michelle is 36 weeks pregnant

Michelle is such a good friend of ours that I often forget she was a wedding client before we ever got to know her! Michelle and Travis got married before our blogging days and we are just thrilled to announce they are adding a little baby boy to their family in just a few short weeks! People often ask me how we get so lucky to have such beautiful pregnant clients for photos, and I honestly have no idea. But we do! Michelle is no exception, being stunningly beautiful and perfectly shaped! :) We've gotten to know her over the last few years and she and her husband are both some of the most fun, welcoming, funny people and we love them! They are also some of the most organized people we know (we are secretly jealous) & I'm anxious to learn from her how to keep all of the toys, books, clothes, and baby stuff from over-ruling your house! (If anyone can do it, they can!) Baby Clark will be so lucky to be welcomed into this loving household! We CAN'T WAIT to meet him!!!!!!!!!!! Congrats, Michelle and Travis!

bridger is 2 weeks old

Say hello to Bridger. This little guy is just two weeks old and already has the thickest head of hair I've seen! His parents were winners of one of our gift certificates recently and I'm so glad they were! He's such a cute baby and I'm excited to watch him grow! Here are a few images from the session...

luke is 1 year old

Happy birthday to our latest Grow Baby Grow graduate! Little Luke is 1! I can't believe it! He's gotten so big and developed such a great little personality! I've photographed him 3 times now and I don't think I've seen him get upset yet. I'm not sure how his parents do it but I think they should start teaching classes!

Here are a few images from the session...

mathew family

Liza's sister came in from Australia and her mom came in from Malaysia last week to meet little Ezra. They were so sweet towards their new tiny family member as you can see in the image above! That little guy is going to be spoiled by his aunt and grandmother! Here are a few images from the session...

yasmeen is six months old

Tasha and Safi were one of our FAVORITE wedding couples EVER & we seem to have a theme of traveling to see each other!! We felt like instant long-time friends as soon as we met in 2006. We actually met Tasha in Arizona for her initial wedding meeting (we were going anyway and she was going to medical school there). Then we traveled to South Bend for their wedding....and they drove all the way from Toledo to visit us and have their beautiful daughter, Yasmeen's photos taken!!! We're still working on getting them to MOVE to Indy.....we just love them and wish we could see them often. This family is not only adorable on the outside, but they are truly special and beautiful people inside too! Tasha, Safi, and perfect little Yasmeen, thank you so very much for making the long drive to see us!!!! Enjoy your sneak peek!!!!

tom, erin, and avery

Before our blogging days we photographed Tom and Erin's wedding and instantly fell in love with this couple! We were SO excited to get the news that Erin and Tom were expecting a little one of their own (see maternity HERE)!!! Avery joined the world a little over a month early - healthy as can be as tiny as he is! We are very excited to watch him grow up. He is very blessed to have such caring, wonderful, loving parents and we are so happy for this family of three! Congratulations, Tom, Erin, and Avery!
