Hoffmaster Park Senior Session

Seniors

Hailey is gorgeous…obviously. I mean, look at her beautiful smile! We met at Hoffmaster State Park for her senior session on a cloudy summer night and we had so much fun. My favorite thing about Hailey was how willing she was to try anything for photos. We decided that if we didn’t love a photo….we […]

This senior session is so fun! I was lucky enough to be Kennedy’s photographer for her senior photos and we ventured all the way to the Muskegon lakeshore to capture just how gorgeous she truly is!

I LOVE taking senior photos…especially when they are at gorgeous locations like Lake Michigan! Sydney is graduating next year which will be here before we know it!

Families & Children

This session belongs to one of my most favorite families. We went back and forth and then back and forth again about rescheduling this photo session due to the forecast and because of the long drive to Coldwater but we decided to just push through and go for it. I’m so glad we did! Not […]

Braden’s senior session in downtown Newaygo was so fun. We met up along the Muskegon River for his senior photos because he loves the outdoors and he loves to fly fish. Combining activities that seniors are interested in with their photos makes me happy….and being creative with those activities helps create unique photos! Braden – […]

Downtown Grand Rapids Senior Pics

These senior pics were so fun to take in downtown Grand Rapids. When Cole & Cori’s mom first contacted me, we started brainstorming ideas of where to have their photos taken and we ended on downtown….in the city. I just love shooting here! You can walk a city block and easily have enough good light, […]

This is the third and final senior session for my gorgeous niece, Emma! Her first two sessions were in a beautiful lavender field and downtown Grand Rapids, but this session was taken on the Pere Marquette beach in Muskegon for her senior photos.

This beauty here is Sophia. I met up with her in Grand haven for her senior photos and we had so much fun. We got our workout in walking through the dunes and sand, saw several deer galloping throughout the park and were gifted with the most beautiful summer evening sun and sunset. All in […]

I met up with Aubrey and her momma at Roselle Park in Ada for her senior photos and we had so much fun. We had plans of walking the park looking for fun backdrops but ended up not wandering far from the entrance. There were pretty flowers popping up everywhere and the the light was […]
