May Family | One Year Old Photography | West Lafayette, IN


A nice moment from Kherington’s shoot came at the very end. Kherington was getting fussy and slightly “over it” until she reached for a book. It is an activity the family does together often and so we photographed it. It was not my idea or the parent’s idea. It was Kherington’s idea. Despite the fact that we have a lovely studio to work in downtown, lately I have been encouraging my clients to do portraits of young chil...

This was my first wedding at the Mavris in Indianapolis and it lived up to all the great things I had heard. The staff were the some of the best I hav...

Hannah & Chris | West Lafayette, IN | Wedding Photography


UPDATE: Hannah and Chris’ personalized website is now online. For now there is a slideshow, in just a few days I’ll post the Signature Edition Print, then their album design and finally the full set of proofs. We are now just a week or two away from seeing it all, so stay tuned!

Hannah and Chris’ day was one of love and faith. The sentiments and emotions shared between these two people and their families are ones of lasting faith and a deep passion for serving others. The trappings of a normal wedding day were definitely secondary to honoring and celebrating their commitment to God and to one another.

As far as photography goes, it was quite a relief that such a large bridal party could be so attentive and responsive. As it was naturally very cold on January 1st in northern Indiana, we spent a total of probably 20 minutes outside all day, yet were able to capture more t...

This was such a fun family shoot! Brian came in with his two gorgeous girls, Sydney and Makenzie, and their adorable (and cooperative!) dog, Bosley.  We did some family formals at first and then I let the girls just do their thing! Catching kids in action has always been my favorite. Enjoy!
