Fall Family Portraits

Although I am a little late in getting this posted I wanted to share this family portrait session from late this fall at a popular field near my house.  This family is the Sayers family and they have three little girls.  We wanted to squeeze this session in before the last of the leaves fell off of the trees.  Although the air was rather chilly we were quite happy that the rain that had been falling for the previous several days seemed to have taken a break just for us.  That is all I was asking for that day-just let the rain hold off for...

Family Portraits In The Field-Grand Rapids, MI

When our friends, Troy and Anne, from Lansing asked if they could drive to Grand Rapids and get their family portraits taken I was super excited.  They are game for anything!  And we would all get to visit and let our kids play together.  But, really, they are willing to let me try anything during their photography sessions.   Just check their prior family session called a “Different Kind of Newborn Session” where we let their newborn baby arrive in a basket from the skies.  Not really, but that is what it kind of looks...

Maternity and Newborn Session, The Before And After

It was a bright sunny day as we all headed out to a field to get some pictures for this mom’s maternity session before her little man made an appearance.  Let me tell you, she did not have too much longer to go.  Her daughters were all too excited to try listening to their soon to be baby brother. I hadn’t completely edited the maternity session when baby Kolston was born.  After having two girls, mom’s only request for the newborn session was that they be boyish!  I am pretty sure he looks like a boy in his first...

What To Wear For Your Photo Session

The best and worst thing about having a photography session is figuring out what to wear.  All of those “rules” you have heard in the past about what not to wear come flying into your head.  You have all heard your mother telling you NOT to wear any prints.  Well, actually it is alright to wear prints.  It may even add some interest to your portrait.  What you don’t want is everyone wearing different prints that do not look well together or that bring the focus of the portrait to the clothes and away from your...
