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 […]

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 & […]

Spring Family Portraits

Spring has sprung…take a look for yourself!  This was my first outdoor family session of the year and it turned out beautifully.  This family is near and dear to me.  My husband coached the Sieger’s middle daughter in volleyball when she was maybe 12!  She has since graduated high school, college, and is married.   […]

Christmas Tree Family Portraits

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree…Get into the holiday spirit with a family portrait session at a Christmas tree farm.  I’m not the only one who thinks this is a fantastic idea.  The Galbraith Family portrait was featured on Shutterfly in an article about great ideas for family portraits. Just 6 weeks ago I was […]

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 […]

Pursley Fall Portraits

Best for last…the Pursley family was my last fall mini session of the day.  The lighting was probably the best it had been all day and their portraits turned out wonderfully.  I don’t think their little girls could get any cuter!  Thanks Gwen and Randy for allowing me to photograph your family…again 🙂  I hope […]
