You know when you meet someone, even over social media, and you instantly know you could be best friends with them? That’s how I felt when Brianna first messaged me about photographing her wedding next June. When we met them in downtown Pittsburgh for their engagement session, I just KNEW we would be the perfect fit for them and their wedding! They are a joyful and genuine couple who love the Lord and each other so deeply. They were SUCH a dream to photograph!Read More
I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet family last week. Jan Yabs contacted me this summer about updating their family photos, since it had been QUITE a while since they had family photos taken! I was happy to help!Read More
About two weeks ago I got one of the best phone calls ever. I know that’s a pretty big statement but this was some pretty big news. I got a call from Will, who was dating one of my closest, dearest and most treasured friends that I’ve known for a decade. Allie and I met during the summer before our freshman year. So we have literally known each other for 10 amazing years. Allie is one of those people that will change you and inspire you after just one conversation. She is a truly beautiful soul and I am telling you, one of the most genuine and loyal friends I have ever met. She will laugh with you, cry with you, just be with you. And when she began dating Will, I just KNEW that she had found her future husband. I literally have never seen Allie happier than when she is with Will. He is so perfect for her and I am very pleased that he is a fellow HUGE Disney fan! Do I anticipate Schaefer and Davis family trips to Disney World…yes I do!Read More
It’s always nice to see old, familiar faces. I went to college with Brianna and Joey and I hadn’t seen them since graduation! So I was super pumped when Bri contacted me about doing some family photos for them! She wanted to make sure we took them before Joey is deployed so she could send him with printed pictures of his family. I’m just floored by the sacrifice that military families make for our country! I am so thankful for their service and incredible sacrifice for our country and our freedom.Read More

I met Caitlin at a mom’s night about a year ago. She’s got a magnetic personality and I loved getting to know her. So I was really excited when she messaged me about doing a family session with her husband’s family. She suggested we do the session at Friendship Park near Smithfield, Ohio. I had never been there before but I’m always looking for new and different locations for sessions.
GUYS. This may be my new favorite photo location!Read More
I was so excited when I got a message from Scott, asking if I would take their family photos. I worked at Franciscan University with him before I had John. When I met with Scott and Jill to talk about what they were looking for in family photos, they pointed to the portrait on the family room wall. “This is the last time we had family photos taken” they said. “It’s missing our two youngest kids!” Those kids weren’t even born yet…that’s how long it had been since they had professional photos taken of the family.Read More
