Lilah. I Heart You.

I’m so lucky to be the chosen Indiana Children photographer chosen to do Ms. Lilah’s mini-sessions every month. The holiday sessions are especially fun as I can be a bit of a propaholic. If I had a quarter for every time I ever thought, This is the best set-up I’ve ever done!, I’d be rich. And if Lilah got a penny for every kiss that her Grandmother stole in this session, her jar would runneth over! I heart this little girl big time. Happy Valentine’s Day, Lilah-bug.

The Faulkners. The Night Before Christmas Eve.

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and is settling into a Happy, Happy New Year! I wanted to share my quirky 2014 holiday card with everyone before we get too far in to 2015. I’m not sure if I had more fun photographing the kids, writing the ridiculous poem or designing the cards. I sealed the envelopes with black and white striped kashi tape and a red rubber stamp reading, “Dear Santa I Can Explain,” before hitting the post office the night before Christmas Eve, not a minute too soon.

I wish I could have used all of the photos… but it gets fairly expensive to send photo albums to everyone on the list!:)

The Johnstons. And Then There Was Hadley.

Meet one-month-young Hadley. The newest addition to this lovely family of five. Can you believe the head of hair this baby has? Abby and Pete said it could even be seen in the ultrasound! After photographing Ms. Hadley in her newly-decorated pink and navy nursery, Harper and Cole were excited to show us their rooms, too. We decided to photograph each child in their own special space before taking some traditional family photos on the hearth. Just when the Johnstons thought the days leading up to Christmas could not be any more magical… then there was Hadley. To my dear friend Abby, a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and ALL of yours!

The Krodels. Snow Days.

There was no better way to welcome the first snow of the season than to get my boots on and join the Krodel family for this outdoor photo session. Trouncing around with the kids, I was reminded of the excitement and novelty of snow days. Can’t you just see it on their little faces!? You’d be so excited to have a day off of school that you’d wake up before the regular buzz of the alarm and plan out the neighborhood attack- sledding, hide-and-go-seek, building snow men, shoveling, the list went on and on! With red button noses and frozen toes, you’d manage to check off a few of the to-do’s before retiring to the warmth of cartoons and hot chocolate indoors. On this day, Old Man Winter was a welcomed guest… and so was the hot chocolate that followed. Enjoy!

Botanica. “No Wallflowers Here.”

Want to get your creative juices flowing? Want to find the stuff dreams are made of? Join me as I step into the magical world behind the doors of Botanica, a custom floral design boutique located in Loveland, Ohio. Santa’s elves have nothing on this amazingly savvy and talented staff, who have been working around the clock to create a holiday wonderland for all to enjoy. If you are visiting, plan to stay for a while- it’s not only a store, it’s an experience! You won’t make it two steps forward without having to stop and explore the textured detail that occupies every nook and cranny. It’s plain to see that there are “no wallflowers here.”
