I had the privilege to photograph these two beautiful little angels this past weekend.  It took some convincing and a little bit of princess talk, but Kinsley came around and had no problem getting in front of the camera.  Kloey was ready to go as soon as she saw my furry rug she got to sit on!  Because it was so cold, windy, and spitting rain we stayed indoors for their photo session.  I typically shoot with natural light, but the studio images of the girls turned out absolutely stunning!  They are some of my favorite studio portraits.

There is something special about taking pictures of siblings and seeing their interaction with one another.  Kloey, 2 years old, and Kinsley, 3 years old, were so fun to work with and reminded me of my two little ones together.  At this age kids move so fast and it is easy to miss the brief connection between siblings, but the camera helps to slow that down and capture those moments.   Kloey  looks up to Kinsley so much and these portraits display that is such a subtle way.   I have to give a shout out to Mom for providing such cute clothes:)  My angelic vision would never have been possible without those beautiful dresses.

Senior Portraits | Paige

Outdoor senior portriat shoots are my favorite, however, you have to be prepared to deal with a lot of different variables like wind, changing light, bugs and the list goes on.

The day we took these stunning senior portraits of Paige the wind was kicking at about 30mph in downtown Ft. Wayne.  We all agreed that people pay big money for that “wind blown look”, so let’s make the best of it…  A little wind wasn’t going to stop Paige from having a blast with her senior portraits.  By making the most of the situation we were able to capture some of the most beautiful portraits I have ever taken.  Paige is as beautiful inside as she is out and her fun-loving, carefree spirit really shines through in this portrait session.  Thank You so much for being a great subject and I hope you enjoy your senior pictures as much as I did 🙂

Take a look at some of my favorites.  Click on the following link to view Paige’s entire outdoor senior picture session.

Julie contacted me several weeks ago about family pictures and senior portraits for her not so willing son.  See…Julie is a smart lady!  She knew how much her oldest son didn’t want Senior pictures, but she also knew how much her boys loved her and wanted to make her happy.   So, like any good mom she bargained…Instead of a full blown senior portrait session they compromised on a family portrait session with the possibility of snapping a couple individual shots of Rylan, the senior.  Good thing Rylan didn’t know how persistent I was before he agreed to his mother’s terms he he:)!  All kidding aside, the Sutton family is the most laid back family I have ever photographed.  I was prepared for a challenge and while I did have to sing some songs and make a couple fart jokes the Sutton’s were great!  I hope you enjoy their high-end outdoors family portrait & senior picture session as much as I did.  Check out the entire Sutton Family Outdoor Portrait session here.

Large Family Portraits

Each year my in laws have a reunion, The Marrs Family Reunion.  Every reunion there are old photos displayed and new photos taken.  The photos taken are always quick snap shots of multiple different groups.  We have never really organized a nice large family portrait.  It’s silly really…the hardest part is coordinating a date and time when everyone will be there.  That part was already done a year in advance so almost everyone in the family is there.  This year I sent out a message about a week before the event letting everyone know that I wanted to get a huge family portrait at the reunion.  I sent this image and told everyone to wear something that matched (portrait color scheme of blue, white, grey, khaki).  These are colors that everyone will be able to match without going and buying a new outfit.

Here is the result…These are some of my favorite pictures that I have ever taken probably because it is family, but also because it was a victory to have 40 some people looking pretty darn good!family pictures, large family picture, extended family picture, Columbia City family photographer, Ft.

Senior Sports Banners

For the past several years I have shot, designed, and printed the Churubusco senior football banners.  This year I had the opportunity to do banners for the Columbia City senior volleyball players.  I absolutely love the finished product and had to share.  Each team has a custom designed banner that matches their school colors.  This year, for the football team, I added a filter to give the guys that rough, tough look.  There were two managers and a senior cheerleader for the team so I applied a much more feminine filter for the ladies.  Take a look at each of the designs below.

Sports banners are a great way to recognize the last 4 years of athletic accomplishment.  The banners are 2ft. x 3ft in size, printed on outdoor grade vinyl, and metal grommets around the edges.  If you have a group of senior athletes that you want to recognize by printing a senior banner contact me today.
