I met with Kate and Matt at Grand Park for Kate’s maternity session.  She is six months along and looking absolutely beautiful.  After speaking with Kate and her husband, Matt, it was clear that they are both super excited that their first child will be a boy!  Even though Matt was a little shy for the camera, he was so great.  Watching him be so attentive to his wife brings joy to my heart that their newborn son will be so loved and protected.   Our session was a little chilly and drizzly that day but rain or shine, I always feel honored and privleged to be a part of someone’s new beginnings especially when it’s as special as a growing baby waiting to join the world.

Kate and Matt, I can’t wait to meet this little guy and congratulations to you both!!

xoxo

I have been very fortunate to have wonderful neighbors since I’ve moved to the north side of town 6 years ago.  Geoff and Gina have been no exception.  They are fun loving people whose large family keeps them on their toes.  Don’t get me wrong.  They maybe busy people but they make time for themselves and know how to let their hair down.  Every summer is has been always been a great opportunity to hang out in the back yard until the wee hours of the night playing “Cornhole”.  Of course my husband has been mostly an active player than myself.  I’m usually a side liner always provoking other activity.

When I mentioned that Geoff and Gina have a large family, I wasn’t kidding.  Between the both of them they have 6 kids!!  Yeah, I said it 6 kids!!!  Doesn’t Gina look amazing?!!  Of course she didn’t have all six children but she  still looks fantastic.  They are no Jon and Kate but more like Brady Bunch but with one boy, and amazingly they all get along pretty well.  Meeting with them on Sunday was nothing short of entertaining.  It was great for the kids to just be themselves and several times I caught Geoff questioning himself like, “Why did I bring them here?”  No worries, Geoff.  They were great!!  I love you guys and I’m so grateful to have you as neighbors.

Jay, Jenny and Ava came in this evening for their first family session.  What a beautiful family they are.  Ava was quite the chatty one this evening but she only made for good entertainment as I was trying to get my shots of her.  I don’t think I need to go into how much I love this family but I will say I just love them to pieces.  icon smile Vander Boon Family

Wednesday evening was spent with the Stickney family in Aman Park of Allendale.  It was my first time coming to this park and there was a lot of really neat areas to go here.  If you are looking for something very natural and heavily wooded, this is a great park.  There lots of different hiking trails and off trails to scope out, however, the Stickney’s and I didn’t wonder far.  They included there lovely little girl, Chessy, who was much more interested in playing in the creek then having her picture taken, but we managed to get a few pictures of her here and there.

What I love about the Stickney family is that they are down to earth people who enjoy the outdoors, they love animals, and they enjoy so much about being close to each other.  After spending time with them Wednesday night, I would agree that it shows.  And might I add I cannot get over Ben’s adorable smile.

Dale, Pat, Sam, Shirley, and I headed to Johnson Park for their family portait session.  It was a perfect morning to be outside to photograph and for Pat’s three generations of women in her family, Shirley, Patricia, and Samantha.
