Mothers have a magical touch.  Nothing is more powerful, healing or calming than the unconditional love that comes from our mothers.  Whether you know everything about your mother or not, there are sacrifices you aren’t aware of that your mother has done for you to have a better life – and she isn’t willing to stop anytime soon.  Your mother is special to you.  No one else will understand the exact importance your mother is to you but hopefully share the same feelings towards their own mother.  This Mother’s Day give your mother a gift that is truly timeless…a captured moment of her beauty.  4814 Grand Rapids Beauty Photography 106 This Is For Our Moms 4814 Grand Rapids Beauty Photography 101 This Is For Our Moms

Our mother’s beauty radiates from the inner depth of her heart and soul.  Her beauty should not just be shown through her love for her family but also for herself.  This mother’s day treat your mother to a beauty session.  1414Brown 107 This Is For Our Moms1414Brown 120 This Is For Our Moms

She deserves to be pampered by having her hair and make up professionally done to shine for the camera.  It is a wonderful sentiment to feel extra special for a day, while capturing those moments on camera that allow the day to last forever.  The added bonus is that the beauty your mother felt that day will be because of you – something she will never forget.

There is also the option of doing a session together – a mother-daughter duo – can expand the experience to greater heights.  Just the gesture alone to your mother will mean more to her than you can image.  Her happiness alone will make your heart feel her magic.  True happiness is seeing our mothers smile.  4415AKDT 101 This Is For Our Moms 4415AKDT 121 This Is For Our Moms

We are our parents’ greatest gifts in their lives.  They are beyond deserving of the world, so show your mother how they mean the world to you by gifting them something that will show the world the best version of themselves – a beautiful picture, of a beautiful woman, to shine to the end of time.


Remember your mothers on May 10th!  Show her how much you care!  Book her appointment today.

Whether you think it is fair or not, how you present yourself is very important, especially in the professional setting.  It affects how others perceive your intelligence, education and capabilities.  From the very first glance, it can make or break whatever follows.  Leading with the right foot, is your most important asset and tool to help grow your business, gain quick respect or keep good rapport in the business world with clients and colleagues.

This standard isn’t only apparent when meeting someone, but also with how you present yourself to others through advertising materials.  In this day in age, just a name on a business card is almost something out dated.  We are living in a more technological driven society where visuals are everything.  From Business Websites, to Billboards, to Professional groups like, LinkedIn; images are thrown into our faces daily.  All of these forms of advertisement, most likely have a face or at the very least a visual of some kind attached to it.  It is better to have more than just a word to remember something by, the most attachments you can create to a brand the better…so back to those business cards.  It is very common for business cards to have a picture on them and your LinkedIn profile to not have a picture you would also have as your main profile picture on Facebook.

Your career is your lifeline and that lifeline deserves the best representation of you…a professional headshot.  Leave the iPhone photos for facebook, we can all tell it was a selfie with bathroom lighting and attempted from 20 different angels.  Be as professional with your career as the face you want to lead you, getting a professional headshot is one of the best things you can do for your professional outlook.  They say a picture tells a thousand words.  You wouldn’t want one of those words to be negative now would you?

When mom, Kate, and daughter, Tori, come to Grand Rapids beauty photography studio for a makeover for a super sweet photo session.  Beauty sessions are great for young women like Tori and perfect to share with moms like Kate.  It makes for a great bonding experience between mom and daughter because they both get pampered together and see the transformations take place.  I am honored and happy these two beauties could be here and in front of my camera.

On August 29th, 2009, Gretchen and Ryan exchanged personal vows in Williamsburg, MI at the Turtle Creek Casino and Hotel.  Gretchen and Ryan come from Pickney, MI and their plans were to hold their ceremony outdoors on Turtle Creek’s balcony.   Due to the uncooperative weather, their ceremony moved indoors and nonetheless, they remained to have a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony.

Gretchen looked absolutely stunning her wedding gown.  It was so simple and elegant and I could tell just fit her personality.  Both sisters were her maid of honor and both shared funny stories of her growing up.  As for both brothers of the Groom and both Best Men, they shared their undying love towards Ryan.  But the tears didn’t well up for me until Gretchen’s dad stood up to speak.   It just melts my heart when I hear a parent express their unconditional love towards their child especially when it’s from a father to her daughter.  Gretchen’s oldest sister later sang for the couple’s first dance.  Might I say, what a talent and so very sentimental!!  She also  sang another song for both parents of the couple.

What an amazing day as well as evening that I had the honor and privilege to be a part of.
