chenoa & jeff {engaged!}

A couple weeks ago, I had another chilly winter engagement session scheduled - this time, it was in Grand Rapids! I met Chenoa & Jeff downtown for an outdoor, snowy session. But after a few minutes, we decided that heading inside might be a better option! After a quick location change, we jumped right into the session and had a fabulous time! These are just a few of my favorites from the session...

Chenoa & Jeff, thanks so much for spending the afternoon downtown with me! Can't wait to spend some more time together when it warms up! Enjoy the preview!
One of my favorites!

alexa & nathan {engaged}

I couldn't be more excited to share this post with you. Why? Because it features one of my BEST friends, Alexa and her husband-to-be, Nathan.

I've known Alexa for about 10 years and through life's ups, downs and crazy times, she has proven to be one of the strongest and most loving people I know. I am so honored to be able to stand with her on her wedding day as she joins her life with Nathan. Through the time I have had to get to know him, it is evident that he adores her and cares for her so much!

Since I won't be photographing the wedding, I wanted to at least do an engagement session with them! So a couple weeks ago, Jonathan and I met them in Chicago for a double date and an engagement shoot. Here are jut a few of my favorites!!

I wanted one quick shot in her adorable apartment...
Then we headed downtown to the little park where Nathan proposed!
LOVE this one...

Then we headed indoors to for some book backgrounds!

I really, really love her ring!! It's perfect!

Last shot... all bundled up and ready for dinner! :) So happy that you two are in love and so glad we could spend the day with you!! Mwah!

carli & cameron {kids' session}

I love being an aunt. Unfortunately, I live about two hours away from all my nieces and nephews, so I don't get to spend as much time with them as I would like! That's why, whenever I have the chance to spend time with kids in Grand Rapids, I LOVE it! It helps fill the long-distant Aunt Jenn gaps :) 

I recently spent the morning with two precious children - Carli & Cameron. Carli was a great little model for me - she posed, she danced, she sang - such a fun little girl! Cameron did equally as great modeling, but without the singing and dancing. ;) It was a delight to spend the morning with them and capture some of their young personalities! Here is a preview of our session...

Nothing like ending the session with a favorite book!
