{Kyler} Downtown Grand Rapids Toddler Photographer {teaser}

April 24th, 2014

This handsome little boy is mine: Kyler. He just passed the 18-month mark and the weather was too perfect not to take him around downtown Grand Rapids to watch him observing the world. I am still in shock that he’s already flirting with the toddler mark :(, but am completely thankful for his health and […]

Downtown Grand Rapids Toddler Photography

He just passed the 18-month mark and the weather was too perfect not to take him around downtown Grand Rapids to watch him observing the world. I am still in shock that he’s already flirting with the toddler mark :(, but am completely thankful for his health and curiosity. Come back soon! I’ll post some more highlights from this completely personal session.

And no, I don’t put any product in his hair! It just stands up like that!

{Evalyn} Fun Family Bloopers in Grand Rapids, Michigan

February 10th, 2013

There are many beautiful… perfect images of families getting pinned and saved as inspiration for people everywhere. But sometimes, the best and most favorite photos I take are the ones that capture the essence of family: the silly moments AND the chaotic ones. I had such pleasure capturing some of these for newborn baby girl, […]

There are many beautiful… perfect images of families getting pinned and saved as inspiration for people everywhere. But sometimes, the best and most favorite photos I take are the ones that capture the essence of family: the silly moments AND the chaotic ones. I had such pleasure capturing some of these for newborn baby girl, Evalyn, and her adorable family in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Sure, we had a lot of great hpicsque opportunities, but I love what I’ll endearingly call "bloopers". Here, the dog wanted in on the photos, but couldn’t focus with treats in his face!

{Evalyn} Sweet Baby Girl in Grand Rapids, Michigan

February 1st, 2013

I met Evalyn and her family in their beautifully modern downtown Grand Rapids home in early January. Mom, Sarah, is an interior designer and it shows! I lucked out with gorgeous natural lighting that streamed throughout the house during the entire shoot. The nursery design is tastefully sleek and clean which was refreshing to all […]

I met Evalyn and her family in their beautifully modern downtown Grand Rapids home in early January. Mom, Sarah, is an interior designer and it shows! I lucked out with gorgeous natural lighting that streamed throughout the house during the entire shoot. The nursery design is tastefully sleek and clean which was refreshing to all that is uber-pink and girly. (No hating… I happen to own all my electronics in pink or pink-shrouded form.) It was so un-kiddish that I would have loved to call that my bedroom.

{Truong} The Sweetest Family Christmas Card Photo Shoot in Lansing, Michigan

Lisa and I first met after working on a portrait session together. I am so thankful that she keeps coming back to work with me! This time, she wanted family portraits for their 2012 Christmas card, so I met her (and her amazingly, adorable, and full-of-love) family in Lansing around the Capitol. They were so […]

Lisa and I first met after working on a portrait session together. I am so thankful that she keeps coming back to work with me! This time, she wanted family portraits for their 2012 Christmas card, so I met her (and her amazingly, adorable, and full-of-love) family in Lansing around the Capitol.

They were so much fun to work with – the kids, Ethan and Emmy, got so into it that they gladly ‘set up’ some of the shots for me!

The CRAZY part is that they all love each other. 🙂 For this shot, I shouted, "Everyone, quick! Look at someone else!" And they ALL looked at Emmy. There is no mistake on who the star of the show is!

It’s not hard to have gorgeous photos like that when you have a model like my sister, Lexi!

She’s expecting a baby boy this November! Congratulations, Lexi! We already did a mini maternity session as sisters, but this was her real, own personal shoot. For this session, we wandered around downtown Grand Rapids for an offbeat maternity photoshoot. Think ‘high fashion’, urban, and model! And she’s so tiny, sometimes it blurred the line of ‘maternity shoot’ and just ‘portrait shoot’… without me getting in her way 🙂

There’s nothing like a good construction site, a beautiful face, and an awesome summer day to bring out a great session. I’ve always loved the contrast of rubble and the refined. I’ll let these photos speak for themselves.
