September’s Bride Live Mannequin Event!

Savoring one of the last warm evenings of the year, I headed out to Holland to attend the Live Mannequin Event that the city was hosting. Each of the businesses on 8Th St. chose a movie to create a live mannequin display for. The streets were packed! I tagged along with Allison Bower (who did all the fab makeup for the September’s Bride crew!) and took some pictures of the event.

Of course it was natural for September’s Bride to do the movie “The Princess Bride”. The models did amazing standing still as people passed by admiring their display:) They actually won an honorable mention in the competition!!

Any of you brides who are looking for a beautiful wedding dress MUST check out September’s Bride. Their dresses are absolutely beautiful and their staff are so wonderful and caring!!
Here are a few pics of the September’s Bride crew working it…..

Personal: Thankfulness!

As a super busy/fun summer draws to a close, I have been trying each day to focus on what I am thankful for in my life. Even in the darkest days I truly have so much to give thanks for and it reminds me of how great of a blessing each day is.

“For each new morning with its light,For rest and shelter of the night,For health and food, for love and friends,For everything Thy goodness sends.”-Ralph Waldo Emerson

In every circumstance we can choose love…choose joy…choose thankfulness! And to celebrate that I am posting a few pictures of things that gave me joy and made me thankful today:)

**A second chance for my flower boxes:) Over the busy wedding season I seemed to have forgotten to water my flower boxes…for about 2 months. So for 2 months we have had dead flowers in the boxes…not cute. This week my flower boxes were given a refreshing with beautiful mums:)

**My spazzy little baby; Mocha. Anyone who has met her knows she is a little bit of a freak, will bark with a furry but also love so deeply. Since I work from home she has become my little business partner. Love her!!

God has placed us where we are for a reason….embrace every moment and choose love!!

Senior Shoot: Kelsey!

Another gorgeous senior:) I met Kelsey when I shot her sister Nikki’s wedding in August. Her and her mom had the best idea to do her senior portraits during each season. So it was only natural for us to hit Grand Haven for her summer minisession:) We had a beautiful night with beautiful Lake Michigan sweet light:) Next up…her fall session!
