| Gerdeman Family 2019 |

Just as we were getting ready for the Gerdeman Family’s session, it decided to downpour!  With some quick thinking, fast moving, and a beautifully fall dressed family, we headed out to look for a new spot!  We happened to pass a gorgeous wooded area close enough to the road that we could stay out of the mud, but far enough from the road that we would be safe.  With no idea whom the homeowners were, we pulled up and they graciously gave us the go ahead to use their property!  Despite our slight set back, the Gerdeman Family was on point all evening!  With adorable smiles from their kiddos, to the sweet laughs mom and dad were able to get out of them, it was a wonderful session!  Thank you Gerdeman Family for a wonderful evening and the flexibility to find a brand new spot all with out warning!

| 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!

| Logan & Brittany 2019 |

Fall colors took quite some time to arrive to our part of Ohio, but when they did they were so pretty!  Unfortunately, the days after brought rain and wind and the colors went from the trees to the ground.  That didn’t stop Logan & Brittany from making the best of their rainy, down pouring, and cold wedding day, they stayed so positive and rolled with the punches!  We weren’t able to go out to their chosen location for portraits due to the downpours, but we were lucky that their church had a covered drop off area and the ladies braved the cold temperatures in their beautiful dresses and the guys gave us their handsome smiles!  Brittany was having a blast as we did her portraits, living up every minute and working the camera, they turned out amazing!  This sweet couple has such a wonderful support system in their family and friends and their love for one another shined when we photographed just the two of them together; no one existed but them and it was adorable!  From the beautiful details in the flowers and rings, the touches at their receptions, their amazing bridal party helping them celebrate all day, and their sense of adventure, it was a gorgeous day, no matter what mother nature threw our way!  I can’t wait to get them and their family back in front of my camera!  Congrats Logan & Brittany, wishing you a lifetime of happiness!

| Dana Voll AHS Senior 2020 Fall Session |

Dana’s late summer session was stunning, from the football field to a wonderful grassy field; but her fall session last weekend was just as gorgeous!  We had beautiful weather for the second part of her 2020 AHS Senior session, with sunshine and warm temperatures, we were able to enjoy many of our local downtown areas.  So many great brick buildings, shutters, cinder blocks, and great wood siding, Dana shined just a bright this fall as she did in the summer!  Being around her amazing personality and sweet smile, you can’t help but be happy and enjoy the moment!  She worked the camera flawlessly in her relaxed, urban outfit, ready to take on anything life as to throw at her.  Dana has a bright future ahead and I can’t wait to hear all about her fall plans as they fall into place!  Thank you for two amazing sessions and so much beautiful images!

| Riah Short AHS Senior 2020 |

Fall colors are still hiding here in Northwest Ohio, but that didn’t stop Riah from bringing beautiful fall color to her senior session last weekend!  This girl is stunning, hilarious, exuberant, smart, and we had an amazing time with her!  It would have been much easier to share her entire session than to choose a few sneak peeks, they are all so beautiful!  To give her session a personal spin, we started in the high school auditorium to showcase her love of music, she’s a fabulous singer and plays two instruments in band; she had such a great idea on how she wanted to pose these shots, so we put our heads together, found the best way to make it happen, and I love how they turned out.  We then headed out to our local nature preserve where the sun snuck behind the clouds at the perfect time and allowed us to use some amazing grassy spots and even the road through the woods!  Riah worked the camera like no other, her smile and laughter were contagious, and we couldn’t have asked for a better Sunday afternoon!  I can’t wait to see where the future takes Riah, thank you all for such a wonderful time, best of luck this next fall!

| Dan & Jacque 2019 |

Fall is here!  The leaves are starting to turn colors and some are even falling.  While we still have some summer like temperatures here and there, cooler weather isn’t far away!  Pumpkins, apple cider, hoodies, and so many amazing sessions are coming up!  Last Saturday was spent at the always beautiful Side Cut Metropark in Maumee with Dan and Jacque for their engagement session!  We drove through heavy rains to get there, but upon arrival it stopped, became cloudy, and with just some sprinkles, we had a gorgeous day!  They brought along their sweet pup as well, she was so well behaved and loved smelling all the new smells as we explored the park.  One of the many attractions at Side Cut are the Canal Locks, they hold much history for NW Ohio and they did not disappoint with their beauty for Dan and Jacque!  We walked paths, found great steps, waterfalls, gorgeous tress, and some amazing moss for a quick detail shot of Jacque’s ring!  They will be eloping for their wedding, while they haven’t decided just where yet, I’m sure it will be beautiful!  Congratulations Dan and Jacque!

| 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!

| Crossgrove Family 2018 |

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!

| 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!
