Are you a chicken?

ONCE about a year ago I voiced that it might be fun SOME DAY to get our own chickens.  So, last week Logan saw a chicken coop at Costco.  So guess what he comes home with?  Yeah I know right!  He walks in and says, " Well you said you wanted chickens."  So we now have four little chickens.  They are pretty darn cute.  However our backyard is pretty darn small and I am not looking forward to sharing the space with them.  But we will see how it goes.  If it gets rough, I make a mean chicken soup.  Just kidding.  No not really.

This pretty little senior!

These pictures were taken this last fall.  When it was warm and the trees were green and the sun was not a figment of our imagination.   It was all I could not to comment on the beauty of her freckles or her beautiful red hair over and over again.  Obviously I have an unhealthy obsession with freckles and red hair.  In the market I can be heard shouting across the store at someones wicked cool red hair, all the while secretly wondering if it is real or came from a box.  
But this is all her! She was so sweet and humble as we worked to create these beautiful images.  Talk about the whole package!

Studio engagement session and a cool tree mural

These two are getting married this year. The bride to be and I first met for coffee to discuss wedding pictures and whatnot.  I knew right away that I wanted to work with her.  She was sweet, had an adorable laugh and the cutest hairstyle. This photo session was the first time I met Mr Bryan.  He was so easy going it made the shoot a breeze.  I was worried when I first started shooting in the studio that all the image would look same and limit my creativity. But I honestly don't feel it has.  Not yet anyway.  I love the mural of the tree in the background and the light is always perfect!  I am looking forward to the wedding day and capturing more beautiful images of them together.

One Year Pictures of a cute little dude.

This little guy was so much fun!  He smiled at everything!!! We tickled him, bounced him, stripped him down and he smiled the whole time.  As I ask my client Yi for input on what she wanted for her portraits she was totally open.  
"I trust you!" She said.
That my friends is a lot of wonderfulness.  Where a client can view your work and and then say, I like everything you do so go for it!  Also a little more pressure as I hold ALL the responsibility.  I am so grateful for this.  It allow me to be creative, to create something special just for them and to capture them as they are!  Happy one year Luke.

A little gift package for my brides and grooms

I am so excited to share with you the little care packages I put together for my 2014 Brides and Grooms.   Let's face it, I wouldn't be here without them.  And I am so grateful that they have entrusted me with one of the most important days in their lives!  So, because I feel so blessed to get to work with you I have put together a little "I am so exceed two work with you" box.  The package contains four things. A little card totally made with love, a lavender pouch that smells like heaven under your pillow, a lip balm for the dry Ohio winter and my favorite item.... a silver spoon with your initials engraved upon it!  Cutest ever right??? This little treasure I got off of Etsy.  The most awesome hand made website known to man. I hope your little surprise made you felled loved.  I will see you all in a few months! Eeeeek.  Wedding season is so close!!

Ava's senior pictures

This is Ava.  She is one of my Senior Reps for this year.  She is fabulous!  First let's not focus on  her amazing skin or beautiful eyes!  Let's just focus on her amazing singing ability or the fact that she got the lead in her school play as a sophomore!  Or maybe that she is kind and generous and good with people. Or.... I could go on for a while and I'n not even her mother.  Thank you Ava for being so trusting and allowing me to do something special with your senior pictures.  You look stunning.  For more information about the Senior Rep program go here!
