Spring is in the Air!

  While I’m not counting my chickens until they hatch (it IS Grand Rapids, MI after all), the warmer temps and melting snow have me excitedly looking forward to spring. Which means FAMILY SESSIONS are almost here! Last year I focused on catching more of the intimate, soulful moments families experience, and I’ll be expanding on that even more in 2021. If you’ve checked out my latest offerings, I’ve added an Heirloom Family option this year. This package includes more digital images, longer shoot time, and a great deal more travel allowance. These shoots are designed for families that want

Grand Rapids, MI Newborn Photographer | Awards Season

    Much like Moira Rose, my favorite season is AWARDS! So you can imagine I was pretty thrilled when I found out that four of the five images I entered into competition placed as winners!     While entering competitions is much more about the feedback and learning from others, I’m always surprised and grateful to find out that judges from all across the world found some of my photos were worthy.

Grand Rapids MI Newborn Photographer| Ellie B Photography is Moving!

We’re Moving!   Yes! You read that right!  Ellie B Photography is moving this summer! While we aren’t moving far (just a mile north in Middleville), the move will allow for some much needed additional shooting space and added amenities.   (Cellphone Photo Credit: Husband)   By fall, you’ll be able to view your final galleries in-person or via Zoom and select hand-picked heirlooms such as albums, wooden art, and canvases. My goal has always been to provide my families with an exceptional customer experience, and helping you choose the perfect options to display your memories is just one more

Cheers to a New Year

I think we can all agree that the close out of 2020 is a welcomed thought. But throughout this tumultuous year, I’ve been able to reflect back and found myself more grateful than ever before, and you all are a big part of that. Once photography was able to safely open again, I found myself booked month after month. I was able to laugh with families, meet new babies, and celebrate pregnancies. You all helped keep me grounded in what has been one of our most challenging years as a nation, and for that, I give a most heartfelt thank



For me, photographs are so much more than a moment captured on camera—they’re memories. That’s why with every session, I strive to produce beautiful, timeless memories of your family that you can hang on your wall, place on your mantle, or tuck away in your wallet so you can relive them whenever you want.
