Circus Birthday Sneak Peek

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! 

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. 

 

 

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 

2015 Senior Snow Session

Congratulations "J" on your senior year! 

So grateful for the beautiful snow we had! We waited a whole month for it and it was so worth it!  "J" did so great braving the cold! We took pictures at the park where his team trains for Cross Country and it was perfect with all its bridges and natural beauty.  A special thanks to his mom for bringing hot chocolate (you're amazing!)!  God bless you "J" as you begin the next chapter of your life, being true to who you are, and creating many wonderful new friendships and memories along the way! 

Snowy Engagement

Getting to photograph these two in the falling snow was so exciting!

This beautiful couple definitely enjoy each other and it was so awesome to see how much they made each other laugh! A & A, it was so fun taking pictures of the two of you and I am so looking forward to capturing all the fun on your wedding day! 

Home For The Holidays

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 

Fall Family At The Armory

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 

Welcome To This World

Welcome to this world little D! You are one beautiful and precious little guy! 

Katie and Justin, he is so so so perfect! I can tell your hearts have tripled in size with love for him! It fills me with so much joy to see the two of you with your very own little guy! You are such loving, caring, thoughtful, and generous people and you already are such loving and attentive parents! I love you very much and I look forward to seeing little D again soon! 

Before The Summer Ends

The evening with Kacey and her mom was absolutely perfect! She is such a lovely young woman and it was so much fun picking the perfect spots and poses for her Senior Remake Session. The soft sunlight and the fresh scent of the lavender and mint growing around us made for such a cool end of the summer experience! Kacey you and your mom are so cute together and I am very glad to have been able to spend more time with the two of you and to help you create the senior portraits you've always wanted!

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!

I am so happy for you Tina and Justin! You are such a friendly, hardworking, and kind couple and I am so grateful that I have had the pleasure of getting to know you both! This world needs more people like you! You have such an amazing little guy on your hands and I look forward to seeing how he grows!
