You may remember a magical tree farm maternity session that I had with the Marriett’s last month. If not, here it is! After meeting this kind and sweet family, I knew that their lifestyle newborn session was going to be a joy to photograph. As with any newborn session, you set a date knowing that […]

I’m finally ready to share my 2018 goals…even though we are a few weeks past New Year’s Day! I’m hear to tell you that you don’t need to have your entire year planned out on January 1. Though I was that girl for the past 15 years. I used to stress and mull over what […]

Last year, my Christmas mini sessions (HERE and HERE) were my most popular offering all year. As much as I wanted to do as many as I had done in 2016, I knew it wasn’t feasible this year. The fall season was busier than I’d ever been. Also, editing so many sessions caused me to […]

When Angelina first contacted me, she shared how much she wanted to do her maternity session at Young’s Dairy. She had been there on a class trip with her school earlier this fall and saw how beautiful the tree farm and barns would be. I had never photographed a session at Young’s or the Young […]

Contentment. The idea sounds nice, but is it attainable? Can we ever get to a place of pure, unadulterated contentment? This is part of what I hoped to find out during my contentment challenge this fall. Through the challenge, I committed to giving up shopping for myself and our home for 3 months. That included […]

When Kari first contacted me about doing their family session, we scheduled their session for a beautiful location in late fall. Mother nature and unforeseen circumstances caused us to push our session date twice. When our session date finally worked out, I was just so ready to meet this family! For late November, we really […]

While the Gharst family was in town over the Thanksgiving holiday, we were able to sneak their session in on Black Friday. Their lifestyle family session took place on Karen’s brother’s newly purchased farm. And we finished up right before a Thanksgiving dinner with extended family! Perfect timing. Brice & Karen are native Daytonians and […]

Remember that beautiful ballerina who graced my blog last month? If not, I’ve got it right here for your viewing pleasure. Being Sarah’s senior photographer has been a breath of fresh air during a very busy season for me. Her spirit & attitude during both photoshoots has made her sessions feel effortless and joy-filled. During […]

Do you ever get the chance to do something completely outside of your norm in your career? Being Sarah’s senior photographer was exactly that and I loved every minute of it! Her ballet senior session was so different from any other session I’ve ever done. I’m pretty sure I had to pick my jaw up […]

The Last Bits of Autumn Last weekend, I finally got to meet this family of three in person after corresponding via email for the past few months. I’m so glad our session date worked out. The cold and rain have swooped into southwest Ohio way too much this past month. Ashley’s vision for this session […]
