Victoria’s Senior Portraits

Victoria is girl after my own heart. I totally identified with her personality and we even share the habit of wanting to reorganize our rooms when we have free time. We hit it off and had a great session! Victoria’s super cute, energetic, and floppy puppy, Josie, joined us for awhile, too. Thank you so much, Victoria! I really enjoyed meeting you and I’ll be in touch soon! Here are my favorites:

Ryan Families

I met Karen a few years ago when she was a guest at a wedding I photographed. We reconnected when Karen wanted to plan a photo shoot for her family when they were all going to be in town together. It went so well, we planned another shoot for her husband’s side of the family over the holidays. Both families were so much fun to work with and everyone involved with the holiday shoot were amazingly brave because we shot almost everything outside along Lake Erie’s shore in December! It was quite cold, but everyone really did a great job looking as warm as possible! Thank you so much, Karen and families! I had a great time! Here are my favorites:

Introducing Gavin

It is always so exciting when a wedding client contacts me to photograph the arrival of a new family member. Julie and Dan were blessed with little Gavin this December and he is perfect! We had a great session at their home and I did my best to make sure that Tanner, the family dog, didn’t feel too left out! Here are my favorites:

Schneider Family

Jen and Mitch have two super cute boys and two crazy and cute pugs. We had a fun indoor session at their home this fall. The boys did great and the dogs were hilarious. I just love puppies with smooshy faces! Thanks for a fun afternoon, everybody! Here are my favorites from the session:

Dan’s Senior Portraits

Dan comes from a very talented musical family and one day decided to learn how to play guitar because his dad and brother play, too. That was like last year. I asked him to play a little bit for me while we shot and I was amazed! And jealous…I wish I could learn things like that that quickly! Thanks for the song and a great session, Dan!

Folger Family

I met Alli and Kevin at church and have had several opportunities to work with them. From designing their wedding programs and signage, to photographing their beloved dogs and babies, I’ve been blessed to get know them both. Here is the beautiful Folger family:

Lilly and Fella

I love dogs.  I love taking pictures of dogs because they are so funny and expressive.  So when my friend Alli started talking about doing some dog portraits of her pups, I was all over it!  (By the way, I love animals in general, so if anyone out there wants pet portraits done, just let me know.  I’m allergic to cats, but as long as you don’t mind my sneezing, I’ll do my best. Can a cat be posed?)

Anyway, Lilly, a 2-year old border collie, was a glamour puss.  I could actually pose her.  Fella, just being the guy he is, was a little less into it, but warmed up after awhile.
