The Graber Family | Ohio Spring Maternity Session

One of the reasons I enjoy being a photographer is because you have the opportunity to build strong relationships with your clients. You know the kinds of clients I’m talking about! They are the ones that found you when you were just starting out. They trusted in you to take photos of their family or wedding. This is exactly my experience with the Graber Family. When they asked me to shoot their wedding, they knew it would be one of my first weddings I shot. However, Rylie and Ryan saw something in me and knew I would be successful at this job I love. They also knew that I was still going to be around as a photographer after they got married. I was so excited when they reached out to me again to capture their second maternity session!

Those first few clients, like the Grabers, are awesome because they are so supportive. They not only get to experience working with you during a session or wedding, but they get to see you grow as a person and a photographer. I have been so blessed with the opportunity to keep taking photos of the Graber family after they got married. I shot their first maternity session, their little girl Blake’s one year old cake smash, their family photos, and now this maternity session for their second child. This family is just amazing! ❤️

The Rutherford B. Hayes Center in Fremont, Ohio is such a lovely place for any photo session! The walkways and surrounding grounds of the estate are so beautiful during any season. In addition to taking photos of Rylie, we also made sure to get some photos of the whole family and just Blake by herself. She is so adorable!

It’s so important to make sure you schedule a maternity session with your photographer! When you are expecting, you still have a lot of time to get things ready and most importantly, time for yourself. Once the baby comes, you are devoting all of your time to taking care of your little one. Even if you already have a child and the maternity session is for your second child, it’s challenging taking a care of a newborn no matter what stage of life you’re in! Making the time to document these special moments is so important!

Finding a photographer that you know and trust is the best way to make sure you receive the type of photos you want. You chose your wedding photographer because you loved their style! Wedding photographers also shoot families because they want to continue that relationship with those clients. Watching my wedding couples change and grow by starting a family is so special! This is why I love to take maternity photos for my past wedding clients! It’s just as important to document your family as it is your wedding day.

I would love to schedule a maternity session for you! Be sure to inquire with me to secure your date!

No matter what the session is, there is more to a photo session than one thinks. It’s more than just showing up the day of, smiling for photos and then receiving them a few weeks later. It’s the time, energy and thought process that I personally put into each session (the value), that sometimes people […]


I love making connections before I shoot any engagement session, especially when I already know half of the couple! Dakota and I both work for the same company, Sunrise Cooperative in Ohio. I work in the marketing department and he in the energy department. His area of expertise deals with propane gas, fuel delivery, off […]


I’m so thrilled to show another beautiful fall engagement session! Look at those colors?! Every season is wonderful because even in good ‘ole Ohio, I can find the beauty in the simplest things. Someone once told me, “Oh, you call that art? We call that junk!” I literally laughed out loud! It’s amazing the difference […]
