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 […]

Outdoor Maternity Portraits

To think we were taking birth announcement portraits this summer…where does the time go!   Brittany and Jared are expecting their first little peanut Dec. 20th!  They are both so excited and I was just as excited to get some beautiful fall maternity pictures.  So many expecting couples pass up getting maternity pictures…these are the moments that […]

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 […]

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 […]

Senior Portraits | Paige

Outdoor senior portriat shoots are my favorite, however, you have to be prepared to deal with a lot of different variables like wind, changing light, bugs and the list goes on. The day we took these stunning senior portraits of Paige the wind was kicking at about 30mph in downtown Ft. Wayne.  We all agreed […]

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 & […]
