Hannah’s senior portrait session had a little bit of everything: Classic styles, flowering fields, rustic village locations, athletic shots— even the family business. The end result was not only a great set of images of a lovely young lady, but Hannah’s personality captured in keepsake photo art for her family to enjoy for years to come. Thank you, Hannah, for letting me be a part of your senior experience!

Lauren, a trained dancer, was kind enough to bring her ballet pointe shoes and strike some awesome poses as we explored Grand Rapids for her senior portrait session. The results are gorgeous. Thank you, Lauren!

Sydney is one of those kids who seems to do EVERYTHING well — top honors student; skier; color guard and more. Thank you so much for letting me help commemorate your senior year! You’re going to do wonderfully at Michigan State University in the fall!

I hope you’ll pardon a personal post, but I couldn’t be any prouder of this guy. Jonathan (yeah, my kid) is the epitome of character, hard work and talent. This year, Jonathan accomplished his primary goal of finishing his High School forensics career as a State Champion in sales, all while maintaining perfect grades and being great to his family and friends. Yeah, I gush a little, but he’s mine for a little longer, so I get to play the mom card if I want to.

Good luck in the fall at Hope College, and don’t forget to text your mom!

Although my photography studio is located in Grand Rapids, MI, I also meet clients around the country for destination sessions (NYC, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami and more!). Kelsey traveled to New York City with her mom and sister for a “girls’ weekend,” and I was lucky enough to share the day with her shooting all around the city. Kelsey started her day with hair and makeup at The Plaza Hotel, which positioned us perfectly for a walk through Central Park to capture unique and iconic images. After a break for dinner, we reconvened in Times Square for a night-time shoot under the big city lights. Thank you for meeting me in NYC for your senior pictures, Kelsey! What a great memory!
