Zionsville family photographer

The Kirkpatrick Family | Coxhall Gardens Family Session | Carmel Family Photographer

Sometimes it’s funny to me how the first time I meet many of my clients is the day I photograph them. It’s pretty standard in the industry and I guess it takes a certain type of person to drum up conversation with all types of people (the little humans and the adult humans) to help the session go well. I have to win clients over and make them smile, and be playful, and have fun in a short period of time. Something like this would completely stress me out several years ago but now, it’s all part of this gig. My planning helps. I get to know my clients by sending a questionnaire where they share their kids’ interests and their hopes and dreams for the session. This planning portion has been so key in helping me create a vision for a session before it even happens.

I met the Kirkpatrick family for the first time on a PERFECT evening in May. It not only was a perfect evening but they were the perfect family. We played, swung the kids around, tickled, adored the baby bump on mom (baby #4!!), and most importantly, had fun. The vision I had for a playful, candid session came to life. Amazing clients make amazing pics….

Perfect Morn | The Brown Family | Zionsville Family Photographer

I was worried when I woke up on an October morning and it was SUPER foggy. I had a session scheduled and was unsure how that fog was going to impact my location. It was abnormally warm and crazy enough mosquitoes were sticking around too with the damp, warm conditions. Were the fog, mosquitoes and humidity going to ruin this session?? And the answer to that: NO! The fog created a magical ambiance. The Brown’s came dressed for success and Kensley was the cutest 10 month old model I could have asked for. Thanks to the Brown family for trusting me with your memories.

The Roberts Crew | Indianapolis Family Photographer

I first photographed the Roberts family back in the fall of 2016 when their twin girls were 3 months old. And Thea was 18 months, Jase was 3 and Hailey was 9. Yes - one busy household. Fast forward a couple years and they definitely haven’t slowed down - and everyone has grown so much! This family session was fast-paced and fun. I think my favorite part was when I asked Jacob (with a little sarcasm) how it is having two 2-year olds in the house and said without hesitation (and without sarcasm) “Awesome.” The Roberts embrace their chaos because we all know how fleeting time is when your children are young. Savor it.

Daddy's Girl | The Skarbek Family | Zionsville Family Photographer

First, I hope Alyssa (mom) isn't mad at me for my title.  Two month old Addison would NOT take her eyes off of daddy during our session.  She would stare and stare at him, give him some googly eyes, smile at him and so on.  And the affection was not a one way street.  Ian (daddy) was more than smitten with his little girl.  Can we say wrapped around his finger already? 

This session instantly became one of my favs.  Downtown Zionsville is so peaceful in the morning.  We met early and the sun was rising, creating a beautiful light, and the happiness of this new family of three was radiating.  I wish I could have a session like this every morning to start my day.  Perfection. 

So I know we discussed Addison's affection for daddy above, but she definitely loves her mommy too.  We got some sweet shots of mom and daughter that I hope they will treasure forever. 

Thanks so much to the Skarbek's for trusting me with their memories.  Don't blink, because Addison will be running around before you know it.  (:
