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!

Already one!

Wow! This past year went so fast! It truly feels like only last month this little cutie was born. I have loved every minute of picture time her. She is so full of personality, beauty, and happiness!

Thank you Lindsay and Dan for choosing me to capture her first year of life milestones. It has been an honor to watch her grow.  She's one amazing and lovable little girl! Blessings to your sweet family and happy new year!

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!

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!

Brennan & Lisa's Jackson MI Wedding

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! 

Congratulations Brennan & Lisa! It's been so fun getting to know the two of you! Thank you for choosing me to capture your beautiful love story! ~Lindsay

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! 

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
