Galbraith Family 2018

It was a hot one for the Galbraith Family, but you wouldn’t guess it by looking at these beautiful family portraits.  I always have a lot of fun photographing this family.  I’ve known this family for so long, it is like photographing family.  I remember when each of the Galbraith boys were born!   For this […]

Herman Family Portraits

To say it rained on the Herman’s portrait day is an understatement!  It was like a monsoon, but you wouldn’t have known by looking at these pictures.  We made the best of the time and chose to dodge rain drops.  We used the Grand Wayne Convention Center in Fort Wayne, to shoot the majority of […]

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 […]

Large family portraits, Columbia City Photographer

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Meinika Family Portraits

I have known the Meinika/Trier Family for about 10 years.  Before all of us had kiddos of our own we would go on huge family vacations with The Meinika Family.  They are blessed to have a very talented photographer of their own among the family; that is why it was even more of an honor […]

French Family Portraits

I love photographing larger family groups!  Jenny contacted me about family portraits and I was thrilled at how excited she sounded about being photographed out at our place.  I think our woods and barn are fabulous, but I also understand that it isn’t the style some are looking for and that is okay.  This family […]
