A blooming orchard in Southwest Michigan seems like the perfect place to spread a quilt out and enjoy and cup of tea or a book. Springhope Farm once again made the perfect location. While the weather was rather chilly and wind brisk, the sun was delightful and the girls were thankful for it’s rays. Blooms this year were a month early so we thought we should take advantage of their beauty even with the chilly temps. Thanks for braving the cool weather girls, you’re beautiful!

I met the McIndoo family at Wilson Park in Mishawaka, for one last romp in the great outdoors while the weather was still nice. Since there’s two adorable little ladies in the family, we started on a hillside under a tree with a girly sort of setting. However, this setting did not last long, because the eldest was quite the explorer. We ran all over the open field, and then ventured into the woods to chase that golden evening glow that I love so much. Here are my favorites from the session!

 

This family portrait session took place on the Yellow River Road property. The warm light in this session was just wonderful! It reminded me a bit of Rembrandt’s colors. The Banks family is one family I loved working with. They just happen to be my family but I really do think they are kind, down to earth people. I noticed a while ago that their children are the most well behaved kids ever. I’m told that not only are they good kids, but they’re really smart. Natalie, a natural around the camera, loves to read and is a bit shy, like me! Noah has always been in high ability classes, loves sports, and playing guitar with his dad. Whether its grocery shopping or traveling, the family loves to do things together. They even agreed to have a picnic with my mini homemade apple pies. I hope they’ll love these images as much as I do! Enjoy!

P.S. Keep an eye out for another blog post on a special little project we worked on with this family.

It really is gorgeous weather for a family portrait. Here is a little sneak peek of a session from this past weekend. More to come!

This Little One’s Session took place at Centennial Park in Plymouth, Indiana. Little Miss Charlotte showed up with sweet smiles and was full of curiosity. It’s always fun to see how a little one reacts to a little setting made just for them. Charlotte arranged the pumpkins several times and read storybooks upside down. It really must be the funniest story when it’s read upside down. The whole day had a bit of a Winnie the Pooh feel to it. I love how she held her little hands in the first image. After our mini set on the lawn, we went on an adventure and explored Greenway Trail. We found little green nooks in the forest, open fields, and areas of field grass with goldenrod. We ended the session in a tree, which you’ll see isn’t quite like Pooh Bears, but it still made for a perfect place to pretend.
