Julie & Justin & Boys! Elkhart, Indiana Family and Engagement Session

August 17, 2015

“A woman’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets.” -Titanic


So Justin and Julie are awesome.  Favorite quotes from their session include, “This is the longest time I’ve had to look at you for quite a while” [Julie], and “This is like, a reverse prom pose!” [Julie]….  Needless to say, if they lived in Indiana, Julie and I would totally be real life friends ;).

And while Justin’s favorite thing to do might not include being photographed, he did a smashing job… and I might or might not have promised him I’d watch his favorite sci fi movie before shooting his wedding [which my husband is convinced I might hate, but I’m going to take one for the team!]

In addition to the two of them, they have two little boys!  Julie’s mom and dad graciously came with to watch the boys for a bit while we escaped to take some shots of just the two of them.  Lucky for us, Elkhart had a free movie and bounce house they were able to go hang out at!

So excited to see and photograph you again soon!


ps: When we first spoke, we figured out that Julie and my husband went to school together at Tri State a few years back.  While I was working on these images, Ronald came up behind me and was like, “Who is that? She looks familiar, do I know her? Was she in a sorority?” Answers: Julie, yes, and I think so ;).

    Awe! How sweet. Love the mix of family and just mom and dad. Love the second to last shot of the two of them against the door and the one near the top of them on the steps with the whole building in the background. Gorgeous locations. Gorgeous family.
