As with every delayed blog post excuse I write, I’m a bit behind due to that whole full-time teacher thing I do. Nonetheless, I had to share these photos even if they’re a couple months late. When I was home in PA this summer, I had the chance to photograph my friends’ children one morning. You may remember Levi from some of my blog posts over the last couple years. It’s always so fun to look back and see how kids grow from year to year. 🙂 I’m so glad I was able to document this family again, and now with little sister Laurel to join the photos! I hope you enjoy these!
I’ve had the privilege of photographing my high school friend’s growing family over the last few years. Two years later, there’s an addition in these photos! While I was home in Pennsylvania a few weeks ago, I had a fun visit out to the farm to do a quick photo shoot of this beautiful crew. Photographing seven is good practice for me as I anticipate time with my sister’s family this fall! I hope you enjoy these few highlights from my time with them!
I’ve been photographing this family since their oldest daughter was six months old. Now there are three of them! It’s been a joy to watch them grow. Here are newborn photos of their newest addition, Samantha. I hope you enjoy the sweetness of these little ones and a few with their beautiful mama, too! 🙂
This little guy is one blessed baby! I’m a big fan of his parents and was so excited to go up to Fort Wayne at the beginning of June to meet him. Kendra and I have been great friends for sixteen years and it was a joy to meet this addition to David’s and her family and take some newborn photos of little Liam. I hope you enjoy these highlights from our time together! I bet you can figure out one of his dad’s favorite pastimes through these photos!
I felt right at home spending the day with these friends and really enjoyed the time getting to know my newest baby buddy!
Hello! At the beginning of June, I had a really fun time photographing my brother’s family as they anticipate the coming of a fifth child to their family. I know I’m biased, but this is honestly one of the cutest families on the planet. 🙂 I hope you enjoy these photos from our time together!
Hi there! It’s been a busy few months here. I’ve just returned from a cross-country road trip from Indiana to Los Angeles and have lots to share from that adventure! Here are some sneak peeks of sessions and travel posts I will be sharing soon. Stay tuned!
I got to spend Mother’s Day weekend with my great college friend, Kendra, and her husband, David in Fort Wayne. You may remember them from their engagement photos last year. A lot has happened since then including a beautiful wedding last summer and a son on the way. Well, their son has already been born this month (future clients take note… end of the school year Jenni needs a little extra time to catch up on sessions), but I did want to share some of the great maternity photos we got last month before I share pics of baby boy soon. 🙂
Last month I had a wonderful time catching up with the Mansoori family and seeing how their girls have grown since our last photo shoot. Lily continues to be a wonderful big sister to Layla, who has grown quite a bit since her newborn photos! It was really fun to photograph them in their element at home. For some of the photos, the girls wore their Persian dress up clothes, an adorable piece of their heritage that I really enjoyed documenting for them. I hope you enjoy these photos!
In continuing some of my recent posts, I’m still going through old photos from my Southeast Asia adventure in the summer of 2012. During my quick solo trip to Malacca (aka Melaka) City, in Malaysia I had a great time walking around photographing to my heart’s content. It was great eating at a delicious Indian restaurant (where I’m sure I looked quite foolish, not knowing for sure how to properly eat what I ordered) and taking in the sight of the canal from the back patio of the hotel where I stayed. Here are a few of my favorite shots from that time.
As mentioned in my previous post, some photos from my Southeast Asia adventure in July 2012 got lost in the shuffle of life and I’m finally getting back to editing them. Here are some photos from my quick trip to Malacca City (aka Melaka) in the Malaysian state of Malacca, northwest of Singapore. I concentrated my exploration in the touristy areas of Little India and Chinatown. I feel like this post contains a bit of sensory overload, but then I remember that’s kind of what my first day was like there. I don’t have my travel journal or travel book with me right now, so I apologize for not having more details about what these sights are, but I do hope you enjoy these photo highlights!
I’m home in Pennsylvania for my spring break this week and had a wonderful time visiting my niece and her husband on Saturday and meeting their new daughter, Mira, who is just over two weeks old. You may remember Mira’s parents from their wedding photos a few years back. I couldn’t resist the chance to take some photos of this family of three during my visit. Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!
Hi there! Welcome to my very random Friday blog post. I’m currently on spring break from teaching and I’ve had a chance to revisit some photos that I never got around to editing a while back. I just can’t bear the thought of having gone on such a fun adventure and not sharing the photos, so thanks for indulging me by checking out this throwback post…
Here’s some background: In June and July 2012, I had the awesome opportunity to travel to Southeast Asia as a recipient of a Lily Endowment Teacher Creativity Grant. You can learn more about the photography club I started and the great things I saw happening in Cambodia on the blog with much gratitude for the experiences the grant allowed me to have. One bonus of my trip was the time to travel to Singapore, visiting my cousin and her family. While there, I took a quick side trip to Malaysia, visiting the city of Malacca (also known as Melaka). When I returned from my southeast Asia adventure, my life got a little crazy, as did my photography business. I continued to teach, travel, and photograph, and found that time got away from me and I didn’t get to edit and share photos from my many adventures. So I’ve decided to revisit those photos and share some over the next few months. I hope you enjoy these somewhat outdated photos!
When I got off the bus in Malacca, I started to explore and was immediately drawn to this church, St. Peter’s. I think that after spending a couple weeks in Cambodia where Christian churches are uncommon, I found this church to be a novelty and enjoyed checking it out. While the date is somewhat in question, most believe that St. Peter’s was erected in 1710. I loved capturing the light pouring into the sanctuary and appreciated the more modern installation in front of the church remembering Jesus walking on water. I hope you enjoy these photos. More Malaysia photos will be coming soon!
In keeping with my birthday month tradition, here are some of my favorite memories made throughout February. This is my seventh go at documenting the fun parts of February (because, let’s face it, it’s a pretty depressing month weather-wise!) as I force others to celebrate along with me. 🙂 The last couple years are here and here on the blog. As you’ll see, the focus wasn’t on fancy photography, but on capturing the memories. Thanks to all who helped make it a great month!
Little Lucy made her debut in January and I really enjoyed documenting her newborn stage and her family of four in these photos from the end of January. It was such a great excuse to get to know the wonderful Smith family. I had trouble narrowing down the photos for this blog post as the girls did such a great job and I ended up with a lot of sweet moments. Hope you enjoy these photos of this lovely family!
Hello there! I’m finally getting a bit caught up on photos and wanted to share photos of these great people with you. You may remember this family from my trip to Cambodia a couple years ago. They were home for a few months and I had the pleasure of catching up with them about life in Phnom Penh and really enjoyed meeting their newest son last month! We had a great time borrowing our friend’s parents’ home for a quick photo shoot to document the start of this new stage of life now that they’re a family of four. It was great to see how their oldest son has grown and little Elim did a great job looking cute for these photos. 🙂 Enjoy the pics!
Hello there! I hope you’re all staying warm and are enjoying February! Last month I had the privilege of taking photos of Mr. Nathan when he turned one year old. This family is one of my repeat clients and I so appreciate the chance to document their family milestones! Enjoy these photos and stay warm out there!!
I had the fantastic privilege last month of photographing my high school friends’ family. They recently returned from adopting their two adorable daughters and I had a wonderful time doing a little photo shoot with them. You may remember Samantha from our Hawaiian adventure last spring. We’ve been friends since junior high and have stacked up quite a few fun shared memories and travels over the years. I’m so glad she and Jeremy asked me to document their first official family photos for them!
In my last post, I showed you some sites from the city of Tegucigalpa from my trip in November. I had the chance to leave the city a couple times to visit a school and coffee plantation in a cloud forest, as well as going to my friends’ wedding at a beautiful place called Casa Blanca in the village of Santa Lucia. I’ve also included a few personal photos at the end since the focus of my trip was more on people than places and I wanted to share a little bit of the great time I had with some of my favorite people who happen to live in Honduras. 🙂
I spent my Thanksgiving break in Tegucigalpa, Honduras visiting friends and enjoying the country that I consider my second home. I taught first grade at International School of Tegucigalpa from 2003 to 2006 and love returning every few years to see my friends and former students. Tegucigalpa often gets dogged as not being a very picturesque city (and also having a really short runway, which makes for very adventurous plane landings), but I have to say that through my time there I’ve learned to love good old “Tegus” and the beauty it possesses. This post has some of my favorite photos from the time I spent in the city back in November. I’ll do a separate post soon with some highlights from my time outside the city. Enjoy!
While I was in Honduras in November, I was able to stop by and visit my friend Pam, her husband, and their two children. Pam and I went to Taylor University together and spent our first few years teaching at the same school in Honduras. It’s always great to catch up with her and reminisce. 🙂 Her daughter was just a couple weeks old when I visited, so we did a mini newborn photo shoot with little Sarai. I’m so glad she was sleepy and we were able to get these photos. Here are some of the highlights. Enjoy the preciousness! 🙂
The Smith Family braved a chilly day with me for some family photos in November and I’m so glad they did! You may remember my coworker’s lovely family from their family photos last summer. I love how Tatiana dressed up her little one for these photos and I hope you enjoy them!
As I said before, I’m a bit behind with blogging. However, I figure it’s better late than never when it comes to sharing photos from the newborn and family session I did with this cute little guy! Last fall, I posted maternity photos for this family, Kara and Drew. Kara and I grew up in the same town in PA and now we both live in the Indy area. It’s a fun connection and I love that they asked me to capture their growing family in photos. Their son, Grant, came along in September and I really enjoyed photographing their life together when I visited their home in October. Here are a few of my favorite photos of them together. Enjoy!
I’ve been absent from this blog for a bit and have slightly lightened my photography load for the time being to focus on teaching this fall/winter. Here is a sneak peek of a couple shoots I’ve done over the last couple months and the trip from Honduras that I took over Thanksgiving. I’ll be posting more from these soon!
Hope you enjoyed a preview of what I’ll be posting more of soon! Have a great Christmas season!
Hello there! I’m so excited to share these photos from such a great family. You may remember past posts I’ve added of Addison and Nathan growing up. It was great to meet up with this family again to capture Addison as a three-year-old and the family together. I hope you enjoy these shots from our time together!
