Year in Review – 2018

When I go back and review my goals for 2018, I’m reminded of how much progress I made this past year. I thought it would be hard to come up with specific victories that happened. Oftentimes, the past 12 months felt like a blur with almost constant demands of three young children and a business […]

How to Avoid Burnout as a Photographer | Photographer Burnout Tips

The first traces of fall make me literally giddy. The temps drop at night, there is a crispness in the air and I’m craving everything pumpkin. The changing leaves signify the start of a new season that includes some of my most favorite things…football, sweaters and boots. My least favorite thing…photographer burnout. Fall is the […]

Gorman Family | Dayton Family Photographer | Wegerzyn Gardens Metropark

I just loved this family session so much. Their sweet little boys were a riot. They never stopped moving and kept this session at Wegerzyn Gardens Metropark moving with them. This beautiful mama, Meghan, is a talented wedding photographer based out of Troy. We met through the local TuesdaysTogether group last year. Photographing another photographer’s family […]

Sunset Lifestyle Session|Gaston Family | London, OH

Shortly after a heartbreaking loss in their family this past winter, Jen emailed me wanting to set up a sunset lifestyle session at their farmhouse this summer.

Hill Family | Deployment Photoshoot | Dayton Family Photographer | Huber Heights, Ohio

When Janel asked me if I’d be interested in doing a deployment photoshoot before Ryan’s deployment, I was all over it! Getting the opportunity to serve & bless my military families is near and dear to my heart. They also happen to be one of my favorite military families. When I first photographed them almost […]

Folga Family Session | Dayton Family Photographer | Oakes Quarry Park | Fairborn Ohio

Anytime I go to a new location, I’m always a little apprehensive of how the photoshoot will go. I’m so used to my “favorite spots” at many of the local parks in the area. They’re like a hot cup of coffee while reading a book snuggled under a blanket on a rainy day. Lately, I’ve […]

Belickis Extended Family Session | Something Old Dayton Vintage Studio | Dayton Family Photographer

I’m…BACK!! I came out of maternity leave for a few sessions this spring and summer. It has been so nice to be behind my camera on these few occasions, including this extended family session.

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 […]

2018 Goals

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 […]

Christmas Mini Sessions | Dayton Family Photographer

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 […]
