Beth Fletcher Photography » Natural Light Photographer

I’m so thankful for families like the Drake family. They choose me to capture their family year after year and each time it becomes more and more intimate. I am honored to capture their littles ones as they grow.

We tried something different from our usual and went to the beach. It was just FUN. There’s no other word to describe it. Jaxon LOVED the water and it wasn’t too long before he was soaked but Mom and Dad just let it go and they enjoyed their family time, as I captured it.

I love the results.

Family Sunset Session:

  • mona drake - I love it beth…couldn’t ask for a better photographer. You are amazing. Thank you for always being so patient with my kids and capturing truly awesome memories.

Three important rules when you are a Mom with a love for photography:

1. learn how to use your camera – really learn, not just guess.
2. always know where your camera is
3. don’t instruct, don’t interrupt play, just let them be.


I notice Clara sitting on my bed sitting with the iPad.

  • Sarah Halsteaed - Love this Beth. So beautiful. Also I love your room, the light is amazing!!

I think it’s important to warn you before you begin viewing these images that you may be over come by all of the cute. This family was a dream to work with and was my second family session while in Austin, during my visit to Texas, back in May.

The Tong family volunteered for me to photograph them while I was mentoring a fellow photographer on how to do sunset sessions. I’m so thankful they saw the model callout on Facebook because they were the sweetest, most gracious family. They were seriously dreamy.

Just like their session…

First, here are two images of my mentoring student working behind the camera. Isn’t she cute?


See? I told you she was cute!

And here’s even MORE cuteness for you. (I swear I spoil you guys sometimes.)

Okay, so this session did not take place in Northwest Indiana. This beautiful session was my first of four sessions on my trip to Austin, Texas in May.

I met Lisa “virtually” many, many years ago. We met in real life in Chicago a fear years ago, I’ve essentially watched her family grow from  many miles away. I was so excited to photograph this beautiful family. Lisa emailed me with concerns that her family may be too crazy for me, but I reassured her … “don’t worry, Lisa. I got this!” Needless to say, her children and I “clicked” instantly and I’m excited to share one of my prettiest sessions with you right now!

P.S. I loved Austin, it was beautiful and interesting and also, I loved Torchy’s Tacos and haven’t stopped thinking about their queso since I left. Amen.
