John & Jessica...Engaged! :)

I had such a blast photographing this gorgeous bride-to-be and her completely laid back and easy going guy!  Jessica and I have been sort of "exchanging" services this year (she is an amazing designer)!!!  So, I was thrilled when we decided to set up an engagement shoot!  John and Jessica are an adorable couple and we had a wonderful evening for pictures-and found some great (new) locations!!!  I hope that you both enjoy this sneak peek as much as I enjoyed capturing the two of you together!!!  Best of luck wedding planning!!! :)

The Odom Family...

This next shoot was awesome for so many reasons!  1.  The little girl's name is "Ginger"-TOO cute!!!!  2.  She was perfection!  3.  I had been in contact with mom since May and did not realize until pulling up to their house that I have known her since college!!!!  I am going to blame it on pregnancy brain! ;)  But, that is why I just LOVE this job!  I have been able to reconnect with so many wonderful people through photographs!!!  Kelly and Jeff-your home was such a great place for pictures and it is so apparent that Miss Ginger is loved dearly!  You are an adorable family!!!  I hope you enjoy your sneak peek 1/2 as much as I enjoyed capturing you all!!! :)


The Metzger Family...

This next family is a very special one!  I met Allison my very first year of teaching (8 years ago)! and fell in love with her as soon as we started hanging out!  She is literally one of the most genuine people I have ever met and I adore what an incredibly huge heart she has!!!  I was SOOO excited when I got the call from Allison that she was pregnant with Bryson (my neighbors may have even heard me scream)!  I photographed Bryson as a newborn-one year ago-and I was SO honored when they asked me to capture them together as a family!  Metzgers-I love you and I LOVED spending the morning with you all!!!  Enjoy your sneak peek!

The Miller Family...

I just LOVE it when a previous client refers an awesome new family and that is exactly what happened here! :)  I met the Miller family downtown this weekend for a wonderful family shoot along the canal.  Drew and Melinda were fantastic, little Brooklyn was a cutie and Miss Maya and I had an instant connection because of our red hair! ;)  I even got an invite from Maya to the State Fair after the shoot was over! ;)  Thank you Miller family for such a fun shoot!  I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

Annie, Blake, and Baby on the way!!!

I have always said how much it means to me to shoot such important moments in the lives of others!  Well, this next shoot was extra special because I have known Annie for so many years!  Annie and my sister have been friends since they were in 1st grade and Annie practically lived at our house while growing up!  At Purdue I rushed her pretty hard and she ended up being a Pi Phi...which was SO fun!  Annie has grown into such an amazingly strong and beautiful woman!  She will be such a great mom!  After the shoot I sent Annie a text telling her what a "peach" she has for a husband...Blake was wonderful!  Good luck you two!  Hope you enjoy your sneak peek! :)

Tuesday, August 9, 2011 year, Mia...four!

This is my first "final" shoot I have had with one of my 2010 "Watch Me Grow Packages".  I feel so blessed to have been able to photograph Lucas' first year!  He is such a cutie...and MAN, was he on the move for this shoot!!!  We also took Mia's 4 year photos and I have LOVED watching her grow!!!  I still remember her as a 5 month old in her stroller!!!  It is truly crazy how time flies!!!  Enjoy this sneak peek! :)

Friermood family...

I was so honored when Megan contacted me about taking her family photographs!  Megan and I teach together and I was able to talk her into letting me take Adelyn's newborn photos I was JUST really getting into newborns! :)  Before the shoot even began we had to dodge many sprinklers (not missing all of them)-they were all such troopers! Maille was too cute for words and was the BEST big sister during the pictures!!!  Friermood were wonderful!  Enjoy your sneak peek!
