Jaxson {2}

I’ve been working with this cutie for a while now! We decided to meet outside of the Franklin Park Conservatory to capture his two year milestone. Grandma joined us this time, and man, does he love his Grandma! She was so helpful with getting smiles and laughs. Jaxson’s personality always shines in the photos! He’s got the best expressions!

I love fall photo sessions! It’s my favorite season and my favorite holiday. I even brought along my orange ottoman to go along with the fall color scheme. The waterfalls here are gorgeous, but tricky when dealing with young children. The kiddos could walk right into that water! Also, who wants to look at the camera when there’s all that awesome water and rocks to throw? I was so happy though with how the photos came out!

When you’re looking through the photos, pay attention to the one of him walking up the bridge. Can you see he’s carrying his stuffed monkey? So cute!

Carter {3}

It never fails, every time I meet with Lori and Carter, it’s 100 degrees outside! This day was no exception!

Lori picked a location in Dayton, Ohio that I had never been before. We met at the Cox Arboretum MetroPark. It was really beautiful there, but tricky to find shade since many of their flowers require direct sun. We had a hard time getting Carter’s attention away from the ponds, because there were turtles everywhere. He just kept pointing and saying “turtle turtle.”  You can tell that’s what he’s doing in a couple of the photos below.

Carter always makes me work for his photos lol! It’s worth it though, because he’s just the cutest little guy! I always get a ton of compliments after I post his photos. I love all of the candid shots of him! He has a big personality inside that little body!

Lori and I graduated from high school together. We never really kept in touch, aside from social media, until she had Carter and started allowing me to photograph him. Now, we see each other 2-3 times a year. I know that still isn’t much, but it’s always great to see her and catch up! I only have one request Lori, if you have another child let’s shoot for October so it isn’t so hot out lol!

Urban Session with Mr. Madden {2}

I was so looking forward to this session!  I’ve only worked with Madden once, but he was such a cutie and the camera loved him!  I also really love the location we chose, North Bank Park.  It’s one of the best places to capture the city skyline.  We were so lucky that the weather was beautiful the day we met.

Once again, Madden was so easy and fun to work with!  He pretty much posed himself the entire session!  He was in denial about this being his two year session though!  You’ll see in the photos he’s pretty sure he’s actually four or five years old!  I was in love with those stylish green pants mom chose for him to wear.  Neither dad nor Madden were thrilled about them though!  Apparently, when mom was dressing Madden he made it very clear those were not his pants lol!  He was a trooper though and wore them like a stud in all of the photos!

Gaige {2}

I’ve been photographing this cutie since he was a newbie!  It’s always amazing to watch kiddos grow up in front of the camera.  Mom and I had decided to try and capture some fun superhero photos of Gaige in a cape and underwear.  Gaige was really comfy in only his undies lol, but he hated the cape!  Thankfully dad was there to airplane him high in the sky for the true flying effect, and also got him to smile 🙂  I just love that butt shot!  I told Mom to keep it for when he starts dating lol!

That really cute Superman banner was made by my mom-in-law.  Typically, banners are hard to use outside, because of the wind.  I got smart this time though, and taped it down to the barn.  Problem solved!

Maddie & Ryder

I believe this is the fourth time I’ve photographed these adorable kiddos!  I was so worried the day we were meeting, because the forecast predicted rain the entire day.  Plus, I had heard rumbles of thunder in the distance about three hours before the session.  Thankfully though, mother nature was on our side!  Despite some pretty strong wind, it was a very successful session.

I absolutely LOVED Miss Maddie’s outfit!  She knew how to work it too!  I don’t think she ever put her purse down unless I asked her to.  I was amazed at how grown up little Ryder was at this session.  He was so tall, and walking and talking the entire time.  Both kiddos have amazing eyes!  I was happy we chose Homestead Park for the photo location, because of the blue train there.  That blue against Ryder’s eyes was amazing!  The wagon I used was my hubby’s when he was a little boy.  It’s so noisy and missing one of the red side pieces, but I just love the vintage feel of it.  I put a quilt on the bottom of it that was my Grandma’s to protect them from getting dirty.  Even without all of the sentimental pieces, that photo of Maddie kissing her brother in the wagon is my all-time favorite!

I keep telling mom and dad they need to jump into the photos sometime!  As many times as I’ve met with them, they’ve never taken a family photo.  Maybe I can convince them this summer!

Throwback Thursday {The Monn’s}

I have to leave super early tomorrow to catch a flight, but I didn’t want to miss posting my Throwback Thursday feature!  I’m super excited about sharing this family!  My husband and the father, Bob, have been friends since childhood.  He was also a groomsman in our wedding.  He brought Amanda to a wine tasting at our condo about four years ago, and now fast forward to present day, and they are happily married with two beautiful kiddos!  It’s been such a joy watching Bob transform into a dad, and a great one at that!

I’m pleased to introduce you to their youngest kiddo, Miss Lili.  She by far has been the easiest newborn I’ve ever photographed!  It was easy to soothe her, and she was a heavy sleeper, so I was able to pose her with cute props and snap away!  Not to mention how beautiful she is!  My friend, Nina, made those super fancy hats with the feathers for me.  She also made the zebra cocoon and diaper cover.  Who doesn’t love a Buckeye baby?!?  I made sure to add the pom poms, so this little beauty wouldn’t be mistaken as a boy in that cute helmet hat.  These are some of my favorite newborn photos I’ve ever taken!


This past fall we finally met to do photos of the whole family at Inniswoods.  I believe Miss Lili was around seven months, so she was able to sit unsupported so well.  Now, you get to meet their other cutie, Jackson!  He had just celebrated his third birthday.  I love the one of both kids up in the air!  Such a fun family!  I’m blessed to not only have them as clients, but more importantly, as friends.
