A super SPECIAL delivery

Amazing. Beautiful. Inspiring. There are so many adjectives I could use to describe this beautiful night, just over a week ago, but I’ll try to do it in a short(ish) story. A few weeks ago I blogged some lovely maternity photos of my dear friends Amy & Jeff, with the even bigger anticipation of knowing […]

2014 Senior wrap-up

My 2014 Senior season was ABSOLUTELY amazing. I loved every single session with the girls, and had fun discovering their personalities, finding ways to celebrate who they are and what they love. I got to have lovely coffee discussions, shopping trips, and dreaming up great locations & props to give everyone something unique. Each and […]

Amy & Jack – a beautiful fall wedding

This weekend marks the 2nd 2014 wedding for lizzie photo – so it’s only fitting I work on wrapping up blog posts on 2013 weddings, and oh do we still have a few special ones to share. Amy & Jack’s November wedding was one of those. Now, I don’t just say this because their reception […]

Lauren & Brad’s snowy engagement session

If you are going to have a wintry wonderland of a year, you might as well make the most of it, right? Well, for these outdoor adventurers, tromping through feet of snow in the woods seemed to hardly be a challenge. (For this pregnant woman with snowpants that don’t even zip up, well, it was […]

Bellies & Babies Abound – OH MY!

Well, 2014 is shaping up to be an eventful year for former brides of Lizzie Photo. As excited as I was for their wedding days & to watch their marriages start off, I’m even more excited that they are all starting their families now! It’s such a blessing to be connected to each of them […]

Amy & Jeff – an international maternity shoot

Amy and I have talked numerous times about where our friendship started, and how, but to describe how it has grown and developed and gone to great depths would probably take forever to write, and I would be a blubbering mess by the end. What I do know is that in the last two years, […]

Kristin & Russ’ Kalamazoo wedding

After a lovely day with Marlee & John, we packed up and headed right back down state for Kristin & Russ’ beautiful Kalamazoo wedding. Planned and styled by my amazing friend, Dee Mitchell of Elements of Elegance, I knew it was going to be a beautiful affair, and I knew we would enjoy our day […]

Marlee & John’s Castle Farms Wedding

I know I say I have a lot of special brides, and over the past few years, I’ve been honored to be a part of the celebrations of some girls I have known since they were wee babes. This is one of those stories. Marlee first entered our family (yes, she’s even family!) when she […]

Paulita & Chris – Wallinwood Jenison wedding

I first met Paulita when she was the Maid of Honor for my sweet Megan’s wedding – and met someone full of vitality and personality. Lucky me when I was asked to photograph her wedding a few years later (and Megan was the Maid of Honor for this one!). I just love fall weddings in […]

Harper & Philip – Grand Rapids wedding

Well suffice it to say, this blog post is long LONG overdue…. I think I’ve thought about it 100 times, wondering how I could put into words what being a part of Harper & Philip’s wedding was like for us. It all started when I first met with them. Insta-love. I do believe I said, […]
