| Dailyn & Logan Wedding Programs 2017 |

On October 7, Dailyn & Logan tied the knot at the Williams Co. Fairgrounds Bridge!  I was honored to put their wedding programs together for their guests!  They opted for a tall, thin, two sided design with their ceremony on the front and their wedding party and thank you’s on the back!  A bold black text color printed on a gorgeous kraft paper made for the perfect addition to their already beautiful ceremony!  What a beautiful fall day they had, Congratulations Dailyn & Logan!

| Reeb Family 2017 |

Saturday I headed out to Goll Woods to join this fun loving family for their session!  We had a beautiful, warm fall day to capture all of them, and their antics!  We ventured just a little ways into the woods and off the beaten path for some great spots and beautiful fall colors!  The little one kept us on our toes and made sure we were moving along and when we weren’t, she was sure to get Great Grandma moving in the right direction and borrowed her chair for a much needed break!  Thank you Reeb Family for a wonderful afternoon, some great jokes, and I can’t wait to capture all of you again!

| Burkhardt Family 2017 |

Last Sunday I got to spend a beautiful day out at Oak Openings with this wonderful family!  It was great to get together with Aaron and Natalie again and meet their two beautiful pups!  Loki and Daisy were so sweet and did so well, even with all the people that were out and about that day!  We decided to take off  down some trails to find some beautiful spots and around ever turn and bend, it was just gorgeous!  The colors are just beginning to turn and the smell of the evergreens made it the perfect fall setting!  Loki loved it so much he had to get up close with Natalie to share his excitement and Daisy was on a mission to fine the perfect spots!  Thank you Burkhardt Family for a wonderful afternoon, happy anniversary a little early too!

| AHS & RHS Alumni Band 2017 |

Fall, the smell of falling leaves, cool rains, pumpkins, mums, it’s my favorite time of the year! October also means it’s Archbold High School & Ridgeville High School Alumni Band night! I am honored to be able to capture this evening each year, to see faces I don’t see often, catch up with them, and reminisce! What started out as a rainy morning and afternoon, turned into a gorgeous night for everyone. Events are such a fun thing to capture, you never know what’s going to happen, a drummer could break out into dancing to James Brown or the flag girls could lift trumpet player! A huge thank you to all involved for making this evening happen for the Alumni, the 2017 AHS Marching Band, the speaker Mr. Hoverman, current AHS Band Director Beth Voll & her amazing staff, it was a fun night to be a part of! Looking forward to next year already! Go Streaks & Falcons!

| Tyler & Olivia Engagement |

What a wonderful session last Saturday to kick off the fall season!  The leaves are beginning to change, however it’s been unseasonably hot and humid, weather that we would normally see in July and August!  Despite the heat I spent a wonderful Saturday evening with Tyler & Olivia!  We started out at a beautiful location in the country and then headed downtown to use the wonderful old brick buildings, all the while staying in the shade to keep cool.  Now that fall is here, that also means football season, and we couldn’t do a fall session without including some shots in their favorite team colors!  With so many wonderful images from the session, it was hard to find just a few sneak peeks to share.  Thank you for a great evening, Congrats Tyler & Olivia!

| Allen Pregnancy Announcement |

Almost a year ago this wonderful couple said I do, and when Melissa mentioned doing 1 year anniversary pictures, she asked if we could do them a little differently!  Of course!  Instead of a one year anniversary session, Brian & Melissa are proud to announce that they are expecting a little “shooter” this coming March!  Of course when shooting an announcement session, it usually means that very few people know and that I have to keep a huge secret; so if I happen to run into their family or friends, means I can’t give the secret away!  I’m so glad Melissa’s mom knew when I ran into her at the fair and was the one to bring it up!  ;o)  We spent a beautiful Saturday afternoon exploring one of Brian’s family’s woods in search of the perfect spots!  I had just as much fun capturing them Saturday as I did the day of their wedding, even if there were just a few more mosquitoes!  I’m so excited for these two and can’t wait for their maternity session, capturing that beautiful baby bump!  Congrats Brian & Melissa, I can’t wait to meet the little “shooter!”

| Patriot Outdoors Hunting |

Hunting season is right around the corner!  The leaves will be turning, the air will be cooling, and hunters will be itching to get in the woods!  I was beyond excited when Jeremy came to me wanting to create this logo for his non profit organization; he brought a great logo that was previously created and it compliments the soldiers and flag logo perfectly!  Patriot Outdoors Hunting is a non profit organization that helps American service men and women after their time in the service and on the battle field has come to a close.  They help these heroes in a multitude of different ways, just one of them being through using the beauty of nature and the great outdoors.  A huge thank you to the great men and women of this country whom have given and are giving to protect the freedoms we all enjoy today!  Thank you Jeremy for this wonderful opportunity to be a part of this amazing organization!

| Plotts & Jackson Wedding Programs |

October will quickly be upon us, the weather will be cooling and the colors changing!  A few weeks ago you saw the invitations for Skyler & Kylie, now you get a glimpse of their gorgeous wedding programs!  Kylie wanted to tie the programs in with the invitations, but yet keep them unique in their own design.  We incorporated the same colors, tiger lily, and the highlighted boarder, but used them in new ways to create that one of a kind look.  It has been my pleasure to help this wonderful couple create something beautiful for their special day!  Congrats and best wishes Skyler & Kylie!

| Ridge Kids 4-H Club

One of my favorite things to do is create designs for organizations that hold a special place in my heart and that I get to be a part of!  It’s been a few years since our 4-H club did t-shirts, so we decided that with so many new members, it was time for an updated look!  We went with a simple, yet unique look this year, using halftones in the background to help give it a dimensional look and help to make our club name stand out.  Adding in hoodies and long sleeve t’s, families could gear up for the 4-H year and fair, which starts next week already!  Thanks to everyone, parents, members, and my fellow advisers for a wonderful year so far!  Congrats to everyone on judging in July and good luck to those exhibiting livestock at the fair!

| Ohio Flags of Honor |

Our small community was excited and humbled to host the Ohio Flags of Honor this last Saturday & Sunday, and what a beautiful weekend it was!  With many helping to set up Friday night, the wonderful ceremony of placing the flags and reading of the names of the fallen Ohio Heroes on Saturday, and to the many whom came to visit Saturday night and into Sunday.  Our American Legion Post 454 did an amazing job of putting a great program together for the Ohio Flags of Honor!   Click here to check out their Facebook page and see some of their images from the weekend!  As a one of the advisers to our local 4-H club, we were honored to have been asked by the Legion Commander to help place the flags along with another 4-H Club, Freedom Royal Farmers, members of our local Fire Department, Veterans, current members of our Military, and many other community members!  While I was there to help get our 4-Hers started and organized, I couldn’t resist bringing my camera to capture this once in a lifetime event, it was truly amazing!  Thank you to those whom have served and are serving!
