Black Friday Deals with a Mission | Grand Rapids Birth Photographer

Snag my last openings for winter births, milk baths, and in-home sessions with these Black Friday Deals! I only have a few spots remaining this winter and they are filling up quickly. 

The best part of the deal? Not only are you saving money, but the amount you save will be donated to Shiphrah Birthing Home in the Philippines.

Annie and Arie's Floral Milk Bath | Grand Rapids Baby Photographer

I can't get enough of this session. I burst into tears multiples times while editing these photos. Maybe that's because I've known Annie so long and was so full of joy to hear her birth story and spend time with her and little Arie. It might also be because of the anticipation for my own little one. I'm 16 weeks pregnant, emotions are high, and my heart is so full.

Laura and Her Littles | Grand Rapids Family Photographer

Laura was my first and favorite babysitter growing up. Her parents are close friends of mine, and she got lots of practice mothering my little sister and me while we grew up. Now, to witness her as a mother to her own precious kiddos is such a joy. She and her husband recently moved back to Michigan (!!!) and we took some Mommy & Me photos at Laura's parents house. Their house is full of memories from Laura's childhood (and mine!) and now will hold memories of her children's young years. I'm so happy to present some glimpses of this beautiful family! And I cannot get over that copper-red hair!

At Home with Asher | Grand Rapids Family Photographer

We met a wonderful couple when we first moved to the Philippines, but sadly (for us) they moved back to the US shortly after we met. Towards the end of our time living in SE Asia, they came back for an extended visit and I had the pleasure of photographing them with their 6-month old cutie, Asher. We just hung out at the house for the afternoon, and I photographed some of their routines and time spent together. I love documentary photography like this - it's so real!! And this family is stinkin' adorable, so that helps too. :)
