Families

Payne Family . Ft. Wayne IN Family Photographer, Columbia City IN Family Photographer

While back in my hometown of Sarasota Florida last month I did an extended family session for my Aunt & Uncle and all of their kids and grandkids.  (I’m a tad partial to these folks!  I love them and miss them so much!!)

An Extended Family session is 2 hours long which allows plenty of time for multiple poses of every combination!

Combinations I typically take: the BIG family, individual families, kids, individual kids, couples, Grandma & Grandpa with the grandkids, adult siblings & spouses, and any other cute moments that happen naturally! fort wayne family photographer_0020fort wayne family photographer_0021fort wayne family photographer_0022fort wayne family photographer_0023fort wayne family photographer_0024fort wayne family photographer_0025fort wayne family photographer_0026fort wayne family photographer_0027fort wayne family photographer_0028fort wayne family photographer_0029fort wayne family photographer_0030fort wayne family photographer_0031fort wayne family photographer_0032fort wayne family photographer_0033fort wayne family photographer_0034fort wayne family photographer_0035

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

This was my first time working with the Platt family.  And I love them already!  We had a beautiful evening shooting on their gorgeous property.  They have three adorable and energetic boys, which always keeps thing fun and interesting.  And mom and dad kept a great laid back attitude during the whole shoot.  (which is hard, as a parent, I KNOW!). Well done, guys! Fort Wayne family photographer_0160Our session was mostly focused on baby Hayes since he hadn’t had a portrait session in a while.  But we also squeezed in some other combinations of the whole family and the brothers, too!Fort Wayne family photographer_0161Fort Wayne family photographer_0162Fort Wayne family photographer_0163Fort Wayne family photographer_0164Fort Wayne family photographer_0165Fort Wayne family photographer_0166Fort Wayne family photographer_0167Fort Wayne family photographer_0168Fort Wayne family photographer_0169Fort Wayne family photographer_0170Fort Wayne family photographer_0171Fort Wayne family photographer_0172Fort Wayne family photographer_0173Fort Wayne family photographer_0174

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
