The Swisher Family: Chris, Kelsey, Tucker, Tanner, Ripley & Pearcy Lou

October 4


Happy Thursday, friends! The sun is shining in downtown Indy and there are many reasons to be happy today – one of which being that I get to share this gorgeous family with you all. I love these photos in a special way. The light, the location and the subjects fill my heart right up.

A few years ago, there were a few months in the late spring/early summer that I watched Ripley. Ripley (whose name trumps most every other person I know with coolness) is the little guy pictured in the middle above. He was only six months at the time and his personality was really starting to shine. I enjoy most babies almost immediately but I almost instantly fell for sweet little Ripley. When I first met him, I was at a time in my life where I was sorting things out with my business and diving head first into all of these dreams of mine. My rebranding was in it’s earliest stages and I was so excited for what was to come. I was discovering my potential and in a lot of ways Ripley was as well right by my side. I connected with him from the start and I’m still so thankful for the time I had with him.

Since then, Chris and Kelsey have added a beautiful baby girl to their bunch. When I found out they were having a girl, I was over the moon for them! Pearcy Lou (short for Pearson Louise) joined the Swisher fam this past May and she is a total gem. So much fun to see the boys with their baby sister. One thing that’s for certain is Tucker, Tanner and Rip will always be watching out for their baby sis ; )

Swisher fam – Thank you so much for being such a special part of my life! I had such a fun time spending the evening with you guys and I look forward to watching the kids grow over the years. Hope to see you again very soon!

That’s Tucker on the left and Tanner on the right who Ripley lovingly calls Tuckuh and Tannuh. They are awesome big brothers!

PLou did such a great job on her first photo shoot. She is as cute as a button!

Tucker is well beyond his years. He is intellectual and extremely bright for his age. I sometimes wish we could grab lunch once a week and catch up on current events. He cracks me up!

Oh how I adore these moments.

The Swishers are certainly one of the most beautiful families I’ve ever known. I’m the youngest of four and I’ve got a soft spot for a family of six. Lots of love in this family!

Ripley’s personality has developed so much since I photographed the Swishers last year around this time. He is much more independent now. He kept proudly firing off words that he knows (he’ll be 2 next month) – owl, cloud, baby…

I could snuggle this girl all day.

LOVING this portrait of Tanner.

Happy weekend, friends! Hope you enjoy the fall weekend with friends and family….Xo
