Photo Session for You Baby

I first met his big sister when she was this age and have photographed her over the years.  Now it is his turn.  A photo session just for you baby!  He’s a lovely little smiley baby, photographed with his adoring family in their home.  It has been an honor to continue the relationship with this sweet family.

When is a good time to have  your baby photographed?  Anytime.  Every time.  All the time.  They change and grow so quickly and everything they do is simply amazing.  If you are ready to book a photo session for your own baby, either in your own home or in studio, drop me a note and we can discuss all the options available to you to document your child.

Sweet little man! Love them!

Christmas Card Portraits

I always wonder where the tradition of including a family or child portrait in Christmas cards comes from.  It hasn’t always been like that.  It isn’t something that is done all over the world either.  In fact, there are many countries that find it downright strange and maybe even a bit egotistical.  I don’t know about that.  However, I have grown very accustomed to the new tradition and actually find myself disappointed when my family or friends across the country DON’T have a fun new photograph to share in holiday greetings.  I love seeing all the smiling faces dot my entry during the holidays, especially when my friends and family are scattered so far and wide.  So I am not complaining at all, just wondering how it all started.  Besides, if it weren’t such a popular thing to do then I might miss out on inviting adorable children like this little girl into my studio for her own holiday portrait.  Isn’t she lovely?

A Whole Lot of Cute — Grand Rapids Childrens Portraits

Playful energy.  Sweet smiles.  Great cuddles.  Mesmerizing eyes. And a whole lot of CUTE.  Julia brought it all to our session at the downtown Grand Rapids studio.  I was smitten.

there is nothing better than boys and moms.  Get in the picture moms!

A bit of studio news… The next mini session event with me at the studio will be November 9th and 10th.  The 10th of November will be the last day 2013 sessions will be held with guaranteed Christmas delivery.  Additionally, I have learned over the years of business to limit my portrait sessions booked in the month of December.  So in order to be fully present for my own family (and to shop, and bake….and ummmm, eat, and shop some more) my December portrait calendar will only be open to newborn baby signature sessions.  I will start taking all other commissions again during the 2nd week of January, 2014.

As always, if you are interested in booking in for a portrait session either at the downtown Grand Rapids loft studio or in your own home, please contact me through email at  Thanks!
