  • {L&M} Our Greatest Adventure 10/16/2018 / Matrimony, portrait, wedding

    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!

  • :: Brovont Family :: 10/11/2018 / Family, portrait

    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!

  • Jameson :: 10 days {Zeeland, Michigan premier newborn photographer} 02/14/2018 / Family, Newborn, portrait

    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 photographytheoria@gmail.com

  • Cale :: senior 2018 {Zeeland, Michigan premier senior photographer} 02/05/2018 / portrait, Senior

    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!

  • :: Tackett Family :: {Zeeland, Michigan premier family photographer} 01/31/2018 / Family, portrait

    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…

  • Sanderson Family :: Zeeland, Michigan Premier Family Photographer 01/15/2018 / Family, portrait

    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!

  • Karissa || class of 2018 || ZWHS || Zeeland portrait senior photographer 01/05/2018 / portrait, Senior

    Meet Karissa, senior class of 2018, Zeeland West High School.

    I met Karissa back in August, when it was nice and warm, not this -11* that we’re having right now in Michigan.  This was the first time I met Karissa and while she was nervous being in front of the camera at the beginning of the shoot, she quickly warmed up and did amazing!  She is a natural talent and a natural beauty.  We had such a good night, one with perfected weather and a gorgeous sunset on the lake.  We are so lucky to live so close to an absolutely perfect body of water.  I don’t know what I’d do without Lake Michigan so close!

    Thank you to Karissa for choosing me to be your senior portrait photographer
