We are officially home owners!! I can't explain to you how much this means to my husband and I. He has been working his butt off the past year to make this happen and it has all paid off! We love our new house and are looking forward to making it our home for a very long time. It truly does feel like our home already (I know, cheesy!) and we couldn't be happier! I am even more excited now because I have an office! Hoping this can really help me keep organized and on track with the millions of things I want to do with my business! Our little guys is really settling in as well and loves his 'new house.' He loves watching the cars go by out front and playing in our tiny backyard! We already planted some veggies and flowers (even though it's the end of the season) and he loves watering them every day :)
My little boy is TWO years old!? Ugh, where does the time go?? He is such a ball of personality, some days I can't take it! He is usually a very happy toddler, always trying to make others laugh and smile. Other times he's... well, he's fresh lol! He loves playing, being outside, helping in the kitchen, his Boy, and being silly! He talks in funny voices, walks with attitude, and is beyond my wildest dreams <3 Happy Birthday Bubba <3
To say that I enjoyed this session, is a complete understatement. This couple was such a joy to work with, I loved every second of it! There was so much love and happiness when they looked into each others eyes; you could really see how much they cared for each other and how excited they are for their upcoming fall wedding. We photographed at Ash Mill Farm B&B because this is also the location of their big day in October. I am SO looking forward to spending the entire day with them and capturing the biggest day of their lives <3

Would you believe that all of these photos were taken in a half hour!? This was a quick mini session that I just started offering (normally I only off mini session days) because I realized that not everyone's budget allows for a standard session. We had so much fun in such a little amount time- and this adorable little girl had enough of me after 30 minutes anyway! Haha. I love doing pink and gold sessions- they're just too cute!! As always, enjoy!
Playgrounds, in my humble opinion, are just the best! It feels great to be able to chase my son around, with no limits on running or screaming or climbing. He is at such a fun age right now where he wants to attempt everything, even if his legs are too little. I love running around with him and hearing, "Woah, Mommy! Look at that!" and "Mommy! My do!!" I cannot wait to be outside with him everyday, once Mother Nature makes a decision on what season it is.
My baby is becoming less and less of a baby every day.. and I love to capture these changes during the simplest of moments, like sitting in a windowsill. This 10 minute 'shoot' captured him so well and I am so happy I decided to grab my camera while we were just having a conversation. His curls.. his silliness.. his smile.. his messy face.. everything about these are so Liam. I never want to miss a stage of his growing life. <3
I cannot believe that this little girl is a whole hand already! I feel like I just photographed her with 20 pink balloons in her little tutu!! I love how this session turned out because it showcased her personality so well! She is such a mix of dainty and goofy. I love the contrast of emotions she gave me during our shoot; one minute she would have the cutest little smile and the next be making a silly face! We also did some photos using chalk because it's one of her favorite activities! Enjoy :)
This past November, I had the privilege of photographing a gorgeous wedding of a family I have known for the past 7 years! It was so wonderful to see Alex marry his soul mate on the perfect day with both of their families there to support them. They had a beautiful ceremony in a small church and a gorgeous reception at The Silver Creek County Club! We had so much fun with the bridal party getting fun shots around the golf course and even more fun once the dancing started! I couldn't have done it without my right hand lady Kaylee Hinkle of Kaylee Hinkle Photography! Enjoy!
When I say that LeeAnn is the most giving person I know, I mean it. She is always helping her friends out in some sort of way, giving her girls the best birthday parties, or watching someone's child for them. She is the proud owner of Cups and Cakes Online and makes THE best cupcakes and cakes for any occasion! (I'll put her link below!) She is one of the kindest people I know and completely deserved this surprise birthday party that her husband, friends, and family pulled off! Everyone had a great time and danced the night away! We love you LeeAnn!

This little boy was so wonderful to work with! He definitely made us work for the shots because he didn't want to go to sleep; he is definitely a curious little guy!! After almost four hours and lots patience, white noise, and rocking, we were all finished and he definitely had enough of us moving him around. It was worth every minute of waiting because we got the most beautiful images of this itty bitty one! Enjoy :)
