We first met Clay and Kristin this past summer at Nick and Sam's southwest Michigan wedding in July. During the day my wife and Kristin started chatting about their wedding photos. Kristin said she was hoping to schedule a session around their 1 year anniversary in October that would allow them to have some photos they loved of each other. In addition, they wanted to include the third member of their family, Isabel, their Australian Cattle dog. As we chatted about what they were hoping for during the session, we knew Kristin's vision was for a 'picnic themed session' at a local park. We chose a park in downtown Grand Haven and then decided to head to Lake Michigan following some photo time at the park.
When Clay and Kristin arrived, we were immediately impressed with their effort and the lengths they went to think through all the little details of their session, including their anniversary pie, picnic basket, etc.
Below is just a sample of the images from their Grand Haven picnic themed portrait session. If you would like to view more images, be sure to visit their portrait gallery. Also, don't forget to leave a comment below letting Clay and Kristin know what you love best about their portraits!
