David Jenkins | Senior 2017

This was hands down, one of my all time favorite senior sessions! David was awesome and he was such a good sport about trying anything I asked him to. We started off the session at a family friend’s home and property. Let me tell you…it is a photographer’s DREAM! I really didn’t want to leave!

Of course, we had to, so our next stop was the football field and track. David is very athletic and plays for the Beaverton Beavers, and he is also in a ski club. He had a few requests here, and although I never promise things will turn out the way they hope for, I am pretty sure we nailed it this time! I love all of these, but the action shots are my favorite!

Another thing I loved about this session, are these photos in black and white. I rarely make photos b & w, (I guess I just love color too much) but every once in awhile a photo deserves to been seen this way. Perfection!


Thank you for choosing Forever Photography to capture this special time in your life, David! I wish you all the best as you begin your senior year and head into the future!



One on the Run

This sweet, and very active, little guy celebrated his first birthday in June! He has been a part of the Forever Photography family since his very first days, so of course I was thrilled to be able to capture him during this memorable time!


Here he is with his stuffed elephant that his nana bought him. He held onto it for all of 0.000756 seconds! He thought it would be more fun to throw it on the ground and see how many times his mom and dad would pick it up lol!

I sure enjoyed my time with Kingston (as I always do) but I’m sure his mom and dad were pretty worn out by the end of the session.  He had them doing every trick in the book to get him to smile! At the end of the session, K had had just about enough, so I told his dad to put him on his shoulders. He  leaned over as if to see who’s shoulders he was on, and then he began pulling back his dad’s eyelids! We laughed so hard! I guess that’s the trick you need to make someone smile haha!!

Happy ONE year, Kingston! xoxo


One Year…

The Pickard Wedding, revisited…


One year ago today, I had the honor of photographing the wedding of  Joe and Mariah.        If I remember correctly, it was a warm and sunny day, unlike the weather we are having today! The entire event took place at  The Crooked River  in Gladwin, Michigan, a beautiful barn venue with the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding. It was a day filled with love and laughter; tears and hugs. I can honestly say, I have met a couple who will love, honor and cherish each other all the days of their lives. Not only is their love for each other immense, their lives and marriage are deeply rooted in Christ. They are truly blessed.

Happy First Anniversary, Joe and Mariah! Wishing you many, many more years of love and laughter (and lots of babies for me to photograph too…hint, hint!) 🙂

Wedding in the Woods

I have had the pleasure of working with this lovely couple (and their family) a few times over the last couple of years, so I was really honored when I got a late night message asking if I would photograph their wedding which was to be two weeks later! Two weeks may not seem like a lot of time to plan a wedding, but I have to say I think they pulled it off flawlessly! Here is how their wedding in the woods went…

Thank you, Ally & Ty, for asking me to be a part of your special day! I wish you all the love and happiness your hearts can hold!


Mason is 6 months!

Say what?!?! That’s right! Mr. Mason is 6 months old already! He first came to visit me when  he was just a newborn and now he’s celebrating his first 1/2 birthday!

Mason19A few days ago, he brought his whole family (and his adorable smile) in to the studio to see me again! Isn’t he just the cutest thing you’ve ever seen! BlogBoard-4BlogBoard-12BlogBoard-15

Mother’s Day Special


What’s the one thing most moms cherish almost as much as their children?? Pictures of their children, of course!! What’s even better than that…having mom IN the photos with her children! So, with Mother’s Day right around the corner, what better gift to give than one she will love and cherish FOREVER! Gift certificates will be available (free of charge) to give to your mom on Mother’s Day (along with the gorgeous bouquet of flowers, hint-hint!)

The event will take place in the studio (no need to worry about the weather) with a light creamy backdrop that will go perfectly with any style and great for hanging in your home all year ’round!

This year I am trying something a little different…I am offering 3 different size packages for you to choose from. There is no sitting fee and no print purchase required. You choose the number of digital downloads you prefer. After your session, you will receive an online photo gallery where you will be able to view your proofs and choose which images you want according to the number you purchased. Of course, you can always upgrade to a larger package if you want more!


These sessions are great for moms and children of all ages and capturing generations of love as well! Grandma’s love being included in these special photos!


If you are interested in booking a session, please click here to send an email. Bookings are limited, as well as studio space. Please be sure to let me know how many family members there will be so I can be sure I can accommodate everyone.

I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for ol’ man winter to go bye-bye! This rainy, snowy, sleety stuff is for the birds! Well, actually I bet the birds prefer the warm spring air just as much as I do. I can only imagine what the robins are thinking right about now….

In my heart I know that the Spring weather will be here very soon though. We will see blue skies, hear the birds chirping and smell the fresh flowers blooming! (I can hardly wait!) So, in honor of Spring (and to challenge it to get here quickly) I am hosting a ONE DAY ONLY sale! No special reason, no special theme and NO SITTING FEE! Just choose how many images you would like!

Look at me…I am THREE!

This little cutie pie is celebrating his 3rd birthday today! I have been babysitting him since he was born. Just like my own kids, he is growing too fast and its hard to believe he is three already!

I took him to the studio yesterday to take pictures and he did so great! I may or may not have squealed with delight at his cuteness during most of the session 🙂  Here are a few of my favorites…




Happy Birthday, Max! We love you so much and hope your day is as special as you are!

XOXOXO, The Bovee Family
