candice, chris, the boys & buck.

this session has all the components of all the things we love…a past bride & groom who had an AMAZING wedding day…who now have two CUTE little boys…who also have a dog (duh, you know we LOVE doggies!)…a cute & quirky downtown…i mean, do i need to continue?!

these guys live in virginia, but were visiting family in ohio, so we made it work and got a session scheduled with them! big shout out to candice’s mom who lovingly gifted this session to them! ๐Ÿ™‚

we had so much fun catching up, laughing, and capturing the craziness that can be two littles, traveling with different schedules & routines and loving on their awesome dog, buck.

thanks so much you guys, we adore you, and we hope these images make you smile for years to come!

cheers! until next time!

candice and her shoes. she wins for greatest shoes, she had BEAUTIFUL wedding day shoes, and these green ones, SO CUTE!

the next few ones of father & son crack us up! hilarious!

BUCK. what a dog. he & homer met too on this trip, they didn’t *love* eachother. homer was quite charming though and worked his magic on candice’s parents…there was some major belly rubs going down. ๐Ÿ™‚

her parents have such a BEAUTIFUL backyard, so we decided to head over to their house and grab a few images…they have a pond, swings, flowers galore, even grape vines…amazing.


YOU GUYS!! it’s that time of year again…the MOST MAGICAL TIME of the year…it’s fall!

-3 days; oct. 13th & 15th at west park in carmel, indiana & oct. 16th in downtown lebanon, indiana.

(that’s right friends, we’re giving you all some FUN options! west park in carmel has such beautiful colors and is more of a traditional local, while downtown lebanon, in. offers some great texture and lots of great brick walls and is more on the offbeat side!)

we had a pretty great time finding some snazzy locations for his senior session and he certainly did not disappoint with his clothing choices!

congrats on your senior year marcus, we can’t wait to see where next year takes you! thanks for being so genuine and cool. ๐Ÿ™‚


l. & r.

he’s so cool. he also has about 15 pairs of sunglasses. see, i told you he’s cool.

we absolutely love when the “in between” moments happen. he was fixing his hair, laughing at something robbie or i said. these images are very much who he is. i adore them.

that smile!

the above and below images were some of the last of the session…and some of my favorite from the day!

baby caroline.

meet miss caroline.

isn’t she just the sweetest? she was alert when we first started, then quickly fell fast asleep…and from the sweet smile on her face, she was dreaming about something pretty wonderful. ๐Ÿ™‚

her parents are SO good with her…and her puppy brother, loomis (keep scrolling, he’s at the bottom!) was so interested in what we were doing that we just HAD to include him in a few images!

thanks so much to her wonderful parents for allowing us to document this amazing time!
