I’m bursting with excitement to spill the lavender-scented beans about this Mommy + Me photo shoot that’s straight out of a dream. Picture this: a sprawling lavender farm, hues of purple painting the horizon, and the sweet giggles of a precious mother-daughter duo dancing in the summer breeze. Yep, that’s the magic I had the […]

Everyone knows how much I love being a wedding photographer; however, what I love even more is really getting to know my clients and to continue capturing them long after their wedding day! If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you will definitely recognize these two. I have had the honor of photographing Gabi […]

Ok, last night’s Lowell senior session was a photographer’s dream! Great clients. Absolutely perfect summer evening. Beautiful golden hour. I’m just thrilled to share all of my favorites of Miss Mael, a senior from Rockford High School. For our backdrop we chose the footbridge over the Grand River, a location I haven’t used before for […]

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 […]

I can’t believe this little guy is already almost five months old! It feels like we were just down in North Carolina meeting him for the first time. I recently took a week off for another visit and, of course, had to take some photos while I was there. Four months is such a fun […]

This Rockford and Grand Haven […]

If you’ve been a visitor to my blog for a while, you know that this family session at Leslie Tassel Park isn’t my normal content. My photography focus is really on couples and weddings, and I’ve generally made it a rule that I only do family sessions for past clients or someone in my own […]

We have something a little different on the blog today! I don’t do a lot of newborn photography, but this newborn lifestyle session is something I have been looking forward to for months. If you’re a frequent visitor to my blog, you may remember this maternity session back in March. Well, that sweet little baby […]

I’m going to be an auntie (again!). I adore watching all of my couples grow their little families. However, it’s an extra special experience when it’s your own sister. It feels like just a few weeks ago that I watched Marissa and Paul say “I do,” and now in just a few weeks, they will […]

Happy 2021, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. It’s hard to believe that such a difficult and strange year has come and gone. Despite many challenges, this year still blessed me with opportunities to share in some special wedding days, and to capture some beautiful memories. I thought it would be […]
