| Grooms Family 2019 |

Each year I look forward to the Grooms Family’s session!  The kids have grown so much since last year, I’m going to be the short one soon!  This year we headed out to some local barns and had a great time exploring each barn and the uniqueness it offered, amazing siding and great colors on each one complimented their fall outfits perfectly, we even got Mason to venture to the edge of the bean field!  There is never a dull moment with these three sweet kids, the jokes and smiles make the whole evening worth it.  Each year they top the year before, can’t wait to see what we come up next year!  Thank you Grooms Family for a fun evening!

| Ethan & Katie Wedding Invitations |

These two love birds tied the knot last weekend!  Katie & Ethan have been dating for a long time, they have been seen sitting in the beef barn at our local fair for years, watching tractor pulls, and going for tractor rides for so long you’d think they were already married!  However, just last year Ethan asked Katie to marry him and she said yes!   I was thrilled when Katie asked me to help her create the perfect wedding invitation for her and Ethan!  Creating custom art for friends and family will always hold a special place in my heart as I’m sure it does for any designer.  We brainstormed, edited, tweaked, and collaborated, coming up with the design that represented their big day!  From the wedding in Katie’s family machine shed, to the reception at our local American Legion, I’m sure that Katie and Ethan’s day was wonderful!  Congrats you two!

This Image.  This Family.  This Session.  The Wheeler Family had an absolutely beautiful day for their session this fall, cool temperatures, amazing golden light, and an adorable little girl!  There isn’t one image from their session that I’m not in love with, picking a favorite is nearly impossible and their session is one of my favorites from this year!
Last week I received a notification that an image from their session was going to be published in Shutter Scene Magazine!  I was speechless, excited, and in awe!  Publication, something photographers dream of, something I have been dreaming of since the first time I picked up my camera so many years ago.  It still feels surreal!

To check out the magazine in it’s entirety head here!

2018 has been an amazing year, from newborns, milestones, families, weddings, pups, and more, things are winding down as we near the Holidays and ready ourselves for the New Year!  Graphics projects are still keeping me busy and it’s been so much fun to create Holiday cards for clients with images from their sessions!  Logo Designs are underway and many more projects are on the books!

A huge thank you to everyone whom has helped me to get to this point, for supporting my leap into the graphic design and photography business to the wonderful and amazing clients I have had the chance to work with!  You have all made this business what it is, an amazing journey that I wouldn’t want to share with anyone else!  Thank You!

| Brock Ranzau 2019 AHS Senior |

Now that August is here, that means school is just around the corner and seniors are getting ready for their final year of high school!  Last Saturday I spent the evening in our small town with Brock, an upcoming Archbold High School Senior!  We found some great spots downtown and then took a short walked to his house and used their amazing old barn!  Not only was it perfect, but I learned a little bit of our town’s history and Brock’s family’s history!  As golden hour approached we took a quick drive to a local woods and took advantage of the warm summer evening, a great location, and a beautiful sunset!  Thank you Brock and family for a fun evening and best of luck this coming year Brock!

| Tyler & Olivia Save The Dates |

This fall you saw this wonderful couple’s engagement session sneak peaks and we recently finished up their save the dates and are in the final stages of their invitations!  I love sitting down with these two and going over the details of their day as we inch closer with each meeting!  Being able to create custom save the dates for couples helps to make their special day even more amazing, with their images, their colors, and even a special font just for them!  I am looking forward to June and capturing this beautiful couple say I Do!

| Lopez Family |

This family radiates love.  In every action, word, and general kindness!  Once you graduate high school it’s easy to lose contact with classmates as you go in your own directions and start your own families.  Last Sunday I had the absolute honor of capturing a classmate of mine and her family!  Meeting her sweet husband and adorable daughter was so much fun; not only did we catch up, but made plans to get together in the future when they are in the area!  Our husbands hit it off and I can’t wait for our little guy to meet their daughter for play dates!  From old brick buildings downtown, to golden wheat fields and old red barns, what better time to pull out the vintage couch and explore!  I’m so excited for them with the arrival of their next little one just a few short months away, Jazmine looks so beautiful, the pictures just don’t do her justice!  Ale definitely keeps them on their toes, but couldn’t be cuter; Jose you are one lucky man!  Congrats Lopez family and we can’t wait to get together again!

| St. Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church 2015 Directory |

St. Peter’s directory project started all the way back in April!  From the first meetings with council to the final product being delivered just last week, the middle of October.  We set up dates in August for members to stop in and take a directory picture or they could schedule their own time throughout the summer.  After a little touch up on the images in post, adding all members addresses and phone numbers, some fun pictures of church activities provided by members, and the cover, we had a directory ready for print!  A huge thank you to council and members for making the whole process simple and come together great!

| Ridgeville Community Days |

I grew up just outside our small farm community and was always proud to say that I wasn’t from a big city, but a country girl close to our small town with hometown values!  When I was young we had what was called Community Days.  It went on for several years, slowly came to an end, but was brought back a few years ago to the excitement of many area residents.  This year I had the privileged of designing the logo for the 5K!  I have always loved my community and where I came from, being able to give back with the design of a logo by using my art abilities has made for one of my favorite projects this summer!   I am excited to see the logo around town and on the t’s that are soon to come as well!
