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!

Little Elliot is One!

Hard to believe it's already been a year since this little guy arrived! He is such a happy little baby always ready to smile for baby talk. I have loved so much getting to watch him grow and getting to take pictures of his silly big brother and sister. They always made pictures extra fun :) Morgan and Drew you have such a beautiful family. Thank you so much for choosing me to capture your portraits. I adore your kiddos and I hope to see all of you again sometime soon!

Bubbles Of Fun and Turning One!

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! 

Family Portrait Session: The U Family

So excited to share some favorites from last Saturday's portrait session with the U family! 

I absolutely love and admire this family so much! The way they love their children is beautiful!  I loved capturing their loving hugs, seeing how patient they were with each other, and watching their little ones love on mommy and daddy! M & T you are doing a wonderful job raising four little ones! Keep doing what you are doing because your kids are SO sweet! It is wonderful taking portraits for your family! Enjoy looking through your new pictures and have a wonderful time making new memories this Memorial Day Weekend! 

Loved Little One: Newborn Session

Introducing Little Miss H! So loved and so beautiful!

It was so wonderful to meet little Miss H! Just three weeks old and such a little doll! She has an incredible mommy and daddy and three siblings who all love her! So glad we could capture her while she is so small and new! Congratulations "U" family!  So excited to photograph you and all your little ones this spring!  

Welcome to this world Little Miss H!

Introducing Little Miss H, nine days old and perfect as can be!

 She was so sleepy but could not resist peeking at mommy and daddy every now and then when they would hold her.  It was so fun seeing her all dressed up in the outfit her mommy wore as a newborn, and to have her cozied up in blankets with her daddy's childhood books (Bringing tears to her grandma's eyes! So sweet!). She has brought so much excitement to the family being the first grandchild for both sides! Her other loving grandma handcrafted the beautiful doll you see pictured above with meaningful fabrics and heirlooms from the family! 

Congratulations B family! Your little Miss H is simply beautiful! It has been so fun getting to know you all and a real honor to capture the beginnings of your beautiful family of three! God bless you and your new little one! Enjoy all her sweet snuggles! 

Chris & Shannon's Engagement Session

As promised here is more of this beautiful couple engaged to be married next month! 

We had the most perfect morning for pictures! It was so much fun getting this beautiful couple together with their sweet baby girl in all the spring flowers! Their  little one is such a sweetheart and was mesmerized with the camera (or the silly noises I made for her)! This year has been filled with so many new adventures for these two: new jobs, new move, new milestones for their baby girl. So glad I could capture, not only their engagement, but also this beautiful time for them as a new family of three! Looking forward to celebrating their marriage and capturing their beautiful wedding day with all of their family soon!

Happy One Year Birthday Little Miss F!

Happy Birthday to this bright eyed cutie pie! 

Little Miss F is one of the sweetest, most lovable, and beautiful baby girls I know! She is truly adored by everyone who meets her! It's been such a joy watching her grow and yet bittersweet knowing she won't be a chubby little baby for long. I am so glad that I was able to be a part of capturing her one year milestone. I've been looking forward to seeing what she would do with her cake and I did not expect her to request a fork! Ha! Ha! She definitely loved the cake! Compliments to her mom who made the cake and the beautiful ribbon knot garland. Happy birthday little Miss F! We love you! 

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 

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
