My third and final family shoot on Sunday March 22nd at Ogleby Park in Wheeling was the Lewton Family. What a delight! I am in love with their son Jack- such a cute face!
Too many favorites, my goodness!

Meet Joan & Larry Piko. I first met them last summer when I photographed their daughter Laura’s Wedding. They are such sweet people. Since then I have also photographed their daughter Julie’s family and now I’ve had the honor of creating these “casual” portraits of the two of them to mark their 40th Wedding Anniversary. I think it is the sweetest thing to see a couple so in love after so many years! Kinda makes you get teary-eyed.

Congrats Joan & Larry, here’s to many more years to come!

These were also shot on Sunday March 22 at Ogleby Park in Wheeling, WV.

Great session with the beautiful 3 year old Joscelyn on Saturday March 28th! The overcast skies made for some beautiful outdoor lighting conditions and her Mom Jenn is wonderful and is always up for my ideas and locations. We stumbled upon a field of purple flowers and it was beautiful! Fun stuff!

A family session on Sunday March 22, 2009 at Ogleby Park in Wheeling, WV. They were such a great family to work with. Too many great proofs to show them all here. You can view their proofs by entering the Client Login tab of my website.

Today I visited Mrs. Anderson’s photography class at Ravenswood High School. Fun times!

I shot Kelsey’s Senior portraits on Saturday evening. Could not have asked for a more gorgeous day and she was up for all my ideas. The creativity was flowing and I had a chance to do some new stuff and try out a few new locations I found.

I had way too many favorites from this one!…

Tashina came in on Saturday for a studio session to mark her upcoming graduation from The University of Charleston. She’s majoring in Interior Design, how cool! I will be doing another shoot with her next month on the U.C. campus!
