As a storyteller, I’ve come to understand that one of the best things you can do is celebrate the “ups” in life – truth and love, the good times and the hopeful moments. Cherishing happiness + joy makes it easier to process the bad… and we all know that life has it’s difficult times. I’m grateful that photography allows me to be able to be a part of so many amazing stories, because of the constant reminders to me that life is beautiful. And today, I have some more good to share with you. :)
I recently spent some time with Russ + Courtney in downtown Grand Rapids for a maternity session. Maternity sessions are not my most popular type of shoot, but I always love being able to hang out with soon-to-be parents! I’m honored that these two would allow me to commemorate this beautiful time as a family. Russ + Courtney’s personal journey to parenthood has not been easy – it’s been a path marked with difficulty and grief. But in just a couple weeks, they are anticipating the arrival of their son… and that is a wonderfully awesome, good thing to celebrate. Russ + Courtney, THANK-YOU for sharing your story with me and allowing me to capture this exciting time in your lives. Can’t wait to meet the little guy!!
