A DAY IN THE LIFE PHOTO SESSIONS!

What is the difference between a family portrait session and "A Day in the Life" session?

NO POSING. 

I know, that scares most people. A documentary style of their home, kids, the chaos?? It sounds scary. But, really?! Not at all. Don't you WANT to remember this point and time? Don't you WANT to remember what it was like? Don't you want to remember your kid's favorite stuffed animal, that he couldn't go to sleep without it? How he made you read him the same book every night? How he crawled in your lap when you did? The rituals you had at bedtime-  brushing the teeth, singing in the bath, etc. The way he crinkled his nose every time he got in the water? Each little personality brings so many things with it. Don't you want to remember the tiny things that are so big?

Documentary photography is the new family session. It shows you so much more than a smiling face at the camera. It shows REAL life! Real personalities and idiosyncrasies. Real love. This is also an investment for your kiddos. They will want this in the years to come, believe me.

I'm offering 40% off A Day in the Life sessions for newsletter members!

The session has to be at your home, in Grand Rapids. Travel fees would apply outside the GR area.
The session must be between January and March, 2018.

FAMILY FALL FUN

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... ;)

Congratulations Lisa and Jeff!  What a beautiful day in downtown Grand Rapids! This was such an elegant and laid back celebration! Lisa and Jeff met at a construction management class. They were together for two and a half years before Jeff and the kiddos proposed. They bought land for their new house and while taking the kids there to check things out, they all got on their knees and asked, "Will You Marry Us?"

My favorite parts about their day... Definitely the humorous poses that both Jeff and Lisa would surprise me with, making me laugh the whole day. Jeff's face when they entered the reception to celebrate with their nearest and dearest was hysterical.  I loved the closeness of the families. It was a mish mash of little girls with grandmas and grandpas, uncles, aunts... I LOVED that they somehow got The Killer Flamingos to play! How cool was that?! That was a blast from my past, on the east side. I also was bent over laughing at the uncles dancing. The couple at the end of this preview... Their faces! Fearlessly gettin' down! It was hilarious.

Since I gotta give it to amazing women entrepreneurs, please make sure you check out Lisa's shop, https://www.ellembee.com for creative fashion and jewelry finds! 

Best wishes to your wonderful new family! Thank you so much for choosing me to document your story.
