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!

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!

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Welcome back to my super outdated blog!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!

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

Sneak Peek: Lots to Come!

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!

Here is a recreation of a shot I took of three of my brother's children a few years ago.  More photos of my brother and sister-in-law's family coming soon!

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!

The Smith Family in the Fall

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!

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.

It was so fun to see how this little girl has grown since I took her six month photos in May.
