Nick is a great kid. He was part of the summer swim team group that my son knows. It's funny, I never knew his last name so it was a pleasant surprise to recognize him when we met for his session. I love his fashion sense and his sense of humor. I'm very grateful I got to take his photos and I'm excited to share them with you. Have an awesome weekend!
The older I get, the more I realize that life is all about relationships: friends, family, clients, client/friends, the awesome guy at McDonald's that knows how I like my coffee, the sweetest waitress ever at El Vaquero who always has a smile for me and my friends. You get the idea. I am always so grateful for the positive people in my life. Leigh is one of those people. She's always got a smile on her face and when you see her with the sweet kiddos at Ascension Preschool, you know she's doing a job she's meant to do. So, I was pretty stoked to get to photograph her cute as a button, soccer playing daughter, Lindsay.
We met at the Scioto Mile and had all kinds of senior photo fun!
When your family expands by 4 feet, you have to share the good news!
Hi Frankie! Welcome to the family!! Your brother, Steve, is really excited you're here.
No... Really... He is happy you're here.
Okay... I guess it's time to be normal... I was just having so much fun with Frankie and Steve and cracking myself up at puppy sibling rivalry. But seriously, how stinkin' cute are these pups and their parents?!! When I saw that my friends, Lauren & Rob were getting a new pup, I had to get photos!! I had visions of wrapping Frankie up like a new baby but... she had other ideas. Enjoy the photos! We could all use sweet & smiling pups these days!
I'm seriously a wedding nerd. I love every bit of weddings. I love the little bits of nervousness right before the ceremony. I love the hush of the guests when the bride is finally in view. I love the slide of the rings onto their fingers, the kiss, the giddy looks on their faces after being pronounced. The way they're dying to kiss during all their portraits. The way the parents beam with pride, the sentimental tears and the the looks on people's faces as they fight back the tears. I love wedding cake, sparkly rings, dancing and the laughter of a packed dance floor. I love it all.
And this wedding had it all.
Congratulations to Erica and Jackson! Thank you so much for choosing me!
I'm guessing we met Cole's family shortly after we moved to Dublin. They are just one of those families... They're fun. They're good people. They have great kids. They're just the kind of people you're glad to know. Over the years, I've photographed them---mostly at swim meets because our kiddos all swam together until this year. Cole and my son, Aidan, played soccer together. Nothing like sideline bonding among parents. ;)
Cole is an awesome kid. To see him at swimming, playing with and mentoring the little swimmers tells me his chosen field of teaching will be absolutely perfect for him. I have no doubt he'll be a great teacher. We only did a quick session and will do more later but I truly enjoyed our time together and I look forward to taking more photos again soon.
