Behind the scenes of my session days

There is nothing like a session day. My adrenaline is running. I am fully energized. It’s go time. I could tell you all about it, but I would much rather show you. So, take a peek into the behind the scenes life of my photography business during a session.

Check out some behind the scenes during Lauren & Bailey’s session.

Bloomington, IN Engagement Photo Session - Sam & Cam

This session was a little extra special for me because I got to photography my cousin, Samantha, and her fiancé, Camden.

I have known Samantha my whole life and I am so thankful she allowed me to photograph a very special moment for her. Sam & Cam are going to separate universities this fall and she wanted to have this special memory that she could hang up all over her room.

Their session was held in Sam’s upcoming new town of Bloomington, Indiana as we went all around Indiana University’s campus and surrounding areas. There were a few times I am pretty sure they thought I was crazy with some of the prompts I gave them, but they embraced it whole heartedly, mosquito bites and all.

Thank you both for giving me this special opportunity to photograph these memories for you!

Summer Portrait Session in Bloomington, Indiana - Lauren & Bailey

Lauren & Bailey are two people that I am so thankful to be around. Their upbeat personalities make my job so much fun and enjoyable. Any idea that I have they are all in for it. They are naturals at the portrait game and love incorporating their personalities into the photographs. Their summer collection was no different from the spring, except for that they now know what to expect from me and my ideas. The green house photos are awesome, but poor Lauren got the heat from the one of the rooms that the temperature was warmer than expected. She handled it like a champ though. Enjoy their summer session!

Can’t wait to see you in the fall!

Spring Portrait Session in Bloomington, Indiana - Lauren & Bailey

Last year I decided I wanted to have a few people be my “go-to’s” when it came to portrait work. I want photos of someone in the spring? They would be there. I need someone to play with my dog so I can have photos or practice with a crazy animal running around? They would be up to it. I just wanted to be able to have some “on call” people who would be down for just about anything. One of the first people that came to mind was my cousin, Lauren.

Lauren is a high school student at my alma mater, Center Grove High School in Greenwood, IN. She is a very personable and fun girl to be around. She loves makeup and cheer and wants to become a chiropractor. When I asked Lauren to help me out, she immediately said yes. I told her any friends she could bring would be fabulous. That is where Bailey comes in.

Bailey came to me a high school senior (now graduated) and has such a personality. She loves to laugh and it makes the BEST candid photos. I am so happy that Lauren introduced me to her because she is up for anything I ask her to do.

I have decided to do seasonal photos with both of them as they work extremely well together. Spring was the first one that we embarked on as I wanted to test a lot of new photography ideas out and practice more with my craft. Plus, it was finally getting nice out. Here are just a few of my favorites from their session!
