Pere Marquette holds a special place in Ann's heart and it was the location for their family session that we had back in June. For Ann's mother's day present, the Hindes kids bought their mom a photo session, so the location was of her choice and I think it was beyond perfect! Nothing beats a beautiful evening on lake Michigan with family.Read More
Two 9 Two Photography
It's always a blast photographing Graham because he just keeps getting cuter and cuter! We did a mini session at his Meemaw's house Easter weekend and had a blast! He was cracking up, doing superman poses and touching his toes! Be sure to check out his newborn and his 3 month sessions to see how much he's grown if you haven't already!
Back in August Geoff, myself and our good friend Matt Schmelling (hey Matt!) did a promo shoot for Two 9 Two Media and Andrea & Jason were our models! It worked out perfectly because they are actually engaged and were in need of some photos SO it was just a match made in heaven! I can't speak for Andrea and Jason but we had a blast photographing them and we are so so grateful that they were able and willing to do this shoot with us!
We started off in downtown Grand Rapids, which happened to be the day when food fest was going on but we managed to find some spots that were low key and quiet!
Before we dive into this, a warning... the camera LOVES Andrea. And Jason and Andrea make each other smile and laugh so much, it'll make your heart melt.
After downtown we headed to Grand Haven! With lots of great wooded trails and beautiful beaches, it was the perfect place to take the next half of the shoot! Andrea and Jason had one request for this shoot and it was to have their adorable dog, Stella featured and as dog owners ourselves, we definitely did not say no to that request! Stella is as sweet in person as she is in these photos, and she sits so well! We're jealous..
We had them work on some dancing because not only does it make for adorable photos but depending on how long it's been, it can be pretty funny. ;)
^ this photo is probably one of my favorites. The way Jason is grinning at Andrea while she looks over at the camera is just so sweet. It shows how much he truly adores her.
Last stop! The Grand Haven beach! Andrea. You are truly so stunning. I just cannot get over the photos I got of you. You glow in front of the camera! And Jason, you're a stunner. You rock serious on a whole new level that I've never seen before! ;)
To wrap it up, we handed this lovely couple a bottle of champagne to enjoy and celebrate being engaged!
^^ This is one of my other favorites. While Jason went to go grab his fiancee a blanket because it was getting chilly outside, a flock of seagulls flew behind Andrea and I honestly don't think I've grabbed my camera any faster off my hip. Worth it! :)
Andrea & Jason, thank you. Thank you for going with our crazy plans for this shoot and trekking in the woods, breaking out the heels downtown and everything else in between! We really hope you enjoyed yourselves and love what we're going to put together for you! You two are an amazing example of what love looks like and how to have fun in front of the camera together. It truly was a blast and an honor! We hope your wedding planning is going smoothly! :)
Geoff + Julie
A while back I went over to the Lillibridge house to do Gabe's 6 month photos. Gabe hung out in the grass and Spencer enjoyed some quality time with Geoff and Ryan on the play set. I didn't intend to photograph Spencer but Gabe got fussy a couple times so I went over to see what he was up to. Watching a kid discover and play with the things the earth creates is just really awesome.. and adorable. All in all we had a great session and with the help of Ryan at the end we got some heart melting smiles of of Gabe! :)
So much good stuff coming to the blog and facebook in the coming months! Our newest addition to the family, Graham will be next up along with his big sis Liv who just turned two! We did their session at an apple orchard so you definitely don't want to miss it! :) In the mean time, here is Graham's newborn video that I shot & edited!
We now offer newborn video's like the one above so if you're expecting, don't hesitate to touch base with us! We absolutely loved how this turned out and would love to do more!
