When Illness Leads to More Illness

First, I am not a doctor.  This is not to be regarded as medical advice.  These are simply my experiences and my opinions that I’ve come to land on after the past 4-5 years of being chronically sick.  During that time, I was given myriad diagnoses, numerous medications, and had a couple of surgeries.  My symptoms with chronic sinusitis were always consistent but there were a number of other illness that went unexplained.  It was one thing after another after another.  I’ve recently learned that […]

Desert Wedding

I recently had the pleasure of second shooting with the lovely and talented Ashely Mergl  of AM Photography again.  Everything about this wedding was gorgeous…the bride, the groom, the bridal parties and setting in beautiful Phoenix, AZ.

5 Year Old Photo Session at CCV

I have had the privilege of knowing this little sweetheart for a few years now. She goes to the same school as my kids and they have been buddies for awhile.

You can tell how much love there is between them, it overflows on the photographs. Sam- thank you for being a good friend […]

Though she was a very busy lady bug, she still gave me lots […]

I can’t think of a better way to have spent my last night in Ohio than photographing this beautiful and fun family at Mill Creek Park. The weather was perfect and the light was gorgeous. I can’t even begin to explain what a joy these two darling little girls and their big brother were to photograph-we really had a blast! Their mom has been saving a wall in their house for some time to fill with photos, and we were […]

Mommy and Me Session at Thunderbird Park

I recently had the honor of photographing one of my friends and her son for a “Mommy and Me” session. Her son is friends with my children, and it’s been so special to watch them grow over the last few years. He’s a very handsome little guy with lots of charisma, as you can tell from his wonderful expressions in these pictures! We worked Tanja’s guitar into the session as she’s very musical and recently began taking guitar lessons. She is […]
