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. These two share such a special bond, you can tell with the way they interact with each other, how they talk to each other, but most importantly in the way they look at each other - especially in the way Wes looks at Kayla when she’s not looking or preoccupied with a boutonniere.

Lori's 39th Birthday Portraits | Something Old Dayton

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.

Couples Fall Portraits in Yellow Springs | Peifer Orchards

Every day I am thankful that I’m slowly breaking through my introverted shell to create and capture moments like these, but what warms my heart the most is the friendships I gain with my clients.  I get to seem them grow and go through their own stages in life which is the most beautiful blessing of all.  I am excited to see what the future has in store for Kayla and can’t wait for our next adventure together!

Taking the Plunge from Hobby to Career | Misfit & Co.

Taking that plunge was (and still is) scary as HELL!

It’s scary because it’s new, unpredictable, irresponsible (since I didn’t have a lump sum of money saved), out of my comfort zone, and to be completely honest with you – I’m afraid of falling flat on my face.  I know that failing is all part of the process of success, but that doesn’t make it any less terrifying and I’m going to take a wild guess that since you’re reading this you feel the same way too.

Saying Goodbye to My First Apartment | Misfit & Co.

I had no idea what was in store for me in the upcoming years when I signed that lease.  I experienced my first heart break outside of high school, I soon understood the responsibilities of being an adult when no one was paying half the rent, and why my mother worked so much when I was a kid.  Most of the twenty-one-year old’s that I knew were enjoying being a carefree adolescent when I was juggling three jobs to pay my bills and put gas in my car.

I don’t regret a single minute of it.  I would do everything over again in a heartbeat.
