Love radiated from this family. They were exuberant, happy, and a joy to photograph. From my experience as a mama, babies are usually happiest in the morning (see his ADORABLE smiles below). And this was the case with this awesome family visiting Grand Haven from out of town. I was honored to meet them by Lake Michigan to photograph their beautiful family on vacation. Their sweet babe fell asleep next to Lake Michigan crashing waves (hello perfect nap spot!) and we were able to get some great photos of this precious sleeping baby. If every couple can maintain a tiny amount of the true love that this couple have, they will have it made. Be sure to look below for when the couple gave it their ALL running down the dunes. Movement in photography is one of my favorite things to capture, because it's real. And authenticity is what I'm always looking for, you can just tell when a couple or a family is truly feeling it and completely present in the moment. What a gift to photograph! Thank you for the honor to photograph your family beach side!
