Kathy Ann and Gage

Something I love about my job, is being able to see kids grow and change from one year to the next! It was my pleasure to photograph Kathy Ann and Gage for their annual family portrait again (you can see last year's here).
Here are some of my favorites from our session. I especially love the ones with the dogs!

Meet the Goettke Family

November has been a long month... No, on second thought, the month has flown past (at a faster pace than other months this year)! Anyway, this is a long overdue blog post of images from my shoot on the 6th with the Goettke family.
I love this family (I thank my aunt Ginger for marrying into it so I could get to know them)! Such a fun, loving, and outgoing group of people. I always enjoy the chance to work with them and spend time with them.
Here are a few of my favorite shots from a beautiful autumn day in the park:

Sarah's Senior Portraits

We had an adventurous photo shoot Sunday! We traveled around to several locations around town and got to see a a few of Cincinnati's landmarks; I learned new things (like one now has to pay to park at the Art Museum- how long has that been in place??); keys got lost (and fortunately found again). But it was a really fun day with beautiful fall weather and a beautiful girl. Here are some photos from our time together...

Kraus Family

My favorite family portraits sometimes aren't necessarily the ones that make me think "Wow, that's an excellent photograph". Instead, I often prefer the family portraits that make me laugh out loud! With three young brothers, of course we got a lot of laugh out loud moments during the Kraus family shoot! Those boys' personalities just shine in each photo- not to mention they are all three so stinking adorable.
Most of my favorite shots from this session look best as black and white. That is great since Becky is planning on creating a picture wall in their home using black and white images from our shoot!

Alex's Senior Portraits

It was my first time going to Fernbank Park, and I have to say, I loved shooting there. Train tracks right by the Ohio River? Awesome. I will be going there again!
There was a slight mist of rain during the first half of our shoot, but we were lucky enough to avoid a downpour (after having already rescheduled a few times due to rain). I had a great time exploring the park and the tracks and getting to know Alex and his mom. Here are some of my favorites from Alex's senior portrait shoot:

Cassie's Senior Portraits

It was a lot of fun to photograph Cassie for her senior pictures. She is absolutely gorgeous, so my job was really easy! Here are some of my favorites from our time together last week:

9.11.11 The Slaven Kiddos

And the award for messiest photo shoot goes to... These guys! Between the creek and the birdbath, and the falling fence posts, things got pretty dirty! But I wouldn't have had it any other way. It really was a lot of fun. The three year old took it upon himself to give me the grand tour of the family's awesome property and the one year old made it her job to keep us all on our toes. It was certainly an adventure! And with a toddler and a preschooler, that's what life is all about: adventures, getting dirty, and having fun. Here are some of my favorites:
