Thank you for coming by my page in hopes of lighting up your days a little bit. I am wishing everyone best health, happiness + grace. Although about everywhere is closed, most are now providing E-gift cards, delivery & shipping options. Now is a rough time + we all want to support everyone in any way we can possible. This is going to make us grow stronger. But until we all stay home and only leave for our essentials & if we are essential + do what we need to, the date will keep getting pushed farther and farther back for us to go to work, provide & live our lives. I know it's hard but we need to stay in our own areas for this to end.
To look on the brighter side, Nature is healing while the population is under quarantine and after all of this ends, everyone will rise higher than they ever have before. We have been given the chance to get organized, spend time with our families, set our future intentions. I hope everyone takes full advantage of this chaos.
Stay home. Be safe. Keep busy.
I am now offering E-Gift cards again with 10% off of any amount and I am also booking for May, June + on. Happy to announce my Online Shop is now open all of my available prints, paintings, drawings, stationary + more.
I will put a list of small businesses you can still shop, eat + enjoy for the time being while in the comforts of your own home without even leaving. I will also be adding cool fun things I think you would love to do by yourself, your spouse or with your children at home.
"'A poem written by Kathleen O'Mara in 1869.
And people stayed at home,
and read rooks,
and did exercises,
and did art and played,
and learned new ways of being,
and stopped and listened
Someone meditated, someone prayed,
someone met their shadow,
and began to think differently,
and people healed.
And in the absence of people who
lived in ignorant ways,
dangerous, meaningless and heartless.
The Earth also began to heal,
and when the danger ended and
people found themselves,
they grieved for the dead
and made new choices,
and dreamed of new visions,
and created new ways of living,
and completely healed the Earth.
Just as they were healed.'

I am a natural lighting lifestyle, wedding + small business photographer. 2020 I will begin my Lifestyle, Elopements + Small Business Photography journey. Just a slight difference but a huge change for me. An amazing change. Capturing you, what you love & all of your important milestones.
Random creative + spontaneous sessions are my absolute favorites. The more unique + simple the better! Throw out the poses & direction, get comfortable & have fun. You know how you feel in your spouses arms, holding your babies, playing with your family... Show me. Show me your intimacy, your pride, your laughter. Take me somewhere that makes you feel emotions, take me somewhere with meaning to you.
Lifestyle includes: Couples, maternity, birth, fresh 48/newborn, family, birthdays, & children. I also love announcements, proposals, gender reveals, anniversaries & surprise sessions! If you're a small business owner, I love collaborating, creating amazing flatlays + photograph your goodies or space. Whether it's coffee, food, apothecary items, boutique style, art etc and I also love to help promote. Small Business is very important to me. Prints of my photographs are now available to order.
If you visit & follow my Instagram or subscribe to my mailing list, I send + post a lot of Model Calls and Unique sessions I come up with to photograph.
I have been given the opportunity to photograph my first Elopement at Yosemite National Park by one of my longest friends & I could not be any more grateful. I will be off to California for a couple of days July 2021! I am hoping this will make my way into only photographing Elopements (plus lifestyle + small business of course). So I will only be booking 5 Weddings for 2021 to focus more on Elopements + traveling. Small intimate weddings are up there with elopements as laid back, amazing and beautiful. Larger weddings or Traditional weddings are more about everyone rather than just the Bride + Groom. I want to focus on them, their love, their beauty & their details. Two people coming together who wholeheartedly loves one another & only wants to be with eachother for one of the most special days of their lives. To go somewhere beautiful. To go on an adventure. The intimacy it brings out. To be full of emotions and only focus on the other instead of a room full of people. No worrying, just enjoying. Everything is about you.

Once this is all over, I will have more & more pop ups @ Beck + Call with my different sizes of my photography prints. Photographs of Dayton, plants, walls, coffee & food, buildings + more. I will only be selling one of each photo to keep the uniqueness of the prints. The Pop Ups will also have my watercolor paintings, handmade stationary plus a few other NEW items you’ll just have to pop by to see!
Beck + Call is one of the best Women & Children feminist shop around + owned by 2 amazing strong women. This shop is bright and airy, affordable & sooooo cute. Clothing, jewelry, bath & body, books, nostalgic little toys + some more cute knickknacks you want. Since the unfortunate and safety reasons we have decided to close our doors. But we have made an online shop through Facebook to continue ordering and supporting our small business shops and to continue supporting employees and families. @beckandcalldayton
You can now visit my online shop under 'shops' in the menu bar.

I hope to see you all there!
As things are the way the way, Some things have changed or haulted for the time being. My goal is to be okay staying home, not leaving + everyone is doing the same. I am forever grateful for the clients I have had from the very beginning & clients I have gained throughout my journey. Things change as I grow and my business grows and you stay by me. I have very many goals + adventures I want to achieve. All of them include a camera in my hand. It bring me so happiness also to watch all of you grow through the stages in life. Documenting life, love + family is beyond worthwhile. This coming year's goals are big and I know I will make them happen. Do you know what goals you want done in 2020? It's time to start getting more organized over this way. A different year doesn't change you, you do. I hope you get everything you've ever needed or wanted. A long, happy + healthy life.
