I’m an introverted extrovert. And although I’m a terrible singer, I love to chant my favorite songs – everything from T. Swift to hip hop – when I’m in the car! I love tiramisu and coffee with too much milk. Scarves are one of my must-have accessories! I’m addicted to design of all kinds – interior, landscape, graphic, food, fashion, all of it.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas! It has been so wonderful to soak in this magical season with our boys – decorating indoors and out, driving around to see lights, giving gifts to family, baking cookies for Santa, ice skating and so much more! They have no idea how much they make our days brighter! May your holidays be filled with joy and love and sweet memories! Merry Christmas, friends!
It’s crazy to believe that 6 years ago today we welcomed our second baby boy into the world! His due date was Christmas Day, however, like his older brother, he arrived 3 days early! And we got to bring him home from the hospital on Christmas Day! Emerson Ray, there are so many things we love and adore about you! You are compassionate, empathetic, sharing, silly, spunky, loving, always adding joy to our lives each day and to all those who meet you! You love spending time with your big brother, Remington, your family, your friends, in nature, snuggling, just being together. What a precious gift you are! We hope you’re having the best day at kindergarten, we can’t wait to celebrate with you tonight! Happy 6th Birthday, Little Love! xoxo, Mommy
The weather was sunny and 50 degrees, so with a little bit of bribery (#reindeercakepops), we ventured out for a super quick mini session! More from this day soon!
What fun it was to meet this beautiful – not to mention incredibly stylish! – family in downtown Indianapolis! They had planned a special family outing to celebrate the holidays, including a delicious dinner followed by an evening of festive musical entertainment on Monument Circle. And these days, if you’re getting dressed up, why not have it documented, right?! Would you believe that they saw friends pass by who were on their way to watch Michigan play? Scroll down to see! After a quick Google search, Michigan won the Big Ten Football Championship that day at Lucas Oil Stadium! Do you want to know something else? Before I got in to photography, I worked with Jim and his colleagues as an administrative assistant! Seeing him years later, along with his gorgeous, happy family was simply the best! Jim and Chris, thank you so much for asking me to be a part of your special day with your loved ones! Avery, Evann, Ben, Sydni and Nate, it was so great to meet you all! Wishing you a holiday season full of joy!!!
One of my many favorite things about my job is how connections are made! I photographed a senior client turned wedding client last fall as this beautiful barn, and had the honor of meeting with the owner, Jenny. She was so welcoming, kind, and I soon also learned a talented florist, and a mom of two. When she asked me to photograph her family last fall, it was such a dream! We met up again last weekend for more family photos on a beautiful fall afternoon at The Historic Ambassador House & Heritage Gardens, and it was the best time! Jenny, I’m so thankful that we connected last year! I admire you so much as a Mom and as a truly talented, creative individual and business owner! Hope to see you again soon!
Valerie and I connected years ago, in thanks to the wedding industry. And within a few years of meeting, she told me that she was expecting a baby boy, and I’ve had the sheer honor of photographing her family ever since! We have a lot in common as Mommy’s to two sweet, energetic, and oh so handsome boys! We had a lovely afternoon with sunshine for their fall portraits, and, of course they brought their sweet pups too! Valerie, Scott, H, M, Freenie and Tres, thank you so much for sharing your afternoon with me! Wishing you a wonderful fall season!
One of my favorite places to photograph my clients in the always beautiful Holliday Park!
