“The beauty of winter is that it makes you appreciate spring.” L.M. Montgomery

I know according to the calendar it says it is now spring, but you might have found that hard to believe with those gigantic snow flakes falling earlier today. Sarah was here last night, and we had to work on a few more additions to a personal project we’ve been working on for… over a year. She was a brave soul in her lace dress and spring jacket… in 35 degree weather. She agreed to cooperate with hair, makeup, and modeling, in less than ideal temperatures, for payment of warm cookies and milk. You got it.

With a winter-storm starting tonight, I’m enjoying a warm cup of cocoa, and editing a few images from today’s newborn session in North Judson. Meet baby Selah!

I’ve photographed these children a numbers of times over the three years I’ve been photographing. Look how they’ve grown! And goodness, look how much I’ve grown as a photographer! This, however, was my first time photographing the whole family. I have three older brothers, and this is my eldest. Fall color’s were definitely at their prime and we had some pretty locations for the session. Here are a few of my favorites from the session.


This Farmall has been in the family for some time. It was my Papaw’s on my moms side. I thought I’d share an image of it’s early days to note it’s importance. It’s been fully restored now and it’s quiet the beauty, if you’d say that about a tractor…

I Spy a Fairy in the Forest – North Judson IN Children’s Photographers

I love that this family traveled several hours to do their session on their family’s farm in Francesville. I love the idea of capturing the old home place and sharing your memories with your children. Another thing that struck me about this family is their love and joy. They really are a sweet family, and I’m so glad they chose me to photograph their story. Here’s a little sneak peek of some of our adventures that day…
