TERRA Ohio City

I believe in strong marriages over beautiful weddings. I hope and pray that all my couples spend the months and years after their wedding day growing closer together. I want for them to be able to celebrate being with each other in the good times, and the times when it feels like it’s all falling…

Sarah & Evan – A Cuyahoga Valley National Park Engagement

It was July 12. Sarah’s boyfriend Evan called to ask if she wanted to go on a hike. They had been together since high school, and had enjoyed many hikes before, but this one would be a little different. She was excited to spend time with Evan but was a little confused when Evan told…

Dana – A Laurel School Senior Portrait Session

Dana’s a girl that makes things happen. She’s ambitious, compassionate, and as you can see, gorgeous. I have a questionnaire that I ask seniors to fill out for me so I can get a little understanding of who they are and what they like before our session. Dana’s definitely impressed me. When I was in high…

Katie – A Rocky River High School Senior Portrait Session

I told you we weren’t done with the sunflowers. : ) Katie’s a Senior at Rocky River High School. She’s in the National Honors Society, she’s involved in drama productions, and she’s in the band. (It was an honor to meet a fellow mellophone player, or really just anyone who knows what a mellophone is.)…

Little Jack – An Avon Portrait Session

When I was about 8 years old, I only wanted one thing for my life – to be tiny. I’m not talking lose-a-few-pounds tiny. I mean straight up fit-in-your-pocket tiny. Honey We Shrunk Ourselves was my favorite movie, and The Borrowers wasn’t far behind. The idea of being enveloped by my surroundings was the most…

Lori Triplett Music – A Rocky River Reservation Portrait Session

You know when you meet someone and it feels like you’ve been friends forever? That’s Lori. We sent numerous emails before we finally met in person but as soon as we met, I knew this was going to be a good thing. She’s an incredible musician and needed some photos for merch she’s selling at…

Billy – A St. Ignatius Senior Session

Since I started this business, the majority of my time has been spent with couples. Proposals, engagements, and weddings are my bread and butter. But that’s definitely not all I do. This spring, I spent quite a bit of time photographing all kinds of people in all different stages of life, and I kind of…

The Bowen Family – A Rocky River Portrait Session

One of the things I’ve loved about starting this business has been connecting with people I haven’t seen in a while. Lauren and I went to high school together. Life took us both out of state for college, and 8 years later, we find ourselves back in the place it all began. I was so excited…

They asked me to take some photographs around their beautiful home for an upcoming feature in a publication. “Son, hear My words of wisdom Daughter, feel My arms around you Let peace like a river…

Kim & Thor’s Orchard Hills Anniversary

I love early mornings. I love the quiet just before the sunrise when it feels like the whole world is still sleeping. I love the slight chill in the air. I love the pinks and the blues that form what looks like a watercolor painting that I know I could never recreate. I think everything’s…

Natalie

Do you remember my friend, Natalie? Natalie and I have been friends since High School. So when she told me she was starting her own Yoga business, I was so excited to help her out. Last time we collaborated, she needed a few head shots and a few shots of her in action. This time was…
