I love to sip from a warm cup while I do so.

What a beautiful spring evening and a pretty young woman! I met Molly and her mom Mary in downtown Bloomington for her senior session. They are Bloomington natives and Mary recalled memories as we wandered the streets taking Molly's pictures. In our wanderings we saw the perfect chair in a vintage storefront. I simply had to have it. We had fun carrying it across Vernon Ave. to our second location on Constitution Trail. The flowers were in bloom, the chair added a touch of whimsy, and Molly's expressive face and gentle spirit show up in her images. Here's a sneak peek.

Dear Hannah and Laurel,
Thank you for letting me play with you at your house. You have fun toys and share really well. I am happy that Laurel is learning to walk and that Hannah is such a good big sister. The supper that your mommy and daddy fixed for John and me was very tasty too. They are pretty awesome parents. I would keep them if I were you.
I hope you like your pictures. I think you are both adorable! Let's do it again sometime.

The holidays bring families together. Kaitlyn and Makayla have both been students of mine, and their little cousins were visiting Grandma's house for Christmas. These little boys were so cute and wiggly...I loved it! The girls and I ducked outside for a few quick shots on this snowy day...they have the most beautiful eyes that just popped in the winter wonderland.
I was honored to capture some images of thsese four generations celebrating together.

Nate and Leigh Ann welcomed Anna Hope on November 3, 2009. She is surrounded by a wonderful extended family and more love than can be imagined. Oh...and she is absolutely gorgeous!!

There was some skeptism about the whole bare feet idea on the part of dad, but he humored Yashica and me. I'm glad. I love all their bare feet....and big smiles. Beautiful day. Beautiful family.

The colors were gorgeous this October weekend. I took a walk with the Ashenfelters and soaked in the beauty of the day. This is such a special family. John and Liane are faithful servants and leaders. Elise and Zach are great kids. Tucker the dog is absolutely adorable, but when he got "difficult" I had to fire him as a model. I'll consider giving him another chance...someday. The rest of the family? Any day.

It was so much fun catching up with Nathan and his mom Laurie while we took his senior pictures. I've also had fun seeing action shots of him on the front of the sports page several times this basketball season. Wherever his future leads, it will be bright.

John and I headed out to Funks Grove to take family pictures for the Thompsons. I didn't tell Alani at the time, but this was the first full family shoot I've done...and I loved it! I had never met Mark and Alani's kids before, but we became good friends very quickly! They were absolutely...delightful. That's the word...delightful. The weather was perfect, leaves were everywhere, and they obviously enjoy being together. We got tons and tons of great images....here are a few.

Three months old and pretty in pink! I love her little tongue! Kelsey's mommy and daddy came to my house for her pictures, and we actually took some of them in my bedroom, of all places. I have this chest of drawers by my window that I wanted to set her on. Robbie and Candice were good sports...and they have a precious little babe.

Natalie was home on fall break and assisted me on this shoot. It was a lot of "girl fun" and good to catch up with Paige.

I wasn't really sure how to answer her. I mean, I've always taken pictures for people. I fumbled around for an answer and somehow ended up meeting her and her sweet soon-to-be first grader at McGraw Park last July.
We promised Kylie a romp in the fountain at the end of the shoot. She looked skeptical, but it didn't take long for the idea to grow on her. We all had a riot...and all got soaked.

As I post these images, I'm reminded of the miracle, not just of birth, but of the growth that happens in the first year of a baby's life. Today, Elly is a happy nine-month-old who has recently welcomed two little cousins into her family.
I love her mommy and daddy. I have known Andy most of his life and stand in awe of how God uses him to further His kingdom. Abby and I were teaching partners for three wonderful years, daily "spurring one another on," as we tried to teach and love our students well.
Elly is a blessing...and will be raised to be a blessing to others. I'm so thankful to count her whole family as some of my dearest friends.

I actually can't find the file with all of Emily's senior session on them, but found these still on my computer. I had a great time with Emily and her mom last spring as she was preparing to graduate at the top of her class and head off to Wheaton College. She defines "bright and beautiful."

This is where we start...with Kyrie! I've watched Kyrie grow up, used to carppol her to her junior high classes at Cornerstone, and was even her cheerleading coach! It has been a joy to watch her grow up, graduate, find her "prince charming," and become Mrs. Drew Moses. Here's a peek at her senior session (2008) and a quick engagement session (2009). I was not the photog for their wedding (yikes...not sure I'm ready for that!), but did have my Canon on hand to catch a couple of shots!
