Grand Rapids, MI

The Bumgardner Family! My lovely gal pal, Kathryn, was looking for the shiny-happy-faces-Christmas- card, but I just couldn't stop there. While we were waiting for pizza and wine, we headed out to the park for a brief-and cold!- very, very mini-session, before the dark settled in.

November family time is so warming, with the leaves, brisk fall nights, blankets, and red noses! This family is the cutest, but also always hilarious. Always animated, I am always entertained at the Bumgardner house!

Thanks for dinner and the vino, friend... ;)

Family session, Dequindre Cut

What a great big happy family, these Walleys, Lohrers, and Tasiellis... We had an awesome sunny day to trek around the bike path. 

So, Rachelle and I are close friends and have been for years. What I find hilarious, is that when I "met" her folks (we had been on volleyball teams and other things during school, but that's always chaos, so this was an actual meeting years ago), the first thing her dad asked me was, "Were you at that party at my house that my girls threw in high school?" Ha ha!!! "No, sir, I was not."

I always find them hilarious and warm. They are a good group. Thanks for dinner on the water!!

Enjoy your preview...


Here is another documentation of the lovely Zick family!!! I love these guys. So happy, always stylish, and fun. I have been lucky to capture this family for a number of years- through Maggie and Dave's wedding, birthdays, newborn sessions, and more... I am so grateful to continue with this mini session shoot for Mama's Day!
