Check Out These Baby Blues

I can’t think of a better way to start off Mother’s Day weekend with anything other than a mother/son photo shoot.  6 month old Elliot must have known how much this portrait session meant to his mom, because he was a perfect angel!  Elliot’s eyes will make anyone melt; these baby blues are the highlight […]

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.   […]

The Face of Your Business

More and more professionals like dentists, chiropractors, attorneys, and real estate agents are using their image to market their company and/or practice.  There are many benefits to using portraits in your marketing campaign, however, if not done right portraits can give your business a bad “image”. I recently did a business portrait session for my […]

Time for a New Business Head Shot

I have been wanting to update my head shot for a while now.  I was having a decent hair day and liked my new spring sweater so I convinced my husband to take a couple minutes out of his day to snap a couple new professional head shots.  Another reason I wanted a new professional […]

Pictures For A Cause

I was recently asked to take some environmental portraits to help raise awareness about a wonderful fundraiser.  It amazes me the amount of funds and heightened awareness that is brought to situations, businesses, or a cause when a few highly influential men and women get together!  I had the privilege of photographing Co-chairman, Mr. Don […]

Photo Invitations

My other passion besides photography is graphic design.  Every time I send out invitations for an event I get to combine my love for photography and graphics.  My son turns 3 on April 7th!  We are fortunate enough to still have many of our grandparents (our children’s great grandparents) with us, so our birthday parties […]

Printing Photos from your Phone

As a photographer I carry my Nikon D600 with me frequently, but I don’t have it all the time.  I always have my phone on me.  Have you ever looked at how many photos you have on your phone?  How many of those pictures are priceless photos of your children, parents, grandparents?  Have you ever […]

In Home Newborn Sessions

Newborn pictures are probably one of my favorite portrait sessions.  However, they are the most unpredictable because you are at the mercy of the baby.  There is a lot of adjusting that goes on in the first month a newborn is home.  Getting dressed and keeping up with laundry become difficult; leaving the house becomes […]

Family Portrait Outfit Ideas

A beautiful location and experienced photographer can all be ruined by an outfit choice.  That is why I discuss what theme or feel the family envisions for their family portraits before the photo session.  After having this conversation I can pick out a suitable location in the Columbia City or Ft. Wayne area and bring […]

Newborn Session Preparation

Newborn sessions are some of the most unpredictable photo sessions.  You are at the mercy of the baby and the sooner you accept that, the better :).  I plan for 2 hours for every newborn session.  There are very important steps that parents can do to ensure a smooth newborn photo shoot. To the Parents […]
