    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.

Julie, Aaron, Emma, Audrey, & William

We had the most wonderful evening with this super sweet family. The weather was glorious, and these children were some of the best behaved I’ve ever seen. Emma and Audrey were just a treat to photograph; sweet smiles and giggles (and jokes about Brett) constantly! William, well he was the BEST baby. Never made a peep, and completely content, even with big sister squeezes!

Thank you Aaron and Julie for doing a family session with us! We had a great time with your love filled family.:)

candice, dan, & stevie

It was such a pleasure to meet and photograph this sweet little family! Candice and Dan are photographers themselves based out of Charlotte, NC. What an honor it was that they drove up to Cincinnati for a family session with their super sweet little girl, Stevie.

We had such a beautiful morning hanging out getting to know these guys, and being witness to their precious family bond.

Special thanks to Kelly at Cinci Makeup and Sam at High Five Salon for meeting so early in the morning! Also, big thanks to Finn Meadows Farm for the use of their farm.

Candice and Dan, you two are just awesome and your little girl is beyond precious. Thanks again for coming to visit!:)

Kelly, Brian, Devin, Adam, & Luke

We had a nice evening with this fun family of five. If you know me, you know I adore sets of three brothers….We have our three, and then Brett is one of three. Naturally, I loved seeing these three brothers play, interact, and love on each other.
I honestly don’t know who had more fun, Brett or the boys as they climbed up trees and looked around for cicadas.:)

Thanks Kelly and Brian for sharing your family for an evening! We loved getting to know you all. :)

Jaime, Corey, Cate, Anna & William {family}

This sweet family of five traveled 4 hours in for a photography session with us, and we had our fingers crossed that the rain would hold off…..thankfully it did!!  Jaime and Corey met and fell in love in Cincinnati, so they were excited to have their family photographed in an area that was so special to them.

They are such a loving and cuddly family. We loved watching the way they all interact together.:)

Jaime and Corey, thank you so much for making the trip down to see us! We are honored to capture this truly beautiful time in your lives.
