I don’t know what life with your kids is like, but mine is messy, fun, chaotic, and grounded in quaint, simple moments, like a book being read for the 78th time and blueberry pancake breakfasts. It is also speeding by all too fast.
Let’s be real. I know you’ve got a ton of adorable photos on your phone, but how many are YOU actually in? Of course, the cute and the quirky things your sticky little cherubs are doing right now totally deserve to be documented. But so do you. In fact, we’ll be sure to sneak in a few photos of just mom and dad during your session; after all, your precious family is a product of the love you share.
Think of it as a little date, with a lot of background noise.
I’m Abigail, a fellow mama and family photographer nestled in Fort Wayne, INdiana, who believes the best way to capture a fleeting moment is in a fun, stress-free, silly way.
"My family loves Abigail! She takes the most beautiful photos you could ask for. Bright and airy is what we like and she delivers every time. She is attentive to details and is patient with kids. She will work with you and what you are looking for to make sure you are happy with every detail. She has the kindest heart and works hard to make sure you are happy with the results; her editing skills are superb! Did I mention my family comes all the way out from California for her to take our family photos?! She’s that good."
"My family and I stumbled upon a gem in our search for a new family photographer when we found Abigail! She is absolutely everything we were looking for: professional, kind, timely, fantastic with the kids, easy to work with, and every single picture we receive after each session is gorgeous! She has a talent for capturing the sweetest expressions in the most beautiful lighting, making for photographs we can cherish for a lifetime. We consider ourselves extremely blessed to have found Abigail, and we genuinely believe she is the best photographer in the greater Fort Wayne area."
"There is no one I trust more than Abigail to capture the important people in my life, especially my children. Not only does she provide timeless photographs, but she is simply wonderful to work with. She radiates joy and makes you feel comfortable and at ease during sessions. She truly is an artist when it comes to photography. Her attention to detail, ability to capture emotion, and the way she photographs those tiny, sweet, baby features will have you easily reminiscing for years to come."
"Abigail has been our family photographer since 2015, and there’s no one I’d trust more to document our journey of life. She’s captured my husband and I as newlyweds, when we shared the news of our first pregnancy. She’s been there to document our summer days on our front porch when our little one first started to walk, and she was there capturing the fleeting moments at home in the evening sunshine after we had our second baby. Her work is stunning and timeless, and the images she captures are always the perfect reflection of our family."
"If you’re looking for a photographer to capture family photos, look no further. Abigail has the sweetest soul and is so helpful, creative, and patient during the session. She knows how to get energetic toddlers to smile and works great with everyone in the family. She captures the most beautiful photos and we are always more than satisfied with the photos we receive. We always look forward to our family sessions and will continue to have her capture our precious family over the years."

I am willing to travel anywhere to capture your precious family. I love shooting in new places - especially if the location is dear to your heart and already holds many sweet memories for you. Travel fees may apply for any travel more than an hour outside of Fort Wayne, IN.

Usually the most “imperfect” shots are the ones that speak to the heart. So, I won’t ask your kids to smile (although I’ll definitely get them to) and I won’t expect them to be on their best behavior. I will encourage lots of play, and maybe even a little naughtiness.
When it comes to family photos, sometimes you need to call in a friend, aka Abigail. (Yea, I said it. If you made it this far on the page, we’re buds.) Together we’ll play and capture beautiful, one-of-a-kind photos that everyone will gush over for years—photos that are more about being reminded of just how blessed you are than striking a pose.
I’m not aiming for perfect photos. I am after authentic images that are perfectly you. No stress, just some time to be silly together and soak up where you are as a family right now. You don’t want to miss another moment. You deserve these memories. I promise the hardest part will be choosing your favorites.
and honestly, that is what makes family photography so much fun. Maybe your little one is making a funny face or giggling with abandon rather than looking at the camera. That is what I am after.
Behind mismatched socks, messy hair and baby drool is a whole lot of love
