Morris-Butler House Engagement | Kathy + Mike

Pin It

One week from today, my amazing brother-in-law Mike will marry his perfect match and woman of his dreams, Kathy!  I couldn't ask for a more sweet, kind, caring, down-to-earth sister-in-law!  Those are just a few words that describe Mike's bride-to-be!  And she makes Mike so completely happy.  When they are together, they share little glances.  They beam, laugh at each other's jokes, and smile the biggest smiles.  Seeing them share such love and happiness is so refreshing and so wonderful to witness.  Mike has been keeping a daily countdown to "I do!" on his Facebook page, and Kathy told me she jokingly said to him that he's counting down his last days of freedom.  All joking aside, Mike assured Kathy that he couldn't be more excited to make her his wife, and that he'd marry her the very next day if he could!  Isn't that so sweet?!  I'm beyond excited for their Big Day!  They've been planning a beautiful seaside ceremony surrounded by their closest friends and family, including Reggie as the Best Man.  Have I mentioned that I'm excited?!  To celebrate, let's take a look at some of my favorites from their October engagement session at the historic Morris-Butler House in downtown Indianapolis.  Kathy and Mike, it has been such an honor to document and share in this exciting time in your lives!  Sooo excited for you both!!!

As you can see, we had gorgeous golden fall color all around!


I loved this whole series with Kathy and Mike surrounded by rich reds, bright greens, and brilliant yellows!  Two more favorites here!

Isn't Kathy's engagement ring beautiful?  Fun fact:  Mike and Reggie's dad had surprised their mom a pair of sparkling diamond earrings on their anniversary.  And now we are both lucky and proud to  have these truly meaningful family heirlooms as a reminder of the love our family shared years ago. 

You two are so cute!

More favorites!

Kathy and Mike, Reggie and I are so thrilled to be a part of your wedding day!  
Love you both!  
7 days!!!

Noblesville Lifestyle Portrait Session | Brothers | Eli + Riley

Pin It

We had a lovely early summer evening for a portrait session of these two handsome brothers!  Please give a warm welcome to Eli (4 years old) and Riley (2 years old)!  They are completely adorable, which you'll see for yourselves in just a moment!  I love their bright, sparkly eyes and their sweet personalities!  Eli enjoyed posing and hamming it up for the camera, while his younger brother was a little more shy and serious.  I was instantly smitten with both of them, and it is obvious that they are the best of friends!  It was a joy to meet them and their sweet parents, Brooke and Mike.  A huge thank you to a dear client of mine, Jenny, for sending another amazing family to me!  I'm so blessed and thankful to meet new and wonderful clients and friends through this job of mine!  And now for some favorites from our session!

Introducing the handsome and stylish, Eli and Riley!  And the first of many favorites!

Riley!!! Those eyes!  Looooove!

Hi there, Eli!!!

Brothers and best of friends!

I just cannot get enough of Eli's dimples and Riley's soft little pout!  Could they be any cuter?!

And with this, my heart melted into a zillion pieces!  Another favorite!

Brooke, Mike, Eli, and Riley, it was so wonderful to meet you all!  Thank you so much for sharing your evening with me!  What an honor it was to photograph your adorable little guys!!!  Can't wait to see you all again!
