Roberson Extended Family

What an absolutely wonderful family!  I had a blast working with this crew.  The weather was great and all the kids were so good!  I have known Leigh for about 8  years.  We were first introduced in a women’s networking group.  I randomly bump into many of the women from that group all around Fort […]

Leena’s Newborn Portraits

In the last weeks of a pregnancy through the first year of a child’s life, things change so fast.  Maybe this is why it seems like just yesterday I photographed my sister’s maternity portraits. Ms. Leena arrived June 4th and looks just like her sister, Everly, in so many ways.  Last week, I did Leena’s […]

Caldwell Extended Family Portraits

These are my favorite family pictures of all time!  I might be a bit partial…because it’s my family.  Take it from me, planning an extended family portrait is worth the time and effort.  While it may be difficult to coordinate outfits, schedules, and you can count on at least one person being hangry, it is […]

Frankie’s Senior Portraits

Senior portrait season is in full swing.  Frankie is a senior at Columbia City High School.  This was such a smooth session and Frankie was an absolute pleasure to work with. I’m pretty sure his face could be used in advertisements.  I had such a hard time picking out my favorites because there were so […]

Hunter’s Senior Wrestling Portraits

Sports were a huge part of my high school career.  Sports kept me surrounded by people with good values, taught me discipline, and humility.  I played a variety of sports in high school and enjoy playing sports today.  When I get an opportunity to photograph senior sports portraits, I get to combine my love of […]

Winter Family Portraits in the Snow

Winter family portraits can be tricky.  It is all about timing and a little bit of luck.  The perfect recipe for family portraits in the snow is a fresh snow (at least 3 inches), no wind so it sticks to the trees, temps between 20-32 degrees, and a flexible schedule.  These family snow portraits were […]

Family Portraits with “Old Ed”

Old Ed has been in my husbands family since it’s original purchase.  Old Ed is a 34 Dodge Brothers.  Over the years my husbands dad, uncle, and grandpa worked on the truck between farming, full time jobs, and life.  Last year Greg’s dad and uncle sent the truck down the road to receive its finishing […]

Christmas Portraits, Columbia City Photographer, 1 year old portraits

Christmas One Year Old Portraits

I don’t do a lot of holiday themed photo sessions, but this could be changing!  My long time friend, Amanda, came up for dinner and a photo session.  I had a blast getting this set together for little LJ’s one year old portraits.  Amanda and I worked together to combine props she planned to use […]

Columbia City Senior Portrait Photographer, Senior portraits

Bryce’s Senior Portraits

I had the honor of photographing Bryce two times this fall.  His family had extended family portraits taken in early fall.  I was able to get him to smile, so his mom decided to schedule a short senior portrait session.  Bryce was thrilled!  Like many other senior guys, Bryce wasn’t super pumped to get his […]

Galbraith Kiddos

What beautiful children! The last time I photographed these kiddos was when little Vivian was a newborn. Oh how they have grown. Photographing children makes my heart swell… their carefree attitudes and innocence is something every adult could use a little more of. Here are some of my favorites. Galbraith Proofs
