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.
