You believe in your story. I surrender to it. Capture it. And hand it back to you in a way you can remember forever.

You're about to embark on the most wonderful of adventures. Because you're here that tells me you value epic, mind-blowing photography. Well done!

I'm fortunate, and sometimes I have to pinch myself when I think about how much I love what I do. I illustrate every story you trust me with.

Incredible photographs result from a trusted relationship between us. This comes from a friendship, and from time invested in getting to know you, and why you have chosen the different elements that will make up your wedding day. Think of me as a visual biographer of sorts, a narrator, telling your story through the images of your day.

I want you to be blown away by how beautiful you really are, by how beautiful I see you to be.

Lets get started!

+ you are beautiful

Creative Senior Picture Photographer, Richmond, IN Professional Portrait Photographer:: Holly

She’s ready to make her mark in the world. Ready to take on the next adventure life has to give her. Meet Holly. She’s got an infectious smile and a gleam in her eye.


_M6C4525T_stompAbove: No photoshop tricks. Yep those are really the tree blossoms showering down around her. We timed it just right!


_M6C4565T_stompShe recently graduated from high school and has been spending her summer preparing for the musical production of “Little Mermaid” at the Richmond Civic Theatre. Who’s she playing? None other than Ariel. And just like Ariel, Holly will soon be exploring new worlds. What’s really cool is Holly’s boyfriend is playing Prince Eric along side her. Not only in the theatre, he was right there for her during her senior photos, carry extra clothing changes, props, making her smile, and sharing in the experience. (see end of post)

_M6C4550T_stompA senior session should always reflect who you are, and Holly did a great job of incorporating elements that highlight her personality. She loves to read and picked out a few of her favorite books to incorporate into some of the images.




_M6C4623T_stompAnother important element of incorporating her personality into the shoot was choosing a location special to her. She choose to stay on her family’s property where we had access to a lot of different niches to shoot in. The creek is a special place to her so we headed there for some shots.






_M6C4785T_stompNew worlds await Holly and I know she’s going to be great at whatever she chooses or wherever she goes.


_M6C4768T_stompIf you have a chance, catch Holly this week-end at the Richmond Civic Theatre for the final performances of “Disney’s The Little Mermaid.”



P.S. We had to get a shot with “Prince Eric” just for fun!
