I’m a hybrid photographer living in a small town west of Indianapolis where the stop lights are few and the people are sincere. I love the slowed-down pace of life around here and more importantly, the wonderfully fulfilling job of being a digital + film photographer for some amazing people all over the midwest.
When I'm not taking photos, I find so much joy in sipping a cup of coffee, reading my bible and journaling in the morning light, snuggling our pups and going on dates with my cute hubby.
We love to travel, renovate our home, and spend time with our friends and family. Whatever it is that I am doing, it is done in the pursuit to live this life joyfully and intentionally, all while serving others and praising Jesus.
Let’s be friends!
oh hey, it's me!
Traveling is such a thrill. The diverse food, the extraordinary sites, and the exciting people are some of our favorite reasons to travel as often as we do. Some of our favorite destinations include Hawaii, Miami, Northern Michigan, Las Vegas, LA, Orlando, San Diego, and the Bahamas. We can't wait to go to Europe someday!
We live in the country and have the most spectacular view of the sun rising every morning. It is gorgeous and such a gift from God. I especially love drinking my coffee and reading my devotion as it shines through our windows.
He is literally my favorite person. We've been married since I was 20 and are high school sweethearts. It was probably the best decision I've ever made and I am so thankful the Lord placed him in my life when he did! There is no one else I'd rather watch movies, laugh in the car, adventure, or eat pizza once a week with. I am one lucky girl.
I know it probably sounds cliche but honestly, I adore this work and feel so lucky to be able to do this as a career. I also love sharing this passion with others via education and sharing my knowledge and experience on the blog.
We absolutely adore our pups. There is little doubt about the fact that we spoil them. Just ask my husband. They love car rides (Luna puts her head out every time), getting treats after shaking your hand, visiting the grandparents and snuggling. You can find them at my feet while I work most days. It is simply the best and we wouldn't have it any other way! Goldendoodles are the best!

"Lex was a perfect photographer for our wedding! She was very personal with the pictures, working to capture the moments of surprise, happiness, and love during our pictures, wedding ceremony and reception. She addressed all the pictures we had envisioned on that day. I would recommend her to anyone looking for family pictures, wedding photos, or engagement photos, she was fantastic!!"
Jeremy + Kelly
"To say Lex was the easiest to work with would be an understatement. She makes your sessions so personal, is very easy to talk to, and her work is seriously top notch. We will be using her for every event possible from here on out. She made our wedding such an ease and was so amazing to work with! She is fantastic and I would recommend her to anyone!"
