Anna & Samuel. Pleasant Hill Ohio. Canyon Run Ranch.

Anna and Samuel ranked guest experiences on their wedding day highly. Many choices they made reflected a desire to accommodate their guests' comfort and enjoyment of the event. Samuel assigned a chain of command of coordinators and helpers. Each had specific tasks to ensure the day ran smoothly. Even when things got a little out of sorts, neither Anna nor Samuel let the mishaps disrupt their positive attitudes. This put guests and vendors at ease and allowed all to have a great time.

I am unfortunately out of practice,

I have given you into the hands of my laziness and neglectful nature.

They are unkind masters,

They like to make me forget that good things require attention,

Else good things grow tainted and tarnished.

Lindsay & Terry. Napoleon Ohio Wedding. Emanuel Lutheran Church. Ridgeville Legion.

Lindsay contacted me after buying her wedding dress at Blush A Bridal Boutique in Bowling Green, Ohio. Lee, the owner, happens to pass out my brochure to all of her brides! I met with Lindsay and Terry in downtown Bowling Green at one of my local favorites, Grounds for Thought. Lindsay explained that she and Terry have a little girl and they have been working very hard building a life together. Terry was working an opposite shift to Lindsay and I asked if they ever got to see each other. They both agreed that they do what it takes to make it work! Get to know Lindsay and Terry a little better:

  • How did you meet? We met at a party.
  • How would you describe your personal style? Very laid back.
  • What is the favorite/best date you’ve been on together? We went to Cabo San Lucas in mexico in 2013 for 5 days!
  • Who proposed? How? Terry proposed to me after work. One day I came home to a dark house and when I turned on the lights Terry was down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I said YES!

Can I just say how much I LOVE working with people who are kind and laid back? Terry and Lindsay were amazing to work with. No drama. They rolled with any issue that came up and kept their positive attitudes all day long. Lindsay even chased me out to my car to say goodbye at the end of the night when I couldn't find her. 

The bride and groom shared a first dance. The bride and her father shared a dance. And then, Terry and his sister danced together in memory of their mother who had passed away. There was not a dry eye to be found during that dance. At the end of the song, all of Terry's family and friends gathered around him and his sister in a giant embrace. The love and support shown in that moment was truly overwhelming and beautiful. This is what weddings are about. Love. Commitment. And weathering these storms of life together. 

Terry and Lindsay, it was an honor to document your wedding day. Congratulations!

BGSU Senior Photo Session. Bowling Green Ohio. Class of 2018.

What is one thing you could never live without? (Ian {boyfriend} says that it was be McDonald's for me haha!) I think it would have to be photos. Photos make it possible for generations to pass along to the next generation an idea of what it was like while they were growing up and they also help you to not forget someone and what they look or looked like. They are amazing little memories of life.

Honestly, I had no idea what working with a snake would look like. I assumed that I would just let Spooky do her thing and we would hope for the best. She did not disappoint. Nicole was so gentle with Spooky, directing her but never forcing her to do anything she did not want to do. My priority when shooting with animals is to make sure they are treated with respect, in an ethical manner. Spooky's comfort and safety was more important to both of us, than having a successful shoot.

Marquita says, "I think the most remarkable thing about my pack is the fact that everyone of them loves home. I never have to worry about them running away (and that is EXTREMELY uncommon for huskies as a breed). They may get bored and find a way to escape, but the only reason I know they’ve gotten out is because they’re at the door smiling at their accomplishment."

"Family is family, whether it's the one you start out with, the one you end up with, or the family you gain along the way." One of my favorite things about working with families is that I get to see the diversity of what family looks like for each one of my clients. For some, family is just two. For others, family is furry. Some have big families, small families, blended families, single parent families. Some are family by blood, some family by choice. I enjoy celebrating all types of family!

As a firm believer in Murphy's Law, I'll be the first to admit things can, and will, go wrong. Equipment malfunctions are not rare and miscommunication can cause mix ups. Special moments can happen without warning while a photographer is changing a lens. Having a second shooter means that even if a mishap occurs, there is an extra person working to document your day and keep your images safe.

A.J. Senior Photos. Findlay, Ohio. Class of 2017.

A.J. graduated from Findlay High School last spring! A.J. is a super hard worker and he loves playing rugby! He has a classic style but we had to work on some jokes to get a genuine smile out of him. Overall we had a great time exploring Riverbend Park in Findlay and taking his pictures. For the last part of our session, we headed to the sports field where A.J. and his team play rugby. I think it is so great that A.J. chose to play a less common sport, and a tough one at that!

Jay introduced himself to me and explained they were hoping to have family photos done in the fall as it is such a nice time of year. Jay and Cassandra have three young daughters and were looking forward to updating their family portraits!

Cameron Senior Photos. Downtown Toledo. Class of 2018

Our first stop was Middlegrounds Metropark. Middlegrounds is a fairly new addition to the riverfront in Toledo, combining the urban with the natural. After Middlegrounds, we headed to Adams Street to view some of the amazing murals painted there. We also stopped at the Toledo Lucas County Main Library for a few great shots outside the building. Cameron's session truly displays the diversity that can be found in Downtown Toledo.

The Mirror. Themed Photo Shoot. Toledo Model.

It was a pretty piece left over from a gilded age. The young girl's mother had found it in the attic and thought it would look nice in her little bedroom. It hung unobtrusively on the wall waiting for the tot to be tall enough to see into its shiny mercurial depths.

Commercial Branding Shoot. Why You Need One.

Branding your business might sound like something that just happens. When you start your shop, your service, your product, branding and public image will just fall into place right? Wrong. Branding is something purposeful that every successful business has done. Branding has to do with logos, color schemes, names and aesthetic. But it is even more than that. From the way you speak about your business on your website to the smell your clients associate with your company, everything you do can impact your branding.

Jennifer proposed that we exchange portrait sessions and I just had to say yes! She and her husband, Jeremy, have a spaniel mix named Lucy. Lucy is an important part of their family so had to be included in their photos. My husband and I also brought our dog, Beatrice, who is a mastiff mix. Despite the size difference, Bea and Lucy got along perfectly. They both posed... kind of... and mostly paid attention to our directions. We got many precious shots of both of our little families!

Model Shoot. Northwest Ohio.

Most of the time I am shooting for my job. I take portraits or I am documenting a commercial business. While all of my paid shoots involve my personal creativity, there are definitely expectations to get certain poses, light styles, a specific look. I am very happy to accommodate all of these things and often I also get to play a little for myself, but there is something truly refreshing about creating something just for yourself. No expectations except your own.
