Sweet Baby Ella {Grand Rapids Newborn Photographer}

blog

I’m not going to lie, newborn photography can be hard.  I have so many ideas and plans for different props that I’m going to use with these tiny little people, but at the end of the day, they are in charge.

Safety is always a priority, keeping the baby as calm & happy as possible.  A warm studio & lots of time for feeding and cuddling.  It’s a job that I truly love.

They are only tiny for such a short time and it makes my heart happy to capture this time so that when they are older they can say, wow, that was me?  I was so small 🙂

Thanks for bringing your precious miracle to me, I loved every minute of it (soaked shirt and all! 🙂 )

Ethan – Forest Hills Central Class of 2016 {Grand Rapids Senior Photographer}

blog

I can’t believe that another senior season has almost come and gone.  Seniors are some of my favorite subjects to photograph…..and the class of 2016 didn’t disappoint this year.  So many incredible kids that I’ve had the pleasure to get to know a little bit.

Ethan, we had the perfect weather for your session.  I’m so glad that we waited an extra day and got the beautiful sunlight over the windy gray day before.  And, thanks Jeanine for stepping up and doing such a great job being my assistant for the night 🙂

Best wishes to you Ethan in your senior year at FHC~

Leah & The 1972 Ford {Grand Rapids Senior Photographer}

blog

Leah has been my photography assistant for the last 2 years.  She is beautiful inside & out and I love her to pieces.

She had wanted to do part of her senior portraits with this 1972 Ford that her Grandfather owned.  However, sadly, he sold it a couple of years ago.

Step in Super Hero Grandpa Bruce!  He contacted the person that he sold the truck to and he graciously allowed us to come out to his farm and use the truck for her senior session.  How cool is that?

Add to that the gorgeous weather we had that night…….I couldn’t have asked for more.  It was a dream for both of us!

Thanks Leah.  Love you to the moon & back!

Cousins – {Grand Rapids Children’s Photographer}

blog

I had my work cut out for me with this crew of little people.  And, I loved every minute of it!

Don’t wait until you feel like your family is “perfect” The perfect age, the perfect smile, now is the perfect time.  Capture those little personalities now, I promise you, you won’t regret it.

Is it a little stressful to get together a group with a 4 year old, throw in 3, 2, 1, & 5 months?  Ha, Ha, yes, it can be challenging, but oh my goodness the great images we got that will be cherished for years to come.

Thank you Kim for inviting me to capture these memories for you of your beautiful grandchildren.  You are truly blessed.

FAMILY – is the best thing you could ever wish for.

They are there for you during the ups & downs

and love you know matter what.

~Author, unknown

I’m so glad that this family took the time out of their busy schedules to get their family portraits made.  It’s not always easy to accomplish this with small children…..they have their own agendas and standing still for pictures isn’t usually high on their want to do list 🙂

We got a lot of fun images & they are truly going to cherish these for years to come.
