Metro Detroit Photographers Hey Hey… yep I’m still around.  I was flat on my back all weekend, yuk.  I first pulled a muscle in my back by scratching my head!  I kid you not.  Go figure.  I then threw it out doing my favorite thing; rearranging my studio. I had to baby it because I […]

Detroit Michigan Portrait Photographer Mary DuPrie Just Kidding! I shot Andrea today and I had her mom Audrey working  hard as my assistant.  They’re both hard working, fun and appreciative so it’s great to have both of them in the studio.  They bake, bring lunch and even call to see if I’m hungry before a […]

Detroit Michigan People Photography by Mary DuPrie I was at Michigan’s most exclusive mall today, Somerset,  and while on the third floor escalator I peered down and noticed an elderly lady shuffling with her cane on the main floor.   The thing that struck me was she was alone.
