A few weeks ago on an extremely hot day I photographed the Lauterbach family downtown on the Canal. I had a fun time with this family. We did several shots along the Canal and then walked over to Lucas Oil stadium. They have season tickets as well as a brick at the stadium so it was really fun to incorporate this part of their lives in the session.
On August 21st I photographed Nicole and Joe's wedding at The White River Gardens downtown next to the Indianapolis Zoo. This was my first time shooting at the Gardens and I could not have asked for a more beautiful location to shoot a wedding at. Everywhere you turn is a beautiful shot. I have another wedding here in October and I am so excited to go back. Nicole and Joe put together a really beautiful wedding and despite a small rain delay the moment Nicole began to walk down the aisle the sun came out in full force. It was such a beautiful day and I can not thank them enough for having me as a part of their day! Congratulations Nicole & Joe!
This is a sure sign of how far behind I am on my blog. These are Nicole and Mike's maternity pictures as well as pictures of their new daughter Leila at just one week old. I photographed Nicole and Mike's wedding last June. I was so thrilled to hear that they were expecting. We did a Maternity session a few weeks ago and last week I went back to their home to meet and photograph their new daughter Leila who could not be more adorable with her long black hair! I also love that Mike's other daughter was in town and able to be a part of the pictures. I am so excited for Nicole and Mike and can't wait to see Leila's first year since they will be doing the Watch Me Grow Plan. Stay tuned!
Last weekend I photographed some friends of ours and their little boy Eddie. I think almost all children are cute but Eddie is absolutely adorable. We shot at my new favorite location for portraits behind the Boradripple Art Center. The grounds have so much to offer as far as trees, shade, sculptures, rocks, benches, flowers you name it. We tried our best to incorporate the family dog in some shots but the nearby squirrels made it virtually impossible. I can't wait to see what this location looks like in the fall. I hope to do a lot more portrait there in the future.
On 7.11.09 I photographed Katie and John's wedding. I had done engagement pictures for them in Lafayette last year so I was really excited for this wedding. It is amazing that Katie still hired me after our first meeting when I locked us out of the studio but she decided to go with me and it has been a pleasure working with her and John ever since. Their wedding had so many fun and interesting details but I especially loved Katie's wedding tennis shoes that she wore the whole day. The ceremony was held at Danville Christian Church. When we arrived it was pouring down rain and thundering but by the time they exited the church the sun came out and the day turned out beautiful. I truly loved working with this couple. They were so much fun and I can't wait to meet their newest edition.. Zeke the miniature Goldendoodle who arrives this fall. Congratulations Katie & John!
A few weeks ago I did this backyard portrait of the Smith/Jaynes family. The family had everyone in town for the weekend and we did a family portrait with the parents, kids and grandchildren. I will begin scheduling portraits for Fall sessions very soon if anyone is interested in a session for holiday cards and/or gifts!
