Meet little Milo just six days new in these pictures all snuggled up with his mommy, big brother, and daddy. He is such a good baby and seeing him with big brother just melted my heart! There were so many sweet moments with the two of them, that I had a hard time choosing just one for this post. I will probably post more of them on the Facebook page so check in there for more cute lovable moments. Kim and Shawn thank you so much for having me over to capture these new moments of your beautiful family of four. Your boys are so adorable! Congratulations and I can't wait to send you the rest!
A few favorites from last Saturday's family portraits. She is such a little cutie! She was a serious explorer of the woods and loved eating the apples I brought, but we caught a few smiles in that gorgeous morning light. So great seeing your beautiful family Matt and Sara!
Here's someone cute to brighten your day! This little autumn cutie has hit her 9 month milestone and will be a year in December. I can't believe how fast the year has gone! She's the happiest little girl I know and is now so curious and crawling everywhere. I just can't help but share her adorableness!
Oh my goodness! Aren't they just beautiful?! These two little dolls came in for a quick visit the other day for their 6 month milestone and I was so glad we got some happy smiley faces. They sure do like when mommy talks baby talk to them and that's all it took for their smiles :) Thank you Rachel for bringing the girls in to the studio! It was fun getting hold them and see how much they love their mama!
Hope these baby blue eyes and big smile make your day! Isn't he the cutest!?! This little love turns one very soon and already he knows how to enjoy a birthday cake and rock a cute bow tie! Shelby and Jason, your kids are SOOOO adorable! Can't wait to share the rest of the pictures with you soon!
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!
Little Miss Anna is such a perfect and sweet little beauty! Here are just a few from her session today.
Sarah and Patrick's day was absolutely stunning, but what you must know about these two, is that whatever they do they do whole heartedly! Sarah in my book wins bride of the year for making her own wedding cake (blueberry and thyme cake with lemon curd filling, and butter cream frosting) and sewing dresses for their daughter and all the little flower girls. Together they even home brewed their own pale ale for their guests! This all being done for their Michigan wedding while living in New York!
These two have been in love for quite some time and as the ceremony began you could already tell how much the two families had already become one. The girls carried bouquets filled with the lovely scent of sage and the flower girls carried baskets with rosemary and lavender. The weather was perfect and everything looked, felt, and even smelled beautiful!
Following the ceremony guests enjoyed cocktails (created by the bride & groom), hors d'oeuvres, and a family style dinner catered by Katherine's Catering. Everyone enjoyed dancing while the sun set over the lake and the celebration concluded with a large group photo and bouquet toss! It was an absolute pleasure getting to spend the day with this couple and their kind, generous, and sincerely cool family and friends.
Congratulations to you Sarah and Patrick! You two are amazingly talented and you and your family are such beautiful people inside and out!
A huge thank you to Jennifer Buehrer and her team for their incredible coordinating of the ceremony at the Hillsdale Arboretum and complete set up of the lake house reception. You all made the vision come alive! And a special thanks to my wonderful friend and assistant Erica McIntosh for the beautiful photos you take. And to Jennifer Buehrer again for the untouched reception and cocktail hour shots you were able to sneak in before the party started! You are both so amazing to work with! We make a great team!

Just nine days new and absolutely gorgeous! Hope this sweet little face brightens up your day. Congratulations Erin and Austin! She is so perfect in every way. My heart is so happy knowing how much she is loved. Enjoy all her snuggles and God bless your new little family! ~Lindsay
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!
Cuteness! Cuteness! Cuteness!
Yesterday these little ones simply stole my heart! This family is so sweet and loving together and I just loved watching how Larissa and Aaron truly enjoy and adore their kids. Just looking back at these I can't help but smile. Aaron and Larissa I am so grateful to have met your sweet family. It was a sincere pleasure to capture these moments for you. Take care and blessings as you send your little J off to Kindergarten!
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!
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!
Happy birthday to little Miss E who turned one this month!
Isn't she such a doll? Her little get up and sweet brown eyes are almost too much to handle! I was so impressed with how great of a walker she already has become! Her mom and I were very excited preparing and planning for her pictures and could not wait to see what she would do! And although she had a little bout of teething that day and the horsey was a little too intimidating, she was definitely happy with the cake! Major thanks to the beautiful artistic skills of Beth from Red Barn Bakery! And a big thanks to Shelly for choosing me to help capture her one year milestone! I hope to capture more memories for you and look forward to watching her grow through the years!
I simply adore families who laugh, love, and play together! And the Pastor family is definitely one of these families!
Getting to see this family and to watch their little ones grow through the years is such a treat! The multi colored brick wall was a super lucky find and their outfits could not have been more perfect for it! So grateful for the beautiful weather and fun we had!
When I arrived at our meeting spot their kiddos were all ready for the camera with lots of adorable poses! They had fun playing copycat with daddy, pretending to be the Incredible Hulk, and showing me how high far they can jump (see below)! There were so many hilarious silly kid poses I couldn't include them all in this post! And I have to say my face almost hurt from smiling while I was editing!
Pastor family it was such a pleasure getting to see you all again and I hope you have so much fun adorning your walls with new family photos! Take care, enjoy the beautiful autumn season, and I hope to see you all again sometime soon!
Absolutely gushing over this sweet little baby boy!
I always enjoy collaborating with clients and hearing the ideas they have for pictures! Amy and Ryan had so many fun ideas and beautiful family heirlooms to work with I couldn't wait for picture day! It was so fun getting to capture their sweet sleepy guy with his Great Grandfather's purple heart and WWII military medals and his daddy's baseball jersey and mitt! This family was so enjoyable to hang out with! Even their dog was amazingly chill and friendly!
There is nothing so sweet as a newborn baby! I hope this little guy brings a warm smile to your day! Cause he is crazy cute! Congratulations Ryan and Amy! You are truly blessed! Thanks again for letting me a part of capturing this wonderful moment for your family!
I was privileged to meet this precious little love today! He was such a wonderful sleeper and there is so much adorableness to share! Looking forward to sharing more from his newborn session soon! Here are just a couple until then!
As promised, more of this beautiful family on the blog tonight!
I can't say enough how much I enjoyed capturing memories for this beautiful family! Every year they get together for their vacation and you can just tell they have such a great family bond! So glad that we could make portraits happen and that we had the most beautiful evening at the park! Spink family I hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer and enjoy picking out photos for your Christmas cards! Loved meeting you all! I hope to take pictures for you again sometime! Take care and God bless!
