Paleo Green Smoothie with Just Three Ingredients

  If you’ve known me for awhile, you know I am generally trying to eat paleo (fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and free range/grass fed eggs, fish, and meat). If you’ve ever tried eating paleo, you know that one of the hardest things about it is buying, preparing, and storing all of that food! Since having […]

Engagement Session at Irwin Gardens in Columbus Indiana

    I’m finally ready to share the last post from this lovely spring engagement session. After our stop at the vine covered trellises (in my previous post), we drove to First Christian Church, where Quentin and Hayli will be married in August. The building, constructed in 1942, was one of the first churches in […]

Spring Pear Blossom Engagement Session in Central Indiana

Welcome back for the second installment of Quentin and Hayli’s engagement session in Columbus, Indiana! As you know, I’m pretty smitten with these two, and I have a tendency to go on and on about them. I’ll try to keep it short today and just say how much I love their sense of adventure in […]

Ice Cream Parlor Engagement Session in Columbus, Indiana

  I don’t know many people who would start off a photo shoot by eating an entire waffle cone, but that’s exactly what Hayli and Quentin did. These two have a very playful, laid-back vibe, and they wanted their photos to capture that light-hearted spirit. As a native of Columbus, Hayli wanted to visit some […]

A Very Special Family Lifestyle Session

This blog post has been a year in the making, and I’m still not sure I can do it justice.  This will be one of my more personal posts, and I’ll be talking about pregnancy, adoption, miscarriage, and special needs kids, so if that’s something that might be hard for you to read right now, please give yourself grace to move on.

Fall Engagement Session: Chelsea & Aaron

I had a great time getting to know Chelsea and Aaron. I’ll be photographing their wedding in September 2018 at Meadowlark Gardens, but I hadn’t actually met them yet! They started researching photographers after I’d already moved to Indiana, but they still reached out, and I could tell right away that they were my kind of couple.

Lifestyle Family Session in Westfield, Indiana

For these family portraits, we knew we wanted to go with a lifestyle approach and capture the magical feeling of Laura’s house at Christmas time. It’s always been a special holiday for her, but it became something more precious when sweet Teddy arrived two years ago in December. His name, Theodore, means “gift from God” and his middle name, Noel, means “Christmas”, and I think his birthday is going to be the best Christmas gift his family gets to have every year.

I love sharing about the people and things I enjoy, so I thought I’d put together a post about some of the amazing people I’ve met so far. I know there are other wedding photographers in Indiana who are talented and sought-after, but these are the ones I’ve actually met.

Rustic Barn Wedding with Sweet Rescue Pups

The rustic setting was also a perfect fit for including the couple’s four rescued dogs, Ruby, Wyatt, Billy, and George. The dogs, sporting their own wedding attire and monogrammed leashes, were walked down the aisle by the children of friends and family.
