Mack - 2 years (Grand Rapids Children's Photographer)

January 23, 2015

Mr. Mack is a little flirt. Though he was feeling a little bit shy with me, his mom, Cindy and I were able to get a lot of good smiles out of him... we just had to chase him around a bit! Mack has come to me for both his newborn, family and his one year photos, and I get to see him throughout the year when I get my hair done by his mom. It's always so much fun to see kids grow up right in front of you like that! Happy birthday, Mack (back at the end of December) and thank you for being patient while I finished up being pregnant and having my own little one ;)

^Look at that sneaky look!

^Having too much fun instead of sitting still ;)

^Taking the hat off was way more fun than wearing it.

^Little cutie!

It's that time of year again! I am officially announcing our 2015 Boudoir Marathon, this time taking place at my new studio, or potentially one of the Grand Rapids area hotels. It's a great gift for your husband, boyfriend, or just for yourself (I promise, I've done it myself!) and you don't have to feel like you look perfect to make this an awesome session (I promise that too!). I have salon suggestions for those who are interested, although you are welcome to fancy yourself up in any way you like as well.

We have five slots to fill  the session (and there are only a few slots left), so if you are interested, please contact me at right away! Deposit is required, thanks!

$250 for one hour session with hi-res disc
$300 for one hour session with printed book
$400 for one hour session with hi-res jpeg and book

Just in case the marathon date doesn't work for you, or you are interested in doing a session this year, I do single studio session as well. Here are the prices available (bring a friend for a dual session to get an extra $10 off each of your session fees)

Sitting fee - $100

Rosanna's session was amazing! Hers was another gift for her husband. This mother of two, as a lot of mom's are, was not sure how amazing she would look, but as you can see, she looked absolutely stunning. Though I usually pride myself in finding my ladies' "sassy face", Rosanna really rocked the smile shots. We know each other from back in our school days, and knowing her personality, that might be why I think so. You be the judge as you look at her awesome session!

Don't forget, we've got a few slots left for our boudoir marathon! Contact me via my website or if you are interested!

^Beautiful smile, Mama!

^This one is likely my very favorite!

^Love her smile shots, but that doesn't mean she didn't make the "sassy" look perfect.

^A pop of color!

This is actually "A"'s second boudoir session with me. Her first session was one of my marathons a few years back, and she was a great model! She decided that for this year, she wanted to do a BIG session and create a 2015 calendar of her images. We did just a few shots with each outfit in order to get them all in, but we definitely made it happen. Great work, A!

It's boudoir week in honor of our upcoming boudoir marathon (interested? contact me via my website or at so let's get started with a week of boudoir images! These were all from last year, but they are new to you!

First off we have the lovely "T". She really rocked her session, came prepared with some SUPER SEXY thigh high high heeled boots. Not everyone can pull off that style, but our long legged beauty definitely did for this session. T was excited for her session, which she was doing for her wedding gift to her hubby-to-be, and she did great.

^Love this bra T brought in. Perfectly stylish.

^Pearls are a must have boudoir accessory!

^Playing with the light. And look at those boots!

^Because her husband loves the Bears.

^She's definitely got what I call the "sassy" look.

^My favorite!
