| Grooms Family 2020 |

Fall brings such wonderful colors to the crisp cool air!  While some areas have many leaves left on the trees, others have become bare so quickly.  Crops are disappearing from the fields and doorsteps are now decorated with corn stalks, pumpkins, scarecrows, and mums.  Last weekend I headed out to a local woods with the Grooms Family, another of our yearly sessions that is always eventful with Mason’s antics and the gorgeous smiles from Addie & Olivia.  We found so many great areas of color, it was hard to decide on just one place to capture them!  They have grown so much over the years, I am soon to be the shortest among them!  Thank You Grooms Family for a fun evening!

| Sell Family 2020 |

Agriculture is a large part of our area, farming, livestock, and all that they encompass are essential to so many.  Our area schools have wonderful FFA programs and it takes a great individual to take one of the programs on.  I have been lucky enough to get to know our school districts FFA Advisor Ryan and his family over the years and we spent a fun afternoon capturing the fall colors with them!  From pumpkins and straw bales to trampoline bouncing and swings, the girls looked beautiful and we caught so many funny faces and smiles!  Thank you Sell Family for a fun evening!

| Britenriker Family 2020 |

As we reach mid October it’s hard to know if there will be color on the trees or color on the ground, but last weekend we were lucky enough to have some beautiful yellows and reds on the trees for the Britenriker Family’s session! With eleven kids, eight adults, a couple dogs, and some roaming chickens, we had lots of smiles and laughs in such a beautiful setting! Their navy, gold, and burgundy outfits coordinated perfectly with the brilliant yellows we found back on the trail in the woods.  It’s hard to believe it’s been six years since we last captured this group, they have grown by leaps and bounds!  Thank You Britenriker Family for a wonderful evening!

| Moser Family 2020 |

Fall colors have quickly changed and the leaves are falling!  Last Saturday we had a gorgeous, cool day and I had the pleasure of working with the Moser Family, a family that I have known since I was little.  Fellow photographer Cody, his mom, dad, and younger brother Garrett made the evening such fun, so many smiles and laughs!  Getting to work with and capture other photographers and their families is an amazing thing; in a business where there seems to be so much dislike among one another, I love to get to know, share, learn from, and grow with others!  Thank you Moser Family for a great fall evening, can’t wait to catch up again soon!

| Zoe Castillo AHS Senior 2021 |

The leaves are changing, the weather is cooling, and signs of fall are all around us.  This also means getting to spend time with area seniors as we capture their senior photos!  Last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting up with Zoe and walking a local downtown to find the perfect spots for her before we headed out to hit the trails of a Goll Woods, a state nature preserve.  It was a beautiful day, with gorgeous evening light and a dramatic golden hour!  I’ve been lucky to work with Zoe each fall through the AHS Marching Band and their numerous activities.  Her beautiful smile lit up every picture; from brick wall to a wildflower patch, she was stunning!  Thank you Zoe for a wonderful evening, best of luck in your Senior Year!

| Zirkes Family 2020 |

Fall is finally here and the weather has been beautiful!  While this year has been unusual to say the least, it has been refreshing to see so many familiar faces!  Two years ago I met Alicia and Matt for their maternity session, they were complete strangers to me then, but today, they are wonderful friends whom I love catching up with!  They recently moved to the Cleveland area, but I was so excited to meet up with them while they were here visiting family.  Warren has grown so much and has such an adorable personality and a love for dinosaurs that you can see we had his dad use to help get him to smile!  We picked up right where we left off and it was so refreshing to see them, laugh, and smiles together.  Thank you Zirkes Family for an amazing evening, can’t wait for our next session!

| 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!
