Grand Rapids Newborn Photographer // Baby Mathias!

There’s nothing sweeter than being able to photograph a newborn baby boy’s first days inside his own home with his mommy, daddy and adorable big sister.  My most favorite part of my job is being able to see a family grow.  I was lucky enough to be there for Jess and Eric’s engagement session, wedding, maternity photos and now this….their first little addition to their family.  Congratulations you too!!  I just love him.  He is SOOOO handsome!!!

We all know that having a baby is hard work….but Jess makes it look easy.  Gorgeous momma!

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!

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!

Photographed by associate photographer – Kristi!

Newaygo Family Photographer // Liam’s Family!

A couple weeks ago I stopped at my brother’s house for a mini session of him, his gorgeous wife Kara and his handsome three boys.  What a blessed guy he is!

I don’t think the dog, Sassy, is enjoying the photo as much as the boys are.  Silly kids.


My brother Greg owns a tree removal company, so these photos are rather fitting….


He requested a photo of just Kara which I thought was pretty sweet!


Michigan Family Photographer // The Hetler Family!

These five are my family!  Emma, my beautiful niece who happens to be my youngest daughter’s bff, and Abby & Noah, my oldest daughter’s best friends, are such great kids.  We love having them around!
