 Real moments like these always melt my heart.

Newborn Session {David}

Born almost a month early, this little fella is truly a miracle... and a sleepy one at that! I might have been a little obsessed with his adorable little toes.

Newborn Session {Kenneth Raymond III}

Seems like yesterday I was doing a maternity session for this little guy's beautiful mama. It's been such a joy photographing this family and watching them grow. This little fella was all sorts of sweet!

Maternity Session {Diana & Matt}

I think I might have told Diana I loved her hair at least 20 times during her session. Seriously though she is stunning! Matt and Diana are expecting a little girl in just a few short weeks!

Quinn Turns One!

This little one was the most expressive kiddo I have had to date. Meet Quinn and her beautiful family...

 Hey lady are you watching this? Because what I'm about to do is going to blow your mind.

Introducing Archer

Well here he is. Our newest little fella Archie. It's been a whirlwind these past few weeks. In his spare time he likes to eat, sleep, did I mention eat, and make growling noises at everyone. Here's a little sneak into our life... both posed and lifestyle images.

Terrell Family Session

6 months ago I was photographing this adorable set of twins in my studio. It was such a blast to have the Terrell family back again, and to see how much Hudson & Riley have grown!

Newborn Session {Makenna}

Beautiful Makenna was worth the wait. She may have made her grand entrance a little later than expected, but nontheless cherished and loved.

Newborn Session {Matthew}

Meet little Matthew and his adorable cheeks not to mention hair! It was hard handing him back to Mom & Dad at the end of his session.

 Those sweet baby rolls!

Maternity Session {Jen & Matt}

Completely ecstatic about this maternity session. We had beautiful weather, and I absolutely loved that Jen and Matt brought their fur babies. Not to mention Jen looked stunning in her ivory, lace dress!

6 Month Session {Harper}

Harper was one of the very first newborns I had the opportunity to photograph when I launched my photography business. It's amazing to see how much she has grown, and somehow even more beautiful than ever.

Engagement & Maternity Session {Ragone Family}

Such a beautiful family and beautiful location! I met up with the Ragone family at the WJ Beal Botanical Gardens at MSU for their session this past weekend. We lucked out and were able to sneak in some photos before the rain came. Sarah was just stunning in her gorgeous dress.

Colt & Lyla Turn 2!

How adorable are twins Colt and Lyla?!? Their parents brought beautiful wooden horses from when they were little to their session. It was pretty obvious Colt and Lyla cherished these horses.

 I think she's ready for her modeling career &lt;3

Personal Weekly Favorites

I have a busy week of client sessions which of course I am thankful for. Sometimes it can be challenging trying to balance family and work which is something I think many of us face. I try and make sure to capture images of my boys whenever I have the opportunity, but also try to not force it and have it be a natural part of our lives. Even though I do not have as much time as I like to go through all of the photos I've taken, I'm glad nonetheless that the little things and major milestones are being captured.

Holland Session {Lampen Family}

This weekend I had the chance to head to the beautiful Felt Mansion in Holland to photograph this gorgeous family. Parker and Brooks are two very active little boys, and an extra bonus was that I got a nice little workout chasing them around!

Newborn Session {Simon}

Meet Simon. He was a sleepy little fella who liked to flash a smile my way about every 5 minutes. Such a treat! It wasn't that long ago that I had the privilege of taking maternity photos of his beautiful mother. One of the best parts of what I do, is watching a family grow whether it's through children, major milestones and/or pets. Whatever it may be that I am asked to capture, it's truly an honor.
