Jessica {Maternity}

In an effort to get a little catching up done on here, I’m going to be posting from sessions a couple months ago. Like this one. With one of my absolute best friends in the whole wide world. While her sister and I popped out 3 each of our own kiddos we were waiting patiently for Jessica and Ryan to give us a little niece or nephew. We had way too much fun getting these shots!

The Lavender Farm With the {S} Family

Lavender Hill Farm, here in Northern MI is like this hidden little gem in the summer. It is so gorgeous and smells so heavenly. I met this lovely little family there this summer while they were here visiting family.

Cousins + Sisters <3

I have to admit I was a little nervous to photograph 5 little girls under the age of 5. Mostly because photographing my, at the time, one 3 year old daughter proved to be quite the task. These little girls all proved me wrong. These are all so gorgeous and not to mention so very sweet and well behaved. I’ve been honored with photographing them on more than one occasion and hope to continue watching them all grow.

Laila & New Baby Sister Claire

We have had the pleasure of knowing these sweet girls’ parents since before they had children. Now here we are having kiddos pretty close in age, Laila and Olivia are within a couple months of each other, as will be my new little girl and her new little girl! Laila is too sweet and seemed to be very excited to be a big sister and miss Claire slept the afternoon away.

Olivia is 3, So Bittersweet

This belated, but I had to share my baby who turned 3 at the beginning of the summer. I cannot for the life of me figure out where time goes sometimes. I look back even just a year ago and the amount that her personality has bloomed and even how much her hair has grown has me in awe. She can be so unpredictable and I love her even more for it. I LOVE that in the last couple of months she has developed a real liking to having her photo taken, because up until that point she hated it. I could really go on and on, but I will share her in all her glory instead.
