Christy + Blake + Baby Bump

It’s funny how photography works. One summer will be filled with ALL of the family sessions, one summer will be filled with seniors the next something different! I was talking with a friend lately about how there must be something in the water because I’ve photographed ALL of the baby bumps lately. And they’ve been so beautiful.

Christy and Blake suggested water for their session and I loved the idea. Little did I know we would have THE perfect day for such a session. Christy was a trooper because this little hidden gem of a place is behind some baseball fields, which apparently were holding tournaments during our slotted session time. She made baring her bump with a possible crowd looking on look effortless and magical.

You both are going to be incredible parents and I’m so excited for you to bring life into this world!

sidenote: her Becky shirt is on point and I think everyone who is pregnant should have one!

Hedge Family

I’ve known this family since high school and it’s been amazing to see them grow. Every session Hadley reassures me that I am funny and that’s just a bonus! It amazes me how quickly they grow and I’m DYING for Holly to make her debut. Peep their session below!

Adana + Tyler: Maternity

One AWESOME thing about being a photographer is that sometimes you get to photograph friends from the past! Adana and Tyler both went to high school with me and were that couple that dated through Jr. High School and High School.  They won every prom queen and king award and were destined to be together forever! Thus, making my job easier.  I’ve said it before and they have proven yet again that married couples are some of the BEST people to photograph.  They needed little to no direction, which leaves more time for joking and laughter.  And that we did.  My cheeks literally were sore from smiling and laughing the entire time.  They made the experience so much fun because they were so easy-going.  It was fun to catch up on life, including learning the due date for Adana and Tyler’s  little one to be! I suspect Hadley will be one lucky little girl to be brought up by as fun of a couple as Adana and Tyler!


Adana:  After learning you are an English teacher now, you are not allowed to judge my grammar and spelling or use this as a bad example in your class! 🙂

Dachshunds to Baby Bump!

This couple may not realize it, but they are very special to me when it comes to the start of my photography career.  Connected through my older sister, Bri, I first photographed Steph and Kyle and their two dachshunds.  They were one of my first clients and gave me the confidence to keep at it.  Last weekend, I got the pleasure of photographing Steph and Kyle and her growing bump! A beautiful and natural couple that need no direction when in front of the camera made for an easy session.  Laughing the entire time, made for such an enjoyable experience. Oh and did I mention I got to learn the name of the baby, Carter, before they revealed it at the baby shower the next day? I am truly lucky to work with such great people.

Whats up baby!

I was totally stoked to hear that my long time high school friend Sam and her fiance, Brian, were having a baby!  Even more stoked when they asked me to do their maternity photos.  I can not even begin to describe how much of a trooper Sam was.  We trekked the entire downtown of West Lafayette just to find these most awesome places to use as backdrops.  She, 8 months pregnant, WALKED the entire way and thought nothing about it.  We visited places they used to spend time at on dates, for fun, for leisure.  All in all it was a great time.  I can not wait to take photos of baby Ellee, whenever she decides to come out and play!
