My B/F/F and her adorable family =) | Indianapolis Children's Photographer

This is my b/f/f Carol and her adorable family. I know I have talked about Carol on here before but just in case you missed out . . . . Carol and I have been friends for 20+ years. We went to middle school, high school, and college together and then roomed together after college. She is the type of friend that you know you can count on day or night. I know because I have called her at 3am and she has come to my house to cry with me when I was going through a hard time. If I need advice I go to her. If I want to have a fun girls night out I call her. If I want to laugh so hard I cry I go visit her. I always assumed that everyone had a friend like this. I have realized over the years that we are truly blessed to have this one of a kind friendship. She is like a sister to me. My kids love her and they love playing with her kids. Our kids are the same ages (although she went and had a third baby without me - lol ) She cares about the world around her and strives to make it a better place. I can't leave her husband, Doug, out of this either. He just got back from India where he personally helped install a water purification system at an orphanage that desperately needed it. He didn't just send the money to get it done, He actually flew across the world to make sure it was done!!! As you can see I am crazy about this family. Always have been, always will be =) Enjoy their pictures!!

Miss Julia | Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

I have had so many newborns over the past month!! I know they are only a few weeks old when I photograph them but they already have their own unique personalities. This little cutie was wide awake the entire session. She was so curious and very alert. She seemed to be looking straight at my camera like she knew exactly what she was supposed to do =) Julia didn't realize that we were actually trying to get her to go to sleep - lol!! As you can see she finally gave up and decided to take a small nap =) She is the first girl in her family and has a house full of brothers to take care of her =) I will be taking their family pictures later in the year and I can't wait to see how much she has grown in that amount of time. Enjoy her pictures =)

Koschnick Family | Indianapolis Children's Photographer

This is the Koschnick family. I met Emily, the mom, at a Matilda Jane trunk show a few years ago. I love Matilda Jane clothes (as you will see in many of my photos!). We did a photo shoot with her kiddos and mine of the new line a few years ago and we have been friends ever since. One of the photos I took of her little girl, Lizzy, won first place at the fair this year. I always tease her and tell her that she made me famous =) Emily is a great mom, a wonderful friend, and a beautiful person inside and out. I am so glad that our paths crossed. It has been great getting to know her family and watching her kids grow. I plan to host a Matilda Jane trunk show in March. If you have a session with me this year I would recommend coming to the show. MJ clothes photograph so beautifully. Enjoy the pics =) Don't you just love the lollipop pics!?! So cute!!

Kohn Family | Indianapolis Children's Photographer

I met Kristin over a year ago when I walked into her new store on Mass Ave. I loved the store from the moment I walked in!!! The clothes are adorable and I loved how she had everything set up. We started talking and she asked if I would be interested in doing a promotion in the store for the Fall Art Gallery Walk. It was so much fun working with Kristin and the girls at Nurture this year. The event turned out great (Sessions sold out) and I had the opportunity to meet some wonderful kids/families in the process. I was so happy to have the opportunity to photograph Kristin and her family during my holiday sessions. Her little boy has the most gorgeous green eyes and jet black hair. He looks Hollywood doesn't he!?! He could be on the cover of a modern kids magazine. Her little girl had my heart at the first sound of her precious giggle. They have the sweetest family and two of the most gorgeous kiddos in town =) I look forward to working with Kristin again this year. Happy New Year!!!!
***Nurture sells modern apparel and gear for babies, toddlers, and kids. The store is located at 433 Massachusetts Avenue in Indianapolis. Check it out!!!

This is the Edens family. Can you believe how gorgeous each of their kiddos are!!! Little Miss L. has the most beautiful curly hair and Mr. E has the biggest brown eyes!! Miss N. is just plain sweet and has the cutest little smile. I love this family!!! Leslie is one of my best friends=) We have had so much over the past few years. I have really enjoyed getting to know her and her family =) We go to the same church so we get to see each other at least every week (ok I have missed a few weeks here and there - lol). I love how these pictures turned out!! I hope you do too =) Have a great week!!

Miss Mira | Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

I have know Mira's mommy since she was born =) She was friends with my sister, Lindsay, growing up. Our parent's have been friends for a very long time. It was great to meet Mira for the first time and re-connect with this beautiful family. Mira was a perfect angel for her photo shoot. She did everything I told her to do =) Mainly sleep and look cute - which was not a problem for her =) I know that Mira was an answered prayer for this family so I felt honored to take her very first photos. Merry Christmas!!!
