Garrett & Amanda
After a private first look Amanda and Garrett had a small intimate ceremony at Pyramid Hill Sculptural Park with just their closest family, friends and their pup Charlie. They laughed the entire time they shared their vows.
After lots of hugs we went to explore the forest and take some gorgeous portraits. <3
So much love guys! You have to keep scrolling to see Charlie with their wedding rings on his nose because he is the bestest boy!
When Jessica emailed me excited to start their "adventure together of building a family" I knew they were my kinda people. They love spending their time outdoors and walking at Fernbank park, so we decided to schedule a few weeks after Griffin's arrival to shoot outdoors safely.
GREAT CHOICE. My absolute Favorite shot for our session may be when I swaddled him in the grass like a baby deer. Yes I totally said that. They went with it. WORTH. <3
I hadnt been to Fernbank for a session before, since I grew up East side and live in Fairfield the West Side is like a whole new world for me. I need to see all of the hidden gems guys. Lets go explore <3
Candace and Justin‘s wedding was in Cincinnati, ohio at The Hughes Center Barn. Their day was the definition of what a marriage is all about ; love, laughter and family. They already made a commitment to each other long before this day and they’ve got three amazing children that they have raised in love together ; Evie, Maggie and Mylo. I love how they incorporated them into their day. Justin even stopped the ceremony to love on his girls. Which may have made me tear up a bit <3
After their ceremony we got some family pictures of the girls truly being flower girls and frolicking in the field of "flowers" and making wishes.
After we got pictures of the whole fam bam I snuck these two away to have some beers, make out in the field and do the thing that all Lakota kids do - try to find someone that you know in common. Thankfully we had an idea of where to start because a few people sent her my way. Which is the BEST way to book clients, because I know if people I love love them, its going to be a good time. Especially since Justin is actually a photographer and videographer and talked shop with me the whole time. Thanks for putting up with our shutterspeed and lens review convos during our shoot Kandace.
So thankful that the storm held off and left us with these dramatic skies <3
If someone says that they are wanting me to come shoot at their "little yellow Victorian" I pretty much know that I am going to love that person. So I was zero percent surprised to love the McNelis' family, but they are pretty darn awesome. Especially the youngest Mr. Micheal Owen. He is was sweet and snoozy for our Friday morning session. He was the snooziest baby and definitely wrinkled his forehead and gave me the "let me sleep, lady" look. Complete with little pursed lips that gave off his old soul vibe. He also liked to keeps his hands swaddle free to cup them under his chin, Which Kera said he also did in-utero. Its so cool to hear how their little personalities and habits are already so formed by the time they make their way to us <3
This sweet family of four - 2 parents and 2 pups welcomed little Lawson to the tribe. He was the most content little guy I have ever seen. After our session we came down and included the proud grandparents into the session too. One loved little dude.
Little itty baby details below. Be sure to keep scrolling for fingers and toes.
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!
