Family, balloons, cake, ice cream, confetti- Celebrating Leo's one year birthday was a blast! He enjoyed playing with the balloons, his cousins, and loved his cake so much he gave it a hug! He is one happy baby and it was so fun to watch him and his big brother enjoy the party. Happy birthday little buddy!
Happy one year birthday to this little guy who already likes to play golf just like daddy! He knew just what to do when we gave him the ball and club. Big sister was so lovey with him (just like she was for his newborn portraits).
Amber and Ben your babies are so sweet it was hard to choose only a few pictures for this post! I can't wait to share the rest with you. You are such a kind, caring, and beautiful family. I've enjoyed so much getting to see your little ones grow.
Have a happy Father's day together!
There's nothing better than living life with your best friend. And buying the same vehicle you had when you first were married (before kids)! How fun! I've been looking forward to anniversary pictures with these two and we had the perfect night for it. Congratulations Veronica and Neil for twenty years of marriage and twenty four years of friendship.
Hard to believe it's already been a year since this little guy arrived! He is such a happy little baby always ready to smile for baby talk. I have loved so much getting to watch him grow and getting to take pictures of his silly big brother and sister. They always made pictures extra fun :) Morgan and Drew you have such a beautiful family. Thank you so much for choosing me to capture your portraits. I adore your kiddos and I hope to see all of you again sometime soon!
Little Miss A has arrived! Congratulations Lisa and Brennan!Read More

Some favorites from this morning's cake smash in the studio! These two loved eating cake (or rather frosting) and playing with bubbles. It was so fun celebrating their one year milestone! Rachel and Troy your girls are the cutest! Thank you for bring them in for pictures. It was so wonderful to see you all again!
Wow! This past year went so fast! It truly feels like only last month this little cutie was born. I have loved every minute of picture time her. She is so full of personality, beauty, and happiness!
Thank you Lindsay and Dan for choosing me to capture her first year of life milestones. It has been an honor to watch her grow. She's one amazing and lovable little girl! Blessings to your sweet family and happy new year!
It's been a chilly morning but boy has it been fun! Here are some favorites of the kiddos from this morning's Christmas minis. Can't wait to take more this afternoon! Stay tuned for more!
Until next time, CHEERS!
A few favorites from last Saturday's family portraits. She is such a little cutie! She was a serious explorer of the woods and loved eating the apples I brought, but we caught a few smiles in that gorgeous morning light. So great seeing your beautiful family Matt and Sara!
Had to share a few more from tonight's engagement session. The sunset was absolutely breathtaking and these two and their little Corgies are so adorable!
Here's someone cute to brighten your day! This little autumn cutie has hit her 9 month milestone and will be a year in December. I can't believe how fast the year has gone! She's the happiest little girl I know and is now so curious and crawling everywhere. I just can't help but share her adorableness!
It's always such a treat to see this family! We had a lovely time at Meckley's apple orchard and I can't wait to go back this Friday! The best time for apple orchard pictures are when the flowers bloom in spring April/May and in September when the apples are still on the trees. Ilike to keep an eye out for when the peek times are. So if you love what you see here, definitely contact me in advance to make sure you get the best out of the orchard experience. Happy autumn!
Chris and Jessica's day was blessed with sunshine, family and friends from all over the states, and so much to entertain! It was the perfect day!
When we arrived the Barn was absolutely stunning and the girls were all dressed in matching flannel shirts.!They were so cute laughing, getting emotional, and doting all over Jessica. It was adorable to see how close they all were!
Growing up their families attended church together and it was at this very church where they first met each other. So prior to the ceremony, tucked away without seeing each other they took a moment to pray. And as guests were seated upstairs you could feel the excitement and joy of the two families ready to come together.
At Black Barn Vineyard (BBV) everywhere we we went was picturesque! While guests enjoyed the cocktail hour, the bridal party explored the grounds and we made our way into the vineyards.
Dinner was so delicious! The speeches were hilarious (including the best man's who couldn't be there but gave his via live video chat courtesy of the DJ), everyone enjoyed the sunset while playing lawn games, and talked into the night on the open bar patio. As the sky grew dark everyone filled the dance floor and the photo booth.
And before anyone could get tired (With exception of the little people), the S'more Bar was lit and everyone enjoyed sweet treats from The Oak Tree Lounge. Everyone stayed until the end of the night when it was time to say farewell and Chris and Jessica ran off into a flurry of bubbles to their honeymoon!
Chris & Jess, it was such an honor to be a part of capturing your day! You are truly blessed with so much love surrounding you and I'm so glad to know that you have God as your center. Much love and God bless you in your new life together!
And last but not least, THANK YOUS!
A huge thank you to my incredible colleague, dear friend, and 2nd shooter, Jennifer Jacobs! You are my 2nd half! My mind reader! You do such amazing work!

The Garden at The Dahlem Center was the perfect place for little Miss E to explore while family gathered for pictures. I haven't seen her and Mr L since his newborn session and I could not wait to see them again! Thank you Shelly for coming out for pictures! You and your family are so fun to be around!
A handful of bridal party favorites from Chris' and Jess's lovely Black Barn Vineyard wedding! There were so many gorgeous magical moments! I can't wait to share more soon!
I love this family so much! Can't believe how much their kiddos have grown since we last took pictures! Here are just a few of my favorites from our time on the Battlecreek Riverwalk. Charis and Jeremy, you guys are adorable! Can't wait to share the rest with you soon! ~Lindsay
Oh my goodness! Aren't they just beautiful?! These two little dolls came in for a quick visit the other day for their 6 month milestone and I was so glad we got some happy smiley faces. They sure do like when mommy talks baby talk to them and that's all it took for their smiles :) Thank you Rachel for bringing the girls in to the studio! It was fun getting hold them and see how much they love their mama!
