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.

Fall Family Portraits | Shriners

This family holds a special place in my heart…we not only have become great friends, but they have been influential in helping my husband & I grow in our faith.  There aren’t too many couples that I can say we “do life” together, but this is one of them!  Kelli was in need of some family pictures for Christmas cards and some updated shots of baby Reid.   Yea, I know he isn’t a baby anymore, but Reid will forever be known as “Baby Reid” in our household.  Even though getting his portrait taken was not at the top of Reid’s list of things to do Saturday morning, the pictures turned out great! Follow this link to see the entire outdoor family portrait session.

Outdoor Senior Portraits | Molly

Tis the season for senior portraits.  Fall is one of the most popular times to shoot senior portraits because of the mild temperatures and of course the beautiful color.   I had the pleasure of photographing Molly for Columbia City High School senior volleyball banners back in August.  I was lucky enough to have her mom reach out to me for a senior portrait session.  I shot Molly’s senior portraits this past weekend at Swinney Park in Fort Wayne, In.  A recent rain storm and some strong winds took a lot of the areas color from the trees to the ground, but Swinney still had some excellent color.  I had several new poses I wanted to try and Molly was a perfect test subject :).  Check out Molly’s entire senior portrait session here.

Senior Portrait Session | Mackenzie

Fall color was in full swing 2 weekends ago and the weather was perfectly mild with a chance of rain of course.  I had outdoor senior portraits scheduled right about the time a storm was going to move through our area.  We bumped the pictures up by 30 minutes and that was all we needed.  You would never guess we were trying to beat an eminent downpour by looking at these senior pictures.  Mackenzie and her family were champs the entire time!

We started out back in the woods and captured some of my favorite fall, woodsy senior pictures!  90% of the successful shots were due to my beautiful model, Mackenzie…and 10% was the gorgeous surroundings 🙂  We then moved to the barn and photographed tons of fun and beautiful shots.  No sooner than we walked in the door to my home studio the rain unleashed!  We couldn’t have cut it any closer.  We finished up inside with some natural light and studio portraits that tuned out great too.  Thank You Mackenzie and family for being so flexible and allowing me to photograph your senior pictures; I hope you fall in love with them as much as I did 🙂  Follow this link to view the entire outdoor senior portrait session.
