Gideon Arlo

I had so much fun with this little guy in my studio!  Gideon wouldn't sleep, but was quite content with watching me work.  I often caught him just staring off into space like he was trying to understand his life and why he's here.  It was seriously so dang cute!  He also had no interest in being contained.  He quickly and easily wiggled his way out of every swaddle I did.  😅

Matthew and Sisters

A couple weeks ago I was able to go visit Matthew's family as they were finally all home together so I could take pictures of him with his sisters.  He had turned 3 months old that day and had grown quite a bit since I last saw him.  I just love how expressive he is!  His sisters were obsessed with the doll bed I brought to put him in.  They couldn't believe how perfectly he fit on it.  They are already learning how to be good, helpful big sisters to this special little guy.

Prayers are so appreciated for this wonderful family as they continue to adjust and learn how to care for their precious boy.  💗

IEN State Finals

I certainly wouldn't have thought when I started my photography business a decade ago that I would be photographing an esports event.  However, in the last couple of years, Joe started the esports program at Snider (which has been incredibly successful), joined the Indiana Esports Network board and quickly became the director, and has become a prominent voice and expert of sorts who has traveled around to speak about the benefits of esports for students.  In case you can't tell, I think Joe is pretty dang amazing!  So this year when IEN had to start from scratch to create their plan for State Finals, I knew I wanted to help.  In a lot of ways, it was a lot more difficult than I expected (my body was not physically prepared for how much walking it would be...😅), but overall, everything went so well!  It was a joy to see these kids working together so well and being surrounded by so many families who were there to cheer them on.  We are incredibly grateful to Ball State for hosting this wonderful event!

afO's A Peculiar People

I finally took some time to go through my pictures and pick some of my favorites from this show to share with you.  I really, really enjoyed this show!  All of the cast members were so very talented!  When I was going through the pictures today, I was reminded at just how physical this play was.  I was especially impressed with how well done the choreography was for the fight scenes.  It felt so real and intense!
