Grand Rapids Family Studio Photography

Portraits

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…..on this blog! Yay!!! That’s because last weekend we celebrated with Christmas mini sessions at the studio with a Grand Rapids family studio photography session.

Portraits

This year I decided to do something different for Christmas minis….fun and super simple studio mini sessions at a downtown Grand Rapids studio. And they were SO.MUCH.FUN!

Muskegon Twin Newborn Photo Session

Portraits

I have been waiting and waiting (patiently) to meet these sweet twin girls for their newborn photo session in Muskegon. We had it scheduled for a few days after they arrived, but sweet Alice had to stay in the NICU a little longer than expected. They took really good care of her and she’s as […]

It’s that time of year again when the leaves on the trees aren’t all that pretty and the gorgeous fluffy snow hasn’t covered all the brown yet so we decided to do something different this year for this family…..downtown Grand Rapids family photos!

Family photos are such a great gift and extended family photo sessions in Grand Rapids are even better!

Fall family photos at a gorgeous setting in West Michigan…. what could be better?! I simply adore this family!

Haven is seriously one adorable little girl. And she’s pretty well loved too! I met up with her and her momma in Sparta for some fall family photos and we had so much fun! We laughed, we chased and we just soaked up every minute of sunshine that the day gave us knowing that the […]
