Dozeman : Family Love

Another fellow High school alumni family was in my studio this weekend and I'm also proud to say she's my cousin.... well, 2nd, twice removed, on some side of someone's family.... lol!   It's been 2 years since I saw her because she moved out of the country... yes, not state... country. She and her family have been faithful to following where God calls and they have been called to lead a church in Canada.  On top of all that, they just added #4 to their family!!!  (ya, you'd never know it because she's still as thin as a rail... not fair...) Her kiddos are wonderful!  Not to mention their fourth is named after my first! LOL!  Totally NOT, but they have the same name, so I can pretend...  What fun we had... their kiddos are Fun, beautiful and well mannered... at least they were at the studio :)  What a blessing it was for me to get her call for family photos.  Enjoy some teasers of the Dozeman Family!

 1.  Gift Certificate Sessions

The Sweet and simple....  A photo session for 2016, whether that's a newborn, child, family, or senior session, they all are on sale from now through Christmas Eve.  $50 is all it takes!

The 'I'm-their-Favorite'....... ha ha...... kidding, but really, it's a great choice for an all-inclusive gift.  For $300, you can give a session with the digital negatives to anyone! (this is our returning client discount available to anyone until Christmas!)  I only have 15 of these sessions to sell before Christmas, so hurry to reserve yours!  Again, this session will have a gift card for you to give at your parties, and these sessions are also for 2016.

Wacky Williams : Expressions 2015

Remember Personality shots!?  Well, the last ones I did were over a year ago, and after looking through a few of our 2014 Wacky Williams images, I decided that there are a few that should be done annually, to track the growth of our littles.

This was certainly one that I'll love comparing back to their previous years.  So, here you have it;  Cadence is 3 1/2, Lex is 5, and Zeke is 7 1/2.  Enjoy my littles, and their many facial expressions!

I just can't stop looking at all their fun personalities.  Children are a joy and a blessing, and though the times get rough sometimes, I love looking at each shot of who these little ones really are, and see the potential each of them have to be the leaders of the next generation.  Keep them young, keep them innocent, keep them pure, and keep them running the race and fighting the good fight.

It brings a happy tear to my eye when I think about Jesus calling the little children to come to him, and how someday, I can picture these littles, sitting on Jesus' lap singing their songs, and laughing with Jesus.

Balkema : Kiddos

These are my cousin's kiddos... Yes... 5.  We meet at a park in Allegan and had some playtime (with pictures of course!)  It's amazing to watch these littles grow.  My cousin, is like, wonder mom... they live in a very quiet area, and homeschool, make their own syrup, ride horses.... It really sounds like the perfect life to me!   Isaac (the little guy) wasn't too thrilled for pictures at first, but when he warmed up to me, he has the cutest smiles!  Enjoy!

Olivia : 3

Little Olivia turns 3!!!  Just in time to become a big sister to her new little sibling arriving any day!  I can't wait to meet this little one!   Of course, we had to do a few family photos, and maternity for pretty momma.
 Well, Olivia is a beautiful little Shirley Temple haired girl with a spunky attitude.  She loves Mr. Bear and offers many kisses and hugs to keep him happy.  I'm in love with all her adorable bright outfits.... I think her mom needs to shop for me... LOL!!!  Enjoy a few teasers of Miss Olivia!

Brandon & Jen : Waiting

Congrats to this growing little family!!!!  Brandon and Jen will be welcoming their sweet little baby boy first thing next year... or maybe yet this year! :)  This couple has really had a rough strike in life since I've known them.  We met at a wedding, then photographed their wedding not long after.  Jen is also a talented photographer, running J. Elizabeth Photography in Muskegon, MI.  I've watched them struggle, suffer persecution, saddened by infertility, and now laugh in the beautiful growth of their baby.  Through it all, they remain faithful to God and to serving him with a strengthened and renewed faith.  
On a cold, but sunny November day, we captured their maternity session near their home in Muskegon.  It's fun seeing new shooting grounds and we certainly put a bunch of it to good use!  Enjoy their teasers!
