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 […]

That Golden Light… When MacKenzie reached out in August to set up a family session, I knew that this crew would be special. Anytime I feel hesitation or worry from a mom, I completely understand. With twin four year olds, she was just hoping that their session produced a few print worthy images. Their experience in […]

Two weekends ago, I wrapped up my final group of fall mini sessions. Being a family photographer can be exhausting towards the end of peak fall season. Spending some of the most beautiful fall evenings away from your own family to capture memories of others. Editing my little heart out to produce the final images. […]

There is nothing better than fall color in Ohio. It’s not always easy to find a place with beautiful color that is easily accessible for clients, but when I did a few photoshoots here last year I knew that I would be coming back! These four families brought so much joy into my camera last […]

Families, like branches in a tree, we all grow in different directions, yet our roots remain as one.  -Unknown I’ve had the pleasure of capturing Kelli & Jason’s girls since they were very little. When Kelli asked me to photograph her whole family after capturing a few adorable moments with her two daughters earlier this year, […]
