{ Wedding Clients |2016 }  

Happy New Year to all of our wonderful clients and friends!  What an incredible year 2016 turned out to be…also our 11th season as wedding and portrait photographers!  We didn’t travel too far from home again this year so we could be close to our twin baby girls { who turned 2 on Thanksgiving day } and our little boy who is now 4.5 years old.  Over the last year we also started and helped grow 2 other exciting companies that we run with friends: Blooms & Linen Boutique + The Home Aesthetic.  We had the opportunity to be invited into the lives and celebrations of 11 Brides + Grooms in 2016!  The perfect number for us as we currently like to stay between 10-15 weddings per year.  We are thankful for every new friendship that was made and all of the happy memories we had the privilege to capture/be a part of over the last 12 months.  It is always an honor to be asked to document such an incredible and truly important day, as 2 people make a life long commitment to each other!  We LOVE photographing every unique detail, moments between family and friends and creating lasting relationships with clients, guests and other wedding vendors.  Thank you to all of those who trust us to capture your memories!  Enjoy some of the social media preview collages we had posted over the year from each special Bride and Groom!  Wishing everyone a new year filled with love, growing faith, accomplishment of goals and genuine happiness.  *   Much Love, Stefanie + Brock Childs  *

  { Our Family | 2016 }  

Indianapolis, IN:  Our last couple years have been quite the adventure since adding our twin baby girls, Emmaline Ruby & Hazel Rose to our family!  Parenting in general has been a wild ride for us over the last 4.5 years of having little Rhett Easton.  Even though Brock and I have been together for 15 years in 2017, we often can’t remember what it was like pre-kiddos!  Life truly gets better and better with age…change and learning new routines are often hard, however the happiness, growth and peace that we find as we age is something we have come to cherish.  At the end of 2016, we sold our house that we had loved-well since having babies.  It was a place that was filled with emotions of pure joy and some points sadness, extreme exhaustion during sleepless nights of 3 babies waking up at all hours and then caring for energy filled kids during the day, all of our twins 1st big milestones and Rhett growing into a little boy happened there, LOTS of laughter with friends, our kids becoming friends, delish dinners on our deck, dreaming up future plans as a married team and with close friends, creating new business { Blooms & Linen Boutique  &  The Home Aesthetic } and managing others during nap times and late nights, constant prayers and spiritual growth, learning to find balance in the midst of juggling parenting/being business owners….but most of all….Never ending LOVE!  We decided to move on from this home that we adored and renovated to our modern farmhouse style, because it was the perfect time to sell while we had plenty of equity built up… but could most importantly to fulfill our dreams and goals we had set using Financial Peace University over the last 6 years { Which we HIGHLY recommend for every married couple and especially faith-based small business owners to want to become debt free }.  We are now in the process of purchasing a new home locally and are beyond excited for what the future holds!

Before we moved out of this special place, I asked my dear friend Kelsey to document our lives one last time there.  She arrived early morning as we got our twins out of bed and we then headed to our kitchen to make pancakes for breakfast { One of Rhett’s favorite things to do/eat }.  So much of our life had been spent around the kitchen, cuddling in our bedroom, rocking/soothing babies in the nursery, enjoying our beautiful backyard and reading books in the rustic playroom…we do love being home but it was also because it was often too daunting of a task to leave the house with 3 kids under the age of 2.5 { when we brought the twins home }.  Every crevice of that space had precious meaning to us and Kelsey captured it SO well!  Life is beyond messy with multiple little ones but it is BEAUTIFUL at the same time!  Nothing is perfect in our house, lives or family but we treasure what we have created!  God has given us unmeasurable blessings and we are eternally grateful for this life we have been given!  Here are some favorites and a glimpse into what our day-to-day lives have recently looked like :)  Thank you Kelsey for giving us these gifts of memories forever frozen in time!!!  XOXO, Stefanie

  Baby Wynn + Eisley + Nathan + Madi | Newborn Session  

Zionsville, IN:  Our sweet friends & one of my absolute favorite families to photograph, recently welcomed their second baby girl into the world! We have adored Madi & Nathan since their engagement session & destination wedding day…now it is an honor to document these new happy milestones in their lives! Baby Wynn is as perfect as can be & big sister Eisley couldn’t be any cuter in her new role!  These little ladies are simply gorgeous…just like their beautiful Momma!  I could photograph them for hours!  Capturing this growing family in their home, during this sweet season of life, was a treat!  Madi & Nathan, we couldn’t be more proud of you both & thank you for allowing us to be a part of your world over the last several years!  Enjoy some of my favorite images from their most recent lifestyle session!  XOXO – Stefanie

  Baby Keegan + Jessica + Drew + Steve + Raven  

Avon, IN:  I had the honor of capturing this sweet family last month, after they recently welcomed their 3rd child into the world! Handsome little Keegan Matthew is already well loved by all…especially big sister Raven & older brother Drew, who are quite smitten!  It was a fun morning of getting to know this growing family & watching them interact while cuddling their new baby, navigating the busyness of having 3 kiddos in totally different stages & best of all, soaking up this special time in their lives! Jessica, it was SO very nice to finally meet you after many years of being “Online friends”…you were such a delight & a truly beautifully radiant Momma!  Enjoy my many favorites from this adorable session! – Stefanie
