Shriner Family Portraits 2018

I’m in love with the Shriner’s family portraits this year…I mean they are great every year, but there is just something about this year.  We had such beautiful color this fall and the leaves stayed on so much longer than in years past that I think the combination of a beautiful day, beautiful scenery and […]

Julia’s Senior Portraits

Julia’s first senior portrait session was rained out, so we rescheduled for about a week later.  Julia wanted fall color and boy did we have it.  I think it was almost a blessing that we were rained out the first session, because within that week the color of the trees reached their peek!   Julia is […]

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

Johnson Family Portraits

I love photographing large families! I love families that take the time to get together and coordinate for a beautiful family portrait. While the hours leading up to the session may be stressful, once everyone is together, ready, and the funny jokes start everyone loosens up a bit. This family was absolutely fantastic to work […]

Amanda has been my best friend since high school and it is always a great time photographing her and her family.  Her brother and sister are practically my siblings and there is no holding back when we all get together.  Amanda contacted me to do a sibling/extended family portrait session as a gift for their […]

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 […]

Apple Orchard Family Pictures

What a perfect time of the year to photograph in an apple orchard.  We chose Cook’s Apple Orchard in Fort Wayne, IN for the location of Madison’s family portrait shoot.  I had visited this orchard during a field trip with my son’s class and the owner was very welcoming and the orchard was beautiful. Madison […]
