I am a family photographer taking photos in my grand haven studio and on-location in the muskegon, north muskegon, grand haven, holland, and grand rapids areas. I have a few favorite locations I like to have my sessions. Whether you want a beach, farm, field, wooded, or urban style photo session, I have many options for you. I like to start out my family photo sessions by getting a good amount of the posed, smiling, everyone looking at the camera shots and ending with some more creative, fun photos of you and your family interacting together.
Posed newborn photos are done in my grand haven studio. I have many props available for the photo session. Newborn photos include parent and sibling shots. If you are interested in a more relaxed and natural style for your newborn photos please check out my lifestyle newborn option.
Lifestyle is one of my very favorite type of sessions. They take place in the comfort of your own home. If you have a newborn baby, I like to take photos in the babies nursery. I also will be taking them in the living room, master bedroom, and kitchen. Whether you are baking cookies with your kids, playing games at the dinner table, having bubble bath fun, or just hanging out on the couch, I will capture those genuine little moments of your day to day life. I promise you these photos will be treasured the most as your family grows and life changes.
My maternity photos can be done in studio or on-location. A beach, field, or wooded, area are what is often chosen for outdoor maternity sessions. The father of the baby is included in the maternity photos as well as any siblings the new baby may have. If you need some ideas on what to wear during your maternity photo session you can ask me for advice. A long flowy dress tight fitting in the middle photographs beautiflly for maternity photos but is not a necessity. These photos are best done between 34 and 38 weeks.
I love taking photos of children and capturing their individual and unique personalities. I have 3 kids of my own so I know how stressful it can sometimes be to get that perfect picture you always wanted of your child. I am there to make that a little less stressful. I aim for my photo sessions to be upbeat, energetic, and fun. I want your kids to feel like I am a friend they are hanging out with and not just some lady with a camera. Children photo sessions can be done at my grand haven photography studio or at a selected outdoor location of your choice.
