These two live in a small town in Indiana and wanted their photos to reflect that.  It was SO fun to explore the area and find some really amazing locations.










Nicole… your eyes are BEAUTIFUL!






 They actually live on a lake… this is their dock. 🙂  Behind them you'll see some construction style barriers…. that's because the Indiana flood of 08 nearly destroyed that bridge.






Had a little fun with the processing of this one…




























 Hey, it's Indiana… and what better to represent Indiana?! CORN!  I've been DYING to do a photo shoot amongst corn… yes yes yes, I would say that Indiana is really beginning to take me over.  (I'm from Kansas City, Mo)










Okay, yes… I have more than one favorite. Leave me alone ❗






 Back for more corn… I couldn't resist. 😀




HOPE, Ind.  EVERY TIME we drive through a small town we feel so incredibly inspired by the surroundings… old fences, well used farm equipment, run down barns, lots and lots of corn, and plenty of rustic goodness.

I knew that THAT was exactly the kind of place that Nicole and Brent lived and we couldn't wait to head there and attack them with our 5Ds.  Okay… that's kind of extreme… but whatever… 

These two have been married for a couple of years and had never had an engagement session… After Nicole's friend Jacquie and her husband Abe had photos done by us last year… the immediately signed up. 🙂 I love that more and more couples are requesting photo sessions after they've been married… Sometimes I think that people only think that they can have family photos done if they have kids… no no no… not the case 🙂  So, JUST DO IT!

Nicole and Brent… thanks SO much for introducing us to Hope, Indiana 🙂
