The Nedderman 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!








A November Day with the Fredells

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.  🙂


The Fritts Six

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!








Baby Brother on the Way

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!







The Franklin Family Has Grown!

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!!!

The Rest of 2016’s Photo Sessions

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!


Welcome to the world, little Evie!


Loved this rainbow session with my brother’s family!


I loved capturing these brothers together!


This family is a regular on the blog and I’ve loved watching them grow!


This little boy has grown so much since I took his newborn photos!


Repeat clients like this family are so fun to photograph!



I really appreciate it when co-workers trust me to capture Christmas card photos!


Here is another co-worker’s family that was so fun to photograph!


A Look Back at 2016

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!


Documenting my nephew’s new glasses and my niece at six months!


The Netts are a family of three now!



Samantha is one!


It was such a joy capturing the Dowells with their newborn!


The Moores are such a fun and beautiful family.  I loved catching up with them during our photo session!



I made a trip to PA this summer and loved catching up with these high school friends and their girls!


This family.  How I love the Baenzigers and what a joy it was to capture them as a family of four now!


These are my adorable birthday-sharing nieces, celebrating one and three together!

Thanks for stopping by, friends!

Remember 2015?

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!

A mini session with my great-niece at Thanksgiving.  🙂

Now there are seven!

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!


Daddy made the littlest one laugh!  I love capturing slightly candid moments like this.  :)

Welcome to the World, Liam!

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!IMG_2530wm








Such a beautiful mama!

I felt right at home spending the day with these friends and really enjoyed the time getting to know my newest baby buddy!

Had to get a photo of my buddy Liam and me!
