Last weekend, Blake and I took an impromptu weekend trip to San Diego. We drove up to Joshua Tree National Park and stayed a night there before heading on to Las Vegas for two days before flying home. Joshua Tree was AMAZING. At times I felt like I was on an alien planet – the […]

I am always saying I have the best couples and I whole-heartedly mean it. Madison and Zach made the drive down to Columbus from Cleveland on a Sunday evening, just to spend some time with me. Okay, they actually came down for a gorgeous, spring night in German Village to get their engagement pictures done, […]

I think it’s finally official: Spring is here. With warm weather and color starting to appear on trees, I think everyone’s just a little happier. And one of the things that made me happy last weekend was this wonderful engagement session with Jacob and Morgan. These two were so great to get to know as […]

The Wheeler family welcomed me into their home last November for a family session that was full of fun and furry friends. Kristen, Andy, and 3 month old Graham, were the perfect models and in true lifestyle session fashion, we played the entire session by ear. We started in the living room and played with […]

I am so excited to share Trina and Eli’s engagement session at Rose Lake in Hocking Hills. These two were so much fun and I promise that every laugh you see is genuine. They may have been nervous for their session (everyone thinks they’re awkward in front of the camera), but they crushed it! Trina […]

Early mornings and cold weather have never been my thing so I think I know exactly how little Miss Emma was feeling in November when we had an early morning family shoot in 29 degree weather. Her expression throughout the session was a mix of “what are you people doing to me” and “you’ve got […]

Let’s start by making it official, Kate and Andy win the bravest couple of the year award. Hopefully you can’t tell from the photos, but Kate and Andy faced an outdoor engagement session in 38 degree weather along the windy Scioto Mile. They started the session with some liquid encouragement in the form of cocktails […]

We met near the library in Granville, Ohio for our session and explored the streets of downtown Granville. Reagan led the way and helped pick out all of our backdrops (and I personally think she did an amazing job). While Reagan did the work, Rory won us all over with his old man faces and slobbery grins.

The Goldsmith Family is also so much fun to photograph every fall. We meet up shortly after Halloween and I get the scoop on the year’s costumes (Ghosbusters) and what’s the best candy (all candy). The girls aren’t huge fans of pictures, which makes the job a little more challenging, but the candid interactions I get of them, makes it worth all the effort.

Jack and Emily are just the perfect, laid-back couple. They’re down-to-Earth, genuine people who I seriously had the most fun hanging out with during their engagement session this past fall. I mean, when you start your photo shoot with gorgeous cocktails at an amazing local bar and end your session among incredible fall foliage, I’m not going to have any complaints.

let's be insta-friends!
