The Birth of Irie – South Bend Birth Photographer

I was honored to capture the birth of Irie for Chris & Kate. After 3 boys, they were expecting a girl! This birth was so amazing and Kate was an absolute rockstar through the entire process. Chris is an amaing husband and was a huge support to Kate – it was beautiful to see. Irie is so loved and I met her 3 big brothers are enjoying all their time with her!


Femia Family ~ South Bend Family Photographer

4 words. I. LOVE. THIS. FAMILY.
I met Ashley after Vivian was born and got to photograph that sweet girl when she was just 10 days old. This session was just as good (if not better!) and I’m so thankful that I get to photograph them! Josie and Vivian are adorable as can be and can definitely be bribed with ice cream! 🙂 Chris and Ashley are so fun too! Dads are always hard to get comfortable during a session but Chris was amazing and you can tell he loves his girls so much!

David | Valparaiso Newborn Photographer

I have known David’s Mom and Dad for a little over 3 years now.  I had photographed their first born, Aubrey, when I was just coming onto the newborn photography scene and one of their friends had purchased a gift certificate from me as a baby shower gift for Nicole.  I was so happy that I was able to photograph their second child, David, this year.  Dave & Nicole have become such a part of my life that I consider them more than just clients – they are friends! <3  I sometimes feel like I spend more time with them talking than photographing.  🙂  Dave & Nicole, thank you for the honor of photographing David!  He’s precious!

Lemans | Edwardsburg Michigan Family Photographer

I was completely honored to get the email from Kimra asking me if she could book a family session with me.  I had met the Lemans when Kimra and I were pregnant with our girls (hers – Grace – mine – Leryn) almost 5 years ago.  But the bond between our families goes back to the college days of my husband and Tim at Indiana State University.  They were fraternity brothers.  Through the power of Facebook, they were able to reconnect and found that Tim’s family was living only a couple of miles of ours.  The rest is history.  🙂  Tim and Kimra, you are blessed with very respectful beautiful children!  Thank you for choosing me to photograph your family!  Hope to see you soon!

Thayer | South Bend Indiana Newborn Photographer

Carrie contacted me when Thayer was close to three weeks old.  I admit, I was a bit nervous about scheduling a newborn session at that age just because I typically like to do newborn sessions between 8-12 days old.  3 weeks was kind of pushing it.  We scheduled his session for 4 days later.  In the midst of getting the details worked out, I learned that Carrie and Rob had adopted Thayer through an adoption agency in Indianapolis.  My heart was full with excitement for them!  They were at work one day (both are teachers at Merrillville High School) and got the call that a baby had been born and the birth mom picked them to be his parents!  Off they went to Indianapolis to pick up their newborn baby! <3 We had a wonderful session and Thayer was an absolute DREAM to work with.  Thank you, Carrie and Rob, for giving me the honor of photographing your sweet baby boy!
