Some People Just Aren't Cut Out To Be Pumpkins

Apparently Reagan is one of them.

My Birthday Girl!

I know it's been two whole weeks since Reagan's birthday party, but I've been insanely busy and am just now getting around to putting up a few birthday pictures. So sue me.

"Hey, I thought you said there was going to be cake!"

"What? Is there something on my face?"

You know that song that goes, "It's my party and I'll cry if I want to, cry if I want to, cry if I want to...." Yeah, you know the one. Well, I'm pretty sure that song MUST have been written about somebody's 1st birthday because, really, what birthday party for a 1-yr old have you been where the baby didn't cry?

Happy birthday, baby girl! I love you!

James Family | Indianapolis Family Photographer

I'm going to call this photo session my first "favor shoot". As I mentioned yesterday in the preview, Betsy Walker is the uber-talented song artist whose music plays on my website (when it's not under construction). In exchange for music usage, she asked if I would do a mini family shoot for her, her hubby, and their pooch. I happily agreed. (What can I say? I love her music! And um, they're a pretty cute family.)

This photo shoot was extra fun because I've never before had a shoot with any animals. The puppy was an awful lot to keep up with (can you believe this little guy was actually MORE active than my kiddos??), but I think we got some decent photos with Dude looking at the camera. Aaand some with him NOT looking at the camera. :)

Ben, I have to hand it to you. For not liking the camera all that much, you did a great job!

Dude, you were the best puppy I've ever photographed! (See paragraph #2.)

And Betsy...you look beautiful, as always!

If any of you missed the preview (or for some reason failed to follow my explicit instructions), you MUST go to Betsy's site and listen to her music. Do it now. Seriously, stop reading this and go listen. This post will still be here when you get back.

Oh good, you're back! Alright, now you may look at the pictures. :)











My personal favorite from the evening....


Now, in case you're thinking, "Hmm, I wonder if I could do her some sort of favor and she would take my pictures for free," let me just say....BRING IT ON. I love favors and I love free. So try me!

Thanks again, Ben and Betsy! It was fun! Make sure you send me a Christmas card! :)

Reagan is 1 year old!

Yes, her birthday was last Sunday. BUT she was sick all day and I didn't take many pictures. Tonight we were at a friend's house for dinner and I grabbed a few of her so I could at least pretend to say I took some 12-month photos. :)

You might notice these are a tad blurry. That's what happens when it's 8pm, the sun is going down, and you're too lazy to get out your flash.....

James Family Preview

Tonight I had the privilege of doing a family photo shoot for Ben and Betsy James (aka Betsy Walker) and their adorable pup, Dude. If you had a chance to visit my website before I decided that it need to be redone, you probably heard some of Betsy's music. She is a super talented music artist and if you haven't heard her, you need to go check out her site right now!

Ok, all that blabbing just to give you a preview? Ridiculous, I know! I'll cut to the chase....


Aren't they adorable? More pictures coming soon...

How Could I Forget??

These two were my favorite images from Sunday's maternity shoot and somehow I completely set them aside. Anyway, I just had to post them because I love them!

A blippit....

We went to the park this morning with some friends. I have taken pictures of Makenna before, but today she was just exceptionally cute. I have to post this one image because it's so darn adorable.


P.S. Gretchen - I pick this for the 1-yr photo.

Angel | Indianapolis Maternity Photographer

Gorgeous Weather + Gorgeous Location + Gorgeous Couple =

The. Perfect. Session.

Hope you enjoy!


These two were supremely good at not paying attention to the camera - which is
exactly what I wanted!





Did I mentioned that I was SUPER stoked to find weeping willow trees here?!


AJ actually wore these shoes when he was a baby!
Can I hear some applause for an organized mom?



They are naming their baby boy Ari. I think it's adorable!




This one is just for you, AJ! ;)



AJ and Angel, I had a great time with you! I can't wait to meet your little one when he arrives!

Texture - Yay or Nay?

I have been experimenting with textures in my free time (Ha! Free time!) and came up with this image from my last wedding. I'm undecided on how I feel about the texture. So it's up for discussion. What do you think?

Reagan: I Can't Get Enough of Her

I've been digging through archives for a project over the past few days and came across this image of Reagan from July. As much as I wanted her to crawl around, now I kind of miss the sit-and-stare stage.

Sienna: Sweet Little Girl

For months now I've been in awe of those photographers who flawlessly produce beautiful high key images. I tried it once or twice a while back (when I was significantly less learned than I am now) and got...well....terrible results. So I set that idea to the backburner for a while and moved on. But recently I've had the desire again to produce an image with high-keyness. So here's my attempt....
