This past weekend I photographed the most spectacular circus birthday party. There were so many adorable details I'll have to share a separate post. This little cutie just turned one and I hope you love this little preview of how he enjoyed his day. Can't wait to share more soon!
Sharing a few from Sunday's in home maternity session with one of my favorite couples! This spring their new baby girl will be here and I cannot wait to meet her! Lisa you look absolutely amazing! I enjoyed so much getting to see you guys! May will be here before you know it! Looking forward to capturing your sweet little family of three soon!
A few favorites from last weekend's family portraits with the Goldfarb family! I love how easy this family can laugh and talk with with one another. Their sons were home for a brief visit and I'm so glad we were able to capture a bit of their time together before back to their internships and school. Thank you again Goldfarb family for having me out. You're such a sweet family! I hope you have a fun and relaxing Labor Day weekend!
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!
Sneak peek from Meghan & John's wedding! Their day, their families, and their love are so beautiful! Can't wait to share more from their spectacular celebration!!!
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!
No need to wait for spring! Come into the studio where the flowers are blooming! I'll be sending out an email with details for Spring Floral Minis soon! Subscribe to the blog to get on the list!
Be prepared for a cuteness overload! Little Aedan has just turned one and he and big brother celebrated with cake and a bit of building block fun! Hard to believe this sweet little guy is already one!
Wishing you a day filled with kindness, thoughtfulness, and love all around you!
Happy day of love!
Sharing a whole lot of cuteness on the blog tonight! Hope this little guy brings a smile to your face. He loved his birthday balloons so much he got all tangled up in them! He was super happy to be in daddy's arms and even gave mommy some kisses. He is such a sweetheart!
A little sneak peek from this adorable family session! Little Miss E arrived two weeks ago and we are all just smitten with her! These little kiddos are all so adorable I cannot wait to share more soon! But here are just a few until then. Congratulations Marilynn and Travis! You have such a beautiful family!
Happy birthday to this sweet little guy who will be turning one very soon!
Capturing the busyness of a one year old is so much fun! He loved riding his car and catching bubbles. We set out a big bucket of soapy water and sponges for him and he wasn't so sure what this car washing business was all about. But boy did he look so adorable all sudsy in his overalls!
Emily & Jim it was so wonderful to meet you and your sweet little Mr. C! He is truly adorable!!! Can't wait to share more with you soon!
Heartfelt embraces, love stories, and laughter! Lisa & Brennan's day had it all! Their day was simply beautiful and such an honor to be a part of!
We arrived just in time to see Lisa all teary eyed as she sat down to read her love letter from Brennan and note from her second love...her cat (A.K.A. "Allie Cat"). Perfect timing just before makeup! Though, not even makeup could keep the tears at bay throughout the day for this sweet bride. All day long Brennan was so happy that he could not stop smiling!
Father Jim Shaver, knowing Brennan and Lisa well, led such a beautiful ceremony full of encouragement and blessing. After the ceremony, family and friends enjoyed cocktail hour at the Jackson Country Club, while the bridal party celebrated together on the party bus on their way to Art 634, Jackson's historic train station, & The Grand River Memorial City Park for some Jackson skyline shots. Brennan's brother (Best Man) and friends kept things pretty alive with lots of jokes and even a prank (See pictures below)!
DJ Matthew Wade kept everyone on their toes with an incredibly fun kissing couples game and impressive and hilarious reading of Brennan and Lisa's versions of their love story! After a spectacular dinner (which included delicious homemade Galumpkis made that morning by the Father of the Groom!) and dancing was under way we headed out on the golf course for some sunset pictures!
It was a true pleasure to be a part of this wedding. Everyone was so kind and thoughtful and we got to serve alongside a such spectacular professionals! I want to give a huge thank you to my assistant photographer Erica. You are AMAZING and a joy to work with! And big thank you to both Jenna and Spencer of Dream Real Video. You guys were so wonderful to work with! You can check out their beautiful video of Brennan and Lisa's day here! And last but not least-Major props to DJ Matthew Wade & your assistant Caleb for making the night so incredibly fun! You truly blessed us all with a wonderful night! I look forward to working with all of you again in the future!

Sneak peek from yesterday evening's family session! Their beautiful girls are just the sweetest! It was our first time at this garden, there was so much to see! Their littlest one just melted my heart and lead the way around the garden! We had fun exploring with her!
A tea party, a picnic, and a stroll! Year one is a busy time and so much fun! Happy birthday little Miss H! It was fun getting to see you play and enjoy your new tea set. You are simply adorable!
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!
I've been looking forward to taking portraits for the "H" family! So glad they could have all their kids home for the holidays! Here are a just a couple of from their session!
"H" family it was so great seeing all of you together! You're a fun bunch to be with! I hope your Christmas together was wonderful! Take care and God bless! ~Lindsay
One of my favorite families and I set out to experience one of my most favorite places...the open field at the armory!
There were so many wonderful moments while taking pictures for these guys that I just had to share so many! I loved watching how the kids enjoyed playing in such a big open space and seeing how they could make each other laugh and smile! B family, you are always so incredibly fun to take pictures for! The chemistry between you two, J & K, is beautiful and the love and cuddles that your kids want to give you the whole time just melts me! You are such a beautiful family and I have loved seeing your precious kiddos grow every year! Love you guys! ~Lindsay
Very excited for this beautiful couple as they await their new little one!

They are such a sweet couple and it makes me so happy to know their little one will have parents who are the best of friends! K you look absolutely beautiful! Thank you for choosing me to help capture this incredible moment in time for you guys!
