They were convinced it was a girl. Jeanna and Brian decided not to find out the sex of their baby while Jeanna was pregnant (because, as Brian says, “It’s one of the few, true surprises in life”) … but, still, they were convinced it was a girl. So much so that they didn’t really agree on a boy’s name before they went to the hospital. And then Brian saw the mop of hair and knew, somehow, he had a son.

Jeanna and Brian are smitten with Wyatt Nathaniel. His pouty lips and hair just like his dad’s, his porcelain skin and baby wrinkles–what’s not to love?? I so enjoyed spending a chilly February afternoon with these three. Enjoy my favorites!

I love this one. It looks like Brian’s already imparting his wisdom on Wyatt.

Kelsey & Matt | The Club at Hillbrook Winter WeddingFebruary 27, 2014

Club at Hillbrook Cleveland Ohio Winter Wedding

As freshmen at Miami University, Kelsey and Matt heard the stories about kissing your sweetheart under the Upham Hall arch. As the tale goes, couples who kiss under the arch will get married. Kelsey and Matt didn’t know each other as incoming freshmen, but a couple years later they would meet in a marketing class inside the very building that houses the arch. And a couple more years later? They’d be married as Miami Mergers.

I admittedly get overly excited about Miami Mergers because I am half of one myself, but I think Kelsey and Matt would 100 percent agree that Miami is a special place (check out their engagement photos around campus). And these two are special themselves. I could gush all day about how fun-loving and genuine Kelsey and Matt are, but they gush about each other much better.

“I love that I get to see a very goofy, fun side of Matt that nobody else gets to see,” Kelsey said. “Everyone knows that he is charming and funny, but I get to see how truly hilarious he is!”

And then Matt chimed in:

“She picks up ALL of my slack and is always ridiculously cute.”

As if this wedding couldn’t get any better, Elizabeth Anne Designs is featuring Kelsey and Matt’s big day on their blog today! I’ve admired Elizabeth Anne Designs for SO long, and I’m so, so excited that these two are featured as a “Real Wedding.” Make sure to head over there and leave them some love!

The perfect amount of snow fell for Kelsey and Matt’s winter wedding, and Kelsey had cute boots on hand to help her navigate outdoor portraits (yes, we did ALL pictures outside! It was fantastic!)

Kelsey’s dress from Something White was so unique and beautiful! I highly suggest giving Karin and Rebecca a buzz if you’re in the market for a gown.

Kelsey’s grandmother’s fur helped keep her warm all day.

Baby Gabrielle | 1 YearFebruary 25, 2014

Hudson Ohio Lifestyle Family Photos

I vividly remember traveling to Karla and Cedric’s house on a chilly February afternoon last year. They had just welcomed their baby girl into the world, and she was this tiny, little newborn sleeping in her crib. Already she had these eyelashes that you just knew were going to be gorgeous as she continued to grow. Has it really already been a year?? I can only image how time has flown for Karla and Cedric as they’ve watched their baby grow into this adorable and active almost-toddler. What a sincere pleasure it’s been to keep up with this little girl and her kind parents. Here is Miss Gabrielle at 1 year young!

That personalized birthday book down there was a gift from Jen and Matt and Lucy. How fun is it that all my clients know each other??

Amanda and Tyler are expecting their third girl. When I asked Tyler about it, he just laughed. He’s outnumbered, but he’s such a good dad and I don’t think he minds TOO much. :) Amanda is due any day now (she was afraid she’d go into labor during our session!), and they’re both so excited to meet their newest addition to the family. Enjoy these wintery baby bump photos!

It was freezing, yes, but Hannah just wanted to put her bare hands in the snow.
