I could tell right away that this couple had a tender sweetness about them. Amy and I had collaborated through email and various Pinterest boards for this session. I love when clients and I have similar visions for their session. Amy wanted to incorporate things that were meaningful, like a quilt her grandmother made, and certain scriptures from the Bible. I knew  I needed an open field of something tall and swaying. I found the perfect location in San Pierre, Indiana, and it even had a field of sunflowers, as well as an open field of queen anne’s lace. We set out a bit before sunset, and even though the forecast called for clear weather, it quickly clouded up. I try before many of my sessions to pray and ask God to be my master lighter. Because I am a natural light photographer I cannot control the lighting, so I work with it and learn how to best use it. I remember seeing those clouds and thinking, okay God, you must have a plan. And He did! When I started processing the images I saw it right away. The sky was vivid and romantic, which really sets the tone to these passionate images. God can definitely produce a scene that metaphorically shows us the love a couple has for one another. Thanks Amy and Brandon for letting me capture your sweet love story!

 

 

 

It’s been a busy couple of weeks here, but I wanted to share a sneak peek from this weekends newborn session… Meet Colton! More to come!

Autumn and David are some of the funnest people I’ve met. They’re the type that instantly make you feel comfortable, and I think the world needs more people like Autumn and David. Their light hearted personalities mesh together perfectly. After being married nearly four years myself, I certainly appreciate the humor they have with one another. We met up for the engagement session at Chesapeake Run Golf Club in North Judson. HOT! It had to be over 100 degrees that day, but it was b e a u t i f u l out. It created a soft haze over the hills at the golf course, and the sunset was just lovely. I have to be honest, this was maybe my 3rd trip ever to a golf course… and I don’t think I had ever been on a golf cart before that day. It was a blast! I really loved the playful idea of incorporating something that the couple both loved into the session. I think we ended up with some stunning memories! Congratulations Autumn and David!


What a fun location for a little one’s/maternity session! Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum in North Judson was the perfect place for this family. There were plenty of places to explore and all the bright colors made it all the more interesting. I’m so glad the mom suggested it! Because the location was already so rich with things to keep a toddler busy, I scaled down on the props. I brought along a vintage suitcase, a quilt, and a few cars from my dads vintage train set. Although I live in North Judson, and had passed by the station numerous times, I had not actually stopped to see how cool the place was. I think this handsome toddler had a blast exploring!
