Hazel June | Cincinnati Fresh 48 Photographer

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this sweet family. Lauren is an insanely talented photographer, she captured my own family photos last year AND she’s one of my studio mates. So, yeah, they’re a special family to me. Can you even look at sweet Hazel June without melting into a big puddle of mush? I sure can’t. She’s so stinking gorgeous.

While I was there to capture their sweet new family of four, big brother Everett came to meet his baby sister for the first time. As with most toddlers, he wasn’t immediately smitten with her like we were. But he came around… those kisses may have come with promises to go see his grandparent’s chickens.


Gwendolyn Faye | Cincinnati Fresh 48 Photographer

If you’ve followed along my photography journey for any amount of time you have probably seen this gorgeous couple plastered all over my web page. Well, they had a child and she’s absolutely perfect. Miss Gwendolyn Faye is so beautiful and so so so loved. ¬†Welcome to the FRamily, little lady.

Guys, this photo. It made me gasp. It made me tear up remembering nursing my own sweet babes for the first time.

Tyler + Baihley | Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

Tyler + Baihley’s wedding was my very last wedding of the year. It was also one of the hardest weddings to blog. Not for lack of beautiful shots, quite the opposite. I’ve tried SO SO SO hard to narrow this down but I can’t seem to take any more photos out because I love their love. So many times during their day they were surrounded by tons of people but I’m not sure they even knew. It was just the two of them all day long. In their own little “love bubble”.

A few things I should mention… Tyler is a photographer and scoped out the church’s dilapidated balcony for their first look. SERIOUSLY?? GORGEOUS! Also, the park we did photos at is in my neck of the woods, and I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity and the perfect couple to use it. NAILED IT!!
