So here's the story. My good friend Lindsay texted me last fall asking if I wanted to take a spontaneous adventure with her (how could the answer not be yes?!) She had already planned a booked a trip to New Orleans and asked if I wanted to come along and take pictures! (Again, always YES!) So 2 weeks later we were boarding the plane for our trip and I was SO excited! The only southern place I've been to is Florida which totally doesn't count, and I couldn't wait to see Spanish moss in person! We made several stops, did a lot of driving, and a lot of eating and I loved every minute! There are too many favorites to choose from, but our time at Oak Alley Plantation was the top of the charts for me. This gorgeous venue has a pathway lined with towering, historic oak trees and it truly takes your breath away! The sun poured through the Spanish moss and I couldn't help but sing "Dreams do come true in New Orleans!" (Thanks to Princess Tiana) Can't wait to take Tim back for a visit sometime soon!
After sharing some not-so-pretty images from behind the scenes, I'm excited to be sharing some of my favorite portraits of the year! These kinds of posts take hours to cull through, but in doing so it gave me a lot of time to reflect on what has been my favorite year of business so far. My portrait sessions took me from the Eiffel Tower at sunrise to high tea at Downton Abbey in England, from the rainy coast of Seattle to the warm sunshine of New Orleans, from the happiest place on earth (Disney of course!!) to lush gardens and architecture in our nation's capitol, and of course plenty of sessions in Ohio and Indianapolis as always! I'm so thankful for my clients - their trust and excitement, and their love of travel and adventure that brought me all over the world this year! I hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my favorite portrait sessions of 2016!
