Cakes for a Cause 2014 – Mid-Ohio Foodbank

It’s that time of year again, when local artisan bakers come together to tempt the masses into parting with their dough for some artfully crafted dough to benefit Central Ohio citizens who utilize Mid-Ohio Foodbank. This year’s event did not disappoint; the cakes were gorgeous, the catered food was delicious, and the dough was definitely parted with. This year’s event raised $9500, or enough money to feed 35 people every meal for a solid year. I so appreciate being able to photograph this event every year and am equally appreciative of everyone else who participates to make it such a fantastic success! And a very special thanks to the planners extraordinaire, Emilie Duncan and Kasey Conyers, who dreamed up this wonderfully worthy venture and work so hard to bring it all together every year!

Becky and Jeremy – The Columbus Athenaeum wedding

I couldn’t have asked for a nicer couple (with nicer friends and family), or nicer weather, to kick off wedding season at the beginning of April. Becky and Jeremy’s wedding and reception were drenched in elegance, and took place at The Columbus Athenaeum, in the Macedonian Room and the Large Theatre. It’s truly one of my favorite places for weddings with all its history and beautifully unique rooms. And with the weather being so nice we were even able to do portraits outside. You never know in April.

Spagio “Dishes Up the Stars” event benefiting The James Cancer Center

I was very excited to be asked back to photograph the Spagio Dishes Up the Stars event, this year benefiting The James Cancer Center at The Ohio State University. It was a bone-chilling evening, but that didn’t keep the crowds from showing up to not only nosh the delectables made by notable chefs from around the country but to bid on fabulous items all to the benefit of The James.

The Potts-Griesser Family – Columbus Ohio family portraits

Here soon, Michelle and Mike will be adding a new family member, this time a boy, so Mike won’t be so vastly outnumbered. As it is now, it’s four to one and hardly fair. Mike doesn’t seem to mind too much though.

I enjoyed seeing Michelle and Mike and the girls at their house on the morning of Super Bowl Sunday. We did our hang-out-on-the-couch pictures and watched the younger girls play like they were grocery shopping in the pantry. And then while Taylor watched the younger girls, we did some baby bump photos. I know I sound like a broken record (google it if you must) but I really do love seeing and photographing these major life changes for my clients, seeing them every year and how their families grow and change from being the baby bump to a walking, talking toddler with thoughts and desires and personality. It’s a great thing!

Beth has a birthday – Columbus Ohio event photography

What’s more fun that a birthday party in the middle of the week? Not much!! When my client contacted me about photographing her mom’s birthday party at T Murray in German Village, I was thrilled to do so. Such a great family, with lots of loving friends and family to help celebrate a fantastic milestone in Beth’s life. Happy birthday, Beth!

Jennifer and Francisco – The Columbus Athenaeum New Year’s Eve wedding

What better thing to do while ringing in the new year than starting a new life together? That’s what Jennifer and Francisco did at The Columbus Athenaeum on New Year’s Eve: in the middle of a great cocktail/NYE party, they had a wedding. Their friend performed the ceremony and Francisco surprised Jennifer by singing his vows to her. It was quite lovely.

And fun. Was it fun! Lots of merriment and celebrating of the new life and the new year.
