Newborn Session {Harrison!}

You might not remember back to this last fall, but I took pictures of Isaac and his little family before he turned three…AND to announce that they were expecting their second. 

Isaac is a ball of energy and so incredibly smart. You nearly use up two days worth of energy in just a couple of hours to get through a shoot with him, but honestly? I LOVE the conversations I have with him. He’s adorable. His parents are adorable and the sweetest. And now his brother is 100% as adorable as they all are!

Introducing: Harrison!

I’m hoping he’s just as energetic and amazing as his big brother.

Senior Portraits- Downtown Fort Wayne

Valeria is the daughter of a former coworker of mine. 

She’s going to be gone the rest of the school year up until graduation for a program, so we HAD to get her senior photos in that weekend otherwise she won’t have any time when she gets back. That girl was SO brave coming out to downtown in summer dresses, in 28 degree weather, and SUPER windy. I was game, and so was she. So away we went. 

For as cold as it was and as miserable as we all were with the wind, I’m SO proud of the photos. She’s so gorgeous I couldn’t believe how she wasn’t signed to a model agency yet. 

 

Enjoy!

The Appleton Family

Okay, this session I am SO excited about. 

Sarah contacted me about family photos, and I’ve been DYING to do a location that isn’t the conservatory. (Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but I don’t want EVERYONE’s photos to have the same backgrounds, you know? I need variety in my life!) They were super easy going and definitely wanted opinions. So I suggested a coffee shop locale. What’s even more perfect is that the coffee shop we went to was not too far from their home AND it was the CUTEST little shop I’ve ever been in. 

Jeremiah’s Brewed Awakenings. 

Cute name right? 

SO STINKING CUTE. 

And awesome drinks. Seriously. 

Well, these guys were just so fun. So real. And little Cain was just stealing everyone’s hearts (including the guy I’m seeing…I’ll tell you about him later!). I seriously hope you guys enjoy this preview as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Acker Family!

I’ve taken photos for the Ackers before. 

They’re so cute, and little Ariana is just a pistol of wonderful energy!

During the winter there aren’t too much options to take pictures indoors, so the Botanical Conservatory is super popular for everyone. You get that outside feel in the middle of January with feet (and I mean FEET) of snow on the ground. Here in Fort Wayne, the conservatory is in middle of downtown close to food, the Embassy and within walking distance to parks and the Art Museum. It’s really cute, and every month they do a different theme. I believe this month is butterflies? 

Enjoy!

Gardner Family Session

So, we went downtown, to the Botanical Conservatory. 

Kids? Not liking the idea of a photo shoot too much. 

But we had fun anyway!

Long time no hear from?

Well. 

Life has been interesting. I could go on and on and on with stories on what has happened from May through now, but I don’t want to bore you!!

Long story short…

{Car wreck/breakup/lost my job/ denied unemployment}

Things have been…well, eventful. That’s for sure. 

However, while life has been life, I’m VERY excited to announce that I officially have 6 weddings booked for 2014 with another one in the works once New Years rolls in. The first of the soon to be seven? Why, next weekend of course! 

Words do not describe how excited I am. 

Rough times don’t last forever. While it’s sometimes hard for me to remember, I’ve also realized a few things and contemplated a few new possibilities. While it’s all a giant question mark at this current moment in time, I’m positive that something wonderful will be decided soon. 

 

Until then, I am able to focus 100% on my passion; my photography. 

Which is my business. 

Which is my dream.
