Happy (super late) 3rd B-day, Blake!

The cutest ones are usually the cheekiest ones, and Blake is no exception. But we got to celebrate his birthday in March with our ridiculous little family, and there was no shortage of fun or noise.  Here is the whole set, full res.

It’s Nearly Easter, so why not post Christmas 2016?

The title says it all. We had our family Christmas in Dayton in the early part of 2017 because that’s how cool and chill we are and not at all because we’re all so ridiculously busy that it’s the only time we could all manage to be in the same room. <ahem>

Here‘s the whole set!

Thanksgiving 2016

I love my family. Deeply, wholly, and forever. So when my brother and SIL initiated a conversation about using Thanksgiving as an opportunity to get out of town for a weekend, everyone included, we jumped at the chance. We all bundled into our cars and met up at Murphin Ridge Inn in West Union, OH. We spent time together, drank and ate all our meals together, and let the kids run wild in the countryside getaway. It was awesome and perfect.  These are my people and I love them greatly. These are some of my best shots, but you can see every one here.

2015 Mishmash

Prepare yourself – this post will be chock-full of a total mishmash of 2015 photos. Frankly, I don’t have the patience to go back and post things in order and a little at a time anymore. I wanna get to recent stuff, darn it! So, here are enough events and photos to blow your face off – in no particular order.

Liberty Tower (all found here)

Once in a great while, photographers get the unique opportunity to shoot somewhere that cameras normally are not allowed. This is one of those times: Liberty Tower, located in downtown Dayton, has been around since the 30’s and is a very architecturally unique building in the Art Deco style.

Mackinac Island (all found here)

Keith and I managed to escape, child-free, for a trip to Mackinac Island. It was glorious. We relaxed, we biked, we walked, and we generally enjoyed time away from being responsible.
