Lynell + Dan + Ellie / Maternity and Family Session / Grand Rapids Family Photographer

084_MillerMaternityGallery  Just as this family is nearing their time as a family of three, I thought I would post this session from last month of my dear friends Lynell+Dan and their little Ellie. As tradition holds, I have photographed some pretty big moments for these sweet friends. Their engagement session, their wedding day. Their maternity session with Ellie, Ellie’s grand entrance into the world, and now as they await their baby girl Lilly…set to arrive…well, soon (and hopefully while I’m IN town and around to be there for Lilly’s birth too!), will round out some pretty big moments in the past 3.5 years.

Knowing many friends who have gone from one baby, to two, and then more…I know how hard it is…especially on those mamas, about giving their next baby the same and equal love the first one(s) have enjoyed. I know that Lynell has been holding tight to these precious last moments with Ellie before she becomes a big sister, and I tried hard to encapsulate their sweet bond they all have. I also have absolutely no doubts that Ellie will be an incredibly excited and doting big sister to her little Lilly!

It makes me incredibly joyful to have the privilege to document these moments. Not perfectly choreographed moments. But real ones. In a field of sheep. 078_MillerMaternityGallery   111_MillerMaternityGallery 109_MillerMaternityGallery 108_MillerMaternityGallery 105_MillerMaternityGallery 144_MillerMaternityGallery 143_MillerMaternityGallery 139_MillerMaternityGallery 157_MillerMaternityGallery 154_MillerMaternityGallery 167_MillerMaternityGallery 153_MillerMaternityGallery 150_MillerMaternityGallery 147_MillerMaternityGallery 168_MillerMaternityGallery

A little cameo of the back of my own little Mayer Grey. My family was along for the shoot and these two babies are seriously the sweetest together.
