This sweet family joined me in South Haven for family portraits at Pilgrim Haven Natural Area! This is one of my favorite spots for family pictures since it features a little forested area and a quaint, rocky little beachfront.
This was for sure the most fun I've ever had as a bystander during a photo session. It was a beautiful afternoon spent with these Kalamazoo College graduates!
It's all kinds of sweet when grown children genuinely love their mama and want to be photographed together! This sweet family is originally from Venezuela and have been living in the area for almost four years. I asked them to join me at Asylum Lake Nature Preserve to capture some photos together.
Sometimes it's so hard to pick just a few preview images that you end up editing a casual dozen instead. Emily, Matt, and Luna seem to always end up on my list of families that feel SO hard to edit down! I've been lucky enough to photograph Luna since she was a little wobbling one year old and now she's a full blown walking, talking child who gets easier and easier to photograph each year.
