9 Months Old!

Wow!!  Nine months sure does sound a LOT longer than it really is!  My sweet baby girl turned nine months old a few days ago and I just can't get over how much she has changed already!  She is crawling like a pro these days and she loves to stand up and balance herself without holding on to anything!!  She will be walking before we know it!  It's amazing to see how intelligent she is already and at the same time all this growing makes me a little bit sad.  It's hard to let go of my teeny, tiny little baby and let her become a "big girl."  But then again, one look at her and all the amazing things she does and I can't help but be excited to see what she'll do next!  :)

2011 Clinton County Fair Queen!

Shannon is one of my former seniors and she is clearly a gorgeous gal! But one thing that cannot be conveyed completely in a photo is someone's personality.  While you can show some personality traits in a photo, meeting someone in person is obviously quite different. Shannon has a wonderfully warm, friendly, spunky, bubbly personality!  She has a really fun sense of humor, a contagious laugh, and is very intelligent and confident.  Add all those things to her gorgeous-ness and you have 2011 Clinton County Fair Queen!!!  Her next stop is the Indiana State Fair and I'm really hoping she'll be bringing home another sash because Shannon is definitely a stand-out!!  Good Luck, Shannon!!

(More photos coming soon!)

Hannah's Senior Session

Well, one thing is for sure....summer is HERE!!!!  What a super HOT day we had for Hannah's session!  There was no possible way to avoid sweating the entire time we were out there...and poor Hannah had to keep smiling and looking gorgeous despite the uncomfortable heat.  She even changed into jeans at one point!!  Whew!!!  But she was a total trooper and did a fabulous job the entire time!  No one would ever know just how hot it was just looking at her portraits!!  She has gorgeous eyes that kept reminding me of the famous actress, Leelee Sobieski.  Check her out!

Love is in the air!

I am SOOOOO happy for these two!!  Sonya and Greg are getting married this coming October and this wedding is going to be very special.  Sonya has been my best friend for about 15 years now and I have always wanted her to find the man of her dreams.  And it turns out that Greg is the one!  They are so sweet together and you can just tell they are a perfect fit for each other.  Greg let me in on his top secret plan to propose to her many months ago and keeping that secret was killing me!  And now that they are officially getting hitched, the wedding planning fun begins!  And of course I couldn't pass up getting a few engagement portraits of this happy couple!  Congratulations, you two!!!  Can't wait for your big day!

And I always like to use different post processing techniques so I wanted to put another version of the kiss here to show a different look.

Shelby & Kory's Engagement Session

I absolutely loved this couple!!  :)  They were so sweet from the start...and you can definitely tell they are in love.  They've been together for three years already and they got engaged at Easter.  It's very easy to see that they just have one of those connections that most everyone hopes to have and their happiness is contagious when you see them together.  And although most girls don't mind getting their picture taken, lots of guys just are not into it....but Kory was really great about participating and making a good effort to enjoy the process.  I definitely appreciated that!  And then there is Shelby...just look at her and those gorgeous, piercing eyes...that gal is WAY photogenic for sure!  Congrats on your engagement and many wishes for a lifetime of happiness together!

Emily's Senior Portraits

Well, clearly my lucky streak of working with such gorgeous gals continues!  Emily was great to work with and she is very photogenic....she's tall, blonde, and beautiful!  And on top of that, she's also an athlete so this girl has got it going on!  :)  She was kinda quiet during her session but I could definitely tell that she's not always that quiet!  It was easy to see her inner model coming out the whole time!  Just take a look her working it!
