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 […]

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 […]

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. You better believe I’ve whipped out my camera on my fresh new baby girl too and her doting sisters though. Most […]

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 […]
