Baby Sister On The Way: Studio Maternity Portraits

So happy for this adorable family who will be welcoming baby girl next month! What I love most about this anticipated arrival, is hearing how excited their little girl is about having a baby sister. When little brother came along she snuggled him in all his newborn pictures and just melted all our hearts! She loves being a big sister. She and little brother have such a sweet friendship and it makes me glad to know that their little sister will soon share in the closeness of their sibling fun. Amber and Ben, you are such wonderful parents. I can’t wait to see you all together as a family of five!

 

Big sister snuggles from 2017. Can’t wait to see these two snuggle their new sister!

André & Jen's Detroit Yacht Wedding

I can’t say enough of how much I love this couple! Seeing these two surrounded, supported, and celebrated by their family and friends gave me goosebumps! They make each other laugh so much and have stuck together through thick and thin. Before I even knew how amazing their day was going to be, I just knew I had to be a part of it.

Their beautiful day began at the Greektown Casino Hotel where they had their first look and hopped in a limo to catch the soft cloud covered light surrounding Detroit’s Belle Isle. It is simply gorgeous there! Following their sunny ceremony on the dock everyone boarded the yacht and set sail for the Ambassador bridge.

The captain and crew for the Infinity & Ovation Yacht Charter were absolutely wonderful! The whole party flowed seamlessly and the Captain even let Jen and André steer the boat! Their day was so much fun! Everyone danced and the party ended with everyone surrounding the couple, dancing with drinks in hand, all singing the words together!

Congratulations André and Jen! You are so wonderful together! It was a true joy to celebrating you with your amazing family and friends! Wishing you lots and lots of love! ~Lindsay

Hard to believe this little one is already 6 months! She is truly the happiest baby I've ever met and it's been such an honor to watch her grow. Lindsay and Dan you are doing such a wonderful job of raising such a sweet little girl! Enjoy all her snuggles and have a happy first Father's Day weekend! 

Alex and Alexandra's Wedding Day

Spring peaked just in time for Alex and Alexandra's beautiful Michigan wedding! These two have traveled from Michigan to Texas and back again to be with each other and could not wait for this amazing day to come! 

While an intimate group of friends and family gathered in the sanctuary, Alexandra's father waited to see her in her wedding dress. His expression was priceless!

After a beautiful ceremony, family hugs, and pictures we headed to downtown Jackson for pictures of just the two of them.

There were so many beautiful touches to their day including the beautiful bouquets that Alexandra made with a bracelet in memory of her brother.

Alex and Alexandra, your day was so beautiful! I am so glad you two have found your soul mate (Tu media naranja)! Congratulations and God bless your beautiful life together!

Spring Family Portraits

Caught some spring sunshine and some yellow blooms with this beautiful family last Saturday! It was hard to narrow down favorites for the blog preview. I just love this family! And their little Harper is such a smart little girl. She can already sing her ABCs, count, and hold up two fingers to show how old she is. It sure was fun to get to see these guys again. Can't wait to meet their newest little guy in about 7 more weeks! 

So grateful!

So grateful to Cathy and Lana at Granny D's Christmas Tree Farm and to everyone who came out for Christmas Minis last weekend! There are so many pictures I'd love to share but here are a few from a family that is especially close to my heart.

 It's a huge honor to capture memories for all of you. I am so grateful to be a part of all of your lives. Enjoy sharing your pictures with family this Thanksgiving. May you all feel loved and greatly blessed today. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Soooo Precious!

Labor day weekend was crazy gorgeous here in Michigan and so perfect for celebrating this beautiful couple!

In just a little over a month these two will be married in California where they met! To make sure everyone would be able to join in on the celebration, a pre-wedding reception for family was held at Kevin's parents lake house. The breeze from the lake, boat rides, kayaking, and full service ice cream truck kept everyone pleasantly cool. A special thanks to Lauren from Leave it to Us Wedding & Event Planning for all the beautiful touches you added to their celebration.  Congratulations Kevin and Hannah! I wish you all the best!

Little T's Birthday Bash!

Little T's birthday was loads of fun! He was in the best of spirits and enjoyed the fun room filled with balloons, his first bite of cake, opening presents, and a shower of confetti with his family! It was such a joy to meet his whole family and to see everyone enjoy him! He is one blessed little boy! Compliments to his aunt for her beautiful work on the cake and cupcakes and to little T's mom for all the beautiful decorating! Happy birthday little T! One is so much fun!

Little Sweetheart: L's Newborn Session

Absolutely gushing over this sweet little baby boy! 

I always enjoy collaborating with clients and hearing the ideas they have for pictures! Amy and Ryan had so many fun ideas and beautiful family heirlooms to work with I couldn't wait for picture day! It was so fun getting to capture their sweet sleepy guy with his Great Grandfather's purple heart and WWII military medals and his daddy's baseball jersey and mitt! This family was so enjoyable to hang out with! Even their dog was amazingly chill and friendly!

There is nothing so sweet as a newborn baby! I hope this little guy brings a warm smile to your day! Cause he is crazy cute! Congratulations Ryan and Amy! You are truly blessed! Thanks again for letting me a part of capturing this wonderful moment for your family!
