2018…9th ANNUAL CHRISTMAS MINI SESSIONS…

Each year I anticipate what this year’s Christmas Mini Session theme will be….and I am in love with this year….”Christmas Tree Farm”! After spending weeks watching the Hallmark and Lifetime Christmas Movies, I have come to the conclusion, that I made my own little hometown cozy Christmas movie set. I wanted to let the natural elements and antique pieces of this beautiful super old barn shine through. Turning it into a comfy & cozy tree farm, where you can get your pre cut trees, wreaths, take a wagon ride, and even help make wreaths at the “wreath making table”.  These sets always take a good bit of my time, it took about a week to set up, I spent 5 days shooting 62 sessions, and countless hours upon hours editing all the photos! Exhausting as it all is, I love the results and the wonderful remarks from my clients. Words of Affirmation is definitely my love language! All wouldn’t be possible without the property owner who puts up with my shenanigans and is ever so helpful, and I will forever be so grateful! My husband whom I boss around and put to work as needed and my family who helps me anyway they can from cutting trees to watching my kiddos. But, the biggest thanks goes to all of my clients. Because without you, I wouldn’t be doing this. You eagerly book a session without knowing what to expect and you trust me with your precious family.  This time of year always makes me feel honored and humbled to make a memory with you and be apart of your lives. THANK YOU!  Merry Christmas Everyone! May you spend it happily with the ones you love the most!

WINFIELD & SANDY…MARRIED…15 YEARS…

He opens up the car door for her each time she gets in the car! every. time.  Who does that? Maybe young love?  But, they aren’t a newly engaged couple.  Win & Sandy just celebrated their 15 year wedding anniversary. We actually went back to the very spot where they had an intimate wedding ceremony 15 years ago.  It was on the front porch of the Cook Estate, in the heart of Cook Forest. I just love this couple and everything they got going on! 😉 Congrats on 15 years and a lifetime more!
this simple road leads them on their next chapter of their life! stay tuned!

AJ & STEVIE…MARRIED…8-18-18…

EPIC. that was AJ & Stevie’s wedding day. Black tie, gorgeous gowns, a giant group of family and friends showering them with love and laughter….a simple yet gorgeous ceremony tucked in the woods next to Mahoning creek (which AJ and his groomsman floated down earlier that day). Surprising their parents, families, bridal party and hundreds of guests with a ton of confetti to end their ceremony!  A cameo appearance from Ted and Phil. I mean, epic right?

I knew Stevie would be stunning…..but WOW!
love me some gorgeous lighting reflecting off of the creek!squad goals.
so handsome!a mom and her boys 🙂 I always love doing a first lookted 🙂Phil makes many appearances at Punxsutawney weddings. So how could the “Rainmaker” not handle Phil for his very own wedding?!
the perks of having a first look. we grabbed this gorgeous shot at golden hour right before they were ready to walk down the aisle. probably the best end to any ceremony ever!!! nice job guys!Congratulations Mr & Mrs Derume!
