We love to use our time and talent to donate sessions to rescue dogs in need of homes.  I have been so fortunate to meet and work with a couple fantastic shelters and rescues.  Today I want to introduce you to The Wayne County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center & Paws Fur Life Rescue. Two of my favorites!

It absolutely breaks my heart to hear that a dog has lived in a shelter for a year.  That is 364 days too long if you ask me!  I had an idea... what if we brought some of the dogs into our studio to capture their personalities. Often times seeing a dog in a cage can really alter their true personality.  They are usually scared, confused, and lonely.  We want potential adopters to see the amazing personalities that these sweet furry kids really have.  We work with the shelter and rescues to bring the dogs in for, what many of the shelter volunteers call, a glamour session.  The volunteers are wonderful and make it a day out for the pups while they are on their trip.  There is usually a yummy treat involved afterwards. 

 

I also just want to give a shout out to those amazing volunteers at the shelters and rescues. I have  witnessed so much love, kindness, hard work, sacrifice and tears from these women.  They give such a HUGE part of their lives for these innocent animals.  I am so proud to call them ALL friends.  Please consider helping out by donating your time as a volunteer, foster (VERY needed) or funds (also VERY needed). 

 

Check out below for some great images of the pups and for some hilarious behind the scenes images and video!

Behind the scenes fun!

Bonjour, everyone!

 I am so excited to share Angela & Joseph’s wedding with you today, which could have seriously been featured (and very well may be in the future) in ANY bridal magazine across the world. These two have impeccable taste, to the point where I cannot even describe how perfect every single detail was. It’s a good thing I’m a photographer, then, yeah?

From the insanely gorgeous floral arrangements and venues to the decadent lighting, there wasn’t a thing that wasn’t thought of and carefully planned. And when I saw Angela in her wedding dress, I almost lost my breath! (Can’t even imagine how Joseph must have felt seeing her walk down the aisle)!

One of my favorite spots we photographed the bridal party at was the beautiful Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens in Akron, Ohio. This place is just incredible! So many gardens and features that just make the best scenery for this couple.

 

What a joy it was to photograph you on this special day, you two. I hope your years are full of happiness, light and just as much beauty!

 

Here are a few shots from their picture-perfect day:

Welcome back!

 

Let me begin by saying that I had the greatest time doing the session I'm about to post.  This was not the first time I've worked with Isla and I enjoyed every minute of it at Mentor Headlands beach.  Isla just has one of the sweetest, most fun personalities!  It was a long drive for all of us so we had dinner afterwards and I got to see her little personality even more.  If you know Isla, ask her how to make chocolate milk! Best instructions ever!!  LOL I love her to pieces! 

This was part one of Isla's special session.  We planned a two part session along with all the details.  Isla is wearing a beautiful outfit from Tutu Du Monde.  Did you know we keep some of these dresses in stock in our studio?!

 

 Without further adieu, meet Isla!

Hi again, everyone!

 I have a hard time facing the fact that little Adley is already a whole year old. But you know what 1-year-old birthdays mean?  Cake.  And smashing cakes, of course!

 Before I get to the adorable photos I know you came here for, I have to share The theme.  Adley's mom wanted peach colors so I came up with the idea of doing a peach farm stand feel.  I LOVED putting this set together!! Can we take a second to shout out to Little Boats for custom making this adorable outfit to match!

 And that, my friends, brings us to a preview of her 1-year smash the cake photos.  As you can see, Adley had quite a bit of fun at her smash the cake session.  Who wouldn't, am I right?  You do not want to miss these pictures. Check them out below!

Today I have a very special maternity blog post for you. It features a stunning and confident woman who was an absolute pleasure to photograph. As you can see, she is gorgeous!

We met at the studio for her session. Her hair and makeup were done and she was ready to shine! 

We talked beforehand, and decided to go for a dramatic, dark and sultry look on these images. I definitely think we were able to capture that!

 

Without further adieu, check out these gorgeous photos!
