Mac and Mia // Product

I love shopping for my son and finding unique clothes for him to wear that are cute, functional and affordable. But more often than not I end up at Carter, Target or Old Navy. They have cute stuff, don’t get me wrong, but they are also where most moms shop, so when I show up to the park any number of kids could be wearing the same outfit as my son. Cute yes, but not very unique. A few months ago I heard about a company called Mac and Mia, you simply go to the website and answer a few question about your preferred style, colors and size and they will send you a box of clothes. You have 5 days to try on all the clothes and you keep what you want and send what you don’t want back. I have never

Carly and Tim // Wedding

“Ice Ice baby, you’ve got a nice wife baby” - Rachel Moore (to the tone of Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice) Sometimes love is not the easiest of paths, sometimes it is more of a rock scramble. But once love finds us, it is so so good. Tim and Carly met over 10 years ago through some mutual friends but life didn’t bring them together right away. Life took them other places but life also has a way of bringing the people you need back into your life at just the right time. So 5 years ago, Tim and Carly reconnected and it was then that they began their own love story. Tim proposed to Carly at their house and then proceeded to celebrate the night at their favorite wine bar. And their wedding was was

Erin // Senior Pictures

“Last but not least, I would say you should have big dreams, full dreams, not half dreams. You know, it's very simple. You can't put a large box in a small box. Well, you cannot put a full life in a small dream box.” - Elias Zerhouni I say it all the time but I love working with families over time. Two years ago I worked with Tracy and her son Ian, and took his senior pictures downtown. Well this past weekend I met up with Tracy again but this time I was taking senior pictures of her daughter Erin. It was so great to talk to Tracy about how Ian was doing and all the exciting things still ahead with Erin as she enters her senior year. Erin has such a sweet spirit. She talked about wanting to

Angel and Ivory // Wedding

“Ain't a day go by, that I don't try To thank the Lord up above And if you wondering why, I'm loving life Come close and I'll tell you what's up Ask me how I'm doing, I'm blessed, yes Living every moment, no regrets” Charlie Wilson Angel and Ivory had a small intimate ceremony at the Dayton Steam Plant. Their ceremony was a beautiful celebration of a family coming together. Angel and Ivory celebrated not only their union, but their union with Angel’s daughter as well. So with Angel’s daughter and so many other loved family members standing next to them they promised to love and stand by each other forever. Following the ceremony, additional friends and family arrived for the reception. Angel

Maddi and Gage // Wedding

You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them. Desmond Tutu There is something so special about being invited into someone's family, into the intimate moments of someone's life and having the privilege of capturing those moments is something I love about photography. Not every wedding I photograph do I feel like I become part of the family, and that is okay; by no means do I ever expect to be invited into such intimacy; I am there to care for them on their special day, not the other way around. At this wedding though, Maddi and Gage along with their families invited me in. I have been excited for this wedding for a long time. Maddi’s mom, Christi, is one of my

Amanda and Andrew // Wedding

“To face the future with another, who means more than any other, is to be loved.” —The Rescuers Amanda and Andrew were the picture of a disney fairytale. It’s a tale as old as time, boy meets girl, boy falls for girl and then that girl means more to him than anyone in this whole world. Amanda and Andrew got married in a small church full of friends and family. Their vows rang with a promise, to never ever break a promise, to know what the most important thing is: even if they’re apart, they’ll always be with each other and an understanding that love is putting someone else’s needs before yours. Andrew finally got to kiss the girl and now they will be in each other's hearts, from this day on,

Teddy's First Birthday

This past weekend we celebrated Teddy’s first birthday! We celebrated with friends and family and were overwhelmed by the love poured out on us and Teddy. We could never have made it through this first year without our friends and family who endlessly helped, supported and listened to us. To think back to our first days with Teddy I have a hard time expressing just how difficult those days were (click here to read about Teddy’s birth story), but now that we get to look back and see how far he has come, I am blown away. This year, Jon and I were challenged in so many ways; being a new parent is unlike anything else in this world but we are so thankful for those who rallied with us in love, su
