Comingore Family . Ft. Wayne IN Family Photographer, Sarasota FL Family Photographer, Columbia City IN Family Photographer

I first photographed the Comingore family 5 years ago when little Zeke was a newborn!  (the little guy in grey)  I love seeing them grow year after year, now Zane being a teenager, and little Remi the new “baby” in the family.  We had a sweaty but gorgeous evening together in Sarasota last week!

The Butterfield’s . Ft. Wayne IN Family Photographer, Sarasota FL Family Photographer, Columbia City IN Family Photographer

David & Maddie are too cute!  Adorable to look at, so sweet to chat with, and so loving toward each other.  It’s such a pleasure to be around that kind of relationship.  And it shines through in their photos!  It so fun to add a little “activity” (or two) into your photo session.  This lemonade picnic and tandem bike ride are so classic and romantic! fort wayne photographer lemonade picnic tandem bike bicycle_0101fort wayne photographer lemonade picnic tandem bike bicycle_0102fort wayne photographer lemonade picnic tandem bike bicycle_0104fort wayne photographer lemonade picnic tandem bike bicycle_0103fort wayne photographer lemonade picnic tandem bike bicycle_0105fort wayne photographer lemonade picnic tandem bike bicycle_0106fort wayne photographer lemonade picnic tandem bike bicycle_0107fort wayne photographer lemonade picnic tandem bike bicycle_0108fort wayne photographer lemonade picnic tandem bike bicycle_0109fort wayne photographer lemonade picnic tandem bike bicycle_0110fort wayne photographer lemonade picnic tandem bike bicycle_0111fort wayne photographer lemonade picnic tandem bike bicycle_0112fort wayne photographer lemonade picnic tandem bike bicycle_0113

The Webster’s: Day in the Life . Ft. Wayne IN Family Photographer, Sarasota FL Family Photographer, Warsaw IN Family Photographer

I flew back to my hometown in April, and while I was there I got to visit a dear friend.  A few years ago, her family moved out to the country, and she and her husband have really established a homestead out there; compete with a homeschool room, goats, chickens, bunnies, and amazing home design everywhere.  Becca & Erik are so talented!

This shoot was a typical “Day in the Life” of Becca and her two children.  Unfortunately, Erik couldn’t be in on the session because he was working.  But the other three were amazing models!fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0196fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0197Follow Becca’s Homeschooling journey on Instagram: @mirthandqueryfort wayne family photographer home shcool_0198fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0199fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0200fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0202fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0221fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0201fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0203fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0204fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0205fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0206fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0207fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0208fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0209fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0210fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0215fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0211fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0212fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0213fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0214fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0216fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0217fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0218fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0219fort wayne family photographer home shcool_0220

“Mommy & Me” Mini Sessions . Ft. Wayne IN Family Photographer, Sarasota FL Family Photographer, Warsaw IN Family Photographer

These mini sessions were fast and furious!  Some kids were into it, some…not as much.  Thus is the nature of children, unpredictable.

But what was so beautiful was every mother’s (or grandmother’s) response to seeing her photo gallery upon delivery.  Fussy or goofy, cooperative or going banana’s, we just love our babies!  And to see us with them in photographs tugs at our hearts in a strong way….

“I’m gonna die! We LOVE the photos. Thank you so much!”

“I just ❤️ LOVE the new photos!  Thank you so much!  You’re the best!”

“Oh. My! Love them ALL!!”

  “You’re a magic worker. You somehow captured my love and his joy even with a fussy “need a nap” baby.”

“These are fantastic!  Thanks you so much!! You’re a magician!  I was there for that shoot!  It was pure chaos, hahaha!”

Savannah is 7! . Ft. Wayne IN Family Photographer, Sarasota FL Family Photographer, Warsaw IN Family Photographer

Savannah turned 7 last month!  And she was such a willing model for her “7-year-old” photo shoot!  This girl is a performer and had lots of pose ideas for us to try out!  Such as: Cartwheels, Splits, Jumping on the Trampoline, and the ‘ol hands-in-the-air gymnastics pose.

After those fun poses….(insert crying laughing emoji) we tried a few of my boring ideas.  😉 Love ya, Savannah!

“Mommy & Me” Mini Sessions! Coming in May!

mommy&me2

Justine & her girls were the perfect models to demonstrate what a “Mommy & Me” mini session will be like.  I’ll be shooting in my home with a cream backdrop for a simple, classic look where all of the focus is on the sweet interactions between a mother and her children.  Edited galleries will be delivered before Mother’s Day.

Contact me to snag one of the time slots!

(Gift Certificates also available if you’d like to give this mini session as an early Mother’s Day gift to a mother in your life.)

Mali’s 4th Birthday . Ft. Wayne IN Family Photographer, Sarasota FL Family Photographer, Warsaw IN Family Photographer

My Mali Lu turns 4 this week, and we partied last weekend like real fine ladies!

We invited Mali’s best girl friends, and had make-overs, tea time, and a glamor shoot!  These little princesses were all about it!  It was so cute!!

I want to give a special thanks to Maddie of MBO+D for helping me design and pull off this party for my girl.  If you want to check out her services, visit her website here.

The party decor was a combination of items we pulled from my house, and items Maddie brought.  We also borrowed tea cups from Nana to make it super special and fine!!
