The Martin Family

The Martin Family was a blast to photograph.  I know this family personally, so that is always fun!  The Martin girls are the exact same age as both of my kiddos and are often in the same class from year to year.   I am absolutely in love with their family portraits.  The colors look great […]

Marissa’s Senior Portrait

I love when I have the opportunity to photograph seniors that I have photographed as children. There is a small amount of pride that I feel as I reflect on the young men and women they have become. I know it is nothing like what the parent feels, but in some small way I’m so […]

Caldwell Extended Family Portraits

These are my favorite family pictures of all time!  I might be a bit partial…because it’s my family.  Take it from me, planning an extended family portrait is worth the time and effort.  While it may be difficult to coordinate outfits, schedules, and you can count on at least one person being hangry, it is […]

Galbraith Kiddos

What beautiful children! The last time I photographed these kiddos was when little Vivian was a newborn. Oh how they have grown. Photographing children makes my heart swell… their carefree attitudes and innocence is something every adult could use a little more of. Here are some of my favorites. Galbraith Proofs

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 […]

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, […]
