These friends are regulars here on the blog. I can’t believe I’ve been watching their family grow over the past eight years now. We had a fun morning taking these photos for their Christmas card. It’s been so fun to become friends with them thanks so this side gig of mine!
Repeat clients are so fun, both because it’s so fun to catch up with them and to watch the kids grow over the years. And these boys have grown up quite a bit since our last session!
This fall we braved the hordes of photographers with families on a beautiful fall day at Holcomb Gardens on Butler’s campus and had a fun time exploring. The Neddermans make my job easy!
My newest grandniece (yes, you read that right) entered the world in September and I was thrilled to be able to meet her and photograph this adorable family when Charlotte was ten days old. It’s especially fun to photograph a family with their newborn when they happen to be part of my family! 🙂
I hope you enjoy this glimpse of my sweet grandniece and her loving parents!
It was so much fun to return to the Franklin home and photograph them with their newest baby! It’s been a delight to see them grow through the years! Enjoy the latest photos of this beautiful family!
A couple years ago, I loved documenting my friends’ newborn daughter, Evelyn. This past December, I was able to photograph this family again, now with their newest daughter. It’s a joy to help my friends capture memories of their families with photos like these. 🙂
Following an extremely rainy day in December, I was so grateful for a clear day in which to meet up with my friends from high school and take some photos of their family! We had a great time at Highbanks Metro Park in Columbus, OH. I love watching these girls grow up. Click here to see one of our previous photo sessions. 🙂
Matt and Ashley have been a part of my life for the past eight years. We’ve been in the same community group through church, weekly investing in each other’s lives, and I’m so grateful they’re my friends. I had a fantastic time photographing them with their daughter in their beautiful home this fall!
This family appears frequently on the blog as they’ve grown the last few years. I loved documenting this fun stage of their family with these photos in the fall!
I had a really delightful time photographing this lovely family this past fall at Turkeyfoot Nature Park. I had taken their photos a few years ago, so it was great fun to see them again and to see how the boys have grown!
I loved getting to see the Sattlers a few months ago and capturing their family in action at Marott Park! They’ve come a long way since I photographed their wedding a few years back and have added a couple adorable kids to their family!
In the spring, I had a great time catching up with my hometown friend Kara and her family. It was wonderful to meet their littlest one (you may recall them from these photos before his arrival). I hope you enjoy these photos from our time together at Flat Fork Creek Park!
I loved having the chance to catch up with my friends, the Fredells, in November! You’ve seen them before on this blog here and here. It’s really a joy to see their girls grow and catch up with them whenever we’re all home-home in PA. 🙂
Hello there! I’ve loved getting back into family photography this fall and had a great time documenting this growing family, some of my most loyal clients! This sweet family welcomed their fourth child recently and I loved capturing his cuteness in these photos!
This family has made quite a few appearances on my blog! It’s so fun to capture them as they grow. True confession: Baby boy has already arrived and is pretty much ready to drive at this point due to my delay in posting here. Ok, it’s not quite that extreme… I took these photos last spring before baby boy’s summer arrival (while I was out of town, sadly). 🙂
We had a great time getting these family photos in Indy. I always enjoy reminiscing with Kara about our shared hometown in Pennsylvania and their little one has become my buddy! I look forward to twice the fun next time we’re able to hang out!
Hey there, friends!
I’m alive!! I thought it was time for me to take a break from educating the future of America (and traveling all summer) to update this blog and let you know that I’m still around and taking photos. 🙂
Though greatly delayed (I promise I’m more prompt when it comes to photo shoots with clients), here are highlights from my time with the Franklin family this year. They’ve grown a bit since our last session together!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
There are more family photography and travel photos coming soon!!!
Hello, my friends!
I’m getting my photography act together and wanted to get my blog up-to-date so I can share more recent sessions next. Here is proof that I did something other than travel photography in 2016. 🙂 I hope you enjoy these lovely families that I photographed this past fall!
There’s nothing like an icy day trapped at home to give me the time I’ve needed all year to catch up this blog!
With apologies for the slightly haphazard style of all of this, here is my attempt to catch up the blog so I can be more up-to-date on posting recent photo sessions, as well as recent travel (which is soon!).
I hope you enjoy the recap. I hope to be back with more soon.
Merry Christmas to all!
Thanks for stopping by, friends!
Hey there, friends!
Welcome back to my super outdated blog! 🙂 As many of you know, 2015 was a tough year for me as I adjusted to my dad having passed away and continued to work and photograph on the side. This blog took a backseat to other things. This post is my attempt to catch the blog up on the photography that I did that year so this blog can continue to showcase examples of my work. Thanks for your patience as I get my act together. Highlights from my cross-country road trip will be coming up soon!
Here are some of my favorite shots from last fall’s sessions. I hope you enjoy the look back!
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!
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’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!
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!
