Grand Rapids Photographer {Newborn Photographer} Patricia Anderson Photography

What a busy week it's been here in East Grand Rapids!

I got to wrap up my week on Thursday with adorable 6 day old Maggie who was my model for my newborn props that I've listed for sale on my on-line storefront (,  as well as some great bonnets and hats that were sent to me by my AMAZING vendor, Petunia and Ivy (Click on her name to check out her on-line store!).

Here or some of her pictures from the shoot!  I'm currently offering newborn photography out of my home until I find the perfect studio :)

The hunt is still on!

I never knew that looking for a new photography studio in Grand Rapids, MI would be harder than finding one in Chicago!

Lucy and I have been spending our mornings walking, driving, and cruising around the Grand Rapids area trying to find that perfect spot to call home for my next studio!  It's definitely a great sign that small businesses are thriving in the area - all the shops and boutiques are filled with small stores and awesome restaurants and breweries!  Grand Rapids really seems like a great place to be, even though my studio in Chicago was probably as perfect as it gets :)

East Grand Rapids sure seems like a wonderful place to set up shop!  I read an article the other day that East Grand Rapids was voted one of the top 10 cities to raise a family in, which was very reassuring!  Between Rose's Restaurant, The Lifestyle Kitchen Studio, and everything in between, I'd love to be somewhere in that mix!  I have myself on a waiting list as soon as a space comes open, but for now, I'll just have to be patient :)

We drove up to Rockford and Ada to check out their downtown areas this morning - both are absolutely adorable!  Along with looking for a great studio, I've found some really great places to live in that area, once that time comes when we'll need a bigger house!

If anyone has any leads on a great retail space in the area, feel free to shoot them my way! I can't wait to get out there and start photographing some newborns!
