Sara + Corey | Metea Park Engagement Session in Fort Wayne, IN

It was the last of the warm summer evenings and it couldn’t have been more perfect for Sara & Corey’s engagement session (well except for all the mosquitoes). They are such a fun couple and the shoot started off with a picnic in the park, followed by some exploring and squatting all the bugs in what looked like a gorgeous filed of yellow wildflowers.

It was a fantastic shoot and it was hard to choose which images to share.

Bridgette + Colin | Summer Night Engagement Session in Fort Wayne, IN

It was a perfect summer evening (except for the swarming bugs), the sun was setting and that beautiful dusky light was coming. Bridgette & Colin are so kind & beautiful souls, and I enjoyed walking around a local park in Fort Wayne, IN with them. I can’t wait for their wedding later this fall.

Jill | Lifestyle + Creative Portrait Maternity Session in Fort Wayne, IN

Jill wanted to due a mixture of a portrait session of just her & a little in home lifestyle with her husband and their pups to document this time before their first babe arrives. I have really enjoyed doing both a mix of portraiture and lifestyle recently and there is no rule that says you can't do both! I can bring the studio to you. 

Jill is such a beautiful and talented lady and I was thrilled to photograph this exciting time for their little family. Enjoy a few of my favorites from this session. 

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.
