Megan | Winter Senior Session

The third of Megan’s 4 Season Senior Sessions was such a fun one, but as you might guess, it was REAL cold.  I think in the middle of this session, both of us stopped and realized that there were pieces of our hair that were frozen!

This winter in Fort Wayne has been really warm and unpredictable at times, so as soon as I saw a pretty big accumulation of snow, I texted Megan and her mom to see if there was any possibility of doing her Winter session THAT afternoon, and they were both amazing and made it happen!  I was so grateful that we got to take these photos with plenty of snow around!

Here are my favorites from Megan’s winter wonderland senior session! 🙂

M E G A N | Fort Wayne Senior Photography | Summer Session

 

Meet Megan!  Megan is a 2017 Senior who also happens to be my cousin’s daughter, which technically (I’ve googled, to be sure) makes her my first cousin once removed.  Fun fact: the correct way to address your cousin’s children is niece or nephew, even though you’re a form of cousin (I think we’ll just stick with first names here).

Megan is a 4 Season Senior, meaning that we’ll be doing one Senior Photography Session in every season of her senior year!  I love the idea of documenting each season of a senior’s last year of high school with photos they can always look back on.  Since it’s such a time of change and transitions (and I’m such a sucker for nostalgia), I think the ability to have a snapshot of each season from such an important year can be such a priceless thing to have!

With this being Megan’s summer session, we wanted to make sure to take full advantage of the vibrant greens and golden colors that summer brings with it- especially during golden hour (basically an hour before the sun sets, when it gives off a really pretty, warm light).  I also loved the colors Megan chose to wear for these photos!  They played so well with the natural colors that were already all around us!

We started our session in a field behind a white barn and ended it on a nearby bridge over one of Fort Wayne’s 3 main rivers.  The sun was in a perfect spot behind some trees nearby for most of our session, and in some of these shots, it came through and brought some nice warmth and even a few sun flares with it! This session was a lot of fun and I’m really excited for our fall session coming up in a bout a month or so.  Stay tuned! But for now, here are some of my favorites from Megan’s summer session!  Enjoy!

SAVANNAH | Elkhart Newborn Session

This newborn session with Savannah and her family was on a hot, muggy day, but they were all fantastic troopers and rocked it!  Newborn photos are usually easiest to capture within the first 10 days after birth, because the younger the baby is, the more they will usually want to sleep and will be easier to photograph and put them into poses.  Although Savannah was 7 weeks old when we could finally get to doing this session, I think she did a fantastic job (as did her parents!) at making this shoot work.  Although she doesn’t have quite as much of that “newborn look” in the photos, one benefit I saw from doing this session a little later than most was that the photos capture a little more of her unique personality and looks that she will probably carry with her for the next months, years, and decades! Savannah is the perfect, adorable addition to the Law family, but I am a little biased since her dad (Jason) is my cousin! It’s always such a treat to photograph family (especially when they are tiny and super cute!) and I’m so glad Jason and Mindy asked me to photograph their little girl!

We started our photo session at a state park near where the family lives and found some nice shaded areas to snap a few photos.

With the weather being so hot, we didn’t spend super long at the park and Savannah decided to take a little nap in her mom’s arms.Law-41

We went back to the Law’s house to do a few shots of just Savannah.  She was bright eyed and bushy tailed almost the whole time, and I loved her expressions!

Lucy (the family pug) joined for a few!

Mindy had a fantastic idea to use her wedding dress as a backdrop and Savannah made herself right at home!

Parent’s wedding rings on toes!  The CUTEST thing.

And, of course, tiny feet are always adorable.

We moved out to the backyard and took a few more!

If you’ve never seen an adorable baby, naked, except for tied-on angel wings, you’re missing out.  So here you go.
