Frolicking into mentor sessions like…

I always love meeting people that jump full force into their dreams. They have that no fear attitude and are ready to go full force into something they really feel pulled to do. Meet Natasha. She owns Natasha Renae Photography. She’s an artist and such an incredible human being. She reached out a month or so ago about one of the mentor sessions I offer. She traveled to me from the Indianapolis/Avon area and freaking killed her mentor session. We got the opportunity to work with two sets of couples and it was serious magic.

My favorite thing after these sessions are seeing the photos from the night that each mentee has done. I woke up this morning tagged in her previews and you guys. Holy whoa! I’ve tagged her social media handles below so you can go check them out and show her all the love!

I’m an open book during these sessions and love connecting with each and every person I get to experience these sessions with. I love being a part of their journey as they continue being bad asses. I love that we become a small community, friends and collaborators. I love seeing people freaking go for it. Peak my previews below and make sure to visit Natasha on her social pages!

“I have a history of not asking for help and feel like I should “figure it out” on my own – why? Beats me. Abbey 100% took me under her wing and shared all the knowledge and truth bombs (like I should NOT do this alone 😂) and I am forever changed.”

Sammi // 2019 //NMHS Senior

You guys, seniors this year have been killing it! They make me want a redo senior year as far as style goes that’s for sure. Sammi was freaking fire as we wondered the urban streets our small town has to offer. We couldn’t have asked for a better day to shoot and she even brought her son, Koda, along whom also had epic style. Peep her session below!

Charmion: boho

Y’all ain’t ready for this bohemian queen. Charmion contacted me with the idea of photographing her in an outfit she recently ordered. I’ll be honest, I was like mmkay yeah sure I’ll do it, but not really knowing what I got myself into. Then I met her. She’s beautiful and such an awesome person. Also the way she moves in front of the camera. Lord help me. See for yourself below.

Mr. and Mrs. Taylor

Get you a bride that is also an event planner (C. Taylor Events). Why? Because she will send you a shot list for her wedding and you wont have to touch it. She will make you an actual spread sheet. And laminate it. And you will want to thank her a million times over! Chelsea and Ethan were the dream team when it came to photographing a bride and groom. Their wedding was beautifully done and filled with those little moments that every photographer weeps over when editing. Check it out for yourself. Their love is goals.

Also, shoutout to the groomsmen with the solo dance? moves. haha!

Twinning

Cait and her family are goals. Seriously, though. Through the chaos of having four children, at one point all under the age of four, they seriously make it look like a breeze.

I had been DYING to visit Cait since she relocated from Indy to Cincinnati and had these little sugars. Some may know that Cait and I shoot quite a bit together and she’s kind of become my life coach in a sense. It’s like she somehow knows when I need some encouragement or someone to just work things out with. Through having babies and being in different cities, she never fails at being a consistent friend and someone I cherish and value so much in my life.

Below are a few favorites from their in home lifestyle session with their new additions, Hayes and Ephraim // 1 month old.

P.s. Hire me and let me shoot your family chaos in your homes. Things seriously become magical.

Wilson Family

I feel like I should, yet again, introduce myself. It’s been a minute, but you guys a lot has happened since my last blog post! For one thing, I moved back home from DC and into a photo studio in downtown Crawfordsville IN. Follow me on Instagram (@abbeyelainephotography) for weekly studio vibes to see what’s happening inside.

I need to give a shout out to the families who have been in it to win it with me since the beginning. This family being one. I can’t even explain how beautiful their family is. You’ll just have to see for yourselves below. A lot has changed in their family as well including a  new little sugar. I love growing with my families and photographing their realness, hashtag blessed. For the past couple years I’ve made the trip to IL and they never disappoint. Also they have the best baby names, Camp, Cooper and the newest little girl Charlie. Goals. All of them.

Taylor: Senior 2017

Taylor, a 2017 senior killing the senior portrait game. She was incredible to work with. So fun and had a perfect go with the flow attitude. I’m not sure if I love senior sessions most because they make me feel young again, my ten-year reunion is this year WHAT. THE. WHAT?! Or if it’s because of the creativity that comes out of each session. Also, can we just give a little shout out to all of the makeup YouTube tutorials? The gals I’ve shot lately, their makeup, on fleek. Really though. Peek Taylor’s session below! She’s gorgeous.

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!

Grubbs Family

So here’s the thing, I really enjoy family sessions. I’m pretty confident I’m a child whisperer and you will be shocked to see how many smiles we will capture of your children during a session. Now that that little fact is out of the way *insert winkey face emoji*, I give you the Grubbs family. They. Are. Perfect. None of my child laughter skills came into play here because they literally just do it. It’s actually really incredible to watch Ella and Jacob together. Being a sister and or brother is hard work. I know, I have two of each but these two and their bond is so so good. AND so natural. They play, make each other laugh and even give the occasional kiss on the hand when I tell them too. Their sessions are always magical. Take a look!

Mr. and Mrs. Richmond!

Remember that time I blogged a wedding? Hey, yeah me neither BUT today is the day y’all! I’m just about wrapped up with Ashley and Michael’s wedding and it deserves to be shared worldwide. You guys, it was simply whimsical, magical, gorgeous all of the above good things. Her dress was custom designed by her friend/designer (he’s seriously going places, don’t forget me!) and it was flawless. His bow tie was snail print. I mean, c’mon need I say more? Check out their day below!
