When Sarah comes to visit, I use it as an excuse to do some testing as she is very willing to play the role of any character I dream up. I happened to have a dress that fit her – yes even though I’m 28, I can still somehow manage to fit into the same clothes as a 13 year old. The dress had a slight vintage feel to it, so to continue the feel we curled some soft waves, braided a bit and made a wildflower crown.While many photographers have children of their own to photograph any time they wish, I do not yet have this opportunity, so Sarah makes for the perfect model to experiment with. Sarah and I explored various parts of the property surrounding my parent’s home and ended the woodland walk on the Skinny Road glowing with the evening sun.
Avant Gardens was the perfect spring location for this family session. The tall grasses from last summer were soft and golden among all the fresh green coming in. It provided a perfect backdrop for a bit of fun with the family. The children were all so sweet and I loved seeing how they interacted with one another. Having older brothers myself, I was happy to see how affectionate the boys were to their little sister.
This family is one of the sweetest I know. From the first time meeting them, they’ve extended a hand of kindness and friendship to Nathan and I. I admire them as Christian parents and think their four little one’s are wonderfully sweet. Here are some of my favorites from the session.
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!
