Being able to share my voice is a gift I don't want to ever take for granted. This blog is a window to my heart & my business. You'll be able to enjoy my latest sessions & photography tips.  But I'll also be sharing more of my passions like pursuing a simpler lifestyle and personal images from our day to day.

Lifestyle Family Photographer | West Family | Dayton, OH

This sweet & kind family is my cousin with all of her boys. Emily & I have a long standing tradition that goes way back, like 25 years back. Each summer, we would often be together for an entire week and I still remember those fun weeks in Indiana. 6 cousins and nothing to do […]

Hayes Family | Dayton Family Photographer | Oakes Quarry Park

It is always an honor for a family to ask me to be their photographer. I don’t take it lightly because I know how much our family photos mean to me every single time we have them taken. They are a peak into our life as a whole family. Not mom or dad behind the […]

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 […]
