| Reynolds Family 2021 |

2021 is the year of extended family sessions! So many families didn’t get together last year due to the pandemic, so they have decided to make up for it this year with photo sessions and we couldn’t love it more! Capturing all these amazing people this summer and fall is going to be such fun, so many smiles and hugs all around. The Reynolds Family brought so much life to their session that it was contagious! With a sweet new little one to the antics from the adults, it was a wonderful afternoon! They battled a windy day, but that didn’t stop the smiles and love that abounded from them all. It has been a few years since we captured this sweet family, the kids are a little taller now, some even close to or surpassing them! Thank you Reynolds Family for a great day!

| Crossgrove Family |

Here in Northwest Ohio the area is full of farmland, from cattle and pigs, to corn, beans, wheat. Farming runs deep in many families, including ours, with the next generation already learn the rains. Last weekend I was honored to have spent some time with the Crossgrove Family, a family we have been lucky enough to have known through school, farming, and fair for many years! They had gathered to celebrate their parent’s 50th Anniversary and topped the day off with an extended family session! It’s wonderful to capture a large group and be able to break down into individual families and capture their personalities. So many great images from their session and it was great to catch up with everyone, thank you Crossgrove Family for a wonderful evening and Happy 50th!

| Jace Hamman 6 Months |#

The first year of a little one’s life flies by so fast, we blink and they are no longer infants, but crawling and then quickly walking. It seems like just a few weeks ago we captured Jace at three months, but last weekend he was in studio with his sweet smile for his six month milestone! Such a peanut and looking more and more like his big brother with each session. He gave us lots of smiles and even snuggled into big brother Jensen for a quick picture before we wrapped for the day. The next three months will go by fast and Jace will be back for his 9 month session! Thank you Jace and Jenson for a fun afternoon!

| Skye Cinema 2021 |

It’s that time of year again when our local movie theater is hosting a Free Family Film Festival! With the uncertainty of last year, many of our normal activities were cancelled or postponed, so the festival wasn’t able to be held, but this year they are back and ready for families to kick back and enjoy the family time that so many didn’t get to enjoy last year! We have loved getting to work with Skye Cinema over the years in creating their posters and look forward to seeing what films they will be showing next year! Take a break from the heat and head out for a great family movie!

| Jace Hamman 3 Months |

Say hello to little Jace!  He and big brother Jensen stopped in for his 3 month milestone session last weekend and what a little man he is!  Jace loves to have his hands up and is ready to hit the fields with his dad, though he may have to change his shirt, lol.  😉  We were even able to get some smiles from Jensen and Jace at the same time, just look at these handsome boys!  What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon and we are looking forward to Jace’s 6 month session already!

| Matt & Allie Baker 2021 |

As we start to return to normal after a year of so many changes, we were honored to be able to spend last Sunday with Matt & Allie as they said “I Do” in a very quaint and beautiful ceremony of close family and friends!  Matt’s love for Allie radiated during their bridal portraits and Allie’s smile was contagious and never ending when Matt arrived!  He even brought her bouquet to their first look for her and it was absolutely stunning!  We were lucky to have a beautiful spring day for outdoor photos, a little wind, but that didn’t stop Allie from smiling!  After their ceremony guests enjoyed gorgeous and delicious cupcakes and yummy appetizers.  It was a wonderful day for a sweet couple!  Thank you Matt & Allie, wishing you all the best!

| Graicen Siler DHS Senior 2021, Winter Session |

This winter we have had more snow than in previous years and the fields around us have looked so nice with their blanket of white!  Graicen had mentioned wanting to do a snow session for part of her senior photos and we were lucky to have a beautiful weekend of snow, sunshine, and mild temperatures; so we headed out to the woods for some fun in the freshly fallen powder!  She once again rocked her session, there is nothing we can’t do that she doesn’t make look amazing.  Thank you Graicen for the honor of capturing your senior year, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!

| Caleb Ranzau AHS Senior 2021 |

Last weekend we wrapped up our 2020 photo season with AHS Senior Caleb!  It’s been a fantastic year with amazing clients and outstanding images!  We started out in our small hometown of Ridgeville Corners, added in some cute fur babies, and then headed to Archbold and the football field for some football and band photos.  Football has played a large part in not only Caleb’s life, but his whole family’s; he’s even had the opportunity to have his uncle on the sidelines as one of his coaches!  I first met Caleb several years ago as a first year 4-H member in our club, it’s hard to believe that he’s a senior already and I look forward to seeing what the future has in store for him!  Thank you Caleb and family for a great evening and helping us to finish up the 2020 season!

| Beaverson Back To School 2020 |

As we head into the Holiday Season after what can only be described as a year like no other, we look forward to enjoying the lights, music, and many festivities around the surrounding communities.  On a warm Friday after Thanksgiving we headed out to capture the Beaverson’s 2020 back to school session!  It’s been an honor to capture the Beaverson Family over the years from school photos to senior sessions; the kids have changed so much and it’s always exciting to see where life will take them next!  Thank you Beaverson’s for the honor of being a part of your family’s milestones!

| Elijah Wolf NHS Senior 2021 |

We have had some beautiful days this November, but I’m sure that cold weather will be here before we know it!  Though it was a bit chilly last weekend, that didn’t stop us from capturing this handsome young man!  I can’t believe Elijah is a senior, I’ve known him since he was small and it’s been a joy to watch him grow into a kind, funny, and genuine guy!  We found some amazing places in the alleyways of Napoleon and he showed me some trails by the river that I never knew were there and can’t wait to use again.  His guitar made for the perfect accessory, he even played a few tunes for us as we were out and about!  I can’t wait to see where the future takes him Elijah, thank you for an amazing evening!
