This classy, beautiful couple are Elizabeth Joseph and Mark Hilton. They will be tying the knot on September 24th, 2016. They are a very sweet and very active couple.
Mark is a Sales Engineer and frequently travels to Germany for his job. But when he is home he and Elizabeth are huge fitness buffs and love working out together. He also loves to cook. Fun Fact: They were friends for seven years before he proposed to her! Elizabeth has a background in fashion and runs the Mainstream Boutique in North Canton with her sister Rebecca Paliswat. It is a really cool boutique! Check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/MainstreamBoutiqueNorthCanton
They had many ideas for their unique engagement session. It was a bit of a challenge to fit it all in, but I love a good challenge! We started out at Cuyahoga Falls River Square. Then we headed to the Metro Gorge Falls. I love taking portraits in the Mary Campbell cave. Such beautiful quality of light and fantastic texture on the walls. Then we rushed home, picked up their sweet little dog Nellie and headed over to Sippo Lake Park. All the shots taken at Sippo were Elizabeth’s idea and it work out beautifully. She arrange for the bike rental from Ernie’s Bike shop. I love the vintage inspired design of the bikes. She also wanted to have some fun photos of them swinging on the playground. They were so cute and pulled off playful and romantic all at the same time. Then we drove over to the docks with Nellie and squeezed the last few photos of them with the sun setting over the lake. It was a perfect session with perfect weather and an even more perfect couple. Elizabeth and Mark are very sweet and I can’t wait to photograph their special day!

This brand new little lady is Lily. She is welcomed by adoring parents Lydia and Anthony. I have know Lily’s mommy for a very long time and this little girl is going to grow up with so much love and support. She is a very lucky lady to have parents like these two. Congrats to them and the whole family!
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!
This nice young man is David. He is a high school graduate and has recently enlisted in the United States Navy. He the youngest five children. I photographed two of his siblings’ senior photos as well. It is always a pleasure working with this family.
Congratulations on the engagement of this beautiful couple, Josh and Kayla! They fell in love in high school five year ago and now they are preparing to tie the knot. They are both so sweet and very perfect for each other!
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!
First thing in the morning after a big rain Liam and Daddy went worm hunting. Hence, this photo of Liam in his jammies, with a bedhead and his hands full of worms.
Liam’s first official year of egg coloring was a hit. We invited the family and had a fun afternoon together.
The weather changes that Ohio produces means endless fun for small children. Even though we live in town, Liam’s favorite place is outside. After the first thunderstorm of the year we went outside to splash in puddles.
Happy Easter from the Hughes Family!
Taking pictures of bubbles is a challenge. It’s hard to get the camera to focus on something that is transparent and is constantly moving. Especially on a windy day like it was.
Charlotte is being held by my youngest sister Michaiah. Aunt Michiaiah is so sweet to come and visit us. I love seeing her with my kiddos. I was twelve years old when she was born and she was always my special little buddy. And then when Liam was born she was twelve years old. So it is fun seeing the same age differences and remembering.
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.
This sweet family are our very special friends. We met when they won a photo session from me three years ago at a raffle. Since then they have been loyal clients and friends. Our sons are best buddies and have a shared mutual obsession for all things Thomas the Tank Engine.
This was my second time photographing this little guy. And he held the record for being one of the easiest kiddo’s I’ve ever worked with. Well, this second time was exactly the same except for the fact he was quite a bit more mobile. Callen is such a sweetheart and quite the handsome little man.
