McKernan Fall Portraits

I’m from southern Indiana and try to make it home to visit at least once a month.  Many of my friends still live around the area and occasionally they will reach out for portraits.  Brandi and I were babies together.  Our mom’s were very good friends and still are today.   It is a special […]

Beautiful Family Portraits

Chelsea and Nate are great friends of ours!  Nate and my husband have had some great fun on the Gator back in these woods.  The same woods that they use to romp around in were transformed into a beautiful backdrop for their family portraits.  The day was absolutely perfect for pictures.  The neutral color pallet […]

Sheets Family 2016

I shot a family up at Cook’s Apple Orchard last fall and it was my mission to shoot at the same location in the spring when the apple trees were in full bloom.   We had such a wet spring, it was difficult to plan any shoot outdoors let alone time it around the apple […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
