Meg , Andrew and I have a relationship that goes back a few years. They hired me for engagement pictures in Chicago and also their fabulous wedding at Cascade Country Club. Now they come up from Chicago for me to photograph their baby Leighton. What a doll! Thanks Meg and Andrew for making the trip. We spent the mid day taking baby portraits and family pictures in Grand Rapids. They let me have freedom and these are just a few we came up with. Enjoy.

Just to give a little update on how the website rebuild is going. If you have been following along the site has grown incredibly in the last 2 days. I finally got the past images to load…thanks tons to Jamie from Color Splash for the awesome wordpress plugin from Velvet Blues called UPDATE URLs. I certainly dont want to geek out here but all the “paths” for my images were spelled out a certain way from the old blog…the needed a new “path”…written one by one….which if you take into the account I have been blogging since 2006 you would realize its over 2500 images….I was need deep in changing every image one by one. But thanks to the pluggin it worked like a charm in about 1.5 seconds!

We also spent some time re-uploading all of our gallery proofing. This took a few days but I am happy to say everything is back up! So if your gallery is not expired go look at them now 🙂

Also, just to inform you, in the move I lost all of my blog posts from the last of April until now…so I am going to be blogging a whole summers worth of sessions and weddings through the next few months. I will try not to overwhelm and do 2 a day for a while.

I would like to personally thank Darryl from intothedarkroom for his patience and his clear understanding of web building. Also the host site, site5 for  getting us back online as soon as they could.

The only things left are the galleries that will be permanently online for showing off your images 🙂 I am in the process of going through terabytes of images to put up. It is a incredible reminder to all of you great clients how lucky I am to know each of you and get to photograph you. Thank you.

Hi Everyone! I am getting excited for our workshop and thought I would share with you a few exciting things that are in the works.
  • This will be a business building seminar/workshop. We will discuss everything related to your business and how to help make it better, more profitable and have a business you run instead of a business that runs you.
  • Are you getting the clients you want? How to get clients in the door. How to keep them.
  • Are your clients choosing you based on your price or your style?
  • How to set up packages to increase profits.
  • How to keep a balance between your business and your home life.
  • Survive the off season
  • Gain more time and learn from my mistakes
  • Weddings, Seniors and Families.
*We will finish with a “roundtable” discussion with special guests Ben and Mindy Peterson, Ben and Laura Harrison and from the outside looking in Color Inc. owner Tim Kasburger. This will be the time to get to know a bit more about the industry from all angles. From our different types of styles of photography to a lab owner who sees the trends and purchasing habits of the very clients you are trying to sell to.
This will be a fun, humorous  and informative workshop. I have been in the business for 15 full years and have seen lots of trends, lots of styles, lots of crazies and a lot of great times. Its how you handle all of those times that keep your business above the rest and keep your reputation and demand in good check.
  • A small list of people and companies who have been in my viewfinder:
Sting
George Bush
Gerald Ford
LeAnn Rimes
Rich DeVos
Wynton Marsalis
Amway
Steelcase
Grand Rapids Art Museum
Wolverine
Herman Miller
University of Michigan
Chicago Times
Whirlpool
and countless people who have trusted me to document their lives famous or not.
  • It looks like the workshop will be April 17. We are finalizing details on location, but it looks like we will be Downtown Grand Rapids.
The cost is $750
There will be more information to follow.
Thanks everyone!

Jamie and I were out at the Hope College Dimnent Chapel last Friday for the wedding of Leigh & Todd. The church is incredible! It was great to be back there again. We were met by a film crew on the campus grounds (which surprised all of us) but they were quiet on the set 🙂 for the wedding. Complete with a bagpiper, Parker’s Converse High tops, a Rolls Royce, the Hope College women’s soccer team (past and present) and might I add a New England Patriots Super Bowl ring we were ready to go. The reception was out at The Felt Mansion. Again, a terrific venue for a relaxed reception. Such a wonderful place to hang out and have a party! Thanks again Leigh and Todd and everyone involved who made us feel welcome.
