Tori & Sam | Indianapolis, IN
I have always been fascinated by photos. I love the feeling of holding a photograph in my hand and enjoying the memories it can envoke. A tangible link to the fleeting moments of life that, as I get older, only go by faster. Long before gallery walls were a Pinterest-worthy trend, you could find me snapping endless rolls of photos to develop at the local Jewel-Osco and using scotch tape to cover my bedroom walls with prints. Tacky? Yes. Meaningful? Absolutely. There is just an undeniable quality of photo prints that a digital photo just doesn’t seem to possess. I’d spend hours gazing at those prints, enjoying a walk down memory lane or a pick me up when I was missing someone I love. To me, photographs are a way to stay connected with those that mean the most to me.
So when Tori and Sam’s only request for their Fort Harrison State Park portrait session was to recreate a favorite print from their childhood, my nostalgic, photographer heart was in pure heaven. Tori and Sam are two sweet cousins (but really, they have that special cousin-but-sister bond) that were bold, up-for-anything-this-crazy-photographer-asked, absolute naturals in front of my camera. Their session was a blast!
Much love friends,
