| Shonda & Addie |

What’s cuter than a session with a dog?!  Say hello to Addie, she is my sister’s pup and such a ham in front of the camera!  We set up a quick mini session for these two over the Thanksgiving holiday and Addie was adorable in her Santa suit!  While she isn’t normally a fan of the Man in Red, she was a trooper and left everything, including the hat, on the whole time!  She did a great job, got lots of treats, and was great at “smiling” for us!  Merry Christmas Addie!

| Lawrence Family 2018 |

Fall color this time of year is hard to find, but last weekend the Lawrence Family found some at 4-H Camp Palmer!  We headed out on a warm fall afternoon and found some beautiful places.  From grassy areas, to fences and beautifully colored trails, there were lots of smiles, laughter, hugs, and even a few bunny ears!  I had such a great time catching up with fellow high school classmates that I haven’t seen in years and hearing about what they are up to and where they are living these days!  After we graduate high school, time flies so fast and it’s easy to lose track of everyone, but it has been a wonderful Thanksgiving this year as I have been able to reconnect and catch up with so many wonderful friends!  Thank you Lawrence Family for a wonderful afternoon, Happy Holidays to all of you!

| Stucky Family 2018 |

Years and distance can make staying in touch with old friends difficult these days, but with the help of social media it’s made keeping up with others much easier!  I was happy to hear that an old friend of mine and her husband had welcomed a little boy eleven weeks ago and even more excited to find out that they were going to be back in the area over Thanksgiving!  We were able to find a time to sneak in a quick mini session as they were headed from one dinner to the next and though our time was short and we didn’t get to catch up as much as either of us would have liked, it was wonderful to meet her sweet family!  We were able to capture many of Reese’s sweet expressions and even a few of his mom and dad!  Over the last few months we have enjoyed reconnecting by sharing stories of our boys and giving advice to one another on things to try or what worked for us and it has been so nice to have another listening ear to bounce parenting questions off of!  Congrats Becca & Jacob, Reese is adorable!

| Trevor Perry 6 Months |

.Pumpkins, tractors, leaves, and a cuddly, happy, and handsome little man in plaid were the perfect way to spend my Saturday!  I love when little ones look up and right into the camera, there is such an innocence in their big eyes, looking, watching, learning, and exploring everything around them, taking it all in!  Trevor loved playing with the little tractors and taking a taste of the gourds!  Seems like such a short time ago that we did his newborn session, he has grown so much, looks just like his big sister Emma, and I look forward to watching him grow!  Happy Half Birthday Trevor!

One of my favorite things is hot chocolate and our weather has been perfect for it!  What a better way to warm up at our Saturday morning session than with yummy hot chocolate and whipped cream!?  I met up with the Crossgrove Family just down from their home and we had a gorgeous morning and the light was perfect for their session!  The sun was peaking up behind the horizon and bringing to life everything around it.  I’ve known Jodi since before high school and was so excited to capture her and her beautiful daughter!  We had lots of laughs, a little whipped cream fight, and so many amazing smiles, it was a session for the record books!  This session will fill you with such happiness and give you all those warm fuzzy feelings!  I love nothing more than capturing a family all while catching up and reminiscing with a wonderful friend!  Thank you Crossgrove Family for such an amazing fall session!

| Alt Family 2018 |

Combines are in the fields all around us, gravity wagons bounce down the roads behind tractors and trucks, and fall color has finally arrived!  I was lucky enough to spend part of my weekend with the beautiful Alt Family at our local living history museum, Sauder Village!  Their two gorgeous girls were full of stories, giggles, and lots of kisses for Mom and Dad!  They helped us to pick out some great spots in the Village and seeing their smiles made us all warm and fuzzy on a cool and crisp day!  We explored the Village and checked out their newest edition of the 1920s and took advantage of the cool green colors of the weeping willow before heading off to find the fall foliage.  Thank you Alt Family for a wonderful Saturday afternoon and Happy Fall to all!

| 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!

| Truscelli Family 2018 |

It is officially fall here in Ohio!  You can see a hint of color starting in some of the trees, the air is a bit cooler, and then sometimes back up to the hot and humid, and the fall decorations are appearing on front porches around the area!  Last weekend I met up with the Truscelli Family at a local lake for their family session!  It was a beautiful day with gorgeous trees, water, and lots of laughs!  I love when families jump in with posing ideas and share their thoughts, it makes the session just that much more special for them!  Thank you Truscelli Family for a wonderful Sunday afternoon!

| Grooms Family 2018 |

Everything about this family makes me smile!  The Grooms Family is another one of my yearly sessions and each year I can’t wait to see how they have grown and changed, it won’t be long before the oldest is taller than me!  This year, we headed out to the beautiful Sauder Village Campground and Little Lake Erie; after a few days of heavy rains, we had a gorgeous and cool fall day.  We even found a couple trees whose leaves were just starting to show a hint of color, giving us the perfect feel to the start off fall!  I love every minute of my conversations with each of these kids, I always leave having learned something new!  Mason wanted to do a recreate of an image we capture back in 2014 and challenged me to do a side by side of them for their sneaks, challenge excepted!  Thank you Grooms Family for another wonderful session, have a great Fall!
