Horror Themed Fall Mini Sessions Promotional Shoot | Davis-Linden Building

I partnered with my friends over at Creative Compositions to put a terrifying creative twist on this year’s fall portrait mini sessions! Late last Halloween season, I threw this idea out to some friends on social media and they were super stoked for it. After a year of brainstorming and months of planning, the moment is FINALLY here! In this two part event, Travis will be dress up in authentic costumes of the classic horror film icons - Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers. Check out the images of our promotional shoot earlier this month at the Davis-Linden Building and around the Historical Huffman District in downtown Dayton.

Wes' Senior Prom Portraits | Cox Arboretum MetroPark

You know that song, “Does he love me I want to know, How can I tell if he loves me so?" At one point in time I did believe the part of the lyrics that it was in his kiss, but the song is wrong in this case.

Lori's 39th Birthday Portraits | Something Old Dayton

I first met Lori back in December when my husband and I hosted our very first Friendsmas, but it wasn’t until after Anthony was promoting the boudoir mini event I co-hosted back in February that we started talking about putting something together for her session.  After a couple of weeks we finally set a date, started piecing together and finalizing details. The morning of her session, a little birdie told me it was her birthday - so I packed up my equipment early and made a pit stop at the store to buy her some cupcakes and the cutest little floral arrangement to make her session a little extra special.

How to Rock Your Boudoir Session | Misfit & Co.

Hey Ladies, let’s chat about boudoir sessions! If you’re reading this then you’re probably either curious, nervous, or have already booked a session. Boudoir photography has become increasingly popular over the past few years and for a very good reason. They allow us to escape the things that emotionally bog us down in our every day lives, pamper ourselves, creatively express our inner beauty and sexuality, but most of all empowers us to be confident in our own skin.

Why You Should Take Advantage of InstaMeets | Misfit & Co.

Over the summer I started to attend InstaMeets (if you’re not familiar with the term it’s basically a group of Instagram users who get together to take pictures and videos) that were organized by an old high school acquaintance and fellow photographer and I can’t express to you how much fun it has been.

Here’s a few reasons why I like them and you as a starting photographer, or even a starting model, should take advantage of them:
