I love photographing maternity portraits aka the Baby Bump! Its such an exciting and extraordinary time in a family’s life. The waiting and anticipation for the new life. Life is never the same after a precious baby is born.
Its sooo cool when the couple comes up with new and fun ideas to incorporate in a maternity session. These two are sweet friends of mine and they are fun lovin’ and mega sports lovin’! If Jeremy (from Clear Channel Radio- www.westmichiganstar.com) & Kim (http://www.kimbolker.com/home/) aren’t playing sports (think dodge ball) they’re rooting for the Bears and the White Sox! You can catch these two at random Whitecaps games too.
Thanks Jeremy and Kim for a great evening! This is one of my faves! Enjoy the sneak peek!

When I teach my Photography 101 Class, I talk about a variety of lenses and what to use when… I also mention what I think is the ‘best deal out there’ for new photographers. This is a great “normal” lens. Its a 50mm f1.8mm lens. You can usually pick one up for about $150-200 depending on the brand of camera you have. Often you can pick up a fairly new one second-hand for even less. What makes this lens such a great deal? Well- for starters its ‘fast’ which means the aperture opens up to just f1.8. Most lenses that go to f2 or 1.8 etc are several hundred sometimes even thousands of dollars more. A fast ‘zoom’ lens can cost more that $2000. A 50mm is a great lens for portraits because you wont get the distortion a wide angle lens would give you. Because you can open up to f1.8 you can focus on just one small detail in the image and allow the rest of the image to go out of focus. This selective focus allows for some great creative imagery! For more details and explanations- join me in one of my regularly held Photo 101 classes! Just $125 for a 2 hour class which gives you lots of info to better understand your camera and to take great images!

Baby Bradley is Adorable with a capital “A”!! I so enjoy watching them grown from being just a gleam in momma’s eye (love ya Ali!) to a sweet little bundle of boy full of personality!
Enjoy a few of my favorites!
Jeremy and Elizabeth are such a sweet couple! I’m honored to be photographing their wedding in May next year! They will be having a wedding outdoors in Holland, Michigan! So exciting!
Their engagement session was a lot of fun! I love it when we can capture the romance and feeling in a couple’s eyes. Its such a joy to capture them in this exciting stage in their lives! For all you who are getting married soon- don’t forget the engagement portraits. Sometimes people think that its not really important because they will be having lots of wedding pictures soon, but the truth is, you are only engaged once and this time of your life is truly special to look back on and remember. It brings back all kinds of memories even long after the wedding!
When you are planning a grand rapids wedding, often times the ‘little touches’ are overlooked. These touches are usually inexpensive but do require some planning and forethought as well as a little time. Amanda & Mike took time to create some wonderful touches that helped make their wedding unique. See a few here below. They include signs (hand painted!) that make the guests feel comfortable as well as sweet dog collars for their two dogs that joined them during the ceremony. Instead of a traditional guestbook, Mike & Amanda had a large quilt with fabric pens for the guests to sign. How fun is that!?! For more images, check out our blog post below as well as the facebook page! Enjoy!
So Mike and Amanda finally TIED THE KNOT! I was privileged and honored to be there to capture the day for them! Here’s a smattering of their images! Enjoy!
You’ve been asking for it and its finally here! I’ve finally made some room in my very busy summer schedule for some advanced Photo classes! We have 3 of them! They have a very limited class size and will all be extremely hands on! ie: you go home with some awesome images!
One is an advanced camera skills class where we learn how to shoot in manual, look at lighting and learn to ‘see’ the light! This is so much fun and we will have a live model for this as well!
Another- landscape and nature photography skills! Here we will be hiking at the dunes, and will capture some amazing sunrise or sunset pictures and beach/ water images! Be prepared to be up extra early or stay up late for this one!
Want to improve on posing? Our outdoor posing class will show the nuances of posing both men and women and even a family! Live models and outdoor lighting will help you bring it all in! Great way to improve your portfolio!
