I am SO excited to share this beautiful maternity session with you today — the excitement and JOY Peter & Bobbi have for their little guy is so so evident in these pictures, and they just make me smile every time I look at them :) After having to reschedule due to weather quite a few times, we finally met up at Edgewater Park last Friday morning to take their photos, and it ended up being PERFECT outside :) 2014.8.1 Peter + Bobby Maternity-1372_BLOGSTOMP.jpg2014.8.1 Peter + Bobby Maternity-1382_BLOGSTOMP.jpgThe lake was SO calm!!!

2014.8.1 Peter + Bobby Maternity-1471_BLOGSTOMP.jpgThen we walked around the park outside the beach for a little bit…right around when it started getting a little toastier! After a week in the 60s/low 70s, the almost-80s were a lot to handle! Ha! Luckily Bobbi is a TROOPER & you can’t even tell :P

#waybackwednesday: Fall 2013 Mini Sessions

Hello hello hello!!!! Today’s #waybackwednesday catch-up post is pretty fitting, seeing as Cleveland is a little confused these days and thinks that it is already FALL!!! Haha! I wanted to share some of my mini-sessions from last October and November. You may recognize some of these kiddos as they are some of my favorite repeat clients & definitely no stranger to the blog/facebook :)

This first session took place at Edgewater Park on quite possibly the windiest and CHILLIEST day of the fall!! (Mother Nature giving us a little preview of the winter I guess..:P ) Poor Lucy was FREEZING and didn’t want to leave mom’s warm hugs, but we still managed to get some cute shots :)

FBRed-2279_STOMP.jpgNext up — Kate, Doug, & ANGIE!!! Haha, Kate is one of my work besties & I had heard a lot about Angie…but never quite realized just how BIG she was until we met this beautiful Fall day!!! :) FBRed-2547_STOMP.jpg

Haha, this post ended up being a lot longer than I thought it would be & I probably could have broken it up into a few separate guys…buuuut that’s no fun :) Hope you all are having a WONDERFUL week — and just in case you missed my big #instie sneak peek last night, I’ll go ahead and share one last photo with you all from the ‘gram…Screenshot 2014-07-30 09.53.57That’s right folks, my brand new website is ALMOST DONE!!! As much as I love this little wordpress space, I am SO. EXCITED. to have a place of my own — full of beautiful photos, fun sliders, sassy golds, and pretty hand-lettering :) Be on the lookout for some more peeks at its awesomeness…can’t wait to finally launch it in the next few weeks!! EEK!!!!

:) Happy Wednesday!

Love love love,

A.Orndorff5SE-0581-2_STOMP.jpgNo words needed, right?! Haha!! I just LOVE this little cutie & had so much fun photographing some fun pictures for Miss Addie’s 1st birthday!!! I’m lucky to call this little munchkin my niece, and I SO enjoy seeing her little smiley face whenever Chris & I visit Indy!!! You would think the hardest part of living away from family would be missing out on all the big moments that come with life (1st birthday, graduations, soccer games, school plays, etc), and it is, don’t get me wrong! However, I think the even harder part is missing all of the little things that happen every day. This session is over 6 months old now — but I still love looking back at it and remembering all of the fun we had in these moments :) A.Orndorff5SE-0564-2_STOMP.jpgAnd how cute is this little get-up Jess had for her pictures?! I’m obsessed :)

A.Orndorff5SE-0677_STOMP.jpgHaha then we decided to plop the little goober in this basket….hilarious attempts to escape immediately followed :)
A.Orndorff5SE-0683_STOMP.jpgHaha!!
A.Orndorff5SE-0689_STOMP.jpgRockin’ that O for Orndorff!!! (And ONE years old!!)
A.Orndorff5SE-0725_STOMP.jpgAnd then Jess pulled out the most awesome tutu EVER!! Loved this little dress-up moment…definitely a glimpse into the future with this diva for sure :)
