Special Occasion Family Portraits at the Bailey Arboretum

Well, after months and months of elastic waist pants, old tee-shirts and bedroom slippers, I think we are all ready to get dressed up and feel a little glamorous, right?

Fourteen Year Old Guy Portraits

She opted for a more formal look, and I can barely stand how absolutely stunning they are. I felt a little like I was photographing a celebrity family. Is it a little unfair how good-looking […]

Zoom-Mitzvah Celebration Photos

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s how to treasure the people in our lives and the moments that come with them, and to be creative! This shoot really encompassed both of those things. This was a bat mitzvah that was certainly not what the family had envisioned, but they made the most of […]
