Come celebrate life, savor sacred moments, and grow in love. 



  Emily and John are a big ball of light. They radiate joy. They’re playful, fun-loving, and full of surprises. In fact, when I asked John what his favorite quality about Emily is, he said, “Emily spreads love so easily. She is unconditional joy.” I can’t think of a more accurate statement to describe them […]

We rose with the sun for Hannah and Mitchell’s morning engagement session in September. Their vision for their E-session was cozy and comfortable, two of my favorite “C” words. Another great “C” word is cute, and this session is loaded with it. Cooper, their puppy, came along for some portraits and elevated the cuteness even […]

Julia and Andy’s wedding at Lake Erie Building was filled with elements that reflected their fun, creative personalities.

Despite the higher temperatures for the next couple of days, Fall is alive and well in Cleveland, Ohio. Brad and Shae were the epitome of Autumn romance during their engagement session at Squire’s Castle and Edgewater State Park last Saturday. I love their sweaters and Shae’s cute green scarf! As we walked along the shore […]

Shae & Brad: A Cleveland Engagement



I’m often asked about the kind of places I love to do portrait sessions. My answer? I have three: gardens, estates, and museums. I’m passionate about places that have a sense of history.
