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[...]

I'm absolutely thrilled to be back in Cincinnati! And this first session back in town was a wonderful kickoff to my fall photo session season! I'm so happy that clients that have used me for their family's memories in the past have come back for new sessions as a Cincinnati family photographer. This beautiful parents were with me for maternity phtoos, newbor[...]

Up and Away! Cincinnati Documentary Wedding Photographer

I’m torn. I love pretty storybook pictures just as much as the next girl. You know, the ones where a couple is perfectly posed with light streaming in, looking like they walked right off a magazine cover. But, man oh man, I adore the action. The real life documentary moments that happen on a wedding day are where my passion lies. That look dad gives when he [...]

Going Home to Cincinnati!

  (All photos of my family in this post are by Gabriella Hunt Photography. She is fabulous.) In a few short weeks, this wonderful magical few years we've spent in the Finger Lakes will be finished. We've so enjoyed this time in the area. Well maybe not the longness of the winters, but certainly the rest of it. Living here in the Finger Lakes re[...]
