Happy Birthday Sweet Harlee {Middlebury, Indiana}

I had the opportunity to photograph this beautiful little lady a few weeks ago, to commemorate a big milestone ... her first birthday!

This session was extra special, because her momma, Brittany, is a dear friend!

I ventured to their beautiful home in Middlebury, Indiana and it was quite the beautiful day! There were balloons, sweet puppies, beautiful smiles and the cutest cake! I think Harlee loved every last taste! ;)

So grateful for these memories made with her, and her sweet little girl!

Happy Birthday sweet Harlee! You are precious and oh so loved!

Mooney Family | The History Museum {Downtown South Bend}

I met this beautiful family last fall. It was a gorgeous day, with lots of warmth - and lots of laughs with this crew!

We met at The History Museum in downtown South Bend, in the Historic Oliver Gardens that surround one of the historic mansions, Copshaholm. It's quite the beautiful backdrop for some family moments!

These three little ladies, and their momma and dad, were so much fun to adventure around with! Their sense of wonder to everything that surrounded them was such a wonderful thing to see! Grateful for these memories made with them!

And it's so true ... Family time is DEFINITELY the best time. :)

Beach Day Fun {Tiscornia Beach | St. Joseph, MI}

Loved hanging with these sweet cousins at a little beach in St. Joseph, Michigan a few weekends ago! While it was a little dreary, they made the most of it - and we had a lot of fun to! 

Being with children is 'chicken soup' for the soul. They remind us that being a kid again isn't impossible - and that there is a whole lot of goodness left in this world. <3
