Welcome to


Such a lovely morning documenting the newest addition to the Hogeterp family in their beautiful new East Grand Rapids home. Lifestyle newborn photography give the opportunity to go at a relaxed pace, capture moments of life that are true to your family, and give a wonderful backdrop of your own home to treasure always.  Not to mention important pawed siblings can get in on the portraits. 🙂 We get those sweet portraits of the little one too…after a feeding, sometimes two. I love mixing portraits and storytelling. It’s my favorite.

Had the pleasure of meeting and working with the lovely Karla from Home Sweet Homes. She is a local realtor and a fantastic human. I also got to meet her bestie Mr. Dallas, what a sweet kitty!

Always so fun to get to know my wedding clients better before their big day. Engagement sessions play a big part in getting to know each other better and how we work together. I so enjoyed getting to know Jessica and Dexter better during while taking their MSU campus engagement photos. The couple told many great stories of their time here. It was a fun day chatting about beer and television, my two most favorite things after my kiddos and photography. I can’t wait for the wedding! So thankful you found me Jessica and Dexter!

This was a amazingly fun wedding to be a part of! Emily and Nate are both incredibly cool people and they put on an lovely Goei Center wedding. The details of the day were personal , sweet and beautifully done. The special first look included a surprise serenade to the bride, not a dry eye in the house.  I LOVED their table cards and decor details. They had the ever awesome Cakabakery for their sweets table and the super duper amazing AB for the days music. And if all this wasn’t enough she stunned us all in her gorgeous BHLDN dress…it was magical. Can we do it again Emily and Nate?!?


This beautiful fur wrap was found the day before the wedding. It belongs to the Bride’s grandmother and matched her gown perfectly and was a welcome addition on the very chill snowy day. 002_goei-center-wedding003_goei-center-wedding004_goei-center-wedding005_goei-center-wedding006_goei-center-wedding007_goei-center-wedding
