We patiently waited for the rain to stop … and it was worth it. This senior session had the perfect combination of beautiful evening light and natural rustic locations to make Conner feel right at home. It makes it even more special when the location has sentimental value. From his Indiana family farm land to his Grandma’s house, each location provided unforgettable backdrops to showcase this Class of 2019 Senior!

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!

Although we photographed this outdoor session in unseasonably warm weather, this young lady did not disappoint! Her enthusiasm to go the extra mile to get the shot just left me in awe. I would not be surprised if she found a career in fashion or modeling.

Equestrian Portrait Photography Session
Equestrian Horse Portrait Photography Session | Greentown, IN

This girl has it going on! It doesn't hurt that she happens to be my daughter and I just LOOOVE her. She requested a few pictures with her horse while at an open show. We found a nice quiet spot to spend a few minutes one-on-one in between events. Her horse Jewels is usually quite a ham in front of the camera.

This natural beauty was a JOY to photograph! We had a blast wandering through the gorgeous Avon Gardens in Avon, Indiana. Even though summer won't be around much longer, this day will linger on in my mind. Beautiful textures, color and LIGHT!

Always a little girl at heart - this setting was magical and gave me the fairy tale garden glow that highlights her creative personality. Teens have the best props and accessories!
