Anna + Jake // Engagement Session // New York Engagement Photographer May 21, 2015 Leave a Fabulous Comment

AC2_8429smallNew York has a vibrancy to it that you can actually feel. So do Anna+Jake.

This well-dressed duo is getting married next summer in Michigan (at one of my favorite venues!) however they reside in New York, and when discussing their engagement session, it made perfect sense to celebrate their time living here together.

There is much to adore about these two. They are well-polished and well-rounded. Successful and kind-hearted and just plain fun to be around! Anna also writes and keeps up a blog that I have enjoyed following (and wrote about her and Jake’s engagement session here!) and for those who love fitness, fashion and food (me!) you might enjoy following as well.

This pretty shoot was also featured on Style Me Pretty last week, should you like to take a look at a few more from their session.

Anna+Jake // you two are lovely in every way.

Spring Mini Sessions // Grand Rapids Family + Children Photographer May 15, 2015 Leave a Fabulous Comment

AC2_1049

When I get to combine two things I love so dearly…photography and animals…I have one very happy soul. Earlier this month, I teamed with a dear friend and her 4H team she leads…the Ada Alpaca Amigos…to host a day of mini sessions that also included some sweet animal and feathered friends. Families of course didn’t have to include them into their session with me, but they sure were a delightful addition to the pictures.

Enjoy some of my favorites from the day, in no particular order. And if you can’t tell later in this post, the two 20-something girls who joined for a ‘best friends’ shoot…well, what a great idea! I highly think this should be a new category of photography. So sweet!

 Last November little Miss Laide entered our world and brought so many blessings to her mama and dad. This newborn session was an easy favorite. Emily and Dave have a beautiful home together in Chicago and it’s all the more complete with their new baby girl. Enjoy this sweet newborn session at their home this past fall.

Michelle + Kirk // Detroit Wedding Photographer // Addison Oaks Wedding April 2, 2015 Leave a Fabulous Comment


MK1

 This day and this couple just win.

There are a lot of really sweet things I could tell you about this wedding day. I could tell you about how both of these families jumped in, helped create, make and set up so many special parts of this day. I could tell you that they know what every one at this wedding knows…that Michelle and Kirk are crazy in love with each other. When I asked Kirk his feelings about what this day meant for him prior to the ceremony, his immediate tears welling in his eyes told me everything I needed to know (sorry Kirk). When I saw both of them as they locked eyes down the aisle, I knew I was witnessing something pure and good. But as always, I would rather tell you my emotions and thoughts through the pictures here on this blog.

I think it’s clearly obvious how much I adore Michelle+Kirk. I had the pleasure of shooting Kirk’s sister’s 5 wedding years ago and their cousin’s wedding 2 summers ago. Their family is fiercely loving and rallies around their own. Documenting weddings is such a great joy to me…especially when I get to see familiar faces again!
