9 months… he’s been in our arms almost as long as we were anticipating his arrival. I know the common thought right now is how thankful we are that 2020 is out the door… that it was a heck of a year, and we’re glad it’s over. But I can’t get on that train (not […]
To know this sweet trio is to love them. They make the most gorgeous little family, and I’m pretty much obsessed with this sweet baby. David is from Wisconsin, which is my favorite accent to (terribly) imitate. 😂 They are the kind of clients that I’m going to force to be my friends – this […]
The most lovable baby is 8 months old today. I know that we (as in, the entire world) haven’t been big fans of 2020. But as we close this year out, I can’t help wanting to shout from the rooftops what a wonderful year this actually was. When we were pregnant with him, we had […]
These four were SO much fun – Oliver and Milo were pure entertainment, and Rachael and Drew are THE CUTEST. But seriously. Rachael.😍
You’ve seen this handsome face and this family before, years ago. They’ve changed a bit over the years, including the addition of this CUTEST BOY. OHMYGOSH. I love story sessions – even mini sessions can tell the best parts of your family’s days. I love how you can almost hear these photos. The sounds of […]
I love being a Cincinnati motherhood photographer. Whether it’s a Fresh 48 or newborn session, or a session made just for mommas and their babies, I LOVE photographing these moments. Alyssa was made to be a momma – it was a gift to document the way she loves on her baby girl.
As a Cincinnati newborn photographer, one of my favorite things to photograph are their teensy features. And also that newborn hair. Oh my goodness. 😍 Annie is the most precious little thing. And her parents are madly in love with her. It’s one of the best things to witness.
Meet the Snyders. We almost rescheduled this session due to terribly strong winds, but after a brief chat with Megan, we decided to gamble and hope for the best, and I am so thankful we did. P.S. … this light that is hitting these four so perfectly was a natural sun flare and I AM […]
I am thankful for every chance I get to photograph this family. It all started with their engagement photos and their wedding (where I was target to a rogue firework (it really happened!)) – over the years, I’ve gotten to help them document so many sweet memories! What an honor!! I am obsessed with shooting […]
Storytelling sessions are about capturing moments, not poses. It’s about documenting what your days look like and also what these moments feel like. It’s a way to remember the things we might take for granted today that won’t last forever. “The big shiny moments get all of the recognition, but it’s the small ones that […]
Oh, it’s been the most wonderful 7 months with this perfect boy. He is the happiest baby, always giggling and smiling at us. Even when we’re at our most frustrated, he offers the sweetest smiles and turns it right around. However, when he has an opinion (usually about food), he lets us know. There is […]
I was SO thankful to get to photograph this family. They are near and dear to our family, and we are so thankful for them. They are four of our favorite people, and we so enjoy our time with them. Having them in front of my camera was no exception. Okaaaay Lori. What a babe. […]
I LOVE THESE THREE. Ahem. I mean, wow, aren’t they the cutest? 😆 I have had the absolute privilege to photograph them a number of times. From their engagement and wedding, to the celebration of a new home, the anticipation of a new baby, and the arrival of the sweetest boy, I have been HONORED […]
Do you guys remember my sweet baby Kimber? Well, that sweet baby is now a FIRST GRADER. Oh my goodness. Anyway, we took a few Kindergarten graduation photos earlier this fall. We also shot some sweet sister photos of Kimber and her baby sister Kelsea. Kelsea and my girl Winnie were due 2 days apart […]
I adore Callie and her parents. And I am so thankful for the opportunity to photograph them year after year. This sweet girl is almost exactly 6 months older than my girl Winnie, and it’s always so much fun to photograph her for her birthday each year. Callie’s momma has become such a sweet friend […]
I truly love photographing proposals. And I really love shooting at Devou Park, especially this overlook. 😍 I’ve been shooting proposals for almost 10 years, and I’m proud to be able to bring a certain expertise to it. When Obi and I talked about his afternoon with Rylee, I was excited to get to help […]
How? How have we already had you in our arms for 6 months? We are as far from meeting you as we are to celebrating your first birthday, and that is mind-boggling. This month has been our most consistent, routine month yet. It’s been so much fun to fall in to new rhythms as a […]
I truly love photographing proposals. I’ve shot a number over the years, and they remain one of my favorite things to be a part of. It’s been a while since I was a wedding photographer, but getting to shoot these keeps me connected to that world, and I love it. One of my favorite parts […]
Turning pain into praise. This family has had the unfortunate opportunity of doing just that. But goodness, they are doing it beautifully. When you watch someone journey this life the way that these two are, there is no denying the presence of our King. He is writing a story that is bigger than we can […]
FIVE MONTHS! This was a big month for our sweet boy. His big sister celebrated a birthday, and the weeks leading up to it kept us all on our toes. This mister man made some big strides in the meantime. He has found his hands and his feet, and I don’t know which he loves […]
4 years Four. How is it possible to be here already? But I am so thankful for every day with this girl. She is a firecracker. She has grown and changed in the biggest ways this year. Her vocabulary is so big, and her personality is even bigger. Last year, when she turned three, I […]
These four are four of my favorite to photograph. I’ve had the privilege of having them in front of my camera a handful of times, and each time is better than the last. Their boys are SO CUTE. When I shot this session earlier this year (sweet baby Judah is already FIVE months old!), big […]
I can’t believe I’m already writing a four-month post. This little man of ours is a joy and a light, and it’s hard to believe he’s been in our arms for four months. But, at the same time, it’s hard to believe he hasn’t been here forever. This month has been a busy one for […]
Taken from Calla’s homecoming celebration announcement… “Calla’s vision is one of color and sparkle, glitter and glam, so please expect nothing less as we honor her beautiful heart and praise God for the forever impact she has made on each of us.” Calla, sweet girl, I think your vision was accomplished. This day was one […]
I’ve been doing this for almost 15 years. I’ve been given the gift of telling family stories … photographing babies as they grow, parents as they love. I’ve had the privilege to be a part of lives and celebrations filled with so much joy. There have been many moments I’ve photographed with tears in my […]
dear calla, I met your dad first. My husband, Shane, had recently taken a job at the church, and your dad was one of the first people he connected with. They got along right away – they have so much in common. First, their similar, goofy personalities that seem to come out the most when […]
For a year, I have tried to write about this. 365 days of trying to put words to a grief I’ve never experienced… and a redemption that I didn’t know my soul needed. Then I found this: “And I did not know that in the middle of much pain and grief and loss, I would […]
This month has been my favorite one yet. This month, our little guy’s personality has really started to peak through. He’s been giving us genuine happy smiles, and he has started cooing back to us when we talk to him. He adores his big sister, and is always scanning the room, looking for her. He’s […]
This month has been a big one for our boy. He’s grown leaps and bounds (currently filling out his 3-6 month clothes), and he’s been giving us some of the sweetest smiles. Towards the end of my pregnancy, I was diagnosed with polyhydramnios – having excess amniotic fluid. We checked for the obvious and more […]
I wasn’t sure I wanted to blog our boy’s monthly photos and milestones… I’ve pulled back on how much I share my babies on the internet, and while I still post some photos of them on my Instagram, I am working hard to protect them from being over-shared online. That being said, I know how […]
I have been so thankful for the families I have met solely through this work of mine. I adore this family, and if it weren’t for photography, I don’t know if our paths would have ever crossed. But they did years ago, and for that I am grateful.
I was so excited to get to photograph this sweet family at Richwood on the River. As a storyteller photographer, children and families are my favorite people to have in front of my camera. And when the kids are this cute, it just makes my job that much easier. :)
I absolutely love when I get to photograph families year after year. It’s fun to see little ones change through photos, and I am honored to get to help document these seasons. This sweet family was no exception.
Jenny is one of the most driven entrepreneurs I’ve met, and this is especially evident in her business, The Elderberry Co. We shot some branding images at her shop, and then went on to the The Root for some less specific headshot style photos.
Shooting branding sessions isn’t something I do a lot of, but I love it when I get the opportunity. Especially when it’s for local, small businesses like The Elderberry Co.
If you’ve been around here for any amount of time, you know that this family is a regular favorite of mine. I love getting to mark time with their family photos and their sweet girl’s birthday photos every year. I am FOREVER thankful for the three of them.
I absolutely love motherhood and getting to photograph it, and I absolutely love this session. These two melted my heart from the minute we began.
OH THIS FAMILY. They make my heart smile. :) These three fit who I am as a photographer, and when you find people like that to photograph, you never let them go.
Every time I get to photograph this sweet couple, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude. They are now THREE of my favorite people to document, and it’s such an honor to witness some of their biggest life moments. Also, friends, I cannot say enough about the importance and joy of fresh 48 sessions. These moments and memories […]
I am so thankful with every opportunity to photograph this sweet family. From their engagement to their wedding to their family sessions since, I have loved every chance I’ve had to photograph them.
I have adored this family from day one. When asked to come back and photograph them again, I may have literally JUMPED at the opportunity. Can we talk about this house for a minute? 😍
We are celebrating our sweetest girl’s golden birthday this year. This year, more than ever, we are fully aware that each birthday is a precious gift. We will never be sad to see her grow up, even if we wish we could sit in these moments with her just a little longer. She is quickly […]
3 years It is hard to believe she’s turning three. When I took her two-year photos last year, I had no idea what was going to unfold over the next 365 days. 2019 has been the hardest year of our lives, but she has been such a light for us this year. She is such […]
Hi friends. I know it’s been a minute since I’ve been around. It’s been a whirlwind of a summer. It’s possibly been the hardest summer of our lives, but it’s also been one of the best. Here’s a quick recap: Shane was offered a job at Lakeside Christian Church in Northern Kentucky, and we are […]
I adore photographing motherhood, even if it means just squeezing a few minutes in at the end of a family session. Not to mention, this sweet family has been a favorite of mine from day one.
Every one-year-old should be celebrated with cake and photos. In fact, every birthday should be celebrated this way! I am certain that all mommas would agree that our babies grow and change so quickly. So, really, documenting each year with a birthday session (and some sweet treats) is nothing short of necessary! Avery is a […]
As a children’s photographer, I was SO excited about photos for this family. I was honored to photograph this family in their beautiful home shortly after they became a family of four. It was only a few weeks after Winnie was born, and I felt a beautiful kinship. And now, they are a family of […]
Shooting birthday photos is something I love to do. Babies – no matter the age – are always so much fun to celebrate. Olivia made her debut in front of my camera when she was only about 24-hours old, and here we are, one year later! Olivia, it was a joy to celebrate your birthday […]
Callie and her momma and daddy are some of my favorite people to photograph. I love celebrating her birthday with her every year with our annual birthday session – this year, she turned THREE, and I had so much fun shooting these photos. Sweet Callie is so much like my Winnie – they are less […]
I was honored to shoot Rylee’s birth, so it was especially exciting to be invited back to photograph her Fresh 48 session. Thank you all so VERY much for having me.
