Cheyann - Senior

What a perfect day! I took the day off today from my job as a membership director and spent the day doing two of my favorite things - spending time with my daughter and taking senior portraits for a beautiful girl. The day started here with Cheyann, who is a McCutcheon High School senior. Two short years ago, I met her mom with her older sister. I was so happy to have the opportunity to work with this family again. Cheyann was such a natural and a lot of fun. Thank you so much, Missy and Cheyann! As I thought, it was hard to narrow it down tonight. I hope you like the sneak peek!

Robert and Sarrah - Engaged!

A week ago, I met Robert and Sarrah on Purdue's campus for their engagement photos. We had perfect weather that day (which seems to be extra hard to come by this spring). Purdue played a big role in Robert and Sarrah's romance. They will be getting married in the fall in Indianapolis and were such a delightful couple. Thank you, Robert and Sarrah, for the opportunity to capture this exciting time in your lives. I hope you like the sneak peek!

And they lived happily ever after...

Baby Anna

Oh, how I love cute little itty bitty newborns! Anna was born April 13. It's hard to believe my babies were ever really this small and it's only been a little over a year. She did so well today with the multiple outfit changes and crazy photographer who was wrapping her up in foreign blankies. Thank you, Kelly and Shawn, for the opportunity to capture your little princess in her first month. I hope you like the sneak peek!

Meghan and Brent Got Hitched!

It was a dream day for a dream wedding. The bride was absolutely gorgeous with the sweetest groom. The tender moments between Brent and Meghan never stopped. Of course, no wedding goes without a few bumps to make it memorable. My moment was my organ player (who didn't exactly play a recognizable song). Meghan's was her hair. I am not just a photographer...I can also pass as a beautician now. Meghan's hair wasn't exactly what she had in mind, so her little sis and I made some minor edits (as I like to call it). I felt so honored to be part of Meghan and Brent's big day. They were two of the kindest and most fun people I have worked with. Thank you so much, Meghan and Brent, for trusting me to capture your wedding day. I hope you had a fabulous honeymoon and you like the sneak peek. The rest will be soon to follow.

The details - I fell in love with her shoes!

I'm not sure Meghan's mom was thrilled to see her baby posed on a grand piano looking so hot. ;) Meghan said her one wish was a photo of Brent with his "big smile".

These photos mean more once you know the story of what's going on. Meghan and Brent chose not to see each other before the wedding. I think it about killed them that day being apart - they were so cute. Meghan hid behind the wall while Ian and I got Brent into position. Then she inched up just far enough to hold his hand for a moment. The emotion and anticipation in their faces, along with the sweet exchange of "I love you's" was enough to make anyone tear up. Thanks for the awesome idea, Meghan! I hope this is exactly what you dreamed of for this shot.

There's nothing like a dad with his little girl and a groom seeing his bride for the first time. Then, a heavenly marriage sealed with a kiss.

To be continued...

Laura and Jeff - Family

Today was a beautiful fall day (probably one of the few we have left before my favorite season sets in). I met Laura and Jeff down at Happy Hollow Park.  Most of the leaves have fallen, but we found a few bright ones still on a little tree to add some color. Laura is 22 weeks prego - and never takes a bad photo. We had fun finding the best poses to show off her cute baby bump. You two are so cute (or should I say 3?, or 5 including the pups). I hope you enjoy the sneak peek. Thank you for the opportunity to capture such a special time in your life.

 I love Oliver (pup on the right) smiling.

Meghan and Brent - Engaged!

Nothing is more fun that photographing a couple in love; especially on a perfect fall day. Meghan and Brent will be getting married in April, so we met today to do some engagement portraits. Most of them were shot downtown. They have the cutest engagement story involving a fishing pole, the pedestrian bridge, and of course, a gorgeous ring. Thank you for the chance to capture a moment in time with you, Brent and Meghan. I can't wait to meet again in April, if not before then. I hope you enjoy the sneak peek.

Jill, Kyle, & Elizabeth

I can't believe it's already that time of the year that we are thinking of holiday portraits. Today I had the chance to photograph the Rhodes family again. It's amazing to see how much little Elizabeth has changed in just one year - what a cutie! We had a lot of fun downtown Lafayette. Thank you again, Jill and Kyle. I hope you like the sneak peek.
