In the spirit of the day, 11.11.11, I figured I’d get on the blogging bandwagon & get some older photos up on this site! For the day I will be blogging 11 sessions, but breaking them up into a multiple posts for ease of reading! I’m still way behind on getting this place completely caught up, (especially now that I’m in the busy season), but I DO still want to have as many sessions here as I can even if they are way behind schedule.
To start with, I figured I should get the rest of the 2011 graduated seniors up before I start with my 2012 seniors! Sorry guy for not getting these up here sooner. I know you are out in the “real-world” or in college now, so this will be an homage to you all!
First up: Katelyn! The day was gorgeous even if a little windy. She took me to her grandmother’s old home & places that were so much more personal & I’m thankful that I got to see a place that was so loved & filled with tradition. Also we went to Hueston Woods for part of her session which I hadn’t been to before for work & hadn’t been in years period. Since Katelyn’s session, & bumming directions from her, I’ve been back many times as it’s gorgeous!
Later that fall I met & photographed Damien. He really just wanted pictures with his truck & jeep, but we managed to get shots for mom too. The smiles were achieved by threatening to let his little sister tell me embarrassing stories about him if we didn’t. I just love laughing shots no matter the subject!
Spring came and along with it endless rain. It ended up working out fine during Paul’s senior session though. The colors came out so vibrant for just being in the early spring so it was worth putting up with the dampness in the air & sprinkles that kept coming. I love that my studio is right in town to give the UCHS seniors the opportunity for their photos on “the home field”.
Finally the last session for the previous year’s graduating class was my cousin Emma & the only non UCHS senior in the bunch for that year. It was another day filled with the threat of rain, but the rain held off until right at the end of the session & for that we both were thankful. For Emma’s pictures we went down the road to her grandma’s, (my great-aunt’s), to experience the end of the spring florals.
Next up, & some of my favorite subjects, the newborns of 2011!
Happy 11.11.11 Part.1
NOTE**As of 6:50pm all photos have been added to the gallery! Thanks!
I don’t know that I was much more ready for Halloween this year than I was last year since I probably had double the amount of people stopping in! I was glad to see a couple familiar faces from last year, (probably more that I didn’t recognize in costume!), as well as families that I get to photograph throughout the year. It was an amazing turnout & I’m so so so glad we did this again! I love seeing all the kids dressed up!
A few things we different in how we set up after the experience last year. I still don’t know that I’m completely happy with the set up when larger groups come in so I still might have more tweaks by the time 2012 rolls around. If any of the families that stopped in here on Monday, or both years!, have any feedback for me, or just a comment on if this is something they’d like me to continue offering, that would be wonderful!
Anyway! The link to the Halloween Snaps 2011 gallery is here:
You just need to click on the image(s) of your children, hover over the photo or right-click, and then choose “download” to save to your computer. You are also able to order any prints online if you’d like or stop in my studio anytime. Otherwise, this is just my gift to you.
Of course I have to leave you with just a few of my favorites from the night:
I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween & a great start to November!!

I just wanted to get a quick post up to let you know I’ll be out of town for the next week. I have plans on getting more of my sites & pages updated while I’m gone, including blogging some older sessions, in the hopes of getting caught up before the rest of the busy fall season.
If you have plans to schedule an appointment do so soon. Weekends are already filling up but weekdays are still available. I’ll still have my phone & computer with me to stay in touch, so don’t hesitate to call me if you have questions or need to schedule a session.
And because I can’t leave without posting a picture, here’s my most recent client, & first maternity session, Katie & little miss Madelyn! More images coming soon!

Well we didn’t luck out on the temperature Monday night, but it still was a lovely evening! I know these kids had had a long long day, so pictures were probably low on their list of what they wanted to do on a hot summer night. But if one bribe works it was a promise of a “surprise” for later in the week in the form of Kings Island!! (I wanted the surprise to be ice cream & was hoping I could partake on that one!!)
Even through the chaos of four young kids, including little miss toddler from my last post, we managed to have a fun time driving their Grandma nuts! hehe! I mean! We managed some great shots even with their silly faces! Plus, I got to hear Chloe talk when the cows, (“Moos”), came closer to the fence!
Now I know the family is heading for a vacation tomorrow, so I wanted to get these to them quick! Here’s a little peek at some of my favorites while their gallery finishes loading.
Off to the Union County 4-H Fair for me!
