Extended Family Session

I just saw this family last year for an extended family session and I had the privelidge of seeing them again this year. They had a couple of additions since last year and grandma loved the pics so they decided to do it again.



Maternity PICS

Sometimes I just laugh (in my head) at the parents during the sessions. This mama thought her daughter was doing so terrible and I kept assuring her that she was fine and I was getting some good shots. I loved the email I received after the session saying this, “Susan, I got the cd with all the pics and the photos are great! You did an awesome job!” I’m glad they were happy and I’ll see them soon when their new bundle arrives!


6 Month Twins!

Twins are like wildcards. They can both be amazing, or maybe one will, or maybe neither will cooperate. Well, I hit the jackpot with these two! They were amazing the whole time and we captured so many fantastic shots. I hope to see them soon, especially for a double smash the cake birthday session, that would be fun!


More on the Lake Shore

There is nothing better in west Michigan than our beautiful lake shore. This is a family that I’ve worked with for many years. We did some pics inland and then went out to the lake shore for another set. Thanks, it was another great session Stoufer’s!


Lake Shore Extended Family Session

Extended family sessions can be a challenge to photograph, but even more so a challenged to coordinate with all of the families. These families were meeting at the lake shore from all over Michigan to have a fun family day. The forecast didn’t look great and the skies looked even worse on my drive out. Well, we hustled through the pics with just a mist of rain here and there and as I was driving home it started pouring. Thank you Lord for providing great weather for this family. I know they were praying for it!


BFF Session!

These mamas are best friends. Unfortunately, one lives in Michigan and the other out west. Once a year when they get together they try to schedule family photos together. This was a fun combined session. Thanks for including me girls!


Welcome to the World Little Buddy

This little guy was so tiny and looked just like his dad. Another great newborn session with an adorable family. Thanks again!


Another Birthday Girl!

This little one was unlike any that I’ve ever seen. She was the most intense “smash the cake” eater that I’ve ever met. She didn’t do a ton of smiling because she was too focused. She was actually eating the cake. Lots of kids smash it and play with the frosting between her fingers, but not this one, she ATE it and a LOT of it!


Pinterest at it’s Finest!

This is the first time I met this sweet family with their newborn son. The mom was super low key and told me to do whatever I wanted. She did also have a couple Pinterest ideas that she wanted to try as well. The one with dad and his tattoo was something she saw on Pinterest and I thought we captured it perfectly. I was also happy she brought out a few MSU props because I love State and was excited to incorporate the helmet. I loved putting him in it rather than setting it beside him. So fun! 🙂


My Sister had a Baby!

Awe, there’s nothing like the feeling of becoming an aunt again. I had the privilege of visiting my sister when she arrived home from the hospital and staying for several days. It was nice to love on the baby and teach my baby sister everything that I’ve learned with my three girls. Good job sis, she’s completely adorable!
