Baby Titus

And then there were 5…

Friends of ours had their third baby boy last week.  Little Titus was so handsome and looks just like his brother Eli, it is almost scary!  This rambunctious family of 5 kept me on my toes and the result was beautiful.  We photographed everything except the kitchen sink.  My primary goal was to get some fabulous newborn portraits of Titus, because Becca didn’t have the opportunity to do so with her other 2 boys.  In addition to the newborn pictures I was able to get sibling portraits, some pictures with dad and some darling mom and newborn shots.  Becca, it takes a special woman to live, feed, and love 4 boys…yes I included Justin her husband 🙂  I’m so happy for you both, you have a beautiful family and I’m blessed to have the opportunity to capture these special moments.

Sue’s Family Portraits

More people need to have portraits taken with extended family members.  I’m not going to pretend like planning a large family portrait is super easy, but I don’t think you will find one person that will say they regretted having that portrait with grandma, kids, grand-kids, and great grand-kids!  I look back at some of my own extended family portraits and reminisce about those that are no longer with us, admire how much the little ones have grown, and laugh about how much hairstyles have changed.

I recently shot an extended family portrait of Sue’s family… Sue is the beautiful gal in the middle of this crazy, fun family.  I had a great time photographing this diverse group in Pokagon State Park.  With children ranging from newborn to teens…there was a lot of commotion and bribing to get all eyes on the camera.  In the end, all of the portraits turned out beautifully.  Check out their entire session.

Hindbaugh Family Pictures

family portraits, children pictures, sibling pictures, Ft. Wayne Photographer, Columbia City Photographer, natural light family portraits,

Last week I had the privilege of photographing the Hindbaugh girls and their dad, Cory.  We had an absolute beautiful day minus the swarms of mosquitos!  The girls were a little leery at first, but loosened up after chatting about their favorite Disney movies (Frozen & Big Hero Six) and their 4-H pigs (Popcorn & and Pokey I think).  By the end of the session they were singing “Let it Go”.

There is something so special about a father daughter portrait sessions.  Take a look at these pictures of two beautiful girls and their proud dad and you will know what I mean!  (Thanks Sarah for the helping the girls look soooo stinking cute:)

Newborn portraits are my favorite type of pictures to shoot!  This handsome little guy just confirmed why I love newborn photography.  He was perfect for his photo debut.  Even though Deacon was several weeks early you would never know with that head full of hair and his content nature.  Here are some of my favorites…to check out Deacons full newborn portrait session click here.

Kaler Family & Maternity Pictures

Two rambunctious boys and one on the way…this family maternity portrait session was packed full of laughs, bribes, and good times.  Our outdoor portrait session got rained out, but we made the most of an indoor session and captured some great candid portraits of the Kaler family.  Even though this is Becca’s third pregnancy, she has never had maternity pictures before…CRAZY RIGHT…she is waaaay too cute not to get maternity portraits.  I had a great time and we captured some wonderful moments that I hope the Kaler’s will cherish.  Check out their entire family, maternity portrait session here.
