I'm a tender hearted soul who believes there is good in every day, even if you have to go looking for it.
This session is so incredibly sweet. I was lucky enough to be Steve and Annette’s wedding photographer in Grand Rapids several years ago and now I’m even more blessed being able to capture portrait sessions for them as their family continues to grow. Isn’t Annette stunning? She is a friend of mine from all the […]
This Michigan maternity session is what photography dreams are made of! I met this beautiful family at one of my favorite fields in Rockford, Michigan on a windy spring day. We played, laughed, smiled and had a lot of fun. Michelle was gorgeous in her white dress and flower crown and sweet daughter was her […]
I love this session but I love the people even more! Do you remember Adam and Mari? I photographed their wedding this past summer at the Felt Estate in Holland and just recently I was lucky enough to photograph them as an almost family of four at the Downtown Market in Grand Rapids! How special! […]
There is this field in Rockford Michigan that is basically a unicorn so I was so happy that Erin agreed to have her maternity session taken there. The whole field is neutral and soft, making the subject stand out and their connection be the focus. I just love it. This little family of three is […]
Maggie was absolutely glowing at her maternity session in Rockford Michigan and I was lucky enough to be the photographer! We were hoping for some beautiful fall colors but I think what we ended up with was even better. Some sunlight, a soft breeze and that stunning field of soft, neutral colors that made the […]
Alex and Samantha met me at The Highlands in Grand Rapids for their maternity session. They are so excited to meet their first sweet baby and so am I!!! We don’t know if they are having a boy or girl (oh my….they are so brave..!) so what a fun surprise that’ll be! Check back in […]
Being a part of families celebrations is extremely special to me. This celebration was just that and even sweeter. Bethany and her family are expecting their beautiful rainbow baby and we made sure to remember this precious time by a maternity photo session here in Grand Rapids, Michigan. These are the days that I’ll never […]
This beautiful couple is Doug and Julia. You may remember them from a few years ago at one of my most favorite weddings at The Felt Estate in Holland….well now these two are going to be parents! We decided to take their maternity photos indoors at a Grand Rapids studio because the weather is so […]
This gorgeous momma-to-be is Isabel. You may remember her from a couple years ago as one of our “Hetler Brides”, but she was also on our photo team for several years as an associate photographer and a second shooter. We miss her dearly now that she’s moved to North Carolina but it was so fun […]
This maternity session is so special. These two, Mike and Alicia, are our dear friends. We took some time out of our forever busy lives to take maternity photos in Sparta Michigan before this baby arrived. It was a race against the clock between Covid “stay-at-home” orders and baby’s due date, but we made it! […]
