Culver Tradition - Woodcraft Camp | Always Happy Life Photography

When you say Culver during the summer...all you have to mention is "Woodcraft Camp" or "Upper Camp" to many families (including ours) and they start to tell you how many kids in their family are at camp right now or have gone to camp over the years. It's a family tradition and I can't wait to see my own children have their experience at camp and see them grow through the years. I have to say I'm jealous of my husband, Ed, who went through Upper Camp and I love hearing the stories from his camp days. 

Pancho's family is one of those families...it's a tradition. All of his brothers and so many cousins are there with him...having the summer of a lifetime! All of the campers I work with have their own stories and Pancho's is that he was the Culver Woodcraft Drum Major. It's so fun to capture "my campers" in their role, in addition to their formal portraits and tell their story. I know Pancho's family will thoroughly enjoy their beautiful canvases and albums that I created for many years and they will bring back those sweet summer memories for years.

Culver Upper Camp - Drum Major Griffin P | Always Happy Life Photography

July 13, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Wooden Image Box - Culver Academies Portrait of Drum Major Griffin P. It's Homecoming weekend here for Culver Summer Schools & Camps...one of my favorite weekends to be here in Culver. It's always great to see so many alumni return to a place where they have some of the best memories of childhood.

Another one of my special projects from last summer was working with Griffin who was the Drum Major for Upper Camp. His Mom reached out to me while I happened to be at a parade and I quickly responded about how I loved the idea of capturing Griffin in his role for the summer as well as his Formal Portraits. Griffin is hoping to apply to the Naval Academy and I created an heirloom album and image box for him to use in his interviews. I know this is a gift from his parents he will treasure as the years pass and he thinks back to his days at Upper Camp.

Culver Woodcraft Camp - Loreto P. | Always Happy Life Photography

April 24, 2018  •  1 Comment

I love working with the same families and campers over the years...and watching them grow!

I first met Loreto during her very first summer at Woodcraft camp many, many, many years ago. Her Mama reached out to me again this past summer, as it was Loreto's final Gold C year at Woodcraft and she was named Regimental Commander. For those that don't know...that's the highest rank and honor!!! I absolutely LOVED capturing this for her, as I know the album will be an heirloom she will treasure forever, as well as the wall artwork her parents commissioned for her. Loreto's parents wanted to capture her in her element at camp, so that meant Parades and Retreats, a more lifestyle approach to her session versus a formal portrait session. 

ALL of my clients loved the idea of having the lifestyle element added to their portrait sessions last summer and so it is now my standard, thus why I only accept a very limited number of Culver Academies Summer School & Camps clients each summer. 

And oh yes...we made a video too for her to bring back those camp memories another way forever.  Something fresh and new from Always Happy Life Photography!

Sweet Summertime {The Hazelwood Family} - Always Happy Life Photography

April 11, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am ready for warmer weather.  It feels like winter is just toying with us as she sits back, watching with amusement. 45 on Monday, snow on Tuesday, and 70 by Friday. Sounds like Indiana to me!  I don’t know what the weather will bring, but I can tell you, without a doubt, I am dreaming of summer. 

AHL_1053{Always Happy Life}

In my quest to find a little warmth, I revisited the Hazelwood Family Session.

So much personality,

and so much warmer!

It was a perfect summer evening.  The sun was setting in all of its golden glory as three amazing kids explored around the woods and played on the farm. The warm sun, kids playing outside, and making family memories … it doesn’t get any more perfect than that.

Just a little wishful thinking and hoping Spring has finally arrived.

South Bend Indiana Twin Baby Newborn Child Portrait PhotographerTyler & Cameron - Twin Toddler Sweetness

Today is the day!!! Two years ago, these two little blessings decided it was their time to surprise their parents at 32 weeks after keeping their amazing Mama on bed rest for a very LONG time! Tyler and Cameron were tiny little babies when they first came to see me for their newborn session. I've had so much fun having them visit me in the studio throughout the last two years as part of the Always Happy Life Photography Baby Club. Thank you, Mary, for sharing your boys with me. I love how much their two year session shows both of their personalities off so well!

Hey Tyler...do you know how old we are?!?
