| Share the Love |

As 2017 is now well underway, there are still many new things coming for SSRM this year!  Next up is the brand new “Share the Love” referral program!  I have been lucky to work with so many amazing people the last several years that I wanted to be able to give back to them for continuing to allow me to capture their family, seniors, kids, & weddings!  Not only will they receive a great gift of a credit for their next session, but the family or friends they refer will also receive a discount on their session!  There is no limit to the number of referrals one can make or the number of credits you can earn towards a future session.  Let’s “Share the Love” and make 2017 another wonderful year!!!

| Amber Wendt AHS Senior 2017 |

It’s a warm October this year, with many still wearing shorts and t-shirts, but the leaves are beginning to fall and change quickly!  This last Saturday we spent a warm evening capturing AHS Senior, Amber!  From starting at their family farm to a quick couple of miles down the road and finishing off with a great sunset silhouette, we had a great time talking, laughing, and catching up!  It seems like just yesterday I met her starting out in her first year of 4-H and now she’s a senior!  Best of luck this year Amber!

Fall has arrived in Northwest Ohio, harvest has begun, and the colors are changing! While the rain chased us indoors for Melissa & Brian’s ceremony, that didn’t stop us from dodging the raindrops to get some great outdoor shots!  This fun loving couple and their bridal party were ready for anything, from trudging through mud puddles to crawling through the weedy pasture field!  It has been a pleasure working with this wonderful family, from invitations and their engagement session, to their beautiful wedding!  Thank you to both the Michaelis and Allen families for allowing us to capture your day!  Congrats Melissa & Brian!

It’s been a pleasure to watch these beautiful girls grow!  Their personalities are so sweet and big sister loves showing little sister how to read their favorite book!  A warm Saturday morning was spent with them and their mom and dad as we captured them just being them!  A casual and relaxed session of catching up and sharing parenting stories!  I always look forward to seeing them and can’t wait until our next session to see how much they have changed from this one!

Meet Addison Renee!  This gorgeous girl made her appearance just a few weeks early, healthy and happy!  She is the daughter of my cousin Rachel and her husband Drew, and affectionately referred to as our niece!  Growing up together, we thought it appropriate when our little guy was born, that Rachel & Drew would be his aunt and uncle, and now our little one has a new little cousin!  She is perfect in every way, such tiny features, looks like her mommy and has a reddish cast to her hair like her daddy.  It was a great day of pictures, snuggles, and catching up!  I can’t wait to watch her and our little one grow up together, play in the haymow, drive the tractors, and make summer sausage together!  Welcome to the family Addison Renee! ❤

| Melissa & Brian Engagement |

Summer is almost half over, many are beginning to think of the upcoming fall activities, and some are mid wedding planning!  I got to spend a warm, country, Saturday evening with these love birds and it’s evident that their Oct. 1 wedding is going to be wonderful!  We did their invites several weeks ago, engagements are now in the books, and next up is the big day!  I can’t wait to capture it for them!

Summer is well underway and July in our area means fields of golden wheat ready for combining; but not before heading out with upcoming AHS senior Ryan!  From family tractors and trucks, to cows and silos, we had a great morning with cool, comfortable weather!  Best of luck this coming fall Ryan!

What a great session to end the week with last week!  This beautiful little girl turned 1 on Halloween!  She was in a great mood, Mom and I were able to keep her moving and catch some adorable shots!  We used the rocking chair that was given to her Mom by her Grandma and the leaves and gourds I had brought in from outside were a huge hit!  I love capturing little ones at this age, the session is run by them, we roll with their likes and dislikes, and we follow them so that they can be themselves, and what’s better than catching those gorgeous eyes and long lashes up close as she craws towards you?!  Happy Happy First Birthday Zaylee!

Last Sunday was a perfect cool, almost fall, day for a family session! A gorgeous family and kids full of energy always make the day even better!  We met at the home of a local family friend and borrowed their barn to keep us shaded and gave us that great rustic fall feel.  Their colors worked perfect and they look amazing!  The kids smiles are priceless, the adults look sharp, and they are one great family!  What a fantastic session to kick off the fall season!
