First Day of Kindergarten – Quinn

School is back in session, and Quinn is off to Kindergarten!

Wrapped up Summer Vacation with a Back to School / Off to Kindergarten session with Quinn. He was more excited for school to begin than for holding a sign board but he quickly warmed up to his new modeling gig. (The attitude for the camera from this guy! He’s ready for the stage and screen.)

Congrats, Quinn, and welcome Class Of (wait for it)… 2030!

Windy Spring Senior Portrait Sessions – Emily

Spring is in full swing and gusting through Michiana as March is all but gone. Here’s a flashback from Emily’s windy outdoor Senior Portrait Session last April around Beutter Park and Battell Park in Mishawaka, Indiana.

Emily planned a mix of heels to barefoot, jeans to sundress to skirt outfits for her sunny and windy afternoon outdoor shoot. I’m glad to have my subjects involved in the session and I love it when they throw out an idea and I get to make it happen for them. Especially if she was going to walk out on a submerged walkway in cold water or scale a slanted concrete outcropping in heels!

Here are my personal favorites from the shoot. – Enjoy!

Children’s Outdoor Autumn Portraits – Stella

It’s been a while since I overloaded the blog wrote about our First Friday Fashion (fail) contest from September, or the free photo shoot prize our winner received.

In late October I joined our contest winner Aim for the free photo shoot giveaway. She contrived a clever and generous plan to enlist the help of Facebook friends to vote for her photo entries to win the shoot for her daughter Stella.

Here are a few favorites from Stella’s outdoor fall photo shoot around Beutter Park and Battell Park in downtown Mishawaka, Indiana.
