I understood that every flower created by Him is beautiful, that the brilliance of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not lessen the perfume of the violet or the sweet simplicity of the daisy. I understood that if all the lowly flowers wished to be roses, nature would no longer be enamelled with lovely hues. And so it is in the world of souls, Our lord’s living garden.

― Thérèse de Lisieux


Just by looking out the window you’d think we were still in the middle of winter, but as of March 20th, It’s officially Spring!

When Asher had turned 6 months old, the family not only continued with his “grow with me” sessions, but thought it was the opportune time to also do some portraits for the whole family. The location we decided upon was a state park in North Liberty called Potato Creek. I hadn’t been there in years, but remembered it having a big lake and bike trails. It has a lot more to see than what I remembered, and turned out to be an awesome location. His adorable sister Braelyn was a big helper. It has been a blast to watch Asher grow. I’ve photographed him as a newborn, a 3 month old, and now 6 months. I’ll also be following him all the way to 12 months, so expect two more sessions with this growing family. If you’re interested in a “grow with me” package you can email me at, or fill out the contact form on the bottom of the home page.

The family also wanted to announce some news… their having baby #3!

A blooming orchard in Southwest Michigan seems like the perfect place to spread a quilt out and enjoy and cup of tea or a book. Springhope Farm once again made the perfect location. While the weather was rather chilly and wind brisk, the sun was delightful and the girls were thankful for it’s rays. Blooms this year were a month early so we thought we should take advantage of their beauty even with the chilly temps. Thanks for braving the cool weather girls, you’re beautiful!
