Peter & Lisa

I was able to meet Peter and Lisa the last time our family took a trip down to Chicago.  They're expecting their first baby in the next month, and I loved getting to do some maternity photos for them.  Lisa was the absolute poster-child for making pregnancy look so good, and I couldn't get enough of how sweet Peter was making sure she had what she needed.  They both were so welcoming inviting me to their beautiful home, and there was even banana bread baking when I got there!  While expecting a baby can change so much, I loved how peaceful their home felt, and I can just imagine what a perfect place it will be for their little boy to come home to. 

Thank you so much for having me, Peter and Lisa.  I am so happy for your growing family!


Get ready, because if you're wondering how wonderfully romantic a walk around your neighborhood can be when you're 7 1/2 months pregnant, you may be just excited about this next sequence as I am.

I'm a Grand Rapids based photographer, still amazed that I get to do what I love on a daily basis. I feel so alive when I'm shooting—It's something that's just in me—and I have loved having the opportunity to share peoples' stories through photos. I have three beautiful children, Henry, Sally, and Frances, with my husband Patrick. We get to do life together, and when get some extra time, we all love to head down to Chicago and explore together. Our life is simple, but built around each other, hoping to show our kids that we can make a difference and impact lives by doing what we love.
