the kelsey family.

I was introduced to the Kelsey family by past clients of mine. I love it when that happens. I know since a previous client is referring them the odds are even better that I'll like them just as much and have even more new friends! That proves itself to be true again and again. What is even MORE bizarre is the Kelsey family used to live down the road (like seriously one house down) from where we currently live now here in Indy - and our paths are just now crossing! Wild, right? Pretty cool I … [Read more...]

Wildflowers Workshop | Tennessee & me

I'm not really sure where to start here.. So, I'll just begin by saying that I am officially starting this blog post today (December 17th). I suspect it might take me several days to finish it, that it will be very very long, and by the time it posts it will give all of you an inkling as to just how difficult this experience was to put into words. I've given a lot of thought as to what exactly happened two weekends ago in Tennessee. I did not sign up for a photography workshop necessarily to … [Read more...]

Ellen – One Year | Indianapolis Child Photographer

Another one of my Grow With Me Kiddos is a whole big ONE year old. (Cue the sobs... Sad, I know.) You can see the evolution of sweet Ellen here. Happy One Year, big girl! Ellen is always so photogenic it is just crazy. She is naturally super curious of her surroundings and that usually ends up getting us some pretty phenomenal photos! I love that last little series! Isn't she the cutest thing! I'm going to miss seeing her every few months for sure. :( … [Read more...]

Reid | Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

Oh little Reid... (Who isn't so little anymore might I add?) I keep up with my littlest clients on Facebook, so I'm kind of glad I'm blogging this today. I'm going to pretend he is this wittle bitty again! It's really sad, but once they graduate that first year with me I really really miss them! It's like seeing them every few months makes me feel like I was a part of their big picture in some way! Any-who.. Simon and Amy you might remember from their maternity session here. You also might now … [Read more...]

Hannah – 8 Months | Indianapolis Family Photographer

Little Hannah actually just turned ONE! I'm a little behind on blogging, so regretfully her 8 month photos will just have to do. She is one of the most expressive little girls I have ever photographed. I definitely feel like from time to time she is giving me the stink eye... She also really really likes when I talk to her in my "scary" voice... So, I'm not sure what that says about me - clearly not very scary.. Enjoy her myriad of faces! :) If you feel like a blast from the past you can see her … [Read more...]

Sophia | Indianapolis Family Photographer

I got to see sweet Sophia again last month for her *big* one year photos! I have a love/hate relationship with these sessions... I love it because it really is amazing seeing how they evolve into these tiny people. I hate it because I never exactly know when I will get to see them again. The first year is so fun to watch! I'm very very lucky to be a part of these milestone with all of their families. ¬†Click here to see her 6 month session! Is she not something else? I told mom & dad I … [Read more...]

The American spirit & NYC.

This blog must have timed itself for the bigger picture. I wrapped up all of the California blogs, the new website launched, and it just kind of works out for this one to be posted today. Most of my New York trip with the hubs was for the purpose of attending some of our good friend's wedding and celebrating. Of course the two of us had small lists of things we'd like to visit while in town. We decided to drive to New York instead of fly. Therefore allowing us to see more of the Country and make … [Read more...]

Oh look… It’s winethirty. {Napa}

Heyyyyy oh!! This is the post I've been waiting for. I love wine. (Probably like the majority of you do.) Because of Celiac Disease I may even love it more than some of you. For a long time wine was really my only option. I've been dying to visit Napa for several years, and April's California trip allowed that to become a possibility. Literally as soon as we checked into The Vintage Inn we were off to our first winery. The Vintage Inn was fabulous by the way. An added bonus was that they used … [Read more...]

If you’re going to San Francisco wear some flowers in your hair.

After a few days in LA we headed out for a little road trip up to San Fran. We had never made the drive before, and thought it might give us an opportunity to see some of California's many landscapes. We arrived at the Argonaut hotel for our one evening planned to spend in the city. It's such a neat nautically themed hotel. I kind of have a thing for anchors, so I was really digging the decor. We had a long list of things to do in the very short amount of time we were spending there... So, as … [Read more...]

I’m going going, back back, to Cali Cali

Yes.... I know I was just there. So, I typed this lengthy blog post yesterday... The doofus that I am accidentally towards the end hit the wrong button and deleted the entire thing! My patience has worn thin on this one, so I'm breaking my April California trip into three posts. Pretty fitting since I actually took my real camera and took real pictures. We also visited three different areas of California so I might as well. We tried to cram a lot into our last trip out West because neither of us … [Read more...]
