OSU College of Nursing 50th Reunion 2014

As in 2012, I was invited to photograph some of The Ohio State University College of Nursing’s 50th reunion festivities, this year starting with a donor appreciation wall dedication at the college and ending with a reception and the homecoming parade down High St. in front of the Wexner Center’s Mershon Auditorium. Being a lifelong Buckeye, getting to stand in the middle of the street photographing The Best Damn Band In The Land was a pretty heady experience. And, earlier, watching the reunion attendees interacting with the current nursing students who were dressed in period uniforms – seeing the attendees recognize uniforms they wore when they were fresh out of college and practicing – was a really nice touch.

Nicole and Nathan and Joey makes three – Dawes Arboretum family photos

It was mentioned at our shoot that it had been six or seven years since I’d photographed Nicole and Nathan’s wedding, so I was very excited to reunite with them and meet their newest family member to make some photographs on a damp Wednesday morning at Dawes Arboretum, where I’d photographed their engagement session many moons ago. The nice thing about shooting in a popular park on a Wednesday morning after it had rained for days on end is that you pretty much have the whole place to yourselves. Me likey. And me likey these pictures too. Have a look.

Mary’s Family – Columbus Ohio family photographer

She’s not my cousin, but she will eternally be “Cousin Mary”. She is the cousin of my dear friend Karen, and that’s what Karen has always called her to me, “Cousin Mary”, and she’s like family (both Karen and Mary’s family). With Karen’s help years ago, I photographed Mary’s wedding, and now I’ve photographed Mary’s growing family, first with one kid and now with two. With aging parents in the mix, and both her sisters, this time we got together to make some sweet family pictures with the whole gang. Have a look.

Will and his family – Columbus Ohio family photographer

Will is simply adorable, no doubt about it. He’s sweet, active, thoughtful and all kinds of cute. I got to hang out with him and his mommy and daddy last week and he played on the playset, rode on the “gator”, threw all his cars on the floor, had a sword fight with daddy and got to play like a wheelbarrow. What a sweet boy.

Richelle’s Family – Ohio fall countryside family session

Richelle is a new friend and a new client and I was delighted when she invited me out to her sister’s farm in Centerburg for a family photo session with her family, especially because it had been nine years since their last family portraits!

If you’ve been alive in Ohio for the last couple of weeks you know that the weather has been hit or miss (mostly miss), and we definitely lucked out the day of their session with crisp blue skies, fluffy clouds and sunshine, albeit with gusty winds that added a chill and blew everyone’s hair.

The drive to beyond Centerburg was beautiful. Richelle’s sister really lives in the middle of nowhere, on a huge, lovely farm complete with cute little house, big red barn and grain silo, lots of woods and a big field of corn. The possibilities were endless. Have a look.

Rebecca and Stephanie – The Columbus Athenaeum wedding

Rebecca and Stephanie were officially married in Washington, D.C. a few months back, and currently live out of state, but came back to Ohio (where we all hope marriage equality will soon become a reality) to have a wedding celebration with friends and family. Even though they are already married, all the tender emotions were still very evident, along with the great love and admiration Rebecca and Stephanie share with family and friends. It was a beautiful ceremony and reception at one of my favorite venues, The Columbus Athenaeum, and the weather cooperated for some lovely outdoor portraits. Have a look.

Brittani and Leonard – Victorian Village engagement session

I liked Brittani and Leonard instantly. We hit it off like gangbusters at our first meeting and I just knew we were a great fit. They’re going to have a seriously amazing wedding next month and I cannot wait. I learned at our engagement session that their band has as their lead singer an Elvis impersonator. I mean, how great is that??

But, for the shoot at hand, we started and ended at their lovely Pottery Barn-inspired condo (complete with adorable cat) and also walked the ever-lovely streets of Victorian Village and even shot at Basi, where, as it turns out, we learned we have a few mutual friends. Small world. Gotta love Columbus.

Big Fish Networking – 15th Anniversary Food Truck Party

I’ve been a member of the Big Fish Networking Club since January of this year. It’s a great group of people coming together to build relationships and businesses. I consider myself fortunate to belong and to call the members my friends.

Last night was a food truck party honoring the club’s 15th anniversary. Needless to say, the theme was “big fish”, as in sharks – both human mascot and mechanical.
