2013 Announcement

I have been thinking a lot about my photography business these past several months. I have been trying to make a decision regarding 2013 and how I will be doing business in the new year. It has been a hard decision, but seeing that I still feel strongly about my decision now as I did several months ago, I know I am making the right decision for my family and myself.

Here goes nothing...

Starting in 2013 I will not be taking clients as I will be taking a break from my photography business.

Phew. I said it. I have been wanting to change my mind for quite awhile, but I know this is the right thing for me right now. As sad as this decision makes me, I know I need it. Right now I have a very young family that needs me... and I need them. I feel strongly that this break from photography will give me the chance to give my children the attention that they need. I look forward to the day that I can start my photography business again.

I want to tell you (my wonderful clients from these past THREE years!) how much I appreciate you all! Taking photos of your sweet families has been a great experience. I have loved getting to know each one of you. Photography has been a wonderful outlet for me. I have grown so much from learning this art by capturing moments of your life. Thank you for trusting me and allowing me to be your photographer!

The last thing I want to do is leave you stranded without a photographer. If you would like a recommendation for a new photographer in the area please contact me and let me know! I would love to refer you to a new photographer.

Also, please feel free to stop by this blog and say hi! I will continue taking photos of my little kiddos and I plan to post here frequently. I may not be in business, but I am still a photographer :) I also have a lot of practicing and learning to do during this break that I'm taking.

Thank you all again and again!

P.S. I have to post a picture... or a few bunch! Here's to all my amazing 2012 clients :) Thank you so much for everything!!

Scout 9 months

I have to admit, when I took photos for Leslie back in January I couldn't help but think how beautiful their place would be in the fall. This was a session I was definitely looking forward to! It was beautiful with all of the fallen leaves. It's so neat to see how much Scout has grown each time I see her. She is 9 months old now...

We had to work hard for these smiles :) Scout knew what we wanted and she made us work for it!

And of course, here is Scout when she was a newborn, 3 month old and 6 month old... can't wait for 1 year photos!

Brandon, Kim and Gavin

Going on year 4 taking photos of this awesome family. I really look forward to this each fall! Meet Kim, Brandon and Gavin. Kim is a fabulous photographer, be sure to check out her site. She has done so many amazing sessions this year :) Also be sure to check out some of the past sessions I had with these guys... SO fun! 

I am really excited about all the fun expressions Gavin gave me. This is such a fun age, gotta love photographing toddlers...

Tickling this little guy sure got us some cute smiles :)

Absolute favorite right here...

Ok... three more favorites as well...

Ricky, Melissa, Dylan, Lauren and Ethan

This was such a beautiful day! The last warm day that we had this fall... I am so glad we took advantage of it and got out there and did this shoot. Such perfect timing! These cute kiddos were rock stars and they loved being in front of the camera. This made my job sooo easy and fun! I had a great time and really enjoyed editing these photos. 

I've known this family for four years now and they are good friends of my family. It's been two years since I've done their photos... and the kids have sure grown up since then! 

Melissa and Ricky both went to Purdue so we decided they needed some photos on campus. This is a favorite location of mine. This time we found some new spots for pictures and I loved how they turned out...

Dylan's smile... love it :)

This is a new favorite spot of mine. And these boys... love the photos we got of them together!
