The Marra Family: Molly, Andy + Ella

October 25

a

Loved photographing this sweet family! Molly and I went to the same high school and over a year ago, she was a guest at a wedding I shot in downtown Indianapolis. It was before she was pregnant with Ella and as were briefly were catching up towards the end of the reception, she said someday when she starts a family she’d reach out for photos. On top of an amazing wedding, it basically made my night. Well, it was wonderful to see that time come! There’s something really special about photographing a very new family in that first year. Ella is the sweetest and between the three of us we were able to capture some special smiles in that perfect golden hour fall light.

I also feel it necessary to mention my sincerest hair envy for Molly’s AMAZING locks. Maybe it’s because I tend to line up my subjects so they are backlit, and all of that dreamy light makes her look like she belongs in a hair commercial, but man – what a beautiful mama with a beautiful family! I sort of couldn’t stop talking about it. If you’re a female (or male) with amazing long and flow hair, you can probably expect me to comment on it at least 5 times while photographing you.

So happy for Molly and Andy! Love this moment so, so much….

Is there anything sweeter than a dad with his little girl?

I can’t get enough of their sweet pup in this photo. If the pet is around, I’ll always have them come in for a photo!

This dreamy fall light is already starting to fade. I’m going to miss it so much this winter…
