Look who’s back from Florida!! And while they were here, we snuck in a full family session. Josh’s parents live on the most BEAUTIFUL property in Hilliard. I photographed Josh, Kate and Levi here when he was itty bitty (2012!). It was great to be back and see the whole family! Enjoy my faves!

This family is so much fun! I adore all of you! 

Thank you for the best evening and time while you guys were home! I loved seeing you and all of your family. xoxoxo

I’m in-LOVE with this family!! I remember photographing big sister Zoe when she was an itty bitty newborn. And to see their family grow with the addition of Abby just warms my heart. These troopers met me at Highbanks Metro Park for a sunrise session. YES! That means we met up at 6:45am. And these guys brought the smiles! Enjoy my faves!

That one on the left? Eeeeek! Those girls LOVE their daddy!

I’m obsessed with this one!!


Abby. You just melt me. Fave!

Thank you SO MUCH for trusting me with this sunrise session. I know it was not easy, but you guys made it look like a breeze! I adore all of you. Your family is precious! xoxoxo
