the canning family.

where oh where to start.

robbie and i feel so lucky that this family has come into our lives, and by such a fun way. long story short, laurie and one of our bride’s dad know each other…and after we posted those wedding images, laurie started keeping an eye on our work. we then announced that we’d be traveling out to VA. for our “almost annual” road-trip sessions and she emailed about wanting some images of her family. fast forward 6 years (i think! laurie, has it been that long?!) and here we are again. documenting this wonderful family and their growing girls (who we absolutely adore). these four girls are some of the most self-confident, most unique, smartest, and funniest individuals we know. it’s been fun to visit and see what wonderful people they’ve become.


thanks you guys for making the trip, for making us laugh and for buying us ice cream afterwards. until next year!

true story…robbie and i thought about just photoshopping ourselves (and homer!) in this one. i’m pretty sure this is one good family to be in.

oh my goodness, does it get any better?

aiden on the left and ellie on the right.

paige on the left, and kyra on the right.

these girls are all such GOOD PEOPLE. the have great role models in laurie & mike. they’re all so different and it’s wonderful.

how lucky girls are to have sisters. LOVE. ๐Ÿ™‚

this is 100% paige. i love it. and her. she’s pretty awesome.

the baird family.

we always seem to have such a great time with this family whenever we see them.


i’m sure you all remember betsy & tom (from their earlier post!)

it was not only their wedding anniversary, it was another anniversary of sorts as well. the property and all of the land that the baird’s farm is on has been in the same family for over 100 years. how cool is that?

some time back, mrs. baird found an old family photo that was taken not too far from where the image below was taken with the date written on it. that date was september 26, 1913. she contacted us and asked if we’d be able to do a shot to match where the original one had been taken. always up for a fun challenge and happy for any chance to see this great family, we gladly agreed!ย  this is the part of being photographers that makes our job SO INCREDIBLY cool. it was a fun change of pace and we’re still working on the finishing touches (which include large scale portraits that are both in color and sepia to match the original print) robbie has done an amazing job; we’ll post images soon!

we also spent some time getting some updated family portraits…below are just a few of our favorites.


l. & r.

rosie & bently the family dogs! every time we go to visit the farm we always take homer and the three of the run around like crazies and go swimming in the pond. it’s pretty cute. we couldn’t leave without getting a few fun images of these guys!

everyone should do themselves a favor. when you’re having a bad day you should look at this image. you can’t help but smile. you’re welcome!

Suzanne - As always, great pictures that capture a beautiful family. However, the fact that you refuse to capitalize the beginnings of your sentences drives this English teacher crazy!!

betsy & tom…and baby to be!

i’m sure you all remember these two.

here’s a refresher.

we met up with them for two fun reasons:

1. they celebrated their two year anniversary! we photographed them next to the tulip tree they planted during their wedding ceremony. (*fun, right?!)


2. they’re going to have a baby! they brought along some fun props to announce to their family & friends that they’re expecting a baby in may!

these two are going to be AMAZING parents…and we *kinda* can’t wait to meet the tiny babe. ๐Ÿ™‚

YAY betsy and tom!! you guys are so much fun.

leslie & rocky. the wedding.

we’re happy to introduce to you all the new mr. & mrs. lane!

leslie and rocky had a BEAUTIFUL fall wedding in ohio that was accented by great pops of color, happy families and amazing friends.

now, we’ve had a lot of “happy” brides this season, and really, what bride isn’t happy on her day…but i’m going to share with you that leslie wins the prize for most excited and happiest bride we’ve ever photographed! both robbie and i were able to spend some time with her right before the ceremony just chatting and talking about old times (robbie and leslie went to H.S. together; it was fun to hear a few of their stories!). even though this was my first time meeting leslie, i felt like we’ve been friends for years. i like people like that. ๐Ÿ™‚

their ceremony was outdoors, and was the perfect pairing of funny & sweet moments.

we also snuck in a bit of time to take some portraits in the ever changing lovely fall scenery & colors that ohio is known for.

we DO love a good fall wedding.

leslie and rocky…congrats again you guys…thanks for being so cool. and awesome. and fun.

lots of love.
