Many more families than ever before are homeschooling this year and that’s where these homeschool photos come in. Whether it’s due to restrictions or simply by choice, parents and children alike have had to adjust. I believe that our children’s education is first and primarily our responsibility as parents. That doesn’t mean that homeschooling is […]

I fell in love with senior photography when I shot these Indiana botanical senior photos! I had never really considered it as something I would enjoy but there’s something about this life stage. It’s a season of excitement, big dreams, freedom, and hard work. “Who am I?” and “what will I become?” are questions facing […]

I had so much fun shooting this anniversary session in my hometown, Shipshewana, Indiana. Leann planned a 25th anniversary trip for her husband, Mark, complete with a ride in Blue Gate’s beautiful white open carriage. She reached out to me telling me about her vision and I absolutely loved it! Blue Gate’s carriage drivers were […]

Yes, you read that right. We’re expecting another baby in October 2021. We are absolutely thrilled as you can imagine. I’ve been snuggling Jaden a lot more as I realize the short amount of time I have with his as my first born only son. One of my greatest joys as a mom is watching […]

Joanna absolutely glowed. But it wasn’t without previous hard work and overcoming challenges. She’s faced some health challenges I can only imagine going through. There’s been some really hard days, dark days even. While I know that her journey’s not over and that choosing joy is a daily choice, I loved seeing her vibrant and […]

I had a feeling Lisa and Lester’s Coppes Commons wedding was gonna be a fun one but I didn’t expect their incredible attention to detail. From handwritten place cards for the servers to the carefully chosen jewelry Lisa wore, each piece reflected their graceful, elegant taste. Not every couple can rock the dance floor alongside […]

The lights twinkled overhead. Guests’ quiet tones were muffled by the soft music drifting across the room. The candles were lit. Close family and friends were seated on either side of the aisle. The roses and eucalyptus draping the altar had been arranged to perfection. Everything was ready. Paul stood at the altar, waiting expectantly. […]
