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

Emersyn Mae Pittenger was born on December 15, 2018 at 1:50pm weighing 7lbs 11oz and measuring 21 1/2in long. I am so happy that I got to capture her mom and dad’s maternity photos before she was born, and then 2 weeks after she was born I got to capture sweet little Emersyn in my studio. She was wide awake for about an hour and a half, then fell asleep for about 30 minutes. She was absolutely adorable and so sweet during her session.
Mariah & Quin were so cute and sweet to work with. They told me that they were awkward in photos, and they were everything but awkward! They were so naturally sweet and giggly. Mariah and Quin drove over an hour to meet me at Whitetail Tree Farm and capture their adorable engagement photos in the middle of winter! I am so happy that they had me capture such special photos and endured the cold, it was so worth it! I can not wait to share the rest of their gallery with them!Read More
OH MY WORD! Where do I begin, this is the only session this year that I have captured in the snow and I am in love! We could not feel our fingers after being out in the snow for about 30 minutes, but it was so worth it! Cheyenne and Randy were sooooo sweet to work with, I had such a great time with this married couple. I hope that I get to work with Cheyenne and Randy again in the future, because it was such a joy capturing them!Read More
I absolutely love working with the Choate family, little Audra is so stinking precious! They wore matching Christmas jammies with DOGS skiing on them, I could not get over the cuteness! Thank you for coming back again and having me capture your adorable family.Read More
The Bilyeu family are repeat clients and good friends of mine. Megan and I have known each other since we were little and danced together for years. When Megan and Justin had their precious baby boy, I HAD to capture his newborn photos and now I got the chance to photograph his adorable Christmas photos in the studio. He was the happiest little baby boy!Read More
I absolutely loved capturing Ruthie’s senior photos! She was super sweet and so mature. She brought her illustrated Harry Potter book with her to her session and it made my day! We talked about how we had both read all of the books, and she showed me some of the illustrations in her gorgeous hardback book. She was like Alice in Wonderland spinning and smiling through the trees, so whimsical and playful.Read More
As Fall was ending I drove about 2 hours to Freetown Indiana and met up with Clint and Kaela at Salt Creek Winery. I have known Clint for about 10 years from Diabetes camp, and met Kaela just a few years ago when she came and helped volunteer at camp. The two of them are the sweetest most down to earth people you could ever meet. I love that they included their old truck in their session and the gorgeous scenery from down south. They say that it’s good luck when it rains on your wedding day, so I am going to say it’s double the luck when it rains during your engagement photos! They were such troopers, smiling, laughing, kissing, and dancing through the rain. I can not wait to photograph their wedding day next year and am so glad that they had me capture their engagement photos.Read More
I absolutely loved working with Aubrey, she had the cutest little onesie Christmas pajama set and the prettiest little dress that she brought to her session! Aubrey is 10 years old and so mature, sweet, well mannered, and smart! Don’t worry, I helped her eat some of those Chocolate Chip cookies!Read More
Easton and Leyson were so sweet and well behaved in the studio! Their adorable sweaters and cute smiles were just too much to handle. They even got to chow down on their Christmas cookies at the end of the session... Don't tell Santa!Read More
The Keihn family was such a blast to work with! I was so glad we captured the short lived fall leaves in the background. Lane. was so excited to have his photo taken, he could barely hold it together! I spent the entire session laughing due to Lane laughing and making the silliest faces! The two oldest children, Raylynn and Raymond JR are twins and both were so sweet and helpful, helping me lay the blankets and helping pose their little brother Lane! Thank you Raymond and Taylor for having me capture your sweet family, I can not wait to capture your family in the future and through out the years!Read More
I have known Malory since first grade, she was one of the first friends I made in Mrs. Lane’s class. We both graduated together from Wapahani and then roomed together our freshman year of college at Indiana Wesleyan, where I witnessed Ben propose to Malory! It was so amazing to be able to capture their adorable family and meet little Charlie for the first time! Charlie was wide awake and so smiley I loved capturing all of her expressions. I had a blast catching up with Malory and Ben and capturing so many cute photos of them loving on each other.Read More
This is the third time I have had the chance to work with Ashley and Zach! I look forward to every time I get to capture their family photos, the two of them are so laid back and I always have great conversations with them. This is the first time that I got to meet their new puppy Dorothy! Ashley kept telling me that she apologized ahead of time for how crazy she would be, but Zach and her brought the treats and she was absolutely perfect for the camera! I had such a blast with this family, and I can not wait to watch them grow in the future and capture their doggo throughout the years!Read More
Here is a second sneak peek at Kyle & Olivia's Engagement Session from this past Friday! I have known this couple for over 7 years and they are both so sweet and so in love with each other. I am so happy that the two of you are finally getting married! I had such a blast capturing your engagement pictures, there are so many more to come.
Congratulations Kyle & Olivia Horvath!Read More
Oh my word! Where do I start with this adorable unique little family? So James and Elyssa travel all over the place with the fair with their two little girls! Do you know how much respect I have for this family, I can’t imagine having two little girls within 10 months of each other and expecting a third while TRAVELING 6 months of out of the year!
It rained and rained this past week and I thought we were going to catch a small break from the pouring rain… but I was wrong. I messaged Elyssa and told her I would understand if she wanted to reschedule, I was expecting a “Yes I will need to reschedule to a time when its not pouring!” But instead I got a “We might as well go for it!” (I was so excited!)
We got to the White river and it was just sprinkling, so we got out and started our photo session under a tree and then headed down to the river. As soon as we got down to the water it started raining even harder, we then headed across the street to a small park, it of course started raining harder. Elyssa, James, nor the two kids ever complained. I kept apologizing that it was raining so hard and she could have cared less! They all rocked this session and it was honestly so sweet and romantic, with the two cuddling up to each other in the rain, dancing with each other, and watching the two kiddos play and splash in the rain puddles. I am so excited to share a few photos from this perfect session! Thank you Elyssa & James for being AMAZING clients and just going with the flow!Read More
Whitney & Chase Fieler were back in the states for just a couple more weeks, and we had to capture a 3 month session of Dax before they left to go back to Belgium. So many cute cuddly photos of Dax and his mom and dad.Read More
