financial plans & strategies: head shots

I had the privilege of shooting some head shots for a business this week! Financial Plans & Strategies is an investment company here in Greenwood..they do an awesome job of bringing you in, making you feel welcome, and helping you understand money.  Definitely what the majority of people are looking for when trying to find a good business to help them invest.  I’m really excited about how this shoot turned out..I’ve only done a few corporate jobs and this one has been one of my favorites!  Check it out, and if you’re a business in the Indianapolis area looking for some fresh photos, let me know and I would love to meet up with you!

Family Shoot

office pride appreciation (mini session)

My incredible parents own a commercial cleaning business..they’ve built it from the ground up, starting from one employee (my stepdad) and moving on up to over 40 employees in just a few years. (I was one of those employees in my engaged-to-be-married months!) Now my stepdad and my mom run the business together, which is the most adorable thing ever. The respect and admiration I have for the way they run their business can’t be stated in a blog post; they have given everything to God, given up on some dreams to make way for others, gone through some rough patches with learning how to run their own business, and have been blessed immensely for their hard work and honorable standards.

All this to say, a lot of the credit can also be given to their amazing employees. Cleaning is not an easy fact, I would argue it’s one of the most difficult. Late nights, crazy messy offices (when I cleaned, there was an office that CONSISTENTLY had food crumbs and smears everywhere, and let’s not even go into detail about how sick the bathrooms could be sometimes…), the occasional creeper driving around outside resulting in police calls, lots of physical labor along with the fact that most of them work all by themselves makes for an intense working situation..but I know many them who have stayed with it, working incredibly hard and doing an astounding job. My parents, of course, see much more of this in their employees than I do, and so they decided to hold an Office Pride Appreciation Day to thank their employees and friends for the job well done.

They invited everyone to come out, bring their families, eat some great food, and get family photos taken. When my mom hired me to take the pictures, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I met met some of the most amazing people; some of the sweetest families. I was shocked to find that a majority of them had either never had family pictures taken, or had never had them professionally done, so I went into it a little bit nervous, wanting them to have a great experience with professional photos. It seemed to go well!

Senior Shoot

keegan: senior photo shoot

Man, am I excited that I got to do Keegan’s senior photos.  What a great kid.  I got to spend a week with him in Haiti last spring when Matt and I took some of the youth group kids on a missions trip there.  Poor guy was sick the first few days, but he stuck it out and worked hard the whole time he was there; you don’t see that kind of effort in many high-schoolers these days, you know?

Keegan is on the Center Grove high school football team, and what a GREAT season they had.  Their last game was on Friday (unfortunately it was a loss right before the state game) but I hope they’re so proud of themselves and the job they’ve done.  Keegan and a pretty big handful of the team are in our youth group, so it was awesome to see how the Lord moved through these guys to build such a strong team.  Proud of you guys!  So anyway, here’s some of the photos from the session with Keegan! (Not gonna lie, I felt pretty cool taking photos out on the CG football field…) 🙂
