Behind the rows of white chairs, a painter stood quietly, etching out tracings of the Bride and Groom as they stood hand in hand. It was a gorgeous late August afternoon with big rolling clouds and warm bright sunshine. Carly and Jon’s dog Kali was weaving in and out of the couple and their bridal […]

It was the first week of January and the wind chill constantly reminded us. Kari, Tom, and I met up at Hills and Dales Metro park for a really REALLY special photography session. They wanted a gallery full of images and portraits to use for the most joyous and emotional journey of their life – […]

Art Museums have always felt like they represented something sacred – an intimate connection between the viewer and the artist. Like peering into the depths of humanity in all of it’s forms and colors and emotions. Which is why I LOVE to photograph weddings at the Dayton Art Institute. The aesthetics are as beautiful and […]

First birthdays are always filled with so much joy. The milestones around this age seem endless, much to the delight of the parents and family.

The Dayton Arcade has been a completely hidden gem for a few decades after closing it’s doors in the 90s. Several attempts to renovate always seem to end abruptly, much to the disappointment of the Dayton natives who remembered the true splendor of this unique and exquisite architectural masterpiece. And now, adding to the rich […]

The chilly February morning air left a tinge of pink on both of her cheeks as she looked around slightly unsure of the situation. But when her baby doll appeared amongst the items packed for […]

It was a chilly afternoon on the eve of winter solstice. The breeze was cold and damp and the gray clouds in the sky seemed to gently fall upon the horizon. Brooke arrived to the park with her squad surrounding her while on a rounded teal bridge, back turned, waited her groom. Matt was beaming, […]

I pulled up to a beautiful brick home in the Historic Oregon District that was nestled under a canopy of bright orange and yellow maple leaves. Inside was bustling, as are most locations where the bride is getting ready. The two Mothers were working harmoniously in the kitchen while bridesmaids were upstairs putting finishing touches […]

Kathy and Joe: An Oregon District Wedding

There always seems to be one element of the wedding planning process that the bride really seems to adore. For some, it’s planning the party that their friends and loved ones will talk about for years. For others, it’s coordinating all the little details that tell their love story. For Carly, it was dreaming up […]

Everything about the Maternity session for Tara looked straight out a Fairy Tale. Her long wavy blond hair almost glistened in the last remaining light of a late Autumn’s day. The floral wreath looked as though it came from the wildflower field behind her. Her dress was the perfect shade of a soft nude pink, […]
