Totally Awesome Photo Session

For the past several years, I have done a themed photo session with Jenna and her cousin Carsyn. It started when Carsyn was 1 and Jenna was 3. We bought them matching dresses and took them to a local photographer to take photos of them together. After that first session, I became the photographer and we seem to have taken photos of them in matching outfits of some type almost each summer since. This summer while they were visiting Ohio we started brainstorming what type of session we could do this time. We came up with a lot of fun ideas, but decided to go all out and did an 80s photo session. We had so much fun shopping for 80s accessories (who knew neon accessories, net gloves, and even banana clips would be so easy to find) and quickly came up with their outfits. By the time their hair was crimped and they were dressed, they seemed to have embraced the "Valley Girl" attitude and were ready for their photo moment! I love how the photos turned out......and love that they will have such fun photos as memories of their cousin time together this summer!!

Simper Family | Van Wert Family Photography

I have taught with Jen for the past 2 years and have heard lots of stories about her family and her three sweet kids, so I was excited when she contacted me and asked me to do some family photos for them. I loved their bright blue and colors for a summer family photo session.

Brooke | Parkway Senior Photography

Brooke was my first senior of the season. She is a student at Parkway....and one of the sweetest girls I have ever met. She was pretty nervous at the beginning of our session, but by the end we were chatting and laughing like old friends. We took all her photos on the farm where she lives. It's her family farm and had some amazing spots for photos!

THANKS Brooke for letting me take your senior pictures. I hope you have an amazing senior year....I just know you are going to do great!!!!

Suzuki Kids

I have photographed the Suzuki kids many times. They are some of my favorite kids to photograph!! This time we combined both Suzuki families to do a cousins session. It was honestly one of the hottest days of the summer.....almost 100 degrees and a heat advisory....but we went ahead with the session anyhow. The kids did an awesome job, despite the heat. We met at their grandma's house.....who had been taking extra special care of her gorgeous flower beds so we could use them as a backdrop!

The kids were promised some time on the slip and slide if they cooperated during pictures. It was the perfect way to end a photo session on a hot, hot day!!
