Jackson, Mama & Daddy {Mini Session}

This super sweet family is always a joy to photograph. They have great senses of humor, fabulous fashion sense and super fun to hang out with. They had made plans to move from West Virginia to Texas and wanted a family portrait session to commemorate their time in the Mid-Ohio Valley. We had a super fun mini session  in historical  Harmar Village, Marietta, Ohio. We  got several great shots in about 20 minutes. I love the outfits Mama picked out – lot’s of patterns and not too matchy – matchy.

Mini sessions are great way to commemorate special occasions, slip in a quick family portrait or accommodate the attention span of a two year old! Is a mini session the right choice for you? Would you like us to help you choose the right portrait session for your family? Then contact us today!

Fall Farm Session {Barnett Boys}

I have known the Barnett’s since little Cooper was just a couple weeks old. He was so tiny and adorable! Little did I know that this was the beginning of a wonderful friendship. Cooper was joined by Case a couple years later and our annual fall portrait session became a part of my autumn tradition! I look forward to the end of October when I can count on spending a few hours with Mama, Cooper, Case and whatever myriad of animals happen to be on the farm.

Farm sessions are my favorite. The love affair began with this family. They have driven me on a tractor, taken me on a gator, hiked me down the hill, up the creek and all over their beautiful home. They know that whatever they come up with, I am game! I have played in the snow with them, stomped through a creek with them,  mourned the loss of a beloved pet with them and fell in love with them. Totally.

Here is a peek at their most recent session.

Ashton and Alex {Blennerhassett Hotel Wedding}

Simple, classic and delightful. That is the best way to describe the lovely Blennerhassett Hotel wedding of Alex and Ashton. Ashton was a gorgeous bride and the sound of laughter followed her everywhere she went. (This may have something to do with her step sisters following her around doing their comedy routine!)

It was an honor to be part of celebrating the joining of two families and such a sweet love.

Farm Newborn {Violet}

Lovely little Violet. Maybe you remember the maternity session where Violet’s family was patiently awaiting her arrival. Violet was welcomed in a wonderful home birth. One moment they were a family of three, the next moment they were four.  What a lucky little girl to be born into such an amazing family. Her big sister Raven seems smitten with her. Her dad spent much of the session encouraging me to embark on my own journey to parenthood. (Yeah, I totally love him.) Mama just looked kind of blissed out and totally in love with little Violet. (She was probably delirious from lack of sleep!)

I love this family, this farm, this Violet.

The Wildest Thing of All {Kiefer}

The best thing I got from my ex husband is Tammy. And I am the best thing she got from hers. The best thing she has ever done is Kiefer.  I was there when he slipped into this world. And I love him.

Kiefer is funny, sweet, active and animated. But he is not much of a hiker. I wanted to try out some new props inspired by Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak and photograph in the fall colors so I enlisted Kiefer. We hiked down below is grandparents house out in Whipple to a creek bed that Tammy and her brother haunted as kids. It was gorgeous and perfect. I and I love the images. Especially the one Kiefer took of Tammy and I.

Would you like to book a Wild Things Session? It’s the perfect portrait session for kiddos ages 4ish-10ish. Boys and girls alike will love donning a and cape and roaring around the forest and fauna. Book your Wild Thing Session today for a photo adventure you and your favorite kiddo will enjoy remembering for years to come! Better yet, book a best friends session with your bestie. You won’t regret it.

Summertime Mama {Maternity Session}

Danielle is a passionate Mama. She is owner of Esali Birth and is a vocal advocate for  birth education. If you are expecting, both her facebook feed and website are invaluable sources of information for mamas to be and new mamas.

I took Danielle to SuBAMUH in Athens county. SuBAMUH  is a beautiful women only space that I utilize for just the right customer. Danielle was just that person.  It was a very hot day, but as the sun began to drop, the light became amazing and made it all worth it.  I had been wanting to work with a maternity client floating in a pond or some other body of water for quite some time and Danielle was totally game, I think the hot weather helped quite a bit! Danielle was amazing to work with and as you can see absolutely stunning.

Danielle chose a keepsake album as her product. She wanted an intimate momento of her maternity images and an album was the perfect product for her. Are you interested in a maternity session? We will custom design your session just for you. Maternity portrait sessions generally take place late in the 7 month or early in the 8th month. Contact us today to schedule your complimentary consultation

Flower Child {Tatum Class of 2013}

She is silly, and happy and full of life. She loves to have fun, jump around, laugh and be silly. Tatum is a girl that knows how to live life to the fullest, and, she is adorable. She is also a girl after my own heart, her Senior trip was a trip to Bonnaroo Music Festival – a festival that has been on my music bucket list for quite some time!

Tatum chose one of our Walkabout sessions, we spent some time in downtown Parkersburg, then headed up to Fort Boreman as the sun started to drop. When Tatum placed her order, she went with one of our Signature products, a storyboard designed just for her. We filled with several of her favorite images and customized the colors to compliment the portraits.

We had a great time and I love how soft some of the images in the field look.

Hi Five {Kegan}

My love affair with the Nutters began with this fella, Kegan. I met them when his mama was pregnant for him. I have been photographing he and his family for five years now. These people are my family.  They are the kind of people that will show up to help you move something heavy or drop everything to help a Hot Tomato in distress. They are the kind of people I want in my life. I look forward to Kegan’s birthday every year because it gives me a moment to pause and celebrate that the Nutters are in my life and part of my tribe. Happy Birthday Kegan and happy anniversary Jonny, Ashlie, Ayden, Garrett and Kegan. I love you more than ya’ll might ever know.

The love affair continued when he was born. I started to get to know this amazing family as I photographed tiny Kegan and watched as he was cuddled, loved, nursed and cared for by his family. Before long, his mama began working as my assistant and the process of the Nutters becoming part of my family began.

Old Barn Senior Portraits {Joab Class of 2013}

I do play favorites. It’s true. One of my favorite shooting spaces happens to be old barns. I love the way they smell,like hay and earth mixed with old wood.  I love the way the sunshine streams in through the cracks and bathes everything in warm golden light.  The texture of the wood and the architecture of the old beams beckon to me as well. I love the lines and negative space the beams create. Most of all,  I love what an old barn symbolizes to me – heritage, family, history, connection to a place, connection to land. Many of the barns I photograph in have been in the family for generations.

Joab and I talked at his portrait planning session for awhile before he mentioned the old barn with the old truck. Immediately the tone of our meeting changes, we all started getting excited.  Joab because we had finally hit upon and idea that felt authentic to him, something that represented him. I got excited because I could already see, in my minds eye,  how amazing these photos were going to turn out.His mom got excited because she loved this barn. She grew up spending time in this barn, and now it was going to be preserved in Joab senior portraits.  Can you imagine what it will be  like to look back at these photos, 50, 70, 100 years from now?

So we photographed Joab’s senior portrait session in the barn that has been in his family for at least a couple generations, and it was amazing.

Love Is Love Is Love

Izzle and Crys have stolen my heart.

I met them when Crys was a performer  at a music festival I photograph every summer. If you are a music lover, you should check out the song Crys wrote for Izzle.  Honestly, I suspect most of the songs Crys writes are about her love and admiration for Izzle in one way or another.

Being around Izzle and Crys is a serious mush fest, they are so in love, and so in awe of each other that you cannot help but watch these beautiful women and think yeah, I want a love like thatd. I am in awe of them and honored to be a part of their amazing celebration.

These images are from their engagement session in Thomas, West Virginia. It was an amazing day. Crys had a gig at the Purple Fiddle, so I came early, watched her set, helped Izzle put the final touches on her outfit and then the fun began!

I cannot wait for September 14th when this beautiful couple declares their love in front of everyone that is important to them, and we come together as a community to celebrate them! Check the portraits out, and I dare you not to fall in love with them.
