an orchard motherhood session
Much like summer fading into autumn, this season of life is all about change--a shift in who we used to be as a woman, now a doting mama.
2018 was an incredible year filled with so many wonderful families, and this late autumn film newborn session was one of my absolute favorites! Sarah is a wonderfully talented film photographer herself, so I was honored to be asked to help document this season of life for her sweet family. As the October sun filtered […]
When Lindsay reached out to me to do a film session for her sweet family, I was immediately excited. It is always humbling to be approached by another incredible photographer for their family photos! Because life is always a bit hectic, our summer session turned into an early autumn session (okay, it was still 90 […]
Jessica and I used to work together in Greenwood before she left to welcome her second sweet daughter, and I headed up to Indianapolis to manage another office. I was both honored and excited when she reached out to schedule a motherhood session with her girls! We met at Newfields and had so much fun […]

Ashley and Joe welcomed their sweet baby Maxwell Thomas in December, and several weeks later I had the absolute honor of spending the morning with them in their home in Indianapolis to photograph them in the first phase of parenthood. I remember it well–the beginning is a blur, time that moves both too swiftly and […]
There truly is something to be said about film photography. The inexplicable way that film captures movement and colors is what drew me in to photography to begin with. Often times when I tell people that I shoot film, they assume that I mean video. After all, film is what our parents used and what […]
