| 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!

| Beaverson Back To School 2018 |

It’s been a few years since the Beaverson’s have been in front of the camera, but you would never have known, it was just like it had been yesterday!  A few weeks ago you saw their brother Hunter’s senior session, but last Sunday morning it was their turn!  We headed to a local barn with gorgeous grass and a beautiful fall light all around us!  As the fields are emptying and the colors changing, we bundle up just a bit more and smiled and laughed to keep us warm!  It’s been a beautiful fall and so many more wonderful sessions still to come, but what a wonderful session with great kids, thank you all for a great start to a fall morning!

| 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!

| Fry Family 2018 |

I spent part of Mother’s Day with the amazing Fry Family!  By the end of the session my abs were so sore from laughing, never a dull moment and such a wonderful time!  You might recognize a few faces from some previous individual sessions this year and I was thrilled to get to capture the whole group as one.  From four adorable grand kids, to a group of comical son-in-laws, side splitting laughter was on hand the whole session!  We ventured back to a gorgeous cabin in the woods with a creek, brilliant green color on the trees, and just a little mud!  Natalie and Annie did amazing and were gorgeous, Jensen was Mr. Ham as usual, and Miss Moline was perfect at just a couple weeks old!  Thank you all for a wonderful start to Mother’s Day, hope all four of you Mama’s had a great day!

| Stehulak Family Christmas Cards |

Such a fun and lighthearted session with the Stehulak Family this fall!  I am always honored when families come back and want to create custom Christmas cards using some of their session images!  No two families have the same idea in mind for their cards and that’s what makes it so unique.  What a wonderful way to share a family get together with those near and far this Holiday Season!  Merry Christmas Stehulak Family!

| Fry Family 2017 |

We had snow flakes last Sunday!  It was chilly, damp, and rainy, and then there were large flakes!  The Fry Family braved the cold temps, bundled to stay warm, and then unbundled quick for a great result!  Three gorgeous granddaughters and a handsome grandson made this session so fun!  The girls were full of smiles and even held hands!  Thomas was a trooper in the cold and gave us some great grins!  Thank you Fry Family for a fun afternoon!

| Trey Siler 2017 |

Trey is the big brother to Brok and another handsome young man!  I think he has stretched a foot since I saw him last!  This football playing tough guy has a heart of gold and ready to help whenever he is needed!  I love catching up with him, hearing about what’s new, and seeing if he’ll attempt climbing the next unique and inviting tree!  The future holds great things for this guy and I can’t wait to see where it takes him!  Thank you Trey for another wonderful session!

| Burtch Family 2017 |

Fall colors are still changing and beautiful here in late October!  I spent my Sunday afternoon yesterday with this fun & loving family!  We headed out to a gorgeous spot with lots of colors still on the trees, a great stone building, and crisp cool fall air!  The Burtch family is another one of my yearly sessions and I always look forward to my conversations with each family member as we find just the perfect spot for each!  This year we did a full family and then broke down into mini sessions for each of the kids and what a blast each of their sessions was!  Stay tuned for sneaks from Graicen, Trey, & Brok’s sessions!  Thank you Burtch Family for a wonderful day yesterday!

| Grooms Family 2017 |

This family, I love them!  I looked forward to seeing this crew each and every year!  It is so fun to look back at just how much these three have changed since last year.  This year we ventured out to the gorgeous town of Grand Rapids on a warm Sunday afternoon!  We strolled around enjoying the fall colors as we looked for just the right spot for each kiddo, talking about dinner the night before, staying dry and not jumping into the water, and the yummy smells coming from each shop and restaurant we passed!  Before we knew it the sun was starting to lower in the west and our tummies were rumbling!  Thank you Grooms Family for a wonderful Sunday!!!

| Stehulak Family 2017 |

October weather was still gorgeous here in Ohio this last weekend, however today it is raining!  I was honored to spend part of my Sunday with this beautiful family as they gathered to celebrate a wonderful birthday!  The Stehulak Family gathered at Nancy & Carl’s and the day was filled with kids of all ages, from Carl’s mom, uncle, and siblings, to Nancy & Carl’s kids and grand kids; so many happy smiles from all of them!  The young ones did amazing too!  Thank you Stehulak Family for a great afternoon, hoping you all had a wonderful birthday celebration and enjoyed the warm fall day!
