It’s always a beautiful day when you’re photographing a gorgeous celebrity couple like Natalie Pack and Aaron O’Connell in an adorable decorated space like @ripplebnb in Broad Ripple!!!  These two soon to be married love birds are not only beautiful in photos, but are so talented and incredibly sweet!!!

Natalie has Modeled for Guess, was Miss California 2012, and was on America’s Next Top Model.  Natalie has a following of 156K on Instagram where you check her out at @nataliepack.  Aaron is an Actor and is best known for his portrayal of  Wyatt Cryer on Tyler Perry’s The Haves and The Have Nots.  Aaron also plays guitar and is a licensed Pilot and volunteers to help fly and relocate dogs from populated California shelters to other nearby shelters that have more space.  The two met at a charity event to help people in other countries get clean water.  Aaron has a mere 55K followers on IG and you can follow him at @aaronoconnell.  But the one who truly stole my heart was their beloved Vizsla, Fig!!!!!  Fig has his own IG account where you can see his day to day cuteness!  Be sure to follow this good looking fella at @figthewiggler on IG!

Fairy Tale Bridal Shoot

I had so much fun with this shoot!  My Gorgeous Model, Kirsten Owens, looked stunning in this breathtaking gown by Sareh Nouri!  Everything about this dress screams romance!  What better than a magical fairy-tale setting to show off the drama of this dress!  This story is about a regular girl with extraordinary beauty who gets the opportunity to dress like a princess!  Sure, she gets lost and wanders into town, but she’ll find her way back home.

Wesley’s Cake Smash

This handsome boy is one!  I photographed his Mom and Dad’s Baby Bump Session, so when I got the call to photograph this adorable little fellow, I could hardly wait!  Wesley is such a sweet boy!  He loves to laugh and the cake smash was a huge hit with him and very entertaining for me, his mom, sister, and grandma!  We all had the best time!!!

I hope you enjoy the photos from Wesley’s adorable cake smash!  Happy 1st Birthday Wesley!

 

 

Yumi + Rodrigo

These two lovebirds were fantastic to work with!  So in love!!!  They shared their beautiful love story with me.  Yumi came here as a foreign exchange student and they met at church… Guy meets girl.  Guy likes girl, but girl takes a while to like guy.  Guy gives up. Then one day at church camp he wakes up to a beautiful sunrise and glances over to see an angel with glistening sunshine lighting her up while she was making breakfast…That was Yumi of course.  He’s got to give it one more try!  There you go… the beginning of a beautiful love story!

I Love these two!!!  They are so cute together and complement each other so well.  Chris called me up and asked if I would like to photograph his proposal to Maria!  ABSOLUTELY!!!!  I was so excited for them!!! Anyway she said YES!!!  Congratulations!

He was showing her his countdown post on Facebook.  He shared it with all their friends 3 hours before Popping the Question!  I’m so glad she said YES!!!

 

 

 

I had the best time photographing these two love birds for their Baby Bump Session!  Jasmine and John are so easy to be around and she reminded me a lot of my sister, who also has a very sweet spirit!  It was Jasmine’s Birthday so I felt very privileged that she chose to spend her Birthday with me!!!  They have a beautiful love story and we celebrated the future arrival of their little one!

Maria

What a privilege to photograph Maria.  We were both in Sync immediately with the concept of an Ethereal Look with a Romantic Woodsy Theme.  What a timeless beauty!  She could have leaped out of an Old Master’s Painting.  Such a classy lady and a lot of fun!  She is a Yoga Instructor and is in the forefront of instructing a hybrid of Yoga and Gymnastics.  You can find her on Instagram @mariabroaddus.
