I had the opportunity to take some pictures of this precious little newborn boy. What a beautiful baby! He stayed awake the whole time and only cried when he was hungry... well and when he was naked. Kamden and his parents were so fun to work with. Again, congrats Nichole and Kurt!!

avril's 3 month

Avril is 3 months old! Well actually that was a couple weeks ago, so she is actually getting closer to 4 months. Her and her mommy were so delightful to take pictures of. I'm sure it has a little to do with them both being very close to my heart, but they both are so beautiful! Avril is so expressive and it is really fun to watch her and her mom interact!

little ones!

I just ordered some new "advertisement cards". This is the back of it, and i just thought I'd show it off. I love taking pictures of little ones. They are just so much fun!!

Some of you know I took a roadtrip this past weekend to Campo, Colorado. Campo is near the Oklahoma border and not too far from the Kansas either. I went with my brother & mom to see my cousin Natalie who had leukemia. We arrived Friday night and were able to spend time with her and the rest of the family. During the time we were there, Natalie had over 200 family and friends come by the house to visit her. She passed away Sunday evening surrounded by family and friends. I posted a while back about Natalie. I am a little in awe of her. Only 49, what an example of a loving, kind, caring, compassionate, beautiful, strong woman. She lived each to it's fullest. And most importantly she loved Jesus and the evidence of his presence in her life was aparent in everything she did ... til the end. Thinking and praying for you Royce, Jesse, Clint & Kayla and the rest of the fam!

Below are a few pictures from our trip. This is in pictured canyon which is literally just across the road from The Bursch place. Clint (Natalie's son) took us on a little expedition. I am discovering the older I get, the more afraid of heights I'm becoming.
My brother Eric.
Clint talked us into climbing on top of this thing. I didn't quite realize what we were doing until I was on top!

Eric and Clint taking a break from throwing rocks at birds. I think my great uncle dick says it best "the only difference between now and when these boys were 10 is they have checkbooks now."

engagement photos

I am a bit behind on my photo editing and posting. Here are some pictures I shot a couple weeks ago of a lovely couple that I was able to take engagment photos of. Tim and Meredith were great to work with. They actually met working for the Grand Rapids Parks and Rec department and thought it would be fitting to get their engagement photos taken in a few of Grand Rapids parks.
This was a really neat idea that Tim & Meredith had. These bricks are near the Ford Museum. The year's of their birth just happend to be right next to each other! So we snapped a pic with them standing in front of their birth year.
