I'm on a Mission

It’s a joy for me to provide light and bright photography in the studio and the beautiful outdoor locations in midwest Ohio, and beyond, for brilliant, elegant folks who love to laugh! I know the most joyful, timeless images are created from a wonderful experience, so my goal is to help you feel at home in front of my camera and taken care of from booking to delivery of your images! 
I pride myself on giving a high end and happy experience to every person who graces the front of my camera! I'll show you my favorite locations with gorgeous light and beautiful backgrounds, from parks to secret bridges to little studio sets in the garden. I schedule all of my portrait sessions around the best light of the day and will give you the highest quality images I possibly can!

Just a couple tips

What to Wear

You know what you feel good in, make it trendy, do you!
 GIRLS : If you can’t find that perfect dress, but you rock a good pair of skinny jeans, do that. If you can barely walk in heels, there’s no harm in doing cute & comfy boots or pretty sandals. Don’t forget to layer!
GUYS: steer away from logos T’s, but otherwise a nice button down, roll up the sleeves to keep it casual if you like! 

01.

Wear what makes you feel beautiful ......or handsome. 

Colors and Patterns
Don’t forget about what colors you look great in & steer away from neons. Think about the colors that compliment your skin tones, you know that color everyone says you look good in:) 
Patterns, totally do it, there aren't any rules, Patterns and textures are good, layers are even better! Have a couple awesome colors within each outfit and lots of layers! Play with it!

Color Choices

02.

Play with colors, patterns, and always LAYER!
For  large group, anything goes nowadays! I usually choose two to three main neutral colors and maybe one to two accent pop of color. Add those pops in shoes, undershirts, bracelets, hairpieces, bow ties..... Also mixing stripes with plaids and patterns is okay & preferred. We want to see your personality & style!

Large family groups

03.

Accessories
I love great accessories, seems to make the portrait even more put together! Try jean jackets, belts, statement necklaces, scarves, hats, blazers...... Also don’t forget to go for it, go over the top for an outfit! Those make the most epic images! 
Maybe a prop : for babies, their favorite blanket or toy, for the whole family: an old pick-up, let's bring out the sofa in a field, all play with a bunch of balloons, your favorite hobby or your career 

Don't forget the details

04.

GLASSES Don’t forget about the glasses.
Since we can’t move the sun, we can’t control lens glare. Best bet is to ask your eye doctor for a spare pair without the lenses or to temporary remove your lenses. Those with transitional lenses this is an absolute must. Those will always be dark in your portraits even in studio, but especially outside.
OH this is going to be AWESOME!!!
