For any outdoor session, the weather is ALWAYS a factor. I want my clients to have the best weather possible for their sessions. Sometimes that means rescheduling, but sometimes that means taking a risk to get something extraordinary. For the Brundidge family’s session last fall, Jennifer and I were texting back and forth practically every hour, leading up to the session, wondering if we should…

Honestly, I’m honored by every single senior who chooses me to help celebrate this incredible year in their lives. But, I’m especially honored when someone from 1.5 hrs away reaches out about booking a session with me for their senior photos! That was Ryane, a 2022 senior, I am featuring in this urban senior photos post! Last year, Ryane and her mom made the drive…

Maybe it’s because I just don’t love the cold and dreariness of winter, but I can’t stop going back to look the Isenbarger’s beach family photos at Indiana Dunes last year. (Although I was born in Minnesota, I think I might be a warm weather girl at heart!) This post is especially for my Midwest friends. But the beach is too far away… Have you…

I have some exciting but bittersweet news to share.  In August 2024, our family’s journey will be moving us to Greensboro, North Carolina! This announcement is SOOO bittersweet, considering the incredible memories we’ve made here in Indiana over the past 7.5 years.  Two of our 3 kids were born here.  Brian completed his PhD here.  We bought our first house here.  We started our photography…

Whenever life is hurtling obstacles my way, I’m typically a “just-watch-me-overcome-and-persevere” kind of person rather than a “it-must-be-a-sign-the-universe-is-trying-to-tell-me-something” kind of person. It’s probably stubborness! (Just ask my husband or parents…) So when I tell you it took three tries to get the Armentrout’s family photos at Indiana Dunes this past summer, you’ll understand that I was going to make these beach photos happen no matter…

Family of 5 with 3 young kids sitting in the sand at sunset at Indiana Dunes.
Gosh, it’s been cold here! I just opened up my spring and summer 2024 calendar, so I’m already getting excited for warmer weather so I can start shooting outside again. During these coldest days of winter so far, spring and summer still feel a long way off. But my booking calendar always keeps me thinking months ahead! Although it’s only the second week of class…

This month I am celebrating 5 incredible years in business as a photographer! Woohoo! Honestly, I can’t even believe it some times. Some days it feels like I’ve been doing this forever, and other days it feels like I just started. I just want to say that I’m beyond grateful for every client who has entrusted me with their family’s most precious and defining moments…

I’m obsessed with everything about this incredibly fun Christmas Tree Farm Family Session with the Samples family! Amazing location.   Sweet kiddos.   Adorable family. Lots of love & connection. Everything that photographers dream of for their sessions! The Samples family made such great Christmas memories at Homestead Pine Tree Farm for their Christmas trees farm family session this year!…

I’m thrilled to share the joy and cuteness of this minimalist floral cake smash session to celebrate Fiadh’s recent first birthday! As a photographer who specializes in capturing priceless moments, let me tell you – cake smash sessions are the epitome of fun and frolic! I love these photos of Fiadh and her parents SOOO much, but can I be honest for a sec? Getting…

I recently had the incredible opportunity to shoot a branding session for the talented vacation planner and travel blogger extraordinaire, Devyn! From brainstorming travel itineraries to crafting unforgettable experiences, Devyn’s passion is planning epic getaways and finding hidden local gems. And she definitely knows what she’s doing! How do I know? Because Devyn travels 100% of the time! Can you imagine?!?! As someone who has…
