{Frayer} Grand Rapids Winter Maternity Photography

January 10th, 2014

I just adore how perfectly the snow fell during this maternity photo session on the Aquinas College campus. It wasn’t TOO cold – almost as if Mother Nature I was taking photos that day.

I just adore how perfectly the snow fell during this maternity photo session on the Aquinas College campus. It wasn’t TOO cold – almost as if Mother Nature I was taking photos that day. Rob & Jen came from Metro Detroit to Grand Rapids to have their winter maternity captured. That picture above was one of my favorites from this session. Isn’t she glowing?

{Mockridge} Novi Maternity Photographer

This is as much fun as it looks. It was a beautiful day in east Michigan when Jill, Chaz, and I ventured out to a Novi park to capture her pregnancy glow after some beautiful shots in their home.

{Donny & Thao} Self Portrait Maternity

August 14th, 2012

It’s hard to always get the pictures you personally want, even if you are photographers. Sometimes that tripod and remote just doesn’t get what you want without 50 trips of "pose, click the remote, freeze, check the picture, ‘crap – got to take that again’, repeat" The best choice was to hire another local artist […]

It’s hard to always get the pictures you personally want, even if you are photographers. Sometimes that tripod and remote just doesn’t get what you want without 50 trips of "pose, click the remote, freeze, check the picture, ‘crap – got to take that again’, repeat"

The best choice was to hire another local artist to take our photos – and we did.

But, we still had to at least TRY getting our own photos :).

We’re pretty goofy and it would not be right to just get serious expressions for memory’s sake. We know better than that! So the tripod was set up and here’s what we got. On the ones where only one of us were in the photo, we obviously took turns taking the photos.

We took others – check back to see. Clients always come first so my personal projects will have to wait!

I recently posted this teaser of Megan and Bill after a shoot about a week and a half ago and I just finished up the DVD.

Enjoying a drink together in the old school style diner (actually, it's Pita Pit in downtown Grand Rapids)

I have never been to the Pita House downtown, but I will definitely make it a habit more often… if I ever make it downtown. (We had dinner there after the shoot and it was delicious!) We stumbled inside to warm Megan up during the first half of the shoot. The poor thing had wet gloves and it was freezing outside. Lo and behold, it was the perfect setting for the semi-themed vintage session.

Here are some of my favorites… don’t forget about {The Famous Kiss} from the teaser, definitely a fave.

I told you that red dress was perfect. …and don’t forget to support our troops!

support our troops!

Did you create your Christmas cards? Did you use your favorite pictures of the year? A holiday photo? Or did you try to tell a story??

Donny and I themed our cards around adventure since this year was all about traveling and doing things we haven’t done yet. Looking forward to another adventurous year! Merry Christmas everyone!
