Seriously. I may have taken nursery pictures as inspo because I loveeee it. Sharing in case you love too!
Alonna Donovan Makinson started her own private practice called Life Tree Counseling and asked me to take pictures of her new space, her therapy pups and of course her on location in Springfield, Ohio
I know that spring is supposed to be the time of new beginnings. For me, fall brings the beginning of school, my busiest photography season and for a lot of my friends fresh starts in their own business too. I loved checking out her space for individual counseling, super cozy. We also went a skip and a hop over to a courtyard where we sat and caught up on the benches. Which was perfect because it was a perfect day and I always enjoy chatting more outdoors.
I have known Alonna as a friend and as a clinician for years and definitely would recommend her. She specializes in Sex-positive therapy, Wellness counseling, Relationship issues, Couples counseling,LGBTQ, CNM/Poly and Animal assisted therapy at her practice Life Tree Counseling in Springdale, ohio.
I met these three families at Ault Park for a cousins family session. Is anything better than cousins!? A close contender would maybe be a grandmas love... and her food. Which is fitting since these cousin pictures are a gift for their grandma. Also, my family please note, this is the gift I want always. Willing participants in family pictures <3
These four came together with their parents, 2 sisters and a brother, to cheese it up for a session for their grandmas birthday. Since we were already together, I figured we can do our own little mini minis to get a few pictures of each family too. (:
I have known Jacquelin both as a friend and professionally for years at Compass Point. I worked directly with her to serve her clients. So when she told me that she was starting her own private practice I was so excited. I know she is an awesome and real person. Good inside and out. :D
We met up in her gorgeous new office for a branding session. But seriously check out her space - It could not be more therapeutic for a Kristin, there is a greenhouse.
Jacquelin specializes in Couple Counseling, Marriage Counseling, Depression, Anxiety, Therapy, LGBTQ, Therapist, Emotionally Focused Therapy and EFT. Learn more on her website. :D
I visited Maria, Dalton and sweet little Oliver in their home In Hamilton to capture them in Oliver's nerd-sery. The first two years are the most important, you really have to ingrain and indoctrinate your kids into your fandom early.
What better way to spend a gorgeous summer night in Dayton that capturing these two cuties connection. We met at the Ohio Challenge Balloon Festival when Geoffrey dropped to one knee and surprised everyone with a ring!

I was especially excited to capture the Dirr Family because Brigid is my hair magician and I have been listening to stories about her kids for years. Also heard about for at least a year... an empty wall that she didnt know what to do with.
Check out the gallery wall Brigid <3 Show me pics of the real one!
I cannot believe that these two boys have grown up before my lens from teeny tiny newborns to grown toddler twins running through the creek and jumping off of rocks. Cole and Tate are truly growing into their own personalities and it was fun to capture the different ways they explored their new stomping grounds. <3
When my camera is charging you can find me playing with my little family or trying yummy new foods around the city.
I promise to tell horrible jokes and will probably be more awkward than you, but by the end of the day we will all be laughing. Which is how I get the real natural smiles that you see in my portfolio!
