The Finished Product | EntrywayJuly 21, 2014

Cleveland Ohio House Rennovation
Hello, neglected house. I still remember you and all your sprucing needs. This is about the time of year I’m sobusyIcanbarelythink, and Nathan takes over as the domestic one. Really. He washes dishes, cooks dinner and keeps our little house tidy. He’s the best.

In the midst of all that, he managed to build a bench for our entryway. Oh yeah, and a custom coat hanger. Did I mention he’s the best? This space is tiny, but I wanted to show off his handiwork. Enjoy!

Nathan did this all by himself! From start to finish! At first we weren’t so sure about adding in a permanent bench to an already tight space, but now we can’t imagine this spot without it.

Haha! I just noticed Nathan peeking around the doorway in this photo. ;)

This is Rosie’s favorite spot! I don’t blame her. :)

North Canton Ohio Lifestyle Family SessionJuly 16, 2014

Hoover Park North Canton Family Photos
I met Lisa, Chad and Henry on the most beautiful summer evening in North Canton. To say that this family is adorable would be a huge understatement. There aren’t words to describe how beautiful, sweet, loving and fashionable the A family is! ;) My favorite part of this whole session was watching Lisa smile through the entire thing. And I mean the entire thing. She ADORES her little boy, and it just melts my heart to witness that love. And as much as Lisa wears her heart on her sleeve, Chad is the strong, quiet presence who is incredibly proud of this little life he helped bring into the world. There’s something so special about observing a father-son relationship, and especially one as devoted as Chad and Henry. This little guy is incredibly lucky to be loved so much by such awesome parents!

Enjoy my (many) favorites!

Carolyn & Alex | Cleveland Cultural Gardens Film PortraitsJuly 14, 2014

Cleveland Ohio Film Portrait Photographer
Over the last year, Carolyn has become such a great friend to me. This girl is one of those people who everyone instantly likes. She’s warm and personable and also witty and interesting. She has so many cool life stories, AND she’s a fellow photographer … all the way in Iowa City! I think it speaks to Carolyn’s character that she has friends all over the globe (and I mean ALL over! These two are seasoned travelers).

Carolyn and Alex are from Cleveland and asked me to do a film photo session with them while they were home for a week. Carolyn and I have sort of explored film together (although truthfully, she’s helped me way more than I’ve helped her!), and I was seriously so honored–and really, really excited–to do an entire session with my Mamiya. I love way too many of these to narrow them down, so get ready for a long blog post. These two are really good looking, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to look through all these photos. :)

Shannon & Joe | Indiana Countryside WeddingJuly 11, 2014

Batesville Indiana Wedding
It started at a Reds game. As the story goes, Shannon and Joe were more into each other than the baseball game, but for good reason, right? :) They both say they knew right away that they would get married, and their gut was obviously right.

“Joe is my favorite person to hang out with, he makes me laugh, we never run out of conversation, and he’s cute,” Shannon said.

Joe is the self-proclaimed softie of the relationship, and it was so adorable watching the two of them from behind my camera all day. Shannon and Joe got married on THE most beautiful summer day, and Nathan and I were so honored to travel to Batesville, Ind., for the occasion. (Fun fact: Nathan and Shannon went to high school together!)

Enjoy the exciting years ahead, you guys. Thanks for making us laugh all day and treating us so well! You guys are the best!

Joe’s father has passed away, but Shannon and Joe make sure he was remembered all day. His restored truck sat on Shannon’s parent’s property all day and was used for a lot of the portraits (see below!)
