Wow! Shooting Bennett’s senior pictures with Carrie was so much fun! The hour flew by as she proposed so many clever and creative ways to shoot him. My favorite was when she asked Bennett to “smolder” and he had to try and figure that look out! I am very happy with the beautiful pictures we received. Now it’s time to book the whole family for a sitting!

I thought it was a very positive experience, the whole process was very painless and I enjoyed it quite a bit actually. It was fun to do something different and I really liked the urban location for the pictures. Mrs. Chaffer is a very nice lady who is highly professional yet easy going enough where I could do what I wanted. I truly enjoyed myself and I would recommend Mrs. Chaffer to anyone!

I’m really excited about the contest going on over at Chic Critique! I’d be so honored and humbled to have the panel of Celebrity Photographers, from all over, chose my image… WOW! So, how to pick a favorite image? Now, that’s a hard one. This summer I’ve had so many extraordinary opportunities to photograph many beautiful and stunning people, that it’s been hard to choose. So, here is the image I submitted to Chic Critique for their Photography Idol Competition. Oh, how I would love to become their next Celebrity Photographer! You can check out the other great entries here. Stay tuned; I’ll let you  know how the contest is going…


Thank you again so much for doing my senior pictures!!

Your bubbly personalility made it extra special. You truely have an artist eye thanks again!

We had an awesome time at Hannah’s senior photoshoot. You have a great eye for creative shots, and can work with just about any background to get a great picture! You made the photoshoot full of laughter and smiles as well as finding out how small this world truely is. We would recommend you to anyone needing professional pictures because you do a fantastic job. Thanks again and we can’t wait to see the final products of all the pictures!

Ultimate Senior Girl Session in Caledonia, Ada, Grand Rapids, Cascade, Michigan. Natural, funky, bright, cheery, colorful, rustic photography.


CARRIE!!!! I love that picture! You are amazing!

What can I say but WOW? I knew I was going to love you before I even met you, because you were so accomodating and flexible in scheduling the appointment, which was rather complicated because of our crazy schedule! The actual photo-shoot was such a fun experience! Thanks for dodging rain drops and thinking creatively. We completely loved that hour with you, and now I see why all of your clients look so fantastic…. because being with you is so much fun, it shows!
Thanks for making this a great time for Daniel (and Joey and me). You are wonderful!!

Unlike my mother, because I wasn’t involved in any of the scheduling, I had no preconceived notions about what the session would be like. But it was so much fun! You quickly made it very comfortable to be there and it almost seemed like we were just playing around instead of actually trying to get something accomplished, but yet serious enough to get the task at hand done and from what I’ve seen, with excellent results! Thank you for the flexibility with the rain and making it so much fun for all of us! Honestly, it couldn’t have gone much better than I was hoping for.

Carrie Anne was a blast! We first started off with Carrie Anne and stylist Mary Elizabeth helping me sort through the clothes I had brought to get a great look. Then Mary Elizabeth set to work on my hair and face and got me looking amazing for the session. Walking around downtown was so exciting, and Carrie Anne’s great personality helped me relax and have a fun time right away! She had a ton of fun, creative poses for me to try, and with her explaining them, it was super simple. The pictures turned out wonderfully and I am soo happy with them! I’m really glad I went with Carrie Anne and would recommend her to anyone!
