high school sweethearts + 3 beautiful kids {sukurs family}

this next family…adore.  i normally work with little little ones…which made this session with older kids sooo fun!!!  charlotte, jack, and natalie were just awesome-no other way to put it!!!:) allison and chad were sooo wonderful to work with-and all in all-working with families like this one makes my heart super happy!!!

the day we were supposed to do the shoot it was POURING!!!  but-the forecast said we would have an hour or so window free from rain-so we decided to go for it.  the sun literally came out just for the shoot…and started again the MINUTE we finished!!!;) we walked all around their family property-their home away from home and just walked and talked.  we ended the session in the old barn-which holds lots of memories for this family- one being that it was where chad proposed to allison!!:)

allison & chad-you have three of the most beautiful kids (inside and out) and when i got home from hanging out with your crew i told kevin how excited i was to watch our kids grow and explore the world in whole new ways with them-because of you all!!  i LOVE the smiles and the love between you all!! thank you for asking me to be the one to capture you all this year!! xoindianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_westpark_applesandhoneyphotography_0156indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_westpark_applesandhoneyphotography_0157indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_westpark_applesandhoneyphotography_0158indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_westpark_applesandhoneyphotography_0159indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0160indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0161indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0162indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_westpark_applesandhoneyphotography_0152indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0163indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0164indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0165indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_westpark_applesandhoneyphotography_0153indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0166indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0167indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0168indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0169indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0170indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_westpark_applesandhoneyphotography_0154indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_westpark_applesandhoneyphotography_0155indianapolis_zionsville_family_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0171

beautiful chaos {malenkos family}

i have one goal in mind when i photograph families; to capture something real.  i believe that when most families desire photographs of their family it is for a purpose…needing updated images on their wall…holiday cards…document ages…etc.  all of this is fine and great-but i SOOO hope that instead of giving clients what most would deem “holiday card” worthy-they end up with so much more.

i want clients to look through their gallery and see their lives exactly as they are right in this moment of time.  that amongst all of those things that feel so very imperfect comes something that actually is perfect-realness.

the realness that little ones don’t always cooperate, clothes don’t always stay clean, hair doesn’t always stay put…but that none of that matters much at all.  because in my mind-you never get that day-when you spent an hour together, devoted to loving one another, back.  that day when your littles clung to you instead of turning towards a camera. that day when they wanted to run like little wilds instead of sit calmly.  that day when you and your husband still chose to gaze at each other with such adoration because heck-you brought these littles into this world and if you don’t stick together-they will eat you alive.  all of that my friends-THAT is real and THAT is beautiful.

this was the type of session where eugenia looked at me when we finished shooting and she was sure that there was no way we could have captured anything worth while.  i explained that while they were ready to go home and have a drink…it was absolutely not a session that had me stressing.;) justin and eugenia-william and andrew are precious and i absolutely looooved spending the evening with your sweet sweet family.  i soooo hope that you read the words above and that when you look at your photos you feel something truly special!!!  xo

Love on the water {barry family session}

this next family is simply wonderful.  that is all i can really say.  mimi & jim…your laid back attitude and ability to just slow down time and love on each other was so much fun to capture!  and gus…just *wait* until you see his heart-melting, completely contagious smile!!!!

when mimi sent me a picture of what she hoped gus would wear for the shoot…i just knew we had to have boats around.  my sweet friend, stefanie, suggested that i shoot at eagle creek…and it could not have been more perfect!  (except, of course, that there might have been a giant jazz concert going on right next to where we were attempting to have this sweet, intimate, little family photo shoot!;))…but-you do what you have to do and this family…they were absolute troopers!!!

we did this session back in june and i left for vacation and never blogged these beautiful pics!!!  oops!!  mimi-this is another one of my favorite sessions and i feel BEYOND honored that you asked me to capture your BEAUTIFUL family!!!!!  it truly meant the world!!!:) i am sooo excited to get some of these images up on your wall!! xo

precious little one {evelyn newborn session}

I absolutely loved spending the afternoon with this sweet family the other week.  I met Kendall and David when they were expecting their first baby and their maternity session is absolutely one of my favorite sessions to date…go check it out here if you haven’t seen it yet!  :)

Everything about working with Kendall and David for their maternity session was so wonderful…that I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of their precious bundle!!!  Sweet Evelyn entered the world and was welcomed by two parents who already loved her so very very much!!!  Again, with every newborn lifestyle session-I LOVED being welcomed into Kendall and David’s home; to see the special touches they had put on the nursery for their very first baby, the relaxed feel of the session, the knowledge that we were in their comfort zone and they could simply be.

Evelyn was one of the most awake babies I have seen in a while-awake babies can be so cute!!!  She also wanted to eat constantly and be near mom.  Kendall-you are a natural…already selfless and willing to give whatever your little one needs.  David-you are smitten…as any good dad should be.  I hope you love the photos from this session and that they will always help you to remember this special time in your lives.  xoindianapolis_zionsville_lifestyle_newborn_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0080indianapolis_zionsville_lifestyle_newborn_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0062indianapolis_zionsville_lifestyle_newborn_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0058indianapolis_zionsville_lifestyle_newborn_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0056indianapolis_zionsville_lifestyle_newborn_photographer_applesandhoneyphotography_0057these two pieces have special meaning…and i loved that kendall incorporated them into evelyn’s nursery!!  the bunny picture was in her grandpa’s room when he was little and the song was sung to kendall and her brothers by their great grandma when they were little!  such special touches!!
