Do you know what the best thing about being a Grand Rapids photographer is? The people. I love creating portraits that will be a part of your family forever, but what I really love is getting to know you. Learning about your family, why you fell in love, what you enjoy doing on the weekends, what your passions in life are…. The things that really matter.
It is so fun to revisit some of my favorite portraits from the year, seeing where the 365 days took us. Instead of the best dresses, best wedding cakes, etc…. I’m going to focus on photos that expressed some of the things that mattered the most.
Today – we are going to celebrate PURE JOY in 2019!
Gahhhh! This photo of Roseli and her sweet daughter from her maternity session just makes my heart skip a beat!
