i love surprises.  so, when someone approaches me with a photographic surprise idea, i jump.  i shot stephanie’s senior photos and was delighted to see her again; this time with her mom.  what a cute pair!  you can tell they have a close bond.  they also had a great idea for dad/mr. m’s birthday.  they opted for a mini session and then gave dad beautiful portraits for his office and a few to decorate the home.

no matter how old…always mommy’s little girl.  i hope sarah feels this way when she’s grown up!


it was so much fun capturing who you two are together and apart. two peas in a pod!

I love Big Shots Photography and working with Marla because:  she was great to work with and my session was very easygoing!

i was so lucky when tricia was “given” to me.  not exactly given, i guess.  i had a model prospect who didn’t feel she’d have the time to dedicate to the program and so she gave me tricia’s name.  i didn’t know anything about tricia at the time but now i do!  i don’t even know how to begin writing this blog post for tricia’s second session that she earned being a big shots model!  her first session had a more urban feel so we mixed things up by giving her a low key, natural session this time.

i’ve gotten to know tricia fairly well over these last few months with many phone calls and, of course, her sessions.  tricia is girl extraoridinaire.  beyond her “outer gorgeousness” is a beautiful, driven, giving soul.  i admire the way she is an active participant in so many activities.  among many other things, she will be co-chairing the “fashion for the cure” event at sycamore this coming year, is very involved in unified for unifat, and is such a hard worker in many realms including being a model for big shots.  i’m blown away by her dedication and determination.

i know you’re going places, dear tricia.  i can’t wait to see where life takes you…or more like it, where you take life!

here are some of my many favorite images from our session together.  it was a pleasure to capture who you are again.

one of the fun sides of my many “fun sided job” is getting to work with so many different people and organizations throughout cincinnati.  i am proud to be involved with the baby guide and recently had the pleasure of photographing elise for the baby guide magazine.  they held a beautiful baby contest and she won for the three-four year old category.  how could she not?  look at those eyes and her little piggy tails!  her mom, courtney, and i set up her shoot in a place that courtney thought would be fun and different from sessions she’d had before.  elise was photographed first in an adorable pink dress from the spotted goose boutique and then sported her own outfit.  what a dollface!  she’s featured in this year’s magazine so if you have a copy, look her up.  i have copies if you want one.  there are great resources/coupons/articles/ads for everything from pregnancy to playgroups, schools and more.  oh, and of course, photographers!
