Justin & Heather {Maternity Love} St. Patrick's County Park

This sweet momma-to-be is pretty darn amazing! She’s an art teacher, a fitness instructor and she’s expecting twins! What?! Amazing, right?! And her hubby … well, he is pretty darn amazing too!

Loved spending some time with them a few weeks ago, on a beautiful fall evening, adventuring around St. Patrick’s County Park, in South Bend!

Such a beautiful couple ... and seriously … so sweet! They’re going to be incredible parents! Congrats you gorgeous souls.

Lindsay, Doug and Lambeau

A few weeks ago, Lindsay, Doug and sweet Lambeau and I ventured around St. Patrick's County Park, in South Bend, enjoying some great laughs along the way! Over the summer, her sweet pup had to have surgery on his hip, where they removed part of the bone - and just a few months later, she learned he had cancer. She wanted to document some memories and enjoy as much time as she has left with her sweet boy. Needless to say, our pets become a part of our family and dogs truly are our link to a wonderful paradise. Grateful for my time with them.

Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring—it was peace.

The Reed Family {St. Patrick's County Park} South Bend, Indiana

"When we have each other, we have everything." -Unknown

This beautiful couple got married in 2013, and have since developed a tradition of taking photos every year as their anniversary approaches! Jason and Meghan had an extra-special addition to their photos this year, their daughter Hazel!

In addition to Jason and Meghan's fourth anniversary, little Hazel recently celebrated her first birthday! Equipped with her party hat and matching outfit, she enjoyed a sweet taste of her birthday cupcake! She was all smiles as we snapped away, this beautiful babe made our job easy!

This family was the type you just can't help but fall in love with. They were kind, sweet, and had so much fun together!

SO THANKFUL photography brings forth the opportunity to meet new families and help them continue with their traditions. It was our pleasure to capture another year of happiness for Jason and Meghan (and Hazel, too!) to look back on as their family continues to grow!
