edwards family session // madison indiana family photographer

Hannah and I planned this family photography session months in advance and little did we know that a heat wave was about to hit the Ohio River Valley in July. I arrived at the family’s farmhouse in Milton, Kentucky (across the river from Madison, Indiana) for their family portrait session just in time for the sun’s heat to waver and give us a small break from the blistering summer temperatures.

When I arrived at the home, I met Hannah, John and their three beautiful children being themselves at their home. The children played peek-a-boo with me through the windows. It was their first family photography session, ever. Boy was I nervous!

After spending just a few minutes with the family, it was apparent they had a deep love and connection with one another. This spiritual family is also in the process of adopting a child from Ethiopia. Keep up with their journey here

Please enjoy some of my favorites from the session!

Baby McKenna – 3 months

I wanted to post some of my favorites from my session with little McKenna and her parents in Milton, Ky. I have the pleasure of working with McKenna for the next nine months as I document all of her milestones! Jenna and Jessie decided to book me for a Milestone Package and if you’re not familiar with it, keep reading! 🙂

I just started offering these packages this spring and boy are they a hit! With the packages, parents are able schedule either two or four sessions within the first 14 months of the baby’s life. Popular times to schedule are newborn (within the first two weeks after birth), three, six or nine months and one year.

When the baby is a newborn, its so great to capture what it was like when they first come into the world. Fun hats, unique props and photos that really capture the baby’s features are the reason many parents choose this session. At three months, it’s all about the little features: learning to smile, tiny hands and feet and snuggling with mommy and daddy. Then when the baby is a self-sitter, we schedule the six month session. These are so fun! These are great for being able to capture the baby’s personality as it’s forming. Fun outfits, props and backgrounds make the six months session unique. Then, when the baby is crawling (generally around nine months) we schedule the mover session. I say this, because the baby is always on the move! Then, to round out the baby’s first year, we schedule the one year session when he/she is walking. These can be a lifestyle portrait session or a fun cake-eating time!

Each of these sessions comes with several poses and a family pose as well as the edited high-resolution images on a disc. I currently offer individual sessions and now full and half Milestone packages. Please email me at amyjohorn@gmail.com for rates and scheduling. June is booking fast so don’t delay!

Complete one of these packages by scheduling a maternity session, then at the end of the first year, we can work together to create an album that your family can cherish for years.

I just love these photos of little McKenna (and her big blue eyes)! Enjoy 🙂

I love the way that Jessie is looking at Jenna, and she at McKenna. One of my favorites!

Love these blues!

davis family (sneak peek!)

The best part about the weather breaking for the season? Well, it is certainly not all the rain we’ve been having! But the rain has helped the beautiful flowers come into bloom and the grass be extra green. Although we had to rearrange this shoot last minute to miss the rain, my session with Alicia and her beautiful family went off without a hitch! The weather was perfect, the family was up for anything and these awesome children had the best smiles for me! Between playing dress up and racing monster trucks, this was a fun-filled session!

We met at the Historic Lanier Mansion in Madison, Indiana for this Saturday evening shoot. Although the river had flooded the back lawn of the mansion and high school prom go-ers in eccentric dresses were abound, there were still plenty of great nooks in the gardens as backdrops.

I loved working with these guys and hope to again in the future!

Here are a few of my favorites from the session:

He LOVES monster trucks! 🙂

I have so many favorites of her! She loves to play dress up and put her tinkerbell outfit on for our session.

baby quinn

I was so excited after my session with baby Quinn this past Sunday near Madison, Indiana. Not only was this six-month old baby just overall happy, but she has such a distinct personality already! She really knew how to work her bright blue eyes to her advantage! I’m about halfway through the photos and wanted to post some of my favorites!

I feel like I have baby fever lately! With each session, a different little “person” emerges from these photos. I just love that their little personalities are shining through.

I love this little pose!

spring has sprung!

I love that spring is finally here! One of my favorite parts of spring is being able to have photo sessions outdoors again. The grass turns green, the flowers bloom and the kids LOVE running around.

Here are a few of my favorites from an impromptu session at a birthday party for these three children in Bedford, Ky. My cousin throws a party celebrating all three birthdays at once. I didn’t have any photos of little Ryland yet, so I took the opportunity to rally the kiddos. I’m hoping to have the same success at this year’s party (which happens to be tomorrow!)

If you are wanting memorable family photos, I will travel within two hours of Dillsboro, Indiana for family photography sessions. For booking and rates, please email at amyjohorn@gmail.com

schafer family favorites

Here are a few of my favorites from my Sunday afternoon session with the Schafer family. The session was at the Schafer home in Canaan, outside of Madison, Indiana. It was the first time in several years that this entire clan came together in the same place! It was great to watch them all smile at one other and enjoy one another’s company.

who had the best christmas card this year?

How many times do you get a Christmas card in the mail and it’s off-center, over-exposed, the dog is licking the baby and junior has his eyes closed? Okay. Maybe that is an exaggeration, but you get the drift. Now, think of the cards you’ve gotten over the past year that made you stop and smile. Or better yet, say, “That’s a great picture!”

Family photos are not just a great way to share cheer during the holiday, they are something to be treasured. My heart literally breaks when people share with me that they haven’t had family portraits since a child was a baby (or before others were born!).

I believe everyone has a right to great photos to share, display and cherish. Family photo sessions are particularly popular in the fall and book fast with the upcoming Christmas card rush. Take advantage of the fall foliage or even the spring blooms by booking early. Photos can be an intimate family photo, extended relatives or even with pets!
