Five Mistakes I Made While Making My Wall Gallery

  Ok, here’s the deal with this post. It is NOT a tutorial on how to make a perfect wall gallery. (There are already dozens of posts on that topic.) This is my very honest accounting of all the mistakes I made in my own wall gallery.  I’m sharing it for two reasons: 1.) I […]

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.

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.

At seven days old, she was already so alert and interested in her surroundings. I love the photos of her quietly […]
