Smith Extended Family Portraits

What a fun portrait session!  It is always fun working with extended families to get a group shot, but this group was especially fun.  This family had members traveling from all over.  A wedding in Fort Wayne was the initial motivation to gather in this area.  However, they decided it was a perfect opportunity to […]

1 Year Old Portraits

I love taking pictures of families, children, and seniors.  It gives me so much joy to set peoples minds at ease about their insecurities and the idea of being in front of a camera by taking flattering and fun portraits.  That joy is magnified when I can do it for the people that are closest […]

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 […]

Wissman Outdoor Winter Family Portraits

I love a family that is willing to brave the Fort Wayne winter weather for a family portrait session:)  Even though we didn’t have any snow, the pictures turned out beautifully.  I love a challenge and anytime you get 6 children under the age of 10 you have a photo challenge.  I had a blast […]
