Some of you may or may not know about my gorgeous warehouse studio space in downtown Grand Rapids. It’s a perfect space to host your bridal/baby shower, elopements, birthday parties, yoga class, workshop, or any fun festivity you could dream up. Recently, Evarly turned 1, and she had the cutest birthday party in my studio.

Daphne is a beautiful sweet little rainbow baby, their was much prayer and anticipation to welcome this little girl into the world. She fought hard to fall asleep, she really didn’t want to miss all the fun, but sleep always wins. And once sleep won, she smiled the whole session, melts my heart every time I look through these pics.
It's not often I have the opportunity to photograph a baby at 3 months. It's not that they aren't cute at 3 months, it's just that parents usually want to capture one of those milestone moments like sitting up, crawling, walking, etc. After looking through these photographs, I'm so glad Carlie and Steven chose to do a session at 3 months. It's so amazing how much they change in such a short amount of time. My son was born last May and I'm realizing that his 1 year birthday will be here sooner then later, and then the baby days are over. I'm kicking myself for not getting out the "real camera" more often to photograph these amazing moments (being a photographer does not mean I am constantly taking amazing photo of my own children, though to be honest I should...it was my New Years resolution...) My guess is that Wallace has already changed so much since I was there photographing him for this session. Since Carlie and Steven live on the other side of the state it made much more sense for me to come to their home, feeding/napping schedules of a little one pretty much dictate your schedule at this point. If traveling for your baby session seems like way to much work, consider doing the session in your home. It really gives your images an intimate, cozy feel and plus you can include your fur babies, because after all they are family too!
Over the summer I had the pleasure of hanging out with the Plas family documenting Teddy's milestone of turning one. We had some ice cream, played at park, blew some bubbles, and just enjoyed being a curious, adventurous, happy little one year old boy. I've watched Teddy grow up and photographed him throughout the first year of his life, it's felt like watching my own children grow up. I pulled a few favs from over the last year to see just how much he's grown and changed. He always had such a fun, full of life personality Life is so precious and fleeting, when you have kids you start feeling like you live in fast forward mode. Thank you Plas family for allowing me to document these days. Looking forward to seeing Teddy as a big brother and meeting baby number 2!
