Liam the Lumberjack – Louisville, OH Family Photographer

This adorable little lumber jack is my precious four-year-old son Liam. Every year on my children’s half birthdays I like to have a stylized session with them.

It is so nice when your children get a little older when it comes to photographing them. I remember last year when we had a tepee session he only game me ten minutes before he was done. This year he was all into it. He was even suggesting some of his own poses and gave me the cutest smiles!

After photographing clients during the week it is a challenge for me to feel motivated to photograph my own children. But I am always so thankful after I do. Especially when they are cute as this! (Sorry, I know I’m biased.)

Isaac – Minerva, OH Family Photographer

Meet Isaac. This handsome young man is my brother. He is the youngest of five sisters. He will be turning 14 in a couple of months. Isaac likes Minecraft, building forts in the woods for his air soft gun wars and he recently purchased his first cross bow. He is also on the football team at his school in Carrollton. He is one of my favorite people. He is very sweet, thoughtful and so much fun to hang out with. He is also an awesome uncle and role model for my son Liam.

Tiffanie and Noah’s Family Session – F. A. Seiberling Nature Realm- Akron OH Family Photographer

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.

Elijah’s Wild One 1st Birthday Session and Cake Smash – Louisville OH Photographer

I’ve photographed Elijah several times over his first year so it was such a privilege to photograph his 1st birthday as well. Elijah’s session is the cutest I’ve ever photographed to date. His mother Debbie handmade each of these items pictured. I couldn’t believe what a wonderful job she did making and planning everything.  The cake was make by my favorite baker Diane Blandford of Sweet Tooth Treats here in Louisville.

Elijah gave us quite a show during his cake smash (or should I say not cake smash). He refused to taste his cake. Debbie had to put puffs into the cake just so we could get one picture of him eating a little icing. He didn’t even want to get his little hands dirty either. The session ended in tears but it was very entertaining for us adults. Hopefully this was good practice for him so he will actually eat his first birthday cake at his party. 😉

Happy Birthday big boy!

Leo’s First Birthday Cake Smash Session – Louisville OH Child Photographer

Check out this stylish little guy’s first birthday session. We started out with a few photos with his big sister Gia. Then we took a few of Leo in his adorable bow tie and moccasins. Then it was time for the Cake Smash! At first he was only interested in tasting the icing. Then finally at the end he was all into it.  The whole family came to watch this event. It was so much fun to watch and photograph. Happy Birthday Leo!

Lily’s Mini Easter Session – Louisville, OH

This little lady is Lily. She is almost three years old now! We took her 2nd birthday pictures last year. She was a little timid and unsure of the camera then. But this year she was so brave and did such a good job. It is so much fun watching little ones grow up in front of my camera. As a little side note, she has the sweetest parents anyone could ask for. Lily is a very lucky little girl.
