like a big city event.  Our couple, coming from Colorado, has some deep Upper Peninsula roots, so there needed to be space for the whole town. And how do you feed a crowd like that, with an exceptional caterer. Sweet Basil is one of our favorite on site catering companies. Dinner was exceptional! Of course no U.P wedding would be complete without some local brew, from Blackrocks

Wedding season is HERE! https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2017/7/wedding-season-is-here Weddings are in full swing this summer!  

Our first wedding of the year traveled out to Pomona, California for Bridget and & Nick's wedding. 
The ceremony took place at the Kellogg West Center, and then we traveled down the road to a small vineyard scattered with tiny yellow flowers. We loved everything from this wedding from the succulent bouquets, to the beaded neckline on Bridget's gown. Take a peek at some California love!

Hunter is 4 years old! https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2017/6/hunter-is-4-years-old Hunter warmed right up to the camera! To be fair, he is a bit of an old pro, since he has had several photo sessions with us. What a great personality on this four year old fella.  Professional kids' portrait sessions are a great way to make sure that you capture your growing star. We have great packages available to suit everyone.

Where are all the Blogs? https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2017/2/where-are-all-the-blogs   NRR0200NRR0200



Each January I'm like, I'm going to blog every week, and by march I'm like... what Blog??? 

As a small business there are just so many things to keep track of. And finishing galleries and keeping clients happy just takes priority over blogging. To fix that we have hired a few more gals to help out throughout the year. So here's to a few more blogs.

I have to say something though. A recent encounter with someone in the industry has me baffled. She said... "Do you even DO many weddings?" WHAT?? Yes, we do, we do. We love weddings. This business started out as a wedding photography company and grew to include the newborns and families as my wedding clients and friends had babies and their families grew. We grew to fulfill the community need for professional photography service. SO YES WE DO WEDDINGS, we travel all over the country doing weddings. We provide a 3 week turn around time for your wedding images. We offer easy access to print ordering, album design, and digital files. See Weddings Here

Fall Mini Sessions!! https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2015/9/fall-mini-sessions Ashley, Stephanie and I are excited to announce our fall Mini sessions. This year we are celebrating the PRINT with amazing print prices and collections. I always say the gift of photography is a beautiful thing and it truly is. Only a few gifts we give in life actually increase with value as time goes on. Celebrate prints this year and celebrate who you are, where you live, and who you love. The collections will offer you chance to have prints for walls, prints to give as gifts, cards to send out and those digital files we love to hoard... (wink)

October 9th,10th, 11th from 4:00pm to 6:00pm we have 15 sessions available. Each session is $200, this year we have amazing print collections with savings on prints and holiday cards like you have never seen. We will be hosting them at a home in Marquette. A map will be provided, it's over by 480/553, and pretty easy to find. A big thank you to my parents this year for lending us their beautiful property. 

Our theme is woodsy glam with mat tones of gold and muted fall colors.

Please email me at [email protected] or use the contact form to send an email. I look forward to seeing you soon!

I'd climb the tallest mountain with you https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2015/8/id-climb-the-tallest-mountain-with-you Sugarloaf Mountain happens to be one of my favorite hikes. So when Mikala told me that's where Joey proposed I knew it had to be our engagement session location. So Mikala packed a basket of their favorite things and this is the magic that unfolded.  Enjoy!

hello...yes, we're here https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2015/8/hello-yes-were-here You've probably visited this page and thought, what is going on over there. We'll we came back from vacation ready to take on the summer. And boy oh boy summer did not disappoint. We kicked of the spring with a sale/fundraiser for St.Vinnies in Negaunee. You know, we raised $550 to donate from Daniele Carol Photography alone and over $1200 from the Spring Fling Event. (high five)!! With that came 11 sessions to shoot, from a princess turing 6 months to a family of 20! And then on top of that IT'S FULL ON WEDDING SEASON, we've already had 9 weddings..holy wah! We've had a great 8 weeks and I'd love to play catch up and share everyones session individually. Here's the first from this spring. Mr. Henry turned two. Isn't he just adorable. Hair so blond it's almost white and a smile so big for his mama. Oh does he love his mama.. and you can really see it in his bright blue eyes. His grandparents are the owners of the Northwoods Resort in AuTrain, MI. so we used their backyard for our session.

A little time away, to just BE! https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2015/4/a-little-time-away-to-just-be I am in desperate need of some time off. To unplug and just be. Not for too long just a little bit. I am taking a little trip and will be back recovered, rested and ready to take on the rest of 2015. I love all my clients so much, you mean a great deal to my family and I. And I love my little family more then words can even explain. But some times mama just has to BE. After the last holiday season and a few even crazier busy weeks in January I was talking with a friend and we both decided we needed a vacation a little get away to DO NOTHING.. to do ab-so-lutely nothing. A guilt free time to JUST BE. So we looked and looked and looked and found a great deal and booked our flights. The time is fast approaching and Im so excited. But I wanted to let y'all know two things.

1) I will answer emails with an I'm on vacation unless this is an emergency I'll be back with you on the 20th response.

2) When I come back we will be announcing a newly modified price-list for all of our photography services. Old lists will still be honored or you can trade in for the new one. The choice is yours. 


A few of my favorites from the year so far.  KJ_022KJ_022 DSC_6029DSC_6029 AK_030AK_030 zambon_0052zambon_0052

The Beauty Behind Birth Photography https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2015/4/the-beauty-behind-birth-photography Birth photography is a hot topic for sure. There is so much discussion about it being gross vs beautiful. I find it to be absolutely beautiful. I even had a good friend of mine photograph my son's birth and they are photos I cannot look at with out becoming emotional. Just like a wedding day comes and goes and it's hard to remember what just happened; same is true for a birth. It hurst so bad, it takes so long and then bam the little one is in your arms and you don't care what just happened because the love you have for that child is worth all the pain in the world to hold them tight and realize "hey, I MADE YOU". (right moms?) I'll admit I have only photographed 3 births so far in my career, its hard for me at this time to be "on call" with my tots and working husband. But It's something I would always take into consideration depending on the time of year the baby is due. Here is Michelle, and Beau. I prepared as usual to be there about 5CM, but when I arrived everything seemed to stop. It was a long birth but in the end Michelle said "I would definitly to do it again, maybe a little differently next time, but again for sure."

Over the TOP Adorable. https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2015/4/over-the-top-adorable Miss Skylar was such a doll. Literally like my own little ball of clay to move and pose. Mom and dad sat back and just watched in awe as I moved their little peanut with ease. Mom had even giving me the "good luck with this one" pep talk before we started. Adding how she's grown so much already in the past week she seems like a 1 month old. But, I worked my magic and the little peanut slept like a champ. Hugs to you Skylar, you are loved!

Tonya and Shawn and their Snowmobile wedding day https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2015/4/tonya-and-shawn-and-their-snowmobile-wedding-day When Tonya's grandma first called and asked if I had studio and if I was available for wedding photos on March 24th I said, "yes". When she explained the couple would be getting married at the court house in snowmobile gear, I said "huh"?  I asked them to please meet me at the studio so we can talk this out. My creative wheels were turing; I had to see what this couple had in mind. They really wanted to have their quick ceremony and then some photos of them in their jerseys (at the time I wasn't even sure what that was). And being in the Upper Peninsula they wanted to make sure we had a studio just incase we got a blizzard of snow that day. "Yes, yes" I said "this is where we'd be (showing them the room)…now if we don't have snow what do you want to do??" Thinking of all the possibilities of a snowmobile bride and groom I was so excited to hear they had two really nice sleds and were actually wanting to take them out for a ride together and be photographed. "YES"  I couldn't wait.  You know me I want to tell the whole story, so I met the bride and groom at the court house for photos of the quaint ceremony, then we did a few photos of them back at the studio, and grandma surprised them with a cake. Then we went out for a joy ride!

I met her when she was just a few days old and I've had the pleasure of watching her grow. She's rocked out every session from Newborn to 1 year. Her mama is expecting baby #2 and she treated herself to a little maternity session in the studio. We had Stephanie Schmidt on hair and Make-up duty (nice work Steph)! Amanda, you are so beautiful and make being pregnant look so good! Being a sassy toddler never looked so cute either. See you when baby arrives team Z!

Welcome. Let's tour the Studio. https://www.danielecarol.com/blog/2015/3/welcome-and-a-tour-of-the-studio Hello And Welcome!

Here at the Daniele Carol Studio we are well known for our wedding work and newborn portraits. I ,Daniele, could not be more proud of the work we have done in the past 12 years. We now are located in the heart of downtown Negaunee. The studio is a large open creative space with two rooms. One room known as "the studio" is for capturing photos and houses many props. The other room is an office and meeting room, that acts as a relief room for the parents while their newborn is being photographed in the warm studio.  We also love to photograph those wee ones as they grow with our popular 'Watch Me Grow' packages inside or outside depending on the time of year. For the families and toddlers we prefer to let them roam free, I would much rather run and play outside and so would your kids! After each session and event we host the family for a fun viewing party. The final images are shown on the big screen and we give a tutorial on the website and ordering process.  Photos are typically ready within 3 weeks of your session. The viewing parties are scheduled at your convenience and we are flexible on time and dates. Special offers are included for returning clients, it means the world to us to be your photographer and we like to reward you for coming back time and time again. 

In 2015 we are branching out and we will be including Fine Art Woman's Portraits to our list of services. I have always loved and admired this work and over the past two years I have been studying and mentoring with top portrait artists across the world to bring this service to the UP. Stay tuned for our exciting announcement and giveaway. 

Please enjoy this tour of the studio and let us know how we can serve you and your family.
