Elm & Olive
Grand Haven, Michigan
This family session was full of LIFE and LOVE. This family is from Utah, but they travel to Grand Haven, Michigan every year for a family vacation.They reached out to me to have a family session with their 6 month old baby boy, Oliver. They showed up full of life and had so much fun chasing each other and loving on their sweet boy who happened to fall asleep during the session. They brought their mom along to hold Oliver while he slept so that they could get a few images of just the two of them. The series of them running down the dunes together was a highlight of my summer. Their love was so evident and such a joy to photograph. Oliver woke up happy and we kept shooting as his mom and dad snuggled him next to gentle waves. It really was a dreamy morning.
Elm & Olive is fine art photography for the wild and free at heart. We love families who want to us capture their family giggling and loving on each other. I’m a natural light photographer who’s style has been described as light, airy and film-inspired. I dream to capture real emotional and connection in every session. My sessions are relaxed and truly fun. I live in Grand Haven, Michigan, a little town on Lake Michigan. It’s bustling with beach-goers in the summer and a sleepy beach town in the winter. In the summer months you can find me running to our dunes with my family and also drinking a strong cup of coffee.
