The Mansoori Girls are Growing!

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!

Mira Jane

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!

Baby Lucy

Hello there!

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!

The Beringer Family Has Grown!

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!

Nathan is One!

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!!

Sarai

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!  🙂

Baby N is Here!

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!

A Preview of What I’ve Been Up To…

Hey friends!

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!

In October, I got to meet the adorable newborn son of a friend from my hometown.

Addison and Nathan

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!

 

Here is Addison opening a birthday card she got from the mailbox.  :)

Bri & Kelsey

Bri has appeared on this blog twice before, and has proven to be pretty memorable.  When I tell people I’ve photographed the girl with the curly hair and blue eyes again, most of my friends remember exactly who I mean.  She’s a beauty!  And now she has an equally beautiful little sister!  It was so great to catch up with my friend (their mom) and the girls when I was “home-home” in Pennsylvania and they were in town for the missions conference for a week in July.  The girls had impressive endurance to make it through this photo shoot.  I had trouble narrowing down the photos to show you here… I hope you enjoy them!
