Merry Christmas to you! I have enjoyed this fantastic journey so far the past few months, and I'm excited for what is ahead. I'm continuing to practice, to grow and to learn, and I'm never bored! Thank you to my husband Reggie for your constant faith and positive outlook. Thank you to my family and friends for your love and support. And thank you to all of my clients for making my job so enjoyable and fun! I am so lucky and truly thankful to love what I do.

Tons of new ideas and exciting offerings are coming in 2009! Until then, here are some holiday photos that I would like to share. My husband has a very nice collection of nutcrackers. I love all of their unique expressions and craftsmanship. They were so kind to allow me to photograph them one afternoon!

Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! Joyeux Noel! Feliz Navidad!

Wishing you a magical Christmas!

What a warm, caring, fun family! There is no shortage of laughter in this household! Kevin, Jennifer, Max and Abbey radiate happiness and love. Yes, this may sound cheesy, but it's true! Just take a look for yourself, and you'll see exactly what I mean.

Handsome young man.

How could anyone say no to this face?

Daddy's little girl.

All bundled up for some quick photos outside.

Fun on the tire swing! Next time I'll have to catch a ride!

Thank you so much for sharing your day with me! Looking forward to next time!

P.S. Max, you were so right about being able to see my eye through my lens! Good eye! ;)

Love: Audrey + Phil + Stella

October 2008

Indianapolis, IN & Brown County, IN

Audrey and Phil are the perfect match. She's a teacher; he fights fires. Together they are dynamite! Two of the most caring people you'll ever meet, with a zest for life and all things fun and adventurous. They also have a sweet dog named Stella. I had the honor to capture the three of them this fall.

Stella demonstates poise and grace.

Phil, Audrey, Stella: The Three Musketeers

All eyes on Stella!

Fall. In love.

A special sunset for two special people.

Thank you, Audrey, Phil and Stella! I am so lucky to have you as my friends. You're the best!

P.S. Audrey and Phil were married June 16, 2007. In the whirlwind of the wedding day, no photos were taken of their rings. So we made it happen!

Gillian: Friend & Fellow Photographer

Pin It November 30, 2008
Indianapolis, IN

Meet Gillian! She was in photography class with me over the summer, and we hit it off. She is a teacher and photographer, truly an artist! We finally got together to discuss our photography journey and to get some portrait practice, of course! We braved the 30 degree weather, combined with rain, mist, and just sheer damp coldness, by the time we called it a day. Gillian had scoped out some awesome locations downtown. Take a look!

We would often resort to fits of laughter either due to the extreme cold or due
to the fact that at times we felt like we were getting senior pictures taken.

I could see this as an ad for Hollister. Don't you agree?

We had to get some jump shots.

Oh what a feeling! This is how we ended our day.
We both set up our tripods along the street and jumped several times.
Passers-by may have thought we were at cheerleading tryouts...or maybe just a little crazy!

Gillian, thank you for all of your support and encouragement! I'm so glad we got to hang out!

Thank you to everyone who made my first portrait party a huge success! What a fun day!

A big thank you to Mama Carolla's Old Italian Restaurant! Your hospitality and kindness are greatly appreciated, and I cannot thank you enough. I tried to capture the perfectly charming, cozy atmosphere so full of character, not to mention the delicious smells of garlic and freshly baked bread wafting throughout the restaurant. My husband and I look forward to dining there soon. I'm especially excited about dessert...tiramisu is my favorite! Grazie!

Thank you to my husband Reggie for all of his help and encouragement. He brought lunch and spare bulbs for my lights! Thank you so much, Reggie!

And thank you to my lovely assistants, Audrey and Ashley. Your friendship means the world to me. I really appreciate all of your help in making this a fun and successful day.

I must also say thank you to the families and friends who ventured out into the dreary, rainy day to spend some time with me. I can't wait to show you the rest of your photos! Thank you for making my day such a fun, exciting time - you are all truly blessed with adorable, loving families! And I'm honored to have shared this time with you.

Please check out all the photos from this unique event!

Lola was gracious enough to be my model so I could practice with a lens that I rented for the weekend. I had to work fast, because she doesn't like to be still for long!

Lola, you're beautiful! :)

Family: Leslie + Elijah

My dear friend Leslie and her son Elijah enjoyed some frolicking in the bright fall leaves on IU's gorgeous campus. Elijah has a birthday coming up soon! What a sweetheart!

Elijah loved playing in the leaves. It was so cute to watch him because at one point he was trying to give the leaves back to the trees. How sweet is that?!

It was great to visit you two! Can't wait to see you again!
