Krishanna + Jay / Anniversary Shoot / St. John USVI / Destination Wedding Photographer


It’s hard to even know where to start on this post. Jeff + I photographed Krishanna+Jay’s wedding in the fall of 2015 on the tropical island of St. John. We adored and loved these two souls. Had the opportunity to get to know them more throughout the time we spent celebrating their wedding last year. And then parted ways.
Then, this past spring when they were visiting family here in Michigan, Krishanna reached out and wondered if we might want to have a drink together. It turned into a night of cocktails on our balcony, dinner at our favorite spot down the street and merrily catching up and forging a friendship that demanded we spend more time together. Fast forward to this past fall when Krishanna and Jay mentioned they were heading back to the scene of their destination wedding to celebrate their first anniversary. They wondered if we might want to join them and enjoy a vacation after a busy wedding season. We did just that. And couldn’t resist giving them an anniversary session. Here are the resulting images of a great friendship and the sweetest souls. We love you two!! Baby shark says hi! 😉

Sweet Morgan + Auburn / A Maternity Lifestyle Session / Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer

046_morganmaternitysession
I like that this world is a small one.
It is just the case in this story…the story of how I met this sweet mama named Morgan. Months ago, she purchased this print from West Elm. A follower of mine on Instagram tagged me on said picture. I looked at the image, loved how Morgan used it in her pretty home, and asked her if I could repost it. I saw from her profile she lived in Grand Rapids…not far from myself! We struck up a conversation, she purchased a few more prints, and then we chatted about a little lifestyle maternity session before she welcomed her second son into this world (he was born yesterday by the way!!)
Her husband was working and couldn’t make all of our crazy timing work for this session, but Morgan and her adorable toddler Auburn were happy to show me around their restored family farm house, meet some chickens, pick flowers and veggies from the garden (they even sent me home with some!) and had the loveliest morning together.
Check out her own blog and follow her along on Instagram. Her house is full of the prettiest personal touches and bright airy design. She’s an inspiration to many and has the personality to match. Enjoy Enjoy!
