Andrew & Kelsey | Maternity Session | San Bernardino, California Wedding Photographer

In the spring we got the exciting news that we were going to be an aunt and uncle. As soon as they told us they were expecting, we started working on planning our trip out to visit them because we were not going to miss the opportunity to take their maternity photos! A few weeks ago we got to take a little time off to go visit them in their home in San Bernardino, California.

San Bernardino is nestled right in the mountains of southern California AND much to our excitement, lacks that Midwestern humidity! We had an amazing time hiking, exploring, and taking a little break for a few days. The evening before we were catching a plane to head to Hawaii, we went on one more hike to capture their maternity photos.

Since they spend so much time exploring the area, we actually just described the type of location that would make for a good sunset spot and left the rest up to Kelsey & Andrew. And MAN did they do well! We had no idea where they were taking us, and honestly, it was really exciting to be preparing to work with a surprise location. As we finally made the last turn before coming to the clearing my brother had been planning on, we were amazed. I think you’ll see why as you go through the photos, but the location was a perfect spot to see the city below, the mountains all around us, and sunset towards Los Angeles.

Another exciting thing about this maternity session, as if it needs anything else, is that Andrew and Kelsey were our very first wedding couple! They took a chance on us way back when we started and we will be forever grateful to them and can’t wait to capture so many happy moments throughout our lives with them!

We’re are so excited to welcome our little nephew in September and then hopefully learn how to be parents by January when we welcome our little guy!

Disney Inspired New Born Session | Indianapolis Family Photographer

Have you been to Disney World? If so, the magic of the place is no news to you. It’s no exaggeration that the experience is always magical and that Walt really did hit the mark with making a park that all ages can enjoy. Adam and I are pretty big fans of Disney. Whether it be the parks, the movies, or just the magic in general. Well, we at last thought we were big Disney fans. Then we met Aly and Cory when we captured their wedding back in 2017. These two are actually the biggest Disney fans. They got engaged there, had Disney touches throughout their wedding, go about once a year, and of course announced their little guy joining their family while they were on a trip there. So, it was only natural to incorporate something so special to them in their new born session.

Their little guy was so cute with his Mickey ears and of course, being the pet lovers we are, we could pass up incorporating his fur sister as well!

Armstrong Family | Summer Family Photo Session | Columbus, Indiana Family Photographer

You know how photographers talk often about how much they love golden hour? Golden hour is that sweet spot when the sun is setting and it creates a warm golden glow. If you take a look at this blog, I think you’ll fully understand why we love it so much and actually schedule a lot, if not all, sessions around that perfect time of day. The warm golden feel it gives to the photos helps create a perfect natural feel especially for summer and fall photo sessions!

We hit golden hour perfectly for this summer family photo session in Mill Race Park right in the heart of our hometown, Columbus, Indiana. Along with the great light, we also had so many natural, candid moments with this family, it made for some of our new favorites!

Late Winter Maternity Session at Holliday Park | Indianapolis Family Photographer

We met these two extraordinary humans almost two years ago when we took their engagement photos. We had just started our photography business and were so excited that they took a chance on a young couple who were new to the wedding world. Following them through so many incredible stages of life - engagement, wedding - we were elated when they took a chance on us once again and asked us to continue on their exciting journey with Baby Hutson. You two are a treasure and that little baby is so incredibly lucky.
