Baby Ryne

I recently had the pleasure of photographing beautiful Baby Ryne. We had a great time hanging out with Ryne and his mom and dad at their home.

Ryne was just finishing up a nap when we got there, and was alert and active for us when he woke up. He's got the brightest little eyes. I love how they light up when the sunlight hits them just right.

It wasn't long before Ryne realized he was hungry...

Mommy came to the rescue with a bottle, and then we were good to go!

Little tootsies always bring a smile!

I absolutely LOVE the hair!

We finished up outside and got some great pictures of Ryne and his custom-made baby blanket.

Ryne, it was a pleasure to take your pictures. You've got a great mommy and daddy too!

Owen and Amanda

We had a great time shooting Owen and Amanda's wedding day. It was our first opportunity to photograph a wedding in Indianapolis. It was a beautiful warm, partly cloudy day. Owen and Amanda were married at the beautiful St. John the Evangelist Catholic church. Here are a few of my favorite shots from their day.

The very lovely Amanda...

A quick call to room service...

Owen, the man of the hour.

I love the ceiling in this church. The whole sanctuary is filled with beautiful woodwork and paintings.

Owen and Amanda had a traditional wedding ceremony. The altar area certainly made for some very beautiful and impressive photos. You can see that the ceiling is very, very tall!

After Owen and Amanda exited the sanctuary they slipped behind a folding partition and spent a quiet moment with each other. The guests walked past without knowing they were behind the wall. It was the perfect hide-away.

After the ceremony we got to spend some time taking some nice portraits.

At the reception, Owen and Amanda entertained their guests with their first dance. They took ballroom dancing lessons and did wonderfully!

Owen is an accomplished pianist, and played a beautiful number for his new bride.

Amanda closed her eyes and soaked in every last note that Owen played.

An applause for her man was certainly in order!

Thank you Owen and Amanda for allow us to be a part of your special day. We had a wonderful time with you, your family, and guests! Congratulations to the both of you!

Baby Julian

My wife and I traveled to Evansville recently to visit my brother and his wife and my new nephew, Julian. He's a beautiful little guy! My son Aaron held him on his lap, which was a really neat experience for him. Congratulations John and Tiffany!

This is baby Julian. He's one cool dude!

If this doesn't make you want to yawn, I don't know what will.

I love the look on his face.

Julian's nursery is decked out in "Monkey" theme. Can you spot the Julian monkey in this picture?


A tender moment with mommy.

Just chillaxin'...
