Michael & Jessica | Engagement

These two were THE GREATEST. We started off at the Ledges inside Cuyahoga Valley National Park where I mistakenly thought we might be sheltered from the elements. It was COLD and they literally danced in it! The snowflakes were heavy and steady during the entire session... Their hair was frozen and noses cold but they were smokin’! (did you see what I did there…*insert cheesy grin* ha!) I love that they were up for anything and weren’t concerned about ruined hair and potentially frostbitten fingertips: my kinda people. I cannot wait for their wedding!!

Adams | Family

I LOVE LOVE LOVE watching couples go from just-married to parents! It’s the best! Several years ago, I photographed Mark and Nicole’s wedding (which was a dream!) and now I’m capturing them with their new little guy, Carson. And in all seriousness, these two ADORE their son. It was such a joy to watch them interact. I mean, Carson is laughing or smiling in basically EVERY picture…and he’s 8 months old! So much love…so beautiful.

Hershberger | Family/Couple

This family. They’ve been dear friends for as long as I’ve been in Ohio, and they’re AMAZING. They’ve had an unbelievably difficult year and I wanted to make sure to capture some JOY… We initially decided to do an epic beach session with no kids…because how often do parents get to do this? Basically, never. ha! We get there and the beach is preeeetttty much uninhabitable because of the wind. We spend about 5 minutes photographing what we can and then bail. Round two: we head to a friend’s farm (Venture Heritage Farm) with the kiddos. Turns out, we should have done this from the start because it was perfect. It’s inspiring to see this crew still smiling and laughing after such a rough year. Like I said, they’re amazing.
