Maddie | Class of 2016

I am FINALLY taking the time to share some of my most recent photography sessions! I’ve been so busy shooting and editing, that the blog part of this gig has been completely ignored. I’m really trying to do better. I promise.

First up is Maddie. This gorgeous Carroll High School senior was a natural in front of the camera and I such a fantastic time during her shoot.

Sugar Love Boutique | Becca’s Picks

Let’s not even talk about how overlooked this poor blog is, okay? We’ll move right on to the pretty pictures!

Here is some of my most recent work! I was thrilled to photograph Becca Tilley (fans of The Bachelor don’t need me to explain why this would be so exciting!) in her favorites from Sugar Love Boutique‘s fall line.

Not all items are available yet online, but Fort Wayne folks can find lots of them at Sugar Love Boutique in Woodland Plaza.

And there are tons of other beautiful items at sugarloveboutique.com. Happy Shopping, ladies!

Hailee | Class of 2015

Hello! Welcome back to my oh-so neglected blog! My goal this winter was to catch up on blogging some of my favorite sessions, but here we are in May and you can see how well my plan worked out! My revised plan is to share with you sessions of my wonderful seniors who will be graduating in the coming month!

First up is Hailee, my niece! How much do I love this girl?! She is so sweet and extremely funny. My kids just adore her and always beg for a sleepover when she comes to visit, which Hailee very kindly agrees to! During a visit last November, Hailee, her mom, and I ventured around Fort Wayne, trying to find spots out of the freezing cold wind, and had ourselves a fabulous senior photo shoot! You can tell Hailee’s a Wisconsin Girl– she doesn’t even look cold!

Here are some of my favorites…

It’s feels like forever since I’ve entered a photo into an I Heart Faces Challenge– I’ve missed it! One of my all-time favorite 2014 pictures is from my first Red Thread Session with sweet Soliana and her new family– here she is with her big sister having the cutest giggle. Happy New Year everyone! Cheers to lots of giggles and love in 2015!

Allie | Class of 2015

I’m putting my “To Do” list on hold this afternoon and taking a minute to play catch up on the blog!

I’ve been dying to share more of Allie’s senior session. Allie is a senior this year at Bishop Dwenger High School in Fort Wayne and had been crowned Homecoming Queen just a week or two before our session together (as you will see! :))

Morgan | Class of 2015

It seems like I’ve known Morgan for forever and I was thrilled to have the chance to take her senior photos. She has been a favorite babysitter at the Sloffer house for a few years now, plus she’s an incredibly talented dancer and absolute sweetheart.

Here are some of my favorite photos from our time together…

Megan | Class of 2015

Yet another fall season is zooming past and last year I was the worst at blogging my sessions (shame on me) and I vowed to be better this year. “Blogging” is always last on my to do list, well, not last-last, but it’s down there with “put away laundry” and “exercise,” so yeah, it just doesn’t happen as often as it should, you know?

I’ve had an incredible autumn filled with senior and family sessions and I am excited to share more. Tonight I’m sharing Megan’s senior photos.

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen that Megan is my next door neighbor and one of my kids’s all-time favorite people. Megan was in 2nd grade when my family moved in next door and she has been coming over to play with my kids, and eventually babysit them, since Preston and Maura were just itty-bitty.

But now she’s a senior in high school and it was time for some photos of this beautiful gal and I was thrilled to be the one to take them!

If you don’t know Megan, I will tell you that she is incredibly sweet, kind, polite, and absolutely hilarious. I feel very blessed that she is the one who has been setting an example for my kids as they have grown up with her and looked up to her. Okay, I’m getting all mushy and sappy, so on to the photos before I start blubbering at my computer!

Sarah | Class of 2015

On a steamy, mosquito-filled evening a few weeks back, Sarah and I met up for her senior portrait session. Even with a can of “Off” in my camera bag, I was itching for days after our shoot, but I can honestly say it was worth every mosquito and chigger bite, every nettle that stung me in the foot. Not only is Sarah beautiful, but she was a natural in front of the camera. Check out some of her session…

The Plattner Family | Red Thread Session

I’m delighted to be back blogging and sharing some photos from my heart-filling session with the Plattners. This wonderful family just added a long-awaited 6th member– sweet little Soliana. We spent a beautiful Indiana summer evening together, sharing lots of giggles, saying, “hello” to some goats, and even singing a little “Let it Go.”
