{Does this ring make her look engaged?}

December 18th, 2015

When Kyle called to see if I would photograph his surprise proposal to his girlfriend, Randi, I was all in!  I couldn’t wait!  Kyle and I formed a plan and we met downtown Toledo for the big moment.  How gorgeous to be able to photograph and document such a meaningful time!

{Oh-so-beautiful fall shoots}

December 18th, 2015

This shoot fell on one of those fall days… the oh-so-perfect days that we have been blessed to have so many of.  This is another one of our favorite JEM families that we see every year.  The girls melt my heart and their smiles are so sweet!  I think their parents would agree with that […]

December 16th, 2015

I have been photographing this little sweetheart since she was in her momma’s belly.  I love the simplicity of these holiday images and we love her holiday hat too. 🙂

{This is Real Life}

December 15th, 2015

It’s funny because we put together these blogs and show all of our best work on our website, Facebook, etc. but we hardly ever get to show what really goes on during our shoots.  If you know us you know that we do enjoy a good outtake.  Most of our shoots, while we make them […]

It’s funny because we put together these blogs and show all of our best work on our website, Facebook, etc. but we hardly ever get to show what really goes on during our shoots.  If you know us you know that we do enjoy a good outtake.  Most of our shoots, while we make them look so perfect, actually involve so many funny moments, temper tantrums, bribing, tears, etc.  I have wanted for so long to show a blog, a beautiful blog filled with gorgeous pictures… and then at the end show what ACTUALLY went on during the shoot.  I get my chance… mom said it was okay I share these beautiful AND funny moments here.  The first part of this blog are the gorgeous finished images that I was hired to get.  I’m so happy with them… sidecut park is so pretty and when the water is low it’s so fun to go out on the rocks…

In all reality though, most shoots aren’t as glamorous as we make them look.  Here are some behind the scenes moments from this shoot as well.  For all you moms who apologize to me… thinking your shoot is the worst… every shoot has their moments.  In this particular shoot there was shyness, screaming, crying, puke, and this little muffin fell feet first into the mud ruining his entire outfit includes JCrew shoes… “it’s a memory” 🙂
