Mother Nature is definitely showing us her beautiful colors this fall. And it was a perfect day to photograph this gorgeous, active, and fun family. They are actually one of the first families I met when I moved to Angola, Indiana 8 years ago and it’s great to reconnect with them.
Confident, smart, muscular, driven, gorgeous…I could go on describing these girls but I think you get the idea. We had some fun in the studio creating some artistic images that highlight their athletic strengths. And no, there’s no magic photo-shopping here…just portraits that were lit correctly..and years of hard training in the gym doesn’t hurt either.
Then we headed outdoors to enjoy the beautiful fall colors.
What do you do when one college student is home from Purdue and the other kiddo is soon to be off to serve in the military? You schedule for a family photo of course! I was truly honored to be the one to photograph this amazing family. Besides the fact that they are all sweet, loving, and super cool people…the camera just loves them! Aren’t they gorgeous!
I know how challenging it is to schedule, prepare for and plan your family photos! Just the thought of getting multiple kiddos dressed, hair brushed, and happy faces on is enough to tire anyone out. But when you put the effort in and hire a profession to take care of the rest, the result will be portraits that are cherished for a lifetime.
And this family is the perfect example. We have talked about making these photos happen for over a year. Sports, school, and schedules with six people made it challenging but I’m so glad we finally made it happen. Such a gorgeous, sweet, and fun family!
Check back here later this week for a few more sneak peeks.
I had the honor of recently photographing my long time clients turned friends. We started the session with hugs all around and ended sharing stories and a meal around the dinner table. I have to say this was our most fun and relaxed session in the nine years I’ve know them.
And of course it’s fun when I have this cutie in front of my camera!
Such a sweet and gorgeous family!
Sharing a little chicken love.
And then there’s the look back in time beginning in May of 2007 when this little guy was fresh from the hospital and under 5lbs. if I remember correctly.
At 6 months he was trying to eat my props…
All smiles and wiggles at one year old.
And super stylish on one of his trips down to Angola, Indiana
It has definitely been a wonderful trip down memory lane. I can’t wait to see what the next nine years bring! Hugs and Kisses
It’s always an honor to be selected to photograph a family. The family portrait is something that will be displayed in your home for many years, often serving as a focal point of the main living area and eventually becoming an heirloom for future generations.
This family has a picture perfect property with a log cabin, split rail fence, and natural trails. They also coordinated their clothing and the results are stunning!
What’s on your wall?
Here’s a little family photo flashback to 2014!
Fall is in the air and it’s definitely time to book your high school senior photos. Our schedule is filling up quickly with only a few more weekend spots available for 2016.
This Angola High School senior is absolutely stunning, super sweet, has a wonderful family…and oh, yeah, she was just crowned Homecoming Queen this weekend! Yep, I’m a lucky photographer to have such amazing kids in front of my camera.
Isn’t she STUNNING! Wow. The camera loves her…and I don’t think she had a stitch of makeup on. This was such a fun and easy senior session in the Tonya Marie Photography outdoor studio. Finnegan the puppy even got to join in the fun. Can you say adorable! This 2017 senior is going places! Literally.
