• It’s My Birthday – Giveaway!!!

    It’s my birthday!!! Not just any birthday… a big one… I’m 40 today! Eeeekk! When I was young, I thought 40 was like really, really, really old. Luckily now that I’ve reached this milestone, it’s actually pretty great and not as terribly ancient and I once feared. There actually a lot of perks! I can stay up as late as…

  • Golden Hour Magic

    This awesome family lucked out with an amazing evening! Once in a while, the most gorgeous golden evening light shines through to give our entire session a lovely glow. We played, laughed and took full advantage of the beautiful evening. I just adore watching this sweet family grow over the years. Their outfits are always perfectly coordinated, but not matching.…

  • Sunshine and Sunflowers

    When my amazing long time clients request a location with a barn, I started to become a little giddy. Then they arrived with extra sunflowers for the kids to hold and special birthday cupcakes for the girls birthdays. Eekkk! I might have squealed with delight! Correction, I did squeal with delight. 🙂 You see, these little touches make their session…

  • Modern School Portraits

    It’s back to school time around here in Indy. We’ve picked out our new supplies and backpacks. (Seriously, is there anything better than a box full of fresh new crayons?!?)  The kids are excited to see their friends and teachers. I’m excited to for pumpkin spice lattes and fall photos, including offering my new Modern School Portrait experience! What do…

  • Shoot Out with the Borrowed Boutique

    When I heard about this new business that rents gorgeous dresses and accessories, I couldn’t wait to check it out. Then I found out this boutique rental business was run by an awesome local woman (Emma) in Fishers, Indiana, I just had to check it out! The Borrowed Boutique hosted photographers and models in their beautiful space for a day.…

  • A darling first birthday!

    One of my favorite locations to celebrate a 1st birthday (or really any celebration!) is The Cake Bake Shop in Broad Ripple. So when Lucie’s Mom suggested The Cake Bake Shop as a location for our birthday session, I might have done a happy dance. The inside of the shop is cream, pink and sparkly, a perfect backdrop for a…

  • Hello Presley!

    I just love this family!!! First of all, Presley’s Dad was the best man at our wedding. I’m not sure if I have laugh-cried any harder than I did during his best man speech. Their little guy, Preston, is only a couple months older than my daughter, so Tara and I were preggos together. It was so much fun to…

  • Hello Emmett!

    It’s hard for me to choose what type of session I love best (because, I really love them all!!!) but meeting a new family in the hospital for a Fresh 48 session would have to be very close to the top of the list. For a Fresh 48, we ‘pencil schedule’ our session on the Mother’s due date. Then once…

  • Everyone looks adorable in a hat….

    When I came to meet this lovely family at their home for a session, the older girls meet me at the door with the most adorable hats! It was so great to meet baby Clark and his big sisters just adore him. It was a dreary Indiana day when I first visited my client’s home, but it cleared up enough…

  • Kinsley is One!

    I believe one year old birthdays are one of the most cherished birthdays. They grow and change so much in just one year! It is amazing to watch and a celebration for the parents and siblings too. This was true as we celebrated Miss Kinsley turning one. She was the happiest little girl at our session and her big brother…
