Mr C is one of the strongest guys that I know and it was such a privilege as a Fort Wayne photographer.  His strength knows no boundaries and he’s shown this all his life.  From a young age he was diagnosed with scoliosis and shortly after his Mom and I talked about how we would do a photo shoot with every single cast and brace he’s ever worn.  Seven years later here we are….

I couldn’t help getting a little teary eyed as we lined everything up and remembering all the special duct tape that he picked for every new cast and the excitement every time one was taken off and he was given a few days to swim for hours in the tub.  He absolutely loves being in the water and receiving his “bye bye” cast pictures from the tub is one of my favorite things.

This scoli warrior still has some more hurdles to get through, but he doesn’t let it get him down as you can see from his smiles.  I think he was just excited to be taking these pictures!

So much love for you Carson!

How stunning is this Mokena Senior session?  Miss G was an absolute natural and her blue eyes were mesmerizing.  It was the perfect night for a session and her outfits were on point.

I’ve watched her grow up from the time she was just a toddler and it’s hard to believe that she’s off to college now.  I know she’ll do great things.

The University of Missouri is lucky to have you!

It doesn’t get much sweeter than spending my mornings with newborns, especially ones like Miss A at her Naperville Newborn Session.  I was dying over her cheeks and perfect pouty lips and made sure to get plenty of detail shots of them.

Mom requested lots of purple and I was more than happy to provide.  Her other request was to incorporate a blanket that was handmade by her Great Grandma and the second I wrapped it around her she nestled right into it.  This is certainly one session that I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites and I know her parents did as well!

Miss B has to be one of the happiest little girls I’ve had the pleasure of meeting.  Her toothy grin is everything and she had the cutest outfit changes.

It was a cooler day when we met up so we made sure to make the most some super cute indoor shots and then headed to my favorite spot at Lincoln Park.  How can you not love having the Chicago skyline in the background?!

Happy Birthday Miss B!

Being a part of a “fire family” means that we love our boys in blue just as much and I finally got the opportunity to shoot a styled police officer session I’ve been wanting to do forever!  Pink Corvette, adorable Miss Mia and a Dad more than happy to follow my direction made this session amazing.  Mia hammed it up for me and I think her Daddy was nice enough to let her off with a warning 😉
