Emma & Brandon drove from Ohio to scout out some wedding venues and had me capture their engagement photos while they were visiting! As soon as they walked up, a dog was running loose, so I threw my camera down and went chasing it (naturally). After the dog was safe and back with its’ owners, I introduced myself. Within just a few seconds, Emma looks down at my insulin pump (if you didn’t know already, I am a type 1 diabetic and have been for over 17 years) and says, “are you a diabetic?”, and raises her shirt to show me her dexcom sensor! Automatically we connect, because if you are a type 1 diabetic and see each other in public, you are automatically best friends (if you didn’t know that, now you know!) After we talked a while about our dead pancreases, we began shooting at Morrow’s Meadows! These two were so naturally in love, I asked them about how they met and they told me they met on Bumble. She told me that on Bumble, the girl has to reach out to the guy, so she made the first move. I told her about how my boyfriend and I met, and how I walked up to him and shook his hand and said, “Hi, I’m Kyla, what’s your name?” I had such blast capturing these two, and their love for one another! They were so cuddly and cute while bumping hips and almost knocking each other over, cuddling on a log and telling their own inside jokes to make each other laugh.Read More
TITUS is a sweetheart who needs a good loving home! He is so gentle, loving, cuddly, playful, and well mannered! I got to spend a couple hours with him yesterday driving to and from the studio and capturing some adorable shots of him. He listened so well and took the treats so gently, he loved pouncing around playing fetch and was so careful letting me take and throw the toy again! I would take him home in a heart beat after just spending a short amount of time with him, but needs to be the only dog in his home. I promise he will fill your heart with love and affection! Please help find Titus a home, he is currently at Wagglebottoms, where they have been fostering him for a while. Anyone who adopts him, will receive a FREE online gallery with all of his portraits to download and hang all around the house!Read More
Maplewood is home to Dan & April (when it comes to golf courses), they spend their free time playing in golf leagues, vacationing at golf resorts, and even got engaged at a golf course! I am so happy that I got to capture their engagement photos at such a special location. Congratulations to the two of you on your engagement, I can not wait to capture your wedding this summer at the same special place!Read More
Waj & Jason flew all the way from Texas to see Jason’s cousin graduate, while visiting for the weekend they had me capture their engagement photos. I have known Jason’s mom now for several years and she helped set up the engagement session. They were so sweet and even had matching shirts and superhero toys for their shoot (aw)! They met while Waj was visiting a friend in Texas, and just clicked! She plans on moving to the United States at the end of this year to stay with Jason! I am so glad that I got the opportunity to capture their sweet love story!Read More
The Swilley family was amazing to work with! Their two kiddos were so mannered and well behaved, but loved being playful, giggling, and running around their parents at Minnetrista. I am so thankful that I can be a preferred photographer at Minnetrista and use their beautiful property to photograph my clients at.Read More
I got the opportunity to capture Riley, who is a senior at Yorktown high School graduating this Sunday. Her momma wanted a session with her 12 year old dog Gypsy, so that is what we did! I absolutely love being able to capture pets in photo sessions. When I was a senior in high school, I lost my childhood dog, Biscuit to old age. That previous summer I had had photos taken in my backyard with him and those photos mean the world to me. Being able to look back at those images, after he was gone is so special to me, and I will hold on to those for the rest of my life.Read More
I am so excited to share some photos that I captured of Ashlee Anderson in her in home gym! We ended up with SOOO many for her to be able to share and up date her website with. Thank you Ashlee for letting me into your home to capture these amazing moments to share on your social media and website with your clients and potential clients. I can't wait to see what you do with all of them.Read More
Danielle & Mason are the sweetest couple, they drove about an hour for me to capture their engagement photos, and were so adventurous during their session (which I appreciate so much!) I love being able to capture my wedding couple's engagement photos as well, that gives us some time to get to know one another and get to know each other's personalities. After our session, they told me how happy they were that they had found me (which makes me so happy to hear).
I always try and make our sessions fun with cuddles and giggles. I will give my couples different scenarios to act out, which usually results in the best natural laughs EVER! This couple did every impression and scenario the best I have ever seen, they had me giggling behind my camera even and saying aww! You can really see their love for one another in all the smiles and sweet moments that I captured.
Here is just a sneak peek at your many photos! I am so excited to capture your wedding next year, YAY!
Caroline had the fanciest "Breakfast at Tiffany's" themed 5th birthday shoot in downtown Muncie and she had me smiling the entire time! OH MY, I mean look at her! She was such a little model! I need more downtown Muncie 5 year old sessions!Read More
This is the 3rd time I have worked with the Sorg family, and I absolutely love them! They are my kind of people, I always find myself laughing and smiling throughout their entire session, behind the camera and while we are just talking after words. I am so thankful for repeat clients like them! Here is a little peak at their Mother’s Day Mini session, how cute are they?!Read More
So when I was in preschool we passed the microphone around the stage at graduation and told the audience what we wanted to be when we grew up, I said "I want to be a veterinarian when I grow up!" Then nervously passed that mic to the next kid. I later on learned that veterinarians had to put animals down when they were sick or old, so I changed that dream real quick and just decided I would own all the dogs and cats I could. Now that I am doing my dream job, with several animals of my own, I get to photograph the cutest doggies ever, and it makes my heart so happy!
Check out Finnegan, and his two sweet parents, Kellyn & Christian Reid.
I was so happy when they came strolling up with the cutest doggo Finn for a Mother's Day Mini!Read More
OH MY, Where do I start? These two boys were so stinking adorable! Aiden was only 1 month old, and was the cutest 10 pound+ newborn! His gorgeous blue eyes, kept looking right into the camera, and I could not have asked for more ( I did not even mind that he was awake the entire session! ) Liam, is going to be the best big brother to Aiden, I hope to see them back in the studio as they both grow!Read More
GUYS! Look at little Brantley and his gorgeous momma Autumn Nicole Moore!
I had been scouting locations for a couple weeks for my Mother's Day Minis, and I found this location with some great spots, I arrived for the session and was even happier about all the greenery and gorgeous white blooms that had come in on the trees, in just the past week! I am looking forward to all of my mother’s day minis this weekend, so far I have 13 scheduled and a couple pending!
I held my first year of Easter minis in the studio, and am so happy with how my backdrop turned out. I used a Fancy Fabrics Floor mat, Hobby Lobby faux Grass that I cut in half, a Michael’s Carrot Banner, and Hobby Lobby greenery, 2 moss bunnies, and some carrots from Hobby Lobby as well. A couple of the kids also held my Boyd’s Bear stuffed bunny that I use for my newborns.Read More
Introducing MISS SAWYER MONROE!
I don't know if she could get any cuter! My heart is absolutely melting editing her newborn photos in the studio!
I had the best assistants; momma Logan Niccum and auntie Tara Lee Berger! Here is a little sneak peek at her photos. She was such a little busy bee for most of the session, but towards the end she wore herself out and we captured the sweetest photos of her.
Get you a man that looks at you like Devin looks at Leah! I loved being able to capture Leah & Devin’s second wedding reception. It poured rain on my drive there and snowed about 2 inches on my way home. Somewhere in between Indiana’s dramatic weather, we got about 40 minutes to capture family, bridal, and couple portraits outside! The Cope Environmental Center was such a modern and unique venue, I loved the modern architecture and the natural light pouring in from outside. These two are so sweet and laid back, and have so much love for one another. Here is a large sneak peek of their family portraits, couple portraits, and a few details from their wedding reception.Read More
During our session I found out that both Birdie and I have Type 1 Diabetes! She was such a good little model in the studio. Last fall I had captured some photos at Birdie's mom's home and she was running free and crazy, even at 11 years old, so we decided to do some portraits in the studio so that she was little more confined. Birdie's favorite part of her session was all the treats that mom brought her.Read More
IT IS WARMING UP OUTSIDE, AND I LOVE IT! That means more outdoor photo sessions, more cuddles and adorable photos. I had the opportunity to work with Kendra and Noah at Whitetail Tree Farm a couple weeks ago, and they were so in love and giggly. They were both so sweet and photogenic, they were cuddling even when I was not posing them. You can see how much they love each other in every photo I took and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. Enjoy some of my favorites from Kendra and Noah’s engagement shoot and leave them some love!Read More
