I had some more goodness at Lakeside Park this week! The Holderead family has some active little boys, which kept mom and dad busy (I’m sure they were exhausted after the session). But it made for some adorable photos!
My friend Angela & I dreamed up this Princess Unicorn Portrait session! Her family owns the adorable pony, and I brought the rest. It turned out SOOOO CUUUUUTE!!! We will definitely be planning some Princess Unicorn Mini Sessions in the spring! So be on the look out for sign ups if this is something your little lady would love!
The Pope family WON a portrait session with me when Krista entered a fund raiser raffle for the Troy Center School! I’m so glad our mutual love for the Troy Center brought us together for a family session on their beautiful property in Columbia City! The kitty really wanted to join in on a few photos! 😉 This pond is pretty special to the family, as Krista’s dad gifted the land to them shortly before he passed away last year. Now it holds so much sentimental value to them! I’m so glad we could take their family photos in such a significant spot!The jacket Krista is wearing belonged to her dad.Also! If you’re looking for a lab puppy for Christmas this year, these beautiful pups are having a litter very soon! And they’ll be ready to join your family for Christmas Eve!
This is the 5th year I’ve photographed the Bishop family! And they’re basically professionals at Valerie Joy Photography sessions now. Take a look, you’ll agree!This one is classic boy-dad interaction!
The Maggard Family has a pioneer side to them! This hard working couple owns and operates an apple orchard in Larwill, IN: School House Orchard! They sell their apples, honey, and home pressed apple cider at our local farmers market. But their biggest accomplishment is raising these two beautiful boys! They’re full of energy and you can tell they love growing up in this little slice of midwest paradise!
Today I’m sharing the Jordan family at their beautiful historic home in downtown Columbia City! AND their oldest son, Hale’s senior portraits at a friends home in town. We did back to back sessions, Senior & Family, which ends up saving you $100, as opposed to doing two separate 1 hour sessions!
I shot the Story family portraits on their property in Columbia City. We had beautiful sunlight through their mature trees, and their sparkling smiles just light up every photo!
They also chose to break up their session into 30 minutes of family photos, and 30 minutes of Weston’s senior photos. So you’ll see Wes’s individual shots sprinkled in throughout.Wes is joining the Air Force next year so we did a few shots in his USAF shirt. I love these shots because they have his childhood home behind him, and his future on his chest. So meaningful!
