Last year my husband and I visited our dear friends who’d just had a baby here in the state of Indiana. While we were visiting, we both started to fall in love with this beautiful state and the sweet people of Indiana. After talking and praying, and more talking, we decided to do something we never thought we’d do. My husband started looking for work here and after about a year of job searching, he was offered an incredible job opportunity with Eli Lilly. It all seemed to happen fairly quickly and while I write this, we’re waiting to close escrow on the sale of our home in Southern California and shortly after that close escrow on a beautiful home here in Zionsville, Indiana.

I can’t tell you how many times I ended at the decision of just homeschooling them forever. I even had an entire argument laid out in my favor for when I pitched the idea to my hubby. Thankfully, I didn’t have to give any arguments because the second they stepped foot into their new schools, they were all smiles.
I’m excited to say I’ve already booked a few sessions and am anxiously awaiting the days I get to shoot more family pictures, senior pictures, and hopefully weddings, here in Indiana. For now, I’ve been doing a lot of location scouting. Here are a few of the spots I love:
