Sweet Little Gabby

Yesterday Alicia brought little Gabby in for her first session. Alicia happens to be one of our favorite people, she is one of my daughter's dance teachers. We were thrilled to see her get married and twice as thrilled to see her and Keith have a beautiful healthy baby girl. She is already 2 months old! I can't believe it! Here are a few from our session yesterday. Don't ya just wanna kiss her! :)

Kristen and Andy

Yesterday in Cincinnati we had an unseasonably warm and gorgeous day, so how fitting to spend it shooting a wedding. Yesterday Kristen and Andy tied the knot and they did in style to say the least. I started my day with Kristen at her Mom and Dad's home in West Chester. What can I say about this family except they were some of the most gracious and sweet people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Their daughter is no different and that made my day and my job even better. Now as you scroll down you will also notice that Kristen happens to be stunningly beautiful. Which also makes my job even better ;) Andy looked quite dashing as well....and both families seemed so thrilled to be adding a new member into their unit. After the ceremony at St. John the Evangelist the party started at the Marriott for cocktails with the reception to follow at the Manor House. The group partied the whole way through and I think that was the most fun I have ever seen guests have at a wedding. Two wonderful families and a wonderful celebration...a perfect day for Kristen and Andy

The flowers were stunning!
The ceremony is over and the couple is ready to celebrate their new life together.

At Sharon Woods for portraits.

After Dark in Austin

Last month I went to Austin Texas for a photography seminar called AfterDark. We shot every night until about 2am which, of course, is why it is named that. I had a great time and learned a ton. With Austin being the live music capital of the world the models that we were working with were musicians. It was an awesome experience of working and learning from each other. Such an awesome group of photographers were there. Here are a few shots from my time there.

In honor of Veteran's Day.

A couple of months ago, I did a charity session for a wonderful little family. The Dad was being deployed for a tour in Iraq and before he went the Mom contacted me about a family session. I donated my time and met them at Ault Park in Cincinnati to capture a few moments together before he had to leave for duty. This week I will be sending him an album as a gift from Chapelo Photography to show our appreciation for his gift of service to our country. Tomorrow is Veteran's Day and as a veteran myself I would like to thank him and all of the men and women that sacrifice everyday for our freedom!

Connor Michael Denning

My nephew is finally here. Connor Michael Denning was born on October 25th and weighed 7lbs 2.9 oz. He came in a week ago for his newborn session. Here is a collage of his session. We tried for over an hour to get him to sleep, but it was a no go. He didn't want to miss anything apparently. Isn't he gorgeous. I am one proud Auntie.
