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.*

I shot Brandon and Alex’s family photos about a year ago, and I immediately fell in love with them and their two girls. They are so kind and laid back (every photographer’s dream) and after spending their wedding day among friends and family I have to say the same for everyone I encountered.

I wasn’t sure what to expect before arriving at Willowfield Lavender Farm as I’d never been there before, but when I pulled up it was a wedding day dream! Hands-down one of my favorite Indiana venues to date, and the couple that owned it are the sweetest *ever*. The weather was a bit crazy with storms, rain and even sunshine, but the day couldn’t have been more perfect.

I was completely flattered when Sarah of SarahBeth Photography asked me to come to her home for a lifestyle session before her family moved into a new house. It meant so much to be able to document something for a family that I honestly wish I had to remember my first home by.

I had such an amazing time with Sarah and her kiddos! She’s obviously an amazing photographer and business woman, but the kind of mom she is trumps everything, and her kids adore her just as much as she does them. This was such a nice, refreshing session for me, and I wish the Hills nothing but the best on their new adventure!

I can’t put into words how perfect Joe and Mollie’s wedding day was. As their photographer, I can easily say they are dream clients, and it was a dream day! They are two of the most beautiful souls I’ve ever come across in my entire life, and I don’t say things like that lightly! Their love for each other and God is one of a kind, and I feel so crazy blessed to have been here.
