Welcome to the blog, a journal about my work, my clients, and their stories. Stay a while and say hello!

The Russell Family


One of my favorite things to do for portrait sessions is shoot at a location that has personal meaning to my clients. The Russells chose to have their family portraits taken on their property in Boonville, IN, and it was such a great idea! They are so proud of their land and I really think that pride and familiarity helped bring out all the smiles. Plus, when your children are almost all grown, you definitely need to document their homecoming, especially when it happens all at once. I love that this collection of images tells a little bit about this family’s roots as well as their love for each other.
