I love these hands and feet.

sweet family {NW Indiana Child and Family Photographer}

I had the joy of meeting and photographing this beautiful family earlier this week. With about a million other pictures to edit I just couldn't keep my itching fingers off of this one. This little gal just melted my heart. She was a little sick for our session but you wouldn't have known it... she just went with the flow, smiling and wooing us all with her baby charm!

She let me stick her in baskets....

in wagons....

and in hats and scarves....

And its no wonder she's so joyful. She is one well loved little baby!

They are so wrapped up in each other. :)

And I wish I could explain to you how much fun her parents were to photograph! Her dad sure has a way of making her mom laugh and there is no doubt in my mind this is one family that will have a lot of love and laughter in their home.

Thanks so much guys, I had a blast. Narrowing these down is going to be tricky!

Tom & Bridget

Tom & Bridget got married this January and trusted me to capture their day. Bridget is one of the most beautiful girls, inside and out, I have ever known and I know she is wildly happy with Tom.

Gorgeous, right?

He's a stud, himself.

These guys agree.

Pucker up Tommy. :)

Tom & Bridget's lives revolve around God. They have purposed to allow Him to transform the way they do everything, offering their whole lives as worship to Him.

And the church was packed out to see them start their lives together.

Celebrating communion together

Probably my favorite image from their day:


We wanted to take some pictures outside but it was like -25 and a blizzard.

They were troopers though.

Bridget, upon arriving at the reception hall. She is SO ready to party.

Spin City.

The big entrance.

This wedding was a serious throw down. Everyone danced all night long. It was a blast!

Tom & Bridget's first dance.

Tom, starting things off right.

This girl knows how to party.

So does her sister.

And her brother.

I like to pretend Shannon is reminiscing about big gorillas with Tom. :)

Everyone's favorite friend.

break it down ladies

I love this picture because this next couple started dating right after this wedding and I think this picture shows that latent "crush" if you will all over anna's face.

All in all everyone had a blast.

But the night had to end at some point.

Thanks Tom & Bridget. I look forward to sharing many memories to come in the future!
