Brandon and Erin met at the University of Cincinnati, so it was only fitting that we started their session on campus. They met through an organization called Cru, which is so near and dear to my heart! When sharing their story, it was so evident that the Lord intentionally placed them in their lives in […]

I’ve had the privilege of photographing this sweet family for the last few years, and it has been such a joy watching the kids grow up in front of my lens! Paisley, especially! She has the spunkiest personality – make sure you scroll through to the end to see her rocking the camera! We had […]

This week I celebrated my second year in business! I can’t believe that I am writing those words on the page… it seems like just yesterday that I bought a “fancy” camera  just for fun! When I bought that camera three years ago, I had no plans for a business. It’s funny how the Lord […]
