First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the….well that will be my next session with this lovely couple!   I was honored when you two asked me to photograph your wedding years ago and now I’m just as excited to be a part and document your newest member of your family!  I can’t wait to meet Felicity in just a couple months.  Don’t  you just love that name???  I do…but I’m a huge fan of less common girl names that start with “F”……so I may be a little bias 😉

We started at their home they just moved into a few months ago in the St. Anne’s Hill district.  If you aren’t familiar with that area of Dayton…do yourself a favor and drive through and peek at some of the old historic GORGEOUS houses they have there.   They just don’t build them that way anymore and luckily people like Hilary and Paul are keeping them thriving! We started outside their home and then made our way down to the Oregon district.

201202This one is my favorite I think…..but it’s really hard for me to decide this time!203204205206207208209Doesn’t this picture below on the left look like we are in one of the beautiful metro parks?  Nope…that’s their back yard!  Whats fun is that Paul was not excited about me shooting back there as they have been doing a lot of work to the back yard…but also have more work ahead.   I assured him this spot was picture worthy and looked gorgeous to me!210211212213214

This couple is the real deal!  These two are just as sweet and beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. I was fortunate enough to photograph their engagement session, Mehndi and Wedding six years ago.  SIX YEARS AGO???  Has it really been that long?   Roohi suggested we could do their maternity session in Ault park (where we did their engagement session) and I thought it would be perfect.  I literally had to restrain myself from running across the park when they arrived as I was so excited to see them again!  I’m so happy for you two and can’t wait to meet your new little peanut!
