The Dausman Family: Jeff, Tigon, Bella, Lilah & Hudson

October 23

You know,  it’s raining here in Indianapolis but honestly I hardly noticed because I’ve been working on this post and these bright and cheerful images all morning long. I just glanced out my window and saw that part of my street is flooded. Eeek!  It will definitely be a Hunters rain boots and rain jacket kind of day. The rain couldn’t detract in the least from my excitement to share these images with you all. I’m really proud of ’em.

Ahh… the Dausmans. I met the Dausman family a few years ago now when Tigon contacted me to take photos of her sweet Hudson who was 5 months at the time. I remember Hudson was a dream to photograph – barely made a peep the entire shoot and was the most angelic sleeping baby ever. I’ve since taken their family photos three times (this post being my 3rd time) and each time I fall a little bit more in love with this family. They’re incredibly kind, fun and good gracious are they a fashionable bunch. I’m secretly giddy each time I go into a Dausman clan shoot because I know they will look like they stepped out of a catalogue. Our most recent shoot was no exception. Tigon has the most amazing eye and I sometimes wish she could style all of my family shoots.  🙂

We had rescheduled this shoot a couple of times per Tigon’s request to have that “glowey” light in her photos and I’m so glad we waited it out because, whoa – the light in these photos is so gorgeous. We really lucked out with amazing weather. The Dausmans recently moved and had me come out to their new home to take these photos. I love shooting families at their homes not only because of the ease but also the comfort level. We had such a blast taking their up to date family photos. I’m already excited to receive their Christmas card!

Dausmans – You know I adore you all. I feel really blessed that our paths crossed a few years ago and that you all are still in my life. You’re always such a joy to photograph and without fail, you always remind me why I love my job so much. Thanks for being such a bright spot in my life. I appreciate each of you…

The Dausman girls are as pretty as they get.

Oh, Lilah. I could photograph this sweetheart all day long.

I can’t believe how much older Bella seems since I photographed the Dausmans last year.  She is the perfect big sister.

Hudson is at the age where he is newly independent – won’t sit still for very long and is interested in everything him around him. This age is great for extra cardio in my day.

At some point in the future, God willing, I’m excited to have a family like this.

My favorite family image I’ve ever taken. ♥

Then we had a quick wardrobe change. At this point, Hudson was almost checked out and the kiddos were just laying in the grass : ) but together we made it work.

LOVED Hud’s “greatness” shirt. I want one.

See what I mean with Lilah?!

Happy Tuesday, you guys! As my dear friend Lara would say, make what matters happen today. Forget the rest. Xo
