This lovely is Katie. She’s excited for the year ahead. Senior year is always full of exciting times and the anticipation of what is ahead. Katie is a student at New Albany High School.
Katie had such a brilliant spirit about her. She was very comfortable in front of the camera.
We had a lot of laugh’s during our session. Katie is very down to earth and a sweetheart.
Katie is looking around at local colleges in Ohio. She hopes to major in Visual Communication Design. She adores drawing and is very talented. She has been published three times in Celebrating Art. She won National Scholastic Art award, as well as being recognized by the school board.
An avid animal lover, Katie spent this past summer collaborating with CHA Animal Shelter. She took her talent and created some wonderful pieces that were auctioned off, with proceeds going to the Animal Shelter.
This image was by far my favorite…it’s funny when you get to the editing process, you start to see things differently than when you shot it. It’s a process I love so much.
With just a hint of fall coming, Katie wore her smile with no fuss even though it was a little hot for a jacket.
All the best to you in the road ahead Katie. I’m positive your talent will take you far. It was so fun working with you!!
Tom and Denise and their happy family, and attentive dogs. It’s one thing to keep the kiddo’s attention, but to have the dog’s, even better.
Robbie, Lizzie and Reagan were such good pups, smiling for the camera. The Chihuahua Robbie is 11, the Boarder Collie is 11, and Reagan the Pitbull is 9 in dog year’s. Tom and Denise’s kids, Andrew and his wife Amy an their daughters Allyson and McKenna and Bryant and their daughter, Jenny an her husband Todd, along with their daughters, Addison and Lucy.
Tom and Denise wanted not only to have some updated photos with their family but also with their aging dogs. They are just as much part of the family.
Allyson and Bryant are 5, and their sister McKenna is 3.
Lucy is 5, and Addison is 6.
The swing in my yard is always a kid favorite……
Denise and Tom have so much to smile about a great son and daughter, an their spouses an their sweet grandbabies and fur babies. What more do you need!
It was a birthday celebration photo session for Jan, given by her lovely daughters, Rachel and Lynsey an their families. We met at Northbank Park to capture some photos of the whole family together.
The kids enjoyed swinging from their parent’s arm’s, always wanting one more swing.
Jan moved to the United States from England not long ago so she could be closer to her girl’s and grandchildren. What a wonderful blessing to have her closer. Fynn, Olive and Jacson all adore her.
It’s easy to see where Lynsey and Rachel get their beauty…..they shared a few laughs and cherished their moments together.
The kids were enthralled by storytelling by J.C.
Dino and Rachel and Olive came up from Atlanta to surprise Jan for her special birthday. They were eager to spend some time with the family and catch up.
Lynsey an her adorable boy’s showing her love. How precious are they!
I love moments like these, where they just loose themselves in the moment… those genuine smiles.
J.C. an his crew.
Jan I am sure is proud of the family her daughter’s have created.
A sweet moment between Rachel and Olive.
These two were a hoot this shoot. One minute they were picking on each other and the next loving on each other. Boys will be boys, but they are absolute sweethearts.
After our photo session, they had dinner plans downtown. The kids were eager for some much anticipated ice cream. One a hot evening like it was, it was the perfect ending to a great evening.
Hope you had a wonderful birthday Jan! The best things in life aren’t the gift’s, but being with those you love =)
Upon my arrival at the park, I was blown away at the fields of flowers at Homestead Park. It was gorgeous and breathtaking. I met up with this familiar bunch one morning for their updated family session. We’d had a plan for several months of another shoot, but things just never feel into place right, but this turned out pretty darn well. We’ll eventually get to that other spot! Aaron and Jennifer and their daughters Anna and Amelia just had fun with the nature around them.
The girls were enjoying smelling the flowers and running about. The colors were so vibrant. It was like being in a painting.
The girl’s have gotten so big since the last I photographed them. Anna has lost some front teeth, but that didn’t stop her from having a beautiful smile. And Amelia has become such a young lady.
These two sisters are two peas in a pod. They are all girl, with some Tom Boy thrown in. What one does, the other follows without hesitation.
It’s not that often in the later morning to be able to capture the sun in a way I want..this is one of those welcome surprise images when I get home to edit.
The girl’s spend many days playing at this park so they were sure to show me some of their favorite areas. The love to climb the tree’s, play in the tunnel, running and swinging…they do it all.
Great catching up with you all again…….so glad we were finally able to get together! Till next time!
I had the pleasure of meeting this family for the first time recently on a beautiful evening in the park. Lucus, Mindy and their kids Kayden and Kenley.
The kids enjoyed playing down in the ravine at the park. Tossing rocks and climbing about. They did their best to not get dirty for their photos.
Kayden and Kinley seem to share a strong bond with each other. They had no hesitations in hanging together.
Kinley is 6 year’s old.
Kayden is 7 year’s old.
This bridge was not very sturdy…..it made me a little nervous having them stand on it…but they found their balance with each other and all was well.
Lucas works in law enforcement. I knew right away the special flag he wanted to incorporate into the shoot. The Thin Blue Line is a special flag for law enforcement that represents camaraderie. Not only does it hold a special place in their heart’s, but mine too. I have worked for law enforcement and have friends on the force around the country. These men and women put their lives in danger each and every day they put on their uniform and badge. They risk so much. And they just want to come home each night to their families at the end of the day.
Great meeting you all, that was a fun session getting to know you all better. And your sweet kids….job well done!
