Belly Dancer { Dayton, Ohio Commercial Photographer }

So I had a lot of people curious about my midnight session the other night. Well, it was quite a session and I enjoyed every minute of it. We called it quits about 1:30 a.m. and I couldn’t wait to see what we had on the cards.

Emily is a belly dancer in the Dayton, Ohio area. She dances on Saturday nights at Hookah Bazaar in Belmont, Ohio. Show starts at 11pm, you should definitely check her out!! Anyway, she needed a new portfolio for marketing materials. I was very excited when she contacted me. Our session was a last minute scrap-together which is why it was so late at night. Hooray for night shift workers, eh? :)

She bought a ton of elaborate outfits and we were thrilled to play with it all. I love all the fabulous colors and shimmering pieces. But my absolute fave is that last outfit. HOLY COW!! Here’s a sneak peek of the fun we had. Thanks Emily! Hope you enjoy!

How about a wedding teaser? { Urbana, OH Wedding Photographer }

It’s been 2 weeks since Mandy and Chris said “I do” in front of all their friends and family so I definitely think it’s time for a wedding preview. The Mr. and Mrs. are enjoying their honeymoon in Hawaii (ummm….jealous!) and I hope they are living it up. I fully expect them to have tons of pictures and stories to share. Until then, here’s a sneak peek at their beautiful day.

She’s a complete natural { Dayton, Ohio Boudoir Photographer }

Some people really astonish you when they get half naked and rock the session harder than if they had stayed fully clothed. I think there’s truth to be told in the old saying “Beware the quiet ones”. This reserved woman had the sex kitten hidden within. It wasn’t hard to find nor did it take much coaxing to come out. She had the look, the body, the clothes, and the attitude. Probably the easiest and fun session I’ve ever had. Thank you, Little Miss Hottie. I hope you enjoy the preview!

A year has passed already { Jamestown, Ohio Child Photographer }

Little Miss Ava is about to turn a year old and I can’t believe how much she’s grown. I photographed her as a newborn and I can honestly say she had a MUCH better time at this session. Her newborn session was pretty rough and I felt so sorry for the little one. She had reflux and just wasn’t comfy at all. Poor Mommy was in that stage of weepy and oh so tired. We were still able to capture some pretty pictures, thankfully.

Here’s a picture from that session. I love comparing newborn and 1 year old pictures. It’s amazing how much change and yet they’re still the same. Look at that sweet little nose! :)


This time, however, was a different story. Little Miss Ava is now Big Miss Ava and she has TONS of energy! She kept us both on our toes for the session and it was a blast. I love sweating for a good reason! Look at these gorgeous captures of a picture perfect county girl.


So pretty!! And that snoot!! Isn’t it adorable?! Rotten, I tell ya. :) Hope you enjoyed the preview!


This little girl is about 5 weeks old and was so curious as to what we were doing. I adored her and she almost came home with me. Trust me, if I knew my husband wouldn’t have a fit, she would have. Sweetness.
