I’m not going to lie, this photo might have had a little editing magic performed on it. Sometimes feet are just too far apart or turned a little awkward. But, no one will ever know (until now) because it looks flawless and just like the photo the mother requested. That hat and tie combo was completely adorable too!
Photographing friends is fun, but also adds a little bit of pressure. This family is so cute though that I knew I’d nail the pics! How adorable is the little boy?! I can’t get over his sweet smile. He was probably one of the most cooperative 3 year olds that I’ve ever worked with! Thanks again Annie for allowing me to capture these moments for your family!
Sometimes when the children are grown and already photogenic, you have to add a little fun to get a better shot. This girl was a self proclaimed non-hugger. So, I made her dad hug her and got this amazing smile. I also had her piggy back with him, which she probably had not done it years. The splashing was obviously saved for the end, but those are always fun shots to capture.
If you follow me on Facebook or here on my website, you will know that I offer a variety of mini sessions throughout the year. Living in west Michigan, what we refer to as “The Big Lake,” (Lake Michigan) is only about 45 minutes away and is absolutely stunning. These sessions always fill very quickly for me. This was my first session from last weekend. I knew this little guy would give me a run for my money, but the pics turned out great and I already received a thank you from the mother saying she loved them! It is always a great feeling for me to hear wonderful feedback.
I love it when sessions have a story. This girl was on vacation at her lake home and said she had to have her engagement session done there. It had so many great memories for her and she wanted the memories to continue with her next chapter in her life. I loved all the pics from this session, but here are a few of my favorites. Yes, they did end it with jumping into the lake at sunset. How gorgeous is that view?!
This was a first for me! I have never attended or photographed a Quinceanera before. They may as well have called it a wedding though because it was amazing! The dress and the “wedding party” were all decked out and it was beautiful. What a special privilege for this beautiful 15 year old to have such a wonderful party with friends and family!
