Grand Rapids Family Session | Joe Tamra and Zander
I was so pumped for this Grand Rapids family session with Joe, Tamra and Zander! The three of them live just outside of Grand Rapids and they love spending time outside. Joe and Tamra grew up in Grand Rapids and some of their favorite memories are in Northern Michigan. Tamra says her favorite thing about living in Michigan is the season changes. “Spending a week at the cottage with Joe’s family in Charlevoix. I also loved Mackinaw Island as a kid.”
Well, when I drove down for their Grand Rapids family session I wore shorts. I’m in denial that summer is over and I figured this might be one of the last warm days of the season. The skies were overcast in Traverse City but clear in Grand Rapids. I definitely enjoyed the warm sun and the colors were just starting to pop in Joe and Tamra’s neighborhood. We drove to their local favorite park complete with a rock climbing wall, rope course, and a silo you can climb up for an incredible view of Grand Rapids.
Zander was all smiles for this autumn adventure. He’s a very curious dude and a little mischevious too. Zander enjoyed playing games with mom and dad. He loved it when dad threw him way up in the air. I enjoyed capturing Zander’s expressions as he was deep in contemplation. Also, let me just say that this family has a lot of energy! Tamra is expecting a girl in March, but that didn’t slow her down. I think we all got our steps in that day and Zander had lots of fun running away from mom and dad.
As the sun set on our Grand Rapids family session, we all headed downtown for some burgers and steak. Thanks Tamra, Joe, and Zander for a fun adventure.
