Completely in love with this session and this senior! Morgan rocked his high school senior pictures and I am so thankful for the perfect autumn sunshine after days of rain. He did not have any expectations of location or posing but incorporating his family farm was an important requirement. I was thrilled with the beautiful glow from the fall leaves that are finally starting to turn colors, as well as the field grass and corn!

We had a great time hiking around the woods and through the field to find a nice location for our sunset session. This kid just looks so natural when he is smiling from ear to ear!

His mama just looooves the moody black and whites. Hopefully, they will both appreciate these images when they look back on his final year of high school. Congrats, Morg, you made it this far!

My Happy Place

Creativity in the Garden

 Zinnia Garden | Peru, Indiana

Keeping my creative juices flowing isn't always easy - especially when life is so busy. I stepped out of the office the other afternoon to clear my head and headed to my happy place.

While I'm juggling emails and software updates, doing the tedious work of running a small biz... THIS was going on right outside my door. I couldn't help but stop to smell the flowers.

I find inspiration in a lot of places. Nature never seems to disappoint. God has such an attention to detail. Color, texture and form ...

As I was snapping away at the butterflies covering the zinnias, this little guy swooped down to cautiously observe from atop of a yucca plant.
