| Jace Hamman 3 Months |

Say hello to little Jace!  He and big brother Jensen stopped in for his 3 month milestone session last weekend and what a little man he is!  Jace loves to have his hands up and is ready to hit the fields with his dad, though he may have to change his shirt, lol.  😉  We were even able to get some smiles from Jensen and Jace at the same time, just look at these handsome boys!  What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon and we are looking forward to Jace’s 6 month session already!

| Matt & Allie Baker 2021 |

As we start to return to normal after a year of so many changes, we were honored to be able to spend last Sunday with Matt & Allie as they said “I Do” in a very quaint and beautiful ceremony of close family and friends!  Matt’s love for Allie radiated during their bridal portraits and Allie’s smile was contagious and never ending when Matt arrived!  He even brought her bouquet to their first look for her and it was absolutely stunning!  We were lucky to have a beautiful spring day for outdoor photos, a little wind, but that didn’t stop Allie from smiling!  After their ceremony guests enjoyed gorgeous and delicious cupcakes and yummy appetizers.  It was a wonderful day for a sweet couple!  Thank you Matt & Allie, wishing you all the best!

| Graicen Siler DHS Senior 2021, Winter Session |

This winter we have had more snow than in previous years and the fields around us have looked so nice with their blanket of white!  Graicen had mentioned wanting to do a snow session for part of her senior photos and we were lucky to have a beautiful weekend of snow, sunshine, and mild temperatures; so we headed out to the woods for some fun in the freshly fallen powder!  She once again rocked her session, there is nothing we can’t do that she doesn’t make look amazing.  Thank you Graicen for the honor of capturing your senior year, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!

| Caleb Ranzau AHS Senior 2021 |

Last weekend we wrapped up our 2020 photo season with AHS Senior Caleb!  It’s been a fantastic year with amazing clients and outstanding images!  We started out in our small hometown of Ridgeville Corners, added in some cute fur babies, and then headed to Archbold and the football field for some football and band photos.  Football has played a large part in not only Caleb’s life, but his whole family’s; he’s even had the opportunity to have his uncle on the sidelines as one of his coaches!  I first met Caleb several years ago as a first year 4-H member in our club, it’s hard to believe that he’s a senior already and I look forward to seeing what the future has in store for him!  Thank you Caleb and family for a great evening and helping us to finish up the 2020 season!

| Beaverson Back To School 2020 |

As we head into the Holiday Season after what can only be described as a year like no other, we look forward to enjoying the lights, music, and many festivities around the surrounding communities.  On a warm Friday after Thanksgiving we headed out to capture the Beaverson’s 2020 back to school session!  It’s been an honor to capture the Beaverson Family over the years from school photos to senior sessions; the kids have changed so much and it’s always exciting to see where life will take them next!  Thank you Beaverson’s for the honor of being a part of your family’s milestones!

| Elijah Wolf NHS Senior 2021 |

We have had some beautiful days this November, but I’m sure that cold weather will be here before we know it!  Though it was a bit chilly last weekend, that didn’t stop us from capturing this handsome young man!  I can’t believe Elijah is a senior, I’ve known him since he was small and it’s been a joy to watch him grow into a kind, funny, and genuine guy!  We found some amazing places in the alleyways of Napoleon and he showed me some trails by the river that I never knew were there and can’t wait to use again.  His guitar made for the perfect accessory, he even played a few tunes for us as we were out and about!  I can’t wait to see where the future takes him Elijah, thank you for an amazing evening!

| Jake Beaverson AHS Senior 2021 |

Archbold High School recently wrapped up their football season after a fantastic run into the playoffs!  This last weekend was beautiful and warm with a hint of fall color still left at one of our local nature preserves where we headed out with AHS Senior and football player Jake Beaverson!  Growing up Jake could be found in the creek by his house or playing football, so the woods and football field were the perfect spot for this senior guy.  Though he suffered some injuries this season and wasn’t able to play as much as he had hoped, his love for the game showed as he continuously threw the football and smiled non stop.  It’s been a pleasure capturing this young man over the years and I look forward to hearing about his post high school plans.  Thank you Jake for a wonderful evening and best of luck in your senior year!

| Rohrs Family 2020 |

November has been unusually warm and we are all taking full advantage of it!  The color has almost completely disappeared from the trees, the crops are harvested, and Thanksgiving is just around the corner!  Last weekend I had the pleasure of capturing the Rohrs Family, a family that is very dear to our hearts because they are also part of our family.  We headed to their family farm to use their gorgeous red barns and then headed out to their woods to find some color and even see where Tyler dropped his first deer from his tree stand that you see in their sneaks!  Growing up just down the road form one another, enjoying horse rides, farming, and even polka dances together, we love spending time with them all; Luke, Heather, Tyler, and Abbi all played a part in our wedding, we enjoy hearing Luke play and sing in the family polka band, and he is my favorite polka dance partner!  They all have hearts of gold and love our kids like their own, they’ll do anything for you, and I couldn’t have been more excited when they asked to do a family session this fall.  Even though we didn’t have much of a sunset to end the evening, we still captured a wonderful silhouette with the farm behind them; Thank You Rohrs Family for a wonderful evening!

| Graicen Siler DHS Senior 2021, Fall Session |

As we quickly wrap up the fall season with sessions in the next few weeks and move into graphics projects, we are searching for as much color as we can!  What a challenge we had for Graicen’s fall senior session last weekend; the rain and wind in the days before had taken most of the remaining color from the trees, but we were able to find bit of gorgeous color here and there.  I will surely miss photographing this gorgeous girl each year, what a pleasure it has been to watch her grow through the years!  Next up, her winter session, will we have snow this year?  Certainly hoping we do so that we can create more magic in front of the lens!  Thank you Graicen for such a fun evening!

| Wheeler Family 2020 |

My time with the Wheeler Family never disappoints, this year we went off roading!  A good reminder to always come prepared, or at least bring a 4×4 😉  Little Miss Moline has grown so much since last year’s session!  We headed out to their woods and found some great spots that hadn’t gotten too wet from the previous days rains.  Miss Mo hammed it up for the camera and couldn’t have been any cuter; we even did her traditional John Deere pedal tractor pose!  I love spending time with this sweet family each year, thank you Wheelers for a wonderful morning!
