{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.

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!

…and sometimes, we just plain don’t want to have our hpics taken with our new baby sister.

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!

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.

{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.

{Lexi} UofM versus MSU Sister Mini Maternity Session: Old Town Lansing Photographer

July 19th, 2012

On a personal note, I am sharing an incredible moment with my little sister. We’re both expecting boys this Fall/Winter (6 weeks apart)! There is nothing like growing up with cousins the same age. I remember loving the trips we’d take to be around our distant cousins, but with us, we’ll at least be in […]

On a personal note, I am sharing an incredible moment with my little sister. We’re both expecting boys this Fall/Winter (6 weeks apart)!

There is nothing like growing up with cousins the same age. I remember loving the trips we’d take to be around our distant cousins, but with us, we’ll at least be in state :).

Last weekend, we got together and took some sister maternity pictures in Old Town Lansing. Donny was the main photographer this time as I was one of the subjects. This was mainly a mini-maternity session for my sister who was a little concerned that I’d be “too pregnant” to take her pictures later. So she, her boyfriend, Donny, and I headed out in the unbearable heat for the mini session. She was at 22.5 weeks and I was almost 28 weeks. Luckily, we stayed in the shade for most of it!

If you know anything about Michigan, you know about the MSU-UofM rivalry. We playfully made that the theme for the photoshoot since Donny is a HUGE Michigan State Fan – it’s his alma mater and Kaz, my sister’s boyfriend, is a huge University of Michigan fan.

See more of the photoshoot below and on our flickr site.

We definitely had a good time.
