Christmas Family Portraits in the Barn

You would never guess by looking at these Christmas family photos that it was raining like crazy all day.  We were forced into the barn for portraits and boy am I glad, because these are some of my favorite large family pictures EVER!  There outfits couldn’t have been anymore perfect for the barn setting.  I […]

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, […]

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 […]

Large Family Portraits

Each year my in laws have a reunion, The Marrs Family Reunion.  Every reunion there are old photos displayed and new photos taken.  The photos taken are always quick snap shots of multiple different groups.  We have never really organized a nice large family portrait.  It’s silly really…the hardest part is coordinating a date and […]

Sue’s Family Portraits

More people need to have portraits taken with extended family members.  I’m not going to pretend like planning a large family portrait is super easy, but I don’t think you will find one person that will say they regretted having that portrait with grandma, kids, grand-kids, and great grand-kids!  I look back at some of my own extended […]

Gifting Family Portraits

Portraits are the best gift you could ever get your parents or grandparents.  When I’m deciding on what gifts to give my friends and family members I try to use these parameters: something unique, something they wouldn’t normally buy themselves, and something that is related to their interests.  Portraits are always unique because it has […]

Hindbaugh Family Pictures

Last week I had the privilege of photographing the Hindbaugh girls and their dad, Cory.  We had an absolute beautiful day minus the swarms of mosquitos!  The girls were a little leery at first, but loosened up after chatting about their favorite Disney movies (Frozen & Big Hero Six) and their 4-H pigs (Popcorn & […]

Spring Family Portraits

Spring has sprung…take a look for yourself!  This was my first outdoor family session of the year and it turned out beautifully.  This family is near and dear to me.  My husband coached the Sieger’s middle daughter in volleyball when she was maybe 12!  She has since graduated high school, college, and is married.   […]
