We started their wedding day at Deed’s Point, and it was a perfect setting for their first look. A momma is always a momma, even on her wedding day. 🥰 That just married feeling. 🤩🥰 Top of the Market in Dayton is a GORGEOUS location for a wedding.

Oooh this family. This wonderful, incredible family. ♥ I have know them since these cuuuute boys were Winnie’s age. I was so lucky to be hired as a nanny for them many years ago, and it was such a season of growth and learning (for all of us involved 😆🥰). I love them dearly, and […]

THESE THREE! 🥰 I love ’em. They arranged these photos as a gift to their momma, and I think it’s the most special idea. I know how much I adore photos of my babies… I can only imagine how I would love something like this when they are all grown up! It’s a pretty special […]
Oh my, Bailey and Michael. 😍 Maybe I’m a little biased, but I do think these two are THE CUTEST. Michael is my cousin, and I’ve thought he’s just the cutest boy ever since he was born. Bailey is gorgeous and so sweet, and goodness, this session was just SO MUCH FUN. These two will […]

Motherhood is so incredible and so special, and it is my favorite thing to get to document. Annie is the sweetest momma to three beautiful boys, and it was an honor to get to take these photos of her with her newest little guy.
Oh, this sweet and perfect family. 🥰 I was so honored to document Annie and Bryan’s perfect wedding. Their wedding at Longworth Hall was one for the books, and I adored the time I spent with them. When they asked me to help tell this part of their story – life with 3 wonderful, perfect […]
Shooting proposals is at the top of my list of my favorite things to do. Being a Cincinnati proposal photographer is one of the best parts of my job. And getting to do this with people as incredible as Taylor and Hailey is the icing on the cake. Always one of the best parts… when the […]
As excited as I am about shooting weddings again, my passion will always be in motherhood sessions. I adore watching mommas love on their babies, no matter how old or brand new those sweet babies are. Kelsea and Sawyer were the most beautiful and the sweetest to document. I also LOVE photographing in homes – […]
Goodness, these two. 😍 As I’ve written this blog and tried to pare down the number of images I wanted to share, it’s been IMPOSSIBLE. They are the cutest, and I love all of these photos so much. Ryan and Ellen are getting married next year, and I CANNOT WAIT. 📸 I have a good […]
Shooting proposals is at the top of my list of my faaavorite things to do. Being a Cincinnati proposal photographer is one of the best parts of my job. And when my client is a groom picking a location like this 🤩 ummm hello. Cody and Shannon are two of the cutest ever, and Cincinnati’s […]
I wrote a similar post for Winnie, and while I don’t know how much I want to share publicly, I know I will be glad I put Archie’s story into words. I’m going to jump right into it. There’s a lot to share (it’s a small novel 😬), so I’m not going to mince words […]
I have had the privilege of taking this sweet girl’sbirthday photos every year. I just love getting to photograph her and her wonderful family. ❤ This age is so much fun. This girl is full of personality, and I love it. Happy birthday, Callie!! I can’t believe you’re already FIVE!!
When I asked Zach and Grace where they wanted their engagement photos, they said downtown New Albany and I was pumpeddddd. I’ve shot downtown before, and I NEVER get tired of it. I love revisiting places and challenging myself to find new angles and a new appreciation. Plus, there’s this Alley Cats mural, so I […]
Getting to photograph proposals is such a gift, and I’m not shy when it comes to the fact that I’m really dang good at it. 😆🤷 I love when my grooms-to-be trust me and ask my opinion because they know I know what I’m doing! And there’s nothing better than that. Can we talk about […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
