Brad + Robyn +Hayden + Colin + Caleb | Cincinnati Photographer French Park

Parent’s with boys know how photo sessions go. I mean, just last week we took our family photos and it started with bribery and threats. They just don’t get on board. However, I like to think I have tons of fun with my family session and, even when parents are worried about their kiddo cooperating we end up with beautiful, fun, and REAL family photos. The Alvis family was no exception. These three boys were spunky and so silly and we ended up with perfectly imperfect photos (and a few perfect ones too!).

Matt + Libby + Theo | Cincinnati Family Photographer | The Marmalade Lily

I would be totally offended if you tried to argue with me about the fact that these three are the most gorgeous family ever. I mean HOLY COW, they look like they belong in a GAP ad. Also, they happen to be so stinking sweet and genuinely fun to hang out with.

Libby and her parents run The Marmalade Lily, a GORGOEUS wedding + event venue just outside of Cincinnati. It also has tons of wildflowers and they host U-cut events! Needless to say I was completely stoked on the idea of shooting their family session there and it turned out perfect! (Shameless plug… if you are getting married at Marmalade Lily I totally want to photograph your wedding!)

Thank you for sending me home with some beautiful, fresh blooms. Libby, you’re the sweetest!

Archer Jordan | Cincinnati Birth Photographer

Madisen was literally such a CHAMP on Archer’s birth day. First of all, she was more than a week overdue. And THEN she pushed for 3 hours. Oh my goodness, she was tired but such a strong human. Meanwhile, can you just see the love and support pouring out of Matthew? These two were amazing! Thank you for trusting me to be a part of one of the best days of your lives.

Joseph + Sarah | Cincinnati Zoo Wedding Photographer

This. Wedding.

It was incredible! I was SO excited when Joseph + Sarah contacted me and told me they were getting married at The Cincinnati Zoo! WHAAAATTTT? The zoo staff was incredible! The planner, Mollie Luken was organized and every single person I came in contact with was kind and so helpful. Can we also just side note: the food was so beautiful and delicious! YUM! They also brought out animals during cocktail hour, how cool is that?

Now, lets talk about the bride and groom. Sarah made me laugh all day long (see the reception photo of her using Joseph’s arm as a guitar.. like that). And Joseph is a perfect match for her, he is calm and down to earth. This day was absolutely perfect and so much stinking fun. Congratulations, you two, thank you for letting me be a part of your beautiful day.

Jonathan + Kelly + Quinn + Emilia | Cincinnati Family Photographer Washington Park

Let’s just put this out there… a stormy day (hello lightning during our session!) + a teething 1 year old + a high energy, TONS OF FUN little guy does not always equal a great session. But let me tell you, I ADORE these images. They are real and they are full of interaction and energy. We succeeded in getting some great family photos and portraits of Emmy for her 1st birthday shoot and then she pretty much decided she was over it. So, we went with the flow! Whatever Emilia and Quinn wanted to do, I captured it. And I think Jon + Kelly will look back on these photos and remember them exactly as they were at this age, and THAT, my friends, is my ultimate goal. To take you back to this exact day; how it felt, how it sounded, and the love that surrounded you.


Someone please tell me if this isn’t the best meme-worth photo ever?
