2019 P52, Week 4. A Week of Play. Kalamazoo Michigan Photographer, Elyse Rowland.

So much play this week… funny faces in the bathroom glass cubes, jumping on the bed and telling me that pretty soon you’ll be “5, 6, 7 years old!” (nooooo please, stop growing so fast!), building a giant snowman all on their own and then dying him funny colors with food dye, snowball fights with their daddy by the back bridge, and making ‘sparkles’ in the air by throwing snow in the gorgeous sunshine. My sweet Remy asked to use my camera, and took some photos of me doing something I recently picked back up – journaling. And I’ve noticed more and more that River (4) is playing alongside Rhett (almost 2).

What a blessing to watch these three grow. Once again, I’m grateful for this project because it encouraged me to pick up my camera when I otherwise might not have.


Thanks for visiting my blog! I’m Elyse, the face behind Elyse Rowland Photography of Southwest Michigan, near Kalamazoo.

I currently offer both in-home documentary and outdoor lifestyle sessions. I customize each & every session to my beautiful client's lives, and I'm able to give clients my full attention by only taking a small number of sessions each month.
