Hope & Evan // Kalamazoo Maternity Photographer

EEP! I am so thrilled for Hope and Evan!

Just in case you don’t remember, Hope and Evan are awesome. See their wedding photos here.

When they booked with us, we included an engagement session but didn’t have time to do it before they got married and they were fine with that since everything was pretty short notice. We had planned to just do it sometime after the wedding. Evan works on movie sets doing video work, I’m not sure of his title exactly but that job takes him all over the place so with all the traveling plus our traveling, scheduling a time to make that session happen just never worked out. We had it planned once then the weather was bad.

So when I emailed hope again this year asking about planning a date she informed me she was pregnant! Thus, we decided to plan WAY ahead and make the session a maternity one. Since they were so patient I went all out on this one.

I’m so incredibly excited for their little boy to get here. I’ll be doing their family newborn session so you all will get to see him soon as well. :)

Just being around them makes me feel good. Being in the presence of people who love each other so much and are just such a perfect fit is just the best. Some people just have contagious personalities and Hope is one of those. I highly doubt there are people out there who don’t like her. Evan is super laid back and just a wonderful compliment to her more loud personality. :)

This is a BIG blog post. I tried for it not to be so much but I couldn’t. I realize I say that every time but it is what it is. I should just learn to accept that it will keep happening.

I hope you all love the photos as much as I do! She has the cutest pregnant belly and I’m sure the rest of us are super jealous, but lets just all try and live through her. I think that sounds like a good idea.

Whoa! FAVORITE!!!!
Also another big favorite. You just can’t pose moments like this. They are so wonderfully natural together. 
I should have made this little series by the crates smaller images put together or something but I loved them all on their own so much. Please don’t get bored with them, embrace them ALL!!! 
I LOVE sessions that are full of laughing. There were some points where I had a hard time shooting because I was also laughing so hard. 
Ok seriously? I adore this. Those little baby faux tom’s are just the cutest! 
Of course I had to do one of these :)
Hope has such an awesome style which is another reason I enjoy shooting her so much. When she showed me this cape thing, I about died. I really love this for belly shots. It’s different…mysterious. 
Is it weird I’m ending on my favorite image of the shoot? Perhaps. I consider it a treat for those of you who made it to the end. :) I practically want to get this printed huge for my own house.

I just had the most spectacular time with you guys again and I’m feeling so restless for Renn to get here! I’m sure he will be just painfully adorable. I hope to be taking family photos for you guys for many years to come. :)

Faith Van Enk - Holly, these were great! It’s really neat for us to have these shots as well, since Renn is our first grandchild and in some ways a symbol of the joy (and babies) to come.

Well done!
