Special Mini Bride Session

Here come the brides...Da da da da!  We had two little brides for yesterday's mini bridal sessions! 

I can't think of a better way to reuse a wedding dress, than this! Although it was a little chilly out these sweethearts put on their mommy's wedding dresses and were incredible little models! Their moms and I had so much fun playing dress up with them! And in between pictures we kept them royally warm by adorning them with a cozy fur coat! Thank you girls for making your mommies so happy! They will cherish this forever I'm sure! 

Aaron & Angie's Beautiful Backyard Wedding

Aaron and Angie's wedding was so incredibly fun and gorgeous! They spent months preparing their new home for their big day and they did such an amazing job!  There are so many reasons why I absolutely loved their wedding! There was so much laughter, so many awesome details, and everyone had such a great time!

These two truly enjoy each other and I absolutely loved taking pictures for them! They were super excited about collaborating with me to create pictures that fit their personality and we had so many great spots to photograph them in! Aaron is a Lieutenant for the fire department and we were so fortunate to be able to use one of the ladder trucks and one of the homes they recently extinguished. A huge thank you to the Fire Department for accompanying us at burn site! And a super huge thank you to my assistant Jen who took such gorgeous photos and danced the rest of the night with me! Aaron and Angie it was such an honor to capture your beautiful wedding and to celebrate with you! Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your day! 

Waiting for Spring: Maternity Session

So excited for this beautiful couple as they await the arrival of their new little one! 

We had the most beautiful day for pictures! The air was surprisingly warmer and it almost felt like spring was just around the corner! The anticipation of spring, here in Michigan, is always great and for this couple it is even greater as it will be their first as a family of three! 

B & A it was incredibly fun taking pictures of the two of you! I am so happy for you both and so happy to know how much joy this brings to your families! Can't wait to meet her and to see you as a beautiful new family!  ~Lindsay 

Fall Mini-The Z Family

This family is so dear to me and getting to take pictures for them is always exciting! This year was especially exciting because Mrs. Z's parents were in town! 

Dear Z family, I am so glad we were able to make this happen during your parents' visit and with the changing of the leaves! Love you guys! ~Lindsay 

The Pastor Family

Tall grass, bridges, and katydids all make for a very fun family portrait adventure!  It was so great to see the Pastor family again and to experience Historic Bridges Park for the first time! Pastor Family, your kiddos are truly great! It was so fun to see them get excited at all the little games we played and looking for katydids with dad in the grass.  You are both doing an amazing job of raising such sweet little ones! I love seeing how you enjoy them!

 Here's a little look back at the last time I saw your beautiful family. It's amazing how fast they have changed in two years!
