{Leo} Child Photography on West Michigan Beach

I’ve been lucky to photography Leo since before he was born through his early childhood years. I was thrilled to take his three-year photos. This time, we ventured to the beautiful West Michigan shoreline. Typically, you hear ‘beach’ and think warm sunshine, but it was COLD. We had to plan to avoid the rain and […]

West Michigan Beach child photographer

I’ve been lucky to photography Leo since before he was born through his early childhood years. I was thrilled to take his three-year photos. This time, we ventured to the beautiful West Michigan shoreline. Typically, you hear ‘beach’ and think warm sunshine, but it was COLD. We had to plan to avoid the rain and then dodge the ice-cold breeze in the middle of avoiding sunshine in the eyes. It took some coaxing, but we did get some great shots.

I loved that they brought a kite to add some pretty color (and to take advantage of that breeze).

I hope you enjoyed these photos as much as I liked taking them. Looking for a great beach in West Michigan to get photos taken? Let me know! I know of a great place (and a fun photographer)!

{Leo} Two Year : Caledonia Photographer

I recently went out to Caledonia to take document this little man turning two years old! We had a good time wandering around downtown Caledonia, which is small, but colorful. Then, he showed me all of his cars and took me around his adorable owl-themed room. If you squint and look at the photos just […]

Caledonia Child Photographer

I recently went out to Caledonia to take document this little man turning two years old! We had a good time wandering around downtown Caledonia, which is small, but colorful. Then, he showed me all of his cars and took me around his adorable owl-themed room. If you squint and look at the photos just right, his mama is expecting number 2 in that itty bitty bump.

{Megan & Bill} Picnic Maternity in the Park: Lowell Photograher

August 20th, 2011

You probably remember these two from a much colder shoot last December… a very romantic ‘soldier coming home‘ shoot in downtown Grand Rapids. Well, shortly after their session and his homecoming, they found out they were expecting their first child! The awesome thing was that they chose me to come up with a maternity session […]

You probably remember these two from a much colder shoot last December… a very romantic ‘soldier coming home‘ shoot in downtown Grand Rapids. Well, shortly after their session and his homecoming, they found out they were expecting their first child!

The awesome thing was that they chose me to come up with a maternity session for them and I had one I had been DYING to do: a picnic in the sun. Sooo, I pitched the idea, they went for it, we packed up our belongings and hit up Fallasburg Park in Lowell, Michigan for the photoshoot. We also incorporated their shared love of reading which went perfectly with the picnic setting. As you can see, it was a beautiful day.

{Megan & Bill} Welcome Home, Soldier Session: Grand Rapids Photographer

December 28th, 2010

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. 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 […]

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!

{Megan & Bill} The Famous Kiss

Bill had been away from his beautiful wife, Megan, for the past year in Afghanistan. He returned home just in time for the holidays (awesome gift, btw) and we did a welcome home photoshoot in downtown Grand Rapids – right in front of the beautiful tree and Rosa Parks Circle ice skating rink.

Bill had been away from his beautiful wife, Megan, for the past year in Afghanistan. He returned home just in time for the holidays (awesome gift, btw) and we did a welcome home photoshoot in downtown Grand Rapids – right in front of the beautiful tree and Rosa Parks Circle ice skating rink.

The happy couple reenacted “The Famous Kiss”, a picture taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt in New York’s Time Square on August 14, 1945, after the victorious end of WWII… right here in our own little city. Megan dressed up with vintage inspiration (wait ’til you see the killer red dress) and Bill was head to toe in his dress uniform (rather debonair!).

Reenactment of The Famous Kiss

After a year apart, you couldn’t keep your hands off each other either.

Nothing like a kiss from your husband after he comes home from a war

COLD, but such a fun shoot. Can’t wait to go through the rest of these pictures… stay tuned.
Welcome home, Bill, and thank you both for your service!
