“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”  ~Emily Brontë

There is something so refreshing about shawn & laura. they are so genuine, and the kind of couple that you want to be friends with the moment you meet them. he is funny, and has the greatest laugh {EXACTLY like seth rogan}. and laura is so sweet and comfortable. they have the kind of friendship that  every solid love should be built on. so sweet and unassuming, no pretense, and perfectly fine with whatever comes their way.  we had planned an engagement session in april, and the rain actually let up the day of, so we were able to start the session outside.  shawn plays guitar , and it made sense for him to play for laura icon smile april showers and a beautiful love.  {Dayton, Ohio engagement photography} so the busy neighborhood bustled around us…and in this perfect little oasis of blooms and bushes, we captured this sweet romance…

shawn & laura have made it a habit to play in the rain, and it seemed perfectly fitting to end the session in the puddles on the brick street, with kisses under the umbrella.

Why hello there! Thanks so much for meeting me here! :) I am a bit unnerved at the prospect of blogging, but excited to give it a shot. First, my disclosure: I am NOT a writer. so forgive me in advance for run-on sentences and uninspiring wording…. i try to say what i want to with my camera ~ if you know me personally, you know that i love to talk, so surely i can learn to write my thoughts. icon razz Debut for both my blog & SPRING!!! {at long last...}

As with any working creative/stay-at-home mom, when it comes to photos, my poor little family seems to get the leftovers of me, while i give friends and clients the best i have to offer. i don’t think that’s ok. don’t get me wrong, i love my clientele, and am so grateful for them.  but my loved ones deserve my best effort, too. so i started planning this shoot in my head months ago. The ducklings worked the perfect charm they were supposed to- i would have never gotten these priceless expressions if i had only begged and cajoled~    the sun came out, just for a day, but it was all we needed.   it felt so good to laugh and play and drink in the sunshine.   Thanks to my dear friend, Chelsea-for the lovely images.
