FINALLY… Addison’s BIG DEBUT on the bloggg! 🙂
Addison’s parents love her so much…
see? I just love how sweetly she’s looking at me. 🙂 …probably because I AM sweet, duhtown.
When she gets married, this photo will play in her slideshow… In about 25 years, I’ll prove it (because I’ll be there coming out of wedding photography retirement just for her)… 😉
The light was magical 🙂 OHHHH yes, I said MAGICAL!!!!
AND THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is my FAAAAAAAVORITE image that I’ve taken in months. ❗ I wish we had video of this moment 🙂 Andrea was trying to lift Addison up and she kept throwing her head back to enjoy the rays. She was just so incredibly happy. 🙂 I’m doing this little story zero justice, it was awesome… just believe me, k? By the way, Mikey’s favorite too ❓
…once a graphic designer, always a graphic designer 😉
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. I don’t know what to say about these two that hasn’t already been said. 🙂 After all, they’re sort of blog regulars. 😀 Click here to see: an engagement photo, a wedding photo, and a maternity photo 🙂
We all moved to Indianapolis from Fort Wayne at the same time. So we sort of knew no one here…. well, except each other. Over the past few years, these guys have become some of our best friends… They would do anything for us… as we would for them.
We love that we get to watch Addison grow up. No worries, as long as we’re watchin’… you’re watchin’, too! You KNOW her little sweetness is going to be ALL over this blog for years to come.
We love you guys. Just do. 🙂
~bobbi+mike ❗ + ❓
PS. Shameless plug… if you’re looking for an AMAZING graphic designer that specializes in branding/logo development… look no further! EMAIL RYAN RIGHT NOW!!!!!! Okay… shameless plug over.
PPS. Yes yes yes… the blog has bigger images now 🙂 Oh… and I’m sure you noticed the new framing 😀 And keep a look out for the new header images… there are 130 different ones that rotate in on nearly every refresh. Hope you dig it!!!!!
OHHHH the things you’ll do to get a reaction! By the end of the session I was doing some CRAZY stuff. I went to Pilates the next morning and could NOT for the life of me figure out why my neck was so sore… THEN it occurred to me… SUMMERSUALTS!!!! (OH yes… summersaults work like a charm to get the smiles!) My instructor said,”Be sure to tuck your head in the next time!” Could you imagine me preparing my form before I start actin’ all crazy!? HA!
❗ + ❓
YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!! oh, and I like the pictures, too!
absolutely adorable. i want to take pictures like this!
haha! I love your face in the last one!
Bobbi, Oh my, what a precious beautiful baby and the photos are so fantastic. I love the outdoor ones – how precious is she in nature…and the picnic basket – how cute!!!
OMG love your face on the last picture Bobbi ^^
You like taunting me with how inspiring you guys are, don’t you? 🙂
These are SO fantastic! I love the big images and the new banners BTW.. Seein Bobbi rockin the ‘RockNRoll fingers’ (aka devilhorns) on the dance floor made me laugh out loud! Rock on!
Oh Bobbi and Mike… these are some of the most precious new baby photos I’ve ever seen!!!! Thank you for introducing me to Ryan and Andrea because knowing them and their sweetness and that adorable little girl of theirs makes these all the more special.
And Ryan..holla – can’t wait to see you this week and talk shop!!!
PS – Andrea, you are sick with the gorgeousness. Now, go quit that teaching job so you can model for parenting magazines with that beautiful baby girl of yours!
Bobbi!!!!! Mike!!!!! AWESOME as always!!! =) I love the new changes to the blog!!!! I’m gonna click refresh 130 times just to see all the new headers!!!! Love u guys!! =)
Not quite sure what part of my life to respond to these from. So I’ll just spill it all schizo style.
First off, as a father, a husband, a son, an uncle, a brother – a person who treasures his family above any and everything, I’m not sure what better gift you can give someone than capturing such authentic emotion. It is so easy for us all to get enraptured in the minutia of life. Well, seeing your wife and kid smile like this is just about the only damn thing that matters. We are eternally grateful – for all that you guys have done for us.
Professionally, I’ve done my fair share of art directing shoots. I’m an OCD, micromanaging psycho art director to every photographer I have ever worked with. When I let you two loose on my people, nary a visual thought crosses my mind. I have never in my life trusted another artist like that, and suspect I never will.
As a friend, I always find it comforting that for those times that your cameras are out (which is rare believe it or not), part of us just wants to get done, so we can all kick it. B+M are the best photographers I know – but they are even better people.
Many thanks and much love from both of us and our lil love nugget.
Beautiful. What sweet memories for them to have of their little family. =)
Love these photos! What a precious family! I know they must treasure these phtoos, cause I don’t even know them and I will…LOL!
1. these photos are AHHHHHH.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!!
2. i showed them to my hubby, who just so happens to be a truck enthusiast, and the banner-picture was the one of mike taking a photo of a couple with an old dodge ram truck in the middle. it was the first thing he noticed and commented on, since he has a broken-down ’84 diesel dodge ram in the garage. if he can get it running in a month, he’ll probably bring it with him to our session. : )
as cute as they come for sure!
Lovin’ the larger than life photos!!!
Oh Bobbi and Mike, these are UNREAL!!! So precious and just PERFECT!!!!
I love allllllll of this!!! (waving my hand over all the people included in this blog.)
PS If anybody needs a reference on using Ryan for design, just ask me! He’s AWESOME!!!!!
Love the larger images ;o) This session looks awesome…these are the pictures that will be cherished years down the road…love it! All families should have pictures like these made. You guys are so great!
Dear Andrea and Ryan,
Maureen my dear friend has shared pictures of your wedding and now this incredibly beautiful and happy child! Both brought tears to my eyes!
Could they be anymore of a beautiful family?!!! I love the breastfeeding photo. I think that is just awesome you captured that which is such a major part of motherhood! And the black and white “graphic design” shot – awesome!
Oh my. These are just precious….totally priceless. They are so beautiful!!!! THIS IS WHAT IT IS ABOUT….Taking a beautiful fleeting moment in time, and capturing forever. Ahhh, what an amazing job we have, huh? And oh my sweetness….such a darling, darling family.
Ryan and Andrea, you and your sweet little girl make my heart melt. 🙂 Andrea, you are beyond GORGEOUS. I think you so ROCK that you put up a breastfeeding pic. (YOU GO) So glad I got to meet you guys.
P.S. B+M The new blog photos look fab, and the headers are PERFECT!
These are amazing! I’ve been WAITING SO LONG TO SEE THIS BABY!!! (no I’ve never met Andrea or Ryan) but I feel like I know them from this blog! I remember drooling over their engagement photos like 2 years ago! Bobbi and Mike, it’s so much fun to see your couples throughout the years! What a testament to who both of you are as photogs too….once you’ve been photographed by Bobbi and Mike, no one else can compare!
Oh lord, these are amazing. I can’t wait for you to shoot OUR family. 🙂
what a HAPPY baby! I love alllll of them….but mostly the picnic basket baby.
Beautiful, amazing, precious!!!

Oh guys! I am so happy that she let you post the breast feeding one! It’s just a beautiful moment. And I love the ones in the field! So beautiful!!!!!!
Awe…these are so sweet! I LOVE the picnic basket picture!
I love that you used the word Magical, because this session really is magical and no worries on the story not giving the justice to little Addison enjoying the rays in Mike and yours fav…the pictures shows it all!
These are incredibly beautiful, full of emotion, and fun! Perfect!
her eyes are so so pretty!!!
Who’s really having the good time?
I can see why that one is your favorite. I love it. She just looks so happy. these are all great, what a sweet baby!!
Bwahahahahahhah!!! OK, that look on your face in the action photo CRACKS me up. I love it.
These are so beautiful. I love how your family and baby photos are so “Bobbi+Mike.” I adore that.
And that breastfeeding shot? Gorgeous. I want to have such a lovely keepsake of nursing my babies!!
Wow! The image of her breastfeeding is amazing! When you realize you are feeding for the last few times, it’s really hard. I think it’s at that moment when she will most treasure this image.
Oh and Ryan IS fantastic!! I Love Love Love my Plum Daisy!!!
I have been waiting to see the pictures of sweet Addison! She is just precious!
OMG. Ok, seriously, don’t laugh at me Bobbi, I’m all choked up over here. ANDREA AND RYAN HAD A BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is every bit as STUNNING as her mama and looks positively SWEET! As always, your images are art, pure and simple art. Fabulously done. Please, please, please give them a big fat CONGRATULATIONS from one of the Jeshy’s ,lol. I”m so delighted for them I could just pee my pants!!!!! LOL!!!!
Your favorite=my favorite…

The nursing photo is AMAZING. I LOVE IT!!!!
I know you really enjoyed this photo shoot. I have heard you speak of Ryan and Andrea many times. It seems like yesterday when they got married. Addison is just adorable as can be. She has gorgeous eyes. I love the breast feeding picture the best.
Love the nursing photo. One of my faves. I so wanted one done of my children, but it didn’t work out. Def. with the next baby though!
