Beautiful ballerina | Urbana, Ohio Portrait Photography

Vanessa was just the perfect model today! She was the winner of a gift certificate that I had donated to a fundraiser and knew right away she wanted to have an urban dance session. It was so much fun getting to know you better outside of the dance studio!

A charming church wedding | Urbana, Ohio Wedding Photography

What a fun couple and group of friends! They were up for a "first look" with just me and my camera and it couldn't have gone better - tears and grins and pure and sweet love. I've always wanted to shoot a wedding in this beautiful little chapel in my town and it really was just perfect. Thank you so much for having me and my camera along :)

Growing boy! | Springfield, Ohio Family Photography

It's so hard to believe it's been nearly 4 years since I had the pleasure of meeting this little guy during his newborn session. His mommy and I go way back and I couldn't be happier that she's ended up with this beautiful little family!

An amazingly unique wedding | Yellow Springs, Ohio Wedding Photography

This unique wedding was such an incredible experience for me! I feel so blessed to have been chosen to capture this day full of friendship and love and kindness. He's from here, she's from Denmark. Traveling here to celebrate their love where he grew up in a full day of storytelling, a parade, lots of time for fellowship and a gorgeous ceremony in the trees. Her two garments for the day were both created by her own hand and so beautiful! Dinner was fire-roasted right there as the day progressed and was served in a grove of lumbering fruit trees, complete with candles and twinkle lights. Friends from all over the world shared stories and songs for the couple and I had a ball learning about some hilarious Dutch wedding traditions and attempting to capture the magic of it all through my lens. No one seemed to notice the sweltering 100 degree temperatures and danced and drank the night away, making new friends who may not even speak your language... Thank you so much for having me. I was captivated. Wishing you all the best!

A little sister and her big brother | Urbana, Ohio Newborn Photography

I don't think I've ever met a sweeter little boy - my new best friend! He was super friendly and inquisitive and so helpful in photographing his brand new baby sister. Speaking of little sister - could she be any cuter with that hair and tiny features?? And a warm summer day with an opportunity for some rare outdoor newborn shots - what more could I ask for? <3
