Traveling has been a part of me since an early age. My parents didn’t have “extra” when I was growing up, but they somehow made a way for me to be able to explore. They sent me to Hawaii with two of my friends for my 16th birthday. We stayed with my aunt & uncle & it was heaven. I was hooked. I worked every summer to afford more adventures. My first international trip was right after graduation to Brazil. I stayed with our exchange student( she came to live with us for part of the summer because her host family was mean 😂) I flew alone & stayed in a country that spoke Portuguese & I didn’t know a lick of it 😂 I didn’t consider the language barrier;) I didn’t care. I was determined to make it work:) It was fun & amazing & also tough & I became homesick. Two months proved to be a long time at 18. :) These experiences shaped me. And still to this day I light up at the thought of the next adventure! I’m in a new season with my boys as they are a little older so some of this is opening up because God’s timing is always perfect. Today, after a full 3 days of adventures, amazing sights, beautiful images full of love, laughter & true connection, heartfelt conversations & travel, I’m taking the day off. I’ve booked some self care & will hug my family tight. Tell me...what fires you up? Do you love an adventure as much as I do!?
I’ve been photographing the sweetest seniors! Gabby was as absolute doll! Thank you, @august_fields_ for this fun behind the scenes! I’m up early this morning for a 7am sunrise session! Pass the coffee! Wait! I drink decaf! 😭 Happy Friday, friends! ❤️
I don’t share here often what my wedding clients have to say about their wedding, their experience or their sweet notes sent to me. I’m sprucing up my website( thank you a million times @fromthedaughter) & today I thought I would share a snippet of what Leah & Paul shared for my website. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You guys...I’m not kidding when I say these people that God has brought into my life are not simply clients. I love getting to know them & keeping in touch. It brings me so much joy to stay connected & share in their journey. It’s never been simply business for me & I’m beyond grateful! 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here’s what they shared: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kelly was hands down our favorite from our magical wedding day. She built such a relationship with us -- from FaceTiming to just chat with us, to meeting us at our home on a cozy fall afternoon for engagement photos, to photographing our wedding day -- she has always made us feel special. I honestly cried when Kelly left the ceremony location, she was comforting me before I walked down the aisle! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kelly goes above and beyond in all facets of her business. She even delivered beautifully edited photos after our wedding day to give us a 'sneak peak'! When her extensive collection of photos showed up in my inbox, it was like we got to experience our fairytale day all over again. Kelly is our photographer for life -- I cannot wait until the next momentous occasion for her to capture! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you Paul & Leah! So much love to you💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *would it he helpful if my brides shared little tips or something they loved or wished they would have done differently? Let me know in the comments below:) Don’t be shy:) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . . #theknot #kbbrides #michiganweddings #grandrapidsweddings #gardenwedding #huffpostido #calledtobecreative #weddingstyle #weddinginspiration #kellybramanphotography #ruffled #weddingdetails #weddingday #thingsadored #love #wedding #michiganwedding #grandrapidsbride #flowerstagr
