Baby Sharp #4 … we can’t wait to meet you!

I’d say, meet the Sharps, but if you’ve read this blog before, you already know them. Not only have I photographed them often, I also have the pleasure of photographing the families of Heidi’s siblings too…and the whole amazing group of them took me on vacation to document them in one of their favorite places: Knisley Family in Kiawah Island.  I’ve photographed almost all of their weddings, maternity shoots, newborn baby shoots & family shoots (some even across the country)…I can’t tell you how much I love getting to watch the family grow through my camera. I already have an in, as Heidi’s sister Hayley is my best friend…but that they ask me back time and time again means so much!

What is special about this particular family is that Heidi & Nate were not only my first newborn shoot when their daughter Em was born, they were also my first maternity shoot & a few years before they were my first official wedding as ‘Cassidy Dawn Photography’! My dream is that my wedding clients will hang on to me for their big important events in their life and the Sharps have certainly done that!  So grateful for them!

We met up for a casual mini shoot in their adorable home and captured a few photos before this cute family grows by one more! I can’t wait to meet Baby Sharp and see her through my camera!

Fun fact: Both Heidi & Hayley have gone into labor right after my blogging their maternity sessions…so since I know Heidi is ready to get this show on the road…I thought, what they hey, let’s give it a try! Heidi, here’s hoping ;)

Strickland Family | Ohio Family Photography

Hmm…brrr. It’s basically awful (but beautiful) weather lately, so I thought I’d share a nice fall family shoot. You know, to rub in the non-warmth we have. This is one of my favorite families around & it’s been a while since we did a shoot, so I was so excited when they set it up.  I’ve got a handful of my favorites to share :) Enjoy! chillicothe family photographer chillicothe family photographer  chillicothe family photographerchillicothe family photographerchillicothe ohio photographer  chillicothe family photographerchillicothe family photographer chillicothe family photographerStay warm out there folks…well, if it’s cold where you are…you know what I mean.

I think the cold is messing with my mind. ;)

2015 Senior Team Member : Amanda // Chillicothe High School Senior

These seniors I tell you, they impress me everyday. I’ve got a big write up about why I love photographing seniors so much coming up soon…but for now, let me just say…these “kids”, they are amazing. Amanda is nothing short of that. She’s as smart & sweet as she is gorgeous! I am thrilled that she is part of my Senior Team this year…and I can’t wait to show off the images from our first shoot (yes, I said first ;). I’ll give you a hint, her hair in that shoot – one of my favorite parts of the entire thing!

We met up one fall afternoon/evening and just walked around town & a close by “country” location and looked for great light & chatted. That’s about the extent of my shoots…we have a blast. Low key and relaxed. I love learning about them and hearing of the exciting plans they have coming up soon. What an amazing time of their lives, I am just honored to have the tiniest part in their senior year. Here’s a handful of my favorite images from our shoot!

Tiffany & Ryan – Winter Wedding

Just a couple of weeks ago, I met up with the ever adorable Tiffany & Ryan for a 1 year anniversary shoot. I love the images so, so much, but before I share those…I thought I’d share their actual wedding. They were married last January (2014) on the most gorgeous winter day. I love winter weddings so much, so you can imagine how excited I was when she first contacted me about her January date. She looked flawless in her dress and every detail was thoughtfully planned out. Here’s a small look at their perfect wedding day! winter wedding photography winter wedding photography winter wedding photography winter wedding photography winter wedding photography
