| Lawrence Family 2018 |

Fall color this time of year is hard to find, but last weekend the Lawrence Family found some at 4-H Camp Palmer!  We headed out on a warm fall afternoon and found some beautiful places.  From grassy areas, to fences and beautifully colored trails, there were lots of smiles, laughter, hugs, and even a few bunny ears!  I had such a great time catching up with fellow high school classmates that I haven’t seen in years and hearing about what they are up to and where they are living these days!  After we graduate high school, time flies so fast and it’s easy to lose track of everyone, but it has been a wonderful Thanksgiving this year as I have been able to reconnect and catch up with so many wonderful friends!  Thank you Lawrence Family for a wonderful afternoon, Happy Holidays to all of you!

| Stucky Family 2018 |

Years and distance can make staying in touch with old friends difficult these days, but with the help of social media it’s made keeping up with others much easier!  I was happy to hear that an old friend of mine and her husband had welcomed a little boy eleven weeks ago and even more excited to find out that they were going to be back in the area over Thanksgiving!  We were able to find a time to sneak in a quick mini session as they were headed from one dinner to the next and though our time was short and we didn’t get to catch up as much as either of us would have liked, it was wonderful to meet her sweet family!  We were able to capture many of Reese’s sweet expressions and even a few of his mom and dad!  Over the last few months we have enjoyed reconnecting by sharing stories of our boys and giving advice to one another on things to try or what worked for us and it has been so nice to have another listening ear to bounce parenting questions off of!  Congrats Becca & Jacob, Reese is adorable!

| Reese Knapp AHS Senior 2019 |

Ice and snow is blanketing northwest Ohio today as schools close and many are heading for the warm indoors!  As sessions begin to wrap for the year and graphics projects and logo design are picking up, it was fun to spend one of my last 2018 sessions with Reese last weekend!  We headed south a little ways to his mom’s home town and were able to find some wonderful spots!  We had access to some amazing old barns, a gorgeous old ’39 John Deere B tractor, and when your grandpa is the fire chief for the local department, you head into the warm fire station after being out in the chilly for some indoor fun!  Thank you Reese for a fun Sunday afternoon, best of luck this year and in the coming fall!

| Wheeler Family 2018 |

I absolutely love this family!  Each time we get together there are so many laughs and smiles!  A location change due to excessive amounts of rain didn’t dampen our session, we found a spot on higher ground that worked out perfectly!  The weather was gorgeous for a fall day, cool, crisp, and we even had a great sunset of yellows to top it off!  Miss Moline is 6 months now and is so adorable!  She loved finding pieces of grass to share with us and had such sweet belly giggles too!  We even captured her with Mom and Dad in their perfectly coordinated plaid outfits, just right to help get us in the Holiday Spirit!  Thank you Wheeler Family for an amazing evening, can’t wait for our next session!

| Trevor Perry 6 Months |

.Pumpkins, tractors, leaves, and a cuddly, happy, and handsome little man in plaid were the perfect way to spend my Saturday!  I love when little ones look up and right into the camera, there is such an innocence in their big eyes, looking, watching, learning, and exploring everything around them, taking it all in!  Trevor loved playing with the little tractors and taking a taste of the gourds!  Seems like such a short time ago that we did his newborn session, he has grown so much, looks just like his big sister Emma, and I look forward to watching him grow!  Happy Half Birthday Trevor!

| Crossgrove Family 2018 |

One of my favorite things is hot chocolate and our weather has been perfect for it!  What a better way to warm up at our Saturday morning session than with yummy hot chocolate and whipped cream!?  I met up with the Crossgrove Family just down from their home and we had a gorgeous morning and the light was perfect for their session!  The sun was peaking up behind the horizon and bringing to life everything around it.  I’ve known Jodi since before high school and was so excited to capture her and her beautiful daughter!  We had lots of laughs, a little whipped cream fight, and so many amazing smiles, it was a session for the record books!  This session will fill you with such happiness and give you all those warm fuzzy feelings!  I love nothing more than capturing a family all while catching up and reminiscing with a wonderful friend!  Thank you Crossgrove Family for such an amazing fall session!

| Raegan Sell 2 Years |

Raegan is 2!  When did that happen?!  Seems like it was just yesterday we did a family session for her and her family and she wasn’t very old!  She has such a sweet personality and was full of lots of adorable and funny faces for us last Saturday morning!  Fall has brought much cooler temperatures in the mornings and night, but it didn’t seem to bother Raegan at all, she was ready to explore and take on the world!  Whether we had cows around or not, she was sure to find one!  Her cute farm dress was perfect with her boots and jean jacket, she was ready to find what hid around every corner of the barns!  Happy Birthday Raegan, thank you for such a wonderful session, you kept me on my toes!

| Beaverson Back To School 2018 |

It’s been a few years since the Beaverson’s have been in front of the camera, but you would never have known, it was just like it had been yesterday!  A few weeks ago you saw their brother Hunter’s senior session, but last Sunday morning it was their turn!  We headed to a local barn with gorgeous grass and a beautiful fall light all around us!  As the fields are emptying and the colors changing, we bundle up just a bit more and smiled and laughed to keep us warm!  It’s been a beautiful fall and so many more wonderful sessions still to come, but what a wonderful session with great kids, thank you all for a great start to a fall morning!

| Alt Family 2018 |

Combines are in the fields all around us, gravity wagons bounce down the roads behind tractors and trucks, and fall color has finally arrived!  I was lucky enough to spend part of my weekend with the beautiful Alt Family at our local living history museum, Sauder Village!  Their two gorgeous girls were full of stories, giggles, and lots of kisses for Mom and Dad!  They helped us to pick out some great spots in the Village and seeing their smiles made us all warm and fuzzy on a cool and crisp day!  We explored the Village and checked out their newest edition of the 1920s and took advantage of the cool green colors of the weeping willow before heading off to find the fall foliage.  Thank you Alt Family for a wonderful Saturday afternoon and Happy Fall to all!

| AHS & RHS Alumni Band 2018 |

Homecoming season is here and with that comes special halftime shows and activities for all of our local schools and bands.  I once again had the honor of capturing my alama mater’s alumni band this year!  The AHS/RHS Alumni Band was strong with many members returning to help celebrate homecoming and to pick up their instruments one more time!  Having been a member of the Marching Bluestreaks in high school, I know that the traditions run deep, the pride is strong, and there’s nothing like the sound of the drum cadences while marching!  It was amazing to see so many alumni standing next to current marching band students and to hear all of them together made you proud.  What a wonderful job by all alumni, students, and those whom helped to bring the evening together, looking forward to next year!  Thank you AHS/RHS members for an amazing evening, you sounded great!
