I was thrilled to make a connection with the owner of Dreamspun, which is located in downtown Ada. Turns out Korrie and I grew up practically on the same street in northern Michigan! I introduced her to my photography and she introduced me to her darling shop (and props for photo sessions). Here’s a collection of commercial images that Dreamspun is using to promote their Ada store but even more importantly, their Etsy and online store. What a fun session with sweet little girls! And I was able to display my images in her store… check it out!
After a wonderful session with his sister, Emma, we decided to do a complimentary session with Matthew to hang similar photos side by side in the family gathering room. What a photogenic family!
Here’s a simple, yet dramatic, idea for a fireplace mantel. This uses a single large 30″ x 40″ gallery wrap to bring big impact to this intimate family space.
An alternate approach is to go with twin panoramic wraps. Here, we show matching 18″ x 36″ panoramic canvas wraps, hung in a vertical stack. See how this brings more focus to the individual faces?
I love this cozy girl’s room, decked out with a horizontal triptych of canvas wraps. The side canvases are 16″ x 20″, while the center canvas is wider at 24″ x 20″
…and the best for last! Here’s a big-impact display for a lonely wall. Each side canvas is 11″ x 14″, while the center shot of all the kids is 35″ x 40″.
On a beautiful October afternoon I went to the Heynen family home to photograph lots of kids… 6 of them! We had a blast playing in the leaves, running from goats, climbing fences and being kids. Thanks Heynens for making my job so easy!
On a crisp October morning, I had a chance to snap some fun photos of one of the fantastic teachers at Ada Christian School, Kristin Contant, and her beautiful family. What a photogenic bunch!
We’ve had a beautiful stretch of summer-like weather in Grand Rapids! These beautiful photos of Grace show just how some fun prints, colors and hair props make such an impact in photography. Grace you were a trooper!
