Aric & Kristin’s Maternity Story ~ Kokomo & Indianapolis Maternity Photographer

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmassssssss. There is nothing in the world like getting an email from a previous bride and groom, informing me that they are expecting their first little one. I met Kristin and Aric waaaaay back(in 2015 right guys?) when they were a part of Cassie & Scott’s wedding party. The following year, I photographed K&A’s wedding, so you can believe my excitement when they informed me earlier this year that they were due in February of 2019! 

They knew that they wanted to use a local Christmas tree farm, since Kristin’s maternity session would be done just prior to Christmas. Dull’s Tree Farm in Thornton Indiana is my all time favorite tree farm, and I actually had my own family photos done there a couple years back. Even though we live in Kokomo Indiana we make the drive every year because it truly is the best Christmas Tree Farm in the area. It turned out to be the perfect location and the weather was that wintery overcast kind of day, reflecting that true look of Christmas with some hot chocolate and snuggles to add to it. 

Kristin and Aric ended their session with some fun wreaths that they had purchased from Dull’s while they were there(she placed it over her belly at the end of our session, it was so cute!). And much to my surprise, they had also ordered some table centerpieces, one of which they gifted to me! Gift giving this time of year makes the season so sweet and I love buying that “perfect” gift for others. It’s always a surprise and incredibly sweet to receive a “perfect” gift from Clients. Thanks for helping decorate my dining room table for Christmas K&A! And thanks for trekking out to Dull’s Tree Farm with me, I love how your photography session turned out <3 

Joni & Aaron ~ Carmel, Indiana {Woodland Country Club}

Rain-rain-go-away-come-again-another-day. I sang that really fast so I’m hoping that it works. This past month has been filled with weddings, which I am so ever thankful for. And along with Spring weddings comes Spring rain.

Though April showers do bring May flowers, it also brought Joni & Aaron’s big day. 

Joni & Aaron live in California together, though they and their families are from the Indy area. And they are also already married. They have been for quite some time. They were far away at the time and the moment seemed right. And with both of them being in the military, it would have been difficult to make it home.

Their parents offered a wedding gift to them. They gave them the choice between a sum of money, which they could spend however they liked, or a wedding.

Joni & Aaron wanted so much to spend their special day with family and friends, so they planned a post wedding celebration, including a wedding ceremony and reception.

It was rainy at the Woodland Country Club in Carmel, Indiana but mother nature granted us just enough time for portraits and the ceremony outdoors, before heading inside to the main event. Which was celebrating Joni & Aaron’s marriage. Congratulations  J & A!!!
