Otto’s First Birthday

Jul 23, 2016 // LIFESTYLE, PHOTO, PORTRAIT

Earlier this summer my oldest nephew turned one! It’s been so great to be able to watch him grow from a distance, but getting time to actually interact with him in person is so special. I can’t wait to have little conversations with him soon.

Otto’s personality is definitely blooming and he is such a little explorer, always on the move. For his birthday I gave him one of my favorite childhood (and adulthood) books, Harold and the Purple Crayon. Much like Harold, I see Otto as a curious and creative little human who’s always yearning for an adventure (taking after his parents in that one).

Congrats parents on making it a whole year :)

Grandkids in the Garden

Jun 24, 2016 // LIFESTYLE, PHOTO, PORTRAIT

Cute faces: yes. Everyone looking towards the camera at the same time: not so much.

These kids are incredibly expressive and it was super fun getting to hang out with them and their families for a low key backyard garden photo shoot. The love and friendship between siblings and cousins is a special thing, and I’m glad to have been able to capture just a glimpse of that!

LAUREN & DAVE

Jun 11, 2016 // PHOTO, WEDDING

A barn wedding reception is always a fun time; Lauren & Dave’s wedding was no exception. Woldumar Nature Center is one of those dreamy locations that I’ve been able to photograph on multiple occasions. It’s always great to go back.

I love the simplicity of walking through the woods and taking in the beauty of a Michigan forest. These two felt the same way as we walked the paths behind the barn. Lauren & Dave, thanks for letting me be a part of your day!
