Family: Mike + Melody + Anabelle + Emilia

Pin It It's been a hot, hot, HOT summer!  And the day of this amazing, adorable, fun family's session was no exception!  In fact, we were forced to cut our time short because of the heat and humidity.  Fortunately, there was absolutely no shortage of smiles or laughter!  Mike, Melody, Anabelle, and Emilia, you are all so, so wonderful! I just love your genuine family connection.  Here are more images from our (very!) warm and sunny morning!

We'll just start off with one of my favorites.  So happy!

Tickle time!  I love this one!



The light on this day was just amazing, and I didn't want it to end!

Hi Emilia! 

Sweet sisters

Anabelle showed me her goofy face...and I love it!

Don't you love the perfectly summery vintage skirts Anabelle and Emilia are wearing? I do!
They were handmade by their Grandmother. 
I don't think they could be any more perfect for a summer outing!

Daddy's girls

I love my job because of moments like this...
It makes my heart smile.

Mike, Melody, Anabelle, and Emilia, I just adore you guys! 
Thank you for rocking out your session, despite the heat and humidity,
which we know all too well here in the Midwest. 
Can't wait to see you again!
P.S. Anabelle, did you make your pine cone bird-feeder yet? :)

Newborn: Emily Claire: 8 days

Pin It Earlier this summer, I met Heather and Brian.  To say that their maternity session was amazing is kind of an understatement.  They are two of the nicest, happiest people I've had the privilege of meeting.  Fast-forward to July 9th...their baby girl, Emily Claire, made her first appearance.  And I was so excited to meet her!  Click here to see Emily's Sneak Peek.  Let's take a look at some more images from her Newborn Session!  Without further adieu, please welcome Emily Claire!

Can't resist perfect little teeny tiny baby toes!

Emily's nursery is completely adorable!  Just look at some of the details!

Emily, you are precious.  Absolutely precious.

"Sweet dreams"

Heather and Brian traveled to Italy for their honeymoon, so of course we had to incorporate that!
Emily, I don't want to ruin any surprises, but I can tell you that your parents got you something very special from that trip...! ;)

Two natural beauties.

I love personalizing newborn sessions, well, every session, for that matter. One night I couldn't sleep because my mind was in a hyper-creative-brainstorming-idea-swirling-a-million-miles-an-hour kind of state, when it hit me...An eye chart!!!  An eye  chart would be "the" perfect little something for Emily. It just so happens that Emily's dad is an optometrist. I used her name and all the details about the day she was born. Score!  And my favorite! :)

Sooo sleepy! What a perfect little yawn!

A *huge* thank you to Heather and Brian for trusting in me to do this next photo! 
Please be assured that the baby's safety is my priority.

Emily Claire, you are such a precious, adorable gift!  
What a perfect little sweetheart for two wonderful parents!
Congratulations, Heather and Brian!  I'm so happy for you guys!  I'm truly honored 
to document your amazing family, and I can't wait to see you all again soon!

Going to the Fair!

Pin It It's August!  And you know what that means...time for the Indiana State Fair!  Each year they have a photography contest, where hundreds of photographers of all ages with all levels of experience, submit their work for others to see.  Each year, I browse the photography entries and promise myself that 'next year' I'll have the courage to enter the contest.  Well, I did it!  So wish me luck!  And if you happen to go to the Fair this year, take a look through all of the amazing work - not only photography, but arts and crafts of all kinds - that fills the Home and Family Arts building.  Antiques, painting, fibers, sewing, cakes, and more!  So inspirational!  There is so much talent here in the State of Indiana!  I can't wait to go soak up some inspiration and see all the beautiful work that fills the halls...and enjoy some fair food too, of course!

Going to the Fair soon? What are you looking forward to the most - the food? the rides? the exhibits?
