little princess

I can not believe my little girl will be four years old in November! She is crazy for very thing princess. I told her this morning that we were going to take some princess pictures and she could wear her dresses outside, she was bouncing off the walls all morning till we went. Had so much fun walking around and exploring the forest.

Al + Carolyn | 40 year renewal

Al and Carolyn celebrated 40 years together! I love the idea of recreating your wedding day and saying vows to each other again. It was such a beautiful ceremony. Moving to hear that even through hard times, memory loss, and struggles that they are still in love and dedicated to each other. Congratulations Al and Carolyn and many more.

mason | newborn photography + midland, mi

Meet Mason! He had the cutest little scowl on his face when I arrived:) This little man did not want to sleep! He stayed awake pretty much the whole session except for a quick snooze in the swing. I think his favorite part was going outside, he stopped fussing as soon as we walked out the door. Thankful it was a beautiful day. Congratulations Travis and Emily, he’s so adorable.
