I have been so thankful for the families I have met solely through this work of mine. I adore this family, and if it weren’t for photography, I don’t know if our paths would have ever crossed. But they did years ago, and for that I am grateful.
I was so excited to get to photograph this sweet family at Richwood on the River. As a storyteller photographer, children and families are my favorite people to have in front of my camera. And when the kids are this cute, it just makes my job that much easier. :)
I absolutely love when I get to photograph families year after year. It’s fun to see little ones change through photos, and I am honored to get to help document these seasons. This sweet family was no exception.
If you’ve been around here for any amount of time, you know that this family is a regular favorite of mine. I love getting to mark time with their family photos and their sweet girl’s birthday photos every year. I am FOREVER thankful for the three of them.
I absolutely love motherhood and getting to photograph it, and I absolutely love this session. These two melted my heart from the minute we began.
OH THIS FAMILY. They make my heart smile. :) These three fit who I am as a photographer, and when you find people like that to photograph, you never let them go.
I am so thankful with every opportunity to photograph this sweet family. From their engagement to their wedding to their family sessions since, I have loved every chance I’ve had to photograph them.
I have adored this family from day one. When asked to come back and photograph them again, I may have literally JUMPED at the opportunity. Can we talk about this house for a minute? 😍
We are celebrating our sweetest girl’s golden birthday this year. This year, more than ever, we are fully aware that each birthday is a precious gift. We will never be sad to see her grow up, even if we wish we could sit in these moments with her just a little longer. She is quickly […]
Every one-year-old should be celebrated with cake and photos. In fact, every birthday should be celebrated this way! I am certain that all mommas would agree that our babies grow and change so quickly. So, really, documenting each year with a birthday session (and some sweet treats) is nothing short of necessary! Avery is a […]
As a children’s photographer, I was SO excited about photos for this family. I was honored to photograph this family in their beautiful home shortly after they became a family of four. It was only a few weeks after Winnie was born, and I felt a beautiful kinship. And now, they are a family of […]
Shooting birthday photos is something I love to do. Babies – no matter the age – are always so much fun to celebrate. Olivia made her debut in front of my camera when she was only about 24-hours old, and here we are, one year later! Olivia, it was a joy to celebrate your birthday […]
Callie and her momma and daddy are some of my favorite people to photograph. I love celebrating her birthday with her every year with our annual birthday session – this year, she turned THREE, and I had so much fun shooting these photos. Sweet Callie is so much like my Winnie – they are less […]
I never have adequate words after photographing this family. My heart is always so full. This time it was just baby boy and his momma, and it was one of my favorite sessions to date. I have the best, most beautiful friends. I can’t help but love these images of little Avery… even when he […]
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.
Meet Nathan. Nathan is a high school senior who also happens to be one of my favorite high school kids everrrrr. It doesn’t hurt that he comes from the best. But this guy IS the best. We had so much fun shooting these photos, and he made my job easy with that cute wittle face […]
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 […]
Meet Mitch. Mitch is a high school senior this year, and this guy is one of the good ones. I had the best time with him, photographing him at one of his favorite places, Christmas Lake Golf Course. I made bad jokes, asked him to do ridiculous things like walk laps around a tree, and […]
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 […]
Meet Katelyn. I couldn’t deal with how much I loved shooting these photos. Kate is a PHENOMENAL singer, dancer, and musician. She wanted to incorporate some of her talents into her session, and it was SO much fun. And then there’s the fun fact that she’s BREATHTAKING. Katelyn… thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. Thank […]
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 […]
The boss and I celebrated our 12 year anniversary this year. We knew we wanted to spend this day with the best of friends in one of our favorite places. This was our first Gatlinburg trip with Winnie, and it was great to share this time as a family. She may look like she enjoyed […]
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 […]
Meet Kyler. We had so much fun wandering the streets of New Albany, taking her senior photos – the longer we live here, the more I love this place. So! Beautiful!! Kyler, GOODNESS. I had so much fun taking these photos with you. You are the sweetest and funniest, not to mention FREAKING GORGEOUS, and […]
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, […]
Meet Alex. Fun fact: we actually bought and currently live in Alex’s childhood home. She’s gorgeous and fun and I want to shrink her and keep her in my pocket always. We shot her photos at Mt. St. Francis. Indiana has a special way of showing off every Fall. Seriously, Alex. You. Are. B-E-A-UUUTIFUL. Alex, […]
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 […]
Meet Jacob. Jake. Jakey. Mr Cutie McCutie. (he told me he didn’t care what I called him, so there you have it) I absolutely loved hanging with this guy and his sweet momma. They are close to our hearts, and it was so much fun to get to photograph him. Also, I don’t know when […]
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 […]
Meet Hannah. I had entirely too much fun photographing her senior photos! She is from Northern Kentucky, so for her to come to Southern Indiana so that I could be her photographer for this special time? That honor is not lost on me – I. adore. her. We shot the first half of her images […]
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
Meet Brennan. When your client is a cutesy wittle teddy bear and you tell him all about it, you might get a reaction like this one… This one is a FAVORITE. That smile kills me in the best ways. Brennan, you are the best. I loved taking these, and as much as you don’t want […]
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.
