My cutie little niece is turning one in just a few days! So of course, we had to celebrate with a first birthday cake smash and take some pictures. These milestone sessions are so much fun; especially at this age. Ellie is such a little doll with a huge personality. I’m so excited to celebrate […]

Well, it’s been a minute since my last blog post hasn’t it? Having a baby last summer meant shooting a lot less, but I realized I never shared this beautiful autumn glasshouse wedding I shot with Samantha Joy Photo last October. Not only was it at one of my new favorite West Michigan venues, Glasshouse […]

I’m so excited to share this fancy fall engagement session with you all! What makes it fancy? Sam & Nick! I tell all of my couples that the engagement session is the perfect opportunity to go all out. Want to wear a ballgown? Go for it! And Sam did. I mean, how many opportunities do […]

I love this time of year. Yes, fall is stunning. And who doesn’t love sunny, summer beach weather? But just look at this late summer engagement session and you’ll see what I mean! The leaves haven’t started to change yet, but the sun is setting a little earlier and the temperatures are getting a little […]

I am so excited to share this colorful Jackson wedding! Perfect weather, amazing vendors, fun murals for portraits, and a great couple are every photographer’s dream and this wedding had it all.

Gabi and David are married! Well, it sure has been awhile since we’ve had a wedding post around here! And I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to celebrate with for my first wedding back after having our son. These two¬†put together the most beautiful outdoor wedding at Vintage Garden Barn, and said “I […]

You know the old saying “the third time’s the charm?” Well, I don’t know where that comes from, but that is exactly what this session was. After two reschedules, one due to weather and the other due to illness, we ended up with the most perfect February day. It’s always such a treat when it’s […]

We’re back on the blog with the second session from this past weekend! Blog family, meet Jessica and Jeff! After four years together, these two are ready to tie the knot this summer. It takes a courageous couple to pull off a winter engagement session here in Michigan. The weather is always unpredictable, especially in […]
