Fall mini session giveaway!

Last week I decided I wanted to give away one mini session for my Fall mini sessions, being held on September 30th.  I asked for people to submit stories about why they, or someone they know should be chosen to receive a free photos.  I got a handful of responses.  And then I had to pick one .... wow what pressure!  I did make a decision and have decided to give the 15 minute session to TWO "winners".  My heart goes out to them both...I can't make a decision.  And in respect for them both I'm not going to post their names, at least until I contact them and tell them what they've won!

Thank you all for your entries.  I hope to be able to offer this again in the future.  I have always been one to believe that if you give into the world what you want out of it, it will come back to you.  I've been blessed with my family, and with my business, and I only feel it's right to offer these sessions to someone deserving. 

Kristi & Matt are MARRIED!

 I first met with Kristi and Matt last year, and they were on top of the wedding planning.  I loved it.  They knew what they wanted for their big day, and they were out to get it done.  We started their day with them early Friday morning, with the girls getting ready at Kristi & Matt's house.  I hung out there with the girls, and Sarah came and met us later, then she headed to hang with the guys for a bit, then we met back up!  Their day was beautiful--- a wedding and reception at The Vault, in Columbus, Ohio.  Here are just a few of the TONS and TONS of photos Sarah and I took.  Matt & Kristi already have seen them ALL, and I know they love them because Kristi text me thrilled after I delivered them.  BUT I hope you all enjoy these :)





I'm not even going to tell you what happend right here...because it was too awesome.  And if word gets out- no one will ever be able to do it at a wedding again!  :)  If you're a bride or groom, with a good sense of humor ask me...I'll tell you :)
 Congratulations you two!  Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wonderful day!

Back to School...Back to School....

At the last minute I decided to offer back to school mini sessions.  I had been thinking about it for awhile, but just didn't plan it.  I only had two families but it was a perfect evening of mini sessions!  These kids are adorable.  We met at Gantz Park in the evening light and had some fun. 

 It took her a little while to warm up....but then she was cracking me up!  We did a few quick ones with her brother...and I mean QUICK. He's a fast little bugger!

I've been photographing these two lovely girls for awhile...I love them.  They are always dressed so adorable, and are willing to do whatever I ask of them--while chatting with me the entire time.  Love that!

Little miss....she stole a bite from an apple while no one was looking.  Then we busted her out--err her mom did.  FUNNY! 

 Thank you Amanda and Omega for bringing your kiddos out last week.  I hope you enjoy your images!! 

Bo & Jess are MARRIED!

  I went to high school with one of Jess' brothers.  So I was thrilled when she called me to meet about shooting their big day.   Jess & Bo got married on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.  They had a small short ceremony at their church and then a larger reception afterwards.  Congratulations you two, I wish you many, many years of happiness!! Enjoy your sneak peek! 

 High Five!  That's their thing :)

 Tacos for dinner? YES, Please! 

 Lots of rice crispy treats for the kiddos! (and me!)

 She has 12 nieces and nephews...and two more on the way!  :) (We're missing one in this photo)
