Chelsea + Sean // Wedding Preview April 9, 2014 Leave a Fabulous Comment

ac2_0696-copy

Saturday, March 29, 2014 - Clarkston, MI

Chelsea + Sean were wed a few weeks ago at Pine Knob Mansion on a chilly spring day. When it was time to go outdoor for portraits, I gave a lot of props to Chelsea who braved the wind and chilly temps without any complaints. For us Michiganders, after such a long winter, anything above 20 degrees feels like a heatwave. But Chelsea and Sean reside in the much warmer state of Virginia so neither were expecting such a cold day.

Sean’s daughter was one of the flower girls and this girl had my heart the moment I met her.  When Chelsea was getting her hair done, she came over to exclaim that she would “never forget this day” with a heavy sigh and a sweet smile. Heart melt! She was so excited to have Chelsea a part of their family!

Super cool vintage fabrics and lots of great ways to style them.  These are for sure my new spring and summer staples this year!

These pretty products aren’t yet in her shop, but stay tuned when they launch next month and check back here for a giveaway of one of her pieces here on the blog. Start picking out your favorites now! I have a feeling these are going to go quickly.

A huge thank you to all involved in this shoot. The line-up included //

Baby Reid // Newborn Session // Grand Rapids Newborn Photographer February 12, 2014 Leave a Fabulous Comment

ac2_8642-copy

Weighing in at just under six pounds when he came to the studio, sweet tiny baby Reid was ready for his close up for his first tiny photoshoot.  Proud parents Phil+Nicole are dazzled by this precious little one, and who can blame them.
I’m pretty sure this little babe is going to have pretty red hair like his mom and dad.  And speaking of red hair…is Nicole the prettiest new mom you’ve ever seen?
It was great to snuggle this sweet new human and to see his proud parents already so in love.  I’m so happy for you Phil+Nicole! It will never tire me to see families grow.
