| 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!

| 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!

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!

| Kauffman Family |

Yesterday was a warm, muggy, and off and on rainy one here in Ohio, but I got to spend the clear afternoon with the Kauffman Family!  They are such a sweet family with huge hearts, a strong faith, and unending kindness!  Trina was diagnosed with Leukemia this year, but is standing strong with determination and strength!  We had planned to do family pictures early this year, but with her diagnosis it just wasn’t the right time, but this last weekend was perfect, great weather, conversations, stories, and the smell of food wafting through the air!  It was wonderful to incorporate some of the ideas that the family had for poses as well!  Thank you Kauffman Family for a wonderful afternoon, stay strong Trina, and hopefully we can all get together again soon!

| Quinones Family 2016 |

This amazing family rounded out October!  We headed to a local woods for fall color and great smiles!  Having graduated with Pops and worked with Joellyn, it’s been an honor to capture their family since the arrival of Mila two years ago!  From newborn pictures to this year’s family session, I love catching up with the three of them!  This year we even had a friendly neighborhood cat follow us through most of their session, he took a liking to Mila and vice versa.  Thank you Quinones Family for another great session!

| Schnitkey Family 2016 |

I spent a blustery fall Saturday morning with this beautiful family!  It’s been three years since we last did photos and oh how the kids have grown!  From a sports star and horse showman, to a young farmer, these three keep their mom and dad hoppin’!  Being in the midst of harvest season, including their full gravity wagons was perfect and as soon as pictures were finished, it was off to the fields on what turned out to be a sunny day!  Thank you Schnitkey Family for a fun morning!

| Sell Family 2016 |

With the unusually warm fall weather, that means more time for great fall colored sessions!  I got to spend last Friday with this beautiful family; we had great night, did some location walking, and I had a gorgeous little helper to find the perfect spots!  Little ones always make a session so much more fun, and these two cuties were no exception!  Then to end the night we were able to get in some great sunset silhouettes!  Thank you Sell Family for a wonderful evening!

These kids!  I have loved watching them grow these last few years and look forward to their session every year!  They have hearts of gold and are full of so much energy!  We headed out to a local park for some fall colors and wooded areas!  While Mason was lumber jacking, Addi, Olivia, and I hunted out the perfects spots!  Such a wonderful afternoon full of giggles, smiles, and creativity!  Thank you Grooms Family for a fun filled time!

| Short Family 2016 |

I love this  family!  You can’t spend time with them and not walk away smiling!  We had a gorgeous fall night for their session at their beautiful home!  Having just done Kenzie’s senior pictures the weekend before, we thought it only fitting to do a special shot for each Katie, Abbie, & Maddie!  With the crops still in the field, some straw bales, mums, and pumpkins, we were able to capture their individual personalities, laughs, and their love of boots and the Steelers!  Thank you for a wonderful evening Short Family!
