They’ve stayed with me since their engagement session 8 years ago! They’re some of the most genuine and kind people you’ll ever meet. And they’re […]

All of these sweet giggles make for the perfect adventurous family photos! The laughter and scrunchy noses are why I absolutely love family sessions. Of course, that means I have to actually be funny, and luckily enough, I come from a long line of sarcastic and funny people. 😉 While photographing little kids can be […]

Emily and Alan’s Bell’s Banquets wedding day was such a beautiful celebration that I will never forget. It was particularly memorable because Emily is my cousin, and many of the guests were family members that I haven’t seen in years! Even our great aunt and uncle took a nearly 6 hour trip to be there.

Madilynn is basically a queen of dance. Since she was young, she’s been attending the Steel City Dance Academy to learn how to dance and perform!

Carina and Ryan are anticipating the arrival of their baby girl, any day now! A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of capturing this time of their lives with maternity photos at Autumn Ridge Farm. The folks there on the farm let us come very early for the best light right after sunrise. They […]

Laughter and smiles are contagious when you find the one. Karen and Rick are no exception! While their life stories led them into a lot of sadness, finding each other certainly brought their joy back. They met through online dating, but quickly realized that they had lived parallel lives just a few blocks apart from […]

If you’re familiar with the Irwin community at all, you’re probably familiar with the Woleslagle paint store. Mrs. Woleslagle has been a prominent member of the Irwin community for a very long time.
