{Leo} Child Photography on West Michigan Beach

October 7th, 2014

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)!

Their children threw them a 65th Sapphire Anniversary party and everyone down to the grandkids coordinated in the deep blue color to […]

Lansing Anniversary, Couple, and Family Photographer

Their children threw them a 65th Sapphire Anniversary party and everyone down to the grandkids coordinated in the deep blue color to honor them. We broke off into families within the whole family for some stylized and more classic portraits.

After 65 years of marriage, I want to look this adorable too.

{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.

{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.
