Craft Family - Vintage Truck & Fall

One of my favorite sessions to date!  I met Chad & Kristy when they brought their little guy in for his newborn session.  They are such a great family!  Up for anything.  I was excited to be able to meet up with them again this time to do a fall family session.  Then she told me we were going to be able to use an old Ford truck in that session and I was even more excited!  And what a fun day it was!

 Kristy & Chad - Thanks for sharing Ashdyn's milestones with me along with your family!  I had a great time!  Can't wait to see you all in the future!!

I hope you enjoy your gallery....there are A LOT of canvas worthy shots!!  <3 br="">
On that note, I'll leave you with these two images....ENJOY!

This sweet little girl "Ava" was the other winner to the newborn contest.  She came to the studio at 11 days old.  She wanted to be awake for her pictures but we were finally able to get some pictures of her resting. Isn't she just beautiful?!

So happy to introduce - My niece Raela!

My baby brother and his wife were expecting #4 and had tried multiple times to find out the baby's gender.  To no avail she kept them guessing until her birthday.  On June 13, 2013, my niece, Raela Mae, entered this world.  My brother's 3rd daughter and my late grandma's namesake, she couldn't be more perfect.  We're all in love!

Ashdyn ~ 7 days new

On Saturday, May 25th, I was lucky enough to get to snuggle the sweetest little guy!  It's been awhile since I've had a newborn boy in the studio!

While mom and I were ready to get to taking those sweet squishy face pictures Mr. A was NOT! ;-)  He wanted to visit and look around at all the new surroundings.  I'm certain he was afraid he'd miss something if he fell asleep.  LOL.  After being peed on twice and making sure I couldn't use one of the blankets for the rest of the session he was ready to get snuggly and sleep.  Once he slept he was game for anything!

He's perfect.  He has gorgeous little features.  Those lips.  Those tiny little toes.  Those sweet little baby hands.  All perfect! 

Congratulations again, Mom & Dad!  Hope your enjoying your precious little bundle!!! <3 p="">

From Belly to baby....

I recently had a maternity session with my cousin and her husband.  Fast forward a few weeks and they welcomed Miss Layla into the world a few weeks early.  We did her session yesterday which was actually her EDD week.  What a perfect little sweetheart. 

She slept so soundly throughout the session and let us move and snuggle her without protest.  Oh, I take that back she didn't want me to mess with posing her hands but other than that she was all good. :) 


There's nothing more precious than a new little babe to snuggle.  Congratulations Raylin & Nathan she's perfect! 


From belly...



This was my actual first studio session!  <3 br="br">
 I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!! Remember to click the picture to view full image.

Raylin & Nathan - Maternity

I was so excited to hear that my cousin and her husband were expecting again.  And even happier when they announced they were expecting a baby girl!  She will join a very loving family with big brother, Nathan & a very proud big sister, Bella! Can't wait to meet her!!

We decided to go to Lake Michigan in Michigan City for her maternity session.  I have never done a beach session before and let's just say I was NOT disappointed.  I have to say it's one of my favorite places to shoot. :-)  It was absolutely beautiful and so is mama to be!  The perfect session.

We were able to capture some really great shots yesterday but more importantly we captured some really great memories!!  Love you both!!!  Hope you enjoyed your day as much as we did.

Now on to a couple special shots I've saved for the blog....

Enjoy!

The sweetest little crocheted boots Miss L will be wearing!

Aww...

One of my favorites from the day!


I wanted to share what sweet guys we have!  We wanted to try a shot with the babies name written in the sand!!  It seemed like such an easy thing to do..lol...it proved harder than we thought.  The waves kept washing it away or the name was to big or to little.  The list goes on and on but these two kept trying to figure out a better way.  The things they do to make us happy! :)  Thanks Nathan & Troy for putting up with us yesterday!!! 
Our guys in action!
