Nash Sisters | Children Portraits | Melissa Dewitt Photography North East Indiana

These sisters are always so great to photograph. The bond they have is lovely to capture...I mean, being able to catch that "mood" between siblings gets me right in the feels.

Hannah | New Haven High School | Senior Portraits | Melissa DeWitt Photography North East Indiana Photographer

Hannah had a lot of soft colors which coordinated well with the moody sky.  In fact, I really think the moody sky gave us some awesome light and neat texture in the sky. Besides the occasional goosebumps from the chilly wind, Hannah never looked cold in her images. She was a pro.

A Momtographer's Life | Columbia City Indiana Lifestyle Photographer | Melissa DeWitt Photography

Almost 6 years ago my husband and I agreed I would be a stay at home mom and run a photography business "on the side" to help support our family financially.  Let me be honest here..."one the side" never existed. The first 4 years of the business pretty much took over every aspect of my life. I was just plain out too tired after "working my on the side job" to have the fun my kids wanted to have. I am a wife and mother first....photographer second. All the pictures I take in the world won't ever bring their littleness back. This year I am going to run this business "on the side" while I watch, enjoy, and help my children grow.  2015, you will not control me...I have you by the horns. This is going to be a wonderful year, I feel it already. :-)

Jake & Stephanie | A Wedding Story | Columbia City, Indiana Wedding Photographer | Melissa DeWitt Photography

Something a bridesmaid said during her toast totally defined these two. She said their wedding wasn’t just about two people. It was about three. Jake, Stephanie, and God. That statement couldn’t have been more true with these two. They centered their relationship around God from the very beginning....and in the type of world we live in today that can be very hard for two young people to do.

My Children | A Lifestyle Session | Columbia City, Indiana | Melissa DeWitt Photography

I am sitting here typing out this blog wearing earphones listening to my Pandora station {Dave Matthew's Band is on playing "All Along the Watchtower"} thinking about how the tittle to their song is fitting to this blog .  All these moments I captured in this blog were here all along...and the only place I had them stored were in my mind.  I watch and spend time with  my kids every day, watching them blossom into unique individuals. Here I am with my big fancy camera not capturing a single one of them.

After viewing many many MANY outfit choices from Marci {which I enjoyed looking at and so happy she involved me in the decision}, she picked the one I suggested and she looked fab {you looked fab too, Tim!} !!  :-) AND LET ME TELL YOU something else...Marci also told me they wouldn't be" any good in front of the camera". Ha! Mmmmhhhmmm. ...

Eli | Lifestyle Newborn Session | Warsaw, Indiana | Columbia City, Indiana Newborn Photographer

One of the perks of photographing lifestyle newbie sessions is capturing the home and how so many aspects of the home has changed due to the birth of a baby. I love telling a newborn's story this way.

Cowboys and Indians | Themed Session | Melissa DeWitt Photography | Columbia City IN, Lifestyle Photographer

This session....stole my heart. I loved the theme between mother and son. I loved seeing them play out each role but yet keep their own. It wasn't your typical session, which I adore. Ellie dear, you and your sweet little Milo stole my heart with this session.

Morgan | Senior 2015 | Columbia City High School | Indiana High School Senior Photographer

Oh Morgan, you are quite the stunner. I never had to tell her to smile or give me a serious face...she just DID it, kept switching it up...I mean she was like a true model. We started on her parents gorgeous property and was welcomed by their pet turkeys, peacock, and chickens. Her wardrobe was perfect and so were the Fall colors. And man, can this girl rock some red lips.

Children's Portraits | Columbia City, IN Childern Photographer

I love capturing that essence of freedom. Watching them laugh and run around freely you can clearly tell that children haven't experienced the weight of the world on their shoulders like us adults have...and they do not feel pressure to be anyone but their selves.

Rhett 6months Old | Columbia City In Children's Photographer

Rhett was seriously the sweetest little boy. Six months is one of those ages where you just don't know if the baby will love or hate the camera. Rhett definitely loved the camera. Smile after smile, this baby boy melted my heart. He was seriously the most perfect little model ever. See for yourself...
