Where do I start with Lexi? She is pretty much amazing! I have been photographing her since her high school senior photos, and then her website photos after graduating college (she is an author, you should check her out!) Now on to her wedding! And I need to add that her momma planned this wedding in just 5 weeks, and no one would be able to tell! Like, seriously, it was so beautiful!
The day was lovely, a little hot, but not the sweltering kind it can sometimes be here in Michigan. It was a beautiful sunny day, with a slight breeze. The wedding ceremony and reception were both held at the Cheney Place in downtown Grand Rapids. Absolutely stunning location, full of charm, eclectic and vintage furniture, and creaky original floors. The BEST!
Lexi was so full of joy and love that day, but I have to be honest, she’s like that every day! She exudes warmth and it really shows when she meets people. Lexi was just so, so stunning in her wedding dress and my favorite parts of the day was when she saw herself for the first time with her gown and hair & make-up done. And also when she and Mitch saw each other for the first time. Always catches my heart strings. Mitch wasn’t looking all too bad himself. He was so ready to walk down that isle with his bride!
Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Mitch Schutter!

Life. It gets busy. Kids. They like me to be a part of their life. I like it too.
These are all the reasons I have not done a blog post in FOREVER! I am hoping that can change now. I am hoping to get more time connecting with you. I am hoping to share the beautiful images I have taken. The families, kids, babies, and seniors and way too lovely to not share.
First up is the lovely Brovont family. I met them several years ago when their daughter was just a wee little one. I’ve seen them every year since and this year the Rockford mini sessions are nestled in their little piece of heaven! I couldn’t be happier with the location and with them offering their property to me, and to you!
Thank you to Steve & Kendra for your amazing gift!

Savanna was met entering this world by mom & dad, and big sister Marina. She is one lucky gal to have such a loving family. Marina, during the session, was very happy to hold her baby sister for photos, and told us that she was ready to go! We quickly followed her lead because when a two year old tells you they want photos with their new baby, you listen. 😀
Savanna wanted to not miss the party and stayed awake for most of the beginning of the session, but finally slept so we could finish up her lovely photos.
Welcome to the world, sweet Savanna!

It has been so long, almost a year (yikes!) that I photographed Jameson. I have no good excuse as to why I never blogged it besides that I was busy and never did. So now I am going back through my files and getting back in the blog-game. Here is Jameson!
He was an extraordinarily mellow guy who didn’t like to be nakey. 🙂 We kept him wrapped most of the time and since Easter wasn’t too far away, we did some Easter bunny setups. So adorable!
Thank you, Jameson, for being so cute and cuddly, oh, and amazing!! Your parents are pretty cool, too! 😉
If you are needing some newborn (or maternity, too) photos for yourself. Contact Roxanne at firstname.lastname@example.org

I have a nephew, his name is Cale. He’s pretty awesome. He’s a senior. Here are his photos.
We met a night that was perfect for senior photos. The sun was out, no rain, hardly a cloud to be seen. We decided to do some urban photos and skip the beach so we headed into Grand Rapids for the shoot.
I can’t ask for better family to share this life with and I am proud to call Cale my nephew. Good luck, buddy, after graduation in all that you do!
If you have an upcoming senior, it’s never too soon to book your session. Contact Roxanne at email@example.com
What can I say about the Tackett’s? They are funny. awesome. loving. enjoyable to be around. honest. fun. friendly. loyal. Absolutely everything you’d want in a client, client turned friends. They have some pretty cute kids, too! 🙂
We met at one of my favorite places, a greenhouse. AMAZING! When I own my own piece of land, not only do I need a barn but a greenhouse is on the list as well. My husband jokes that he’s going to need to work two extra years to pay for it. I tell him, “That’s fine. As long as I get my greenhouse!”
Thank you, Tackett Family, for another fun and crazy session. Until next time…

What can I say about the Sanderson Family, except that I love them!!!
I’ve known (A) for about 31 years! We did the math during the photo shoot. And I held (B) when he was just an itty bitty baby, and he’s now 17 and a junior in high school. I just want to ask, why am I so old? LOL Time sure does fly! So the Sanderson’s and I have a lot of history, you could say.
Thank you for allowing me to photograph your family once again. It has been such an amazing pleasure to know you all of these years!

Krystle first contacted me in March of 2017 to inquire about her wedding coming up in June, and when speaking to her it became quite interesting. Krystle and her fiancé, Chris, live in Australia! They both grew up here in Michigan and decided to come back to the States to marry instead of having everyone come across the world. I did tell them that I would have been happy to go to Australia! 😉
I met with the coordinator, and surveyed the grounds of the wedding on a cold and blustery day. I sure was hoping that June would be nicer weather.
I chatted and continued to communicate with Krystle via email and video chat when we could, as Australia is 15 hours ahead of us. We got all details hashed out and were ready for the big day.
I came the night before the wedding to the rehearsal and FINALLY met Krystle & Chris in person, and they were as lovely as I imagined they would be. It was a perfect evening and they were all ready for the next day.
It was the big day! I had never seen a more calm bride & groom before. They were so excited for this day and were really letting everything that was happening sink in to enjoy! I have to say that it was also so nice, after just meeting everyone, to feel so welcomed and loved by them all, right down to grandma and all of the couples’ glorious friends. It was amazing! And to say the day was great is quite an understatement.
Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Chris Lowell!!!
