Nate and Kate | Cincinnati Family Photographers

Emily Dickinson once said “My friends are my estate”, in that case, Kate has been one of my valued treasured assets since 8th grade.  I remember it like it was yesterday: I walked into Mrs. Clifton’s algebra class at Milford Junior High, sat down, turned around to borrow a pencil and there sat Kate.  Kate smiled exposing her bright shiny braces right as I grinned exposing my mouth covered in metal.  And there it began, the blossoming of a beautiful friendship that has stood the test of time.   I was sooo honored and flattered when Kate sent me a text message and said “we want to book you for a real paid session….and we won’t have it any other way”.  Even more of an honor, Kate and her husband have started their own photography business and you can check them out at Nate and Kate Photography.

Their girls are the sweetest and the most well behaved little peanuts…this is of course attributed to Kate and Nate.  Kate is the best mom and I take mental notes at everything she does….I hope to be half the mom she is one day.

Enjoy these images of their sweet family!

Caitlin & Nate | Cincinnati Wedding Photographers

To say these 2 are in-love would be the understatement of the year.  They were such a joy to work with-  so calm and laid back but joyful and beyond excitement to officially be Mr. & Mrs. Smith.  Caitlin and Nate were so full of energy and they were up for anything, including hiking up a hill to get some of these shots.   Their families and friends were such a pleasure to be around all night…I found myself laughing and crying right along with them.  What a special day and fun night topped off with the Cincinnati Bearcat coming to bust a move on the dance floor.  I just loved working with this couple and I can only hope I get to work with this group again….they were a blast and their energy is contagious!

The Denu Family | Cincinnati Family Photographers

This sweet family couldn’t have been any more picture perfect.  I absolutely LOVED the outfits Kelly came up with…they perfectly match their personality.  Bright, cheery and a rays of sunshine.  Paul lived in Mariemont during their dating years and they spent many of years in this neighborhood….so what a perfect place to come to for their family session.

Enjoy these images of this sweet little family on a sunny summer day in Cincinnati….

Ashley and Kyle | Lexington Engagement Photographers

Some people have the gift of expressing their personality through emails.  Ashley is one of those people.  She was so bubbly, sweet, and gracious in her emails and I knew they would be a delight to work with.  They didn’t disappoint!  They were so adorable together and a joy to photograph.  We met at Gratz Park in Lexington Kentucky, which is one of my favorite places in Lexington to shoot.  In fact, my wedding pictures were taken at Gratz Park!

I am so looking forward to their wedding this August!!!

Ashley | Maternity Photographers

Ashley is my Florida soul sister.  Our husbands are in med school together and we met 2 years ago.  We both agree that we don’t know what we would have done without the other to get through these 2 years of being the wife of a med student.  We realize how fortunate we are but there are also big challenges and huge stresses being away from home and becoming a ‘med school widow’.  Having a person who understands exactly what you are going thru, is/was invaluable.  I get teary when I think of us not living in the same city…I know without a doubt that even though thousands of miles may separate us in life, we will be lifetime friends and always make an effort to maintain our friendship.

Ash is absolutely gorgeous and glowing at this stage in her pregnancy and we had so much fun taking her maternity pictures at Vizcaya in Miami. I feel honored that she chose me to capture such a beautiful time in her life.  I texted her last night and said I was getting so sappy thinking about Liam having one of these pictures framed in his home when he is older.  I picture him looking at this framed photo and seeing how gorgeous and young his mom looks.  I imagine he will feel that connection that his mom felt for him during her pregnancy and how he will always be able to say “that’s me and my mom”.

Our friend Jess (also a wife of a 3rd year med student), whom we met last year and became equally close to, came for the fun with her little bambino Mason. I’m so grateful for these two girls!  I truly never thought I could have such an incredible friendship with 2 girls I’ve only known 1-2 years.
