Vineyards at Pine Lake Wedding

I may be biased because he is my youngest brother, but recently I photographed one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever been to. It was a lovely August day and the ceremony took place next to a lake nestled in between rollings hills and rows of grapes being grown for the venue’s winery. I had a lovely time spending the afternoon with my future sister-in-law while she and her girls got ready, photographing the gorgeous ceremony, and dancing the evening away with the flower girls afterwards.

Historic Granville Wedding

I love quaint little towns with character and small, intimate weddings with equal character so I was thrilled when a friend asked me to capture her and her loved ones for her wedding in historic Granville, Ohio. The ceremony took place at the Buxton Inn and we also snuck over to the grounds at the Granville Inn across the street for some photos. It was one of those gloomy, chilly summer days that can feel romantic in the right setting, with just a sprinkle of rain for good luck.

Newborn Lifestyle Session

I recently had the opportunity to photograph one of my favorite families just before and immediately after the birth of their third child. It’s amazing how much life slows down (briefly) after baby’s arrival. Each day is a blessing and one to be taken slowly, with little or no agenda. They asked me to visit one morning and capture the raw moments of life with a new little one.

Spring

Actually it’s nearly summer, but I have been so busy editing that I haven’t had a moment to post some images from my spring mini-sessions at Franklin Park Conservatory. I love seeing my repeat clients’ families growing and maturing during mini-session season, and it challenges me to do something new and creative for them each year. Here’s a sample of my favorite images.

Fox in the snow

I’d really been itching to do a snowy magical winter session this winter so I signed up for a workshop through Ironwood Wolves http://www.ironwoodwolves.com/  to photograph their three fox ambassadors in lovely Lancaster, Ohio. Typically I stick to human portraits but I couldn’t resist this unique opportunity. The foxes had such distinct personalities and were wonderful to watch up close. Here are the resulting images, hope you enjoy!

Practice Makes Perfect

I couldn’t resist putting my three year old in this amazing flower girl dress the moment it was in my possession. I love her post-nap grumpiness in juxtaposition with the grandeur of the dress. This was a completely candid session, taken on a whim, hence the disorder of her bedroom in the background. She is practicing to be a flower girl in her uncle’s wedding this summer.
