at home in the Milwood neighborhood | Milwood newborn photo session

Madeline’s parents’ neighborhood is very important to them. It’s the Milwood neighborhood of Kalamazoo, a very family-friendly area with houses dating from the 1920s and 30s. It’s got lots of mature trees and well cared-for yards. Children their bikes and play games on the sidewalks. Madeline’s mom grew up there, and now lives  just down the block from her childhood home- in her grandparents’ former home! Milham Park anchors the south end of the neighborhood and they had their engagement photos taken there, so that’s where they chose to have their maternity photos done, too. We had an unexpectedly mild spring day and a beautiful sunny evening, perfect for walking around the park. A few of those pictures soon, but first, meet Madeline-
