THARP FAMILY

The Tharp family session was so much fun. My two older brothers are really good friends with Brent and Elizabeth so I've known them for years. Their two daughters, Emma and Ella are so stinkin' cute and really sweet. The girls clearly adore and trust Brent and Elizabeth and they were very affectionate towards them throughout the entire evening. 

After pretty much every family session I shoot, I tell David how much I learn from the parents just by watching them love their kids well. This one was no exception. Enjoy ✨

SMITH FAMILY

David and I had tons of fun with the Smith family: Sara, Adam, Owen (in grey), Elias (in blue) and little Aviana. Sara and Adam are so kind and very hands-on and intentional with their kids. The twins are precocious and I loved listening to them tell me about the summer adventures they had planned. They also adore their beautiful little sister Avi and blew bubbles for her at one point. Their post-session reward was ice cream and they invited us to join (we gladly accepted) 🍦Enjoy this sweet summer family session 😊

MEGAN + MATT

Megan and Matt got to know one another over long conversations around a fire at Crooked Lake in Indiana. In Megan's words: 

"Matt is a night owl, and I was working nights at the time so I was also used to being up late. We frequently were the last two awake in the campground and would stay up sitting around the campfire or going on a boat ride and talk.  We realized how much we related and connected with each other.  We started our relationship as friends.  I'm happy I get to marry my best friend!"

David and I laughed a lot during this session and I loved getting to know these two better. We started out at a local park and finished with a beautiful Indiana sunset in a field across the street from their house. Enjoy! ✨
