Rob + Sabine + Max || Grand Haven, Michigan Family Portraits || West Michigan Family Photography

I LOVE being back in Grand Haven. I LOVE getting a chance to photograph one of my favorite families. And I LOVE seeing how much Max has grown!! Soooooooo there’s a lotta love in this post. Kicking it off with one of my faves!

You guys are the cutest!

I LOOOOOVE how Max is looking at his mama in this one. 

Can this kid BE any cuter?!?!

Another fave!!

Thanks for spending the evening with me guys! Loved getting to see you again!



Spring Lake, Michigan

Together :: March 2001 // Married :: August 30th, 2004

SABINE // Hometown ::  Vienna, Austria // Fave Food :: veal scalloping with potatoes or rice // 5 words :: understanding, trustworthy, teacher, beauty, everything
ROBERT // Hometown :: Atlanta, GA // Fave Food :: burger and a beer // 5 words :: funny, honest, hard working, protective, generous
MAX // Age: 6 (7/25) // Fave Food :: Mac and cheese // 5 words  :: very funny, insightful, happy, curious, adventurous
Perfect Weekend :: depends who you’re asking 😉 could be a ranger ride on the sand dunes, with a picnic and swim on the beach or casting some fishing lines, followed by heading to our cabin and going hunting ending the night with a bonfire, smores and fun stories! For sabine we could leave out the hunting and replace with relaxing and reading. In the winter we would just simply spend the day with breakfast, skiing all day long and finishing the day by the fireplace with watching football

Favorite Max Habit :: Singing and busting moves anywhere he goes and anything he does; he is so adventurous that he constantly seeks to do new things by himself. And snuggling.
