I love photographing families.:)

From left to right: Harrison (AKA, Harry), Tara, Lennon, John, Norah.
06_Long_BBMK_2015Those names…. think they’re Beatles fans?! Yeahhhh…. I’d say! I mean, at first glance you’d think that Norah was the only non-Beatle name. But… being quite the fan myself I knew immediately that it is in fact Beatle-related. Norah Jones is the daughter of Ravi Shankar who greatly influenced George Harrison’s music. 02_bobbimike_IndianapolisPhotographer_lfam15Meet Lennon.  Here are the five words his parents used to describe him: Bookworm, Soccer Star, Lego Aficionado, Kind Hearted, Jokester
03_bobbimike_IndianapolisPhotographer_lfam15What fun parents you two are!04_bobbimike_IndianapolisPhotographer_lfam15Heeeeere’s Norah! She’s her mom’s twin.:)Here are her five words:T-Swift Lover, Sassy, Pack Rat, Motherly, Competitive  05_bobbimike_IndianapolisPhotographer_lfam15Love dad’s shirt… Bayside Tigers.:)06_bobbimike_IndianapolisPhotographer_lfam15And last but most certainly not least… HARRISON!  This kid is made of PURE joy…!!! His five words: Dinosaur Aficionado, Mama’s Boy, Artist, Laid Back, Smiley 07_bobbimike_IndianapolisPhotographer_lfam15Then a quickie outfit change and we headed to a field. 08_bobbimike_IndianapolisPhotographer_lfam15I adore this family.:)

How they met, as told by Tara  :: We met when we were 14, we lived down the street from each other and used to play “ditch ‘em” with all the neighbor kids. He asked me to “go out” back then, and we have been inseparable ever since! Fairy Tales really do come true!

I love seeing a mom walk her daughter down the aisle.:)If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know how I feel about hands…. and if you’re new here… well… I think our hands communicate so much about how we feel.  See momma’s hands? She sure does love and care for Anne.:D

019_indianapolisphotographer_ajw15Oh!? Did I forget to mention that Anne is the singer of my favorite wedding band?!  YES YES YES…. SHE IS! The Doo Band (formerly Zanna-Doo) performed that night with many guest singers. But seeeeriously now whooo is she to resist!?020_indianapolisphotographer_ajw15021_indianapolisphotographer_ajw15Notice she switched dresses? I’m a HUGE fan of that! Bustles break, dresses get hot and heavy, it’s hard to go to the bathroom, etc. etc. etc…. switching into a lighter weight/more casual dress after the events take place is GEEEENIUS… TRUST ME! Anyone out there who’s done it, can you back me up here?!
