Zach + Jaclyn | Grand Rapids, Michigan | Loft Family Session |

mid-west based traveling wedding and elopement photographer

Oct 15, 2017 | Portraits

Jaclyn and Zach are probably the two people that I look up to the most when it comes to marriage and building a family. They truly live a life completely devoted to the Lord, and from that overflows their love for each other and their daughter, Willow.

I was so blessed to take their family photos this fall. This shoot took place in a loft above an old antique shop in downtown Grand Rapids.

This first picture is one of my favorites from the session. It was the first photo taken that night while I was just testing the light and they were getting situated. When I sent this to Jaclyn with the rest of her sneak peeks, she responded vulnerably and honestly:

“I’ve been feeling the Lord speak to me about the secret moments of being a parent… so much of life caring for a baby is totally unseen and so not glamorous, but this past year I’ve never felt so seen and heard by God. That black and white photo reflects that perfectly to me.”

Isn’t it incredible the way God knows exactly what our hearts need in different seasons? So thankful for this sweet family and their willingness to speak truth.
