I photographed Natalie and her kiddos on possibly THE gloomiest day of the year here in good old Indiana. It was seriously ice-storming out, but that didn’t stop us from having the best time inside. As a film photographer that loves bright, natural light…I was a bit nervous knowing mother nature wasn’t helping me. I live only a few blocks from Natalie, and my own home was SO DARK, so I knew it would be a little challenging. When I arrived at the session, her kids welcomed me with open arms, shared their favorite things with me and reassured me that sometimes, if you just go-with-the-flow, you end up with one of your favorite sessions ever. 

Lifestyle sessions will *always* have my heart. Check out some of my favorites of Natalie and her kids below!

I absolutely adore Northwestern Senior Kelsey! She is one of the sweetest souls *ever*…and obviously insanely beautiful/easy to photograph. Check out some of my favorites of her session below! Also, because of my wedding/family schedule (and a new baby arriving..yay!) senior sessions are very limited for 2017. There are 4 session dates left!

I had the BEST time hanging out with these twin sisters and their mom recently. They had just shared a birthday and were about to head off to kindergarten, so Kristi wanted a session of the three of them doing things they loved to do together…playing in their room, read together, have a dance party, and bake cookies. How awesome?!

If I could only photograph sessions like this forever it would be a dream come true; theres nothing better than the *real.*
