A hole in ONE!: First Birthday Cake Smash

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!

Sneak Peek! Riverwalk Family Portrait Session

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

Elliot's 3 Month Milestone

Loved seeing these little happy faces on Sunday! Aren't they the cutest! Little Elliot is 3 months now and such a good baby boy! I just can't get enough of his smile! Apparently if you can talk baby talk with a really high pitched voice, he will smile at you aaalll day! Ha! Ha! 

Sarah & Patrick's Vintage Lake House Wedding

Sarah and Patrick's day was absolutely stunning, but what you must know about these two, is that whatever they do they do whole heartedly! Sarah in my book wins bride of the year for making her own wedding cake (blueberry and thyme cake with lemon curd filling, and butter cream frosting) and sewing dresses for their daughter and all the little flower girls. Together they even home brewed their own pale ale for their guests! This all being done for their Michigan wedding while living in New York! 

These two have been in love for quite some time and as the ceremony began you could already tell how much the two families had already become one.  The girls carried bouquets filled with the lovely scent of sage and the flower girls carried baskets with rosemary and lavender. The weather was perfect and everything looked, felt, and even smelled beautiful!

Following the ceremony guests enjoyed cocktails (created by the bride & groom), hors d'oeuvres, and a family style dinner catered by Katherine's Catering. Everyone enjoyed dancing while the sun set over the lake and the celebration concluded with a large group photo and bouquet toss! It was an absolute pleasure getting to spend the day with this couple and their kind, generous, and sincerely cool family and friends. 

 

Congratulations to you Sarah and Patrick! You two are amazingly talented and you and your family are such beautiful people inside and out!

A huge thank you to Jennifer Buehrer and her team for their incredible coordinating of the ceremony at the Hillsdale Arboretum and complete set up of the lake house reception. You all made the vision come alive!  And a special thanks to my wonderful friend and assistant Erica McIntosh for the beautiful photos you take. And to Jennifer Buehrer again for the untouched reception and cocktail hour shots you were able to sneak in before the party started! You are both so amazing to work with! We make a great team!

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! 

Back To The Orchard

It is always wonderful to take portraits in a place that holds a lot of meaning for my clients. For this beautiful family, some very important moments have taken place in the setting of an apple orchard! I have been wanting to take portraits at an orchard and was very excited to know it would be the perfect way to incorporate a bit of their story and to know that every time they look back at their portraits they would be reminded of such key moments in their life. 

Mr. and Mrs. F you are such a fun and easygoing family! I absolutely loved taking portraits for you! Thank you again for choosing me to photograph your beautiful family! God bless you as you continue in the work that you do! ~Lindsay
