Grace's Smash Cake | Kent Children's Photographer

Grace will be 1 on March 7th, so last Sunday was the perfect time to try a smash cake session.  Mom thought she was quite the comedian and texted the picture below to me the night before the shoot.  I looked at my phone and was horrified.  Really?!?! this is the cake she wants to use??  Seriously? she's an art teacher for pete's sake, what's wrong with her? what am I suppose to do with that?  Yes these were all the things running through my head as I held back the tears.  I tried to be positive and convinced myself that i could make that work, I could fix the frosting, maybe write her name across the front and get rid of the gigantic "1".  Thank goodness she called me before I went into full panic and told me it was a joke.  She got me good!!!

Here's is the final result from the session.  I think Grace looks like a little chunky angel baby.

Polar Bear Jump

On Saturday I attended the annual Polar Bear Jump.  The event brought over 380 jumpers and raised $40,000 for the American Cancer Society.  I was there to support a few friends who were making the plunge.  It was super fun to watch but personally I rather just donate the money and not jump into a freezing like in February.  That being said, I'm offering some images for sale.  All proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society.  Click here to view/purchase the images.

This was my favorite shot from the day!!!   brrrrrrr . . . .

I was so excited to get a call back from E&S for Cam's 6 month session, I first photographed them for their xmas card pic in November.   Well time flies and Campbell is 6 months now and such a cutie.  She put up with 2 outfit changes and my crazy studio set up, what a sport?  Thanks guys for another fun morning, I'll be in touch soon with the rest of your images

Kristina & Jake | Akron Engagement Photographer

The teaser image was fall looking but these definitely look like winter.  It really was an amazing day, cold but no wind with a beautiful blue sky.  
Kristina & Jake are awesome and adorable and I loved hanging out with them.  

K&J wanted to bring their sweet puppy, Dakota, and I was more than thrilled. 
 Loved her carmel colored eyes and those huge floppy ears, I think I found Baci a girlfriend.
This might be my favorite from the day, just because the snow covered trees look so surreal.

Hope you guys enjoyed your sneak peak!! Click here to view and/or purchase any of the prints from this session.
Stay warm and I will talk to you soon!

K & J Engagement Teaser

From the looks of this image you would think it was a beautiful fall day, instead it was a balmy 20 degree February day with snow to our knees. But these two cuties were great sports and we had a lot of fun.  K&J enjoy your teaser and I will have your sneak peak up very soon.  Thanks for a great afternoon, can't wait for your wedding day!!!!
