Chase knew, for certain, that he wanted his senior pictures done at the rink, where he spends much of his time. His mom was so sweet and SO happy to be getting some shots of her handsome guy! While he was most focused on the indoor shots, we also managed to convince him to step outside for a few, as well. After all, it was a gorgeous day! Thanks, Chase for putting up with us that day ;-) It was fun!!
I had the chance to spend an evening this past summer doing a senior session with Tucker. Not only is he a hard working, well-spoken young man, but he’s also a pretty fantastic Cross Country athlete. At the time of the session my son was on the fence about joining the XC team, himself, and after talking to Tucker and his mom about it, I knew I could convince him to give it a “go”. My son ended up joining the team and would tell me about how one of the really nice high school boys would help the middle school students and encourage them. I don’t know how many of you spend time with seniors, but let me tell you…THAT is awesome. He made such a good impression on P and I am so grateful for that.
In addition to being kind and athletic, he also knew how to work the camera. He pretty much rocked this session (so did Jackson!)!
Mr. N made his debut into the world right after mom, Blair, squeezed in her maternity session. Thanks for waiting, N! Once mom, dad, and baby were all settled in at home, I spent some time with them, doing a lifestyle newborn session. His little sleeping self was SO precious. Not to mention…THAT HAIR!!!! I couldn’t even. Check out these images from this sweet session!
When my good friend Blair told us she was going to have a baby, there was no doubt in my mind that she was going to be a stunning mama-to-be. She took such great care of that growing baby, as well as herself. You’d find her in the gym right up until the week she delivered! Around 39 weeks, she mentioned maybe we should do a maternity session, so we got right to it! Little did we know, she’d give birth to an incredible little boy just 3 days later!!! Isn’t she amazing?! Stay tuned for the newborn session, as well!
So, I suppose it would be obvious that I am WAY behind in blogging if I tell you that this maternity announcement has now turned into a beautiful baby girl who is nearly a month old?! Nevertheless, check out this ADORABLE announcement that was all planned out by the gorgeous mama! I loved her vision and these two were a blast to work with. Congrats and much love to this happy family of THREE!!!
On the coldest day of the year (or maybe ever), I was thinking about a session I did on the HOTTEST day of the year! Libby, a Meadville senior, braved some major heat (in her jeans and long sleeves!) to get some shots with her horse, Moose. We found a couple shaded areas so it wouldn’t be quite so overwhelming, and they both did great. I had so much fun with these two!!
Sometimes, we get a “warm” winter day and beautiful things happen. Suddenly, 60 degrees feels like 80, and we’re able to run and play outside as if it were spring or summer! For this session, we capitalized on that and grabbed some really fun shots. I am STILL cracking up at the number of poses and dance moves this kid displayed during our time together. HILARIOUS!! <3
As a football player, Ethan knew that scheduling a session during the fall would be a bit difficult, so he opted for a winter snow session. He was a total trooper about the cold and I LOVE the results!
The S family is seriously awesome. I have known them for about 13 years and had the pleasure of capturing their family pictures since 2008. Watching them grow is pretty amazing. Each year is as unique and special as their relationship. I LOVE these people right here.
It’s always such a great experience when you can watch a couple grow. I did an engagement session for these two beautiful humans a few years ago, and also had the pleasure of doing their maternity pictures! Let me tell you…these. two. are. FUN!! We had such a blast at both sessions. They don’t live around here, but I am anxious to meet the little girl they’ve welcomed into this world (YES, I am SUPER behind in blogging!!). I’ll quit rambling now and get to the good stuff. Here you have it…Allie + Bryan (+baby!)!
I love any excuse to dress up. Halloween is no exception. In honor of today, I thought I’d post a throwback from last year. We decided to go as “the classics”…a vampire, a werewolf, Frankenstein, bride of Frankenstein, and Wednesday Addams. To say we have fun with this would be an understatement. I’m excited to share this year’s costumes tonight. Stay tuned!

I can’t WAIT for these sessions! They are going to be amazing!!
These three kiddos were SO much fun to work with. They each had their own ideas for the session and I loved it! Mom was going to sit this one out, but the kids and I convinced her to get in the frame. Moms…GET IN THE PICTURE!! They’re only little for a short time. You will NEVER regret having those memories. Even if it’s just a shot or two…DO IT!!
Fall can provide a gorgeous backdrop for photography, and this family session was no exception. The A’s were so much fun! I loved being able to watch the boys play, and getting to know mom and dad. We had an absolutely perfect day, too! Here is a glimpse into our time together! Thank you, A family, for choosing me to capture you!
I have had the opportunity to photograph this brave, adventurous young lady since she was just nine months old. I can't begin to tell you how amazing it is to watch these little ones grow up. The time is so fleeting and they change SO much from year to year...being able to capture these moments is priceless.
I am admittedly very behind on my blogging, but since I have an all-new, start-from-scratch blog, maybe it's not a bad thing ;-)
Last fall, I was able to photograph the beautiful S family! Not only are they incredibly good-looking, they're also pretty awesome people. <3

This year marks ten years in business. TEN. It's really hard to believe that TEN years have gone by since I bit the bullet and decided to make photography my career. A lot has changed, both personally and professionally, in that time. Whether it's a coincidence or fate, I also married an amazing man this year, so when I was trying to decide how to change up my business for this anniversary, a complete rebrand and name change just seems to be the obvious answer.
So, I bring to you....
It's simple and to the point, the way I like it. I'm feeling refreshed and excited about this year, and I am excited to grow and change with you all. Thank you so much to each and every client, friend, and family member who has supported and encouraged me. It's been an incredible 10 years and I look forward to the next 10, as well! XOXO
