Alex & Lex The sun had played peek-a-boo all session long, but as Alex and Lex settled in on the parking garage wall with the beautiful Indianapolis cityscape behind them, the sun gave us its very best lighting to capture the photo I had been dreaming for them. Backdropped with the city that has given […]

The Cable Family Walking onto this Fishers Family session, I couldn’t help but smile. Throughout all our communication leading up to this, Emily had been so encouraging and trusting in my vision. “I know I’ve told you a million times already but I really am so excited for our session with you! …and that’s saying […]

The Davis Family My mom and I were taking branding photos in the alley behind my house. Harper was napping inside, and the monitor was cranked up to full volume so we wouldn’t miss anything she might need. As we finished up the last of my photos for my website, a mini-van stopped in the […]

The Leckie Family “Why are you guys talking for so long?” Rowan asked after the session. “Because that is what adults do,” his father Danny quickly responded. I couldn’t help but giggle a little at the honest question of this three year old, but I was so grateful for the family session that turned into […]

Did the people walking by think we were crazy? Maybe. Did Brianna get her workout in for the day by climbing a wall? Yes. Did we get precious mommy and me photos with a beautiful background? Absolutely! Brianna definitely modeled an adventurous spirit, strength, and a roll with the punches attitude for her adorable son […]

“Is it ok if I bring our bubble machine as a last resort for my son to open up?” My answer will always be yes! Kaitlin is the most prepared mama I have ever met and her preparation for this session was no exception. Even with the tips and tricks I have up my sleeve, […]

I mean, why else would they have followed me down the grass hill, across the uneven terrain, and over to the beautiful white […]

“I have never gotten a professional picture like that of my son’s smile.” My heart stopped and I had to hold back the sweet tears that were starting to form in my eyes. Peyton snuggled up in his mama Erien’s arms and flashed his radiant smile. The moment. Caught on camera. One that I can […]

You’ve booked your session, you’ve scheduled your date, and you are ready to start planning your outfits, but where do you start? How do you begin? No one told you this could be so stressful! Coordinating, not matching? Different, but cohesive? What does that even mean?! No worries, friend– I’ve got you covered! Take a […]
