| Wendt Family 2022 |

Our summer sessions kicked off with the fantastic Wendt Family!  Full of smiles, laughter and some O-H-I-Os!  We started at the always beautiful Sauder Village Campground and made a final stop at the family home where they all sported their scarlet and gray.  The heat broke just in time for the weekend and made for a great evening.  Thank you Wendt Family for a wonderful evening!

| Grooms Family 2021 |

We cherish every single session and family we get to capture, especially our families that we see every year.  The Grooms Family, like every fall, did not disappoint in this year’s location of downtown Napoleon!  Only this time it felt more like we were doing senior photos for each of the kids instead of their yearly photos, they have all grown so much!  We also love to recreate a photo each year of the three just to see how much they change, it’s so much fun to compare from year to year.  It won’t be long before we really are doing senior photos, but for now we will enjoy the years of them all together!  Thank you Grooms Family for a wonderful and blustery afternoon!

| Graber Family 2021 |

Last weekend you got to enjoy the Unverferth Twins’ one year session, this week we get to share with you one of their extended families!  The Graber Family met up at the Sauder Village Campground on a beautiful fall day!  Little Lake Erie was a great backdrop for this fun family.  From bubbles abounding to a perfect home made fall blanket, there were lots of smiles from not only the twins, but grandma and grandpa too!  Capturing our Ridgeville families is one of or favorite things, and this fantastic crew didn’t disappoint.  Thank you Graber Family for a wonderful afternoon!

| Verhoff Family 2021 |

Grand Rapids, Ohio has always been a favorite spot for any session; the river, mill, downtown, and metro parks provide so many wonderful opportunities!  It was the perfect backdrop for the Verhoff Family last weekend to update their extended family photos and to grab a bite at the local pizza eatery after.  We may have had to wait out a few raindrops and showers, but once it cleared, we had perfect fall weather, adorable little ones, and a few adventurous adults exploring the river!  Thank you Verhoff Family for a fun afternoon!

| Unverferth Twins 1 Year |

Reegan & Paislee are turning 1!  I got to spend part of my Saturday morning with these two adorable girls and their mom and dad at Leaders Farms here in Henry County.  They were cute as pumpkins and did so well for their session!  We took over their stage for a bit, then out to the start of Scream Acres, and topped our time off with a double pumpkin cake smash.  While a little hesitant at first, after a little coaxing and help tasting from mom and dad, they investigated and started to enjoy!  These two pumpkins are almost fully on the move and in just a few short weeks they pumpkins will turn 1, Happy Birthday Reegan & Paislee!

| Burtch Family 2021 |

A rainy Saturday morning cleared off just in time for a beautiful, cool afternoon session with one of our favorites, the Burtch Family!  It’s been a couple years since we did updated photos of the whole family, and with one off to college and another not far behind, it’s never easy to coordinate everyone’s schedules.  We luckily found a date that worked for everyone and made the most of our afternoon before evening football games kicked off.  While walking around we found perfect spots at Pontiac Park and were even able to enjoy the music of rib fest playing in the background of downtown.  Family sessions allow for so many different combinations of groupings; from parents and kids, to just the kids, individuals of the kids, a recreation of a photo done each session, and anything else we can come up with!  Thank you Burtch Family for a wonderful afternoon!!!

| 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!

| Rohrs Family 2020 |

November has been unusually warm and we are all taking full advantage of it!  The color has almost completely disappeared from the trees, the crops are harvested, and Thanksgiving is just around the corner!  Last weekend I had the pleasure of capturing the Rohrs Family, a family that is very dear to our hearts because they are also part of our family.  We headed to their family farm to use their gorgeous red barns and then headed out to their woods to find some color and even see where Tyler dropped his first deer from his tree stand that you see in their sneaks!  Growing up just down the road form one another, enjoying horse rides, farming, and even polka dances together, we love spending time with them all; Luke, Heather, Tyler, and Abbi all played a part in our wedding, we enjoy hearing Luke play and sing in the family polka band, and he is my favorite polka dance partner!  They all have hearts of gold and love our kids like their own, they’ll do anything for you, and I couldn’t have been more excited when they asked to do a family session this fall.  Even though we didn’t have much of a sunset to end the evening, we still captured a wonderful silhouette with the farm behind them; Thank You Rohrs Family for a wonderful evening!

| Wheeler Family 2020 |

My time with the Wheeler Family never disappoints, this year we went off roading!  A good reminder to always come prepared, or at least bring a 4×4 😉  Little Miss Moline has grown so much since last year’s session!  We headed out to their woods and found some great spots that hadn’t gotten too wet from the previous days rains.  Miss Mo hammed it up for the camera and couldn’t have been any cuter; we even did her traditional John Deere pedal tractor pose!  I love spending time with this sweet family each year, thank you Wheelers for a wonderful morning!

| 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!
