This beauty is my precious sister Michaiah. I love this girl so much. She is so kind to pose for me on occasion. We went to my grandparents for a few days last week. I recently bought a battery pack so that I can bring my studio lights outside. I am so excited to start using them for my client sessions. So while we were at my grandparent’s cabin I brought it all along for a little mini session. The set up was very easy and so reliable. But it was a bit challenging climbing down the raven and balancing all my equipment between rocks. But we had fun together and now Michaiah got a little more practice posing before her senior pictures next year! 😉
Check out this gorgeous girl! This is Marissa, my model and sister. 😉 Isn’t she a natural? My photographer friend Sabrina Hall and I decided to check out a few new spots in Akron. We started at the F. A. Seiberling Nature Realm. Then we went to the Akron Art Museum and to the stairwell in the parking garage across the street. I love how all of these turned out. I’m looking forward to shooting there again soon.
And since we had another photographer there we squeezed in a couple of shots of us together. I loves these.
I was so excited for this surprise proposal. Chase contacted me through another photographer friend and it turns out that he went to church with my sister. It was so cool how everything worked out. Chase currently lives in Texas and Rachel in Mentor, OH. He flew in for this surprise proposal using the excuse that he was here to sell a few things to finish the move. When we had discussed the perfect location for the proposal he suggested Gervasi’s. So we planned a perfect spot behind the villas in between two willows. And there I waited for 45 min while they finished up dinner at the Crush House, keeping the spot open. Several people inquired what I was doing and decided to stay and watch. So when Chase finally got there, there was an audience. But unfortunately he was so nervous he walked right past the spot and decided to spontaneously propose on the bridge. But it all worked out and I was able to get these beautiful candid photos. She was so happy! I teared up as well. It was such a special moment to be a part of. Later Chase introduced me to Rachel and we finished out the session with a few portraits.
I wish the very best for Chase and Rachel. May God continue to bless you as you start this journey.
This beautiful little family are Tiffanie and Noah. Tiffanie wanted spring flowers to be incorporated in the background, so we picked F. A Seiberling Nature Realm in Akron. I absolutely love shooting there. Every inch of it is gorgeous!
Noah is such a little ham. I think he giggled through his entire session. I love the value Tiffanie places on family photos. She has them taken in the fall and in the spring. Children grow up so quickly, it’s so important to remember them in each little stage. It was such pleasure working with these two again.
