Ainsley Blake | Michigan Newborn Photographer

World, Say “hello” to the beautiful Ainsley.

Some will say Ainsley’s story is sad. I say it can be, but it is also amazing and beautiful all at the same time.

See Ainsley was conceived in love. She is surrounded by SO much love, that it cannot even be measured.

But there is also tragedy in this story as well. After Blake and Rachel found out they were pregnant, they also found out that Blake was sick. With the wickedess sickness of all sicknesses… Cancer.

An 18 year old with Cancer?! Yes. Unfair, and Unbelievable. And just down right well Crappy if you ask me. Yes i just said crap on my blog. But its true. I HATE cancer.

Ainsley’s Daddy Blake put up a serious strong fight. You never once heard him complain about why me? He never begged for a different life. He was strong.

But god does things we will never understand or know until its our time to meet him.

Blake left for heaven a week before Ainsley arrived.

Unfair? Yes. But he also was there to help her into this world we believe.

I strongly believe he was there to watch over her arrival and be sure everything went right. And it did.

Here she is this amazing beauty, Who will know a life some of us will never understand or begin to try to.

But we can all be there to cheer her on her way and lend a hand when we can.

Or even just say a prayer.

Her momma Rachel has many roads ahead of her.

But see Rachel is also lucky in a way.

She has an angel in heaven and here on earth.

Rachel’s Beautiful Bump | Michigan Maternity Photographer

First of all i want to welcome you to my VERY first official blog post on my new blog! I am SO excited to officially have a nice looking professional blog that matches my website. I have daydreamed about this day for years hahaha. I know i am sad huh? Don’t worry the old blog will be there and i plan to post a link to it here on the new one. That way past clients will still be able to access their past blogs. I have decided since i have taken my business to a whole new level, that my blog needed to join that level. And thanks to Prophoto’s amazing team i finally feel like i am there. There will be changes made to it as i learn new cool stuff but for now this will have to do. Thanks for stopping by and i hope you come by often. I have been trying to be a better blogger. But with my past embarrassing blog,  i had a hard time wanting to post there. So, now onto the fun stuff!!!


Rachel is such a stunning mama. She makes pregnancy look so easy!  Just loved having fun with her running around the studio coming up with whatever we could. The light was SO beautiful that day!! I found myself speechless many times while editing this session. Stay tuned for the updated post of sweet Ainsley, her beautiful child.  Like mother, like daughter GORGEOUS!!! Now go fall in love with these images!!!
