Alysse’s Maternity Portraits

My sister and her husband are preparing for their first child.  I’m so excited for her and can’t wait til their little Everly Anne arrives!  Maternity portraits are best taken between weeks 32-36.  Much before 32 weeks and your baby bump isn’t prominent enough and after 36 weeks you begin to get uncomfortable.  Let’s be […]

Our Family Picture 2015

Each year we do a family picture in the fall for our Christmas cards.  For the past several years my husband has participated in a fundraiser to raise awareness for men’s health called Movember.  This involves shaving his facial hair into a creepy mustache for the entire month of November!  Therefore, it is my personal […]

Family Maternity Portraits

It’s an exciting time when a family is growing.  It is easy to get caught up in busy schedules and the preparation of a new baby.  I try to think back to my 2nd pregnancy and there are many details that are just not there because I was preparing to welcome a new baby, while […]

Christmas Family Portraits

This family won a gift certificate, and I’m so glad they did!  Their perfect mild day turned into perfect Christmas family portraits.  Formal family portraits outdoors can be tricky sometimes…Soggy ground, heals, crisp white dress, and wind are always a concern, but all of the risk paid off.  Vicki and her family were great to […]

Portrait Day Meets Game Day

Who says you can’t combine the two!  The Gardner family is a divided family, to say the least, when it comes to rooting for sports teams, but that is all part of the fun.  The heckling is some of the finest that I have ever experienced he he 🙂 Roll Tide, Hooo Hooo Hooo Hosiers, […]

Little Norah

Last weekend I had a fun shoot with 7 week old little Norah (I love the name :).  This little one was stylish, to say the least, with her little red Chucks, her fancy Christmas dress, and precious cream sweater dress.  It is safe to say that we wore her out.  By the end of […]

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 […]

Sutton Family Portraits

Julie contacted me several weeks ago about family pictures and senior portraits for her not so willing son.  See…Julie is a smart lady!  She knew how much her oldest son didn’t want Senior pictures, but she also knew how much her boys loved her and wanted to make her happy.   So, like any good […]
