Three, Cincinnati Family Photographer

I can't believe how far behind I am on blogging... this sweet session was from back in 2017 when I was visiting Cincinnati for photography sessions. I'm so thankful that my clients have continued with me through my years in NY, but I'm also thankful to be back - we were recently able to catch up with these three for little R's four year pictures! Hopefully I[...]

Shiloh, 6 Months - Cincinnati Family Photographer

BRRR. That's all I really have to say about this session. Cincinnati has some really unpredictable weather in the fall, and peak leaf season doesn't aways coincide with warm weather season. Family photo sessions can sometimes take place with more than a bit of chill in the air! This little dude was a trooper and as long as we kept his hat on he bald little h[...]

Simply in Love, Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

So there's been a trend in wedding photography for 10 years now. I guess at that point you don't call it a trend anymore? Anyway, there's a trend in wedding photography that the focus should be on all the details that compromise a wedding day - all the trappings, if you will. The flowers, dress hanging, the ring and the centerpieces. I take those photos (qui[...]

Keep it Silly, Cincinnati Family Portrait Session

If there's one thing kids are good at, it's being a bit silly. There's a meme floating around the interwebs this fall. And I'm going to have to respectfully disagree... cancel that, I'm going to have to vehemently disagree. PLEASE let your kids be silly. Don't make them sit still and smile for their whole photo session. And don't hang all their happiness on [...]

Hope and Healing - Cincinnati Family Photographer

Creating normalcy in the face of a scary times - it's a very admirable goal for the parents of kiddos with very un-normal things going on. My little buddy Elijah and his family have been regulars here at Mischief and Laughs - with baby photos, new pregnancies, and family sessions, we've celebrated all of their milestones together. This new chapter of their l[...]

Oktoberfest Themed Wedding, Cincinnati

Um, can anyone say FUN? When Adam and Andy told me that they wanted to have a German themed wedding with an oompah band, I knew instantly that they were planning the most fun wedding I'd photograph all year. I wasn't prepared for how much fun they had planned that night, though! They turned Adam's parent's backyard into a German Biergarten with a packed danc[...]

Sun Drenched, Cincinnati Family Photos

Sweet summertime. I'm so sad you are leaving me. You gave Cincinnati a good run though, with 90 degree days and humid nights all the way until the calendar said autumn was here. As a family photographer, I adore the late evenings full of sunshine and the sunsets that are thick and glowing. It creates such a beautiful richness in the light. I'm so thankful[...]

Keep the Babies Happy, Cincinnati Family Photographer

Kids are fun. Especially toddlers. My job - a family photographer - is so super awesome because it gives me the opportunity to be completely silly. I lace up my sneakers and get ready to play. But you know, sometimes kids just aren't digging it. Sometimes they don't want a weird lady with a camera following them around. Sometimes they just want to wear a min[...]

Little Bunny, Cincinnati Newborn Photographer

I'm going to miss this studio... if you are new to the blog, you probably don't know yet that I just moved to the Cincinnati OH area from near Rochester NY about a month ago . Moving a business is hard, for so many reasons, but leaving this beautiful studio space was especially difficult. You'll be seeing more of the gorgeous exposed brick studio walls in th[...]
