{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} quinceañera – 5.4.19 – holland, mi event photographer

Hey there everyone! I’m back again – I know! SO quick this time!

Remember my shoot from two weeks ago? Well, it was time for Lily’s amazing quinceañera! Thankfully, this time around, the weather was cooperating and it was even downright warm enough to walk around without a coat. Hooray! We choose to take a few portraits around Holland before this girl’s stellar party. It was the beginning of tulip time, but, we rocked it O. U. T.

This party has got to be one of the most fun I’ve ever attended. It had everything from choreographed dances, to one of the most delicious cakes I’ve ever eaten. Phew! There was so much going on, but my partner and I were able to capture every little detail – down to that first pair of sparkly gold heels <3

Lily’s is an amazing down to earth beautiful young woman, and it was an honor to photograph her birthday! Happy 15th, and ‘may the 4th be with you!’

Pitcha time!
