Mastin Family + Maternity Photos // Holland, MI

Remember this gorgeous momma & daughter from Monday’s sneak peek?!?

2014.6.13 Mastin Family Facebook Red-6901_STOMPYeah, I didn’t think you could forget :P

Maggie is my cousin/basically sister, and I was SO excited to get the chance to stay with her and her hubs + Raena this past Thursday before my girl’s weekend in Michigan!!! We made a photo session out of it to document Raena’s 2 year birthday (close enough..:) ) and Maggie’s baby bump #2!!!! It was a PERFECT day and I had so much fun running around Holland with them!! And run we did….Raena was on a WAR PATH!! Ha!! I’m pretty sure she never sat still for the entire session!!!┬áThank goodness for fast shutter speeds & my past XC experience…woot woot! :)

I’m just warning you now…this is gonna be a long one :)

I love a session full of lots of laughter :)

These next few are some of my FAVORITES!! Mags specifically asked for some fun pictures of her & Raena — since she is normally the one behind the camera, she didn’t have too many already!

Near the end of the ssession we grabbed some type of cinnamon roll made straight from heaven. It was THAT good.2014.6.13 Mastin Family Facebook Red-7279_STOMP 2014.6.13 Mastin Family Facebook Red-7300_STOMP

So, while Raena was distracted with the yummy-goodness, we took a few shots of just Maggie & Jeff :)

This next image is a throwback to when RAENA was still just a little “bud” — we took the same picture with her future baby shoes & baby bump, so obviously we had to repeat for Baby Mastin #2! Love Raena’s hands reaching up :)2014.6.13 Mastin Family Facebook Red-7402_STOMP 2014.6.13 Mastin Family Facebook Red-7438_STOMP 2014.6.13 Mastin Family Facebook Red-7444_STOMP

And just so you can compare…here is the photo from two years ago and this past weekend’s side-by-side :)

I was so excited when Liz asked me to photograph their newest addition’s newborn pics. Henry is SUCH a sweetie, and he totally ROCKED his first photoshoot!

It was so great seeing his new big sisters interacting with him and lovin’ on him :)

Liz and Bobby, thank you so much for letting me photograph this day. I hope these pictures serve as a reminder of how sweet and small your little man once was and that you can enjoy them for the years to come! You have a BEAUTIFUL family — can’t wait to see all the fun things your futures hold! :)

 

Family | Ella + Claire

Despite the rainy-day forecast, we had BEAUTIFUL fall weather for our Saturday morning shoot — perfect for leaf-collecting & river jumping!! I had SO much fun photographing these two cuties! Not only are Ella and Claire sisters, but they’re best buds too. It was great seeing them goof-off together, and I love how much Claire looks up to her big sis :) That and the fact that Liz QUADRUPLED their adorableness by putting them in matching outfits made for a pretty great fall shoot :) Enjoy!!
