Grand Rapids Maternity Photographer // Katie + Chad + Baby!

Right before Christmas, I met up with Katie and Chad and their sweet family to photograph a fun maternity and family session at their horse farm.  What a fun (and cold) time this was!  We walked around and found so many different textures….what a beautiful place!

Beautiful Etta…..the momma to be horse!

I asked Chad to lean in and give Katie a kiss…..next thing you know Etta is jumping in the frame to pass one out as well!  

Congratulations on your newest addition.  I can’t wait to meet this little one!

Grand Rapids Family Photographer // Hunter & Cole’s Family!

JoEllen is a friend from high school.  She and I actually are birthday twins….so she is extra special to me 🙂  It has always been on the top of her dream list to have family photos taken in the snow and this year we finally have enough pretty snow before Christmas to make that happen.  I hope these photos live up to what you were hoping for!!

Hunter and Cole.  Two of the sweetest boys I know.

Josh and JoEllen are such wonderful people!  No wonder they have such great kids….

Sparta Family Photographer // Emma’s Family!

The only other Hetler family that I know!

Aren’t my nieces beautiful?!

Noah looks just like his dad!

The twins….and two of my daughter, Addison’s, best friends.

I love these three!  

Rockford, Michigan Newborn Photographer // Baby Reese!

Baby Reese made her appearance earlier this week and is as cute as can be.  Her big sister is in love and had fun showing me all of her fingers and toes.  Girls are seriously the best (or maybe I am a little biased since I have two of my own….?).  Enjoy the images of these cuties and their mom and dad.  Hopefully they make your day just a little brighter…!

Oh my!  So, so perfect.  She looks like a little baby doll….

It took a while, but she finally fell asleep (at the end of the session….ha!)

I love this shot of Reese and her momma.  Beautiful!

Sparta Family Photographer // Hannah’s Family!

Hannah makes my job easy.  With her cute smile and sweet little cheeks….I had plenty of adorableness to photograph!  Enjoy her and her family today!!

Who said you need lots of fall color left on the trees for photos to look good?!

Oh my….her smile just melts my heart!

West Michigan Newborn Photographer // Baby Bennett!

Bennett is finally here!  I was lucky enough to able to photograph his parents earlier this fall during their maternity session so seeing him in his first couple of weeks after birth was such a joy!  What a little bundle of love he is….and all that hair!  Perfect!!  Mike & Jen – congratulations on your little man….I bet you can’t get enough of him!

Their house was a photographer’s dream for photos….SO much natural light!

Baby yawns…!

I can see them playing catch in the backyard already.

Bennett’s nursery is seriously a dream.  I think I could move in there!

Jen – what a beautiful mother you are.  He is lucky to have you.

Sparta Family Photographer // Easton & Leighla’s Family!

As the weather gets colder and colder, the photo sessions seem to get shorter and shorter.  Every year this seems to happen which just means that my fingers have to work a little faster!  Thankfully these smiling faces were easy to photograph 🙂

This is a gorgeous family that was new to my camera this year…..I just hope to be able to photograph them again!  I hope you enjoy some of these Christmas inspired portraits!

Michigan Family Photographer // Arden’s Family!

We have been nonstop busy with mini sessions this fall and I have to say….I love it!  I am so lucky to meet so many wonderful families each and every year like this one.  Arden’s family met me one weekend morning at my house and it was COLD.  I think this was probably the quickest mini session that I have ever taken!  I’m pretty proud of that little cutie though….she was freezing but still had fun!

Mom!  Don’t embarrass me……

Of course….dads are always the ones to do the crazy stuff 🙂

Grand Rapids Children Photographer // Oliver!

Oliver is just about the cutest little man ever.  At first he was a little shy, but with some pretend falling by his grandma….his smiling kicked into overdrive!  He has an infectious laugh that never gets old and made my weekend so much better.  The world is a better place with this cutie in it!

Kisses from mom and grandma!

Sparta Family Photographer // Jaden & Ava’s Family!

I met up with Jaden and Ava’s family for a super chilly morning photo session.  We were safe until the very end…..and it started to rain.  I think we still pulled it off though…don’t you?!

It was freezing!  These kids did such a great job despite the cold….

Miss Ava is going to be a big sister soon.  Yay!

They love their daddy 🙂

Ava was cold so she put her mommas jacket on.  I had to snap a photo….it was too cute!

What a stunning momma-to-be you are, Lacey!
