Maternity + Couple Photos on Film in Northeast Ohio | Jani & Eric

Published in Family, Photography

I had the opportunity to photograph Jani and Eric for maternity/couples portraits and wanted to push myself to leave the digital cameras at home. I am so glad I stuck with all film! Jani is a portrait and wedding photographer herself, and she brought incredible style along with her beautiful maternal glow. Jani and Eric hadn’t had photographs of themselves made since their wedding, so she was excited to celebrate her relationship with Eric as well as the expectation of their third child. Their style and connection fueled the entire session, and the light was magnificent for highlighting their beauty as a couple and a growing family. Film isn’t necessarily what I get most excited about, but it completes my vision for the way I see and photograph the love and interaction of couples and families. For

Focus on Children’s Portraits and Siblings – Powell, OH Family Photography

Published in Family, Photography

I grow to appreciate and enjoy family photography even more every single time I am out with a family. I love how more families are going back to the practice of enlisting professional photographers to make their family portraits and then sharing and enjoying them by displaying the photographs in their homes. It seems like the proliferation of digital everything killed the family portrait in American homes for a while, but I feel like we’re coming back around! It may sound odd to be excited about this if your thought of a family portrait is something made 25 years ago […]

Our New Baby! Harper Rippel | Birth Photography in Canton, OH

Published in Family, Photography

Here is a little glimpse into something you’ve never seen from me before now: birth photography. Birth photographers are a dedicated and hardworking bunch. You must have your bags packed and ready to go at all times, being “on-call” for delivery for 2-5 weeks, ready to go at a moment’s notice! Thankfully, I almost always have a few cameras close by, because our second son decided to come 3-4 weeks early. Even though I don’t know how much birth photography you’ll see from me in the future, I had a blast. A new baby is just about the most significant […]

Engagement, Family – Dover, New Phila. OH Photographer

Published in Assignments, Family, Photography

I had the opportunity to shoot with Marci and Scott after connecting with Carley York of CYork Photography. I am going to be working with Carley as a 2nd shooter for Marci and Scott’s wedding this summer, so when Carley was unable to make it to shoot their engagement session, she asked me to help out. CYork is based out of Virginia, so it was much easier for me to step in and have the opportunity to work with this beautiful couple and their family. This session took place in Orrville, OH, less than an hour or so from New […]

Pittis – Dover, New Philadelphia, Ohio Family Photographer

Published in Family, Photography

Yesterday I was able to go out and shoot with the Pittis family around downtown New Phila and then later move out to the Pleasant Valley area. This family has loads of style, and New Philadelphia’s eclectic back alleys provided a great backdrop and texture. As a photographer, I love being able to walk the alleys every once in a while and find great spots like these. Dover and New Phila. have a ton of great areas that photograph with lots of character, and we had a great time walking around and exploring while making these photographs. Not to mention […]
