| Lopez Family |

This family radiates love.  In every action, word, and general kindness!  Once you graduate high school it’s easy to lose contact with classmates as you go in your own directions and start your own families.  Last Sunday I had the absolute honor of capturing a classmate of mine and her family!  Meeting her sweet husband and adorable daughter was so much fun; not only did we catch up, but made plans to get together in the future when they are in the area!  Our husbands hit it off and I can’t wait for our little guy to meet their daughter for play dates!  From old brick buildings downtown, to golden wheat fields and old red barns, what better time to pull out the vintage couch and explore!  I’m so excited for them with the arrival of their next little one just a few short months away, Jazmine looks so beautiful, the pictures just don’t do her justice!  Ale definitely keeps them on their toes, but couldn’t be cuter; Jose you are one lucky man!  Congrats Lopez family and we can’t wait to get together again!

| Hamman Maternity |

Summer has quickly arrived in Ohio!  Last weekend we braved the hot and muggy weather for a beautiful evening with Justin & Ashley for their maternity session!  A gorgeous couple with a house divided, Mama loves John Deere and Daddy loves Case IH!  They were looking for an evening of fun, simplicity, and country!  And a few cows thrown in!  They don’t know the gender of their little one, but that’s one of the best surprises, and no matter what it is, it is already very loved!  Congrats Justin & Ashley, can’t wait to see that little one!

A huge thank you to Andy & Darla Bok for allowing us to roam their farm that evening!

| Carter 1 Year |

Last weekend was a beautiful spring day for this handsome little man’s 1 Year pictures & cake smash!  His cake even matched his gorgeous blue eyes!  He had just woken up from a nap in his car seat so we started out playing at the park and then just as we were getting ready for his cake I caught him watching me and was able to capture his perfect, bright blue eyes!  As soon as he saw the cake, his little fingers went right to it and the yummy goodness right into his belly!  After a knee in the cake and some grass in his fingers and hair, Carter decided he had had enough and it was time to clean up!  A big thank you to Carter and his family for a fun afternoon and a Happy Birthday Carter!

| Stewart Wedding |

Last weekend I was honored to be able to shoot along side fellow photographer & friend Lauren Beers!  We headed out to Nazareth Hall in Grand Rapids, OH for the beautiful wedding of Kelsey & Sean!  Despite the day’s previous rain and moving their ceremony inside, the day was sunny & gorgeous for some outdoor photos and what a beautiful venue inside!  From their energetic bridal party and two handsome little boys, to great family and friends, a wonderful time was had by all.  Congrats Kelsey & Sean!

| Skye Cinema Family Film Festival 2017 |

Technology has changed so many different things over the years, not only cameras and phones, but the movies we watch as well!  Who remembers watching those old school Disney VHS tapes?!  The capabilities that movie creators have these days in unbelievable!  I was thrilled when a local movie theater asked me to create their Free Family Film Festive posters!  They offer several days during the summer months were families can get together and watch movies in their theater for FREE!  How amazing is it that they are giving back to their community in this way!?  It was so fun to bring the characters from each of these movies into one layout to create a fun and exciting atmosphere!  If you head out to Skye Cinema on one of these days, make sure to thank and support the sponsors listed, without their help, this wonderful event wouldn’t be possible for local families!  Thank you Skye Cinema for creating such a wonderful family event!

| Ryan Wiemken Graduation Invitations |

This last summer we headed out in the warm morning heat to capture Ryan’s senior pictures!  From wheat fields to dairy farms and bale wagons to silos, we got so many great images!  I can’t believe we are already creating his graduation invitations and that graduation is just around the corner.  It’s fun to see which images seniors and their families choose to showcase on their invites; and even more fun to see which throwback ones they like to add!  What a cute little farmer he was!  Congrats and Best of Luck Ryan!

Baby shower’s have long been a staple in welcoming a little one!  However, the last few years has seen a rise in Diaper Parties!  Normally with a package of diapers as the gift of choice.  While the ladies are showering the Mama-to-be, the gentlemen are now honoring the Dad-to-be!  Anything from BBQ’s to brewery tours, the sky has become the limit!  Justin’s friends will be joining him on June 3 for an evening out, while his wife, Ashley, enjoy’s her baby shower that day!  Have a great time gentlemen!

| Sausser Family 2017 |

Northwest Ohio weather has been unpredictable at best this spring, but last Friday we had a gorgeous day out to capture this beautiful family!  We headed out to Lauber Tree Farm to borrow their beautiful old barn and trees!  Our session was filled with exuberant giggles, dandelion picking, pine cone collecting, and two sets of little baby toes!  I even got a little help from Emmy setting up each shot!  It was an honor to capture you all and to spend my Friday evening with you, thank you Sausser Family for a wonderful time!

| Ashley Hamman Baby Shower Invitations |

In our area a house divided usually means OSU/Michigan or Tigers/Indians, but it can also mean John Deere/Case!  That’s exactly the case for the Hamman family!  This June Ashley’s family and friends will be showering her and baby Hamman with lots of love and all things baby; and hopefully a lot of JD green!  I loved getting to combine their love of tractors into an elegant summer design.  June will be here before we know it and family and friends will be ready to celebrate; and then shortly thereafter, Baby Hamman!
