Marriett Christmas Family Session | Dayton Family Photographer | Something Old Dayton

“Christmas is like candy; it slowly melts in your mouth sweetening every taste bud, making you wish it could last forever.” Here I am, shamelessly sharing a Christmas family session in February! Just a little more than a year ago, Angelina & I were planning their Christmas tree farm maternity session and their lifestyle newborn […]

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. I could tell from her words how much she wanted to freeze time with this photoshoot to have these memories forever. In a way, it was a tribute […]

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

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 […]

Sunset Family Session | Tucker Family | Huber Heights, OH

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 […]

Lifestyle Family Session | Gharst Family | Xenia, OH

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 […]

Tipp City Lifestyle Photographer | Teague Family | The Last Bits of Autumn

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 […]
