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…

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…

Everyone loves fall family pictures but gosh, summer family photo sessions might just be my most favorite! The warm breeze, wildflowers, tall grasses, summer maxi dresses and cute baby rompers are hard to beat!! Kim contacted me a few months ago inquiring about a family session and after Covid-19 stay-at-home orders hit and then May’s rainy and cold weather, we had to push back the…

I’ve had the privilege of capturing Virginia and Elizabeth’s milestones since little Virginia was 4 months old. It is an absolute joy for me to watch these little ones grow and document each stage from baby rolls to sitting up, smashing first birthday cakes, and running freely in wildflower fields! Rain and cool temps postponed our session the first time but we had a gorgeous…

A great time to do a family session is when one of your children is having a birthday and you want to remember that milestone! The Michael family celebrated Ava’s 1st birthday right around the time of this gorgeous family summer photography session at Cool Creek Park in Carmel, Indiana and we met at 7am to capture these sunrise photos! …

If you don’t know by now, I’m super passionate about capturing sweet connecting moments with loved ones. Time goes by so quickly and a photo is a memory forever frozen in time to cherish long after. When you look at that image, your mind takes you back to that exact moment, the feelings, the smells, the emotion, the memories, and you are filled with warmth. I look at these…

I have been in search of wildflower fields for weeks in the Lafayette and West Lafayette area but either it is on private land or it is along a highway and not accessible. Finally though, I found the perfect place for a wildflower session for Virginia’s 9 month milestone photos and I could not be more obsessed with them! Not only was Virginia in great spirits…
