Tom and Willow

Hello, everyone! I am moving more towards fine art pet portraits (timeless and classic) so I had two wonderful doggie models come into the studio a few weeks ago, and they did great!

Tom is a seasoned Weimaraner and has the best doggie smile. His best human bud jumped in a couple photos with him, which was super cute!

Willow is just a pup, and was a bit of a handful to get sitting still, but she did an awesome job as well! I don’t see Dalmatians too often anymore, so I was excited when her mom contacted me about the photos!

I can’t wait to do more pet portraits in the studio! Dogs, cats, and other furry, scaly, or feathery friends are always welcome!

Daddy Is My Hero

I’ve been feeling under the weather, so I’m a day late, but I did some photos as a surprise graduation/going away gift for one of my favorite families! Brendan graduated yesterday with his second Master’s Degree, and today is Starr‘s birthday, so the celebrations will be weekend-long, I’m sure! I will truly miss them and their energetic little boys and their precious baby girl!
 
Keep serving our country, Brendan, and God bless you all!

Charisse and Camora

Happy Spring, everyone!

I met these two beautiful ladies a couple years ago when I was photographing a wedding. They were both in the bridal party. Camora was being a total grump, but she was the cutest thing! Now she’s older and did an awesome job for her photos with her mom! Charisse picked out some great spring colors, and the photos turned out great.

I hope you enjoy!

Tatum’s Sitter Session

Hello, everyone! Everyone remember Tatum? I did her newborn photos what seemed like yesterday! These were her 7 month photos, which would be considered the Sitter Session in my Grow With Me Package, where we photograph each milestone for the first year. For the sitter session, baby can sit up and loves tummy time!

Tatum is such a sweetie and loved showing off her little teeth! And what’s cuter than a little baby bum? 🙂

Enjoy!

 

 

 

Crazy Dog Mom Meets Photographer

Hello, all! Happy March! For those of you that know me personally (and probably not-so-personally) you know that I am crazy about my dogs. They are my second and third child, and I definitely treat them as though they are human!

Well, today, I am celebrating Willie’s second birthday! I decided to do more of a cake for him this year, as opposed to the boring old dog birthday cookies you get from the store. After a bit of google research, I read that strawberries are pretty good for dogs, and that they can eat angel food cake because it is mainly egg whites and flour. Another quick search revealed that whipped cream cheese and honey made a nice frosting for them.

So, I bought an angelfood cake (wasn’t about to make one of those!), some strawberries, and cream cheese and made my cake. The boys hounded me from start to finish, even tried to jump on the table to reach the cake! When it was all said and done, it was pretty fast, pretty cute, and they loved it.

Shelby and Jonathan’s E-Session

Shelby and Jonathan met in 2008 while working at Time Warner Cable. Jonathan approached Shelby to ask her about a new phone she’d gotten, and the rest was history! They’ve been dating for five years and got engaged in September of last year!

Jonathan planned a surprise proposal for Shelby and got all her friends and family involved! Shelby was supposed to be taking out a friend for birthday drinks, but it was all a clever distraction while he set up the surprise party.

I am photographing their wedding this September and am super excited! It was great getting to know them a little bit better at their engagement session at the University of Dayton a couple weeks ago! It was pretty warm outside, but the scenery was beautiful!

Chelsea’s Senior Session

It’s graduation season! It’s so great seeing all the pictures on social media of all the folks graduating kindergarten, high school, and college! I’ve had the pleasure of photographing Chelsea on several occasions, but nothing as exciting as her getting her Master’s Degree! She graduated from Wright State University, and I’m super proud of her! She got her makeup done for the occasion, got a couple fancy pairs of heels, and looked gorgeous for her graduation shoot!
