February Portrait Sale!

Being stuck indoors for most of January gave me a lot of time to rethink the studio space. To make things more comfortable and organized, I’ve created a new space for wardrobe changes, made more room for new backdrops and added a new cozy bed set up. The natural light is so gorgeous and has me so excited to take more pictures in this space.

So it only feels right to celebrate having survived the Polar Vortex with a SALE! 

For this month only, book a studio session during the week, that’s Monday thru Friday for  1/2 OFF!! That’s right! Half off newborn, maternity, child, cake smashes, head shots, and family portraits!

Contact me soon to get on the calendar. Know someone who wants portraits? Please share!

Jackson MI's Brightwalls Mural Festival

So much color, life, and excitement surrounding our city these past five days! It has been incredible to watch the process of each artist’s creation unfold on our city’s walls! This, by far, is my favorite thing that has ever happened here in Jackson, MI. I feel so grateful for the Jackson Young Professionals and all of the sponsors who worked so hard to make this event happen. My family has enjoyed this event so much and will continue to enjoy these murals for years to come!

Tomorrow the murals will all be completed but here are some of my favorite images capturing them in the making.

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!

Happy Anniversary

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. 

 

 

Sweet Little Ones

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! 

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

The Goldfarb Family

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!

Sweet Little Family

So excited to share favorites from last Sunday's session with the Haroff family! Their love for each other is so sweet! Their youngest just turned two and he is an absolutely precious wide eyed explorer. And their oldest is so caring, kind, and patient. I love these guys! Aren't they adorable?! 

Anna's Horse Show 2017

A couple of years back I had the honor of taking pictures for Anna and her horse Tinkerbell and it was so much fun! Since then she has continued to ride and has grown into such a beautiful young lady. This past weekend she took her horse Max to an open competition and it was so beautiful to see her riding so gracefully with him. Anna I'm so proud of you! You are a true sweetheart!  Enjoy your summer and I hope to bring our boys out to see you ride again soon! 

They grow so fast! Hard to believe these pictures from her first photo shoot were just two years ago!

Meet the newest little addition to the L family! 

I could not wait to meet this little guy in person and to see how much big sister had grown in a year. Little Miss E just turned two and as busy as she was she still wanted to sit and hold her little brother. So precious! I love this family and love seeing their little ones grow! Congratulations Laura and Mike! You have to major cuties on your hands! 

Happy New Year!

Looking back on 2015 with gratitude and moving forward with excitement!

This past year I was thrilled to be photographing weddings again with some of the most creative and fun couples ever! The falling snow, vagrant buildings, fire trucks, rustic barns, horses, sunsets, and cold winds made for exciting challenges and spectacular photo ops! Below are some wedding and engagement favorites.

I also discovered this year that there is a special place in my heart for photographing cake smashes. I love everything about it! From set up to clean up! I can't help but smile when I see these little ones. It truly feels like a gift to experience their cuteness. Below are some of my favorite cake smash moments. 

I am also grateful to have met and worked with so many amazing clients and fellow wedding professionals who inspired me to take my lighting skills to the next level.  Shooting at sunset has never been more exciting! Below are so more favorite moments from this past year. 

Moving into the new year I am excited to announce that, come fall of 2016, Meadow Lace Photography will have a new studio space for newborn and child portraits! I will be sure to share updates on the remodeling and grand opening here on the blog as well as the Facebook Page

It was truly an honor to be a part of your 2015. Looking forward to another year filled with celebration and exciting new developments! 

 

Andy & Vicky's Engagement

A cozy campfire, walk in the woods, and warm dreamy sunlight! What more could you want to create such a romantic setting for engagement photos!? Maybe a little bow hunting? ;) 

After talking with Vicky about what she and Andy wanted for their session I could not wait to meet them!  Being a photographer herself, she knows how fun it is to have great props to help capture the character and story of a subject. They did an fantastic job of creating the tent and bringing in some meaningful props. Getting to be their photographer for an evening was a real treat!  

Andy and Vicky have a true chemistry and strong friendship that is felt the moment you meet them! I loved seeing the way they enjoyed each other and am so happy that they will soon be celebrating their marriage with family and friends in Seattle! Vicky and Andy it was truly an honor to be your photographer! Wish I could go with you to Seattle for your big day! God bless you two and I hope you have a fantastic hunting season!
