Sweet little Niko visited me in studio for his six-month milestone photos.  Big Brother just happened to be off of school and came along.  He was able to get the most amazing smiles out of little bro!  The bond these two have is so evident.  It just warmed my heart to see.  I couldn't decide which ones to share, so you get a bunch!

Juarez Party of 6 Hi, guys!  I know I am not the best at keeping up on this blog or on social media, but I couldn't help but share this beautiful session.  I was so excited for this sunset maternity session in a flower field.  *Swoon* We all met at Field to Vase U Pick Flowers in New Carlisle. The flowers were blooming, the sunlight was golden, and the sky was so colorful.  I have know Kristie my whole life and always feel honored when she asks me to photograph her family.  This session was to commemorate her fourth baby, a sweet little boy.  We got the traditional baby bump shots, couple shots and even included the kids.  The love this Momma has for her family radiates from her.  Please enjoy a few photos from our session.  Good luck Kristie and Chito and I can't wait for sweet baby boy to arrive!

Downtown Invasion We invaded downtown South Bend for Brittanie's senior session.  We had amazing lighting and weather.  The landscape and buildings offered us a perfect backdrop for such a beautiful girl.  Not only beautiful and smart, but she is also a cheerleader for John Glenn. 

This session was a blast!  Best wishes, Brittanie!  I know you will go far in life.

Meet Eryn Hi, all!  I'm sorry I've been so far behind on my blog.  I recently had a senior session with Eryn out at Beutter park.  She wasn't too keen on the idea of photos, but she quickly warmed up to it.  I had a great time and hope you enjoy a few photos from her session. :)

Introducing Miss Rozlyn Rae... I have known this sweet angel's mommy her entire life.  I have been so honored to capture many important moments for their family, including this one.  She was absolutely perfect for her session and allowed us to get so many images.  Here are few of my favorites.

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to! Little Miss Mila came to see me for her One Year Portraits.  She was all smiles, until I picked up my camera!  Mommy was able to make her smile for a few.  She wasn't quite feeling it, though.  Once we brought out the cake, it was all over.  Just like her big brother, she wanted nothing to do with the cake.  Mommy had to sit with her to coax her to try it.  Once she tasted it, she enjoyed herself.  I hope you have a great 1st Birthday, Mila <3

Cameron {Northwood High School Senior} I've known Cameron's mom for most of my life.  I was honored when she contacted me to capture his Senior portraits.  We met up at Beutter Park and had a session full of laughs.  As most boys dislike the idea of a portrait session, I'd say we captured quite a few to show his personality.  I've included a few of my favorites for you all to enjoy!

Ayden {6 Months} Meet Ayden...  I met him and his parents at St. Patrick's Park to capture his 6 month portraits.  He gave me quite a few smiles, but all that looking cute really wore him out.  We grabbed a few family portraits, as well, before the hot, humid weather set in.  It was a pleasure to meet this cute family and I look forward to seeing you guys again <3

It's fun to be 2!  I've been photographing Xavier since he was in his Mommy's tummy!  It's always a pleasure to see him and his family and I love being able to watch him grow.  For his two-year-old session, we had a little fun playing in the park.  He had his mind made up about where he was willing to explore, but especially loved to watch the older kids playing basketball.  I hope you enjoy a few portraits from his session...
