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.

Kalamazoo MI Family Photographer | The Austins In-Home Session

Pregnancy insomnia leaves me plenty of time to think in the middle of the night, and since I'm smack dab in the middle of editing their in-home documentary session right now, this beautiful family was in my thoughts. I always leave their sessions in the happiest mood, and I couldn't put my finger on what exactly it was until just last night (because they do so many things right and good and well) -- but it's the way they encourage closeness - between their children, between themselves as spouses, and as a whole. I overheard so many kind words about eachother while I was in their home, and I'm realizing how much these documentary sessions changes ME as a person and mother, too. I go home to my own children & feel like I have a new chance to make the best of this day - to see my children and give them all the grace they deserve while spending ample time filling up their cups. If I can do that, then I know I'm succeeding in one of the biggest goals of my life. 

Thank you Austin family for always inspiring me to love wholeheartedly. You are such beautiful examples of what it means to put eachother first.

Enjoy!
