‘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!)


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!

Olivia — A Playdate Session

We first met Livy as a newborn.  She had a twinkle in her eye that  I couldn’t really describe.  We see A LOT of babies in the studio and she was different.  At her 6 month session, she was pulling herself to standing already and crawling (actually she had started this a few weeks earlier).  This little one is smart as a tack.  She said her first words at 9 months (“tow truck” — her dad owns Tim’s Towing, so can you blame her??) and then talking really well at around 14 months old.   Her mom posted on Facebook a few weeks ago that Livy was remembering being inside her mom’s belly.  If it were any other kid I’d say, “Yeah, whatever!”  but this is Livy we’re talking about.   So, I don’t know….maybe she does remember?

Livy’s mom brought their dog Kenzie along with them for the shoot.   The browns and whites….I’m in love with this image.

And finally, a quick couple shots in the studio to show off the dress that her mom wore when she was 3 years old.
