Julie & Laina: Christmas Photos (Grand Rapids Children's Photographer)

November 9, 2018

I was struggling to decide what I wanted to do for my kids' holiday photos. I wanted to use them for our Christmas card, but when I was trying to think of what I wanted to use in my studio for it, I couldn't come up with anything that wouldn't require me to bring a ton of stuff down there and then drag it all the way up the stairs... anyway, I was feeling lazy and needed a backup plan.

I realized the look I wanted to achieve was almost all available in my house! I got a few comfy pillows and blankets, rearranged my bedroom, and dressed the girls in their new holiday outfits.  Oh and I also bribed them with marshmallows but they were good sports anyway. Lots of cuteness to get you ready for more of that cool weather on the way.

Let it snow!

Kenny & Megan: Engaged! (West Michigan Wedding Photographer)

October 30, 2018

Another engagement session this fall before all the color was gone... This time at the beautiful Blandford Nature Center with Kenny and Megan. And on top of doing their engagement session, they brought their pets for a few full family photos. I've never photographed a house rabbit before but Monroe was a dream. And even though Nova was a bit excited, she was a sweetie too!

I'm already looking forward to Megan and Kenny's wedding in June.

^I think it's safe to say we hit the peak of color in West Michigan!

^Worth the walk to this beauty!


^The whole family ;)

^Monroe was a great subject!

^Some climbing required.


^Or maybe this is my favorite...

^Or this! Can't decide.
