| Josh & Taylor Maternity |

Taylor & Josh were beaming this last weekend as we captured their maternity photos!  The excitement that their little one will be making his appearance in a few short weeks was everywhere and it was such an honor to spend the evening with them.  We braved a few mosquitoes in the woods for some beautiful results!  Taylor had mentioned she wanted to do some water photos and it was a great idea, she was stunning.  When couples are willing to take a different step and do something out of the ordinary, the results are always spectacular.  These next weeks will go fast and that little guy will be here before you know it, Congratulations Taylor & Josh!

Many don’t realize that not only do we love to do graphic design, but we also enjoy taking those designs and appling them to your vehicles! With 15 years of graphic application experience, we are ready to outfit your vehicle! Working with fellow local small businesses is one of the most important things to our business! We love getting out in the field and applying vinyls!

Short Electric had already created a straight forward and easy to read logo in vector art, so we took that logo, measured their vans, added some more text, and we were ready to apply! They were looking for something that would be easy to read as they drove down the road, not wanting to put too much on the panels, but still making sure fellow divers knew who they were. We are lucky to have several electricians in our area and are glad to have added Short Electric to that list! As they grow we will be ready to outfit their next vehicle with whatever design they come up with! Thank you Short Electric for trusting us to apply the graphics to your vehicles!

| 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!

| 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!

| Brok Burtch 2018 |

When you wear a hot dog shirt to your session, you know it’s going to be great!  Brok is hilarious, his personality matches his shirt perfectly!  We had beautiful weather the other day as we strolled through downtown Defiance for his session.  I love my yearly sessions with this handsome guy, they are always full of laughs, giggles, and scary expressions!  Brok started kindergarten this week and I’m sure is going to rock it!  Have fun this year buddy!

What a beautiful day Tyler & Erica had for their wedding last weekend!  The guys were handsome in their blue suits and the girls we gorgeous in their deep navy dresses!  The flowers smelled amazing and the details at the reception were intricate and a perfect depiction of who Tyler & Erica are.  We had so much fun at their engagement session at Sauder Village a few months back and we had even more fun at the wedding with the addition of a great bridal party!  Many couples are opting to do a first look on the big day, but Tyler & Erica didn’t want to see each other until Erica walked down the aisle.  I got a message from Erica the day before the wedding saying they had changed their mind and wanted to add in a first look, and I’m so glad they did!  The emotion between them in the moments that Tyler turned around and saw Erica can’t be put into words, there is an amazing connection between this sweet couple that you just have to see!  The ceremony went off without a hitch, we had a great time with the bridal party, and the reception was full of great food, cake, and dancing!  We decided to take advantage of the beautiful evening and head outside towards the end of the reception and take some gorgeous photos next to an old truck!  It was a beautiful day for this amazing couple, it has been great working with them, I was honored to spend their day with them, and can’t wait to see what their future holds, Congrats Tyler & Erica!

Beautiful.  Ashlee is this word inside and out!  It seems like just a short time ago we were doing her senior pictures and she was getting ready to embark on the next chapter, that was already back in 2015, where has the time gone!  Since our last get together Ashlee is now an STNA, working in a neighboring town, and on her way to a nursing degree, how amazing is that?!  We got together last week for an amazing session, just because!  We met up in our small town and walked around from building to building and then headed out to a great grassy field!  Everyone deserves to do a fun photo session for no other reason than to have a wonderful time laughing, catching up, and capturing some amazing smiles!  Thank you Ashlee for heading out on a warm summer evening and braving the walk through the grass with me!
