Brittany and Jared have become good friends of ours and I was soooo honored when they asked me to take a couple pictures to announce they were expecting their first little peanut!  They brought the cute little onesie and we paired that with some of my props for a cute birth announcement mini portrait session.  This is the first birth announcement portrait session I have done and I absolutely love the results.  From looking at the portraits you would never guess that Brittany was feeling a bit ill and we were all swatting swarms of mosquitoes.  Thanks for the opportunity and being great sports!  I hope you like your first portraits as parents to be:)

Norah’s 1st Dance Recital Portraits

dance recital pictures, dance portraits,

My children attend daycare in Fort Wayne.  Their daycare provide several opportunities for kids to participate in extracurricular activities.  What makes these extracurricular activities different than usual is that the kids participate in them while they are at daycare.  It is great for the working parent that want their children to be involved in fun activities, but struggles with wanting to spend as much time as possible with the kiddos.

Norah has been involved in Kinder Dance through Carepointe Academy for the past several years.  The only downfall to her participating at daycare is that I don’t get to watch and I had no idea how much she enjoyed participating.  This year we will be attending Norah’s 1st Dance Recital:)  She brought her costume home and I couldn’t believe how excited she was about the recital!  Of course we had to get pictures…  So without further a do here are the portraits from Norah’s first dance recital portrait session.

A big thanks to KinderDance and Carepointe Academy for offering this at our daycare!  I love to watch how excited she is when she comes home and shows me her moves.

I had the privileged of photographing my brother-in-law and his colleagues at Wilcox & Associates.  Wilcox & Associates is a Sandler Training Franchise located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. They are committed to Sales Training, Management Training, Sales Consulting, Hiring Consulting, Pre-employment Testing and Sales Force Evaluations.  They are a group of forward thinking professionals dedicated to growing the bottom line of your business (who doesn’t want/need that?)  You may not be the right fit for them and equally, they may not be the right fit for you. What their team does is challenging, out of the box and thought provoking. What they do takes resources, specifically: time, effort, energy and investment of dollars. The only way to figure it out is to have a dialogue.  Check out Wilcox & Associates facebook page and help them get to their goal of 1,000 likes!

Our goal was to have Wilcox & Associates business portraits represent the work hard, play hard, out of the box thinking that they are known for.  We had a blast and the pictures are just proof.  The group business shots are some of my favorites and the individual head shots turned out great too.  Thank You Wilcox & Associates for the opportunity!  View their entire business professional portrait session here.

“I had never seen Carrie’s photography work before our company photo session.  She was recommended by someone that I trust.  I can say that upon seeing the finished work I will DEFINITELY be using her again.  Carrie has a great personality that she used effectively to get the shots she needed to make us look good.  I’m impressed with the quality and the artistry of the shots.  If you are thinking of using her, I highly recommend her!” – Jim Wilcox, Owner Wilcox & Associates

My Favorite Senior Portraits

What a way to kick off the 2015 senior portrait season!  This was my favorite senior portrait session I have ever done.  Sam’s unique, edgy style made for unique, edgy and beautiful pictures.  This session was packed with tons of variety from batman pictures, to outdoor portraits, pictures with her truck, and we finished up in the barn!  Sam was open minded and so easy to work with; she made my job easy!  It was sooo hard to pick my favorites so be sure to check out the entire senior portrait session.  Below are some of my favorite portraits from Sam’s session.

I can’t think of a better way to start off Mother’s Day weekend with anything other than a mother/son photo shoot.  6 month old Elliot must have known how much this portrait session meant to his mom, because he was a perfect angel!  Elliot’s eyes will make anyone melt; these baby blues are the highlight of his 6 month baby pictures.  Well his eyes and his love for soft blankies.  Other than visiting my mom and spending time with my kiddos, this baby boys picture session was the best part of my weekend.  What a beautiful display of a mothers love for her child!  Check out Elliot’s entire 6 month portrait session here.
