A Run for Our Money

Friday, September 23, 2016

Tonight we would have been hosting our gender reveal party and celebrating with all of our friends on the surprise if Small Fry is a boy or girl. However, little one decided to not cooperate at our appointment on Monday and now we have to go back in two weeks because they were not able to get the proper measurements. But that is all okay... 
Soon enough we will know what he or she is. Whether it be in two weeks or in February lol We did reschedule our party for that Friday in two weeks so here is hoping that it shows it's goods (that is the only time I will telling you that little one!)

Either way, we were able to spend a good 45 minutes looking at our little small fry on the big screen and hear that amazing little heartbeat (most amazing sound ever) and a couple little pictures to take home with us to hold us over until next time. 


Graduation Mini Session || Maddy & Kirstyn

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

My cousin Maddy and her best friend Kirstyn are planning their graduation party and wanted to get some pictures taken together for their save-the-dates and to display at their party. 
We ended up meeting in downtown Zanesville last week and had a blast shooting this mini session. 

Maddy & Kirstyn, enjoy every single minute of your senior year from the dances, to football games and everything in between. All too soon you will be walking across the stage getting that diploma and then off to college. Life is about to start speeding up real fast. Have fun and create lots of memories.

Bump Day || Week 19

Sunday, September 11, 2016

I figured I should probably start taking my bump pictures since we are one week away from being half way through this pregnancy. Originally I was going to do them inside in the same place every week but Ohio is so pretty with the seasons changing I thought I would do them outside in a different place every week. This week my cousin Maddy snapped them for me while we were doing her senior pictures at Dillon Falls. They turned out great for her just getting her hands on my fancy schmancy camera. We cannot wait to find out next week what this little baby is!!!


Maternity Session || Amber

Wednesday, September 7, 2016

A few months ago Amber contacted me about doing her maternity pictures. We set a date for closer to her due date and one that she would hopefully still be comfortable at. Well the time flew and before we knew it we were planning the details to meet up for her session. Amber wanted an outdoorsy and possibly by the river maternity session and we were able to knock both of those requests off the wish list. Friday evening I met Amber and her Mom in Dresden and we headed out to do her pictures. I thoroughly enjoyed doing these pictures with Amber and she was game for anything to capture a perfect picture.

Amber is going to be a perfect Mommy and I cannot wait to meet Baby Q here soon enough. I have a feeling this will not be the last time her and her Momma grace these pages of my blog!









Weekending

Tuesday, September 6, 2016



Extended Holiday weekends are always the absolute best! But they are also the weekends that go by way too fast. I didn't end shooting a wedding on Saturday so I pretty much had the whole weekend to myself and it was truly perfect. 

Friday Fun

Friday, August 26, 2016

Hi Friends. Can we get a big amen that it is finally Friday! 
How about a five on Friday with some randomness...

1. Lets just get this one out of the way because it has been on my mind for over a week now and unfortunately will be until next week too. Last week I went to see the dentist for a tooth that was giving me issues and they scheduled for it to be pulled last night. Well after lots of numbing and pulling that darn thing wasn't coming out. So now I am scheduled to see an oral surgeon on Tuesday because it is going to need cut out. I am not looking forward to this at all and quite frankly am very nervous about the whole thing. Here is hoping they don't have to put me out for the procedure as I would like to keep Small Fry okay. Prayers are greatly appreciated!

2. August 26th. 11 years with that hunk of mine. Yep, eleven years ago we met at the County Fair and started dating at the first football game and we haven't been separated since. Life has been absolutely amazing with him by my side and I cannot wait to celebrate tonight. We are going to go to dinner at Roosters and then to see Bad Moms. Happy Anniversary Babe.

Back to School Session - Luke's First Day of Kindergarten

Thursday, August 25, 2016


Sunday evening I went out to the farm to do the rest of Aubrey's maternity pictures and I ended up throwing together this adorable Back to School session for Luke. He is starting Kindergarten today and I thought it would be absolutely perfect.
