Hello, Hello!

I’m Ellie, and I specialize in maternity photography and newborn photography here in the Grand Rapids area.

Whether you’re welcoming a new member of the family, or want to capture the essence of your crew in this very moment, I know how important these photographs are. My goal is to leave you with beautiful, timeless images and an experience you’ll never forget.  From tailoring your session to fit your vision, to delivering stunning, heirloom products, I’ll help guide you every step of the way.

Are you thrilled at the thought of maternity photos, with all the romantic gowns and hair and makeup you can dream of? Or feeling a bit uncertain, unsure if maternity portraits fit your personal style? Either way, I’m your girl. 

There’s nothing quite like those first few weeks after you welcome your new baby to the family. Their tiny features and long eyelashes. How they seem to melt into you as you hold them close. The simple yet incredible feeling of peace. 

Grand Rapids Newborn Photographer and Maternity Photographer

"I would give Ellie 100 stars if I could. She has captured some of my family’s most treasured moments and they are so cherished. Her talent and work ethic are unmatched in my opinion. She has a wonderful way of grabbing the best candid shots as well as beautiful posing for the more formal photos. I cannot thank her enough. You will absolutely not be disappointed if you book a shoot (or five) with Ellie!”

The Experience

Your experience is just as important to me as the final product, which is why each session is specially curated to represent and suit you and your family’s unique needs and preferences.

I’m here to make sure you get the most value out of your session so you can look back fondly on your photos for years to come. 

Located just 20 minutes south of Grand Rapids, Michigan, my in-home studio has everything you need. You’ll have access to dozens of props, headbands and bonnets, stunning backdrops, and more. Coming in for a maternity or Mama & Me session?  You’ll have over 60 gowns to choose from with plenty of options for Baby.

"I am speechless!!! Thank you so much for this opportunity and making me feel so beautiful! I will truly cherish these photos for the rest of my life, you are an incredible photographer!!!
- Lauren
