Stewart Family | Indianapolis Family Photographer

I know, I know, I’ve been saying this a lot lately. But I really do mean it with this one. This is my favorite outdoor family session to date. The parents, the boys, the horses, the sunrise, the light fog early on, the outfits, the new location- it could not have been better. Combine that with the fact that this family was pretty much game for anything (5am wake up call? Sure. Step around the road apples and through the much? Bring it on. Get up close and personal with a few new horse friends? Yes, please!) , and we made some dreamy photos.

Ashley is a fellow Indiana photographer, a fellow teacher, and a good friend. She was the first person, six years ago, who when I asked, told me, “Yes, call yourself a photographer. If you’re photographing families and you’re doing it well and you love it, you’re a photographer.” That stuck with me. It gave me the little boost of confidence I needed at the time. So here we are six years down the road, and I was feeling so lucky to be able to photograph her family. All the stars aligned for the perfect session.

If I had a day that I could give you, I’d give to you the day just like today.
If I had a song that I could sing for you, I’d sing a song to make you feel this way.
If I had a tale that I could tell you, I’d tell a tale sure to make you smile.
If I had a wish that I could wish for you, I’d make a wish for sunshine for all the while.
From “Sunshine On My Shoulders” by John Denver
