Multi-Season Session

In Indiana, it’s really tough to decide what season to do your senior pictures.  So, if you just cannot pick one, you will LOVE our new Multi-Season Sessions! Pick your two most favorite seasons (summer & winter, fall & spring, summer & fall…whatever floats your boat) and you get to do two different 45 minute sessions in both of those seasons. 🙂  It’s double the fun and you’ll get double the looks! ❤  Book now!

April 11, 2015 is Celebration of Smiles Day

Your new headshot can help me change a child’s life! THIS SATURDAY.  Make a donation = get a new headshot! Join me this Saturday for a 10 minute mini-session at Lakeside Rose Garden (it’s going to be 61 degrees and sunny!).  Appointments are available 9-11am.  Spots are filling up! Claim your exact appointment time at https://shadowlandsphotography.wufoo.com/forms/celebration-of-smiles-day/ 

During this special one day event, when you give a minimum donation of $24 for Operation Smile, you will receive a gift of a 10 minute mini-session and a professional quality headshot as a 5″x7″ print.

100% of each donation will go to support the work of the Operation Smile (which provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the world). Because the medical and support staff of Operation Smile volunteer their services, it costs as little as $240 to perform a simple cleft lip surgery.  To learn more about Operation Smile, visit https://www.youtube.com/user/CreateSmiles  

For every 10 sessions that done on Celebration of Smiles Day, one precious child will receive the life-changing gift of surgery. The more you donate, the more children’s lives we will be able to change together!

Class of 2015 High School Senior: Shealee

Shealee (or Shea to those who know her well) is a senior at Homestead High School.  She is fun, laid back and genuine (AND genuinely BEAUTIFUL – her blue eyes are like a gentle sea – SO much fun to capture).

Here are some sneak peeks of a few of my favorite images from her high school senior portrait session:

Family of Four: Samantha + Matt

I am completely obsessed with vibrant, bright colors.  And I’m so thankful that Samantha and Matt trust me to pick out some really fun and colorful places to shoot.  🙂  Little man kept me on my toes – he was one the MOVE!  I loved the challenge and his expressions are priceless!

Building Bridges

I know, I know…it’s been FOREVER since I have blogged.  The time has come!  🙂

2014 is off and running to a vigorous start!  There are SO many exciting things that are going on around here!  I feel like I’m 21 again…giving birth to artistic “babies” I’ve been carrying inside for months (okay, years).  Where should I begin??  What do I share first?

Well, first of all…in addition to my “normal” portrait & wedding photography business, I have multiple personal photography projects that I’m pursuing, planning & shooting right now.  I have to keep my lips sealed though for now, however, as not to spoil the surprise.  In the weeks coming, I’ll leak more and more details. 🙂

Secondly, I have been teaching photography workshops around the Fort Wayne community more and more every year.  And, this winter and spring, I have had the opportunity to teach and inspire budding middle school artists during an aftercare fine arts program at Holy Cross Lutheran School (if you have children in preschool, elementary school or middle school, seriously check this place out…they are a vibrant community).



Our themed photography project last week (see the image immediately above) was to photograph the concept “Building Bridges”  So, we placed some of my Holy Cross aftercare photography students (future Concordia Lutheran High School Cadets) on bridges.  Lutheran preschools and elementary schools around the city are doing likewise (for CLHS to put on display as part of their décor at the 2014 Cadets in Cadence Auction). 

I love seeing the middle schoolers’ minds explore different topics…and learn how to transpose concepts into photographic images.  It takes patience, but it is moving and encouraging when you see youth blossom into their potential to be powerful, creative, energetic, thoughtful and productive for Good.  I am thankful for the chance to push them toward a path on which they realize that they can not only call attention to things around them…but can influence the things in their world.
