I just have to share this darling portrait of a friend’s baby that I shot on Sunday afternoon, using natural light from the window behind her. If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been getting more creative with borders and textures lately- so fun! Oh and I bought this fun little flower hat on ebay!

Fun times creating senior pix for Luke D. from Southern High School in Racine, OH on Saturday. Such a nice young man and so easy to photograph!

Meet Brandon O, another South Parkersburg High Senior! Brandon is a quiet and stylish fellow. He’s also a soccer player! I heart soccer players :) I had a super time creating his Senior Pix last week! We did some shots with his dog, his sister, and his girlfriend!

Ah, Miss Lindsay Foutty, a Senior at South Parkersburg High School. Such an awesome young women! I first met Lindsay earlier this year while getting my hair done at Simply Irresistable in Parkersburg. The second time we met I was taking portraits of her and her siblings. I love her her entire family! The Fouttys are amazing people with amazing stories to tell. It was a pleasure working with Lindsay on her Senior Portraits and great to see her Mom Laura too, who has become a good friend!

Lindsay has her own tv show, sings, loves Missions work, old movies, the Red Sox, and people in general…

Meet Molly Ritchie, a Senior at Ravenswood High School. She’s one of the coolest young ladies that I know! Molly and I met at a bible study and then she inqired about me doing her Senior pics, so I decided to make her my Ravenswood High Senior Rep! Yep, that’s right, if you have any questions about getting your senior pix done with me, just grab Molly in the hall and ask her!

Molly and I actually had 2 sessions to complete her awesome collection of stellar senior proofs and it was sooo much fun! We went everywhere & did some really unique shots! Check them out under the Proofs tab on my website, no password required!

A few favorites…


If u want a pair of these super cool Converse Chucks, too bad, Molly tie-dyed them herself! (so creative, such an individual! I love it.)

Back in June I made a trip to Pittsburg & Wheeling for a fashion photo shoot for my pals at In Wheeling Magazine, based in Wheeling, WV.(http://www.inwheelingmagazine.com/)

Half of our session took place inside Anne Gregory Bridal in Pittsburgh, and half at the offices of InWheeling Magazine in downtown Wheeling. Some of the images are for the Fall Issue Jewelry spread, and others for the upcoming winter issue (one of which will be on their cover)!

I am glad to finally be able to share these images now that the Fall Issue has hit the stands…

I am telling you folks, I have had the honor of photographing some AMAZING weddings this summer! I am so grateful.

What a fabulous afternoon last Saturday (August 30) for the Wedding of Miss Laraine Lawson and Mr. Brian Kemery! CONGRATS MR. & MRS. KEMERY! Their Wedding ceremony was held at the magnificant Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Pomeroy, Ohio and a reception followed at the Ohio University Baker Center in Athens!

So I had an awesome Senior session this evening with a super cute young man from Ravenswood High School, Mr. Nathan Rees! Another talented individual, Nathan enjoys running, biking, fishing, and photography! During our session we realized that we have in something in common: we both wear our watches on our right wrist. We concluded that it must be a wierd photographer thing. :)

He should be a model!

So…
