Glam Session {Brooke}

Brooke came to see me for her Glam session.  I had never photographed anyone with blue hair before.......with her beautiful tattoos and blue hair she pulled this look off and was an absolute gorgeous model. 

Cody & Taylor

Cody and Taylor exchanged vows on a hot afternoon overlooking the waters at The Bronson. They had many laughs and tears; a few flowers forgotten and much dancing on the dance floor. It was a beautiful day and fun had by all.

Alex & Mason {Engaged}

I go from watching my baby girl graduate high school to her leaving her freshman year to play softball in collage.  We go together on a trip to Guatemala, to her giving birth to my first grandchild and now to the next year of planning as they are engaged !!!

Billy {Senior Simple Studio}

I was fortunate to use Billy to try out my simple studio set up.  I can say it worked out pretty well :) How handsome is this kid?!?!

{Engaged}

A few pictures to showcase this gorgeous couple :)  I'm so excited to be shooting their wedding in the fall!

Guatemala

There are times that I am at a loss for words that describe how I am feeling; telling you about this trip is one of those.  I will blog about Sam's family at a later time.  For now, allow my pictures to tell you the story of my trip.

Sweet Baby Vinny, 2 months

Sweet baby Vinny is 2 months old.  This small baby melts my heart.  He spent 4 days in the hospital with RSV and is finally feeling better.  I wanted to take just few photographs before I leave next week for Guatemala.  How precious is he :)

Kelly's Tween session

Kelly and her beautiful twin girls came to see me for a tween session.  Both girls rocked their classic and casual outfits.  It's going to be hard for Momma to pick out her favorites!

{Lately}

This past fall has been my busiest yet.  I over-booked myself, as usual.  My free time was slim but as always a camera was kept close by.  I did make time to carve pumpkins and enjoyed several walks with 70 degree weather.

Alex's baby shower was held at Nolan's Barn in Wakeman.  Such a beautiful venue; I just wish I had hired a photographer to capture all that went into the planning.  I decided months ago that Alex's baby shower would be themed vintage, recycled and thrifted.  Almost everything that went into her shower was thrifted.  I purchased a hundred plus snack plates; vintage saucers for desserts and my cousin decorated the barn with flowers from her garden.  It was simply beautiful.

I am extremely thankful for all of my photography, but I am ready for a break.  With Alex due in the next few weeks it's time for catch up on my editing and then finally, my time to become "Gigi". 

Dahl Wedding

I finally finished up this wedding session this weekend.   Here are a few of my favorite from their special day!

My weekend through pictures

Before our exchange student went back we decided to take a mini vacation to Hocking Hills.  We enjoyed a nice relaxing 3 day weekend of beautiful scenery and lots of hiking :)

My weekend through pictures

I spent the entire 3 day weekend being busy, yet relaxing as well.  I had no sessions, but lots to edit and culling to do.  I spent a much needed day of rest from my photography and just relaxed.  I took Sam and his friend fishing and just enjoyed the down time I had.  Here is my weekend through pictures!
