Silver Lake Sand Dunes | Michigan | Chicago Family Photographer | Heather Hackney Photography

Wide open spaces, blue skies and running free.

Mears, Michigan is a photographers dream.  I am no doubt a city girl, but when I stumbled across Silver Lake on my Instagram feed I was mesmerized.  Miles and miles of sand, skies with unobstructed sunsets and lots of open space for my child to run.  It was a place I needed to see in person.  A place I knew my child would love.  So we packed our bags and hit the road.  Here are a few of our favorites from a trip we will never forget.
