{7 month Session|Keelyn}Clinton Indiana Children Photographer

Here we are in Keelyn’s 7th month photos. This time the theme is Easter! I think this boy could make dirt look cute, don’t you? His smile is infectious. I simply adore this boy.

I love the idea that his mom has for his 8th month photos. Here are his pictures. :)

{Brandon~2012 Senior/Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics and Humanities}Terre Haute,Indiana High School Senior Photographer

I met Brandon’s mom while she was attending a wedding I was photographing. I’m not total strangers to this family though. I’ve photographed some of her family members for almost 2 years.

Brandon chose to have studio pictures done vs going outside. This was a very good decision as it was misting heavily and very windy. Not a good day for outside pictures. His sister got in on a few pictures. Their mom showed me the last picture they had taken of the two of them together. It looks like it had been a little while. :)

I prefer to shoot in natural light when possible, but I always bring my studio lights and umbrellas for when natural light isn’t enough. Thankfully, they had two large windows that I was able to use. I did use one of my studio lights set at its brightest, just to give me a little more boost of light. Sometimes I have to increase my ISO to allow more light in. When you do that, we will see an increase in grain. My D700 handles higher ISO’s a little better than my D90.

Doesn’t he look like a young Steve Jobs??

{1 year Session ~ “C”}

Kim, her mom and sister met up at my house for “C”s 1 year session. The year goes by so fast! I always get a little misty eyed when the year ends.

I love cake smash sessions! You never really know how the little one is going to react to the cake. I’ve seen some tear into it, some barely pick at it and some that shudder at the littlest taste of it. “C” liked it, but he didn’t tear into it. :)

I’ve included some from his 9 month session since I never did get around to blogging that one.

Happy Birthday “C”!!

 

On to “C”s 1 year session!!

Session with a purpose

Several months back I posted on my Facebook Fan page a request to find a few people that have either survived cancer or some that were going through it. Out of all the responses I received, only one booked with me. What was my purpose for these sessions? To celebrate life! I’m seeing far too many people losing the ones they love because of this terrible disease.

I was contacted by Holly, one of my families that I photographed, regarding her Aunt that is fighting this battle. I took Kims pictures in the spring of 2011 at Bridgeton. Holly contacted me again to see if I would take some more photos of Kim and her family a couple of weeks ago. Of course, I consider it a complete honor to capture small moments in their lives. I am still lifting you up in prayer Kim. I love you lady!! You are such a warrior. <3

Here are my many favorites from their special session.

{Wedding} Christina & Russell/West Layfayette Indiana Wedding Photographer

I was asked to shoot Christina and Russell’s wedding last year by Russell’s mom Emily. I didn’t get to meet Christina until the day of the wedding. I’ll admit, that always makes me nervous. I usually like to talk with my brides multiple times before the big day. I didn’t need to worry though, Christina and Russell, (the entire family for that matter) were so super laid back and just wonderful. I feel like we got along so wonderfully.

The wedding was held at Our Savior Lutheran Church in West Layfayette, Indiana. This is very near the campus of Purdue. We had such beautiful weather! Then it was off to dinner and dancing. Christina and Russell had the best music playing during dinner…..Michael Buble! As my family knows, he is my favorite, (well, him, Jason Mraz and John Mayer.) It is clear that he is crazy about her, ;^). I loved watching Russell with Christina. He was singing to her during their first dance, actually, I think he did that several times throughout the reception. Here are some of my favorites!

There wasn’t a formal, “you may now kiss your bride”, so I’m glad we were paying attention and watching them closely during this time of the ceremony.

Mother-Son

Congratulations Christina and Russell! I wish you many years of happiness and God’s Highest and Best to you both.

{Sisters} “S” & “G”/Indianapolis Indiana Children and Family Photographer

I met with Mark, Kerry, “S” and “G” in June on the Canal in Indianapolis. I love going there! There really is a lot of possibilities.

Once again “S” & “G” knew how to pose for the camera. Those girls are such naturals! They have the best eyes! I love photographing them. Here are some of my favorites…..be warned, I have a lot!

Love the softness of her expression in this one.

This one too! I could have shot their images all day. :)

Love this funny face!

A little Vogue action

Thanks for looking!

{E-Session} Amy & David/Brazil, Indiana Engagement and Wedding Photographer

Welcome back to me! Lol!! Talk about a long absence…geesh. I’ll have to catch up soon. Things have been so busy with sessions and weddings that the blog took a backseat.

Onto this blog post…..

Amy contacted me about shooting her September wedding. I had some earlier things scheduled, but thankfully was able to move some things around and give her that date. I am so glad that it worked out that we could work together. Their wedding is going to be so much fun! I’ve never used a plane in a session, so when we planned to meet up at the airfield in Brazil, I got really excited. After the airfield, we headed to David’s Grandmothers house. Talk about a great place! So many possibilities.

Here are some of my favorites:

“B” Boys/Clinton and Terre Haute Indiana Children Photographer

I want to start this post with a little…note I guess. :) I’ve seen that almost all the 2 to 2 1/2 year olds that I photograph have a strong aversion to being photographed in the normal, sit down and smile way. When I hear that someone has a 2 year old…I already know that they are going to be full of energy AND that it’s going to be a great session. Parents get a little stressed when they don’t sit down but they really shouldn’t. , we’ll get the family picture that you want. We just need to do something a little different to create the magic that we are after.

We got magic on this day. :) Little “G” is my rockstar…I’m pretty excited by the images we got. ;)

 

J.T~2011 Senior/Clinton and Terre Haute Indiana High School Senior

J.T. and I met up a little while ago before the snow began to fall and the temps took a nose dive. That’s why it looks so warm in these pics. :) He’s a great kid with an awesome smile!

J.T. graduates from South Vermillion in May.

Here are some of my favorites.

“C”~Newborn Session/Terre Haute Indiana Newborn Photographer

Meet the squishiest, sleepiest little baby I’ve photographed. He has rolls and was just so easy to move around. He was literally a limp noodle in my hands. :)

While I was taking the maternity session, we had talked about me being in the delivery room taking pictures of “C”s birth. Well, Kim didn’t deliver until around 2 in the morning…so needless to say, I wasn’t able to be there. However, before work a day or so after his birth, I went to the hospital to capture his cuteness. I love how they came out.

Day 4: I met at their house to get some more studio style shots. :) Enjoy some of my favorites!!
