Ellington/Hartman Family | Foster Park Lifestyle in Session Fort Wayne, IN

So while I don't have any kids, I was a nanny for 8 years and that has taught me that little ones don't want to just sit and smile for more than a small handful of photos (I can't blame them). That is why I enjoy photographing family lifestyle sessions so munch because I can document kids just doing their thing. That could be running around a park and showing me their cool tricks or if it's in home then it's show and tell of all the toys. I love that aspect of lifestyle sessions and feel it's so important to have real life memories. 

It might have been a chilly spring day with this adorable family, but that didn't stop them from enjoying their favorite park in Fort Wayne. Below are a few of my favorites. 

A Look Back On 2017 | Fort Wayne & Indianapolis Photographer

What a year 2017 was in more ways that I can list. It was an amazing year filled with change, growth, and opportunities I had only dreamed about. I had the privilege of working with so many amazing couples, families, and individuals; who I can't thank enough for making this year one to remember. I loved meeting new people in Fort Wayne, IN, Indianapolis, IN, Chicago, IL, Fairfield, CT and Michigan. 

I decided to just share an overview of the year, and I also mixed in some of my editorial work from my new website I launched earlier in the spring www.ruthyaro.com

Cheers to 2017 & excited to see what 2018 will bring. 

 

 

I couldn't end this post without sharing the about the highlight of the year. I was given an amazing opportunity to freelance for The Wall Street Journal a couple times, and through it I had the pleasure of meeting some of the kindest people.

The Fishers | Fort Wayne, IN Family + Lifestyle Photography

I've known Maddie since I was a kid, and when I moved back to Fort Wayne we reconnected. Maddie and her husband Mitch are some of the most genuine and caring souls I know. Their little man is so full of personality and he decided we are now besties while I was there. It was a chilly Sunday morning in October, and a perfect day for a slow morning filled with coffee, homemade breakfast sandwiches and lots of coffee.
