I had a great session last night. About a month ago I had a big wedding to shoot and I needed help, I needed help on the cheap. I enlisted my neighbor to help me out, in turn, she got a sweet deal on a family session. If you have looked at my work, these faces will look familiar to you. While they may look familiar to you, they mean so much more to me. I get to see these faces every other day. They play with my daughters, they make me say "Ok now, it's getting a little loud in here, why don't you head on outside." They make my heart melt at their kindness. They make me laugh. They make me laugh a lot. They bring me goodies their mama baked. They sing their hearts out. They love to dance. They love to put on a show. They love to plan and debate the plans. They have amazing tender hearts. One loves to read and teach. One loves to dazzle you. One loves to seek solitude when it all gets to be too much with the neighborhood kids. One loves to be so silly that even she cracks herself up.
Most of all these two are sisters. They love and care for each other deeply. I love to watch how one leads and the other follows. I love to watch how that changes and they innately know who needs to be in charge of what.

So I've been very blessed this summer to be busy. It's been a month since my last post. I've shot some weddings, well let's be honest here, I've shot a lot of weddings. Families have invited me to share in their proudest moments and milestones. Whether it was their kids first steps, first birthday, anticipation of senior year or the big "I do." I am so very thankful for these experiences.
I have also been working on the website. A lot of hard work and effort has gone into this. It is now finished and I'm ready to celebrate. I want to give away one family session. A value of $150.
The rules are simple...
1. You must live in Grand Rapids or the surrounding area (25 mile radius) or be willing to travel to me.
2. To enter, contact me through my website contact page.
3. I will put all of the names in a hat and my son Byron will pick one winner.
4. Be willing to have a fun evening.
Please visit to enter.
I am so thankful for all of you!
