    If you have landed here...bless your soul.  Welcome to our little tiny corner of the cyber world, based out of Cincinnati, Ohio. Below you will see favorites from our sessions we do professionally, and also loads of personal nonsense that we hope at least will entertain you.  If nothing less, you can keep up on our adorable children.  Really, they are worth the trip back here time and time again in and of itself.

    My name is Jess.  My hubby is Brett.  We are crazy about each other, our 4 babies, and our art.  Welcome to our world.

Possible Email Difficulties.

Well, the new site is in the middle of being launched. (YEAHHHHH!!!!!) If you know me well, you know that patience is a virtue that at times….I mildly lack. Man-o-man, has this been a test for me. During the next 72 hours there may be difficulty if you are trying to email me. If you email me and don’t get a response, please also try Brett’s email at brettzwo@gmail.com. After the site is up, our normal email will be jess@studio3z.com.

Be on the look out for the site, the cards to come in the mail (FINALLY!), and lots of fun shoots coming up. Also, be sure to schedule your spring photo sessions early, because it will fill up quick.

Just finished editing a wedding and found this new favorite. There is something about this I just love…Perhaps the symmetry, and the beautiful couple.

Enjoy the weekend everybody. Stay warm.:)

YIPEEE!!! I won.

Little did I know when I went downstairs at 7am to begin breakfast, that this was my special morning. I quickly checked my email, and then I saw it. An email from Blu Domain saying to check their blog ASAP. GASPPPP!!! I had entered a contest with them a couple weeks ago, and I knew the winner was going to be announced soon, and I couldn’t wait to see what the creative individual had came up with. (I had NOOOO idea I would even come close to winning.)

I went to the blog of Blu Domain, and THERE I WAS. MY NAME. MY ENTRY. I WON.

Let’s just say there was some screaming, burning breakfast, and by 7:30 my kids were making fun of their Mom who was repeating, “I WON! I WON! I WON!” What did I win you ask?? The winner receives one FREE ticket to the Brianna Graham Workshop (a $1450 value!!!) Brianna is one of my most favorite photographers. You can see her work here: Fabulous Brianna Graham

Here were the details:

1. Make a $10 (or more if you are feeling generous) donation to St. Jude Research Hospital – you must have proof that you made the donation.
2. A picture is worth a thousand words… Take one photo that represents who you are, and where you live, but you cannot be in the actual photo. Think creatively on this one!

Here was my entry:

As always, thank you for the support, and I am looking forward to what this year has in store for all of us.:)

David and Laura’s Beautiful Wedding…

David and Laura planned an intimate wedding very, very quickly. In fact, we received an email from them exactly 2 weeks before the wedding day! As soon as we heard the details, we knew it was going to be a really cool and different type of wedding. They chose a very beautiful restaurant in Mt.Adams (near downtown Cincy), called The Celestial, and the atmosphere was very romantic. We had never met them prior to their wedding day, and when Laura walked in….WOW!! She was stunning in her Greek themed gown and jewelry. Every thing about this wedding was so low stress, and simply beautiful.

Thank you two for choosing us. It was a pleasure meeting you, your families, and you both were so awesome to work with. Best wishes to you as the years go on.:)
