This is the week of the wonderful Hartford Fair. A fair I have enjoyed going to each year. MaKenna has the honor of being the 2016 Licking County Goat Queen.
MaKenna has been involved in 4-H for six year’s. She’s shown at the fair Boer Goats, Dairy Feeders, Dairy Heifers. And this year she will also show Hogs. She’s got a love for animals and has enjoyed showing her Goats.
She’s been fortunate to be raised on the family farm in Alexandria, a farm that was established in 1898 by her Great-Great Grandfather. A beautiful farm with all the perks of the country life.
MaKenna will start her Sophomore year this month at Northridge High School.
MaKenna was a delight to work with. All the best this week at the fair. I know she’s putting in a lot of time and loving every minute of it! Get out there and support your local fair!
Rachel and her brother Travis were good sports about having their photos taken, on such a hot summer’s day. On a beautiful plot of land that belongs to good friends and neighbor’s, we all felt the humidity, but we were going to push through.
Rachel is about to start her Sophomore year at Northridge. She is a cheerleader and enjoy’s running track, and 4-H. She made this adorable dress she is wearing for her school project ‘Clothing for School’. She won a ribbon from the fair for her assignment. Job well done!
Travis will start 5th grade this year. He enjoys doing Crossfit, and playing football. He’s also involved in 4-H, and enjoy’s playing the piano. Talented kid’s indeed!
It was funny watching these two play off one another. I’m sure they have their moments, but they seem to get on really well for siblings. Good job Mom and Dad, you are raising two wonderful children.
Rachel is one of those girls that has that old soul spirit about her. She’s a lovely girl with a sweet personality.
We went down to the creek bed and did our best not to slip in the water, those rocks are slippery. It was a toss up if it would be me or them to fall first, but thankfully we all made it out dry.
Thanks for a fun shoot, it was fun getting to meet you and your family!
One of my clients Heather had asked me to photograph her family, in celebration of her parents upcoming wedding anniversary. Scott and Heidi are celebrating their 30th year of marriage. That is awesome! So along with their daughters Heather and Hanna, and Heather’s family, Tim, Sydney and Abigail and Isabella.
I will admit, when I first met Heidi, I didn’t realize it was her mom, they all are so youthful. To be so lucky.
Scott and his girl’s…..
To reach 30 year’s is something to be proud of. I wish you heard more of these stories.
Isabella and Abigail are sweet and sassy for sure. Isabella wasn’t about having her photos taken this time around, and her baby sister was all smiles. With a bit of help from Grandma, we were able to get some happy photos.
Tim is surrounded by his girls. They keep him in line and they make him proud.
All that fighting to not have her photo taken and then this is the result…..I stand in awe of her sweetness.
Don’t you just want to cuddle her.
Hanna and Heather were two peas in a pod, I’m sure their parents have stories of their growing up. They all love on the babies and share a special bond.
The beauty of parenthood often leads to becoming Grandparents. What a joy they’ve had over the last 30 plus years. And may they have many more year’s to follow! Happy 30th Anniversary Scott and Heidi!
Sweet baby Leo was welcomed into the family, joining his big sis Annabelle, and mom and dad, Kyla and Gregg.
So much love for this little man…
Those vibrant blue’s….just like his sister.
Annabelle has been enjoying her new baby brother. She loves on him and enjoys cuddles with him.
Sometimes all it takes is one image to say it all….the bond of brother and sister.
Leo an his Lion outfit, so cute.
Annabelle is a doll, I’ve enjoyed photographing her in the past. She’s changed so much in the last year. She loved telling me all about her cats, stuffed and real.
Leo and Annabelle have been a blessing to Gregg and Kyla. I have enjoyed their sweet little family. Congrats on the birth of Leo!
It all started this spring as I was out antiquing as I tend to do often and I came across this old rusted crib. I didn’t even think about it, I just knew I had to get it. Then a few short week’s later, I was shopping at a antique shop in Nevada and I found this brilliant hand made quilt. How could I resist. An so became my latest mini sessions, Lil Darlin’s. I started out in Pickerington on the first night.
Charlie, Warren and Emily loved the bed in the field. They were quick to jump on it and try and get comfy.
Emily is growing into a well spoken, intelligent sweet girl.
Charlie has a smile that lights up the room for sure.
Warren melts your heart.
Charlie, you crack me up. Don’t even loose that passion to see the fun in everything.
I then got to celebrate a special 1 year old, Whitney. She was bright eye’d and full of smiles.
Sometimes I look at these sweet babies I’ve photographed as newborn’s and it blows me away how quickly it’s come up on their first birthday.
Whitney is a tiny lil girl. So petite. You just want to cuddle her. She’s absolutely stolen her family’s hearts.
Whitney was chill and just checking out the nature around her. A cupcake in the park was icing on the cake for her.
On the second night of the Lil Darlin’s Mini Sessions I was in Delaware where I got to meet this family for the first time. They have only just recently moved to Ohio. Jordan and Kacey an their adorable children, Tatum and Callum.
This handsome gent was giving me serious baby fever. Oh my goodness…
These two were so sweet on each other. Tatum didn’t hesitate to give her baby brother hugs and kisses, and Callum welcomed them.
It was great meeting you all. Welcome to Ohio, I hope you make lot’s of great memories here.
Jordan and Kacey’s neighbor’s are some long time clients of mine. Matthew, Shaina and their family, Eliana, Noah and Micah.
Matthew and Shaina seriously make the cutest kids.
Micah wasn’t so sure about all these picture taking stuff….those brow’s.
Noah is a lil heart breaker. He’s quiet and reserved, but he flashes that smile your way and you can’t help but to smile back.
Eliana is cute as a button, full of sass and charm.
I knew as soon as I took this first photo of Noah and Eliana, it was going to be my favorite. It wasn’t actually set up that way, but I shot it just before I had the kid’s change positions. When I got home an was able to see it, it was quickly marked as one of my all time favorite photos I’ve taken in all the year’s I’ve been doing photography. So timeless.
Micah was holding his head up so well for some of his photos. He did really well and no tear’s the whole session.
Next up, Maddie and her sister, Emery. So sweet they are together.
Jenni and her girl’s got a little one on one time without the boy’s for some photos. They had lot’s of fun and kisses and cuddles together.
That’s right Maddie, give her a big wet one!
Emery an those cheeks….don’t you just want to love on her. She’s precious.
In Granville, Kenzie and Kaitlyn came to visit. One of my cat’s was out and about and Kenzie was determined she would find him.
Kaitlyn is a great big sister. She is always helping Kenzie out to try to look at the camera, or taking her by the hand.
These two, they were so cute. They were giving endless kisses to one another, the next one always out doing the last.
Before they left, they had a swing.
Thanks to all the families that came out for the Lil Darlin’s Mini Sessions. I know there were a few that ended up not being able to make it. I have opened it up that if you’d like to book a session with the day bed, just let me know. I have gotten a lot of feed back on it. So it’s not just limited to this series of Mini’s.
