| 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!!!

| Graicen Siler DHS Senior 2021, Winter Session |

This winter we have had more snow than in previous years and the fields around us have looked so nice with their blanket of white!  Graicen had mentioned wanting to do a snow session for part of her senior photos and we were lucky to have a beautiful weekend of snow, sunshine, and mild temperatures; so we headed out to the woods for some fun in the freshly fallen powder!  She once again rocked her session, there is nothing we can’t do that she doesn’t make look amazing.  Thank you Graicen for the honor of capturing your senior year, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!

| Graicen Siler 2021 Senior, Summer |

Senior sessions are some of my favorites.  Every senior brings an individuality to their session in their locations, outfits, and props.  We started planning Graicen’s senior session last fall and she knew that she wanted to do some in each season; what a great idea to capture your senior year as the seasons change!  Last Friday we got together for her summer session and had a wonderful time finding unique spots at the local reservoir. Stay tuned for more of Graicen as the seasons change!

| Trey Siler 2020 |

Kind hearted, genuine, and funny, these are just three of the words to describe this handsome guy!  It has been such an honor to capture him over the years and watch him grow, I am officially looking up at him these days!  Trey is a natural in front of the camera and we are constantly laughing during his sessions.  I can’t wait to hear about all of the amazing things he accomplishes this school year!

| Brok Burtch 2020 |

Each year I look forward to this young man’s session!  He grows so much in just one year and this year he is quickly catching up to me!  Brok never ceases to amaze us with his antics at a session, from jumping into the unknown grasses to amazing us with his genuine smile and that laugh, you never know what’s around the corner.  He’s sure to have a wonderful year at school, have a blast Brok!

| Graicen Siler 2019 |

How absolutely stunning is this girl!?  Each year I wonder if Graicen will top her session from the previous year, and the answer every year is yes!  Trying to narrow down sneaks and not show the hundreds that we took was no easy feat!  No matter where we go or what we do, what season it is, or what the weather is doing, she knocks her sessions out of the park!  This year we headed out to the woods and fields, trying to catch the last of the color on the trees before it fell with the upcoming weather!  We had amazing light as golden hour approached and golden hour itself didn’t disappoint.  I had a wonderful lighting assistant in her younger brother Trey, you saw his session a few weeks ago, who was on point all night, we couldn’t have done it without him!  Next year is Graicen’s senior year, she has big plans already for what she wants to do, I can’t wait to pull her visions together!  Have a great Junior Year Graicen!

| 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!

| Kyle Ordway THS Senior 2019 |

Every senior session is special and unique, but this one was a little extra special!  Kyle happens to be a cousin of mine and he had some fabulous ideas for his session!  We started off in downtown Defiance, headed out to the THS & football field, and back to the woods for a little fun with some colored smoke bombs!  Trying to decide just which images to sneak has been no easy task, there are so many wonderful ones.  From brick alleyways and side streets, to the stadium bleachers and a little smoke bomb fun, help me in wishing Kyle best of luck next year as he attends The Ohio State University!

| Robertson Family 2018 |

Cool air brings pumpkins and crisp colorful leaves!  Last weekend’s session with the Robertson Family was on a beautiful fall day with a hint of color occurring in the leaves!  You may recognize many of these faces from sessions this year and previous years, they are some of my favorite yearly sessions, but it isn’t very often we get to photograph them as a group!  It also just so happens that the Robertson Family is also some of my family, and what’s more fun than getting to capture your own family!  We never have a dull moment, from the fun pups to the crazy and scary eyes of Brok!  What a gorgeous day for a great family, thanks guys and can’t wait for the next time!
