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.:)
09_bobbimike_IndianapolisPhotographer_lfam15Happy 13 year anniversary you two!10_bobbimike_IndianapolisPhotographer_lfam15I LOOOOVE THISSSSS!!!! My favorite:!:11_bobbimike_IndianapolisPhotographer_lfam15

Hiya friends! Long time no talk…:)Lots of posts coming soooooon! I assure you, they’re all worth the wait! My travel schedule in May and June kicked my booty… my apologies! Enough about that…. on to the Anne and Jeff amazingness!

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?!

Fast forward a couple months when we were both back in Chicago and Tyler asked me out for Cheeseburgers and we both quickly realized it was the real deal.
