summertime and the livin’ is easy.

Feels like we've been having a heat wave here in Indy and I am certainly not complaining! The balmy temperature has put me in the mood to share this sunshine-y/happy couples session. I had a fantastic time hanging out with Tiffany and Kyle. Any chance I can chat with folks my own age about travel and such I'm a happy camper. Please enjoy their beautiful images - they are as beautiful on the inside as out! Aren't they both just adorable together?! Good thing I wasn't shooting film … [Read more...]

summer snuggles with three beautiful girls

This Summer I got the chance to meet a stunning group of girls. We decided to do their session beneath the shade of a willow and I'm really glad we did. These three girls have hearts of gold and when each of them smile it's like a sunshine! We had a great relaxing morning running around the banks of a river bed and just playing together. Enjoy! Sweet little, Korinne is just as precious as can be. Just the sweetest, kindest and most gentle little girl you'll ever meet. I love this photo … [Read more...]

Introducing King Henry of Broad Ripple!

King Henry has turned one!!! I had the pleasure of spending a warm summer evening with the coolest family in the history of forever. We hit up some of our favorite spots : including a local vegetable garden, monon trail and other various venues that we all frequent. Enjoy this enchanting Summer session. I'll be dreaming of peach shake ups now.. This little guy is going to be *trouble* for all of the future females of the World. Make sure to check out his mom's shop on Etsy *Little … [Read more...]

Cole Turns One!

Can I get a hip, hip hooray that the blog is finally fixed?! Now to take care of a serious backlog! Sweet "baby" Cole turned one this Spring and as always I was so fortunate to be there to document this milestone. I know you'll enjoy this session as much as I enjoyed taking them. I looooove that last one of the boys :) It's my party and I'll cry if I want to! I have a special place in my heart for this couple. As beautiful on the inside as they are on … [Read more...]

choosing mercy

"People were created to be loved. Things were created to be used. The reason the World is in chaos is because things are being loved and people are being used." I've been radio silent for awhile... Primarily on the blog here. Not entirely my fault as my hosting company is struggling to fix an issue with posting images from sessions through a software I use. ┬áThat is still a work in progress and I am hopeful they will get it resolved soon (Like today! Come on guys...) . ┬áBut, that's not the only … [Read more...]

Fall day with the Tapak Family!

I got to spend some time with the Tapak family this Fall celebrating year one for Mr. Beck! Big sister Lillia was more than happy to oblige in a few photos as well. Like always, had so much fun with this family - but... the proof is in the pudding. Am I right? See below for yourself! :) All that sass in this little bitty girl! I absolutely love it, and Lillia always entertains me thoroughly. Doesn't hurt that the girl can't take a bad picture, period! Beck's little personality … [Read more...]

Reid – One Year

The morning of this shoot was just on the brink of a cross between cold-lukewarm weather. Thankfully, the sun came out and gave us a brisk but pleasant morning. Reid could not have cared less since he got to play with a ton of fun things (playgrounds, barns, antique gas pumps - I mean what more can a boy want?) This family was so fun to spend the year with and I really enjoyed watching Reid grow into this cute and bubbly little guy!! OMG that little face! Simon and Amy are the most … [Read more...]

Shelf love – playing catchup.

This is going to look all kinds of bad... But, I don't care. I've been so busy getting out galleries and working on upcoming blog posts that I haven't done one of these in awhile. So, when I went back to my Goodreads to see what books I had read and their chronological order - I was slightly disturbed. I guess I felt like I wasn't reading a lot since last year, but when I went back for this purpose I found I had read an insane amount actually... Two of my months (June-August) were heavily … [Read more...]

Dalton – Year One!

Ohhhh Baby Dalton... I say baby loosely here! Dalton turned one this Fall and he's already almost bigger than me. I'm almost done wrapping up the sessions from this Fall, and this one was so much fun. You can see Dalton's newborn photos here. We spent some time in a local nature park for the session and I have to say -- this is the *MOST* Indiana's leaves have cooperated for one session. Couldn't have been more perfect. Mom & dad graciously let me squeeze … [Read more...]

Have a good day, no matter what.

Welp.. I lost my voice about three days ago. Pretty sure I'm going insane since for the most part I can only have thoughts running through my head and carry on conversation within the confines of my mind. I'm losing it.... I figured I might as well write a blog before I go crazy. Another year is in the books. Man, they just keep moving faster and faster. 2014 was completely insane. On a personal note my husband and I just had SO many big changes in store that we had no idea about. We BOTH ended … [Read more...]
