Michigan Apple Blossom Family Photos

Families & Children

These family photos were taken in Grand Rapids Michigan in an apple orchard full of apple blossoms. What a perfect location! The sun was setting, the trees were bursting with life and the family was just simply happy to be together. My favorite kind of family photo session 🙂 You may remember Nick and Julie […]

Kalamazoo Family Photography

Portraits

This family photography session that I took in Kalamazoo was for my very own girls, so I may be a little biased by how cute they are! This summer I photographed this gorgeous couple at Shades of Lavendar Farm in Kalamazoo, but first I wanted to scope it out for myself before meeting the couple […]

Portraits

This Grand Rapids winter maternity photo session is one of my favorites! Teresa and I were chatting for a while about ideas and how she wanted pine trees with snow.
