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 […]

Outdoor Senior Portraits | Molly

Tis the season for senior portraits.  Fall is one of the most popular times to shoot senior portraits because of the mild temperatures and of course the beautiful color.   I had the pleasure of photographing Molly for Columbia City High School senior volleyball banners back in August.  I was lucky enough to have her mom reach out to me for […]

Senior Portrait Session | Mackenzie

Fall color was in full swing 2 weekends ago and the weather was perfectly mild with a chance of rain of course.  I had outdoor senior portraits scheduled right about the time a storm was going to move through our area.  We bumped the pictures up by 30 minutes and that was all we needed.  You would never […]

Laurisa’s Fall Senior Portraits

Earlier in the year I had the opportunity to photograph Laurisa for a senior volleyball sports banner, which resulted in a session for senior pictures.  It is senior photo sessions like Laurisa’s that reinforce my love for taking portraits. We had a beautiful day to shoot these fall senior portraits and Laurisa was amazing to […]

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 […]

Clifford Sister Portraits

I had the privilege to photograph these two beautiful little angels this past weekend.  It took some convincing and a little bit of princess talk, but Kinsley came around and had no problem getting in front of the camera.  Kloey was ready to go as soon as she saw my furry rug she got to sit on!  Because it […]

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 […]
