West Michigan Photographer // Michigan Mortgage!

At the end of summer last year, I photographed this fun group to help update their new website with new head shots and group photos.  I never posted the photos because I wanted to make sure that I was able to include the link to their website with these photos included….so here it is!  Everyone involved was so easy to work with and extremely kind & fun!  Go visit their website…and if you are in the process of moving, consider checking them out for your mortgage needs!   (I even saw one of the images on their billboard one day while driving down the highway!  What a fun surprise!)

Orlando Maternity Photographer // Shannon & Rick!

Do you remember Rick and Shannon’s beautiful wedding from a few years ago?  Well…..these two are adding a sweet little one their family in a few weeks!  Seeing families grow is the best part of my job.  From engagement session to wedding day to baby #1, #2, #3……..being a part of your family is what I love!!

While on our family vacation in Orlando, Florida this February, I met up with Shannon and Rick for a few hours to capture these images.  I hope you two love them and enjoy your baby girl even more!

It was a little hazy that morning which gave us a little glow for the first half hour….

Grand Rapids Maternity Photographer // Eric + Jess + Baby!

Do you remember these two?  I was lucky enough to be able to photograph their wedding a couple of years ago on a gorgeous super snowy November day….and here they are having their first baby together.  A sweet little boy!  I can’t wait for him to arrive!!  Thankfully we didn’t have quite as much snow to fight through during this session, but I just love these images.  Sweet Natalie and their adorable pup too….the whole family came along for the fun :)

Michigan Children Photographer // Ella – One Year Old!

Little Miss Ella is one year old now and she just happens to be my birthday twin!  I’m a little late in sharing these images because I let her mommy post them first.  Isn’t she the sweetest?!  I just love her sweet and adorable personality, not to mention those kissable cheeks!  Happy birthday princess!

Michigan Wedding Photographer // 2016 Wedding Recap!

2016 was such a fun year with so many beautiful weddings.  Each year we are so blessed to meet new brides and grooms that make their way right into our hearts and this year was no different.  I love how Kristi and Isabel have become such an important part of our Hetler team…without them the past few years wouldn’t be the same!  I can’t wait to see what 2017 has waiting for us!

Let’s take a look back on the past year before the new one gets under way.  One last chance to stop, take a breath, enjoy all the hard work and love poured into each and every one of these events.  We hope and pray that every one of our couples has a lifetime of happiness and adventure ahead!

Grand Rapids Family Photographer // The Chapman Family!

The best Christmas gift is a family portrait.  I may be a little biased, but as a mom, being able to look back on how your children change over the years is sure to make you shed a few tears.  You may remember Matt and Jamie from earlier this fall when they said I do, but this time Kristi photographed Jamie’s entire family for an early Christmas gift.  Enjoy these fun photos!
