Diamond Lake Family Photos | Southwest Lower Michigan Family Photography

Extended family sessions are super freakin’ fun, especially when they’re in a place that the family holds close to their heart!

This gorgeous family enjoyed some quality time together, during the Fourth of July weekend, at gorgeous Diamond Lake, in Southwest Lower Michigan.

You could say … they all have literally, grown up on the lake. And the weekend was quite celebratory for everyone! Not only was it the first family photo for the little lady, who is the first grandchild in the Valencia family, but it was also a birthday celebration for that gorgeous duo in white … they both just turned 60! Grandparents, uncles, cousins and aunts were also on hand to celebrate too! And although a little warm, this beautiful family made the most of it! 

There were laughs, a few tears, but mostly, there were good times. Thankful they braved the heat together ... and I'm pretty sure they all jumped in the lake afterwards!

With so much love and gratitude,
-Emily

Rozsa Family {Buchanan, Michigan}

Celebrated with this family over the summer, for their parents 40th wedding anniversary!

Ventured to this beautiful farmhouse, in Buchanan, Michigan, which has been in the family for many years, and where the entire family stayed to celebrate the weekend together!

Such a fun bunch, who know how to make each other laugh! Not to mention, the weather was perfect! We even got a little silly! My favorite moment was when I asked Jack & Bev if they remember their first kiss … needless to say, the moment was priceless! {make sure to check those photos out below!} ;-)

Grateful for these beautiful memories with such wonderful people!!!

Congratulations Jack & Bev! Cheers to 40+ more years!!!

Kirkland Family | St. Patrick's Park

Oh my goshhhh, this family right here. So stinking sweet and adorable. Their two little ones, Elizabeth and Lucy, were nothing but smiles!! And that sweet little baby is only 4 months old!! AHH!

We met up at St. Patrick’s Park in South Bend and ventured around. Little Lucy was all about the photos and I couldn’t of been happier. I am so thankful we get to meet amazing clients like the Kirkland family!! <3

Reed Family | Lifestyle Session

I just adore this sweet family! I met them when little Hazel turned 1 and since then they have a new addition!! They are so sweet and kind and have so much fun together! Grandma and Grandpa joined us for this lifestyle in-home session!

Doland Family | Zionsville, Indiana

I originally met the Doland family three years ago when I shot their family photos when little Bennett was just 6 months in Elkhart. I meet up with them every year since in the fall and photograph their sweet family. Bennett keeps growing and slowly becoming a little man who is sweeter than sweet. They recently moved to Zionsville right outside of Indianapolis. This town is so stinkin adorable and they are loving it down there! Yay to our amazing clients!
