Annie | High School Senior | Benton Central

Annie was a joy to work with, can you tell that she likes animals? I had to tell her “This is as close as I’m coming to that” a couple of times, though (in the case of a snake and an alligator). All good fun!

Taylor & Maria | Lacuna Artist Lofts | Chicago Weddings

dfwed-early-faves-055V2

I was shocked when Maria told me that her and Taylor had never discussed the possibility of rain on their wedding day. In Chicago. In September. LOL. But rain it did, and you would have never guessed that Taylor and Maria had planned things any other way. I still cannot believe how much this couple remained in high spirits, despite having to change 3/4 of their plans at the last minute.

Becky and Larry | Wea Creek Orchard | Lafayette, IN

BLwed-1

Anyone who follows this blog will recognize Becky. She began shooting with us this year and it is a true pleasure to work with her. What you may not know is that I have known Becky since high school. We both were dark room rats in those good old film days and had many conversations over red light and developer fumes.

My favorite Becky story from back then is from when I was having a really hard time (it was high school all). After giving me some advice on life she asks if I want to “hug it out”. We hug and she instantly tells me that I give awful hugs. She proceeds to bear hug the crap out of me, lifting me off of the ground...

Liza | Senior Portrait | Lafayette, IN

Featured-1

I knew as soon as I saw Liza’s teal dress that I wanted to use the teal wall I spotted months back  as a background (because 1. I loved the bold wall color and 2. matching is as good an excuse as any other) and I knew the lighting setup I want...
