i am so excited to share the news that katie grace albrecht, one of our associate photographers is back full time! she just graduated from Ohio University with a commercial photography degree. she has been working for us for almost 2 years remotely and locally when home from school breaks. she started out as an intern and we quickly fell in love with her! she has an incredible drive and work ethic. she is extremely loyal and dependable. katie has the sweetest personality and her photography is just awesome! what i love the most about katie is that her style is uniquely her own but has the blink feel of mine. we both have a love for colorful, fun, and happy images. she already has a spring shooting schedule full of families, seniors and weddings. i'm so excited to see her be a part of blink full time. who knows where we'll be this time next year, only time will tell! i'm posting a few sessions she recently did but also check out her latest work on her new blink blog here !
ok ... these two have been patiently waiting to see their engagement session. here it is, they are both so darn cute, kind, and fun to be with! i photographed nate's sister's senior pictures last year and i've been in love with their family ever since. i could go on and on but really, i know you all just want to see the images we created together. thanks to both of you and mary (mom) for having me be a part of documenting this union. i could not be happier for nate, maggie and their entire family :)
we're finally getting some of our spring weddings cranked out. jenna + jake were so incredibly sweet. i really enjoyed being in a different part of ohio for this wedding, i especially loved the architecture. enjoy!
our youngest of four boys turned five this past april and we decided to celebrate with a big bash. as the youngest, i don't think we have had an official party besides running to the grocery, grabbing a quick cake and documenting it with a few pictures so we would remember that yeah, we celebrated all your birthdays. i'm in the middle of the wedding season, moving and selling homes, and heading to my 20 year high school re-union next week. this weekend we are spending it at the lake with the family and it's been a nice break. i decided to grab the birthday pictures and edit a few for me. i really never edit my own pictures. once in a while i will grab a few and blog them but most sit in folders, RAW out of camera in a number of external hard drives. i keep telling myself one of these days i will organize and start printing them. someday! for now here are some from nicko and william's 5th birthday. i went all out. we had a cake made for each one, a photobooth, a bouncy tent, cotton candy, popcorn, face painters, ballonman, and the biggest hit, the CANDY BAR! these are huge in the wedding industry right now so i decided to put one together for the boys party and of course we all LOVE candy!
