Graduating from high school is the end of an era, but it is also the beginning of a new adventure in life. It is a time when you truly discover who you are, what you want to be, and where you want to go. Great things lay ahead for this amazing young lady! I have watched her grow up from toddler-hood with an beautiful spirit and soul.
Congratulations to you Taylor for all your hard work and to all the great accomplishments you will achieve! Your family is so proud of the wonderful young woman you have become, and all the amazing things that are to be. Go forth and rock it, girl!!
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”
-Henry David Thoreau
Graduating high school is a major milestone in a young person’s life. It’s closing a chapter on part of your life as a child, and starting a new one as an adult. You work hard for your grades, and your parents help to guide you to become a responsible adult and to make good choices. In this next phase in life, you get to choose and create your life path – it’s a pretty big deal!
Levi is a great young man! He’s smart and has a great sense of humor; he loves his Carolina Panthers and the outdoors. There are amazing things in store for him in the future! And as for mom and dad… their little boy has become a man. It’s bitter sweet, but they have done a WONDERFUL job raising such a great kid!
We ended up doing a double session over two days for Levi to hit up three awesome locations… I think this was more for mom to have as many keepsake images of her ‘baby boy’ all grown up. The locations were amazing, especially the farm that holds dear memories for their family as a whole. I had a great time with Levi capturing such beautiful images!
There are two gifts we should give our children; one is roots, and the other is wings.

2016 was a huge year for Jen & Charlie: they became first-time homeowners and had a bouncing baby boy, Ollie!!
Their maternity session was super fun – they crafted, they played guitars and sang a song they wrote together! I mean, could they BE any cuter?!? And I cannot forget to mention big sis Gina… although her furry face doesn’t show it, she’s excited about her new little human!
Congratulations to Jen & Charlie on their adorable little family!
BIG things are happening in the Gulling family!! Ryan and Heather are welcoming their 4th child this December, and after having 3 WONDERFUL boys, they are being blessed with a sweet baby girl.
And how fitting that the current baby of the family got to share the news that he is finally joining the ranks of ‘Big Brother’ while the older bros got to help announce that they are finally getting a sister!
There can be no better companion than a brother. There can be no better friend than a sister.

Meet Bear. This handsome young man just celebrated his third birthday this past weekend with a GQ portrait session and a smash cake… a Cincinnati Bengals smash cake to be exact. It was a gorgeous November day in central Ohio – we couldn’t have lucked out more (it’s usually pre-winter now in Ohio LOL)!

What an all-American little family!!! Dana is former military and Nicole is a kindergarten teacher, and their 4 year old daughter is a woman who knows what she wants… and doesn’t. We had an energetic split session – we started in fall and ended in winter, but on a day that was filled with autumnal beauty and rare Ohio warmth in January! We chased and feed the ducks, geese AND swan at the park; we had a tea party with a bunny and shenanigans at my studio – it was an all around great time with this family!
I can’t wait until we meet again!! (hopefully sooner than later!)

Now THIS is a family session! Mama Krichbaum has four wonderful children, all with their own families… totaling 19 people! Yep, 19!! (count ’em!) This fun-loving group was all jokes and laughs (ok, a few tears from a shy little cutie) as we meandered our way through Inniswoods Park on this wonderful autumn morning. It’s not an easy task to coordinate 19 people to meet at the same time, especially when over half of them are kids and toddlers, so a super kudos to them for getting there all at the same time, everyone dressed and ready to go! That was some super coordination LOL We even bonded over a very odd event during the shoot… click here for that story.
Without further adieu, here is the Krichbaum family!
19… and counting? //
In the middle of this blah Ohio winter, I miss color… that might be why I love this fall family session so much! The colors were rich and the weather was surprisingly warm in October. The Scioto Audubon Park is so serene and diverse, especially in fall with the golden tall grasses and jewel-toned leaves; it doesn’t feel like you are right next to Downtown Columbus and by a freeway!
The setting was perfect for this adorable, little family. And as an added bonus, the pint-sized family of 3 is growing to 4 this summer! I can’t wait for the maternity session!!
Family. Where life begins… and love never ends.
