{cans for comments...}


Thank you to all who have posted comments, we are donating 30 cans of food to the local food shelter. I also had one offer to match them, so thank you so much Cari!!!! I encourage all who read here....if you can find it in your hearts and your pockets, please give what you can to the needy this holiday season. Our family has a few more things up our sleeves for families who aren't able to have a Chistmas this year due to hardships and I am enjoying teaching Ava the idea of helping others who are less fortunate than we are.


Sharing some love....

I am jumping on the bandwagon of a large group of photographers found here that are giving back! For every comment left on ANY post from now until midnight on Friday, I will donate one canned good to the local food bank. I am excited to show this to Ava and use this as a lesson in giving to those who are is a great time of year to give back and spread your love.

I will also secretly revel in all of your comments. LOL!

{mr messy}


or should I say...Mr Naughty? He was sitting on top of his high chair tray here. Right after this was taken he stood up. Boys! I'm in for it I think! *grin*

{sweet pea and company}



Ava isn't feeling well tonight but she was still eager to help mama try out her new lights and to model these hair accessories by
Sweet Pea and Company. Lisa, the owner of the hair bow boutique does amazing work and has been SO great to work with! Go and check out her website!

PS...I have had a lot of people ask me where the brown beanie hat with the huge-o flower came guessed it. Sweet Pea and Company...and they're only $12!! Go get one!

{family of 3}






I am beyond thrilled with this session! They said they weren't photogenic...can you believe it? I think they were fibbing =)

I love love love how obvious their love is for each other....and how it shows in these photos. The little looks that families and couples share make me feel so lucky to be able to witness it and record it...frozen in time. Steffany and Steve, thank you so much and I so enjoyed meeting you! Little Sophia is a DOLLY, but I'm sure you already know that. :)

{lori and chad...}







Lori and I have been best friends since our junior year in high school. Lemme tell ya, that was a long time ago *snicker* We have both lived on opposite sides of the country, coming back to live together in Toledo and then we both went our own ways to marry. She has recently moved back to the area and I am so thankful to have her back in my life. We can go for months on end not seeing each other but when we do it's like no time has passed. Anyway, I'll stop with my sappiness. =) Lori and Chad, we love you both...thank you for being in our lives!
As a sidenote....they wanted pictures with their dogs. Well, what an experience THAT was! 3/4 of the pictures had a dog nose or dog butt in one corner.....they didn't really want their pictures taken (the dogs) but HAD to be running in front of the camera at all times, LOL!

If you need to contact me please call 419 309 2346 or email me at

{chixie and honey...does matilda jane}




I recently had a few sessions with some gorgeous little girls showcasing the clothing by Matilda Jane I just love their clothes and think that it adds such a great touch of whimsy to any photo session! I have quite a few pieces for little Ava and loan them out for little girls to wear for photo sessions if the parents wish. :)
