{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. :)

{Easton|”BIRTHday”}Clinton Indiana Newborn Photographer

I’ve done a few hospital newborn shots for my Tiny Blessing families! I completely and totally love it! Last night however was the first time I went just hours after the baby was born. The entire family was there waiting to get their eyes and hands on that little guy. :)

Jessica’s labor started around 11 p.m Monday night and she went in to the hospital at around 1 a.m. The family waited anxiously all day for Easton to arrive, but we all know how babies are. :) We got the last update that Jess was at 10cm so I knew that at any minute I would get the call to come…..and I waited….and waited. ha! After about 2 1/2 hours of pushing they made the decision to do a C-section. Well no wonder! Easton is a big boy!! He was born 9 lb 6 oz and 21 1/2 inches long. He has the most biggest hands I have seen on a newborn. I hope my little hats fit him. lol He is definitely going to play football.

I’ll be meeting up with the new family on Saturday, so until then, here is a slideshow of my visit.

{Josh|High School Senior Session}Clinton Indiana High School Senior Photographer

Josh is a Senior at S.V. H. S. in Clinton. He is graduating next month!

I met Josh when I photographed his sister’s wedding this past October. He has such a wonderful family! The whole family, along with Josh’s girlfriend met up Jen and I at Fairbanks Park. The weather has been so beautiful for sessions and this day was no different.

Jen Stow of Jen Rinaldi Photographer (http://blog.jenrinaldiphotography.com/) was here for this session too. :)

Here are a few of my favorites!

{Amanda|High School Senior Session} Clinton Indiana High School Senior Photographer

Meet Amanda!! She is a 2012 Senior at S.V. in Clinton. I met her when she was a Sophomore while her and my daughter were in choir together. Amanda is so sweet and pretty. She also has this amazingly cute little girl!

I shot this session with my good friend Jen Stow from Virginia (http://blog.jenrinaldiphotography.com/ ). Jen was visiting so we tag teamed for a few sessions while she was here. I always enjoy her visits and working with her on sessions. I won’t post her photos, but when she gets hers up, I’ll update this to include the link.

We met in Clinton for her session. Most people miss the great opportunities that their little cities give. You may have lived there all your life and think, “there isn’t anything cool in ___________”, but if you look close enough you’ll find great places for pictures. I’m still discovering little places in my town.

Hello Beautiful!

Thank you Amanda for allowing Jen and I to capture your Senior photos!! Good luck in all you do!

{9 Month Session ~ “C”} Terre Haute Indiana Photographer

I’m often asked what my favorite sessions are and that is such a hard question to answer. I love different parts of certain sessions. Even though newborns take a lot of work and patience, I love how tiny they are. I love to capture the love of that the parents and siblings feel towards this new life. I could shoot newborn sessions every day. I also love shooting infants when they are able to sit up. They don’t crawl yet, their personalities are starting to emerge with big smiles and laughs. Then fast forward to the toddler stage, LOVE the energy and them running all over and just enjoying life! I love the older kids and their ability to take direction…I love boosting confidence in preteens. Senior sessions are awesome too. So many directions their lives can take…sigh. <3

Anyway, I said all that to say that I loved this session!! I have actually loved every session that I’ve had with this family. The little one….oooh he’s just so cute!! I also love the oldest one. He is ALL boy! I love his energy. His mom takes pictures….I’ll bet she gets a ton of awesome photographs of him in action. Love it!!

 

{9 Month Session ~ “L”} Avon Indiana Infant Photographer

Scott and Sarah came down from Avon to my house for “L”s 9 month session. He is such a beautiful baby! He’s so shy and he has the bluest eyes! When they came here we had some snow still on the ground so I thought to photograph the little one in some snow. He didn’t care for that too much. We’ve only had one, maybe two snows this winter. Today it feels like spring. I have a feeling that we will get some snow before the winter season is all over.

I got this backdrop from Photo Prop Floors and Backdrops. You can find all that they offer here: http://www.facebook.com/PhotoPropFloorsandBackdrops. From what I’m reading on their page, their website is looking to go live pretty soon.

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.

Father-Daughter Dance

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!

{6 month session} “I”/Effingham, Ill Baby Photographer

We are half way into little “I”s first year of photos. It always amazes me how much the change from month to month. At his newborn session, he was small…really skinny. Really nothing much to his little self. Now, at 6 month he is chubby and full of smiles! Here are some of the favorites from our session.
