The G Siblings | Holly, Michigan Children Photographer

What a beautiful family this is! Such sweet siblings and I’m fortunate enough to see them at least once every year! 

I’m hoping there are still a few more beach sessions left in my future this summer, but if not, this one is a great way to end the the season!

Just check out these two little cuties! Oh my, their daddy is going to be in trouble in a few short years! 

We had a fun beach session and they had the most adorable outfits. But lets be honest – I think they could have worn paper sacks and been cute!

The M Family | Holly, Michigan Family Photographer

Isn’t this family gorgeous? They came all the way from Australia to have me take their photos!

Ahem … OK, not REALLY, but they were in Michigan visiting family and came to see me too!

The first time I met them was four years ago and Mackenzie was only one! Time sure does have a way of running away with me. Last time I saw Sailor, she was not even walking! Just look at her big grins! Adorbs.

This beautiful family came to see me last week and I know they’ve been waiting patiently for their preview 😉 And I couldn’t wait to get it out to them! The boys are just too adorable for words!

We had a blast – first we explored an old barn, before heading to the beach to look for fish and frogs as well as play on the tire swing. Then mom surprised the boys by pulling out their dress-up box and we even had a surprise swim! What more could you ask out of a photography session?!

Reagan turns 2! | Holly, Michigan Children Photographer

I know it probably seems like I say this every time I do a blog post, but I am in LOVE with this session! The people, place, lighting – everything – came together just right for some beautiful portraits!

I feel so honored to take Reagan’s 2nd year birthday photos – her mom lives almost 3 hours away in Ohio and has made the trip back to see me twice now! Wow. How awesome is that?

It means so much to be able to capture these special moments for families who are more like my friends!

Just check out her cuteness and you’ll see what I mean:

The wedding of Melissa and Matt | Fenton, Michigan Wedding Photographer

Melissa and Matt were married on a beautiful sunny August day in Fenton Township off of Lake Fenton at the Fenton Township Community Center.

The ceremony was held at an intimate location on a small beach, perfect for a fun, summery wedding!

I especially loved their choice of colors – orange and yellow! It really suits both Melissa and Matt’s personalities, which are bright and beautiful. These two didn’t stop having fun from the moment they began their big day. They gave out paper fans and sunglasses to all of their guests and even had miniature beach balls thrown their way as they exited the ceremony. Then they jumped on “General Lee,” a boat that was just waiting to take them for a spin before they headed into their reception.

Brock | Holly, Michigan Children Photographer

This little cutie has stolen my heart since the first time I took his photos several years ago. He is such a sweetie pie and just about the same age as my daughter. I love his personality!

During this session his mom really wanted to capture the essence of the summertime and he definitely has a special fondness for sticks! It was hard to capture any photos without him having one in his hand but we managed 🙂 How adorable is he?
