Dee Dee & Kyle's Outdoor Wellington Wedding

September 17, 2010 | Weddings

Deanna contacted me about 5 weeks before her wedding. She comes from a very artistic family and was having a homespun wedding on her parents' beautiful land in Wellington, Ohio. As with many DIY wedding couples, they are working so hard on so many of the details of their wedding that they suddenly realize how important it is to hire a professional to capture their wedding day and not take any chances. In my opinion (and of course I really love and value photography) it is the most important thing to spend your money on.

Something sexy...

August 15, 2010 | Studio

Have you ever thought about creating some sexy images of yourself - either as a gift to your special someone or just for yourself? There has been a resurgence of "Boudoir" photography in recent years. These are NOT pornographic shots, but sexy in however you define sexy. That could be sweet sexy, sultry sexy, campy sexy, vampy sexy, natural sexy, etc. You don't even have to show much skin - It is all in your attitude, the mood and the location.

Kat's Headshots

February 16, 2010 | Headshots

For theater headshots it is really important to figure out what your casting type is. You need to create a look that works for how you tend to be cast.

Amy & Greg's Oberlin E-Session

February 1, 2010 | Engagements

Amy found out about me because she gets her hair done at Adeva. She contacted me, we met and looked at my wedding albums, and I created a custom package for her wedding photography. For all weddings over 6 hours, I throw in an engagement session for free. I do this for several reasons. 1. It is a fun way for me to get to know the couple. 2. It is a chance for me to take portraits of them in some cool locations during a session with no time constraints. And most importantly 3. The e-session is the BEST way for my couples to learn how to relax in front of the camera, get used to my style, and hopefully learn how to completely ignore (unless I get their attention) so that on their wedding day they stay focused on each other and the moment.

Karen's Oberlin High Senior Session

February 1, 2010 | Seniors

September 17, 2009 | Maternity + Babies

So just 6 days after Aliviah came into the world, I was at her house documenting this incredibly precious baby. When I arrived, she had just woken up from a super long nap, and she stayed awake and alert for the next hour. What an amazing baby.

September 10, 2009 | Seniors

Alyssa is amazing. She is this pint-sized girl who just believes in herself and it really shines through. She is gorgeous, no doubt, but she has a whole lot more going for her that looks alone. I had a great time getting to know her and capturing some incredible images of this important time in her life. Alyssa wanted to start her session at Cascade Park in Elyria because it holds a special place in her heart because it has been an important place for her family for years. We found all kinds of great spots there and then headed back to my studio. On the way back to town, I suggested we stop in a field and do some softball shots.

Rachel's Grad Session

August 19, 2009 | Seniors

Rachel is a recent graduate of Oberlin College and she is leaving town soon to move off into the world. She contacted me because she had never had a senior portrait taken in highschool because her choices had been the traditional cheesy background shots that you see at the generic photography studios. That hadn't appealed to her at all.

Well poor Jenny had been holding it together, but when she saw me she allowed her inner panic to come out - Her hairdresser had not shown up! She was freaking out, and rightfully so.

Kevin Ray's Headshots

May 20, 2009 | Headshots

The challenge with photographing an opera singer is that you have to convey drama and personality and spirit with just their face. You don't have their instrument to rely on to tell the viewer what they do. The photo has to catch your eye and draw you in.

What I love about day-after sesions is how much more relaxed and creative I can get with my clients. There is no pressure to get back to the wedding, or feeling like anyone is missing out on something, or worrying about the vows (if we are doing a before the wedding session). Here the couple just got to revel in the glow that comes from getting married. And Maureen's hair looked so sexy too!
