• Welcome! I'm Faye and I have been capturing and preserving life's important moments for over 18 years. Over the years I have photographed a variety of subjects. However, I'm most passionate about families and weddings. I'm confident my experience, compassion for others and my obsession for gorgeous light will result in beautiful heirloom photos to be cherished for lifetimes to come. If you are new to the site, peek through my portfolio. Or you may want to scroll down through the blog to view my most recent work along with some of my personal adventures. Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

If you know me well then you most likely know Jenny too.  To say this family is near and dear to my heart is an understatement.   I love them as family….not just friends.  Jenny and I refer to each other as “my person.”  (If you are a Grey’s Anatomy follower…you will totally understand what this means.)  I’ve known Jenny and JJ for many years and it has been so fun to watch them become parents earlier this year.   Jenny is a complete natural in her new roll as a mommy.  We all knew she would be amazing. She has lots of nieces and nephews that have given her good practice.  JJ makes a wonderful daddy too!  He naturally has a calm and very easy going demeanor.

Okay…lets talk about their beautiful daughter……the ADORABLE Savannah!!!!  Nickname Savvy.   This baby is SO Loved!001How do you not melt over that face!002Jenny is also a talented photographer in Columbus.  If you follow her blog or work then you know that she can get Savvy’s smiles in full!  I worked and worked and got a few…but I’m afraid Savannah’s got the common curse of being a photographers kid.  Where only her mama can get her to smile for the camera LOL.  That might be most moms these days w our camera phones!?!

Actually I LOVE her serious/pouty faces too.  They are just as cute.  Here’s one of my favorites with her little grin.003004   005006007257BOOM!  Got one 🙂008We pulled out her favorite toy Bun Bun for the very end.  I had a feeling it would help us get those big huge laughing smiles from this cutie.  009010011She was getting SO tired and really only wanted to get her paci and have her mama hold her in a comfy position.  (below left image)  Jenny you are SO beautiful!
012013Think I went overload on photos of mama and baby girl?  To bad…It’s my blog and I do what I want 😉  I had to get plenty of Jenny and her sweet girl together!

My FAVORITE!014015

Back in High School I was blessed to spend all 4 years with a large group of kids that became what I would call “my crew”.  We were together 1 class every day,  3 hours every Monday evening, a couple of weeks in the summer and almost every Saturday in January thru March/April.  This group I’m talking about was show choir and ours was (and still is) called  Classic Connection.  (click the link and you can see some you tube videos of us all.  Sadly Marcus and Lindsey’s senior year show has not been posted to youtube yet…hmmm…maybe this winter I will work on that 🙂   I remember Marcus being hilarious, kind and laid back and Lindsey also had a great sense of humor, was kind and very intelligent….she’s a Notre Dame grad!!!  Go IRISH!

Fast forward 15-20 years and here they are….amazing parents of the cutest, sweetest and FULL of energy boys.  I get very excited when friends from school contact me to photograph their families.  It is so wonderful to see them as loving parents.  Lindsey’s parents actually needed extended family pictures updated….as in the last time they had a pro, they had no grand babies.  We were able to coordinate schedules to all be in our hometown at the same time (weekend of my 20 year class reunion)  These are all shot on Jo an Linda’s property….where Simon and Lindsey grew up.  It was the perfect setting as you will see…..so without further ado…..here are some highlight from their extended family photo session.

We started with Simon and Amy’s family.  Their little girls Kenzie and Reagan will make you smile for sure!!!

001002Updated family photos….check and mark!003004Marc and Lindsey are raising some sweet boys!   Shortly after getting to the house I got to meet their oldest Cooper.  He told his cousins after meeting me that I was pretty and made sure none of them walked in on my while I was using the facilities!   That’s a good young man you are raising there M and L!   005006Joe and Linda…don’t you love their smiles!007008Sisters….009010011I love Elias smiling so big at his daddy….and Luca’s sweet face looking right at me.  One of my favorites here!
012I stopped over a few days before our session to double check their property and visualized this shot immediately once I saw these three barn doors.  After asking Joe if it was safe enough to squeeze each family in….he loved the idea I had come up with!  Another favorite!013014015016The kids really wanted to play in the leave….I told them at the end it was time!  So much fun!!!!017
