Coffee Shop Thoughts

I -really don’t like it when I’m asked: “Who are you?” …how am I supposed to answer that? How can anyone really answer that? We are constantly doing things and learning. Every day we go places, and encounter new stimulus. Who I am, changes, constantly. Plus, I’m a mother to my children, a wife to my husband, a daughter to my parents, a friend to my friends… Who I am to you — might be very different in how we interact. :) “CLEAN YOUR ROOM” haha no…….

I don’t think I’m alone in this, am I? I mean, there might be something that happens today that changes the way you look at life tomorrow.

Take the process of becoming a parent. You may be going through it right now… maybe you feel yourself changing. Not only your body, but the paradigm shift that happens. It’s a big deal.

Then, the next thing you know, the kids are 4 and 7 years old... It all goes by so quickly!

I may hate being asked that very personal question, but I can say this pretty consistently: I love who I am when I’m behind the camera.

Because of all this, and so many more reasons, I truly believe you deserve images of your family, as they are today. I would love to provide those images to you. The rough mornings, getting dressed and presentable. The dinner time messes, in all their glory. Newborns, babies, toddlers …they’re the best, and the worst.lol

“A parent” doesn’t define who I am, or who you are, but it may very well be a big part of our lives at the moment. So let’s capture it! <3

Call me, let’s chat - I’d love to get to know you and your family and how we can capture authentic moments. 513-400-5043

Business Among Mom's Lifetime Member

Lately, I’ve been searching for a shared space to rent. It’d be for Three Little Photo services for in-person consultations. Anyway, I came across this Business Among Moms Network, attended a few of their meetings - and really love their support and what they’re trying to create here in Cincinnati. So, I became a member!

If you’re a mom, and you work or own your own business - we’d love to see you!
Let me know, and I’ll be happy to tell you about it and invite you to a Tuesday meeting. We meet the first Tuesday of every month in Montgomery.

Ikea Lifestyle Photoshoot - West Chester, Ohio

This past week I had an opportunity to do something I have never done before: partake in a lifestyle photo shoot at Ikea (in West Chester, Ohio). It was also with people I had never met before either. I recently joined a Cincinnati Photographers’ group on FB. Random people, I’ve never met, post their most up-to-date work, we discuss gear, how-to’s, etc. An admin posted a group shoot event, free, to anyone in the group, and I decided to join! Why not? …..and I am sooo happy I did! It was a smaller group, 5 of us (11 confirmed “going” on the event). We didn’t really have any “models”, just each other, and a few ladies brought their kids. These ladies were REAL and NICE and INSPIRING. I wasn’t sure how my images would turn out, the light is harsh and different. But overall, I’m very pleased. Some of these images I absolutely LOVE.

So, thank you, Sara - host/organizer of this little outing. I appreciate you - and I look forward to future events where I’m able to let my creativity flow <3

And, if anyone would be interested in having a professional shoot at Ikea, please, let me know! We can definitely set something up!
