Sassy & Spunky~Bloomington Indiana Child Photography

I had the pleasure of capturing this spunky little girl, full of sass! She was full of energy and a little hard to corral at times, but we got the images that Mommy wanted.

I pulled a few tricks out of my sleeves, such as Simon says, and can you see my fairy?

She is the big “5” now! Interests the same as most little girls, PRINCESSES! One of her favorite’s were Ariel so we had a lot to talk about, since that is my favorite too.

As with all of my sessions, I let the child lead where we are going, so we had some pretty hilarious poses, such as this one:

And a great expression in this one!

Poet and Didn’t Even Know It~ Bloomington, Indiana Family Photographer

Twas a cool, Wednesday evening, April Fool’s Day to be exact!
Though there were no tricks played
but some gorgeous pictures made!
And a family full of love and laughter caught!

family of four

See this particular family- Mom, is Josie’s teacher. She does a weekly poem with her class that they have to read every night, so I couldn’t resist my hand at trying to write one myself! Lol, I think I did pretty good.

It was such a pleasure to work with this family and to spend some time with someone who spends so much time with my daughter. It gave me the privilege to see her in her own environment with her family.

Dad is definitely outnumbered, but I don’t think he minds. He’s got himself some pretty great girls!

Beautiful~Bloomington, Indiana Senior Photographer

It was a beautiful Saturday evening, when Kylee and I met. We decided to hold her session at my studio. I had been dying to get some creek pictures, and I knew she would have the cutest rubber boots for the occasion! And I was not wrong, I’m gonna have to go buy me a pair of these now. (Especially, since mine have a hole in them)

And then I saw this outfit that she brought and had the perfect place in mind! We have an old van at the top of our property and I LOVE taking pictures there. They make for the coolest pics!

Elks Hoop Shoot~New Castle, Indiana Child Photographer

Riley made it to the State Elks Hoop Shoot this year. He was super excited as was the rest of us. We were all so proud of him for making it this far.

The Hoop Shoot was held in New Castle, Indiana. I never realized that it was as big of a deal as it was. The Elks paid for my sister’s family to go to New Castle and stay from Friday to Sunday at the Steve Alford Hotel. Tons of activities, breakfast, supper about anything you could think of. This was such a great thing to be involved in. And Riley had the greatest time!

After the contest was over, we headed over to Hoosier Gym! The gym that the movie Hoosier was made in, we received a tour while we waited on lunch and it was awesome! We later went home that night and watched the movie, I hadn’t seen it in forever and it was really cool to watch something that was made somewhere that you had been.

Cousin Love~Bloomington, Indiana Family Photographer

It was a warm 34 degrees out and I got the bright idea of doing Riley, Kayla and Josie’s pictures outside. They hadn’t had any done together for years.
Every year when my cousins would all come in town, my Grandma would take us to get our photos done. It was always summer though, but I think the snow is just as pretty! And there wasn’t a single complaint from the children. They did so well!!! I was very proud of them. When you try to take photos of your own, you don’t always have such an easy time.
I had so much fun running around the mall one Tuesday afternoon purchasing outfits and accessories for their session. I hit Justice up first for the girls and I scored! Kayla’s vest and skirt came from there, as well as her her blue necklace and her bracelets. Josie’s entire outfit came from there. It was hard finding a shirt for Riley because he is so picky but I found the perfect one at Old Navy for him. It was an absolute blast pairing all of it up and styling the session.
Did you know that assisting you in your wardrobe choices is part of your session with me? We can pull from your closet or we can go on a shopping spree like I did here! Contact me today, to find out more!!!

Snow, Sleds, 4-wheelers ~Bloomington, Indiana Child Photographer

Well we finally got our snow! At least snow that you can sled in. We unfortunately have had it for a while but it was so darn cold out, I wasn’t about to go out and play in it. This Sunday, the temps were great to go out and play in. Cold enough that we needed our overalls but warm enough that you weren’t freezing. The only problem we had was that it was so darn deep!!! Took several trips of Mom going down to make the path for Josie to follow.

Oh, I remember the days well of having to walk back up the hill after the thrill of going down. And this is exactly how I felt too little girl!

But that trip down is so worth it!
Sledding down hill
Oh yes she did! The little terd threw a snowball at Mommy when I had my back turned. Luckily her aim isn’t all that great yet.

After going in to warm up with some hot chocolate and warm cinnamon donuts, Daddy finally got home and got the 4 wheeler out. Uncle Nathan and Aunt Emily had came over to join us. Josie wasn’t so sure about the 4 wheeler deal, so I had to go first to show her what we were talking about. After one trip around she was ready and willing!

And of course the funnest part was falling off, even when she wasn’t going fast enough that she would have been thrown off. She just wanted to lay in the snow.

Uncle Nathan couldn’t resist the fun of the 4 wheeler and took his turn driving Aunt Emily and Josie around.
Family Winter Memories
It was a great Sunday evening spent playing with family in the snow! We made some wonderful memories and the snow can go away now! Lol
I was editing all of these photos and noticed I had kind of taken a sequence of Josie going down the hill, so I had to experiment. Of course I wish they were a little more spread apart, but still fun and pretty cool!

Until next time!

Bloomington Indiana Senior Photographer
I had the privilege of meeting up with this wonderful Senior! Haleigh is a wonderful young woman, inside and out! She is a great leader in her community and sets a great example for the younger generation. She was raised well! I always have a special place in my heart for fellow 4-H’ers. And she is no exception.

I really enjoyed my time with her! These are just a few from her session this past fall.

I wish you much success in your future Haleigh!

Valle Vista Wedding~ Greenwood, Indiana Wedding Photographer

Valle Vista Golf Club Greenwood, Indiana
I had the opportunity to take this great couple’s wedding pictures! Their wedding was held at Valle Vista Golf Club in Greenwood, Indiana.
This was the first time that I worked with a wedding coordinator and let me just say, she made all the difference in the world! Not only for me, but watching what took place with her and the Bridal and Groom Party. She was on top of it the whole day, keeping everything moving according to schedule. And letting the Bride and Groom know what was coming next. It was amazing!
Melissa had told me her dress was silver and had shown me a picture of it. I never in my wildest dream would have pictured it as beautiful as it was.
They did a sneak peek before hand (which I love) and this was the first time that Ryan knew anything about the dress being silver. I believe he knew it wasn’t going to be white, but that was it.
The golf course had a van come and get the bridal party and drive us around the golf course to the different photo opps. That was pretty cool too! Their was gazebo’s, swans and lakes. What more could you ask for!
The golf carts that they came and left on were pretty “SWEET” too! The groom and his party came in to the wedding on golf carts. The whole bridal party left on golf carts.
It was a really good time and a great couple to work with! I wish you much luck in your future as husband and wife!!!

Contact me today to book your wedding!
XOXO,
Shannon

Couple in Love~ Bloomington, Indiana Couple Photographer

Couple in Love- Bloomington, Indiana
It was a warm fall morning on the day we finally got to accomplish this couple’s shoot. She had contacted me back in the spring because they didn’t have any wedding photographs and all she wanted for her birthday was to have some portraits of her and her husband. Certainly can’t blame a girl! After several reschedules due to rain, National Guard duties and other circumstances she finally got her birthday wish. And we couldn’t have asked for a better day.

Clear Creek Trail- Bloomington Indiana

We met down on the Clear Creek trail and simply walked. Enjoying each others company, meanwhile, saying “ooh, stop there, perfect light!” Dear Husband was such a trooper and did very little complaining. đŸ˜‰ [You know how men can be with portraits!

Engagement Couple Shot

She was so excited to have her portraits of her and her husband showcasing their love for one another, to adorn her walls. I was excited to finally give her what she wished for. Every couple should have portraits of just them, whether they are newlywed’s, child-less, a family with children, or a couple that has been married for 50 years. The relationships we have in our lifetime are worth documenting both for us and for future generations.

Let me capture your relationships, contact me today to book your session!

XOXO,
Shannon
