Bluetown/Terre Haute Indiana Photographer

I was contacted by Cole to shoot some photos for Bluetown’s album and website. I’ve never shot a band before, but I’m always up for new things. We met up in downtown Terre Haute and got to work creating some cool pictures. Terre Haute has some really cool backdrops that can be used for photos.

Their website is found here:

Their band consists of three fluent and dynamic musicians, BLUETOWN is a power trio with three of Indiana’s most talented artsits. They play Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn as well as some original songs. My husband and I had the pleasure of seeing them live so I could photograph them playing. It was great to hear some good music and spending time with my hubby. 🙂

Thanks for choosing me to take photos for your upcoming promotions, album and website.

“B”~5 month old/Terre Haute Indiana Infant and Children Photographer

The “H” family is back! I know you all recognize this family. This we met up for a studio session with some cute ideas! A little snow-white, a little fairy princess, a little mommy and me cooking. It all adds up to some REALLY cute photos.

I had some problems with some extreme static! My lights were popping when someone would touch me, or move my drops. Some other photographers suggested using dryer sheets to cut down on that problem. Here are a few of my favorites.

2012 South Vermillion Senior Rep/Clinton Indiana

Meet Brittany, my 2012 Senior Rep for South Vermillion. I know she’s only in the second half of her Junior year, but I have some really cool ideas that I want to try out that I hadn’t been able to in the past. Brittany is up for anything, which I’m glad. I had received two prom dresses from a friend of mine and Wednesday when Britt was over I had this idea of photographing her in one of these dresses in the snow. I am SO glad she was down with it because I think these pictures are some of my favorite images. I love the feel of the images.

Britt wore her boots and thick leggings so half of her would be warm. lol Total pictures taken: 60, time it took: 30 minutes….not too bad huh?

If you are a 2011 Senior and haven’t had your Senior Pictures taken yet, or you will be a 2012 Senior, email me at: to schedule a fun and unique Senior session. I love to work with you to create a session that you will love.

“N” Family~Maternity Session/Terre Haute Indiana Maternity Photographer

This was supposed to be my last session of 2010, but Kim’s friend delivered her son a little early. That session will be blogged next.

Kim hired me several months ago for the year-long “Tiny Blessing” Sessions. I love meeting new families and getting to spend that first year with them watching their families grow.

All of my families are so great to work with and Kim and Jason are no exception. They are fun to be around, have a great sense of humor and very relaxed in front of the camera. Kim was down for anything…just a lot of fun. Fingers crossed that her delivery and my schedule work out that I will be able to be in the delivery room with her and Jason documenting the birth of their second child. I couldn’t think of any better gift than to be there when new life arrives. ❤

I love the necklaces that Kim chose for her outfits. I really think accessories can make or break the outfit.

Here are some of my favorites from their session.

I love using textures with my images. I don’t know why I do, I just know that I love the feel of the picture when I’m finished.

Happy New Year/Terre Haute Indiana Children and Teen Photographer

Happy 2011 to all my friends and family!

It is my hope that you are all blessed greatly in the coming year. In 2010, I saw an increase in my Tiny Blessing Packages, which is pretty cool! Lots of new babies blessing the world! I got to take part in several weddings, ones on my own and some helping out Sam and Betsy as shooting as their second shooter. I also got to fly over to New Jersey in September to see my bestie, Jen, and her fiance to shoot second at Melissa and John’s wedding on the beach. While there I got to take Jen’s and Chris’s engagement session (although I didn’t know it would be that when we did it). 😛

I’m not planning on changing anything that I’m doing for 2011. I feel that things are good as they are. I would like to see an increase in Seniors in 2011, but I trust God to bring the clients to me. I don’t stress if I don’t have very many of  a certain type of clients. As from the beginning, this business is in God’s hands. He’s really much better as this than me. 🙂

During the down time during the Holidays, I asked (more liked begged), my girls to show off some of their new clothes that they got for Christmas. From this, I made a collage that I bought from MCP Actions. These are print sizes so you make it, get it printed, then frame it!

Thanks to all my wonderful and amazing clients/friends for making 2010 such a wonderful and enjoyable year. Here is to increase in 2011!!!




Snowball Dance 2010/Terre Haute Indiana Photographer

I’m about to get a little sappy here, so just hold on. 🙂

Terre Haute holds the Snowball Dance for the 6-8  graders in the Terre Haute area every December. So, this is a bittersweet post for me and “K”s mom as well. I have photographed “K” getting ready for the Snowball dance since she was in 6th grade.

“K” is an 8th grader and will go on to High School in the fall. I have worked with her mom for years and every year she asks me to document the fun and friendships while they get ready for their Cinderella moment. I’m sad that there won’t be anymore dance pictures to take of her…at least not for a couple of years anyway. I’m sure I’ll take prom pics when that time comes. 🙂

Enjoy my favorites!
