The Miller Family: An Evening in Grand Rapids (Grand Rapids Family Photographer)

May 18, 2015

This little crew and I have hung out before. We did a session in downtown Rockford a couple years back. The weather improved for our second session (brrrr it was cold last time!) and the city got a little bigger as we relocated to downtown GR this time around. I love this city, as it has so many amazing backdrops. This particular spot has so many great areas to photograph in, which made it perfect for a quick little family session. Susan won a little contest I ran back in the early part of the year, and this is the result!

Oh and thanks for bringing Zeke again. He's so fun!
He's the dog!

^The kids!

^The map seemed fitting since we were shooting in the city anyway!

^Real smiles! Kind of ;)

^Susan and Michael are awesome.

^Tell me you don't love this pair of shots!

^Dad and his girls.

^Puppy friend.

^I forget what they called this because I'm the least cool ever but that's fine ;)

^Family jumps are the funnest!

^These last two are my favorites. We're done!!!

Nick & Kelsey: Getting Married (Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer)

May 9, 2015

Nick and Kelsey and I were planning just a quick little session. I was having a heck of a time picking a place to do it, since they weren't particular about it. I kept admiring these trees on the way to and from work and it dawned on me... why not do their quick session right by those trees? I hadn't gotten to photograph blossoms at all this year, so it was a perfect plan!

The newlyweds-to-be met me by the trees (which are just outside an office building) after work and we took a few fun shots. Looking on were two geese, who probably weren't happy we were there. But we didn't stay long so they got over it. I'm even more excited to photography Nick and Kelsey's wedding in August now. There won't be any blooming trees but I think we'll make due with their awesome location anyway!

^Blooming trees are the BEST!

^DEFINITELY my favorite :)

^The picked perfect colors to contrast the trees. Winning!

^Gotta play with that focus a bit ;)

^A nice block wall is hard to pass up.

^See you two in August!

Elliott: 6 Months Old (Grand Rapids Children's Photographer)

April 29, 2015

This little fellow first met me after being around for less than two weeks. What a small but sweet little guy. I did his parents' maternity session too, so we've practically known each other forever, I would say ;) But seriously, every time I get to spend time with Elliott, John and Kris, it's a pleasure! They are a fun pair and they love everything that is little Elliott, not that I can blame them. He's always happy and sweet (although he just slept for his newborn session... good boy!). I hope to see them all again soon, but for now... here he is again!

^Six months EXACTLY when he came to visit!


^Awwww can't take the cuteness.

^Elliott keeps it classy.

^A couple of silly boys.

^Fancy ;)

^Bottle face.

^Reading is very important.

^John and Kris were on either side within grabbing distance but we were so impressed with this sitting shot!

^A quick recreation of a shot from our last session :)
