Brandon, Cat & Fun Outdoor Fall Family Portraits

You just can’t beat the weather this fall in Indiana.  You’ll hear NO complaints from me!  Crisp, bright colored trees, warm air and happiness all around.

Last time I did portraits of this amazingly cute family, it was before the addition of their newest member.  What a handsome guy!!!!

Boys Bein’ Boys

Who’d have thought that days before Thanksgiving we’d be outside in the warm sunshine without coats on for this wonderful fall photo shoot of Hayden, Jackson and Robert!

John and Mary’s Crew

What do you get when you combine the great outdoors with 5 busy kids and a camera? Lots and lots of giggles!!!!!

For these portraits of John and Mary’s kids, we ended up only venturing as far as their backyard because the kids were in such great and playful moods in their natural environment.  Hey – when the kids are content, so is the photographer!  ; )

Sarah and Family

Seriously, we could not have asked for a more ideal autumn day for Sarah and her gorgeous family of five’s outdoor Family Portrait Session.  We were on a mission to find a glorious red barn and we found just the perfect one!  Sarah and her hubby have their hands very full with three little ones and yet the session breezed by with miles and miles of smiles!

Thank you for participating in National Family Portrait Month to benefit Operation Smile!

Thank you Michael and Amanda for being Family Portrait Month Participants!


Our PERFECT fall weather outdoor Family Portrait Session took place at one of my most favorite secret nooks in Fort Wayne.  The trees were screaming with color!  We had SO much fun just being silly and enjoying the outdoor beauty…capturing the playfulness and splendor of family life and childhood.

 
 


Thank you Michael and Amanda SO much for participating in National Family Portrait Month!  In October, Shadowands Photography donated $25 from EACH family portrait session to PPA Charities to benefit Operation Smile.

And, THANK YOU to ALL of my Family Portrait Month participants in FORT WAYNE.  Because of YOU, hope is being brought to families of children locally and around the world who suffer from cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities.

Mary & Jeremy’s Engagement Portrait Session in Indianpolis, Indiana

Mary + Jeremy = TRUE LOVE

We started out at the gorgeous Broad Ripple Park which borders the White River.  The crisp fall air and lush autumn leaves were bursting with vibrancy and energy!  A perfectly romantic setting for Mary and Jeremy’s outdoor engagement pictures.

 

Next we made our way to the very cool walking trails by the White River.

To wrap up the portrait session, we headed over to the fabulous Arts Park at the Indianapolis Art Center where Jeremy proposed to Mary.


I can’t wait to photograph your wedding in December!  It was a pleasure spending the afternoon with you!!!
