Sneak Peek: Greenhouse Styled Spring Wedding Shoot (Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer)

March 29, 2015

It's so much fun collaborating with other awesome wedding people. I had been thinking of this shoot for a little while but I didn't think that I would be able to get anything off the ground with it. If it hadn't been for the amazing suggestion and work of Tracy Park at Park Place Design, I wouldn't have been able to pull this off. Big kudos also so the Downtown Market in Grand Rapids for letting us use their space for our shoot and to Allie for being our lovely bride! Thanks also to Barb at It's Personal by Sweet Cakes for the awesome cake as well. I'll chat more about this when ALL the images are ready to view, but for now, I couldn't resist a preview... just in time for my wedding season to start! Yay!

And now a little more close up, because I couldn't decide which way to display these that I liked better!

Julianna - My Second Month (Grand Rapids Children's Photographer)

February 28, 2015

It's time for a little more Julie cuteness today. Our second month was a good one, since Julie was growing well and filling out more and more every day. She also started smiling and showing off her bright eyes even more. Though she can be a little stinker sometimes, we are so blessed to have a great little lady who started sleeping very well  (only one wake-up per night, usually) for us in her second month!

Five Weeks
^A little sneeze action here!

^She likes to stick her tongue out a lot.

Six Weeks
^What a happy girl.

^...and we're mad!

Seven Weeks
^"Sometimes Mom puts huge, silly bows on my head to cover up my baby mullet" :)

^Silly girl.

Eight Weeks

^Her silly faces are awesome sometimes!

^Cute socks from Grandma Patti.

^Happy girl!

^I love this shot of her, I can totally see her standing like this someday!

Two Months
^Getting so much chubbier and better at sitting (though we still needed spotters!)

Julianna - My First Month (Grand Rapids Children's Photographer)

January 30, 2015

Since it's been a bit slow on the blog lately (it won't be long till we have LOTS to share though!), I wanted to show a few photos I did of my little baby girl. She's getting very close to three months old already, and I've been very diligent in taking lots and lots of photos of her. Every Tuesday, on her "weekly" anniversary of being born, I've taken photos of her to follow how much she's grown! And every month, I'll be taking a similar photo to really show how big she's gotten. I also will do full, regular sessions for her on her 3-, 6-, 9-, and 12-month birthdays, but we've yet to get there quite yet.

 This week, I've got her first two months ready to go to show you! First... month one of my baby. Enjoy some Julie cuteness below :)

Two Weeks
^Since we had her newborn photos done, and I was exhausted, we skipped week one and started at week two.

^The bottom photo is probably still my very favorite photo of her so far :)

^Bright eyes, already, at two weeks!

Three Weeks
^Pete likes to check Julie out once and awhile. So much bigger than her!

^Obviously, she was very sleep for our photos on week 3!

^Like brother, like sister ;)

Four Weeks
^Showing some personality on week four :)

^She tolerated the huge bow, at least ;)

One Month

^A little slouchy, she needed spotters for this photo :) Silly Julie!
