| Wheeler Family 2019 |

 

The Wheeler Family, so sweet, kind, funny, and generous!  I love them!  I have had the pleasure of watching Noah and Christine in their dating years, celebrating their wedding, capturing their maternity, meeting little Miss Mo at just six days old for her newborn session, and watching them become amazing parents.  There is so much love in their eyes and emotions when they look their sweet girl and she gives it right back, in every dance move she gives them!  Their yearly family session is just one of the many that I look forward to, seeing how they have changed and grown, the belly laughs, and the adorable grins from Mo.  We had a beautiful, cool, and slightly blustery fall morning for their session, but Noah found a creative way to help block that wind and keep Miss Mo smiling!  Our lives are busy with work, family, and daily routines and we don’t get to see each other or talk enough, but it’s so much fun when we do see each other and can pick up where we left off!  Wheeler Family you are amazing, Happy Fall to you all!

| German Family 2019 |

Fall was in the air last week, this week we are back in the temperatures of the 80s and 90s, but the leaves are starting to change!  Last weekend I was honored to spend the afternoon with the German Family!  A wonderful extended family session full of adorable families, sweet grand kids, and amazing facial expressions from the little ones.  We met up at Sauder Village, our local living history museum that has amazing places for photos, from weeping willows and grassy places, to an old mill and wonderful old homes!  The kids did great and were thrilled to see the horse and her pony at the end of the session, brought lots of big smiles and laughter from all of them!  We found beautiful sunflowers and enjoyed walking through the Village that we had all to ourselves!  Thank you German Family for a fantastic afternoon!

| Trey Siler 2019 |

This handsome guy with sweet dance moves has just kicked off his freshman year!  I adore our sessions and conversations together, he has such a huge heart and is one of the sweetest guys around.  We headed out to Independence Dam this year and it did not disappoint!  We found some amazing drift wood that had clearly been in the water for a while and there were also some steps just along the shore of the river that had one time led up the wall, perfect for Trey!  I can’t wait to see what this year brings for Trey, best of luck in school!

| Brok Burtch 2019 |

Seeing how much kids change in such a short time is amazing, yearly sessions are a great way to capture those quick changes and I love getting to see clients each year!  Brok’s session was a blast as always, he knows how to keep you on your toes and a smile on your face the whole time!  You might remember him from last year’s session with his famous hot dog shirt; this year he dazzled us with a sweet reptile on a bike at the beach shirt, just as adorable and fits his personality perfectly.  He seems to have grown about a foot since last year and definitely catching up to me!  We walked along the river and found some perfect spots, beautiful trees, and a great broken tree for Brok to climb, the perfect way to end his session as he climbs into the new school year!

| Zirkes Family 2019 |

Just over a year ago a message from a mom to be that I had never met looking for a last minute maternity session appeared in my inbox; she was so sweet and beyond excited to welcome their little one in a few short weeks!  I will be forever grateful that she took that leap and left that message!  It has been so much fun to get to know Alicia, Matt, & Warren over the last year, such a fun couple with an adorable little guy and I couldn’t wait to help them celebrate his first birthday with a family session.  We headed out to Providence Metropark in Grand Rapids, Ohio last weekend and with great weather after some humid days, it was perfect.  Warren did so well, we saw lots of smiles, giggles, and playing in the dirt!  I look forward to many more wonderful sessions with the Zirkes Family in the future, thank you Alicia for sending that message and Happy 1st Birthday Warren!

| Reichert Family 2019 |

I knew the moment that I met Beth, that we were going to have a wonderful family session with her crew!  She had so many wonderful ideas and we were able to combine our thoughts for this amazing outcome!  The Reichert Family is prepping to send their oldest daughter off to Yale in the next few days and before everyone went their separate ways and school starts back up, they wanted to make sure to do an updated family session!  We met at the always gorgeous Sauder Village Campground where the grasses were green, the weather was comfortable, unlike the sweltering heat we had just he week before, and their family was so full of laughter, smiles, and inside jokes that you couldn’t help but smile right along with them!  Thank you Reichert Family for such a wonderful summer evening!

| Zach & Kenzie Engagement |

Spring is here!  However while there are still many places with little color, there are others with lush green grass and budding trees!  I am so excited to capture the wedding of Zach & Kenzie this coming August and last weekend we met in Grand Rapids, Ohio for their engagement session!  Providence Park was still hibernating, but after finding several wonderful spots, we headed to the always beautiful Nazareth Hall where their wedding reception will be held!  Even though it was only a few miles away from our starting point, there were gorgeous green grasses and the grotto was perfect!  After some great captures of the two of them, we tuned the engagement session into a mini family session and added in their beautiful little girl!  With a smile from ear to ear, you couldn’t be anything but happy around her!  Zach & Kenzie are such a sweet couple and I can’t wait to spent their special day with them!  Congratulations you two!
