The Brinkleys & Family – Kokomo Indiana Photographer

You guys, how grown up is Saylor!? You may remember her sweet face(and beautiful red hair) gracing my Facebook and Instagram more than once, I can’t seem to get enough of her. Her parents(the gorgeous couple above) decided to document her first year of life by choosing one of our Grow With Me Plans and we’ve been watching her bloom ever since.

This was our first outdoor session together and my goodness it didn’t disappoint. It was technically the day before the “first” day of Fall but we managed to find some beautiful fall colors anyway to celebrate the coming change.

David & Carly were as beautiful as ever and easily cuddled into poses for their session(because loooooove). They matched up outfits perfectly for their session and Carly chose a gorgeous cotton rust dress which is a very “in” color and fabric for fall sessions this year.

They brought along their extended family this time, including Grandma Rita who I feel like I’ve become BFFs with via social media over the last year. Of course she ADORES Saylor just like I do so she frequently comments on my work whenever S pops up. It was so nice to finally meet her in person.

And oh my goodness, don’t get me started on the sweet couple to the right, Casey & Jacob who are Saylor’s Aunt & Uncle. Just as playful as they are sweet, I’d ask them to hug or kiss and I’d usually be met with funny faces, flirty jokes, and wrestling moves.

I adored getting to know this family and little more and watching them have so much fun together during their session. See my favorite below <3 Thanks for coming out you guys!

Kura & Eleanora’s Breastfeeding Story

Breastfeeding is a memory that I’ll just never want to forget.

The challenge. The frustration. The overwhelming need for food. The exhaustion. The weighted feeds. The literal blood sweat and tears. The lactation consultations. The pumping. The weeks of hard work. And the eventual routine(whether breastfeeding or bottle feeding) that became as easy as breathing.

Nursing little ones is something very near and dear to my heart. With three babies of my own and having experienced the *many* struggles of motherhood( breastfeeding being just one of them), I was so excited when Kura contacted me requesting a breastfeeding session!

She wanted to celebrate 6 incredible months of feeding Eleanora and we did just that.

6 months is one of my favorite ages to photograph, they are so curious! Eleanora was definitely hungry but her curiosity won over her hunger many times. She stretched this way and that way to look at the stranger with the camera making all the clicking noises while she was trying to enjoy her dinner.

Happy 6 months Eleanora & Kura!
