My favorite thing is when we pick a location and everything just comes together. One of the wedding colors is teal and there were so many pops of it everywhere we turned! Dustin and Jacob were so much fun and I loved getting to know them more before their wedding. They rescued their dog Phoebe only a few weeks ago and she did so great too!


Heart Locket Necklace

Category: Misc. | April 7th, 2021

One of my favorite things is a piece of jewelry with meaning! That could be something simple like a bracelet as a birthday gift or as rare as a precious gemstone. And when you add a photo or two – well that is extra special! I recently reached out to a local friend, Megan Fenno from Fenno Fashion, to source a couple of great locket options. They make a great gift for mothers, grandmothers, and your wedding party! With Mother’s Day coming up I just had to share. Be sure to look for Megan’s pink mobile boutique around Cincinnati at craft shows later this year. She specializes in handmade accessories. She started the company after receiving a BFA in fashion & accessory design from Savannah College of Art in Design in 2007. Be sure to check out her remembrance jewelry made with flower petals too.

the perfect gift



Best Mother’s Day Gifts

Category: Misc. | March 12th, 2021

More than ever we appreciate the women in our lives. They hold down the fort and have taken even more roles this year from teacher to trusted advisor. With Mother’s Day almost here and much of our shopping changing to online, I have a few ideas for that special person in your life. You know she has been wanting portraits of her favorite kids or grandkids. Why not give her the gift she really wants and let her pick the session date with a gift certificate. Or maybe you want her to have a fun day of pampering with her makeup and hair followed by a branding session. Maybe you are wanting ideas for a Mother of the Groom gift. Be sure to check out Groovy Girl Gifts’ Mother’s Day gift idea list and their jewelry collection. Thank you to Joe from Groovy Girl Gifts for partnering with us on this post.
