Meet the Gruppen family. I absolutely loved running around and chasing these four little girls. Seriously … running. It was a total preggo workout. I think I was a sweaty pig when we were done. We met at their home on Lake Macatawa and just had some fun snapping some photos of the bits and pieces of the family! Baby Harlow was quite the model this night as well, so lots of pics of that cute baby. The other three girls are part of one family!!! Yes, they are busy! Summer, Hadley, and Emery. All four of the…Continue Reading >
Probably one of the most exciting parts of being pregnant besides feeling the kicks and wiggles is planning and pulling together the inspiration for the nursery, and then of course putting it all together throughout the months. I’ve definitely had a lot of fun starting to do this and wanted to share some of my inspiration and then as it pulls together, I’ll share some progress photos. The things that are important to me for the nursery is that it is realistic. I’m not going to put things in there that are just for looks. I absolutely hate…Continue Reading >
I had the opportunity to photograph this beautiful senior named Rachel. I had such a great time getting to know her and having lots of fun chats with her and her mother. Senior sessions are always exciting for me because I love to think about the possibilities these young adults have. Such an exciting time in their lives.
I absolutely loved Rachel’s style. I always try to tell my clients to make sure to dress the way you do and show off your personality. So when she came prepared with hats, fun colors, and a shirt with leopards on it…Continue Reading >
WHEW! What a crazy past two weeks it has been! Sorry for the delay in the bump update post, I decided to combine 25 + 26 week into one post. Seeing that week 25 was spent sick at home most of the time … lots of naps. That was rough. Being sick with preggo is definitely NO fun. Well, being sick is no fun, but especially while pregnant. I was really hoping I wasn’t going to get it because I had heard so many people getting it and then sure enough, I woke up super early two mondays ago and…Continue Reading >
I had the opportunity to photograph something a little different several weeks ago. It was so refreshing to work with horses for me obviously, I miss riding mine so bad while pregnant. I know some women ride throughout their pregnancies but I was told to refrain from it, so I guess I can take the year off … but it has been tough. Deb is a woman who always had a vision of helping people with horses and I’m so proud to see her vision become reality. She contacted me in hopes of photographing some ‘details’ and get some shots…Continue Reading >
Happy 24 week of pregnancy to me! The past few weeks I have been consistently been feeling good and pretty much the same. So thankful to be having a great pregnancy … like seriously, I do not take it for granted! I will say, taking these photos is becoming a little bit harder and harder. So we’ll see how long it lasts. I would really like to make it the whole 40 weeks doing them … but I want to make sure I’m having fun with it and it is not a chore. I started doing these posts…Continue Reading >
While going through harddrives, I found some photos I never shared with you all and had to do a post on a fun fall mini trip idea for you guys! Last fall, Matthew and I did a color tour with our cousins and best friends Jenny and Aaron. If you haven’t heard of the tunnel of trees it is definitely a MUST when you’re a Michigander. Its basically a stretch of road that is full of curves and well … a tunnel of trees which in full color is AMAZING. Maybe you’re in need of a short road trip and…Continue Reading >
Oh where to start with this little munchkin. Talk about needing some energy for a session … even though she is my niece, it is still extremely hard photographing a toddler on the move. And boy is Mila on the move!!! She is 16 months here in these photos and what a journey it has been the past 16 + months [pregnancy] with Mila. She has many nicknames, just to name a few … Mila Feel-a, Mater [from the movie cars due to her humungous gap between her teeth], sometimes it is Jack Nicholson … depending on the…Continue Reading >
I could barely believe it when I typed in October. Matthew and I enjoyed a lovely date night last night which involved getting pumpkins together. I didn’t waste anytime when I realized it was October … time for pumpkins!!! We don’t carve them anymore but I love playing with pumpkins and permanent black markers! Maybe a few monograms here and there along with HELLO or WELCOME. Maybe this year, I’ll get crazy this weekend and whip out some paint …
The October goals list is going to be a little bit shorter than normal only because I have this app…Continue Reading >
