Playdate Marathon! {My Favorite Things}

UPDATE — Mini-Sessions are FULL

It’s that time of year again…the weather is getting warmer, the tourists are pouring into town (it’s nearly Tulip Time!) and summer is only a hop, skip and a jump away!  Sounds like the perfect time for a Playdate Marathon Session!

“….these are a few of my favorite things!”

Our youngest, Emma, is absolutely in love with her two blankets.  There’s Tigger (obviously) and then there’s “Gramma On”.  Jason’s grandmother (Von) made Emma this blue blanket and it’s hands down her favorite (c’mon — she even named it after her, how cute is that?).  These blankets are a must at bed time, and whenever she is tired or stressed out.  These two blankets are Emma’s favorite things.

What is your child’s favorite thing?  Is there a special blanket, a stuffed animal or toy?  Schedule your Playdate session and bring that “favorite thing” to incorporate it into the session.    Hope to see you there!

Out of the Office!

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that we will not be in the studio from Saturday,  April 21st until Thursday, April 26th while we are shooting on assignment in Florida.

We are unsure of our access to the internet and cell service, so if you try to contact us during this time we ask please for your patience.  We will get back to you as soon as possible!

We will also do our best to bring back some warmer weather to Michigan 😉

See you next week!

Boulder Ridge and the Reptile Guy

Last summer, Heather told me about a “cool new zoo,” that she had just heard about.  She suggested we take the kids out to check it out.  I agreed, and I am so glad we did!  The place is Boulder Ridge Wild Animal Park, in Alto.  It was about a 30 minute drive for us but worth every minute!  This is like a petting zoo mixed with an exotic animal park, where you can really get close to the animals!

We had so much fun checking out the awesome animals, and photographing them as we went.  I was able to get up close and personal with the Ring-Tailed Lemurs and Serval Cats, thanks to one of our new friends, Rick the Reptile Guy.

They have an awesome parakeet enclosure where the birds will actually come perch right on you to eat birdfeed off a Popsicle stick, so cool!

After having a blast out at Boulder Ridge, we kept in touch with Rick and he came down to the studio.  He didn’t come alone though!  Enter the giant Monitor and 16 foot Reticulated Python!

While the Python behaved for Rick, I’m quite sure she was trying to kill me!  I guess that’s why he’s the Reptile Guy and not me!

Check out our awesomely brave daughter, Abigail!

3rd Annual Easter Bunny Fundraiser!

This is why I love my job!

I’m still in shock by the turnout we saw yesterday!  We saw 61 children in the studio and raised a record amount of donations for the Holland Community Action House.    You all were AMAZING!

The free 5×7’s have been ordered and those who participated should have received an email this morning with how to view all the images online.  (Didn’t receive it?  Send us an email and let us know– I had several bounce back.)  You can also order additional prints online or in studio.  PLUS, there is still time to get prints in for Easter!  If you’d like to order in studio, please call ahead to schedule an appointment.

For those of you who couldn’t make it, we hope to see you next year!  Here’s a preview of some of my favorite bunny pictures this year.

First, meet Floppy, our star of the day!

Not EVERYONE loved the bunny 🙁
