taylor & david {engaged!}

Happy Halloween! Whether you love this "holiday" or not, hopefully you can spend some time outside in the beautiful fall weather or enjoy a football game and fall activities and/or share the afternoon with loved ones. Autumn is quickly leaving us, so enjoy it while it is here! Personally, Jonathan and I are spending our first Halloween as newlyweds by carving pumpkins with friends and passing out candy to cute little trick-or-treaters... if we don't eat the bowl of candy before 6pm ;)

And in lieu of this day, here is a little autumn treat for my readers... an engagement session :) Taylor and David are one of my fabulous 2011 couples. We were able to spend some time on her dad's property a couple weeks ago celebrating their love and enjoying the amazing fall colors. Along for the afternoon was their beautiful daughter, Annabelle - adding a little extra delight to the session!


Meet little miss Annabelle...

lindsey & johnrob {engaged!}

As the wedding season slows down (don't worry, there are a few more to blog and a few more to shoot!) the senior sessions & engagement sessions have filled up my schedule... and I can't complain! I've been able to spend lots of time over the past few weeks with new faces and old acquaintances celebrating life and love. Lindsey & JohnRob fit the second label. I've known these two for a while now and have been able to watch their love flourish from afar. The time has come for them to plan their own wedding starting with a fall engagement session in Holland, MI where they are finishing their final months of college. Here are a few favorites from our evening together...


We traveled over to the lakeshore for a few snapshots of the location that JohnRob proposed... a quiet lakeshore park where they have spent many dates together!

josh {senior 2011}

If you've been following the blog for a while, you know how much I have come to love West Michigan. It's true... I love it... from the thriving, artful city of Grand Rapids, to the crashing waves of the lakeshore... it's pretty wonderful. However, it is also no secret that I am a hometown girl... and I love every chance I have to be back on the east side of the mitten to spend time with family, friends and eat at a Coney Island! So when Josh contacted me about wanting to do his session in downtown Detroit, I was thrilled! Josh loves the life and potential that the city of Detroit possesses. We had a great time hanging out at some of the city's key spots and I loved the way this session turned out. Thanks for letting me explore the city with you, Josh! I hope you enjoy the preview...

emma {senior 2011}

I have loved having the opportunity to spend time with so many great seniors this season... and Emma is one of them! She is so sweet! We spent the afternoon walking around the apple orchard and grabbing some beautiful portraits as the sun started to set. A perfect fall session and a perfect kickoff to her last year of high school!
