Ryan & Heather: Engaged (Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer)

July 14, 2015

Heather is from my hometown, and now she lives in Grand Rapids, along with Ryan. It's nice to know they have good taste in living locations! On top of that, they are getting married, and of course I like to be a part of that! Their wedding is in September, and we had time to sneak in a quick, last minute engagement shoot for them! It's been a rough year for Heather and Ryan, but it's getting better, and it's going to end with them married and HAPPY together! I can't wait to be a part of their big day!

^Love this posing! Good work, guys!

^Ryan fishes down here. A great little spot!

^A favorite of mine.

^Awwww ;)

^Adding some interesting color to the session.

^I think they like each other.

Sneak Peek: Jeff & Mary

July 25, 2015

What a hot July this is turning into. Wedding weekends in the heat can be rough but this wedding party braved it like a bunch of champs. Mary and Jeff had a beautiful day (despite the heat) and lots of fun, so here's our first peek of what is yet to come!

Japanese Garden at Fredrick Meijer

July 17, 2015

Last week, two of my mommy friends and I decided we needed to go visit the brand new Richard & Helen DeVos Japanese Garden at Fredrick Meijer Gardens. We met up at FMG, got our girls in their strollers and proceeded to wander around the HUGE and gorgeous exhibit. Though it was humid and hot, we had a wonderful time seeing the beautifully landscaped gardens and seeing all the sights there. It was absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend everyone go see it in person, but since I'm obviously going to post something photographic, here's a preview. But again, it is so worth it to see it in person if you can. I won't post the babies on this one, but lots of other pretty things. Enjoy!

^A froggy friend before we got to the Japanese Gardens.

^Bonsai garden

^Zen Garden (I couldn't get a shot I thought did this justice... go see for yourself!)


^So many hydrangeas... they were beautiful.

^My best waterfall shot!

^Such a cool place, go see it for yourself.
^Here's just one of my favorite girls, just cuz I can't resist!

Kyle & Lauren: Baby on Board (West Michigan Maternity Photographer)

July 10, 2015

I'm pretty sure Lauren just glows. All the time. As usual, she showed up for her session looking beautiful. The last time I saw this pretty lady was her wedding day. She and Kyle had an amazing time with friends and family. Some crazy weather too, but all in all a very great day! This time around, she was in town for her best friend's wedding, but we made sure to sneak in some maternity photos for her, Kyle, and little William the day before. Again, Lauren looks gorgeous, and Kyle is definitely in love! I can't wait to hear that their little boy has made it into the world safely, but for now, enjoy their maternity session!

^Excited to meet their little William David.

^Throwback... Kyle loves giving Lauren daisies.


^Oh, the beautiful color!

^Loving this silhouette.  

^This one is definitely my favorite!

^Congrats to two amazing people!
