{brandy&alan} just for fun! – 10.3.20 – grand rapids photographer

Weeeeeee! Here we area again! A LOT has happened in the last few years and as much as I hate to say it, I’ve had to hang my camera up for a bit. I’ve done a session here and there (some birth photography too!) but haven’t gotten back into it really since 2017/2018. 2020 Threw some weird curveballs and… well… here we are in the middle of the pandemic and I wanna shoot more again!

Well! Enough is enough. I’m going to try and populate my blog with my first love again – and get myself back out there. I dusted my cameras off and asked some of my favorite people if they wouldn’t mind getting in front of my camera again. And, what timing! Two years after their amazing NOLA wedding (Oh, to travel again, I miss it so!)

So we put our social distancing pants and masks on, and set forth onto an amazing trail in the Allegan Forest, full of spicy plants, fall colors, and sticks and logs. Missed you guys and I’m so excited to feature you here, once again!

{lily} portraits – 4.17.19 – holland, mi portrait photographer

Hello all! Spring is in the air today and I’m so excited to show you my latest shoot! Lily here is having her quinceanera in a few weeks, and we wanted to go and shoot a small mini portrait session beforehand! We met up at Centennial Park in Holland, MI, for a small quick shoot on probably the coldest day in the week (oops!) So we were all a bit cold, but Lily was a trooper!

We moved to a small church down the road to catch some quick shots in front of these gorgeous red doors. Oh, I’m so overjoyed to get back into the swing of shooting and this year should be absolutely amazing! Check in a few weeks to catch this superstar’s amazing quinceanera photos ;D
