| 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!

| 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!

Quinones Family 2020 |

As summer is winding down and we start getting ready for hoodies, pumpkins, and fall colors, there is still so much summer beauty around us!  I met up with the Quinones Family at a local woods where we found gorgeous greens and sweet little yellow flowers!  It’s been a few years since we captured this adorable family and they did not disappoint!  Mila helped me to pose her mom and dad and even got some fabulous smiles from them; we even caught a natural sun flare!  It’s been an honor to watch this sweet family grow since photographing Mila as a newborn; thank you Pops, Jo, and Mila for a wonderful evening!

| Gillengerten Family 2019 |

What a wonderful way to wrap up the 2019 photo season!  The Gillengerten Family’s session was on point, check out the amazing decorations at their home!  From their warm, festive fire place to mom and dad’s perfect Christmas bedroom, there wasn’t an inch of their home that wasn’t ready for the Holiday Season!  Everyone was warm and cozy in their matching pajamas, all ready for Christmas morning with their hot chocolate and candy canes in hand in front of the tree!  Their sweet kiddos did amazing and had the most hilarious faces when we did goofy pictures, you couldn’t help but smile, their laughter was contagious.  Thank you Gillengerten Family for a wonderful afternoon,  wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

| 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!

| German Family 2019 |

Fall was in the air last week, this week we are back in the temperatures of the 80s and 90s, but the leaves are starting to change!  Last weekend I was honored to spend the afternoon with the German Family!  A wonderful extended family session full of adorable families, sweet grand kids, and amazing facial expressions from the little ones.  We met up at Sauder Village, our local living history museum that has amazing places for photos, from weeping willows and grassy places, to an old mill and wonderful old homes!  The kids did great and were thrilled to see the horse and her pony at the end of the session, brought lots of big smiles and laughter from all of them!  We found beautiful sunflowers and enjoyed walking through the Village that we had all to ourselves!  Thank you German Family for a fantastic afternoon!

| Zirkes Family 2019 |

Just over a year ago a message from a mom to be that I had never met looking for a last minute maternity session appeared in my inbox; she was so sweet and beyond excited to welcome their little one in a few short weeks!  I will be forever grateful that she took that leap and left that message!  It has been so much fun to get to know Alicia, Matt, & Warren over the last year, such a fun couple with an adorable little guy and I couldn’t wait to help them celebrate his first birthday with a family session.  We headed out to Providence Metropark in Grand Rapids, Ohio last weekend and with great weather after some humid days, it was perfect.  Warren did so well, we saw lots of smiles, giggles, and playing in the dirt!  I look forward to many more wonderful sessions with the Zirkes Family in the future, thank you Alicia for sending that message and Happy 1st Birthday Warren!

| Reichert Family 2019 |

I knew the moment that I met Beth, that we were going to have a wonderful family session with her crew!  She had so many wonderful ideas and we were able to combine our thoughts for this amazing outcome!  The Reichert Family is prepping to send their oldest daughter off to Yale in the next few days and before everyone went their separate ways and school starts back up, they wanted to make sure to do an updated family session!  We met at the always gorgeous Sauder Village Campground where the grasses were green, the weather was comfortable, unlike the sweltering heat we had just he week before, and their family was so full of laughter, smiles, and inside jokes that you couldn’t help but smile right along with them!  Thank you Reichert Family for such a wonderful summer evening!
