The Carmany Family – Louisville, OH

This precious family are the Carmanys. They are dear friends of mine. I met Laura in a Mom’s group, which we still attend together, at our church four years ago. We instantly connected because my Liam and her Josiah were close to the same ages. Then, we both got pregnant again at the same time with Charlotte and Nate. Josiah just started Kindergarten as did Liam. It is so cute watching the kiddos grow up together. I count myself lucky to have such a sweet friend who is going through life at the same stage as I am.

Matt and Laura are also the proud owners of The Wholesome Hive. Matt is in charge of the beekeeping part of the business. And Laura has developed a line of high-quality, body and home care products. She has created these products from their honey, beeswax and other all natural ingredients. I love their products! Especially the lip balm. Check it out via the link above.

For the Carmanys session I wanted to use their love of honey making as a part of telling their family’s personal story. All the “props” used in the session are personal items from the family. I wanted to let their family’s personality shine. And by capturing the genuine love and affection they have for each other I think I have.

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.

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.

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!

Tiffanie and Noah – Family Photography – Cuyahoga Falls, OH

It was such a pleasure to work with this beautiful little family, Tiffanie and Noah. They are both so sweet! Noah, who was quite the little charmer, is turning five. It was such a fun session. I was excited about this new location at Cuyhoga Falls as well. It was perfect!

The Hart Family Mini Photo Session – Louisville, OH

This fun little spring session took place at the Metzger Park in Louisville, OH. Despite this park not being that photogenic, this cute little spot in the woods is gorgeous! And what better family to show it off! Rich and Janelle were celebrating little Hannah’s second birthday. So they decided to have a mini session to commemorate it. The Hart family is so cute and pretty special because big sister Heidi was one of my first newborn sessions. It is so fun to watch a family grow up in front of my camera.
