Emma 9 Month Portraits | Scioto Mile Columbus, Ohio

Every time I have the pleasure of checking in with this adorable family, it is so much fun. Emma and Addison are beautiful little girls that take after their gorgeous momma. And watching how much they love their daddy always brings a smile to my face. I’ve been taking pictures of this amazing family for the past year and last weekend’s family portrait session was the perfect way to welcome Spring to Columbus, Ohio. We met for little Miss Emma’s 9 month baby portraits at COSI on the Scioto Mile Sunday evening. I absolutely loved the perfectly curated outfits Nicole put together for her family. It seriously doesn’t get any cuter than this! Keep smiling!...

Jordan and Cory met through church. When I asked what first drew her to him she said, “It was his eyes and his voice. I saw him and thought, ‘how have I never noticed him before?'” After initially meeting, Cory and Jordan started making excuses to see each other, mainly through running together. “Which is funny,” she said, “because neither of us really like running.” Eventually, Cory asked Jordan to be his girlfriend at Stauf’s Coffee Roasters in Grandview, Ohio. Then, 1,335 days later, Cory asked another very important question at Stauf’s with the help of his guitar. With this adorable story in mind, we shot Cory and Jordan’s engagement pictures at Inniswood Metro Gardens in Westerville, Ohio with a couple of important props: coffee from Stauf’s and Cory’s guitar. These two were so much fun to explore the grounds with. They’re sweet and funny and quite literally fit perfectly together. I’d ask them to stand or sit somewhere and they’d effortlessly fall into each other, in picture perfect fashion. Jordan and I teased Cory for being a little camera shy, but in reality, these two made my job so easy. I loved these outfits during their session, both Cory and Jordan have GORGEOUS eyes and this soft blue brought out their eyes beautifully. Jordan and Cory, thank you so much for spending your Saturday evening with me! I am so excited to be a part of your wedding in August! Keep smiling!...

Dave + Lena: Tudor Arms Hotel Ballroom Wedding | Cleveland, Ohio

Dave + Lena: Tudor Arms Hotel Ballroom Wedding | Cleveland, Ohio

The bright sun streamed in through the floor to ceiling windows of the Tudor Arms Hotel Ballroom as Lena’s brother shared stories of Dave and Lena’s relationship at the altar. There was laughter and a few tears as Dave and Lena repeated their vows, promising to love and cherish each other, in the tradition of the Christian, Jewish, and Bahai faiths. Their family and friends came from all around the world to see them say “I Do” last Saturday and the love and support they brought with them filled the entire weekend with warmth and adoration. Dave and Lena started their wedding days getting ready in the Romeo and Juliet suites of the Tudor Arms Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio. After slipping into her dress and putting on the most amazing pair of custom earrings her dad had gifted her, Lena made her way to the Romeo suite for a private first look with her soon to be husband. After the first look and the more formal portraits done in the ballroom, I promised Dave and Lena we could loosen up and have more fun. So Dave and Lena faked a first look, waved from the top of the stairwell, and danced to JT from the balcony. Most importantly, they spent the morning of their wedding laughing together and that’s always the best way to spend a morning. Dave and Lena’s wedding was truly a family affair. Lena’s brother performed the ceremony while Dave’s 3 brothers served as his groomsmen and throughout the ceremony Lena and Dave had readings from their sisters-in-law and Lena’s mom. David and Lena made a real entrance into their reception and the...

Meet Hudson: Lifestyle Newborn Photos | Newark, Ohio

This fall I had the pleasure of shooting maternity pictures for Brooke and Dan. They were expecting their first baby together and could not be more excited for the arrival of their little one. They wanted the gender of the baby to be a surprise, and although they had their own suspicions, it wasn’t until this little one arrived did they know for sure… It’s a Boy! Hudson is such an adorable little guy who already has mommy and daddy wrapped around his tiny fingers. In addition to being loved on by mommy and daddy, Hudson has an older brother and sister who are pretty big fans as well. Hudson’s newborn session last Sunday was so much fun to shoot and he did such a good job of being a little model. Welcome to the world, Mr. Hudson – you are so loved! Keep smiling!...
