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.

Welcome to the World Sweet Baby Girl Rowan {South Bend, Indiana}

There is so much love in this GORGEOUS family of three!

I've known Lauren, this beautiful momma, for a few years now, and I cannot tell you what a WONDERFUL person she is! Her and her hubby welcomed their sweet, baby girl Rowan last year, and we got to share in some moments together a few months back, in their beautiful home. It was an honor - and a joy to document such wonderful memories with them, and their cutie pie, new addition. :)

Scott & Jen | Four Winds Field

Scott and Jen were married on a crisp fall day in October. The day started with a torrential downpour and ended with an equally impressive torrential downpour.

Their ceremony was meant to be outdoors, but as the day transpired, there was some certainty that an outdoor wedding just wasn’t going to be possible on this day.

To most couples, this would be devastating, but Scott and Jen, and the rest of their family and friends embraced it all. They embraced the rain. They embraced the changes they had to make for their ceremony. But more so, they embraced every last moment. And despite the gloomy day, nothing could diminish the love that shined so BRIGHT between these two wonderful humans, who managed to find each other in this crazy world.

It was a perfectly, imperfect day, and we were so darn grateful to be a part of it.

Fr. Phillip Ganir, S.J., Conductor {Basilica of the Sacred Heart}

One of the many joys of being a photographer, is capturing people's most important moments ... The ones that you will always remember; and when you look back on the photographs, you feel exactly what you felt in the moment you were in them.

I had the honor of documenting the recital of Fr. Phillip Ganir, entitled, Docere, Delectare, Movere: Carissimi's Jephte Charpentier's Te Deum and the Jesuit Vision, in the Lady Chapel, at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, on the campus of Notre Dame. It was his graduate conducting recital, and if I do say so myself, he moved everyone in the room with the beautiful music that filled it! While the Basilica was a breathtaking backdrop, the music that Fr. Ganir, Conductor, the Notre Dame's Concordia Choir, and the Ritornello Orchestra created, was simply incredible! It was no surprise that he received a standing ovation - and an A++!!

You can hear some of Fr. Phillip's recital HERE. :-)
