Christmas Family Portraits

This family won a gift certificate, and I’m so glad they did!  Their perfect mild day turned into perfect Christmas family portraits.  Formal family portraits outdoors can be tricky sometimes…Soggy ground, heals, crisp white dress, and wind are always a concern, but all of the risk paid off.  Vicki and her family were great to work with and her kids are gorgeous.  Here is one of my favorites and follow this link to view their entire session.

Portrait Day Meets Game Day

Who says you can’t combine the two!  The Gardner family is a divided family, to say the least, when it comes to rooting for sports teams, but that is all part of the fun.  The heckling is some of the finest that I have ever experienced he he 🙂 Roll Tide, Hooo Hooo Hooo Hosiers, O-H-I-O and the list goes on.  This family is near and dear to my heart, we have vacationed with one another, heckled each other, and celebrated together.  There is never a dull moment with this group.  Take a look at their game day meets portrait day shots.

Little Norah

Last weekend I had a fun shoot with 7 week old little Norah (I love the name :).  This little one was stylish, to say the least, with her little red Chucks, her fancy Christmas dress, and precious cream sweater dress.  It is safe to say that we wore her out.  By the end of the session little Norah couldn’t even keep her eyes open.  I even talked mom and dad into getting a shot.   You two have a beautiful little girl and thanks for coming out for a photo session!  Here are some of my favorites.

Elliot’s 1 Year Pictures

This little man just turned 1 and he is on the move!  I think the only time he sat in one spot is when we got the cake out for cake smash portraits.   I photographed Elliot for his 6 month pictures and I’m still in love with those beautiful blue eyes!  This 1 year old session was filled with all sorts of fun.  We had several outfit changes (check out the cute overalls) as well as some fantastic cake smash pictures.  Elliot has such a wonderful personality and it is a joy every time I get to photograph him!  Thanks Brittany for the opportunity to capture these precious moments.  Check out the entire one year portraits session here.

Outdoor Maternity Portraits

To think we were taking birth announcement portraits this summer…where does the time go!   Brittany and Jared are expecting their first little peanut Dec. 20th!  They are both so excited and I was just as excited to get some beautiful fall maternity pictures.  So many expecting couples pass up getting maternity pictures…these are the moments that become distant memories once the baby is born and that is why I encourage all couples to get maternity portraits.  Brittany is 33 weeks in these photos…yea I know can you believe it!  Her bump is so stinking cute and she is gorgeous.  You would never guess we were shooting between rain drops, dodging 20 mph wind gusts, and a brisk 43 degree temp!  Take a look at Brittany and Jared’s entire maternity portrait session here.
