Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? My husband I have an anniversary in five days so we never really celebrate this day because our anniversary is so close. However, it’s a great day for me to Love on my boys & a little self love for myself 💕(see above;) This morning, tucked into some chocolate, I wrote five things I love about each of them(my husband included:) I’m a firm believer in speaking life into the lives of those that I know & love. Nothing is extra special about today as you can send a text any day... a message to your kids, spouse, fiancé, friend and/or parent & call out the gold you see in them. Do you guys do anything like this too? I love hearing from other ladies/mamas! I know our words have power🙌🏻 XO ps. Book by @anniefdowns : 100 days to Brave 💕 ***I’ve seen parents of littles put hearts on their kids doors with what they love about them so when they wake up you can read it together🙌🏻💕 . . . . #shewalksinfaith #hearttoheart #lion #sowingseeds #moms #boymom #speaklife #speaklove #wordsofwisdom #wordshavepower #encouragement #ittakesavillage #clickinmoms #bethechange #bethelight #saltandlight
Hi, Friends!!! Oh my goodness it feels like forever since we’ve chatted;) I’ve been soaking up this slower paced winter & doting on my sweet family to the fullest❤️ It has been Absolutely wonderful! ❤️ I did sneak out of town to photograph this Adorable family as they welcomed baby brother, Luke Ford. Their mama, @ashleyslaterphotography is a fellow photographer & Im always honored when asked to photograph another photographer’s memories! (No pressure😂) She is the sweetest & her home of all boys melted my mama heart! I couldn’t be more excited about these images!!! Again...beautiful moments of genuine love/laughter/emotion are my heart in everything I document.❤️ It’s my favorite! I’m always looking for and making space for the gold ❤️ *pro tip: shooting in your own homes can be tricky with lighting: shoot by a window for the best light:) I will choose good light over a dark corner any day:) Full blog post coming soon! (It’s always so hard to choose a few:) Take a peek & oh!!! Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤️ #kellybramanphotography #lifestylephotography #valentinesday
I walked out of a bible study that I just started attending today (so excited:) & this view through the window stopped me in my tracks. So simple, yet holds so much beauty. Peaceful & powerful. Barren, yet full of hope for what’s to come. I’m loving the slower pace winter brings. I’m growing & resting & renewal are taking place. We weren’t made to bloom all year. Do you feel it, too?
A natural outdoor setting with gorgeous light & the sweetest clients to photograph & I’m one happy little lady🙌🏻 This adorable couple will be getting married at this very property with an outdoor ceremony & a tented reception this summer! I can’t wait! Truly the nicest couple + family who braved these frigid temps & served warm tea & snacks to warm up in between rides on the ranger her dad drove! I tell ya...I couldn’t be more thankful for kind-hearted sweethearts who ask me to be their photographer. I’m very grateful❤️ #kellybramanphotography #theknot #michiganwedding #engagementphotos #winter #winterengagement #thatsdarling #kbweddings #westmichiganphotography #kbbrides #grandrapidsphotographer #realweddings #risingtidesociety #love #engaged #huffpostido #soloverly #marthaweddings #realbride #michiganwedding #calledtobecreative #liveauthentic
