The Blog

We were friends the instant we met. We both love Penn Station Subs (they’re not even paying me for this plug), the texture of meat is important to both of us, we think random things are funny, grease and chocolate are an epic combination in our minds, and the list goes on and on. She’s one of those people that I could talk and text with all day long, which I constantly have the giggles when doing so. There’s no superficial anything with her. I can be totally me and she appreciates it. I consider myself very lucky to have met such an amazing person. I also learned during her shoot that she is trying to publish a book of poems that she’s written, she wants to be a wedding photographer, and she hand makes the MOST adorable cards! So, without further ‘ado, meet Maddie, a super awesome high school senior & my new best friend!

Sometimes kids get sick on the morning of the families photo shoot…while I’m doing travel sessions. Total bummer, but then the stars aligned and we were able to meet north of Bloomington, IN for this adorable family’s session! My heart will always swell when I get to watch families love each other, treat one another with respect, have fun, laugh, sometimes cry, and play together. Families have a special dynamic and it’s always my pleasure to capture it all!

It was cold this day. This family sucked it up and had fun anyway. They huddled in warm buildings when needed and took turns coming out to join me. I’ll tell you something about me, when I’m photographing I take on some superhero strengths I don’t otherwise have. I don’t notice if it’s hot or cold, if I’m hungry or thirsty, if my feet are blistering or my back is giving me grief. I am in my element and happy place with a camera in my hands. All I notice is the joy and love on the other side of the lens…and the light. I’d be lying if I didn’t mention the light. I see the effort it has taken to get everyone to the shoot, the time it’s taken to make the outfits just right, the fresh hair cuts, the little details with jewelry and darling shoes. And even more than that, I see love, laughter, sibling rivalries and bonds, tender ways parents interact with their kids, the dynamics of how a family is run, inside jokes that make them laugh, and different stages in life from young child to teens. I see it all and I capture it all. I’m grateful every time a family lets me in their circle for a moment to really be with them. The whole process makes my heart sing. I now share with you the ‘M’ family in the lovely downtown where the sun popped out for a moment to join us and the wind graced us with it’s presence off and on.
