Amy and Nick stood hand in hand facing the crowded reception venue. Their favorite people were all there, cheering, clapping, and whooping for the newly weds. We could all tell they were both overcome with emotion. Nick was smiling ear to ear and Amy was literally hopping up and down with excitement. They did it. […]

When Kaitlyn reached out earlier this year to inquire about her wedding photography, she mentioned early on that the theme was going to be A Harry Potter Christmas. Needless to say I was completely on board. I had read the entire series to my son when he was a young child and fell in love […]

A Slytherin Kind of Love

Mary was the second practitioner that I met through my Dayton Doula project but she was the first that specialized in post partum care. I was instantly intrigued when I started to learn about her role in the childbirth experience. I’ve heard of labor doulas before but never a postpartum one. A postpartum doula provides […]

A month or so before their wedding, I usually like to reach out to my clients to touch base, say hi, go over timelines, and make sure I have the names of all of the vendors that they will be using so I can tag them later. When I was chatting with Kelsey about her […]

It was a beautiful Sunday in early September, but with Saturday vibes since the following day was Labor Day. I was working with Lisa with Blush and Bloom Weddings and we were getting ready for the reception reveal. It’s one of the newer trends in a wedding day that I adore (along with a private […]

When Brooke reached out to do a Maternity Session, I was so excited to see her, her husband Matt, and especially their darling little girl again. The last time I had seen little Enola, she was a sweet tiny little newborn. The time before that was her Momma’s Maternity Session. (And the time before that, […]

Jolly and Joe’s wedding day flowed effortlessly. It was a warm sunny afternoon in Downtown Dayton and things were getting started at the Brightside Event Center. Jolly’s attention to detail and complete thoughtfulness shined throughout the entire day, from the gifts that she gave her bridal party to the way she interacted with all of […]

It was the last day of June in Yellow Springs, Ohio. The weather was warm, sunny, and a bit unpredictable as midwestern summers tend to be. Yet every storm cloud seemed to roll over without a single raindrop. And inside Mill’s Park Hotel, the staff was preparing for a wedding celebration. The banquet room was […]

Rachel and Brandon’s Wedding

I met Kathy and Chris last Spring when they reached out for an engagement session. They were an adorable couple, laughing and giggling at the endearing spectacle of portraits. I could tell right away that they made a great team. And I was so excited when they reached out to have me capture their wedding […]

Kathy & Chris

When Alex found out she was pregnant, her Mother immediately knew she was pregnant with twins. Although twins run in her family, they are still rather rare (What to Expect rates it at about only 3%). But what I think is even more amazing is that these little ones are scheduled to come in early […]
