Thank you for stopping by!
Lifestyle, our passion...that is how we describe what we do.  It's the day to day, remember when, wish I could have been there type of moments.  It's real life captured forever...not only in a photograph, but in your hearts, your minds, your souls.  We truly are thankful for this role God has blessed us with.  We look forward to sharing these moments, along with our journey, in this crazy place called life.

It feels like ages since I've blogged a family session!!  Oh, wait...it has been. ;)  I've worked with so many incredible families over the last couple of years, but haven't been able to share any of them due to all that we've had going on in our personal lives (selling our home/opportunity to buy a new home--more to come on that, :) celebrating the lives of my 2 incredible Grandpas, a busy shooting schedule...and, the discovery that our kiddos also have a schedule these days;).  So, no complaints with what has been going on, but that is the explanation for the crickets you've been hearing. ;)

Anyway, I couldn't help but share this sweet session of the Hendrickson family.  We have quite the history with them...their engagement session/wedding, and many milestone photos for their growing family.  I'm honored to call Katie a dear friend, and am thankful for the many memories I've been able to document for them over the years.  Enjoy these sweet, loving moments of adorable faces, family interactions and lots of giggles!

Love you guys!

It's hard to believe that it was this time last year when Jeremy and I hopped on a plane and flew to the great state of Texas for Jen & Matt's engagement session!  I was so excited to share these photos, but between our move, celebrating the lives of both of my Grandpas (within a 4 month period), and a busy photography season...I didn't get to share them like I had hoped.  So, since we are at the one year mark I thought it was time to share them. :)

We developed such a great friendship with these two!  And, they were just as endearing as they were adorable...love them to pieces!  We got to enjoy a beautiful evening just before a torrential downpour moved through.  Thank you for the memories, Jen and Matt...loved capturing you guys! 


Since Jen and Matt were getting married in Indianapolis we decided to do a quick mini session there, as well!  Love so many of these photos!  And, a special thanks to our good friend, Wade Carignan, for joining Jeremy on their Indy session.

And, a special Happy Father's Day to Jeremy!  He is such an incredible dad to Gabe and Claire!  I am so thankful that we've had awesome role models in our fathers to help guide us through our parenting years.  I am so thankful to have him by my side on this journey.  Love you, dear!

What a beautiful day Diana and Daniel had!  The month of May brought lots of sunshine and low humidity which is always awesome in Indiana.  I had told them that the ideal weather day for them would be (somewhat) cloudy skies, so that we could shoot in multiple locations/directions during the part of the day where the sun is directly overhead (aka. early-mid afternoon).  Diana was prepared for the rain (loved her attitude), and I was anticipating full sun, but God brought the perfect skies for their day.

I loved getting to know Diana, Daniel and their families!  They had a small wedding filled with their close friends and family (Daniel is one of 8 children!!), so the day was intimate and perfect for them.  Diana and Daniel were such a joy to be around, and we were honored that they chose us to capture these heirlooms for them.  I love that they will be able to share these photos with their children and grandchildren in the years to come!  Many hugs to you both!

Stacey and Eric had such a lovely day!  A wedding in April can be somewhat unpredictable, but their day was absolutely perfect.  They were surrounded by their closest family and friends for the ceremony, and later joined them for dinner at Matteo's in downtown Noblesville (one of my favorite restaurants:).  I had to share some of my favorites from the photos of the two of them.  They are as sweet as they are beautiful together, and it was an honor to capture their day.  Congratulations and hugs to you both!
