emily | class of 2014 | grand haven, michigan senior photography

It’s not too often I get to photograph just one person for an entire session, but I’ve gotta tell ya – I love it. There’s something really special about getting to dedicate a large portion of time to focus on capturing one person. To specifically set out to tell of what makes them special – their features, their quirks, their passions, just… everything that makes them beautiful individually. It’s a slower process. More talking, more adventuring, more stories. And it’s just so wonderful.

And Emily made for one killer individual to photograph. She adventured me all over the Lake Michigan coast in Grand Haven, shared about her life and her loves, and obviously worked it, because just LOOK at her. Dang.

I really enjoyed getting to commemorate this awesome season that is your final year of high school with you, Emily. You’re a gem, and you’re gonna go amazing places and do amazing things. You’re already well beyond your high school years, m’dear. Can’t wait to see all you do!

Also, I wouldn’t mind if all my senior sessions looked a lot like this one. Just sayin’. :)

Hope you enjoy, y’all. Happy Saturday!

Oh… and what kind of senior session doesn’t start with a little ‘grammin’? ;)

the werner family | grand rapids, michigan family photography

Quick break from wedding-related blogging to share a family session with you all! Yay!

I love family sessions like this one. LOVE them. In the little bit of time I got to spend with these people, I laughed enough for a whole month’s worth of photo sessions. Their love for one another is absolutely contagious, and it made me even more excited for our family to grow sometime, whenever that may be.

Anyway, we laughed, played, read a book, and saw a lot of visits from the snuggle and tickle monsters ;) it was perfect. Such a blessing to be able to capture forever memories like these for such wonderful people.

Thanks for inviting me into some sweet moments with you all, Werner family. You’re the best :)

Love how much these two still completely adore each other and make each other laugh. These sweet kiddos have so much to look up to in their parents.
