Ava Newborn | Evansville Indiana Photography

Lacey and Jon cuddled, kissed and marveled over their sweet girl. She’s totally perfect and these two couldn't be more proud. Ava was wide awake and totally alert for most of the session, soaking up all the attention and affection.  

We photographed Miss Ava’s newborn session in her perfectly designed nursery. It was clear these two and their families put in hours of work and love into this sweet girls room!  

Lacey and Jon, I love getting to document your life and watch your family grow! You’re sweet, chill and beautiful parents. Ava is incredibly lucky.

Rachael and Patrick | Disney World Engagement Session

Rachael and Patrick met when Rachael was in high school and Patrick was in college, Patrick noticed her right away! Now they’ve been together 7 years! 

Rachael and Patrick chose to do their engagement session at Disney World because they think its the most magical place on Earth! In fact, Patrick proposed there! Can you imagine? So romantic! Rachael has fond memories of going to Disney with her dad!

During the session we hit up all their classic favorites! Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Prince Charming’s Carousel and Cinderella’s Castle all while battling the storms of the quickly approaching hurricane! But the storms made for magical blue clouds and the whole day was amazing! 

Rachel and Patrick, thank you so much for trusting me to take your engagement pictures!  Disney World was just as magical as you described! You two are so much fun and it was lovely getting to know all the people that love you so dearly!  I can’t wait for your wedding!

Tess and Matt | Henderson KY Engagement Session

Tess says Matt is the best thing that ever happened to her, and it's impossible to miss how much Matt adores and values Tess. He looks at his blue-eyed girl like he won the lottery in the love department!

We photographed their engagement session at Tess' parents' house. I loved talking with them as they walked through the vineyards; it was great hearing about their love story. It was the perfect setting for their gorgeous engagement session. 

There's nothing quite as romantic as selfless love, the kind that withstands hard things and quiet days. The kind that loves the pieces of you that the world doesn't applaud. It's easy to see that these two love each other deeply. 

Tess and Matt, thank you for trusting me to document this part of your story together, and congratulations on your engagement!! Wishing you all the best as you plan your wedding!

Welcome to the World Ava Jo | Evansville Birth Photographer

When Lacey and Jon asked me to photograph the birth of their daughter, Ava Jo, I was over the moon! 

While I don't photograph many births, this one was extra special because Lacey is my cousin. I've had the privilege of watching her grow into an amazing woman. I photographed her and Jon's engagement, wedding, maternity and now this. I can't wait to watch this sweet girl grow. I know Lacey is going to be a wonderful, fun mom.

The day of the birth, I arrived when Lacey was almost 9cm dilated. She pushed for nearly two hours before Ava made her grand entrance, meeting the world at 5:04pm. As soon as she landed on Lacey's chest she burst into tears! Ava was wished for, dreamed of and loved long before she arrived.  Lacey and Jon have been anxiously waiting for their rainbow baby and she's perfect! And the whole family is smitten with the newest little Steinkamp!  

Congratulations Lacey and Jon on your new arrival, I adore her! You guys are amazing parents already!

Claudia | Chicago Senior Session

For Claudia's second round of senior pictures we celebrated her adventurous side with a session in Chicago, Illinois. This babe is bright, bubbly, gracious and stylish! A shining light to those who know her!  

Sarah, Claudia's mom, has been taking Claudia with her on all kinds of trips since Claudia was young, striving to give her new experiences and grow her world. Forever echoing that she can grow up to be whatever she dreams and life is all kinds of fun! Chicago is one of their staple trips, within driving distance with all kinds of great shopping, so it was the perfect place for the occasion and a way to make her senior picture experience extra special!

We photographed all around the city, starting on Michigan Avenue, hitting up the Chicago Theatre and ending in Lincoln Park with amazing skyline shots! 

Claudia, Thank you so much for choosing me the photograph your senior pictures. I think you're a really cool babe, with amazing ambition!  Looking forward to seeing all the things you offer the world! I know it's going to be beautiful.

Claudia Senior Session | Evansville Indiana Photography

Claudia is a senior at Mt. Carmel High School.  She loves to travel; just days before these pictures were taken she was in St. Thomas exploring the islands with her mom, Sarah. I was so jealous of her gorgeous sun kissed glow! For this portion on her senior pictures, Claudia went with an adorable boho vibe, and I'm loving the colors and all the hats! But seriously, this babe makes hats look so perfect, and be sure to check out all her accessories! I die! 

We shot all around Mt. Carmel; she's a diverse babe but we wanted to make sure to pay tribute to the place that raised her! We celebrated those beautiful brick streets, Friday night football games, and hometown vibes. But next weekend we're headed to Chicago to celebrate her adventurous side, and I couldn't be more excited! 

Claudia and Sarah, thank you so much for choosing me to document this fun season in Claudia's life! I'm SO excited for her next session in Chicago! Next weekend is going to be so much fun!

Katy and Hubert Family Session | Evansville Indiana Photography

Katy and Hubert own Farmer and Frenchman, an incredible winery in Henderson, Kentucky. They've passionately and proudly created not only a destination restaurant and winery, but an outstanding wedding venue as well. I always love working with them!

When Katy was pregnant with Ayla, she called to book family pictures for her soon-to-be family of four. We waited until Miss Ayla was a little older to get those super cute baby smiles and the session turned out perfect! To me, the key to family pictures is keeping everyone engaged. So we planned a picnic in the vineyards.

As Hubert and Katy walked hand in hand around the property, I noticed instantly how ardently they love one another. Hubert whispered sweet words of encouragement, and joy rolled out of Katy in giggles. What an amazing example for their kids to see as they grow.

Katy, Hubert, Luca, and Ayla: thank you so much for inviting me into your home and letting me photograph your family! The intimate love your family shares is a joy to witness.

Watching Katy and Hubert talk to Luca about how they make the wine and when it's the best time to harvest the grapes was so precious. Luca loves listening to stories. His normal whirlwind self gets very quiet and soaks up everything. I love how at this age he's filled with deep wonder and curiosity!

Stephen and Rianna Engagement | Evansville Indiana Photography

I met Rianna and Stephen in downtown Newburgh, Indiana for their engagement session. They walked hand in hand with their sweet pup and danced in the light, and it was easy to see just how in love they are!  It was a rare day for August in Indiana; there was a lovely breeze and the light was total perfection as it peeked in and out of the clouds.

Can we take a quick second to talk about Rianna's ring?! It's to die for! The artful design, vintage inspiration, and double halo around the pear has me gushing! Stephen did an amazing job working with a local jeweler to have it designed into absolute perfection! Custom rings are my favorite and I love hearing all about how they come together! 

Rianna and Stephen, we're wishing you all the best as you begin the wedding planning process! Cherish the sweet season of anticipation of being engaged; it's such a fun part of the process. It was a pleasure to photograph this exciting time in your life!

Eric and Nicole: Positano, Italy | Positano, Italy Photographer

Eric and Nicole are a perfect pair. They live in Chicago and love to travel. This is the second time they've been to Europe together! Europe in May is kind of their thing and this time they traveled to Rome and the Almafi Coast. I met up with them in Positano which is nestled on west part of the Almafi Coast. Looking up from the black sand beach, the houses cascade up - looking like a vivid watercolor painting, so romantic. 

Positano is the kind of place that tugs at your heart and leaves you missing it the moment you leave. But you know what even more lovely than Positano itself? Running into great friends while you're there! When Eric and Nicole told Dakota and I about their trip I remember thinking how amazing it sounded! I had no idea I'd be there with my friend Alissa at the same time!

Once I found out our trips would overlap, we decided to meet up for a quick dinner and mini photoshoot. After our shoot we had dinner at Rada, which was exceptional. The restaurant is built into the cliff, overlooking the ocean. On this particular night the waves were incredibly large and we watched them crash into the rocks throughout dinner.  After, we were quickly seated and... spoiled (They put our purses on a tufted foot stool so they wouldn't touch the ground, #princesstreatmeant  dinner started with surprise amuse-bouche and ended with a series of tiny desserts. It was the perfect meal for the perfect surprise photoshoot! 

Eric and Nicole, it was so much fun seeing you in Italy! Thanks for letting me sneak in a photoshoot during your vacation! Dakota and I can't wait to celebrate with you in St. Thomas in December!

Ashton and Justin: Newburgh Engagement | Evansville Indiana Wedding Photographer

I shot Ashton and Justin's engagement photos along the Newburgh riverfront, and as they strolled along the pathways downtown with their two pups, Justin looked affectionately at Ashton with so much adoration in his eyes.

Justin proposed to Ashton on the beach in Hilton Head, South Carolina, and it rained right during the proposal so when it started to drizzle during their engagement session, they both knew it was meant to be! As sunset was quickly approaching, the golden rays of light shined through the light sprinkle of rain that was delightfully similar to the day they got engaged. I'm thrilled to share the outcome: these dreamy romantic images!

Ashton and Justin, photographing your engagement session was an honor. Your devotion to each other and your excitement to build a life with each other is absolutely captivating. I wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and puppies.
