I don’t know how many other Indianapolis family photographers wear as many hats as I do, but I have a large collection that is continuously growing. Moving back to the midwest was one of the most perfectly-timed life events of my years thus far. Moving back meant I got to regularly swap my Indy hat for my Michigan one, shooting my original clients more regularly, being able to take on new clients as long-time friends began to grow their families, and of course it meant having more friend and family time every year instead of cramming it all into a quick Christmas holiday. It’s been such a beautiful, beautiful thing to be able to reconnect with all these people, spend more time with family, and be able to swing up into the area so many times a year. I feel spoiled and I am not for one second taking any of it for granted.
I shared this on Facebook with the first sneak peek of this adorable family, but Amanda and I met in the 8th grade after both moving into the area from out of state. It was easy to connect and we instantly formed an inseparable bond. We were attached at the hip, so much so that in high school the counselors who monitored the halls during passing time would be concerned if they saw one of us without the other. I have notebooks upon notebooks that we shared instead of passing notes – they’re basically novels of our adolescent-minded-lives at that point. We have a long-standing history together and even as we parted ways for a bit in our early-adult years, we reconnected quickly and I cannot even begin to put into words how full my heart is seeing this lady become a momma and grow her life into this little family. I’m literally bursting at the seams.
To the best friend of my teenage years, I love you dearly and think the world of you. I am so honored to have had you in front of my camera and wish you nothing but years and years of Carpe Diems. <3 See you at Christmas! XO
