Kalamazoo Michigan Family & Newborn Photographer | The Blake Family

Baby snuggles. I can't get enough. Especially since we've decided three is the perfect number for us over here at the Rowland homestead, so we're maxed out ;) Did I just say that out loud?! 

Jen & Brian have created such a beautiful home – yes, aesthetically (did you see the white on white?!), but also in the way they play, dance, snuggle up on the couch, laugh with eachother & find the humor in daily parenthood (#parentingishardsometimes!)

My hope with newborn sessions is to capture the joy, but also the REAL, and I think we did just that. No need to force smiles... just letting them be, in their own environment, their safe place. What I love about at-home sessions is the freedom. You're free to grab a snack when you're hungry, change a shirt if you get spit up on (or don't-won't bother me...), turn on a show for a toddler who's melting down (it's happened!) or head outside if the weather is nice & no one feels like being cooped up. It's flexible, comfy, and easy.  

I'd love to photograph your story in your home. I have just one spot left for November & December 2018, and then it's a wrap guys! (A HUGE thanks to all of my wonderful clients – I can't wait to hug each of you this year!!) I'll be opening my 2019 schedule toward the end of the year. 

Have a BEAUTIFUL summer, friends!

Xo, Elyse

Hi, and thanks for visiting my blog! I’m Elyse, the face behind Elyse Rowland Photography of Kalamazoo, Michigan. 

LOVES: That warm glow you can only find during sunset. Jesus + all the grace He gives this mama of 3 boys. Babies, especially my own, and the way his pudgy hands reach out to me. Morning sun dappling across a colorful quilt. Running with my red lab Waylon, and watching the sunrise. Traveling and photographing the most incredible people + places.

NOT SO MUCH: Being overly busy, clutter, and judgement.

I currently offer both in-home documentary and outdoor lifestyle sessions, as well as branding & headshot photography. I customize each & every session to my beautiful client's lives, and I'm able to give 110% of myself by only taking a small number of sessions each month.
