Southern Indiana has been so good to me this year. The colors and the weather and the families I have photographed have all come together so PERFECTLY. And this family is no exception. I ADORED our time together. And GOSH THESE KIDS. 😍 SO! CUTE! But is it any surprise that the little ones are perfect […]
I can’t believe this guy is already one! Photographing this family time and time again is my favorite thing.
I love this sweet little family, so getting to photograph them two times in just a few weeks time was so much fun. THIS KID. Oh my word. Sheffield family… thank you. Again and again, thank you. I so very much loved taking these, and I am so excited to call you all friends.
When I last photographed Jason and Kelsey, they had just met their sweet Olivia. Now, that sweet newborn baby is a beautiful 7-month-old, and she is one of the cutest things I have EVER seen. Pettys… as always, thank you. Olivia is entirely too cute – baby girls are a dream, and I am so […]
I have loved photographing this family over the last couple of years – it is always an honor and a gift to get asked to come back again and again. :)When Robin asked if we could shoot at 410 Bakery, the place where these three have a weekly breakfast date together, I was SO excited. […]
The Green family. I am honored every time they ask me to do this, and every time we get together, it’s like getting together with old friends. Because at this point, that’s exactly who they are. We met years ago, but as I’ve gotten to photograph them since then, having them in front of my […]
The Nantz family. Three of the very best. I’ve been so honored to get to photograph them a few times over the last year, and as Avery gets older, it just keeps getting better and better. They are the very definition of kindness and friendship – we adore them. Plus, hello. Logan is a total […]
As a family photographer, I love these four because they are so easy to photograph! As an individual/mom/wife of a minister, I love these four because of a list of reasons too long to include here. And I know I’m not alone in being left overwhelmed with their kindness and their love. They are just […]
You guys know that I am ALL about a themed party. From our Mad Men Christmas party to my girl’s Jimmy Fallon first birthday (apparently I never blogged that?), I LOVE a good theme. So, when Emily told me that this party was going to be Parks and Rec themed, you KNOW I was IN! […]
As a family photographer, I have the happiest, most beautiful clients. The Smiths are always laughing, smiling, full of joy… they are the kind of people you meet and then wonder, “where have these two been all my life?” Their sweet girl, Mattie, was a star. Whenever a client asks about bringing their dog, my answer […]
They say when you meet the love of your life, time stops, and that’s true. What they don’t tell you is that when it starts again, it moves extra fast to catch up. Two years ago, this day was a true Labor Day for me. Here we are two years later and learning more than ever […]
2 Years Last year, I recapped this girl’s month-to-month, and I loved doing it. I contemplated keeping that trend going, but this year went by so quickly, she’s turning two before I even got my feet on the ground. It’s hard to believe she’ll be two on Monday. This last year was so full for […]
As a lifestyle photographer, photographing a family game night is something I get VERY excited about. And this game night was no exception. The Scrabble tiles were placed and the smack talk was handed out left and right. These are my people. :) Maybe it’s because they had me laughing the entire time, or maybe it’s […]
My favorite kind of photos are lifestyle photos, and my favorite kids are these kids. So to put the two together is a dream for me. This is the second part of my recent Boone County Library session. My girl crashed this half, but together these two are too cute, so I think it all works […]
I cannot believe it’s this boy’s birthday month. And the fact that his baby brother is already SIX months?? I’m beside myself right now. We took advantage of the double milestone to not only photograph each of these cuties, but also to shoot a few family photos (you know I love this crew and take […]
As a photographer in Southern Indiana, I limit the family sessions I shoot. This isn’t because I don’t absolutely love photographing everyone I come across. It’s simply because connecting with my clients in a special way means my work will be my best. Amber and Jewel are exactly the kind of family I love to […]
I adore this family, as you probably know by now. We shot Callie’s one-year photos in this same place last year, and it’s crazy how fast a year goes by. It was so much fun and such an honor to get to shoot this sweet girl as an almost-TWO-YEAR-OLD! I’ve learned firsthand that toddlers aren’t usually […]
The cliche is true: they really do grow up SO fast. I just shot Jack’s newborn photos, so I can’t wrap my head around the fact that we are getting ready to celebrate this little guy’s FIRST birthday! I mean, I knew that Winnie had found a way to time-travel (because there’s just no actual […]
Some people imprint on your heart, and no matter the years or miles traveled, they are always a part of who you are. Meet the Bogels .We started their session in their GORGEOUS home, which happens to include a library, which happens to now be on my dream home list of necessities. Also, for those of […]
As soon as I met them, I knew I was going to love Logan and Hugh. They are two of the most genuine and most caring people, and I am so thankful to know and photograph them. When Logan suggested shooting at the site of their future homestead, I was more than excited to do […]
I’ve had the privilege of knowing this incredible family for a number of years now, and I’m here to tell you that they’re about as amazing as it gets. We shot at Mt. St. Francis, and Southern Indiana turned up the volume on its fall colors this evening. They are the definition of perfection and […]
This sweet family is one of my favorites and has been for years. It all started with their engagement session that was centered around Cincinnati sports – at that moment, I knew I’d love them forever. :) And then, when I was SHOT BY A FIREWORK, and they didn’t run from my drama ;) …. well, […]
THESE TWO. Oh. my. word. I was lucky enough to photograph their engagement and wedding, and now I can add their one-year anniversary to our list. I love it. Chris and Stephanie:: thank you for having me, again and again. The honor truly is mine, and I am forever grateful for the two of you.
I never have enough words to convey how incredible my clients are, and this family is no exception. This is the third year I have spent October 14th with this amazing crew, and I am SO thankful. For lifestyle sessions, I always suggest doing something together as a family. It can be something complex, like […]
You guys, I just have to share how much I am LOVING this season of my business. Leaving the wedding industry was a tough choice, but it has been THE BEST CHOICE. I’m not “quitting” weddings indefinitely (I am currently excitedly counting down to my next one, later this year!), but I am basking in […]
No words, just photos – I can’t describe how wonderful these people are.
(the”hot dog dance” in action) (telling us a story) she sings along with me this beautiful girl changed our lives and our world
Ok, so this sweet little man turned two in MAY. I might be a bit behind.Not only is he two, but he also had some pretty big news to share. This photo is one of my favorites. GOSH, I LOVE THIS BOY! Best buds for life, and for that, I am forever thankful.
I think a mark of a great family is the ability to have to schedule and reschedule a session approximately 427 times (thanks to weather), and then show up and knock it out of the park as if you’re all just a bunch of models and you do this all the time. That’s basically what happened with […]
What better gift is there for a mom than photos of her babies? I think this crew had the best idea for their mom for Mother’s Day, and I was excited to help them out with it. I absolutely love how she adores her baby brother! Oh my gosh, this guy and that heartbreaking stare! […]
I can’t believe I will only do this three more times before I am writing a big, first birthday post. I know I’m getting way ahead of myself here, but the time is passing oh-so-FAST! This girl of ours changes and does something new every day, and we can’t get over it. Her little personality […]
Seven is over halfway to twelve. We are over halfway through our first year together. I don’t know why that first year seems like such a milestone, but this sweet girl makes all of the “I can’t believe how fast this is going” cliches so real. It’s just hard to believe that we have had seven […]
If you’ve spent any time around this blog, you’ll know that these three are familiar faces and very much loved clients. I photographed Ryan and Brittany for their engagement and their wedding, and I had the privilege to photograph Kinsley before her big birthday and again right after. I am completely honored each time they come […]
This family is near and dear to my heart. I first met Stephanie and Bobby at their engagement session. When they wanted their engagement photos to be at the Reds stadium, I knew we’d be fast friends. Then, at their wedding, I saw their families and friends love them and celebrate them, and I felt […]
This is a milestone month for this momma, and I’m having a difficult time processing it. On one hand, I love how our girl is growing. She’s changing almost daily, learning and trying new things. She’s been rolling from her tummy to her back for a while, and she’s on the precipice of rolling from […]
FIVE. (insert sobbing) … I can’t fathom that this is true. Someone alert the media, I’ve discovered time travel. I know I went to bed with a newborn last night, but somehow, she’s only a month away from being half a year old. HALF OF ONE YEAR. But we’re not going to talk about that […]
Oh my gosh, it just gets better and better. When I made the choice to stop shooting weddings full-time, I was nervous about taking on more sessions. I’ve declined most over the years, and I didn’t know if I’d still enjoy them. BUT, GOODNESS, HOW I ENJOY THEM. And, in a true Southern Indiana way, […]
GOODNESS. There aren’t enough words. Not only are they five of our most favorite people, BUT LOOK HOW CUTE THEY ARE. Also, let me tell you a little bit about how amazing they are to work with. We scheduled this session in hopes of shooting a Christmas card photo, which means the date wasn’t super […]
No. No, no, no, no. There is no way we have already had another month with this sweet baby. It was seemingly overnight that she grew and is no longer all arms and legs. She has some serious weight to her and is starting to outgrow some of the 0-3 month clothes that she JUST started […]
Oh my word, three months… it’s literally unbelievable. November was a month full of milestones from sitting up (for only a few seconds, BUT STILL) to rolling over, which means she is done with tummy-time – every time we put her on her belly, she just rolls right over onto her back. She’s actively working […]
I am so in love with these three that it’s silly. You’ve seen them around more than once, and I couldn’t be happier about that. They keep getting cuter with time, so I can only hope that I get to continue documenting their lives for years and years to come. You guys… at this point, there’s nothing […]
Ok, I’m annoyed at that title alliteration. BUT STILL. This family is our favorite, and these are some of my favorites from their session we shot earlier this fall. OH! This baby boy and those beautiful blue eyes! Did I mention we shot these in my backyard? (…I spy an Elliott)
I keep checking and re-checking the calendar because I just cannot believe that we’ve already had two months with her. October was a busy month, with lots of developmental changes for her (including the real smiles that we can coerce out of her, lots of chatter and cooing, and scooting her little self across her playmat). It […]
I was not given the gift of eloquent speech or the ability to write beautifully. That being said, I’m not going to pretend that I can describe this last month to you… there aren’t words to adequately share how greatly our lives have changed. This baby of ours has brought a light we didn’t know […]
Words to come later, for now…. photos!!! Loius
I can’t handle how cute and perfect this sweet family is. (look at her little hand on her hip – I’M DYING!) And his little hand on hers? OH MY GOSH! Something about this photo of her is killlllling me in the best way. Andres family, I LOVED taking these photos for you. You are […]
Yes, that title is familiar, but those last photos were in preparation of his big O-N-E, and these next photos are of this ACTUAL one year old … *cue the “you’re growing up too fast” tears*. I can’t get over how fast a year can go by. From this to the photos below in the LITERAL blink […]
I’m sure you remember this photo from the last post, and I think I’ve finally figured out what this little guy was all kinds of excited about… “YES. CUPCAKES!” His momma brought him a sweet treat for a quick little “cake smash” to celebrate his big birthday. You guys, it doesn’t get any cuter.
