Trevor and I are so excited to announce the birth of our second baby boy. Forrest Allen Lang was born on December 8, 2023. We were at the hospital for a routine non-stress test, which I had been doing for a few months because of my gestational diabetes. I knew we would most likely wind up staying in the hospital because I had been having consistent contractions for a few days leading up to this, so Trevor and I packed our bags just in case. As the contractions progressed, the doctor determined we couldn’t leave, and Mr. Forrest was born that evening via planned c-section.

Judith & Diego have known each other since a young age because they grew up from nearby towns in Mexico. When they were both in High School, Diego became good friends with Judith’s brother. When he was around, Diego would try to talk to Judith but she didn’t think it was anything serious. He was persistent though and started to ask her out on dates. Judith told us, “Finally I went out with him in my senior year of high school. And after like 2 years of him trying to convince me, we started dating.” And now, they’re getting married!!

Kari and Zach expressed from the beginning how excited they were to take photos on their farm with tractors. Their relationship started at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky, so they couldn’t imagine photos without their farm being the setting. Whenever we get a chance to try incorporating personal things that are special to our couples into their sessions we are totally down.

Why do photographers love a good sunrise or sunset moment? There are many reasons including lighting, stylistic options, and evenness of tones. Shadows are often better during a sunrise or sunset and placement of subjects (aka you, the client) can create glowing interest with rays of sunbeams in the background. In this post we’ll break down the difference between a sunrise and sunset session and why you should care.

Lyndsey & Jacob had a timeless winter wedding at Gathering Acres Event Center in Lafayette, Indiana. Given the winter storm that happened the day before, the weather cooperated beautifully enough for us to even get some photos outside. After getting ready in their private on-site bridal suits with jean jackets and cowboy boots, Lyndsey & Jacob saw each other for the first time as she approached him down the aisle. As the sun began to set, they continued to celebrated their marriage by partying indoors, eating good food, cutting their cake, and dancing the night away as husband and wife.

Leland has been coming back to our studio year after year for all of his birthday pictures. This year he turned 3 years old!! Boy, how does time fly? This little ball of energy was so fun to have over again, and we love watching him grow. We’ve documented his 6 month photos for him with his family, his 9 month photos in the studio during Christmas time, his one year old cake smash session that was themed around fishing, his second birthday with a “two the moon” theme, and now this session where we commemorated him turning THREE.

This year was honestly our most fun year ever. It’s crazy how much we all grow year after year, but this was the year we felt like it was less about growing and more about enjoying. We truly loved every single wedding, session, milestone, etc., that we got to be a part of. As our business continues to help families and couples capture life’s important milestones with photos and videos we are continually reminded of why we do what we do. We love that we can be a part of memorializing each of our clients’ special days, but also that we can do this together as a family too. This is our first full season with a little one (now a toddler) at our side, and while the learning curve was steap, we were constantly made aware of our reason behind doing all of this. This blog post is dedicated to all of you who helped support our little growing family in 2022 and continued to give us hope for achieving our dreams.

This is why we love having our studio on this amazing property–we’ve got plenty of open landscape and even access to the river!

Also, having an engagement session prior to the big day makes your wedding day flow easier and gives you a preview of what to expect from us on your wedding day. Plus you get some stunning images that celebrate your time as an engaged couple.

Happy birthday to this cute 1 year old!! Rhett turned ONE a week after these photos were taken, and we were so happy to have him in the studio to celebrate with pictures and a cupcake. You may notice that we like to keep our sessions as clean and minimal as possible, and we lean towards using our white backdrop almost every time we’re in the studio. This is because we believe that your photos should be captured authentically, with you and your little ones as the center-piece. But most importantly, we believe that your photos should be timeless and using clean and minimal aesthetics does just that.

We’ve all been tested over and over again these last couple of years. It’s been especially difficult to grow a business, but thanks to all of our amazing clients we’ve been successful even with the struggles of the world making each accomplishment even more rewarding. In last year’s recap we said something that I want to reiterate again this year as it still rings true–“We want to remind you of the growth we have all made even during these hard times—because we know we have all learned so much, changed so much, and accomplished more than we could have imagined in this past year.” This blog post is dedicated to all of you who helped support us in 2021 and continued to give us hope for achieving our dreams.

Often people shy away from winter photos (unless there’s snow on the ground), but this year we have been lucky because the beginning of the season weather has been quite mild. We were able to get together with this big bunch, the Smith family, for family photos. They were such a fun, loving, and care free group which made this winter sunset session a breeze.

We love all of our couples, but we especially love when we get to work with them over and over again. We’ve been able to do family photos, engagement photos, wedding photos, and more for these two!! Before the new year, we got together again with Mandy and Coty Singleton for their complimentary anniversary session to celebrate one year of marriage!

Little Halle came by the studio for some absolutely adorable 1yo pictures. Of course she came sporting her favorite bell bottom pants and tons of pink & cow print. She showed us how she could stand and even let me play with her little stuffed cow.

truly appears that they have each found their soul mate. Riley specifically said, “We are old souls [that] enjoy the outdoors and hanging out with our cute pup, Ava.” We did their engagement photos at the Tippecanoe River State Park in Winamac, Indiana when all of the fall leaves had nearly fallen to the ground. They also brought along their pup for precious pictures with her too.
