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.)

The O’Neill Family – Arrowhead Orchard – Louisville, OH Family Photographer

Meet the O’Neill Family. Ashley, James, Isabelle and Kaden. Ashley is also a professional photographer at Elm + Evermore. She and I decided to swap services this year. She took my beautiful session earlier this year. So I was excited to shoot her session. She decided to do a family and anniversary session together.

We picked Arrowhead Orchard in Paris, OH as the location. I love shooting there with all the greenery and rolling hills.

It is always a little intimidating working for someone who has the same profession. But James and Ashley were so relaxed. And they are naturals in front of the camera which made my job so easy.

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.

The Vogt Family – Louisville OH Family Photographer

It was so nice getting to work with this family. Not only because they were all so kind, but because they live just down the street from me! Since I live in Louisville I usually am traveling 30-60 minutes to take photographs. So this was a treat!

We were a little unsure of how the little ones would hold up in the cold. Even though we’ve had an usually mild winter so far, it just so happened to be 27 degrees, windy and snowing on Saturday. We had to take multiple breaks to warm up the little guys but it was well worth it. Part of the family lives out of state, so it was a special occasion for everyone to be together to get photographed.

The Perren Family – Quail Hollow State Park – Hartville OH Photographer

Check out this gorgeous family I had the privilege of photographing. It is always a challenge when the leaves fall to find scenic locations. But this little spot along a horse trail at Quail Hollow was beautiful. And the early morning sun was a perfect compliment.

The Elmerick Family – Louisville, OH

This is the Elmerick, Kandel, Kracker families. We were lucky to find a little bit of color left in November. This session took place in one of the daughters’ backyard. I love when I get to shoot at my client’s homes. It is so much more personal and easier on everyone. And we were also blessed with nice weather. Although 9 am is very early to get a family ready to go, the light is so beautiful that time of day. It was a pleasure working with this family with all of those sweet little girls.

Jabin’s Six Month Session – Alpine Park – Canton OH Family Photographer

 

Baby Jabin isn’t such a baby anymore! He is sitting up, smiling and is a very pleasant little guy. He is so quick to smile and he loves his Mommy and Daddy very much! You can’t tell, but it was raining through the entire session. Thankfully, it wasn’t raining too hard and Jabin didn’t even seem to notice!

The LaForest-Wheeler Family Photo Session – Akron, OH – F.A. Seiberling Nature Realm

These incredibly sweet people are the LaForest and Wheeler families. More than half of this family traveled from Michigan to make this family session. We met at the F.A. Seiberling Nature Realm in Akron, OH. This was my first time shooting at this location. It was gorgeous! There are gardens, hiking trails and a nature center. I would like to go back with my family and visit.

We met early in the morning and were afraid that we were going to get rained out.  But thankfully we got lucky! I was so impressed by all of these kiddos. Although they were typical energetic toddlers, they listened very well. Photographing five children age three and under together could prove to be challenging. But despite the fact that I got a good workout that morning, they were fantastic. It was such a pleasure getting to meet and work with this family!
