Jacob’s Senior Portraits . Ft. Wayne IN Senior Photographer, Columbia City IN Senior Photographer

Fort Wayne senior photographer foster park_0115Jacob and I went to Foster Park for his senior session last week.  Jacob would consider himself more of an athlete than a photography model, but I’m pretty sure no one can tell, because he did a great job listening to my instruction and together we created some super handsome portraits!

If you don’t feel comfortable in front of the camera, I want to reassure you that it doesn’t matter!!  I am here to guide you through every pose.  I want every client to know they can trust me to create beautiful photos, whether you know what you’re doing or feel a little unsure (like most of us do when the camera is pointed at us).  That’s what I’m here for!! Fort Wayne senior photographer foster park_0116Fort Wayne senior photographer foster park_0117Fort Wayne senior photographer foster park_0118Fort Wayne senior photographer foster park_0119Fort Wayne senior photographer foster park_0120Fort Wayne senior photographer foster park_0124Fort Wayne senior photographer foster park_0121Fort Wayne senior photographer foster park_0122Fort Wayne senior photographer foster park_0123Fort Wayne senior photographer foster park_0125

Karina’s Senior Portraits . Ft. Wayne IN Senior Photographer, Sarasota FL Senior Photographer, Columbia City IN Senior Photographer

Karina has grown into such a beautiful, smiley, sweet young woman!  I can’t believe she’ll be a senior in High School in a few short weeks!  I met her when she was only 3 years old (as she’s my husband’s cousin).

She killed it at her session at Matea Park yesterday!  She was hoping for flowers, and we found plenty!  And then we ended the session splashing in a river.  Super fun!  Check out this gorgeous girl!

Baby Jade . Ft. Wayne IN Newborn Photographer, Columbia City IN Newborn Photographer

Baby Jade is a precious little bundle!  SO cute with her little brown spikey hair and soft newborn skin.  I definitely sneak in my snuggles when I shoot babies.

Jade was 4 weeks early but still 7lbs!!  Mom was glad she didn’t go to full term with this little lady.  And with Dad deployed in the Air Force, they’ll be meeting for the first time this week.  I imagine it will be a tearful meeting!!  Fort Wayne newborn photographer Columbia City_0133Fort Wayne newborn photographer Columbia City_0134Fort Wayne newborn photographer Columbia City_0140Fort Wayne newborn photographer Columbia City_0135Fort Wayne newborn photographer Columbia City_0136Fort Wayne newborn photographer Columbia City_0137Fort Wayne newborn photographer Columbia City_0138Fort Wayne newborn photographer Columbia City_0139
