cole | indianapolis newborn photographer

I am so far behind on blogging it isn't funny. I typically use these cold Winter months to catch up on things like that, so you may be on overload with sessions coming up. First up is sweet baby Cole. I actually just took Cole's six month photos... That was the reality check I needed to play catch up. Cole was a dreamy little newborn with the most perfectly round cheeks. Big brother Weston did such a great job with him in photos! Congrats to Mom & Dad one another adorable baby boy! You can … [Read more...]

brett + josh – thorntown tree farm wedding

I got an e-mail from Brett almost two years ago.. I was only two sentences in & I knew I already loved her adorable self. It went along the lines of.... "I love your photos and we HAVE to have you at our wedding." Before that she had told me a bit of their engagement, how they are both book lovers, and that their dream wedding was in the works. We met up a few months later for their engagement photos which you can see here. This July I met up with them again for the most perfect Summer … [Read more...]

Bailey – 2014 Lawrence Central Senior

In all honesty I'm not really sure where to start on Miss Bailey... Extraordinary is the word that comes to mind. Read on and see how this amazing, god-driven young woman is making her imprint on the World through her own words. "My goal in life is to make a difference. I want to help people to live a full & happy life. To fulfill their potential." "I'd love to help others fulfill their potential whether that is through volunteer work, abecoming a developmental … [Read more...]

colleen & tyler’s snowy smores enagement.

I would like to start this post off with introducing you to Colleen & Tyler... aka the most awesomest couple ever! Tyler mandated at the end of their session that they from now on be referred to as such.. :) Good thing it's true! Don't even get me started on these two. They had me cracking up and acting a fool for the whole thing. We did their session right after one of Indy's famous "snow storms" this year. Sadly, we just missed the big chunky snowfall by about two hours! It still made for … [Read more...]

fall photos & a day at the fire department.

I look forward to seeing this family every year. I basically burn off some calories playing & chasing Tucker for smiles, and it's a win-win for everyone! It is SO crazy to me seeing how much they grow in just a year. He's turning into a dashing young man, and I know mom and dad are so proud! We did their normal family fall photos and went to visit the fire station (Tucker loves fire trucks!) We had a great time, and I think you can tell from the photos! A special thanks to the Carmel Fire … [Read more...]

Shelf Love : Blue Like Jazz

I had to put a small pause on some of my leisurely reading basically from May to October while studying for a boards exam... So, these posts kind of dwindled a bit as did my reading. I did put away four in the meantime, and am reading three more currently. For those of you just joining this segment - I love to read.. They say that isn't a bad hobby to have, but for me it is a very pricey one. I can oftentimes go through a normal book in a matter of one day. A few months ago I finally decided to … [Read more...]

the Wood family & a Georgia sunset.

I'm finally getting the Wood family's session up! They are sincerely some of my favorites. It's pretty amazing as a photographer when you've been there since the baby arrived. You get to see a family grow into something pretty amazing. I've known Jessica since high school and photographing her family is a great excuse to keep in touch! Which can be hard to do when everyone moves away from their hometown. Jessica and Blake were both so in sync during the session. It was almost comical hearing … [Read more...]

Disney Marathon Week – Coast to Coast!

Well, it's been a couple of weeks since Marathon Week. My legs are feeling normal, the numbness and blisters have left my feet - so, it's time for a blog! Jon and I decided last year that in 2014 we would try to get our Coast to Coast medal. Which essentially means you do races in Disney World and Disneyland within the same calendar year. Crazy? Maybe. Part One of our Coast to Coast challenge is over. We did the half marathon at Disney World this January and have the Half at Disneyland at the … [Read more...]

Brett + Josh | Engaged – Tree Farm Inspired Shoot

Back in late November I met Brett and Josh on one of our first frigid days of this Winter season! For engagement and family sessions (with young children) the cold temps always concern me.. My biggest worry is that they will be too uncomfortable from the cold to obtain genuine photos.. i.e. scary faces in photos, teeth clinched visibly - etc etc. I always check in with my clients the morning of their session to warn them of said temperatures, make sure they will be dressed appropriately, and to … [Read more...]
