i adore this couple. from the instant that abby started emailing me her dress options for the shoot-i knew she and kevin would be *perfect* clients!!! we had an unbelievable evening with the absolute most gorgeous sunset. for me maternity sessions are an opportunity to document the overwhelming love between a couple as they patiently await the arrival of their little one! the way a couple melts into each other, laughs with one another, and gazes adoringly at their little one to be is so special!!! abby & kevin…i ADORED working with you both…enjoy some of my favorites from your session!!!!xo
this past fall was absolutely one of my favorites. i met *so* many new clients and i can’t believe how much i truly adored each and every one of them. this family will always stand out to me. i drove to their home outside of indy on a fall evening we weren’t sure would be gorgeous or not. colleen and joey were insanely laid back and miss charlie had the sweetest eyes and absolutely won the award for best hair! we roamed their property, talked about how they met, where/how they both grew up, and chatted a whole lot about the gorgeous property they lived on. colleen’s dad collected vintage bronchos…and to avoid truly giving one up…he had lent one to them. the photos in the back of it-wrapped in their family quilts-simply loving on one another are some of my all time favorite images. enjoy this sweet session!xo
i just *adore* these next two. if you are familiar with my blog at all…you may recognize them from emersyn’s newborn shoot; because she had the most stylish nursery ever…or back when i shot the two of them alone when eme was only 6 months. julie & i became friends years ago while teaching together and hers is a friendship i could not do without. she made the decision to stay at home with emersyn this year and it has made for so many more playdates that make my heart happy!! eme is one of the sweetest, most timid little things around…and her voice is just the cutest!!! enjoy some of my favorites!! xo
the koorsen family was another new family last fall that i just looooved working with. elizabeth and scott were beyond affectionate with one another and their adorable sons. i always say that for me-it is *the best* to simply stand back and document a family loving on each other and this next family did. just. that. this was their first time getting professional pictures taken and elizabeth had mentioned that she truly wanted these pictures to reflect everything she and scott had given up (sleep-ha) to make their boys happy and all of the little things about her boys at the ages they were-the stubbornness, the playfulness, etc. i think we captured all of that and more!!! enjoy a few favorites from their session!!!xo
i absolutely *adore* this next family!!! having return clients always means SO much to me!!! they know me-how i operate & what to do to make a session great!! and i know them…what they want out of their session and how they operate!! it is SO fun to see kids grow from year to year!!!
all of you in IN know this fall has been AMAZING!!! truly. for the first time ever i understand what allll the fuss about fall actually is about!!! 😉 this night was fall perfection…and this family made it all the more perfect!!
if there was an award for the *BEST* smiles…i am pretty sure they family would get it!!! i went to HS with mike…and the “thacker smile” was very well known! mike found a sweetheart in allison-and she is as gorgeous on the inside as she is on the outside!! kate couldn’t be any cuter!!! she has personality for days…a smile that is absolutely contagious…and an energy that might never run out!!! 😉
here are a few of my favorites from their session!!! xo
