Starved Rock Adventure Session | Halie & Tyler

Halie and Tyler answered our Starved Rock model call a couple months back. They were a perfect fit for what we were looking for! They are adventurous and fun and take a beautiful photo! 

I met up with them at Starved Rock State Park in Oglesby, IL at the beginning of June. These two came all the way from Newaygo, MI!  It was such a HOT and humid day but these two hiked with me for a couple of hours and were such troopers! It was so great to get to know Halie and Tyler. Their love for each other was so sweet and they made my job that much easier! 

Congrats to this wonderful couple on their recent engagemnt!!

We ventured around downtown South Bend and Notre Dame's campus earlier this summer, to document the amazing journey that is SENIOR YEAR! There were many laughs. And look at that smile!!

Luke {Smash the Cake} South Bend, Indiana

"Children hold our hands for awhile, but hold our hearts forever." - Unknown

We met this adorable family at their beautiful home in South Bend a few months ago. The plan was to celebrate little Luke's first birthday with a little cake, and a whole lot of laughs!

Luke and Addison were so adorable! They were so incredibly sweet and kind, and so photogenic!! With their bright eyes and sweet smiles, we couldn't get enough of these two.  

We headed inside where Renea had the cutest setup for little Luke's smash the cake session! With his colorful, spotted bib around his neck, Luke had a blast with his cake! Even though he didn't necessarily "smash the cake", he did enjoy munching on it and even sticking his foot in it and making a big mess! 

Addison eventually jumped in to help him finish his cake, and Luke made sure to not leave anybody out and even gave his momma Renae a bite! 

We had such a blast capturing this special moment for this family and are grateful to give them a wonderful experience to look back on as these two celebrate many more birthdays to come!
