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

I've been Featured on ShootProof!

A few months ago a few people from Shoot Proof (they advertise themselves as: Professional sales tools and stunning client galleries for photographers for those that have never heard of them), they had Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep (NILMDTS) in their message and I know that Shoot Proof sponsors all of the galleries I upload for each session I volunteer.  Turns out they wanted to ask me a series of questions to potentially be featured in a blog post.  I said sure, and answered their questions.  So much time has gone by, I have forgotten about it... until today, when they emailed me the links.  Turns out it's a three part series and I'm featured in part 2.  

You guys, it's so well composed and written - I love it so much.  I realize it's not super personal like the other two parts are, but that's just kind of who I am as a person.  Most of the time, I do my best to stay objective - and because of this I'm pretty laid back and non-judgmental.heh  I hope the reader gets an insight as to what it's like for me when I'm on a NILMDTS photo session.  There's some tangible simple things I have to constantly remind myself to do and it helps so much.  You can read more about it here   <3

More than all of this though - being drawn to something is such a strong thing.  If you find these stories have touched you and you're feeling moved to do something about it - perhaps channel those energies.  If you're willing and able to volunteer your services it would be greatly appreciated.  You don't even have to be a photographer!  I know, here in Cincinnati, we're looking for a dispatcher at the moment.  When nurses call in to the 800 number, this person is responsible for fielding the call and gathering some information then posting to the group - asking if someone is available.  All I'm saying is: we'd love to have you on our team.  ...and if you have any questions, concerns, or just want to sit down and talk - I'm here, and I'd love to have coffee some time.

Emilia & Family Newborn Photography

You guys! When I photographed Claudia & Matthew back in June, CLAUDIA WAS PREGNANT! 

I didn't know it at the time, and, of course, became overwhelmingly excited for them.

Emilia came earth side 1/26/2018 at 3:59 am, 7lbs 2oz and 20 inches of her. 

This is my favorite session to date - it's not what I've been doing when it comes to Three Little Photo sessions, but it feels more real and it's something I plan to explore more. 
I hope you enjoy <3
