Baby Nadia / Fort Wayne Family Portrait Photographers

Brittney and I have been floating very near the same circles of people for years now.
We both do services for the Fort Wayne area, and are held in high esteem.
It was inevitable that sooner or later the centrifuge of life would spin us together!
I’m so glad it finally happened.  Brittney has a five month old ANGEL of a child named Nadia.
Nadia’s grandmother had crocheted a mermaid costume for her for Halloween, and so it was decided that portraits were in order.  Fort Wayne Family Photographers

LOOK at this little angel.  I cannot wait to see her again.  This first visit kept me floating for hours!Fort Wayne Family Portrait Photographers

Ean and Jessica’s Downtown Wedding / Fort Wayne Philmore on Broadway Wedding Photographer

I was so lucky to be able to shoot this wedding for these two in this incredible venue!The philmore on broadway wedding photographer

They responded to a promotion we had offered earlier this year trying to get into cool places where we had not previously worked.  I got to shoot their engagement and then made a movie poster for their wedding day in an old restored theater, The Philmore on Broadway.  The theme of their wedding was old movie love stories!  Charming and fun, and in such a cool place!The philmore on broadway wedding cake

Ean and Jessica are crazy about each other!  So much so that after the wedding, when it was time to kiss his bride, he didn’t want to stop, and lunged forward to get another kiss before they were proclaimed husband and wife.  Their dinner was divine, flowers from Armstrongs were impeccable as always, and the day and night ran like clockwork thanks to a wedding planner we were so impressed with; Shawna at LaBella Eden, and her assistant Robin.Bride at the philmore on broadway wedding

The Loraine Wedding / Fort Wayne Indiana Wedding Event Photographer

I’ve worked with Doug Loraine and Rachel Dennis Loraine for over a year, photographed their engagement, and facebooked, texted, emailed and called all the way through the planning of the wedding.  She was so worried and the week prior to the wedding, she barely slept, and needed a trip to the doctor.  She didn’t need to worry.  When you plan that far ahead, you really do have time to think of everything.

When it finally came, it was a blast!  The classic car, the cool personalized runner,  the sun glasses for everyone, the jello shots….it all went off without a hitch.  Colorful, and wonderful!  Congratulations guys, and thanks for trusting me as your photographer!

Jessica’s Senior Pictures! / Fort Wayne Indiana Photographer Photography

Jess is the sister of a recent bride.  She’s into music, and fashion and is a delightful woman.  We met in downtown Fort Wayne, goofed around and then went to the mall.

I told her when I walked up, “You’re so beautiful!”   Her mother, (having raised two pretty girls) chimed in “She’s really talented, too.”  If you are raising a girl, you just smiled.  I know you did!

People ask me all the time if I am just a wedding photographer.  Heck no.  That may be all the majority of the population sees from me, but that’s just because so many people are involved in a wedding day.  I’m blessed to do professionally every type of photography I want to, and get paid for it!  I’m also blessed to have this angel’s face in my portfolio!

Thanks for asking me, Jessica!

Sydney at Five Months / Fort Wayne Indiana Baby Family Photographer

This, as many of you know, is my very first Womb to Bloom series!

Laura decided that Sydney’s first cereal would be during our 5th monthly visit, which tickled me to death.  I LOVE shooting firsts!  Baby is not crazy about being on her tummy yet, so although we tried that first, she vetoed it quickly.  A trade-off presented itself in no time though. She LOVES her toes!

As it turned out, she also loves cereal, and so does her “brother” Sampson!  Watching this baby and her dog was an added bonus.  Following this family through this first year is more fun each time.

~~~Hilary and Derrick and our Rainy Day / Ft Wayne Engagement Photography

Finally it was time to get some pictures of Hilary and Derrick. We’ve been texting and emailing and facebooking and talking on the phone. EVERYTHING but actually looking at each other. We’d never met!
We had hoped to rock downtown like I love to do, finding new nooks and crannies; It rained, and it rained and it rained, and with Hilary’s beautiful silk blouse, outside was out of the question.
SO I schlepped into the Hilton with my soggy gear and my assistant,and there stood two of the best looking people I’d ever met.(How do I get this lucky?!) They were fun, and laid back,and relaxed, and willing to do whatever I asked.
Here’s some of what we got.

Their wedding is just a few weeks away. This was for their guest book. Now I’m even more excited for their wedding day! Thanks guys!

Baby London!





London’s mom and I barter work. She is one of the best dog groomers in Fort Wayne, and we admire each other’s work very much. (She’s also a pretty cool woman, and has become a friend of mine!) I went and met London and saw little Ross again, who I had photographed last fall. She makes pretty kids. This time her handsome man was there with us, so we got some family stuff too!

Nioka and Adam’s Wedding

Nioka and Adam hired me a year ago, and I’ve LOVED working with them through their engagement shoot as well as her bridal session a couple of weeks ago. They were married at The History Center in downtown Fort Wayne this past Saturday. We got to go out on the street that night, and as we were packing up, the rain that had been forecast for the day let loose.

Here’s the link to the finished product!
