| 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!

| Hailie Philpot MHS Senior 2020 |

This year’s senior’s have chosen some absolutely amazing locations for their sessions, and Hailie, a Monroe Ohio High School 2020 Senior, was no exception last Saturday!  We headed out to a local metropark and were lucky enough to find a small hint of fall color in one of their amazing grassy fields and a few colored leaves filtering the trails and bridges.  Hailie is such a sweet, kind young woman from with a bright future ahead!  She brought lots of great ideas to her session and a fabulous chair!  I love when seniors bring something personal to help customize their session, and this chair was amazing; the perfect amount of unique mixed with personality and style!  We started off at just one of the many great locations in the metropark, then headed to a gorgeous trail, the main hub was next where we found the perfect bridge, and off to finish in the stunning grassy field!  We couldn’t have asked for a better day and great weather for this fantastic senior, thank you Hailie for such a wonderful Saturday evening!  Best of luck this next fall!

| 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!

| 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!

| 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!

| Henry Family 2018 |

The Henry Family has kicked off our 2018 Fall Season!  Our first session with gorgeous pumpkins, mums, and straw bales!  I have known the Henry Family for a long time, from going to school with their boys to showing at the fair and being in the same 4-H club in our small town; I was honored to get a message a few weeks ago to capture them on a beautiful and warm Labor Day!  After a quick couple miles down the road, we got some wonderful shots of this amazing family and their adorable grand kids!  Two handsome young men on pedal tractors and a gorgeous girl with beautiful flowers made their session perfect!  We had a very warm morning, but the kids were troopers and we were able to beat the noon heat!  Thank you Henry Family for a wonderful start to our Labor Day!
