In September of 2012, I was contacted by the St. Baldrick’s Foundation (childhood cancer charity) to photograph a VERY special boy (and his family) named Matthias. You may recognize this foundation for their head shaving events. Matthias was chosen to be ONE of FIVE of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation Ambassadors for 2013 because of his journey with cancer. At 3 1/2 months old Matthias was diagnosed with retinoblastoma in both eyes and had to undergo six months of chemotherapy treatments and various other procedures. Because the tumors were vast and growing, he had to have both eyes removed before his first birthday. Now, he has the most beautiful set of prosthetic blue eyes and lives a cancer free life full of joy and adventure. Read more ›
If you’ve been following my blog over the past several years, surely you’ve seen this family. They are a large family whom travel down every year from Ft. Wayne for a photo session. I’m proud to say, we’ve grown to know each other fairly well. I know each kid’s unique personality which is pretty cool. It’s been fun to watch them grow as a family. I first photographed them as a family of five, then as a family of six with the adoption of precious Lilah, then as a family of seven with the adoption of Thomas…. and then as a family of eight with the birth of Maggie. Whew….. that’s a lot of kids and a lot of LOVE. What I NEVER intentionally updated or announced though was a very sad event….. Last year (a year ago from today) sweet Lilah went to be with Jesus after becoming suddenly ill. It was too heart breaking for me to discuss at the time and I felt as if I did, I was exploiting their family’s personal business on my blog. Read more ›
There’s no denying this baby girl is divine. Her creamy soft skin combined with vibrant red hair make her a standout star! Loved meeting this family. I am so excited to go see them again this weekend. I can only imagine how much “H” has grown in four short months. This might be one of the best perks of my job! Read more ›
This is part II from the maternity session. Baby “E” completes their adorable family of four.
We started this summer maternity session bright and early at 8am and low and behold I was home by 9am! That almost never happens as I have a tendency to over shoot. But everything we wanted was captured in one short hour and it just so happened to be close to home!
First shot is my favorite. Life as a family of three was about to be rocked by the addition of their beautiful daughter – come back Wednesday to see those photos!
This next senior photo session was with a lovely young lady who is the step-daughter of my former boss. It doesn’t seem quite possible that she could be in her senior year. I have no doubt she’ll soar in her future. The sky is the limit.
She has the full package….. great heart, great hair, and a great figure. Read more ›
I don’t market or shoot a ton of senior photography. But when the opportunity does come my way I find it so very refreshing. To have my client actually listen and do what I ask is like a breath of fresh air (versus my toddlers).
The young lady below was just a natural and I enjoyed every second with her! Thanks! Read more ›
These peeps are our old neighbors, the Meuniers. They lived just a couple doors down from us for about one solid year before moving back to their roots in southern Indiana. In the short amount of time I knew them, THREE things clearly mark their personalities and hobbies.
- Reading. Paula was seldom without her Nook, even while outside.
- Biking. Rick took the kids biking nearly every weekend on a nearby trail.
- Engineering. Both parents are engineers by trade. So it seemed only necessary to include some of their loves.
Once again, I’m going back to June. I met this first family last November for their newborn photo session, right after the babies were born. They inspire me so much! Two sets of twins! Nuf said! They are amazing parents with such beautiful children. I actually had the chance to photograph them a week ago for their ONE year photo session so come back soon to see them! Read more ›
Hello again in blog world. I know I’ve said it before but THIS time I have my business partner (the hubs) to hold me accountable to blogging by doing the LEG work (hard work) for me. I am a good year behind in sessions and will never be able to play catch up completely but will for sure share some from the year.
Below is the Bezy family whom I’ve been privileged to photograph three times now. Once at their home, once at the apple orchard last fall, and again this summer. Their youngest has grown so much since June!
