Hello, friends! It's been awhile since I introduced myself here & I see some new faces;) My name is Kelly Braman. I'm Micah's wife, Jack & Charlie b.'s mama & puppy mama to Sullivan James our sweet golden lab. (Yes...I'm the only girl in the Braman household;) I'm a professional photographer based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Three fun facts about me that you might not know:) 1. I LOVE to travel. Adventure has always been a huge part of my life. I Do Not Love to fly. But! I Will Not let fear hold me back so I make myself get on the plane & think to myself: I'm doing this to myself 😂 I booked this flight😂 ha Dream locations to visit & shoot: Positano Italy, Ireland ,Maldives(ok..any place with water;) , & take me back to South Africa Stat😉 State side: Wedding in Vermont, Mackinac Island & Charming Carolinas to name just a few 😉 2. I met my husband in high school. I picked him up, as a favor, our senior year. His dad is a pastor & he was in trouble for skipping school so he took his car away;) I thought he was funny & his head to toe Abercrombie must have won me over😂 We started dating a year later after he followed me to a concert in the middle of a cow pasture owned by one of our state reps. 😂Yep. Rural living at its finest 😂 One million stories later: here we are with a massive testimony I know God will continue to use 💕 3. I was a stay at home mama for 8 years. I'm so grateful for that time with my boys. Photography was a 7 year prayer of mine & one day God began to open all the right doors. I couldn't dream up this God story He's given me. So many life lessons wrapped up in this story, as well👊🏻 I'm continually giving my business back to Him & surrendering to what He wants to use it for:) Well...I hope this was slightly fun ;)😂💕 I'd love to know more about you! How did you meet/begin dating your significant other?! In a cow pasture like me? 😂 Do tell!
Smiling as I edit this dreamy Northern Michigan wedding! The details were 🙌🏻 Sharing next week! Happy Friday, y'all!
Maddie's senior session is on the blog. I couldn't love it more!💕🙌🏻 What a fun & surprising summer. God has me right where I'm supposed to be as I document this big milestone for these sweet seniors. It's been so fun for me,as well as connecting with these mamas in the same season I'm in! Unless you have experienced raising a child & watching them grow, guiding them, loving them & then one day you wake up & they are approaching their final year under your complete care...you can't relate. It's the craziest feeling. Full of joy, excitement, sadness, & an ache I pray subsides:) Talking to other parents has been so wonderful. I'm truly thankful God knows what each of us needs // Teens (in general...not specifically the teens I'm photographing;) carry so much pressure (I'm praying against that) during this time in their lives & if I can offer an afternoon to feel confident & beautiful, and a memory to match...then what a gift for both of us! Cheers to all of the 2018 seniors! Let's remember to pray for all of them, at every school, & their parents. God has so much in store for them!! No need to worry 💕
