Merry Christmas

An early Christmas present, just for you!

I don’t know about you, but this year we were on the ball about getting our Christmas shopping done early.  With the majority of the gifts purchased prior to Thanksgiving (see??) it’s ridiculously difficult to not give them away early!    Our impatience is your gain, however, as Santa is giving you your gift 3 days early!

Ok, well that’s not Santa, but he sure is a lot cuter!  We hope that you will find use for your gift in the coming months, or why not re-gift it?  (Did you know that even Miss Manners said it’s ok to re-gift?  True story!)

We hope that you and your family have a very Happy Christmas and that your New Year is blessed!

With love, from our family to yours,

~Heather & Jason

Newborn Session — Evie

This is the time of year that our outdoor sessions are pretty much over.  Don’t get me wrong, we’ll head outside a couple times a month for those brave souls who want snowy sessions (and they turn out beautifully unique!) but the majority of our work during the winter months is in the studio.  Thankfully, we enjoy working indoors as much as we do outside!

Today, little Evie joined us in the studio.  She looks all sweet and sleepy and cuddly in the portraits below, but don’t let that fool you — she’s a little pistol!  I don’t blame her, of course.  We would get her all cozied up in a pose, flash some bright lights at her and then move her all around again.   Life sure is rough when you’re only three weeks old, isn’t it?  :)

Enjoy!

‘Tis the Season!

Today the children at Eagle Crest Charter Academy celebrated the holiday season!  It’s the last day of school before Christmas Break (can you say crazy kids?) and someone had a brilliant idea.  Instead of the traditional candy feast, they instead served breakfast!  The smell of pancakes and sausage filled the hallways — nice!

Jason and I were talking the day before and thought maybe setting up a mini photo booth might be fun for Abbie’s classroom.  We had already planned to be there to snap a few shots during the party.  We asked her teacher and the idea soon blossomed into including the entire 4th grade.  To say the least, we had a blast.  The kids were a riot, not to mention the teachers.  Here are a few from over 200 pictures we snapped.

Parents, you can download all the pics HERE for free!
(There are over 200 so keep an eye out for your child!)

MERRY CHRISTMAS!


I can’t help but think of the line in the movie “Elf” with Will Ferrell when I see these next two pictures….
“He’s an angry elf!”

Even the teachers got in on the action!

The Drain Family — Holland, MI

Every few years Angie drags Randy in for family portraits, and though he comes kicking and screaming (thankfully, not at us) he still does a great job at showing what a good guy he really is.

We have known the Drain family for quite a few years now.  Angie has watched our youngest, Emma, since she was only a few weeks old, so they have a big place in our hearts.  As a daycare provider,  Angie has cared for many children.  Some of them have become very close and dear to her family (her own adopted kids, so to speak) so she brought them all in for a big group picture– way fun!

 

Even their exchange student from Germany can’t escape the family fun!Thanks for coming in Angie, and thanks for taking such good care of our little one!

Dustin and Jessica

I can never forget just how fortunate we are in our business.  We have the delightful privilege of meeting and working with clients during their happiest times.  Weddings and first children, engagements and reunions and parties, we really get to experience some of the best moments of many people’s lives.

Dustin and Jessica.  Wow, these two are an amazing couple.  They are funny, caring and seriously good looking people (really, I think their plan is to repopulate Holland with gorgeous babies), and we have had the honor of being with them right from their engagement.  I hope you enjoy this little look back over the past few years!

For their engagement pictures, we decided to head out to Tunnel Park in Holland one early morning.  One thing led to another and we were playing in Lake Michigan!  This was a seriously fun engagement shoot!

Before long it was the big day!  Love those shoes!

Now, I’m not usually too prone to being overly sensitive about things.   During their ceremony, while Dustin was professing his love and commitment, I actually started to tear up (yea, this is Jason speaking, not Heather!)  So heartfelt and true was his emotion that I could not help but feel it too.

I already said seriously good looking couple, right?  These two are ridiculously photogenic!

They are truly a perfect match.  Jessica is wild and crazy, Dustin is mellow and mild.  I don’t think it’s a matter of “opposites” but rather, perfect compliments.

Jessica came in for some fun and sassy shots as a gift for Dustin.  While she may look sultry and serious in this one, she was laughing throughout the whole shoot!

What a treat for us!  Not only did we photograph their engagement and wedding, but now….a baby is coming!

Jessica has been one of my favorite people to work with.  She’s so open for new ideas and really let me be creative and have fun with these maternity pictures.

To finish off the maternity session, we decided to bring things around full circle, so we went back out to Tunnel Park for some wonderful outdoor shots by Heather.

Little Dillon.  Beautiful, that’s all I can really say.

I wish I had his hair! Can you believe he was born with it!?  What an awesome little man.

Now that’s one cute little Dill pickle!

Three months old and smiling away!

I absolutely love this!  Owls are in!

I’d say Dillon is shaping up to be just as photogenic as mom and dad.  I can’t wait for the next time we see him, just a few more months, Jessica!
