Ryan + Beth | Jamaica Wedding Photographer

Ryan + Beth renewed their vows in Jamaica and celebrated 10 years of marriage. Couples Resorts was so great to work with and did a beautiful job setting up the ceremony and a little reception for the 4 of us. Ryan + Beth asked us to stand next to the during the ceremony so all of these shots were right after. As I said last week, I didn’t expect to cry but I totally teared up (and Ryan called me out on it) during their vows. They’ve faced quite a few difficulties in the last 10 years and it has been such and encouragement to me to see them walk through it all with grace and trust in God. I love you both so much!


Aaron + Amanda + Rowan | Cincinnati Family Photographer

One of the really cool job perks of being a family photographer is watching babies grow into toddlers and, eventually, into big kids. It’s such a privilege when families come back to me and trust me again and again with capturing these milestones. I can’t believe it has already been a year since Rowan’s newborn session, time just keeps speeding up on me.

Hugo + Michelle + Baby Girl | Cincinnati Maternity Photographer

Sometimes when I meet people I’m like, “Ohmygosh, will you be my best friend?” No, joke these two (three!) humans are so funny and genuine I just want to hang out with them. Their kid is going to be extra cool and extra loved. We laugh SO much during our session and just had a blast getting to know each other. Here’s to hoping I’m in town when she has this sweet baby girl so I can come photograph her adorable little face at the hospital.

Side note: HOLY COW Michelle is gorgeous and all belly at 8 months prego.

Aubrey + Jaxson | Cincinnati Family Photography

I love these babies so much. I’ve said it a hundred times but HOLY PHOTOGENIC! These two have the prettiest eyeballs and Aubrey has been working the camera since she was a wee babe. Seriously, they need to stop growing up, it’s insane.

Oliver’s Last Chemo | Cincinnati Family Photographer

In November of last year Oliver was diagnosed with a rare form of pediatric cancer called Neuroblastoma. Many would call this every parent’s nightmare. I watched as Richie and Suzi dealt through a whole range of emotions and settled on determination. They were determined not to let this break them. Determined to fight with their son. Determined to stand up and be a voice for childhood cancer. Most of all, determined that, NO MATTER WHAT, God would be glorified through their son and through their journey. They have been an incredible testament of faith and hope to me. There is no where I would have rather been last Saturday than at Children’s documenting Oliver’s last round of chemo.

This boy. He’s so sweet and friendly to everyone he meets. As you can tell, chemo doesn’t keep him down for long. We ran the hallways and laughed a lot at this silly guy. If you want to follow along his journey head over to their Facebook page and give them a follow.

Bradley + Joanna | Cincinnati Wedding Photography

I feel like I said all the sentimental aunt-things in their engagement blog post. But maybe I can squeeze in just a few more.

Bradley, I’m so incredibly proud of the man you have become. I don’t get to take much credit for it but I like to think those toddler years spent watching Barney with me helped, and maybe the teenage years you spent in our youth group. But, lets be honest, most of the maturing and growing up you’ve done was by God’s grace and because of your compassion and love for others.

Joanna, I know I already sent you this text but the photo of your sister hugging you makes me weep. She + I sat and had many discussions and prayed for you so many times. I’m just so incredibly grateful for where you are now and how far you’ve come. I love you both so much and I’m so happy I got to be a part of your big day.

Jesse + Jazmine + Jace | Cincinnati Family Photographer

There are people in your life that you quickly realize are “your people” when you meet them. These are my people. Compared to the 33 years of my life, I haven’t even known them at long. (3 years) But it seems like forever. I loved the two of them so much already but THEN they brought this sweet little guy into the world and their family just grew more precious to me. I am so hyped to shoot a BUNCH of weddings with Jaz this year and to go exploring Havasu Falls with them next year!! IT’S GONNA BE SO FUNNNNN!! Love you bunches, fam.

Ps. How did she just have a baby 6 months ago?? Holy smoking hot friend!
