The Office: Season Premier

If you didn't watch the season premier of The Office tonight, I HIGHLY recommend you buy it on itunes the minute it's available! I won't say anything about it, just in case you didn't see it yet.... but....
"Is everything ok?"
"Yes. But you left your TV on, and your cat is dead."

Chad & Jen: Wedding

Last weekend, (my)Chad and I headed out to Wheeling, WV to shoot Jen and Chad's beautiful wedding. The whole affair took place at the Oglebay Resort. It was a gorgeous location! Jen and Chad had all of the details planned out so wonderfully. And their family and friends were such a great group of people. The ceremony was held in one of Oglebay's beautiful gardens. I love the wide shots (my)Chad captured during the ceremony. Gorgeous!
Chad's two best men gave THE most entertaining toast we've ever seen! They put together a 'survival kit' for Jen :)
I really can't say enough good things about their wedding!

Olivia: Senior Session

I have been shooting like a crazy person lately. I can't believe how fast we're growing as a business. It's soo exciting!! :)
Yesterday, I had a shoot with Olivia. She and her mom were great to work with. Olivia had a great wardrobe with a lot of variety. She also had awesome, intense blue eyes! I had a lot of fun and I love what we captured during her session! Enjoy:

Michaelle & Scott: E-Session

Wow!! I had an awesome session today! Michaelle and Scott were so great to work with and I'm really looking forward to their wedding. Scott's dad is a photographer so he's very used to being in front of the camera. And I wouldn't have been able to take a bad picture of Michaelle if I tried. They are a gorgeous couple and I loved seeing them interact with each other. We shot at Squire's Castle in the Cleveland Metro Parks.
I love these photos and I can't wait to see what kind of images we get at the wedding! Enjoy:

The Kappel's & The Bossart's: Family Session

I had such an incredible session today! Both of these families are so great to work with and I'm so glad we chose today to shoot. It was perfect! We shot their sessions together because Chris and Michelle are sisters, and this way we were able to get some shots of all of the cousins together.
Are they all gorgeous or what?!
The first family is the Kappel's, here are some from their shoot:

Look at that pose! So adorable :)

Pete: Senior Session

I had an awesome shoot the other day! Pete, his mom Karol, and his sister Shelby were so much fun to hang out with. They all put their complete trust in me to get really fun and creative images. But they all had great input and ideas, too. Hopefully I'll be shooting Shelby's senior photos in a couple years! Enjoy:

(You might recognize this bridge from a previous session.. I try not to reuse locations, but there is a reason I went back there: Pete is a runner, and he and his team run that bridge... and I really love the way that bridge looks :) )

The Wengerds: Family Session

Yesterday was a perfect day for a shoot! I'm so glad I got together with the Wengerd family. The last time we shot together was during the wintertime, so we were limited to shooting indoors.
I had fun yesterday- Jake and Tommy kept me laughing throughout the shoot. Those boys are great in front of the camera :) And baby Lauren is so adorable!

Hey Sandy: Artists Session

Saturday we had a short shoot with my brother's band, Hey Sandy. These guys are all incredible musicians, especially for their ages (about 17-19). Their sound is so different from other bands in this area, and other musicians their age. (I may be slightly partial...) :) If you were wondering, their name comes from the theme song from Nickelodean's "The Adventures of Pete and Pete".
You can listen to their music here: Hey Sandy Myspace.

Molly: Senior Session

Today I went out shooting with Molly, and her friend Katie came along, too. We had a great time and went to a new location I've realllly been wanting to shoot at. It's a weird, old, abandoned building that's surrounded by corn and wheat fields. The building itself looks like something out of a horror movie. I don't think I could go there by myself, hah, it was that creepy. But it worked for a great backdrop. :) We missed a crazy downpour by about 2 seconds. There wasn't as much light as I was hoping for, but I'm wicked happy with the way these turned out! Enjoy:

Shante: Senior Session

Sooo I let myself get pretty behind on posting. I've been having lots of fun shoots lately and meeting lots of great, new people!
Here's a few from the session I had with Shante. Shante and her mother had great expectations for these photos since Missy Carl did her older brother's session. In case you don't know, Missy's work is awesome!
I had a lot of fun on this shoot.. found some new locations, had b-e-a-utiful light, and had the opportunity to get to know Shante and her mom :) Enjoy:
