It was a little rainy in Indiana on Saturday, October 2nd. The drive took a little longer than anticipated. But the day was basically perfect.
I know these people. These are some of my favorite people. The younger brother to my best friend; I’ve known this groom since he was a baby. I’ve known the bride for years. Not as many, but YEARS. We’ve all shivered our butts off at Kings Island’s Haunt. And more recently, braved one of those 95 degree, 100% humidity, beautiful (insert eyeroll) Cincinnati Summer days for some engagement portraits.
I am so honored to have been asked to photograph their big (finally) wedding day.
Congratulations to Jordan and Eric!
-Love, Lindsey and Tiffany

The Christmas/Holiday season is my most favorite time of the year. And one of my absolute favorite things to do during this time is to visit the Ronald McDonald House on Christmas Eve. It is a privilege to capture families coming together to celebrate the season. Some residents, some volunteers, some employees; all together to share the season with “strangers.”
Every Christmas Eve, one HUGE group of family members and friends team up to cook, bake, and provide one heckuva tasty dinner. The Hoeh family has been providing Christmas Eve dinner for the House in honor of the late matriarch’s son, who stayed at the House while he battled cancer. I believe this year marked their 20th Christmas Eve dinner.
Following dinner, the House kiddos spend some time with Santa and Mrs. Claus and receive their very own sacks of Christmas presents.
Trust me when I say that pictures do not do the evening justice. But please enjoy a small taste of the magic that is Christmas Eve at the Ronald McDonald House.
Mind the delay as I wish you all Season’s Greetings and wish you a Happy New Year!
October 28th, 2017 started off as a cold, rainy day; with a little bit of snow mixed in. It was a beautiful day to capture the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, created by the American Cancer Society.
As with previous years, I was joined by several of my friends and colleagues to help me capture the event for the American Cancer Society. And while the day started off really dark, really wet, and really cold, walk participants and volunteers came out in large numbers. There were umbrellas, ponchos, winter coats, hats, gloves, and mittens; along with thousands of people to model them.
(in Latin America and among Latinos) a celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday and her transition from childhood to adulthood, typically involving a mass followed by a party.
My neighbor turned 15 this week.
When I think back on previous birthdays, I cannot recall my 15th. I remember my yearbook picture from that year. I can remember the music I was listening to and the movies I was watching. But I cannot recall the event of my actual birthday (sorry Mom.) Now, my 16th… that one I remember. But I digress.
My neighbor, Natalie turned 15 this week. And this milestone is one that stick around in her memory for quite some time. Her 15th is wrapped in Latin American traditions and celebrated with one heck of a party.
On Thursday evening, friends and family gathered to honor the birthday girl and celebrate Natalie’s quinceañera at the Marmalade Lily, in Loveland, Ohio. Guests dined on Puerto Rican cuisine and birthday cake; raised their glasses to several heartfelt and anecdotal toasts from family members; and bore witness to the changing of her shoes. She had a close-knit court of friends, one gorgeous gown, and let me tell you about her Chucks!
The father-daughter dance was followed by a “Happy Birthday” singalong, a beautifully delivered speech from Natalie, and a choreographed number performed by her court. Oh! and another rendition of “Happy Birthday” for Natalie’s fellow court member/bestie that shares the same date. It was a fun time for all.
The night kicked off with a Survivor’s lap around the track; followed by the Survivor dinner, additional track laps, some dancing, some carnival games, and a lot of general fun. In total, the event helped raise over $68K!
And I’m totally going to admit that while watching all of the fun, I found myself a wee bit nostalgic for my high school years. Note: I did say “wee bit.”
I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that fun was had by all.

The Josephina, Dry Ridge KY
Saturday in Dry Ridge started as an overcast (always rain-threatening, but mostly dry) day with temps in the mid-50s. Quite pleasant and balmy for the middle of December. For the most part, the rain held off for the first half of the day. We were able to get the first glimpse and some bride/groom portraits taken ahead of the rain. As soon as we started with the wedding party, the drops started to fall. And man did they fall hard. And never did they let up.
Dana’s and David’s wedding was a beautiful event, rain and all. Please enjoy some images from their very special day!
Congratulations and Best Wishes to the happy couple!
