Family Session

I love getting to photograph outside whenever I can. So...I really appreciate it when families are willing to brave the cold to get some great shots. It amazes me how well the kids can do in this situation too.
Here are a few from a great family session. I got to photograph the littlest one when she was a newborn. It's hard to believe she is six months old now. These two adorable little girls are going to be breaking hearts when they get to be teens.

Catching up

My grand plan for the next few days is to get caught up on my blogging. After looking through a gazillion images and choosing what I wanted for the new website, I didn't really feel like choosing more images for the blog. Now is my chance to get caught least before I get behind again.

Here are a few from a session with a one-year-old. He has just the cutest darn smile. I've been photographing him since before he was born. Can I say again...I love having my clients come back and watching them grow.

So, where the heck have I been? I've been working on my new website. It is finally finished and up and running. Take a look and let me know what you think. I promise, I proofread it, but let me know if you see any mistakes!

Family Session

Yes, yes, I've been neglecting the blog. So sorry. I have been working on a new website. I'm a bit afraid to make that news public, because now you can all hound me about when the site will be ready (yikes!).
Here is a family session from a few weeks ago. I get to photograph this family every year and I always have a grand time. It has become almost a joke that every year when their session comes around, the weather turns bitter cold and we freeze through the whole thing. This year, 40 degrees outside was much better than the 25 we had one year. The kids were real troopers and politely put up with the cold and my craziness. I still can't believe how grow-up they are all getting.

Senior Session

I had a great time a few weeks ago with this senior session. I was told prior to the session that he only wanted a traditional head shot. I easily talked him into a few creative ideas though. I later discovered that he really just didn't want anything too cheesy. Love that. I'm all about not cheesy. While I may come up with what sounds like a crazy idea, it's only because I think it will create a stunning image. I hope my clients agree.
Enjoy your senior year D and good luck with track and cross country.

Yes, yes, I'm way behind on my blogging. Here is a session from the late summer, hot as can be heat, beautiful morning light, at a great park. I really did have a great time. I love it when the kids are happy and having fun and the parents just let the kids have the kind of fun they want to have. Some moms would have been upset if their child was only interested in the park toys and swings. Not here..."you want to swing? Sure, no problem, let's go swing." It made for some great photos.

One year Old

I photographed this cutie a while back. (I'm just now getting to posting my kid sessions - in between all the weddings.) As usual, I had tons of fun with this little one. He really didn't want to give up his blankie or his thumb, but when he did...he had a great smile.

He was so proud of himself for learning how to walk.

10 month old

I just love it when I get to photograph a little one from the time they are newborns. I love getting to watch them grow up and forming a rapport with my clients. Photos are much better when the parents know my style and trust me, and the little ones are relaxed. Regardless of whether you are having your first or fiftieth session, I try to make the sessions fun and stress free. This one was no much fun!

Wedding J & J

Once again I got to assist the uber talented Neysa with a fabulous wedding. Everything was done in style, including an entrance in the rain. Yes, it did rain one day in Cincinnati. These two make such a wonderful couple. They were terrific to work with and made me feel like part of the family all day. Thank you J & J, it was a pleasure...I wish you all the best.
