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.

This is Khaos. He just turned 3 years young over the weekend and couldn’t be happier about it. We lucked out with an amazing, sunny day in early November in Ohio, so he decided to take a dip to play fetch before indulging in his Cincinnati Bengals birthday cake!

Lauren and John are expecting their first son July 14th…. well….. we’ll see how that goes!! July in Ohio is not so forgiving with the humidity, then add being 40 weeks pregnant on top of it…. UGH! Poor thing!!!
At least the temps were not too bad when we went out for their maternity session towards the end of June. Golden hour in the Park of Roses – it was beautiful! We did make a quick pit-stop outside of The Ohio State University football stadium to commemorate the magic night lil Jon was created… after a Buckeye victory, of course. What was kind of cool was that while the main Ohio State Marching Band (aka TBDBITL) was in Cleveland for the Cavs NBA Championship celebration, there were some band members practicing close by, so it was like a mini ‘game day’ vibe!
Congratulations to the mama and papa-to-be on their bundle of joy as they ‘patiently’ wait for his arrival! The days seem long now as you wait for him to be born, but days will go faster once he is here…. treasure every moment!

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? //
