Indianapolis Engagement Photographer | Holly & Michael

This is one of my favorite recent sessions! I’ve been having a blast getting to know Holly and Michael better over the past few weeks. They recently joined our small group at church and I was thrilled when Holly asked if I could do their engagement session. They are just the sweetest couple and have no problems showing off their love. They did such a great job being in front of the camera! We spent the whole evening in downtown Indy and I loved every second of it. Downtown is such a great location for pictures!

We started out their session in front of Banker’s Life where they had their first date. Love that idea!

Seriously, could they be more adorable?

Holly, you are going to make a STUNNING bride! Look at those eyes!

One of my favorites from their session. I am loving all the fun colors! Turns out Michael is road biker too so this wound up being perfect!

Almost there guys! Less than two weeks!! 🙂 🙂

Ahhhh! The lighting could not have been more gorgeous that night!

Holly was not too keen on this idea at first, but she trusted me (aka succumbed to peer pressure) and this wound up being one of their two favorite pictures from the whole night! Thanks for taking a leap of faith (see what I did there? ‘leap’ of faith? har har!). Worth it!

These guys are just so in love. I loved seeing how much they adore each other! 

Ending on another favorite! That’s what happens when two photogenic people hop in front of my camera. I can never narrow it down to just one favorite! Holly and Michael, thank you guys so much for hanging out with us (my awesome husband Kevin usually assists with the lighting at sessions)! It was fantastic to get to know you better and we’re so excited for your future together! Can’t wait for your wedding!! 🙂

Noblesville Senior Photographer | Ciara

You guys, I have been so excited to share this session with everyone. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram then you’ve seen glimpses of this gorgeous senior from Noblesville. Meet Ciara! She is such a bubbly and happy girl! I loved everything about her session. Her styling choices, locations, but mostly just being able to spend time with such a sweetheart.   

Does she know how to rock a pose or what?!? Loving the white wall we found too.

Hands down, my favorite favorite. I have lots of favorite images, but this one really wins in my book! So gorgeous!

Another favorite!!

This one is Ciara’s favorite. She said this is just her to the core. She is just the happiest girl and has quite the infectious smile. I love being able to capture girls the way they envision themselves. 

I have a major case of hair envy after hanging out with this chick!

Ask anyone, I am such a sucker for a good b&w. Love the drama! 

Ciara wins for most natural in front of a camera! 🙂 

Part of her winning is due to her bff, Jessie, coming along. I HIGHLY recommend bringing along the bestie or the boyfriend to senior sessions. They are so awesome at bringing out genuine smiles and who doesn’t love a bff picture??Had to end with a laughing picture because it just perfectly sums up the evening. Ciara, thanks for choosing me to do these pictures for you! I had a fabulous time. Best wishes for your future!

Indianapolis Family Photographer | Vogt Family

If any of you have followed my work from the beginning (bless you if you have!) then you should be pretty familiar with these faces by now. I took maternity pictures for Steph’s first baby, family pictures, Micah’s birthday pictures, anniversary pictures, and now a new set of maternity pictures for the Vogt Princess. Steph is my bff from all the way back in our high school days. Maybe one day I’ll be willing to share some of our embarrassing pictures from then, but for now I’ll stick with these gorgeous maternity/family pictures.

 

We kicked things off with big brother Micah stealing the show.

Seriously, how on earth is he about to be a big brother? I can’t believe it!
Such a gorgeous mama!Micah being a ham. He’s quite the cheeser! 😉
There is something so special about the relationship between a mom and her firstborn. Micah and Steph are no exception. He’s the sweetest mama’s boy around!And like that, he was over pictures. Too much sitting still for this active guy! He loves his daddy just as much! I love seeing how much Stephen adores his little man.

So much love in these next two of Stephen and Stephanie.
There’s no doubt about it, Baby Lydia wins for being born into the best gene pool around. She’s going to be beautiful!
Thanks Stephen, Steph, and Micah for always trusting my crazy ideas with your pictures. It was hot and sticky and the bugs were EVERYWHERE. You would never know it by looking at these pictures though! A HUGE thanks to Grandma Daphne too. She came along with a big bag of toys to keep Micah entertained while we took all the pictures of his parents. Grandmas are just the best!

Indianapolis Child Photographer | Gove Girls

I’m not even sure how to accurately express how much I love these little girls. They are seriously my favorite kids in the whole world. I’ve known them since 2011 and have loved watching them grow up. I always get so excited to do their pictures because I know how much fun it’s going to be. I could probably write at least a paragraph full of adorable reasons why I love each girl and their sweet personalities, but I don’t want to bore you guys! Take my word for it: these kids (and their awesome parents) are just the best ever! Be prepared for me to gush over all the images. It was too hard not to! Omw, her toothy little grin cracks me up! So precious.Love love love this! I feel like this is small glimpse into what she’s going to look like when she gets older one day. I have NO CLUE where that hand pop came from, but I wasn’t about to tell her to stop! This girl is brimming over with personality! If there were ever a kid to be loved to death, it would be this baby girl. Her big sisters are her BIGGEST fans. And smotherers! 😉 Check out those curls!! Don’t panic! Dad is literally just out of frame. I even cropped his foot out! She was loving life!Oh that hand and pointed foot combo! This little lady is 5 going on 15!SO.MUCH.CUTE. I always wanted a sister. This picture makes me wish I had one even more!
We celebrated a successful session with ice cream. And I of course had to get some more pictures because what’s cuter than kids with ice cream??Her eyes! Her hair! Ahhhh!Thank you so much Ray and Sarah and girls for spending a great evening with me. I love being able to capture this time of life for you guys and can’t wait for more pictures in the fall. Your kids were angels as always 😉

Indianapolis Family Photographer | Shultz Family

I met this awesome family this past fall and was pretty excited when I heard from Krista for some spring time pictures. Connor just turned one and had a fire truck themed party. He was digging the fire trucks and I swear I have never seen a kid so willingly wear a hat! He loved it! Claire is 3 and wasn’t too interested in pictures. She just wanted to run around and play. Lucky for me, I was ready to run too! I had a blast chasing her around and totally counted it as my workout for the day. 😉 Then we ended our session in the most perfect summertime way imaginable-with ice cream!!

Love that Claire was willing to take a cuddle break with her mama. She is quite the sweet big sis! Oh Connor. You are way too cute! Love his sweet little smile! I think of being a kid in the summer when I look at Claire in this picture. Ice cream dripping down her arm and not a care in the world. What could be better?!

I may or may not be eating ice cream while I’m blogging this… 😉

Thanks, Don and Krista, for spending a fun evening with me! I loved seeing you guys again!
