| Jack Ordway THS Senior 2021 |

The weather has been great these last few weekends for sessions and Jack’s senior session was no exception!  We had a slight chill and beautiful golden hour!  From downtown Defiance to a dead end road, we found great spots perfect for his Jeep.  Jack has decided to join the Army after high school and will be heading out in the summer of 2021, joining his brother who is also a member of the military.  A great young man with a bright future!  Thank you Jack for a wonderful evening, best of luck this coming year, and thank you for your service!

| Grooms Family 2020 |

Fall brings such wonderful colors to the crisp cool air!  While some areas have many leaves left on the trees, others have become bare so quickly.  Crops are disappearing from the fields and doorsteps are now decorated with corn stalks, pumpkins, scarecrows, and mums.  Last weekend I headed out to a local woods with the Grooms Family, another of our yearly sessions that is always eventful with Mason’s antics and the gorgeous smiles from Addie & Olivia.  We found so many great areas of color, it was hard to decide on just one place to capture them!  They have grown so much over the years, I am soon to be the shortest among them!  Thank You Grooms Family for a fun evening!

| Sell Family 2020 |

Agriculture is a large part of our area, farming, livestock, and all that they encompass are essential to so many.  Our area schools have wonderful FFA programs and it takes a great individual to take one of the programs on.  I have been lucky enough to get to know our school districts FFA Advisor Ryan and his family over the years and we spent a fun afternoon capturing the fall colors with them!  From pumpkins and straw bales to trampoline bouncing and swings, the girls looked beautiful and we caught so many funny faces and smiles!  Thank you Sell Family for a fun evening!

| Britenriker Family 2020 |

As we reach mid October it’s hard to know if there will be color on the trees or color on the ground, but last weekend we were lucky enough to have some beautiful yellows and reds on the trees for the Britenriker Family’s session! With eleven kids, eight adults, a couple dogs, and some roaming chickens, we had lots of smiles and laughs in such a beautiful setting! Their navy, gold, and burgundy outfits coordinated perfectly with the brilliant yellows we found back on the trail in the woods.  It’s hard to believe it’s been six years since we last captured this group, they have grown by leaps and bounds!  Thank You Britenriker Family for a wonderful evening!

| Erin Reichert Senior 2021 |

Heart, kindness, determination, and beauty, just a few of the words that describe 2021 Senior, Erin!   We spent a cool, crisp fall evening at their home, downtown, and off to our local campground for her session.  There wasn’t one place that Erin didn’t rock and knock it out of the park; with cloudy skies and soft golden light, we had a wonderful time, choosing just a few to sneak was no easy task!  While school looks different for everyone this year, that hasn’t stopped this senior from making the best of things and loving every minute of it.  Erin is bound for great things and it has been a pleasure to be able to capture just a small part of it.  Best of luck this year Erin, can’t wait to see what your future holds!

| Moser Family 2020 |

Fall colors have quickly changed and the leaves are falling!  Last Saturday we had a gorgeous, cool day and I had the pleasure of working with the Moser Family, a family that I have known since I was little.  Fellow photographer Cody, his mom, dad, and younger brother Garrett made the evening such fun, so many smiles and laughs!  Getting to work with and capture other photographers and their families is an amazing thing; in a business where there seems to be so much dislike among one another, I love to get to know, share, learn from, and grow with others!  Thank you Moser Family for a great fall evening, can’t wait to catch up again soon!

| Zoe Castillo AHS Senior 2021 |

The leaves are changing, the weather is cooling, and signs of fall are all around us.  This also means getting to spend time with area seniors as we capture their senior photos!  Last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting up with Zoe and walking a local downtown to find the perfect spots for her before we headed out to hit the trails of a Goll Woods, a state nature preserve.  It was a beautiful day, with gorgeous evening light and a dramatic golden hour!  I’ve been lucky to work with Zoe each fall through the AHS Marching Band and their numerous activities.  Her beautiful smile lit up every picture; from brick wall to a wildflower patch, she was stunning!  Thank you Zoe for a wonderful evening, best of luck in your Senior Year!

| Zirkes Family 2020 |

Fall is finally here and the weather has been beautiful!  While this year has been unusual to say the least, it has been refreshing to see so many familiar faces!  Two years ago I met Alicia and Matt for their maternity session, they were complete strangers to me then, but today, they are wonderful friends whom I love catching up with!  They recently moved to the Cleveland area, but I was so excited to meet up with them while they were here visiting family.  Warren has grown so much and has such an adorable personality and a love for dinosaurs that you can see we had his dad use to help get him to smile!  We picked up right where we left off and it was so refreshing to see them, laugh, and smiles together.  Thank you Zirkes Family for an amazing evening, can’t wait for our next session!

Quinones Family 2020 |

As summer is winding down and we start getting ready for hoodies, pumpkins, and fall colors, there is still so much summer beauty around us!  I met up with the Quinones Family at a local woods where we found gorgeous greens and sweet little yellow flowers!  It’s been a few years since we captured this adorable family and they did not disappoint!  Mila helped me to pose her mom and dad and even got some fabulous smiles from them; we even caught a natural sun flare!  It’s been an honor to watch this sweet family grow since photographing Mila as a newborn; thank you Pops, Jo, and Mila for a wonderful evening!
