I was a glorious October day when I met the "B" family and their two daughters for a portrait session at a local metro park. Once we started to wander through the park for the session, the littlest sibling got comfortable and decided she really liked to pose and have her picture taken!! Meanwhile, the older sister started collecting leaves of all shapes and sizes. She managed to find the biggest leaf I've ever see, as well as the teeniest, tiniest leaf I've ever seen!! I was honored to receive one of the miniatures as a momento of our day at the park. The other day I reached into my pocket and felt something.... I pulled out one of those tiney leaves! And I smiled!
Here is a sneak peek from that session!
This session was in partnership with The Littlest Heroes Project.

One weekend in October, I was honored to photograph a wonderful couple's 50th wedding anniversary. Their whole family got together to celebrate this special accomplishment and to honor them. Family and commitments are so special, and I always enjoy taking part in celebrating and documenting these special events. This is just a quick little preview from that special day!

It was a beautiful October day when I met the "S" family at a local park for a family portrait session. We had a fabulous morning complete with some tree climbing, shoulder riding, playground time... and even some balloon fun with their Newfie Puppy Nina! All in all a fun morning! Here is a sneak peek from that wonderful session!

I had a session a week or so ago, with Mocha and his owner. Mocha is a rescued Brittany Spaniel, and his early days were pretty sad. But he is one lucky and happy dog now!! His owner understands the importance of patience, love and training. Those three things can make all the difference for a dog who was believed to have no chance. Mocha has his second chance and is loving life!! This was a fun session, that took place at Highbanks Metro Park on a beautiful Central Ohio fall day!

I LOVE vintage things! I LOVE photography! And I LOVE blending these two passions into a trip to thrift stores and flea markets to see what kind of fun things, and props I can find to use in my portrait sessions!! Some favorite recent finds are shown here... these wonderful vintage trucks and the fabulous vintage camera! These trucks have such wonderful substance to them, and I find myself wondering about what kind of life they've had... what children played with them. What was life like when they were made.. when they found their way into their little owner's hands...
These are the biggest hits for my sessions! Little boys just love them (and their dads do, too!)! They invite play and imagination... and make for some great shots!! And of course, what photographer and thrift store junkie could walk away from this great vintage camera?! I've heard they take some incredible black and white images. Now just to get it open and find the right film... and then maybe explore my little corner of the world with this baby in my hand! But always my eternal problem........... NOT ENOUGH TIME! I've decided I need about 5 more lifetimes to do all and be all that I want to do and be! So much to do, so much to learn, so much to explore, so much to be!
Oh... Where did I get these little vintage delights?? My little secret!! There is this really great place that I found here in Columbus, Ohio. They get these fantastic trucks in from time to time... & at a killer price!!! Ssshh! Can't tell!
